Re: Fun with GSN's "Common Knowledge"

She was impressive but I think they were all strong on that team.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Has it been mentioned before how many of the LL questions are amazingly similar to recent episodes of Mastermind? I’ve watched the most recent season over the past few days and that first question about Industrial Blue was a direct lift as were other recent questions such as the one about the cricke...

Re: Thursday, June 17, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had to watch this one on line so I missed bits of the game but FJ was easy since I’ve been to Vaduz. It’s like some crappy town in Alabama or Mississippi but they’ve got awesome stamps. Great game out of the blocks by Emily. It did seem a bit unfair for the BMS on those Browns, former CA gobs. Sc...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

The Beast did not disappoint! It looks like he got a makeover & he looks somewhat uneasy about it. He faced two so-so contestants and one stronger player as far as the first two segments but one of the “weak” players did fairly well in the final segment. They had 18 points but the Beast bested them ...

Re: Monday, June 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nice job by SG. What a relief after last week! I’ve never watched her before but she’s very good here. I was rooting for Katie because I was on a trivia team with her in Vegas one time. Very nice person. The latter half of DJ was awful. ICC & Khayyam were especially surprising TSs. I guessed Monroe ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I just went to the LL page to remind myself of the questions and there’s a notice in a red box that I may have submitted my answers too late although it lists my submission time (correctly!) as 10:28pm EST. I hope it’s just a glitch as I got either all 6 correct or 5/6 if baking soda isn’t similar e...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

She didn’t seem to realize who Olivia deHavilland was either. Plus she insulted one of the older contestants with a comment about how surprising it was that she’d know the answer. She was actually okay on some days but then the next couple of days there would be that odd giggle as she announced answ...

Yes. I completed my questions after I got a text reminder that they were due by 1am EST but I did see an email notification about the delay later on.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

Pretty bad. Constant off screen giggling was weird & she is not attractive. Plus she has some big pharma ads running which adds to the overkill. She was okay on BBT but enough is enough.

Re: Wednesday, June 9, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A number of years ago I saw The Rolling Stones in concert at Atlanta & they did a tribute to Redding. Mick’s pronunciation of Macon was tortured. Instead of rhyming with bacon it was rhymed with pecan. But that did keep it in my mind. One of my favorite songs ever.

Yeah I’ve never heard of story telling coach either. I was a Union member but I guessed lunch hour myself. That probably came about half a century or more before WWII. Nice game by the coach. I get the feeling that MB doesn’t look forward to the anecdote section.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

She’s okay one day and then awful the next. The other day a nice older lady new the answer to an 80’s music question and MB seemed flustered by that. Then yesterday she went with it when the older contestant knew a music question. Her constant interjections aren’t helping her case. And she’s still d...

She’s still a dreadful host. That voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me. Great effort by the team. The “professor’s’ questions were suspiciously easy.

Dull game. It seems like more & more TSs. Julia seemed a bit slower with answers AND ad libs today. I guessed Gulliver’s Travels but I had little confidence.

Re: Thursday, June 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was Julia the most awful contestant! Has she never seen the show before? Where did she get the idea that we she was supposed to interject after every answer and comment on her own Answers by saying "nice" or something equally banal? We viewers need to demand that they screen out people like that. A...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Osaka screamed in my ear once as I was walking in front of her at a tennis tournament. She’s pretty nasty. Still, she does seem a bit stressed so it’s probably best for her to take some time off. Her sister retired from tennis the other day & mentioned not liking the sport.

Easy FJ for me. Bravo is mostly garbage now. I knew Zaire for that DD and I’m not sure who was surprised when the contestant got it, her or me. As people always tell that hammer guy, always guess something. Alas, she didn’t do so in FJ. Bialick does ads for Neuriva and she mentions again that she’s ...
