Re: 2021 Current Events Study GUIDE. Study GUIDE.

There will be no one elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2021, as no candidate received the 75% of votes required by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. The last time this happened was in 1960. Controversial MLB players Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Curt Schilling will be on their 10...

Re: Monday, January 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I gotta say, even though I failed miserably at it, I loved the 4-LETTER BEFORE & AFTER category. A fun twist on an already fun category, I just could not wrap my head around it.

Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is me trying my best to keep myself from posting a long rant, but here I go: To expect the participants of Jeopardy! , viewers and contestants alike, to be able to come up a majority of the correct responses to the A STREAM OF TV category is a joke. There were 5 clues today about programs on 4 ...

Re: Wednesday, January 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My favorite part of the episode: The rare triple pre-call for the POLY ESTHER category: The Biblical Esther was an easy enough prediction, but gave myself a pat on the back for calling Esther Rolle as Florida Evans and Esther Williams. Also went 4/5 in ACTORS' FILMOGRAPHIES, which seems to have give...

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was a welcome WAG as my thought process was: "They're clearly looking for a motel/hotel chain with an amount in the name. Motel 6? Were rooms really that cheap back then? I got nothing better so let's try it..." To echo Mark's point, you gotta know your 7 Wonders guys. I knew he was doomed when h...

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also thought "deltoids" was going to get reversed, but asking for the plural in the clue kind of asks for that, so fair play.

5/6 on $2000 clues, am I the only one who has never heard of Smith & Wollensky? Is that a steakhouse only in certain parts of the country?

Re: Friday, January 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

People hate this kind of final because they're typical Jeopardy fans/contestants who aren't capable of anything beyond basic recall, the lowest level on Bloom's taxonomy. They want to be asked something simple that they think no one else knows, like what's the capital of American Samoa. Today's FJ ...

I kind of hate this final.

Yes, watching The Crown would help with this one, but being given only an obtuse fact about QE2's youngest child, this FJ is a pure guess for most people at best. I also just chose the President with the shortest time in office in the last 70 years.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I really don't want this to come off as rude, but shouldn't Aaron Rodgers be focused elsewhere? He wont host until after his season is over, which could be as soon as this weekend! Knowing some NFL players, he should expect to hear plenty of taunting from opposing D-lines in these playoffs. Maybe t...

it seemed the trigger guy was letting contestants get in before Ken stopped talking? Or was my mind playing tricks there? I caught this as well, brushed it off as maybe an editing thing. I noticed quite a few edits in today's show, something I don't normally pay attention to. Precalled Soupy Sales ...

In this game, I was reminded of a game earlier this season in which Marni Nixon was mentioned for the first time ever. It was a pleasant surprise to see a clue about Keith Haring, one of my favorite artists, who had been mentioned only twice before in Jeopardy history. As a young lad, I remember get...

I say boooo to the writers not demanding the correct answer be (Giannis) Antetokounmpo! The man has been the NBA's MVP for the last 2 years, he has become a pretty big name, not only in length but in stature.

Re: Friday, January 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Shoot...

I know Alex wanted to leave a final 30 second message on his last episode, and I wish he was able to do so. The montage at the end was very nice nonetheless.
