Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Could somebody explain the towel snap the champ did in Final Jeopardy? If you are looking for an explanation of Scott's FJ! response: https://youtu.be/cq7Y3gYb2OQ?t=91 Even if GB goes for the TD on 4th they would have missed the 2-pointer. TB/TB was going to win the game. Audio alert: It's Buck & A...

A little embarrassing to miss FJ when the correct response was literally right in front of you. (I know he spells his name differently than Fred, but it’s close).

Too many player errors :o

Not all for this game, but about 20 correction suggestions from one person in less than 30 minutes. :roll:
Was one of them Scott is italicized in the DJ29 response? 😉

To the person who said he listens to audio of the show while driving...do not listen to this episode with this host if driving late at night or if you are very tired. Hopefully he shows more energy in the next nine episodes. JoBeth blew any chance of winning by going for the $400 Hemingway clue with...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

= It was a gimme for me, but I don't know much about the college and wouldn't have gotten it if the clue didn't include "oceanographic institute". The only oceanographic institute I know is Woods Hole and I was pretty sure that wasn't it. I followed two of the contestants with Hearst (although I wa...

Re: Tuesday, March 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sure wonder why Jean decided to go almost all-in on FJ wagering, when her chances of snagging the win were right up there with my chances of being voted Miss America. But I guess it's her extra thousand bucks to piss away, not mine, so go for it. This unreasonably pissed me off. Wasn't it a lock ga...

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

I gave him a 7. He seemed to get better as he went on. My biggest problem for me was he seemed to go overboard in kissing everyone’s butt. The players are supersmart. (Dude, you’re a heart surgeon and a Harvard grad. You have been around smart people before). The staff is wonderful. Alex was a wonde...

Today I learned that Angel Falls were named after a person. Isn't learning fun?
Same here. I never really thought about it but would have assumed it had some sort of religious connection. I got it right but it was one of those “put something down” things that paid off.

I don’t do Reddit, but I read about this elsewhere so I looked it up. Emily was apparently not a fan of Dr. Oz hosting her games.

...Kevin had to cover Emily. For some value of "had to". Kevin could also have decided that it was more likely that there would be a hard FJ! that they all would miss than that there would be a FJ! that he would get and Bryce would miss. Temperamentally, most people seem to view it the way you desc...

Just wow to Jean not even guessing to prevent a lock game, then throwing away a grand unnecessarily on top of that.
If she gets the last $2000 clue it still doesn’t break the lock.

Said Edwin Booth. Well, that's also a correct response... wonder how it would have been judged on the show. Ready to get ultra nitpicky? The letter was sent in 1835. Edwin was born in 1833, and John Wilkes was born in 1838. So at the time of the letter, he was a current father of Edwin and a future...
