Re: Monday, June 11, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Details PLEASE from someone who was in studio about what in the world happened in FJ. I'm not sure what I should say, especially as I won't see how it airs for 3 hours. What did it look like on air? They showed it like normal, then an edited-in clip of Alex saying that they messed up but it didn't ...

Death to ABC New York for showing a very special report of a yacht explosion instead of my J fix.

Re: Friday, June 8, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ reminded me of the "stupid answers" category - you have to fight the urge to discard the too-obvious answer. I instagot it, but totally understand how someone might miss it. I'm with Econgator in that I could barely even process the clue. "Bord"? I've already forgotten the exact phrasing but "da...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Hi everyone! I'm Jake from New York. I'm 26, and I work for a nonprofit here in the city. I've been a fan since I was a kid and I would rent the Jeopardy NES game every week. Started getting back into the show recently - I don't keep a Coryat score, but I play along and try to do well. I've had two ...

File "presidents in order" under "things that WILL NOT STICK IN MY MIND". I could read the damn list of them for 72 hours straight and still draw a complete blank if you asked me who was president before Lincoln.

Re: Wednesday, June 6, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

My third grade self, who could name all the presidents in order along with their names, is ashamed of me for blowing that FJ.

I'm a huge baseball nerd, and I was irrationally hoping for stuff like WHIP, VORP, WARP3, and WHOOPS. Yes, these are all real stats.

Well I got murdered on this game, although Lucille Ball was a headslapper FJ for me. Did well on altars and chairs, horrible at most other things.

Man, Alex kinda rubbed it in on the missed Shaker Heights DD, huh?

1) I had never even heard of a Carolingian. I would have gotten murdered on this board.

Seeing as they tape weeks in advance, not likely.

I just had my audition today - an easy board will make me feel better about my chances of getting on.

Instagot FJ, but did not do nearly as well on the boards. I got a C in algebra back in tenth grade you Jeopardy Jerks!

Les Paul played a weekly show here in NYC until right before he died, I think that helped me remember.

Re: Ask Me Another

NPR shows don't have big budgets, especially when they're brand new. If a ringing bell can do the job for cheap, they'll use it. I think the show's biggest expense it its light-up APPLAUSE signs. I attended a taping of this show in Brooklyn back in February. My thoughts: -the show is genuinely funny...

Lewis Black is an extremely acerbic comedian. It's kinda his thing.

Total buzzer dominance for Chuck. Can't believe NOBODY got the FJ.
