Re: TD 454 - Child's Play [Final results]

Thanks for the TD. I certainly sucked.

Re: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ right away. I once spent the night in Cher's hometown of El Centro. A hellhole among hellholes. I knew Cher had won the Oscar for 1988 for Moonstruck. The California bit was merely icing on the cake and the clue about the song served as further confirmation. California would have been most ...

Re: Tuesday, November 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That is what I call the innominate situation. Matt and Jennifer were taking turns answering toward the end of Double Jeopardy. What needed to happen was for one of them to get over 50% of the leader. By that failing to happen, they were both eliminated. In the end, it wouldn't have mattered, because...

Re: TD 454 - Child's Play [Q1-Q8 revealed]

I think the people who play TD are not spring chickens. I've got to stop going for old stuff like Judge Wapner and Mr Carlson. All these old things have gotten me in the Sheep basket basement.

There is no Dade County any more. It's Miami-Dade.
I know. I typed it that way to see who would upbraid me.

Re: Monday, November 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Clark County was a triple stumper in the first game of 2020. Those contestants weren't even trying. I knew Clark County when I was 8 years old. By the time I was twelve, I knew the name of the county corresponding to the principal cities in the US. These names come up all the time on Jeopardy. It's...

I once met Gary DeCarlo, the writer of na na hey hey kiss him goodbye. I said that someday I'd like to sing that at an execution. He had never heard that before and laughed out loud. I am totally embarrassed to admit that I brain froze on Final. I knew it was an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, but I wa...

Re: Friday, November 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did John briefly have a run away before he bungled the 3rd Daily Double? I was just watching for something to happen. Either for John to turn it into a run away for good or for the third contestant to suddenly mess things up for the champ.

Re: What ought to happen next?

I hope they increase the prize money. I read somewhere online that Alex was making more than the contestants every show but I don’t know the details or if that’s even true. It's been reported that Alex was making 10 million a year. If that's true, that's about $45,000 per episode. So unless the con...

Re: What ought to happen next?

Jeopardy does not exist as a hagiography of Alex. Jeopardy is a business. They will have to make a business decision as to who will best front for their company. When Bob Barker retired after 36 years on The Price is Right, the producers did not have unending weeks of auditions for various replaceme...

Instagot mammogram and shocked at the Winnipeg TS. Although in my area code TD, when asked to name a city in Manitoba, many chose to drop it, and others admitted Winnipeg was the only city they knew in Manitoba. Sure, it's good to know the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador. But what's the largest...

Re: OBIT: Alex Trebek

Alex Trebek made his U.S game show debut with "The Wizard of Odds," which premiered on NBC on Tuesday, July 17, 1973, a day later than scheduled, due to Watergate hearings. On that momentous day of July 16, Alexander Butterworth revealed the existence of a taping system in the Oval Office. But I dig...

If the correct answer had been The Little Mermaid, did the new champ write it completely enough to be credited?

Not a Bad episode. I've noticed a lot of these the season have a sacrificial lamb who isn't competitive with the others.

I call hubris on the $5000 daily double. He seemed to expect all of the South America questions to be extremely easy. They were all extremely easy. Maybe so, but he didn't have the trivia expertise to pull off a $5,000 Daily Double. There are super Champs who have shown that they can do that. That ...
