Re: Reretaken Down

Terry Jones has died (see 2020 current events thread). He's the second member of Monty Python to die, after Graham Chapman in 1989. Can anyone think of a group whose first two deaths occurred further apart? I have one in mind, but I'm curious what boardies come up with before I post it. A few that ...

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

BuzzerBlog has been saying that the American version of The Chase should come back and it would be perfect to have Ken and Brad as two of the chasers. Having all three as Chasers on ABC would fulfill both what ABC wants and what Buzzerblog wants. Yet James was the one the show’s producers considere...

Yeah, I have always heard that TPTB don't want another contestant who would go on a long run like Jennings did in his original appearances.
Maybe I'll try consoling myself with this thought: THAT is why I've never gotten The Call. :D
Then why hasn’t my phone rung :P

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

The average casual viewer likely has NEVER (in their memory) seen him play, or Ken Jennings either for that matter. Both of them played just 10 months ago, so the average casual viewer has almost certainly seen them. You'd think, wouldn't you? But judging from social media, today's average casual v...

Personally, enough already with the special tournaments. GOAT was wonderful.

I'm still in the pool. Wish I could take the test for real. Why?

I'm able to watch ABC shows through on demand. I didn't know this until a week ago.

The only drawback was that the fast forward option was disabled which meant that commercials we...

In part 1, Alex said they started writing before he finished reading the clue. Is this really possible? Does this mean contestants have more than 30 seconds to write their answers?
