A very great idea that came to me

Hi, all. In light of the news that Pluto TV is starting up a new channel devoted to classic Bob Barker eps of The Price is Right , this had me thinking. I wish Pluto TV had a Classic Jeopardy! channel (what it would be named, I'm listening). If GSN can have a channel there, then there's room for som...

Re: OBIT: Alex Trebek

I'm saddened. But, my ethos is that of being grateful of someone having been there, so I raise a toast to Alex on an amazing life.

Here's to you, the G.O.A.T. game show host. Say hi to all the other guys (Bill Cullen, Peter Tomarken, et al.) for me.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

This ITV (UK) Jeopardy ep from 1993 has a very interesting occurrence at about 4:30 in the video, but you have to watch it straight through to see what I mean. As far as I know, this has never happened on the American version of the show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFB9vAtaODs Two things I'd v...
