It was MY character and performance that transformed that turgid three-hander into a complex family saga worthy of the Best Picture Oscar!! Forget Tandy, Freeman, and Dan fucking Ackroyd: I should have been nominated AND WON for "Driving Miss Daisy"!!!

I'm pretty good with 80s and 90s Oscar trivia but FJ didn't come to me right away. I literally had to go through each year in my head before I finally figured out it was Miss Daisy - which of course was the last best picture of that decade. Side note: I almost went with Terms of Endearment and Rain Man but I knew neither one of those originated as plays.

Thanks for starting the new thread.
I also blanked on Miss Daisy for Final, which is ironic since Iloved that movie.
Not able to come up with anything else, I guessed On Golden Pond because it did win a few Oscars (which ones I couldn't recall) and has a small number of characters. I recalled there were more than three characters in the movie (I believe its six in the movie) but figured maybe a few of the movie characters were added when they opened up the play for the silver screen. But obviously I was wrong.

I guessed Amadeus, which was a play in the 1980s and a Best Picture winner in 1985, and F. Murray Abraham did win Best Actor. It falls apart after that: there were nine characters not three, and no other Oscar winners.

I figured Final had something to do with the Rhine River, but didn't get to rhinestones. Maybe if I'd had more time, I would have gotten there.
Brian's suit did not look good on my TV. I wonder what it looked like in person. He comes across as gay, but clearly didn't get the gay fashion gene.
I also wonder if any of the PAs ever take contestants aside and tell them their clothes won't look good on TV. Well, actually now that I think about it, I guess the answer is No. If any of the PAs were giving out clothing advise, surely they would also talk to Mayim about some of the things she wears on screen.

I guessed Venezuela for Final. And I still think that's an acceptable answer. The boundaries for the Caribbean Sea include the northern coast of South America, and Venezuela is part of the northern coast.
Here's what Wikipedia said about the boundaries:
[quote]It is bounded by Mexico and Central America to the west and southwest, to the north by the Greater Antilles starting with Cuba, to the east by the Lesser Antilles, and to the south by the northern coast of South America. The Gulf of Mexico lies to the northwest.
I never disliked Brian, don't understand the intense hatred of him displayed here. But at the same time, I kept shaking my head at his clothing choices, wondering if he lives somewhere without any mirrors. Similarly, don't they have any mirrors in the studio?

I'm not a wagering genius by any means but the wagers for last night's FJ were really head-scratching. Maybe it's because poetry isn't my strong suit, but it made zero sense to me for Deb and Ben to bet all of their money. Deb didn't even try to cover Ben for second place, she just went all in. Not very strategic imho.
|by Anonymous||reply 157||April 20, 2023 12:35 PM|
Also, the judges should have asked Deb to specify her Deschanel answer. Zooey has an older sister Emily, but Ken ruled Deb correct without asking her to clarify which sister. I'm surprised she got away with that since previous players have been ruled incorrect for providing only a last name that can apply to more than one person.

I must commend Ken on his consistently remembering to use "they/them" with the non-binary contestants.
It's one thing to say they/them while reading off the contestant's card during the introduction section. It's something else to remember to say they/them at the end of the game while determining who the winner is.
With everything else Ken has to keep up with in running the game, remembering someone's pronouns seems like something that could easily fall by the wayside.

“Like most TV comedies of the time, M*A*S*H made use of a “laugh track,” generally pre-recorded sounds of an audience giving the desired reaction to the jokes. There was some uncertainty about taking this approach on M*A*S*H, given that the show was set in a war zone and regularly dealt with life-or-death scenarios.
It was agreed that it would be inappropriate for laughter to ever be included during scenes in the surgery room, even when jokes are made, so no laugh track was ever added to these sequences.“
|by Anonymous||reply 221||April 26, 2023 12:56 PM|
[quote]"M*A*S*H always had a complicated relationship with its laugh track, and here's why it finally ditched it towards the end of its run. M*A*S*H was originally a novel by author Richard Hooker - based on his experiences as a doctor in the Korean War - before being adapted into an acclaimed Robert Altman movie. The M*A*S*H TV show started as more of a sitcom, focusing on the hijacks of Alan Alda's "Hawkeye" Pierce and Wayne Rogers' "Trapper." It later became a dramedy, dialing back the wackiness to explore the toll the war took on its characters, including their trauma and PTSD."
[quote]M*A*S*H broke new ground for future shows and became one of the first sitcoms to challenge the laugh track. Considering the setting, showrunners Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds didn't want a laugh track at all, considering it inappropriate. Since comedies of the era almost always came with one, they were overruled. That said, CBS agreed to drop the track over operation room sequences. The laugh track used in M*A*S*H was also more subdued and became quieter in later seasons. More dramatic episodes like season 4 finale "The Interview" dropped it entirely, and by the final season, nearly every episode was laugh track free.

