Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Yeah I found out about the week of 8:30 PM games on that Tuesday and recorded the last 4 of them, so when last week's games came around, my DVR picked up Monday's and skipped the latter 4 since I had already watched them.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Fascinating to see how people worked out the Vancouver one. I'd imagined there'd be more people citing Granville simply because they remember the street or the island from an actual visit to the city, but way more people got there from Lionsgate Studios and Simon Fraser University than I'd have tho...

Re: On Both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune?

So based on the multiple counterexamples in this thread alone, can we assume that #50 on this Mashable article is hogwash? Also, #49 as written is hogwash as well even though those well versed in Jeopardy mechanics understand what they were attempting to say. #48 is also false, they really sputtere...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

This is not exactly new, 99% of the things he claims to have NHO have been asked for or mentioned in previous Jeopardy! clues in episdoes he has watched. He's been told this literally one billion times, he doesn't care, keeps saying NHO. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Not even close to negbait. Which is why a contestant still said "android" anyway, right? Which letter in R.U.R. do you suppose stands for "android"? The clue didn't say R.U.R. though. Aha, fair enough; I misremembered the clue. (And anyway, I'm sure if it had been, your retort would have been that ...

With this thread on page 2 I found a reason to bump it.

Re: Tuesday, June 2, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said Karen Blixen for the question about her. The clue didn't specify it needed her pen name, did it? It didn’t, but Blixen was in the clue so I don’t know if they would’ve taken that.

Re: Couple questions about two 80s clues

Is it possible the Archive is missing a comma? " That'd be my guess, but then the correct response is shown as "single family (duplexes)". I assumed the player said single family and the Archivist added (duplexes) to complete what they presumed the response was, under the theory that either the clu...

Re: J! in the Media

Bad news: It’s been announced that Netflix is removing the current Netflix episodes on June 27 and there hasn’t been an announcement about new episodes being added. This could mean the end of Netflix Jeopardy!, though there hasn’t been any announcement about Hulu episodes. The more I think about th...

Re: Drawing a line through FJ response

So here's my question, is there a way to re-institute a crossed out response? Say a clue asks about a 1995 Hugh Grant film, I spend 20 second writing out "What is the englishman who went up a hill but came down a mountain?", then realize oh wait they want Four Weddings and a Funderal so I cross out ...

You're the one over-emphasizing the word "national". Again, this is suggesting that literally everything "national" absolutely positively HAS to be in DC.

Good luck, everyone! I've been looking forward to the new season. I'm still a little miffed about the Ducks One-Day last week. Although I finished in 34th place, I should have been third. I was counted wrong on one of the questions that I actually got right. I did send a message to Thorsten, but he...
