Re: Monday, November 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Are contestants no longer required to phrase their Double Jeopardy responses in the form of a question? Kevin tonight answered an $800 clue and a $1200 clue without a "What is...?" framing, but wasn't penalized at all. Peculiar. It sounded clipped so that we could see all 61 clues. Judges have the ...

How do they spoilerproof this? I guess they're going to schedule 7 1-hour episodes of J!, and have "alternate programming" that's probably going to be repeats, like the World Series on FOX?
That's precisely how you spoilerproof this.

Also, I wonder if the syndicated show will be in reruns that week? It would be odd to have two tiers going at once.
Why wouldn't they? I mean, the show even airs a new episode on Christmas...

And I get that it's variable length, but what the point of starting it on a Tuesday? I can't see that it's filmed already and they know the outcome.
"The Bachelor" premieres on Monday, January 6 at 8:00.

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

Now that I realize that these aren't part of the regular series, but are more like Super Jeopardy! in that they are kind of their own little season, yeah, that really screws things up. I wonder how the show gets away with creating a spinoff that its syndication buyers don't get to have. If I were t...

Otherwise there is no excuse for the actor playing Mister Rogers going TS.
Buzzer system malfunctioned and the judges said "No harm, no foul".

1 more guess for Bernoulli. Thank for getting FJ and the results up quick.

Getting this right is a big plus for Francois. Shows he has deep knowledge.
I would venture that this is probably a dream Final Jeopardy in a ToC context for a high school physics teacher.

Druv was 18 years off for Milton Friedman.
There was a film about him this year?
didn't Friedman win the 1976 "Nobel"?

I'm surprised they spotted "How the" for the FJ.

For buzzer speed I put Dhruv on equal footing (handing?) with Emma.
Past data does not match your hypothesis.

Re: Friday, November 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

ToC minisite seems to show an image of one of our SF matchups. With Emma (W3), Dhruv (W4) and Kyle (WC2) in that image that would likely leave: James (W2) / Steven (WC1) / Rachel (WC4) Francois (W1) / Lindsey (WC3) / Gilbert (W5) Of course, nothing has been confirmed yet, but these seem like fairly...

What I expect is:
Gilbert vs. Steven vs. Lindsey
Francois vs. Emma vs. Dhruv
James vs. Kyle vs Rachel
I think it's much more likely that Emma and Lindsey's positions are switched, to be honest. I think TPTB want to have a James-Emma rematch and won't give Emma as difficult of a semifinal.

From the very beginning the Archive has been a spoiler zone that the user visits at own risk.

Impressive comeback in FJ by tonight's trio.

The FJ! clue was a fail for me all around. Speed reading the clue I started writing "Don Q" before seeing enough to put on the brakes.
