Re: Ken Jennings as a Host Poll

Just moved into a new place this week and still don't have cable set up (agh, thanks Mediacom) so haven't been able to catch many episodes, but from the three I saw last week, Ken seems to be doing a fine job and he's been my preferred pick since last year -- but agree with most others, still want t...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

That Katie Couric could apparently seek this job and still feel comfortable with her interview last week... challenging the bubble mentality may not be on Sony's dashboard and that could cost them. I highly doubt people who are quite literally stuck in an alternative reality built on lies are going...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I will renew my begging for a new host who has no connection to or interest in politics. Unfortunately for you, because of the nature of the game, I would imagine most people auditioning to host, as well as most contestants, are probably registered voters at bare minimum. I'd also be willing to bet...

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was so weird not Having Alex as the Host but i thought Ken did Fairly well. i thought he may have been reading the clue a little too quickly, but the contestants understood him and thats all that matters. This is where Ken's extensive experience moderating NAQT matches was made most clear; they ...

So it's a combination of algebra, D&D, a military fighter jet, and a song.

This leaves me with more questions than it does answers.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got who is "Lewis and Clark Clifford Odets" right away but nearly stumbled saying it. That is quite a tongue twister. Presidents and the Bible was a kind of sneaky category name because the answer had nothing to do with the president, and the clue only obliquely included a president. It was basic...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

Apparently Æ could be pronounced Ash and A-12 is a CIA aircraft nicknamed "Archangel." If X is like the Greek "chi," the name could be Cash Archangel? It's called the ash, but is pronounced like an "a". Still, Cash Archangel would make sense as an explanation, if not so much a baby name. Been wonde...

relatively easy day 2 -- but damn that wine question. (in my defense, you can't expect anyone under 21 to know anything about wine, can you?)

PARALLEL 2: this one was fairly easy US history. 4: totally blanked on this one and went with a really stupid guess in "high jump". would've been better off just leaving it blank. 6: the only reason I know Blondie is because of my history teacher sophomore year, who used to play it frequently in cla...
