Looks like J! has been preempted in the Detroit area for the State of the City address. I am not pleased.

Edit: Looks like it has not been completely preempted.

I would not be surprised if this FJ gets a 100% or extremely close to it in the weekly poll.

Armenians often have last names ending in -ian or -yan.

Did not read the second question about the families until I already answered the poll. Count me as never having heard of the families.

Re: Tuesday, January 24, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm going to say that the FJ will be one of the lowest scoring FJ's of the year, and that a large majority of JBoarders went with Sicily. A truly terrible clue.

They just advertised the test saying registration is still open. What an epic fail (pardon the internet lingo) this has been.

Anyone else from the Detroit area watch this? If so, was it just me, or was the edit terrible? Think music lasted all of two seconds, no contestant interviews, if a question went unanswered they edited out the stand and stare and went immediately to Alex giving the correct response.

Re: Official Jeopardy! Board is back online

If there had been an infraction system like that before, we all would have been suspended (no contestant bashing, no writer bashing, no producer bashing, no insulting other posters, no harsh language . . . hell, we all do that when we're being nice !). Rex By those rules, the first thread on the ne...

Re: Thursday, December 1, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Knew FJ cold, but shocked that the middle player was ruled incorrect (he had the correct title, was it that they found "worry" incomprehensible?) One of my greatest J! fears is that Alex/judges won't be able to read my FJ answer should I ever appear on the show. My handwriting is so terrible I once...

Impressive performance by the champ. I wouldn't be surprised to see her in the TOC.

On a side note, must we have another celebrity marriage category so close to last one?

I agree with this, especially in a TOC Final. I would not shed a single tear if they retire Celebrity Marriages type categories.

Re: Monday, October 31, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

I said Communists for FJ but I wasn't that confident about it. I hesitated between that and Marxists. I thought of communists, Marxists, socialists, and Fabians. Without any more context, there was no way to rule any of them out. This was an absolutely terrible clue, IMHO. The only way to know what...

Re: Friday, October 28, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

That was certainly not the most exciting Jeopardy game ever. None of the players ever really seemed to get in rhythm.
