Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Quebec, New Jersey? C'mon man. Ok I had an advantage since I was born in NJ but it's not that obscure. Rutgers is in New Brunswick! This was my best game ever by Coryat. I will take no credit because we got such questions as "here's a picture of LeBron James, one of the most famous people on the pla...

Re: Reretaken Down

Yep, I blame being sleep deprived from new parenthood. I know words good... Congrats! I welcomed grandchild #5 into the world this week. One of the (many) good things about grandparenthood is that you don't lose any sleep. Thanks! Kiddo is about to turn six months. Somehow I restrained myself from ...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

As long as the host doesn’t give their political views on the show I don’t care what they say or do in real life. Ideally, I agree with that. I just don't trust people who have conducted themselves in such a divisive manner. I can't look at an Anderson Cooper or a Katie Couric or a Sean Hannity (th...

Re: Friday, January 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

You are probably right, and that is the reason I hate-hate-hate this kind of clue. I know anything (at least hypothetically) is fair game to be clue material, but.... "When was QEII's youngest child born?" Who was POTUS then? Really????? All one can do is take an educated guess, which is not the wa...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I'm not really a fan of stunt casting Jeopardy hosts. And I like Aaron Rodgers, I'm sure he'll do a good job, but that's what this feels like.

Making a big deal out of "see who's hosting next week!" goes against the ethos of making the contestants the star of the show.

Pretty damn good for a host without the usual background for a job like this. A little fast, I guess, but I'd rather clear the boards than not.

I think the middle contestant said Gays instead of Gaye.
Even though he did not say that....this offended you?

Re: Friday, January 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't get as emotional as I thought I might. I guess I got most of my sad out of the way in November. But that was a great tribute video that got me in the feels.

Alex's first clue was about rats. His last in regular play was about dogs. That's a major upgrade.

Re: 2020 in review and what's in store for 2021

I don't think it's a secret/scandalous that non-white men audition at a lower rate, and that the show would prefer diversity rather than a parade of white accountants from Manhattan.

If "a lower chance of getting on Jeopardy" is the worst discrimination I've faced in my life, I've done ok.

Re: Hosting Question

I think the ship has sailed on most public personalities staying "apolitical."

Sajak's been forthright with his right-wing views for years and that hasn't hurt his Wheel career, for what it's worth.

Re: Friday, November 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Fun FJ clue that's approachable from multiple directions, I like it.

And yes I say "calm" with an audible L. That's why pronunciation-based clues annoy me. Don't even get me started on the problems with the mary/merry/marry merger...

That had to be very difficult to do in fighting back tears.
Man I was doing ok until he said "this is Jeopardy." Crying again here.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Just auditioned in DC. A few notes. We got two tests. I thought the second was easier. My brain was pretty fried after 100 questions. Maggie wasn't there. I was disappointed. They explicitly said that the order of being called up to play means nothing. Corina stumbled over her words more than once a...

That was a fun Final. I know the alphabet but it took awhile to get to X, not sure I'd have had time to write it down if I were on TV.
