Re: Thursday, May 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Full credit roll. Ben could not hear all of us across the country yelling the correct response to DD2. :( Kevin solved DD1 and DD3 to put himself in position to bet zero and survive missing the FJ! clue. This game did not go according to Hoyle as I thought it may have and I'm glad to see surprises i...

Re: Wednesday, May 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Buzzy might be my favorite guest host so far. Does anyone know if he's under serious consideration? Assuming Mike R. doesn't choose himself, of course. I don't want to retro-jinx her, but Jennifer has got game. Calm, solid and deep. She's fun to watch. Poll request for The Name of the Rose . I got ...

Misses, media clues, and Buzzy speaks added up to slow going.

Re: Wednesday, May 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Buzzy opened with a mention of $250K being matched to Hope of the Valley Trebek Center. Jennifer's chat centered around watching J! while in the hospital for a pulmonary embolism. Great to see she's recovered well and able to compete. Paul had some good gets while 5800 left him needing to bet big on...

Re: How Did Bill Whitaker Do as Host?

Bill through 10 games never seemed to me to be quite in the right place. I gave him a 7 as I did not have any reasons to go lower. Bill filled in and the show moved on. Nothing about Bill's hosting style was annoying while nothing gave the episodes anything special either. Viewing all the guest host...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Tied the estimable BarrettM yesterday, 5(4) - 5(4). Was sure he'd get the TV question, of course, but gave him 1 because I figured West Side Story was easier with the hockey angle as well. Looks like I was right, as he missed it. I missed the Mare question too (went with Hastings, because SE Englan...

Re: Tuesday, May 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Full Credit Roll alert. My scoresheet agrees with today's players that today was a tougher game and I'm not surprised the numbers were down in comparison to yesterday. Nibir acted out taking a selfie for his opening that included two "V" fingers. I suspect we may be seeing the last of such things on...

Re: Monday, May 17, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Buzzy was Buzzy and the host energy level sure went up after the Whitaker weeks with a more low-key style. This is California and my ears do not like "TORE-nuh-muhnt. My preference is Johnny's way of saying the word. It reminds of Kelly Ripa saying "horror" the Jersey East Coast way while I prefer t...

'80s TV

In 1982 all five Emmy nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series were from this police procedural.

To be fair, it was pretty much to only police procedural in 1982 (maybe Cagney & Lacey?).

Since Amanda wanted a tunnel from Hong Kong to Taiwan and puts Ukraine in Asia, I'm thinking geography might be a personal weakness.

Re: Friday, May 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Amanda opened with a run of POP CULTURE to earn applause. The lock was not always in place as after each DD there was no runaway. Kristen needed 700 more to avoid Amanda sewing up the match. DD3 was once bitten and twice shy with 4000+2400 following up the previous 3400-3400. Once again Amanda could...