Even though Google pulls up the episodes on YouTube, going to YouTube and doing a search doesn’t necessarily direct me to the current day’s episode.
Sadly, adorable Eric got bested by a sometimes drag Queen from the DC area. Eric was cute, but generally in over his head; he was a potted plant for most of Double Jeopardy.
Shocked that none of the contestants got what I thought was an exceptionally easy FJ: President Ford in (1975), (so at the start of the Bicentennial), hung three lanterns in what space? Not sure how they all missed the Old North Church, which seemed very obvious.

I think even if because of the lantern mentioned in the clue I'd connected "One if by land, two if by sea" and Paul Revere and Boston, I still couldn't have come up with that specific location. But I guessed Bunker Hill so maybe I wasn't too far off?

I felt Cyrus gave one of the most awkward, cringe-worthy interviews. Ginger is, indeed, cute ... and married it seems.

FJ was hard.... I misheard or misunderstood the question - "Lemuel" is not in the title and I was trying to think of titles. I liked MaryHelen a lot - perky old broad - but Jude the Obscure was published in 1895... pretty far from "18th Century"

Plenty of commercials for the Masters Tournament are airing, including during Friday's game.
Mayim likely didn't say anything on air because when they taped Friday's game back in March, an exact air date for the Master's Tournament likely hadn't been set yet.
Also, don't forget the Master's Tournament airs in primetime on ABC, whereas the regular show is syndicated on various stations around the country. Thus, a CBS or NBC station that airs the regular show isn't going to want to promote a special show airing on ABC.

I kept pet rats as a pre-teen and everything Hannah said about them is true: they are sweet and very intelligent. One of my favorite rats (“Bonnie Ratt”) won first place in a rat contest and we were both featured in The Washington Post!
Hannah has a pleasing way about her and a wide range of knowledge. The other players have been awful. Was “Skyler” last night trans too? She was annoying with the giggle/laugh accompanying choosing a clue.
I liked the woman who owned an independent bookstore because she reminded me of someone I know.

Bonnie was very sweet and licked my fingers and was very loving. When she did that to the judges, I knew she had won them over and that I would win.
On topic: I still can’t believe Australia was missed the other day.
I think Hannah mentioning that she played Lee Harvey Oswald in her high school production of “Assassins” was her way of “coming out” as trans. She’s not as showy about it as Amy and her tattoo stories.

If she prefers to keep her gender out of the limelight, then the rest of us should respect her wish and should not spread baseless rumors about it.

I caught up on all 5 of this week's episodes in one sitting! Major mistake! Jeopardy! is not a show to binge like that. Best savored one show at a time with some time between shows. It felt like a chore to get all 5 watched instead of a pleasant distract from my day.
Because I was watching this week's shows, I got 5 doses of Ben. He is impressive! A really good player. He is also annoying. I was really sick of him by the time I was watching Friday's show. Was rooting for him to loose.
I will admit, my fondest for Ben began to wane when he announced Elaine as his wife. He was coming off as gay before that announcement. But the raising the roof gesture and mouthing "Hey mom" is also getting old. Maybe if I had been watching him one show per day, I might react better to him, but 5 episodes in a row of Ben was 4 too many!

I wish Ben was less timid with his bets.

Ben is even timid with his bets when he's sure to win even with the wrong response.

In case you missed it..Link to Full Vulture article........ What is interesting is the CHANGES the E.P. wants to make...Buzzer Speed Data?. ----------->>My dream is to have a second-screen Jeopardy! experience. People could get live statistics throughout the show, such as buzzer-speed data and how many attempts contestants have tried to buzz in. The other thing I’m quite fixated upon is the game board. The huge advantage of watching this show in the studio while we’re filming is that we see the game board full. The speed of these games move so fast that I often lose track of what category we’re in. That’s the other feature I’d love to be able to offer on the second screen: the full game board. One of the things we’re experimenting with in the off-season is figuring out where, within the real estate of a full-screen clue, we can include the category title — or whether we go for a slightly different shot sequence before we reveal the clue so we can see which category it’s coming from."

