Re: Monday, May 6, 2002 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game had an impressive number of what I call "singletons" - things where that was the only time Jeopardy has ever asked about it (at least in the Archive). And Bob knew an impressive number of them! I had 42/60, which I was pleased with given the number of things I had never heard of. Coin flip...

Re: Monday, February 5, 2001 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Only one clue not seen so that alone tells you it was one of the better celeb games. Funny that the guys had the same wrong guess for the FJ! clue while 1620 would be enough for many to solve it. 1620 almost threw me off because I was sitting there thinking "there is no way this is this easy. Right?"

I don't know whose standards and practices they deal with now but obviously the winnings cap was disposed of before the five time limit was done away with. It would be hilarious if the winnings cap were in place but the 5-episode cap wasn't. For example, Ken Jennings: $2.5 million --> give $2.425 m...

Re: Pace of Gameplay in Season 1

The only thing I see that would contribute to that is that Alex was a lot chattier during gameplay than he is nowadays.

That said, the modern-day categories of needlessly long video clues is more of a time suck than Alex's occasional offhand comments in the mid-80s.
