Seriously?

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

"Academy Award in 1988" was all I needed for FJ. Yeah, isn't it a thing for all J! hopeful boardies to have the Best Film/Actor/Actress, etc. mostly memorized? At least up to the turn of the century. I had to re-read the clue to make sure they were going for best actress. It was worded kind of awkw...

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

For MA I took a guess with no real knowledge. Different place, but I was linking physics, so science, "like MIT?" to risk it as I had a 16.67% chance. On that clue, I conflated Robert Goddard with Mark Goddard of Lost In Space . I happened to know that after his TV career, Mark G had been a teacher...

Re: Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Andy can wipe his brow after getting past that game with Deanna playing well. It's hard to fault her for not betting huge on DD3 as so few players would go as high as she ended up needing for a lock. Given Andy's wager, all she had to do was bet $0 on FJ. But how can you know a thing like that? And...

Re: Wednesday, November 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A ton of LT up for grabs, but shy of the 17600 needed to win from the 4th podium. Actually, the 4th podium would only need 10001 after DJ to win with a correct FJ response. Doug didn't even bet the max he could have (6699) to keep Daniella locked out, but he still would have shot down Greg on a R-W...

All puns aside, Colin would have a lot more to regret, had Jamelle gotten FJ correct and Brian responded incorrectly.

I'm hoping they will decide to allow tie games again in the near future.

If I were Lindsey, I'd be more than a little ticked off.

When the players did not solve clue 1 for "roll out the..." that kind of indicated how the game would go. Precisely what I was thinking, real time. Shortly afterwards, Carlos guesses 'Hey Jude' for Drive My Car , and the girls draw a blank. The writing was on the wall for Kristin to flame out after...

I thought it sounded like Aaron did not beat the buzzer on the first DD. Was expecting a reversal. Spring the trap door on all three contestants for not knowing Bill Murray was greens keeper Carl. I had more Lach Trash than I can remember. Including Pearl, Bill Murray, Vacuum, Elvis Costello, JFK, L...

I can't stand birthstone/anniversary gift/astrological sign/state bird clues, but here we are. I'm with you. Never had a reason to learn any of that. The good news is, it's a very limited data set. 12 birthstone flashcards and 12 zodiac flashcards, and you're off to the races. Here are some mnemoni...

Re: Friday, September 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My mind didn't quickly go to Jeff Gordon for that one, because he hasn't been in the 24 since 2015; plus Chase Elliott and William Byron have driven it regularly since, and while unlikely, the answer could've been either of them. The clue wasn’t even close to being pinned. As you said, other NASCAR...

Just the category alone was gravy for me but this is probably the easiest tournament FJ I'll ever see, as I've been a student of all things Titanic for 45 years.

Bob didn't give much (strategy) thought to his final wager. I'm puzzled that he didn't bet the extra $201 to outscore Rachael, in the event he needed a wildcard spot. Even if Rachael didn't double up, it would have been good insurance for Bob to go 2-3 dollars over the even 20 grand just because som...

That was the most delightful Celebrity Jeopardy game I ever watched.
All three could hold their own against better than average players in a normal J! game.

Re: Looks Like Jeopardy! Has Resumed Production

Not much different than how it was for the last shows this spring w/ no audience.
I wouldn't think there would be a lot involved in seperating the podiums a couple feet. Even if they had to construct completely new ones.

I'll always have fond memories of that era of Millionaire. It was never the same after he left.

That said, I couldn't stomach any of those network morning shows. Not just the ones Regis was on.
