Re: Monday, January 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My wife correctly identified Algeria as being largest, but I was fixated on Israel as being the smallest and couldn’t think of a smaller country on the N coast. Bah!

Re: Friday, January 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I HATE THE TIEBREAKER Amen. I can't imagine that the reason for it is simply $$, as it can't possibly make that much of a dent in the J! budget if they have to give out two first prizes once per season or so. Doesn't strike me as more emotionally satisfying this way either. I would just hate-hate-h...

Re: Reretaken Down

Anyone else think that--assuming as executive producer he has significant say in who the next host will be--Mike Richards might pull a Dick Cheney and choose Mike Richards? As for Ms. Couric's remarks (which I have only seen referenced in the usual alarmist conservative news headlines), some enormo...

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

I do have an issue with the diamond = crystal clue, but need to do some digging. The finished gemstones certainly are single crystal bodies, but they are cut on cleavage planes and I doubt if many/any are as grown (naturally or otherwise) crystals. A fractured stone doesn't exactly meet my definiti...

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I combined the names from both companies and said Motel 6. 🥴 ITYM Super 6 or Motel 8? Both my non-trivia wife and I got this one pretty much instantly. I wasn’t a fan of Brian’s answer, mainly because it doesn’t seem as much funny as it does mean. Smilies don’t change that for me, but maybe I’m jus...

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

I’m another who found this FJ annoying. It asks of the player, in 30 sec, to recall which of her kids is the youngest, to then recall their age or birth year and then finally to place that year n the correct administration. That lady task should be easy for anyone who passes the test, but the first ...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Chris Harrison did do The Bachelor and Millionare at the same time. Well, doing two shows at the same time is a lot easier on an android than it is a human being... (Seriously don't get the appeal for Chris Harrison at all. I've seen mannequins with more personality.) Chris Harrison had a special g...

Re: Tuesday, January 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My son made the precall for FJ: “Dad, what was the name of the first dog in space?” (Id been thinking of jumbo, Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Balto. Fortunately, I’d watched Lasse Halstrom’s excellent “My Life as a Dog” so I had the answer at hand.

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ken's voice is terrible. Way too high. I am surprised that they didn't work with him to bring it down. He did speed through the questions which I liked. A decent voice coach could almost certainly help him with that. One side benefit of being the son of an (amateur) opera singer: I have no problem ...

Yes, I thought that Ken did a quite creditable job of guest hosting. My wife was less convinced, comparing his performance to Vanna White filling in for Pat on Wheel. I thought that was a bit unkind, but whatevs. I’ll wait and see how his performance changes with practice. Got no farther than Viva a...

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

I went with "isomer" for Final. Turns out it's from the Greek for equal + share. I couldn't decide between the two until I made the connection with "topography." I bet the writers expected players to get it from Utopia , famously coined from the Greek for "no place". I would have thought that Greek...

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

An interesting end to the Trebek era. I agree that the wording of FJ left much to be desired. I started with isomer but knew the -mer didn’t mean place so thought if other iso- terms. I got to isotope before Think music had ended but would I have had time to finish writing it? The tribute to Alex at...

Re: Always knew this day would come, but....

I started watching Jeopardy! during the Art Fleming era, either the first or second season. It was a breath of fresh air on daytime TV on those days when I was out of school and helped nurture my love of learning. When Alex started, I was in grad school and didn’t own a TV and I lost track of the sh...

Re: Thursday, January 7, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

After having last nights episode pre-empted by scenes of sedition, it was good to get back to the calm presence of Alex. It’s still so hard for me to fathom that mere days after this episode taped he was dead. Yes, there are a few signs of ill health visible, but I am in awe of his ability to projec...

Wow, tough boards for the players tonight. As Mark B predicted, I did answer “fashion” to the LVMH clue (Möet Hennessey seemed unlikely to award something for a collection). FJ wasn’t quite an Instaget but close. King executed in 1649? Gotta be Chuck I. Charles == Carolus (L.) from Karl (German) and...

Brayden got a stiff challenge from David but won with superior wagering and better performance in the DDs. I also precalled Don Quixote as I couldn’t think of another famous literary work from the 17th Century. I was surprised when none of the three came up with the right work, let alone the correct...
