Re: Wednesday, April 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Let's see, why would they have added the full name "Ellen Finch" when the clue could've just as easily ended after the word "grandmother"...

Odd FJ wager from Kayla. Did she make a math error there?

That Final Jeopardy! was hard for a College Championship, in my opinion.
Really? "Big ditch"? 1914?

I don't think I would've celebrated quite that much for winning $399 more than the second place player, but hey, maybe she'll do better in the next episode. Somebody has to!

Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game will be very frustrating for those who have taken & passed the test many times without an audition or THE CALL in wishing this was their day to be on stage. Perhaps my proudest moment was the $2K in LT for knowing the name of the railroad early in the DJ round. When I was a lad my father ...

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Don't know how often this happens to others, but my local station aired five minutes of commericals (during which they must've been scrambling to find an old episode to air), and then broadcast the one where Sue Grafton was the the subject of the FJ. I wuz robbed! Hmmmmm. That's the episode that wa...

Re: Friday, March 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had "Allende" but couldn't pull the first name in time. Judges? Do I need a first name to distinguish her from her father, even though he wasn't a writer? I can’t see why, since the category was Women Authors. For poll purposes certainly check the box for Isabel, Isobel, Isabelle, etc. as long as...

Bad FJ wager by Paul, but it didn't matter. I remember that comic book term first being widely used in the late 70's to describe Will Eisner's A Contract With God, didn't realize it dated back to 1964.

Louisiana didn't make it into the union until the 1800's, so it was easy to dismiss New Orleans. There weren't very many reasonable alternatives to the correct answer.

So you jump through all the hoops you have to in order to get on this show, accrue a nice sum in your previous appearances and you've got a runaway so you can't lose, and you bet zero dollars in FJ? Zero? I’ll ask you the same thing I asked you not once but twice that you failed to answer back in t...

"Frond" helped narrow it down a lot, but I managed to drop the "e" too. Fans of Sam Peckinpah films should have nailed "Pat Garrett" as well, and fans of the Who would know the Cochran song.

I have to credit Snoopy for this get, as I had to credit Ellery Queen for the "A fine and private place" one. Indirect knowledge is better than none.

"Hanger" made it too easy for me since there's a Hanger clinic about a mile from where I live, and I know someone who goes there now and then.

"faraway" had me baffled for a moment, since it wasn't really all that far, but he was probably exaggerating for effect.

Well, that was a hot mess.You know, if Danyelle teamed up with that guy from "Law and Order," they could form a company called "Long-Hyland Ice-T."
