Re: Thursday, October 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

+1 Type A (but wait, "type" is in the clue, what am I missing?) Well, of course they avoided my wheelhouse category like the PLAY-gue :cry: +1 Gin???

Re: Glenn Kagan Sues Sony For Age Discrimination

What happened to Glenn Kagan further proves why my parents want me to go into the public sector (working in the government as a civilian worker) rather than working in the private sector. Say what you want about our government but the government cannot and will not fire anybody for something like w...

Re: 2021 College Championship...in teams

Fascinating. Presumably, they will be bringing in contestants from all over the country, so maybe they will reopen casting soon for the regular season Or maybe they would force a two week quarantine during a college break? or maybe it will be filmed away from California where there are less restric...

Re: 2021 College Championship...in teams

I thought Michael Richards said the show wasn't broken...I thought Alex Trebek didn't like the All-Stars format, I hope they don't use the All-Stars format again, but how else could J! be a team competition?

Yeah, to pin a country name question, I've seen questions that specify the UN name.

Re: Monday, September 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got UK, but I thought it was kind of arbitrary that one is supposed to know that specifically UK instead of GB appears on that specific map for a FJ. I imagine UK is used instead of GB generally, but to hinge a FJ on that fact I think is a bit unfair.

I thought of Picasso but dismissed him because of his association with Paris. I know he was born in Spain and proudly associated with Spain, but I didn't think he would be grouped with other Spanish artists. https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2015/feb/20/pablo-picasso-spanish-french-art-painte...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Part 1 was the 50-question test, which I described on page 7. That was a one-on-one Zoom call; responses were spoken aloud. I've done this step more recently (August), and it was different -- it was essentially the same as the initial online contestant test, but with about 8-10 potential contestant...

I would have answered Barry, I forgot his name is Berry.

The wide shot of the three contestants looks terrible. I hope they put the podiums back together when the protocols are lifted. I can't read all the scores without twisting my neck during the wide shot.

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

So since they're only picking Californians for now, I imagine that however long a wait exists for us out-of-staters in the pool will not count against the 18 months either? I am in the same boat (pun intended) as you. I imagine they will deplete the out of town pool eventually, probably not at the ...

Started with Parthenon, then, wait, no no no, the other one. Pantheon.
I almost always say Parthenon, even though I have been inside the Pantheon (in Rome). I was spoiled on FJ, so I don't know if I would have corrected myself.

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

First week of contestants have been posted, all from California. For the sake of argument let's say that all three contestants left their homes on taping morning and did not stay somewhere closer to Culver City. I don't know studio reporting time, but let's call it 7:70 a.m. What time do you wake u...

He'll return to Jeopardy! later in the new season when it's safe to travel.

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

Ken is 46. Alex was 44 when he hosted his first episode. I agree about having someone commit long term. I thought TPIR bringing Drew Carey on was an odd choice, but he has been there 13 years now. The role of a game show host is a pretty darn good gig. You are paid well, you can tape a bunch of sho...
