Re: Tuesday, October 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is it just me...or is this season on Jeopardy , like the rest of everything in 2020, a little off-kilter? It seems we are seeing more games than normal with players finishing the game in the red and not being around for FJ. And a lot of games with slow flow and lots of missed answers. The show is l...

It is going to be a mix of celebrities playing for charity and civilians (such as a firefighter).
One promo I saw said "first responders".
Through the audition process, it was either stated or obvious first responders/nurses/frontline workers are what they wanted.

If that is a thing, then I don't see the point. I noticed in episode 2 or so that a contestant got penalized because they answered before Jane finished reading the question, though I don't remember if they got it right or not. That's another thing they should let go.

Re: Fun with NBC's "The Weakest Link"

Does anyone know if the contestants are prohibited from just saying "Pass" on questions they don't know the answer to? I find it maddening how much time contestants take up on questions they have no hope of getting right. I think I’ve seen them say it, but I can’t guarantee it. Even if they are ban...

Re: Tom Kennedy dies at 93

So...I ventured over to Wikipedia and my memory was partially correct. In the 1970s version (the one I watched), a champion had a set of 5 keys to choose from, and there were 5 cars on stage. If the key the champion selected did not start the car that was chosen, the car was put out of play and the...

Alex was exactly the kind of contestant I enjoy having on there. But Alex, DON'T bet it all that late in the game. Leave yourself $100 so you can be around for FJ! Ran NASCAR somehow. But mostly because most of the questions weren't really about NASCAR. An old friend of mine wrote the song "Boss of...

Re: 2020 Current Events Study Guide

Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass by singer Lana Del Rey is on the NY Times best-seller list.

While this book will probably not be significant in the world of books, it does give writers another way to ask about her and her songs.

I'm pretty sure they're not sending Alex anywhere, especially not somewhere with less restrictive rules.
which would be one of two reasons I said this would be unlikely
