Re: Thursday, January 27, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said James Hoban. So did I, and immediately thought it was too obscure for Jeopardy but couldn't come up with anything better. Going into final, I thought it was a good game and refreshing for a change, but then I noted that with Pearl Buck being a triple stumper, none of the contestants on stage...

Strangely, someone posted this video on YouTube today. It concerns the $1000 football clue. https://youtu.be/saeAD3Gn18k Maybe it was VetoTheNeato. Very unlikely. The video was posted by an account that posts NFL Clips daily and has over 31,000 followers. Why does that matter? And why does "cl...

Re: Wednesday, January 26, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

and I had to make a quick switch to Quincy. I'm not sure why you would switch to a late seventies TV drama when a 40 time Jeopardy champ is playing. I can relate. I'd switch in a heartbeat for Hec Ramsey . https://www.tvguidemagazine.com/archive/suboffer/cache/1970s/1974/575b3a64c73e7ea12967ff39d75...

Re: Wednesday, January 26, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well this result wasn't telegraphed in the least with the thread started a few days back by somebody with 1 prior post regarding a Q&A with an "upcoming Jeopardy contestant" that just happened to dethrone a superchamp. I reported that to the admin not because it was a spoiler but beca...

I'm in Chicagoland, and there's a lovely forest preserve west of the city called Waterfall Glen. Imagine my shock the day I learned it was named after a county official called Seymour "Bud" Waterfall. One of my favorite questions to ask people I'd like to take down a peg is who invented t...

If there's room on the poll, I'm curious how many knew the nickname of Mozart's 41st symphony. I picked that trash up from podium 4. Whoever gets that definitely has The Right Stuff. I knew it because we used to have a CD with Mozart's 40th and 41st symphonies. The 40th is one of my favorite classi...

I declared the game over when Avinash bet 1000 on DD instead of going TDD. The pictures don't show up, but I didn't need a picture of Norman Lear to know who we had to be referring to with "the '70s" and "produced hundreds of hours of beloved TV comedy". Couldn't it have been Gar...

Re: Wednesday, January 19, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

No one has mentioned that the paper chase also became a TV series that ran for several seasons. I didn't even bother with the think music. I pushed the skip button on my remote before Ken was finished reading the clue. Amy underperforms at Final Jeopardy. I don't think she's going to last long in th...

Re: Tuesday, January 18, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't want to run afoul of any of the rules of the group. I have a strong personality and tend to say what I feel. Saying someone isn't worthy of being a Jeopardy contestant is hardly rude or uncivil. It's been noted about hundreds of contestants over the years. My argument is that something has g...

, but that's a lot of bucks to see evaporate after working so hard over two rounds to amass big totals. That's her own greed. She could have stood pat on $35,000. The game was not up for grabs in Final Jeopardy. Those two Challengers clearly did not belong on stage. Something has gone screwy with c...

The mailbox was attached to the house, just to the right of the front door. First house I lived in had that type. All others have been the roadside-type. You can look up an address on the USPS website and find out whether it has rural or City Delivery. If the carrier route number starts with c, the...

Re: Tuesday, January 11, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Jeopardy is broken. It isn't supposed to be one super champ after another. Jeopardy hasn't changed. How do you think it should be "fixed" if it's "broken"? Something has changed. It could be the contestant screening is off because of the pandemic. It could be the writing is off ...

Allly thought she could, she thought she could, she thought she could, but no, she couldn't. On the Jeopardy round Daily Double she didn't make the bet she needed to make and by Double Jeopardy she made the bet she needed to but it just wasn't there. Succeeding on that bet would have made Amy the un...

Melissa? :shock: Melissa? :roll: Ethel Merman played a character named Melissa? Melissa wasn't even a name when Ethel Merman was active on Broadway. Or if it was, it was the name of a little girl born at least fifty years after Ethel. I had that clue solved before the think music started. I came up ...
