Re: New old games in the J! Archive

^ The swan song for both the original 1984 theme music used since day 1, and Dick Schneider's last show as director (passing the director's baton to Kevin McCarthy, who'd serve for 25 years).

Believe it or not, I actually recorded this ep when it first aired. XD That "HMS Budweiser" moment makes me laugh.

Re: Friday, December 3, 1993 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

By this season of Jeopardy, I had been watching every episode either live, or by VCR for at least five years. I can't recall noticing how sensitive the player's mics were. Picking up nervous breathing from both Tom and Leslie through the whole episode. Maybe there was a newbie sound man at the cont...

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 1984 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Jeopardy!s social networking sites says what happened on show #2 would require a tie-breaker clue today. This brings me to this: What do you award the person who wins the tie-breaker clue on a triple-zero game? $5000? $2000? $1000?

Pace of Gameplay in Season 1

Hi, all. We've seen the first two eps of the Trebek run now, and looking at it and the whole first season, I think about why there were so many unrevealed clues (and sometimes, even unrevealed CATEGORIES!) in many season 1 eps. Could it have been because the ring-in rules were more loosey-goosey the...

Hey, guys. I'd love to see either a video game or post from Jeopardy's social networking sites that explore the show's past seasons, whether it be through moments or clues. What should it be called?
