It would be easy enough for him to comment on it on Twitter if he wanted to, but he hasn't.

New J! web site, all old file links are 404'd

The show has a new website , and one side-effect for any link-collectors is that all the file links to the old site are now broken, including links to player pictures. Or, who knows, maybe they're somehow still accessible with some URL tinkering? Here are some old player picture URLs (now dead): ht...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

If viewership goes up with better players ... everyone loves watching Maseratis. These are likely bad assumptions, and we've had this conversation on this board and its predecessors too many times to count, but the summary goes something like this: Jeopardy! is a quiz show, implying not just quiz b...

I think the reddit thread is still up.

But the reddit forum is... not my preferred place to go to discuss Jeopardy!...

How is it possible that Alex doesn't know that the Greek letter mu is pronounced "miu", not "moo" ???????????????? :o
I've heard it both ways.

All my Russian math TAs pronounced pi as "pee" and were legit mystified whenever someone would say "pie".

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As a former longtime mastiff owner and devotee of the breed, I agree that "mastiff" should not have received a BMS. To say a bullmastiff is a "type of mastiff," however true in some sense, plays fast and loose with the established names for breeds. (It's a little like arguing "dog" should have recei...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

For various reasons I've explored in the past it won't be helpful to add a checkbox for an incomplete game, at least, no more helpful than noting as much in the game comments that appear at the top of the game, which should always be done for incomplete games. In order to "fabricate" a score for an ...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

The answer to the S18 question is that when GSN re-aired that season several times over, I entered the skeletons and got all the media captures but didn't put in the clues. Unfortunately GSN also stripped out all the original fee plugs which included the mention of the consolation prizes, so only Ma...

Meanwhile... in the Green Room

I liked the time-elapse video of the entire day's green room activity that is up on the official Facebook page. Tried to figure out what movies they were watching by looking at them as they blazed by. The second one is The Princess Bride (any FJ! wagering tips from Fezzik?) and the third is one of t...

Lisa posted elsewhere that she was thrown halfway through responding because of the unconventional overlap, paused, and started again at the beginning of the overlap to make sure she got it out right. I'm sure this is true, but there is even more to it. After watching and listening a million times ...

2) A "Before & After" requires some "after," a unique suffix after the linking middle.
Wouldn't that be "-ostrophe"?

Re: Monday, January 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

once her response was accepted, I didn't expect a reversal. I don't think a reversal would have been fair since Lisa wasn't offered the opportunity to say her response again. Tell that to Allen Goodman... or the many other players who see a slight mispronunciation result in a reversal with no oppor...