Please tell me he's not referring to his wife as "mom"!

Ben comes off as special. He’s mom’s special little guy. 🙄

Ben seems like a nice guy, but he certainly has a lot of nervous tics, doesn't he?

Once again, he benefits from weak challengers.

Sadly, this week Jeopardy is keeping it's streak of NON HOT guy contestants. It's becoming more and more obvious. We need hot players instead of mediocre fraus.

FJ: So Ben spelled it Benedict not Benedick? Is that what happened?
|by Anonymous||reply 565||May 23, 2023 11:31 PM|
I knew FJ, but I too probably would have written "Benedict" rather than "Benedick" and would have been ruled incorrect.
|by Anonymous||reply 566||May 23, 2023 11:32 PM|
I knew it was Benedick but sorta surprised that the judges didn't give it to Ben.
Yay, Lynne but I have a feeling she won't last long.

Oh, no, R567! That's exactly the kind of near-miss that gets NO sympathy from the judges.
Often, the champ's last night has a foreshadow vibe, although this one was damned close up to the last minute.

Didn;t they bring that female contestant who had one or two letters left to write in FJ before time was up? I believe they gave her another chance.

If contestants give a list of conversation topics to chat about, how dull must the others have been if "cornholing" was the best? Or did the producers just want to giggle?
|by Anonymous||reply 574||May 24, 2023 12:55 AM|
Yup, a misspelling.
He actually didn’t seem all that I to the game. He only came alive later on.
He was tired, maybe.

I thought she looked just like Jane Curtin, too ! It clicked when she gave the answer "Third Rock From the Sun".

I think it was the right call to not give Ben credit.
It wasn't so much a spelling error as much as a pronunciation one.
I mean a dick isn't a dict.
As for ben, I I thought he was pleasant enough when he first started playing a while back, but I began to get tired of him after a few days, especially when I learned he was straight.
Between him on Jeopardy and James on the Masters Tournament, I've had more than enough of the both of them to last me a lifetime.
As for Lynn, she'll be lucky tomorrow if she remains with a positive score by the time DJ starts.

Seeing as how the Final Jeopardy answer is only written and not spoken, that's a very strange statement.

R579 - The two are pronouned differently.
|by Anonymous||reply 580||May 24, 2023 2:50 AM|
Well, r579, to play devil's advocate, misspellings are often acceptable in FJ. Could Benedict be considered a misspelling of Benedick (just one letter off)?
Personally, I'd like to think the producers just wanted to get rid of Ben.
|by Anonymous||reply 581||May 24, 2023 3:22 AM|
Benedict Is not Benedick. It was a tough ruling, but I think it was the right one. Plus, there were a few times tonight where Mayim gave Ben a very large berth in terms of some of his answers. It almost sounded as if she was supplying the.correct responses. .

R582, Ben responded “quahog” three different ways and Mayim accepted it.

You allowed to misspell in FJ as long as your spelling results in the correct pronunciation.

Ben was adding ad hoc commentary throughout the game and sucking up playtime. P

They wouldn't accept "Romeo and Julie" even if it was only one letter off.

Matt Amodio said he's been living in Cambridge, MA for a number of years - and he couldn't get the DJ answer "Red maple trees' ? They are on every street in New England. There is probably one in front of his house.

For final, if the judges can see the answers immediately that'd give them time to signal a problem early? I suspect Mayim waits a few seconds to give them time on clues, where Ken is more willing to rule right away, risking a later reversal.

But the thing is, Mayim sometimes pauses even when the contestant's response is 100 percent clearly correct. That's what I don't understand.

R591, please see R586, who supplied the information in a more precise and helpful manner than I did. Though I think there was at least one other instance early on in last night’s show where the same thing happened.

Aside from the fact that mispronounced answers are frequently accepted, isn't the rule that if you pronounce an answer incorrectly but also correctly within the amount of time alloted for for the answer, you are ruled correct?
|by Anonymous||reply 597||May 24, 2023 3:37 PM|
Why did Ben cross put “Benedict” only to write the exact same thing underneath it? It seems like even he knew there was some issue with the spelling.
|by Anonymous||reply 598||May 24, 2023 3:53 PM|
R598, I'm thinking he realized "Benedict" wasn't quite right, so he crossed it out but then couldn't think of the correct spelling, so he just rewrote "Benedict."
