Re: What’s up with j-archive?

I think the first post is a joke ("Season 37 or 38") but I get it. The truth is I am too busy doing a major rewrite of the back-end (and family + job) to put in those games. Also, my recording methodology completely fell apart and I have no way to record the games (although I am working on getting ...

Re: Friday, September 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ: WECIB? Jefferson is on the $2 but that only started in the 70’s, right? I’m glad to see Jason continue his streak. I liked James when he was on but that promo for the ToC isn’t making me look forward to the ToC. Uhhh why? It's just a commercial, lol. James brought in the ratings, it makes sense...

Re: 2019 ToC Predictions & Comments

Surprised this hasn't had any activity, especially given the new season. But nonetheless, I made my own tier list: Diamond: James Holzhauer, Josh Hill, Emma Boettcher Platinum: Eric R. Backes, Steven Grade, Francois Barcomb Gold: Lindsey Shultz, Anneke Garcia, Kyle Jones Silver: Rob Worman, Alan Dun...

With his 9th win and $233,243, Jason vaults from 46th to 34th place on the all-time leaderboard.

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Well anyway, with the controversy dying down I'm gonna go ahead and make my tiers. No particular order. Gold: James Holzhauer, Josh Hill, Lindsey Shultz, Emma Boettcher, Eric R. Backes SIlver: Kyle Jones, Anneke Garcia, Rob Worman, Ryan Fenster, Francois Barcomb Bronze: Rachel Lindgren, Dhruv Gaur, ...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Well now that tonight's result is in the books, I can answer a question people have been asking, but will spoiler tag it nonetheless. I'm the alternate for this year's TOC. If I don't get on this time, I'll be brought back when they run the tournament the next time. Honestly, I'd say it's a pretty ...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

Perhaps after the ToC and James wins it all or at least is a semi-finalist or finalist, they can do the 3-week UToC. Or another idea I have in mind for Season 36 instead of the UToC is a second iteration of the Million Dollar Masters Tournament being held at DAR Constitution Hall in May just before...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Well I've been wondering about this for a while. I guess I'll start with my hot take: The producers made a solid decision with putting Emma in and I'm thrilled about it, and I don't really think most of the 4-time winners who she leapfrogged over were really screwed. They weren't going to qualify fo...

Re: TOC Players Who Have Died

Would Cindy Stowell or Larry Martin count on this thread as well? They technically would have qualified for their respective tournaments had they outlived the TOC cutoff period. I know it's an old thread, but I'm also curious as to whom we've lost among the greatest in the show's history.

My pitch for the final megatournament; also posted via Reddit

My idea as follows: This is the final megatournament of the Trebek era before he resigns/potentially declines in health. Ken, Brad, and James get byes into the semifinal round. Each playing separately. The show picks off the next 90 biggest winners in the Trebek era from David Madden to Bob Harris, ...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Brad's team looks like a Halloween-themed quiz show. Yeesh. I'm ALL for Austin's glorious meme team. Ken has a pretty monstrous line-up there. Colby and Julia's teams are very well-balanced. Buzzy really lucked out with Alex Jacob there, they'll put up a very formidable match. My heart says Team Aus...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I'm with the several like minds on here and Reddit that this is certainly a confusing format. 6 teams, 10 games? I've been trying to make sense of it ever since I first heard about the tournament and I just can't. As for the contestant selection, very excited to see a lot of my favorites returning....
