Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

It just occurred to me today that the player you want answering final Jeopardy might not be the player you want making the strategic/wagering decision. It made me wonder if the players are separated/sequestered from their own teammates between rounds. My guess would be that this is likely the case. ...

Re: Tuesday, January 17, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wasn't sure if there is a central request repository for these kinds of things, but would anyone happen to have a digital copy of this episode? I don't have a recording on hand, can probably chase it down from a couple of acquiantances but thought I'd seek the internet's help first. thanks! So, whi...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

The other thing to think about for Team Brad is whether you want Brad to face Alex Jacob directly. Like do you want him to "fend" Alex off, or is putting him up against Alex potentially "wasting" Brad's talent? In the first match...I'd opt for the latter. My assumption would be that neither team ne...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I’m in the audience for some of the Play it Forward games this week, sitting with Lee Ann Roberts and Jeff Richmond. I have no idea if we were ever on camera, but I’ll be watching for me! It’s been over six months so I have very few memories of any of the players or questions I saw but maybe I’ll re...

Re: $100,000 Pyramid casting call

I’ve never fully understood the rules for the winner’s circle on pyramid. This player was trying to get Rita Moreno to say “things you dunk”, so she said “a biscuit”, “a dry biscuit”. Could she have said “a cookie in a glass of milk”? It’s funny how the regular rounds are a free-for-all but when yo...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

We already had a clue in the archive where "Ichiro" by itself was considered correct for the baseball player, but now we have one were the player says "Ichiro" and Alex adds "Suzuki". There's also one in the archive where the player says "Suzuki" and Alex adds "Ichiro", so we have a rare example of...

Eric had a couple of tough negs and pulled out a tough FJ final. That Napoleon quote was a tough one. For FJ, I don't like the reference to any particular border city being in the news. What was in the news was the ignorance, cruelty and racism of the present administration across all the border ci...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I understand if all you want to do is take the test and have no desire to be on the show, but if you want to be on, then why not? I've gone to many auditions, have been on two shows, and every time, they take/want your picture to go with the application. Saying no to putting up a picture is a sure ...

Lots of good Midwest options: Milwaukee/Chicago/Nashville/Columbus, generally we've been lucky to get more than one of those for most recent tests.

Another missed opportunity..."What's up, Doc?" is a question in itself No no no no no. Jeopardy contestants are expressly instructed that if the correct answer to something is "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" the correct response is "What is Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf." I wish I could find it, ...

Re: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How in the world was there no reversal on "perfect squares"? That was every bit as legitimate a response as "square roots." I think Rob has a rock-solid case for being invited back, particularly since the next clue chosen was DD3. It sounded to me like there was a tape stoppage at that point. My gu...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

My DVR didn't pick up the show this morning, no idea if it was mislabeled as a rerun or the local station preempted for something. If Mark or anyone felt like throwing up an upload and it wasn't a lot of trouble, would be appreciated. Or if there's a reddit guy for WWTBAM I'd appreciate a link.

Re: Monday, February 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's simple enough to say Bif very likely could have won the game if he bets it all on the DD. No guarantees everything plays out the same but no obvious reason to think it would play out differently. It's just surprising, he seemed to understand the spot he was in on the first DD, the scores at the...
