The players were correct to leave the TV for last. +2400 for many of us at the 4th podium.

Nice tribute to Prince with the category and the category itself with a purple background. Too bad the players could not figure out what to do with the car clue in it.

The FJ! clue had me struggling with what little Latin I could recognize. I tried a brainstorm of -ologies and thought about matching Michelle with the simple biology. I only got as far as Avibus leading me to think animal and wrote zoology. Nice solve and opening pay day by Mirza.

I like that Jeopardy has categories like the TV category that is easy money for us older folks. But the flip side is feeling even older. My first lunch box had the Beverly Hillbillies! Seinfeld had to be picked up on a rebound? And Carroll O'Connor is a stand and stare? Plus, it was enough to get Alex to bring out the old chestnut of "you're too young ..." Sigh.

Anyone want to set an o/u on the number of Prince fans who will get Upset Online that the show accepted "Party Like It's 1999" because they don't know the show's rules?

Based on the clue, I was expecting something outdated, so I went with... Phrenology.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I was afraid we'd run out of time before we got to my free $3000, err, the TV category. OK, no one got Al Michaels, no football fans, fine. But Carroll O'Connor and Beverly Hillbillies, TSes?

Purple? Was that nerves/'strange things happen under the lights', or did that guy really go through life thinking it was just named Purple?

Hmm, 'The art of...Latin with Latin? Avi-...bird? Ornithology sounds good. Thanks for not giving us the title in english, Alex. That's 10 seconds of Googling I'll never get back.

Is this still a thing? I don't follow stuff on social media. I mean, if they can learn proper wagering, like you think they can, surely they can learn the rules and not overreact to nonsense?


OK maybe not.

Is it just me or did Alex not give the answer to the "this metal"/"silver nitrate" question?? He just corrected him never gave the real response.

He did not.

For FJ, I just wagged meteorology. I had nothing.

For some reason, my DVR didn't record today's show. Schedule shows no pre-emption, either.

Didn't recognize a thing in Asian Food. HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS?!

Also can't say I've heard of an Australian Shepherd.

Wasser -> vaseline was too opaque for me, and I just used Vaseline earlier today.

Lach Trash: The Beverly Hillbillies, Lake Pontchartrain. Also got the Banana Republic DD.

Saw no TOM whatsoever in this FJ!

Am I being pedantic when I say that Mirza Gluhic clearly saying "Man of War" is an incorrect answer for the jellyfish that is the Portuguese Man O' War?

Dictionaries also give man-of-war as a correct usage.

I talked myself out of the bird connection and into meteorology. :roll:

Just because the show has a rule/precedent on accepting this as correct doesn't make it right. Titles should be exact. I know that many folks (and the J! judges) disagree with me.

In the "DISS"ING YOU category, SOMEONE WHO DIFFERS FROM ORTHODOX OPINION. They accepted "dissenter." I assume they were also prepared to accept "dissident."

On Michelle's DD I wasn't sure whether the Rhone connected with Lake Lucerne or Lake Geneva or both. I leaned toward Geneva but wasn't sure. Then I noticed that the clue referred to "convention-al wisdom" and knew I was right.

I knew the avibus in FJ referred to birds, so I went with ornithology and hoped for the best.

Knew it was the science of birds.

Completely forgot what the science of birds was called.

Went with "zoology" and hoped that would be enough. (I am not giving myself credit.)
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.
