Re: The 2021 Tournament of Champions Is Happening Next Month

Potentially unpopular opinion, but I think that's probably for the best. We've pretty much seen the best of the Trebek era already, and we've seen them compete in these kinds of tournaments several times at this point. I think the GOAT tournament and this last Trebek-era tournament should close the...

Re: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This in general was one of the oddest games I have seen. Just very strange. The number of triple stumpers etc. For final Jeopardy, the first one I’ve missed in a long time. Thinking what could it be. Charlemagne how does capital at Aix-la- Chapelle/Aachen. He is canonically a king of France and also...

Honestly, if you don’t know the specific name of a poem there’s no reason to buzz in. You’re not going to figure it out if you don’t know it.

...Colette's brother was a Jerome Vered victim. She said in one of her interviews that she wanted to avenge him, or restore the family honor, or some such, and so she did. Sort of off-topic, but I recently came across another Jerome Vered victim, Devon Ericson , in a Streets of San Francisco episod...

I don’t think he was rough. I think Alex was downright wrong to say that he was nowhere near. The source for most people of that name is the song Hiawatha. So conflating the two isn’t unheard of or idiotic. Nikomis minnehaha hiawatha are all decent guesses. And yes no more correct than the answer of...

To a point. Moby Dick is in public domain. If I have a book published say 1920 and I photocopy it and give it to my students (and even get reimbursed), the copyright on the 1920 edition is no longer valid, and the underlyhing material is not in copyright. Who could sue me and how would they get any ...

Re: Watching Online

Also, Robert - I'm not a lawyer. But let's say Jeopardy does take action. They have to show damages and a loss to claim in what would be a civil suit, right? Unless this is something that falls under a District Attorney's or a DOJ purview. And how have they suffered any loss if I share a regular sea...

Re: Watching Online

Also, Jeopardy has never made a policy of allowing people to view old episodes through a pay wall. If they did, then it would be a serious issue here. But they don’t. You can buy a DVD of your own episode at a very high price, but that’s a different thing I think. In general, if I wanted to see a sh...

It’s 2 PM in Los Angeles. I went onto the J archive site to look something up and I see today’s game is up there already. Is this a policy, does anyone know, of the J-archive?

They seem to be very careful about not spoiling shows.

I can't think of why E.J. picked exactly $501 for his wager. His safe martian wager was $1,799. In particular, I can't figure out why his wager ended with -01 instead of with -99.
Any ties to Arkansas, home of the 501 area code?
Yes. I think he grew up and went to high school there.

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The good thing about the Viewmaster was the rotating system. Not only that but it didn't require printing and enlargement to paper cards which were more susceptible to warping/bending, mold, water damage, sticking to each other, dirt/scratches, etc. etc. Cared for well, films on Viewmaster discs fr...

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Add a note on Viewmaster. Viewmaster is just a nice riff on the stereopticon which was a feature in homes, at least bourgeois homes, from the 1880s on. 3-D pictures have always had an appeal. The good thing about the Viewmaster was the rotating system. But in general, 3-D goes through waves of a pil...

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

E.J. needs to relax and turn down the intensity meter one notch for tomorrow. Please. He reminded me of an unfunny Adam Scott. Respectfully disagree. I really enjoy his game play. I think that he comes off a bit intense but when he relaxes the smell seems very genuine, more easily genuine perhaps s...

Cumulative Coryat after 10 games: Ken 292,000, James 290,000. (I believe #3 is Matt Jackson with 250,200.) If you counted correct answers and first buzzes today, you can update the following: Cumulative total correct answers after 9 games: Ken 301, James 292. (Ken had 40 in his game 10, so I'm pret...

Regarding reading the clue, and the light — Unless you read very very slowly, there is plenty of time to read the clue before Alex finishes reading it out loud. The light does not come on randomly.
