Re: Friday, June 13, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Instaget FJ for me also. I think this should poll very high. Great battle between the champion and Whitney. I was hoping she would wind up on top at the end of the DJ round, but that last wrong answer (crap, I can't remember the clue) hurt her. I thought her response was going to be correct, but whe...

Alex hosted at least one other game show in the early 80s. Can't say the name of it off the top of my head.

Re: Thursday, June 12, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

What was with the weird edit after the first clue? "What is the Acropolis?" [jump cut to Alex] "The Acropolis is the hill the Parthenon is one of the hills." [audio hiccup, rest sounds like it was added in post] "Yes, Darren, go." I noticed that also. I don't have recording equipment so I could not...

Darren O'Connor: $22,400-$8,000=$14,400...now a 1-day champion with $14,400 Sari Laufer: $15,400-$7,001=$8,399 Molly Lalonde: $14,000-$0=$14,000 I think Darren just picked a nice round number rather than using any type of strategy.

Anyone besides me feel that Mit Romney was serious negbait in the political authors category? Ending the fed was never part of Romney's platform as far as I know. That's Ronnie's gig. I completely looked past that part of the clue. The "ran for President in 2012" just tunnel visioned me. Darren fel...

Re: Darren's wager

FJ was a category where I would have been tempted not to wager to cover from the lead. X2 I don't know jack about current TV, except for a handful of reality shows. I suspected Darren just did not feel comfortable with the category, and hoped the other two would miss. But then why bid anything subs...

Re: some peeves

I also get annoyed at players who b) insist on reading the entire category title instead of shortening it to one or two words This is a major peeve of mine.

Re: Wednesday, June 11, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

As for Darren's wager, I think it was most likely an arithmetic error: 15,400 x 2 = 30,400. Oops. It happens. Didn't Julia do something similar in one of her games? I was thinking that Julia had gaffed on one of her Final wagers in a non-lock game, but lucked out by vurtue of the challenger getting...

I knew she would win after I saw how aggressively the lawyer bet on the wrong answer. She had to bet aggressively because she was on the trailing end of a crush.

Re: Unemployed?

"Aspiring game show contestant"? That would be sort of an oxi-moron for someone good enough to get on the show. Surprised no one has mentioned Amy Nienaber from this season (March 28), who was billed as an "aspiring student". She was quite peculiar (sp). Wrote "Hi Ruth" on the telestrator for a sho...

FJ was a def instaget. And of course, I sang it... Yep. It was one of those if you know it, you have no trouble, but if you don't..... Any student of the Beatles should not have had a problem with that. Not surprised one contestant got negbaited with "Hey Jude" "Get Back" was also a possible fail. ...

Appreciation of Julia Collins

I was really hoping Julia would make it to 25 wins, and $500,000. Both good bench marks which would endure for a long time. Quite disappointed that she blundered so bad on the Final wager of her last game, even though it was a mute point of the outcome. Seems like figuring the best odds on a final w...

Re: Monday, June 2, 2014 Game Discussion

Absolutely horrible final wager by Julia. :shock: I was 'coaching' her through the TV to bet no more than $600 the second Double Jeopardy ended. True, it would not have mattered except for the difference of $1000, But.... IF the Irish dude would have failed to come up with the correct response, Juli...
