THE HUMAN BODY category was a strangely valued IMO. Getting "plexus" should have been worth muuuch more than just $400, probably down two spots.
Not when spotted 'solar'. Without solar, I'd say that's bottom row.

Played off the archive because the trial is preempting most stations. The stalagtite vs. stalactite ruling seemed weird to me because I would think the pronunciation differences subtle, but I'll reserve further judgment until I see the game. I didn't hear it the first time around and found the sequ...

Movies: Joker, Penguin, Poison Ivy (no Egghead or Scarecrow)
Unsure if this means you didn't watch the Nolan Trilogy or didn't realize Cillian Murphy was Scarecrow in the first two?
(He also appears in Rises, but only as Crane.)

I'd say movies were more important, in those were my first introduction with Joker, Penguin, Scarecrow and Poison Ivy. (Later, watching the animated shows cemented them)

I am tempted to call "BS" on "Chapters in non-fiction books" $800.

I think he will do fine as a Jeopardy host, personally. I cannot -wait- for the Defector takes ...

I usually do really well on Batman Villain categories. I played some of the Batman games (Arkham Asylum/Arkham City) and they were very good. They also introduce you to all the villains as bosses so you learn them very easily. Egghead wasn't in those games and Adelie didn't come up. Missed the peng...

Well, you can't dispute it based on the length criterion, but I'd be curious what people think about the 'most filmed' part. There's enough Hamlets that MST3K even spoofed one.
