Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I only got 50% of that LL Mid-Season Classic question about memoirs. Results are now up, so we can talk about it. Never heard of Educated but I just added...

Re: Thursday, March 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What did you think of ALL BETS ARE OFF? I liked the extra think step required, but overall I thought the clues were kind of lame. I couldn't figure out how the Breaking Bad clue fit the theme until the episode ended and I remembered "Bet"ter call Saul Alpha (not alphabet) Veronica (not Betty) Breaki...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

What's one current events / pop culture question you predict will appear on this year's online tests? I'm putting my money on Becoming by Michelle Obama for books and either Barry or The Kominsky Method for TV they just had becoming on the show, so i have my doubts. True, but you do see material fr...

Re: TD 414 - The Academy Awards - Q9 & Bonus Revealed!

9. OH, THE DRAMA! (14) My favorite episode of the FX series, Feud: Bette and Joan , recreated one of the most outrageous moments in Oscar history. Joan Crawford raged when rival Bette Davis got a Best Actress nod for the psychological horror/thriller in which they co-starred. Slighted yet hell bent...

CIA Factbook - I would have responded “HIV” instead of “AIDS”. I get that people conflate HIV/AIDS, but it was still jarring to hear Elaine say “What is AIDS?” and then Alex say “AIDS is right!” -when in actual fact(book) the 7.2 million (!!!) HIV-infected people living in South Africa don’t all hav...

Alex Trebek went back to production earlier today.
No, he returned to production on Tuesday.
The Jeopardy! website currently shows tickets available for Saturday Mar 30th AM/PM. Would they really tape on a Saturday, or is that a mistake?
