Re: Friday, February 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Keith is probably somewhere having an aneurysm. Or maybe a good kind of -sm.

That middle question in the bar category must rank among the great left turns in the history of the series. The question starts about bar stools for women over and under 34 and then ends up asking for "demographics"?

I'm not sure I'm more disappointed by witnessing the crash of Stephanie or finding out she's married. :(

Ravi ran a hot game all the way to the end of DJ. The middle contestant gets kudos for defeating him in spite of his near-runaway.

I think the TV category name was mispronounced. Short-lived is supposed to be pronounced with a long i, meaning having a short life.

Re: Friday, February 13, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Holy man, was that ever a close game, as a one-day game. If one didn't know the scores from yesterday, one would be amazed at the ability of the contestants to stay evenly matched right to the end of DJ. Final was an instaget for me, and then came the uneasy sensation, "Can it really be that simple?...

That was a hot game! Cathy rose quickly to dominate the game, but her hubris on the DDs was nearly her undoing. She had a runaway when she found that DD in DJ but something told me the gutsy bet that served her well in the J! round would not help, and from then on, she did not have a runaway. $3000...

I am shocked, just shocked, that the contestants didn't recognize Montreal. Moscow and Prague the 2nd largest cities in their countries?

Re: Monday, February 9, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was sorry to see Lydia crash and burn. I keep thinking about game shows where they have a last round in which only the top two compete. Many times it happens that the 2nd place contestant on J! is unable to get the leader out of a lock because the third contestant does so well. I suspect "George" ...

I agree that the writers were channeling Trebek's French-Canadian with St. John the Baptist Day (St-Jean-Baptiste). I don't understand why these contestants bet it all on FJ when they have a decent score for wild card status. And the leader offering the tie was just a stupid move. I got Lake Powell ...

Re: Friday, February 6, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Pretty good game. I don't understand why these contestants haven't internalized that $x000 is a good score and that they should stand pat on it instead of risking it all when they haven't got any chance of overtaking the leader. The middle contestant who won the wild card is very annoying with the s...

It's a good thing that I was not a contestant on this show, because I would have thrown a serious hissy fit during the commercial break. There are no songs in Les Miserables called "The People's Song" or "Paris." If the writers want to use Les Miserables as an answer in that category they should ha...

That was a hot game! At one point Lydia had a runaway, but then the middle contestant caught fire toward the end of DJ. And then the male contestant got reversed on a bad call and then got a couple of high dollar clues, making it anyone's game. But both of the non-Lydia contestants bungled their wag...

Re: Wednesday, February 4, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That game was just plain underwhelming. Once the male contestant made it a runaway, it was just a matter of watching for the other contestants to drop. FJ was an instaget for me. Did you know Minnesota has the only state motto in French?

Collin is an automatic semi-finalist, it is true, but I wouldn't bet on him becoming a finalist. He was quick on the button, yes, but he seemed genuinely unsure of himself on a lot of his responses, and he had the good fortune of playing two weak contestants. FJ was an instaget for me, as was the or...

all the presidents from Franklin Roosevelt to Lyndon Johnson (with the exceptions of Ike and Truman) were known by three initials popularly. The 30s, 40s, and 60s must've been a busy time for people that they couldn't even be bothered to state the President's name in full. It wasn't about time; it ...

That was painful to watch. So many wrong answers. I almost felt like turning it off, like I did to Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, on days when it was obvious that the kid was not going to win.
