WTF was that TTT? Something like "Justin could be one of these" --> NEWCOMER.

Also I enjoyed the accidentally ironic conundrum - SUBTITLED.

25-9 works for the 16. Don't think there was a 6.

Sorry, wasn’t paying attention at the time.

Re the TTT, you’re a newcomer if you’re just in. It was previously used in 2008 https://wiki.apterous.org/Episode_4666. These clues are just so much cleverer and more cryptic.

OK, thanks. I still think they should be explained.

Is it me, or did the challenger get points for LOANED when there was no D in the selection. Would check on subtitles, but, ya know.

R9 Alt.: 6*5*6/2*7-4 = 626
R14 Alt.: (25-10)*(50+3)-9-7 = 779

I also heard that quite clearly too. The score should have been 100-42 instead if that was the case. Also, I'm pretty sure "troup" was said in R7 but DC didn't spot the invalidity of it.

How ironic the Conundrum was "SUBTITLED", if only they knew what was to come after this episode was recorded...

I also don't think that a tenuous link in meaning really makes something clever or cryptic. Like just in / newcomer.

I disagree, I think it’s smart.

(Interestingly, Paul would never take that tone with Eadie, Carson or Travers.)

Agree that sometimes those teasers could do with an extra comment when the joke is a bit niche or the connection tenuous.
In the case of "Just In", I got it, so didn't care... but there have been times.
