Thanks for putting the name of the 5th category in the j! round, (I honestly couldn't read it when the $500 clue was revealed. BUT I assumed it was "cooking with graham kerr" because he's the only famous chef named graham that i know of.)

One other thing, about the missing category name in the jeopardy round (on the october 26 1993 episode) (I hate to sound like a jerk and if i do I apologize), but I WOULD THINK the odds are it's a name that was used in a previously entered game,)

I have a long term goal,

I am asking for anybody who has time to put in any season 1-12 episodes that are missing.

That is literally the only thing you've ever posted about here. The archivists are limited by what they can find. If you have any of these episodes yourself, send the tapes/DVDs/betamax/potato-cam/whatever form you have it in! Episodes aren't going to just magically appear.

Stop posting things like this. We'll get to them when we have them or have time. It's not "your goal" to demand or command.

I'm goddamned sick of seeing this thread bumped and coming in hoping for a new-to-me game, just to see that it's you wanting more games archived. We all want more games archived, including the Archivists. It's not lack of time or motivation that's keeping the games from being archived.

For MOVIES $300 I did not add any kind of note. Is that quote correct? Does Scheider say it several times? The same way each time or different ways? I took a quick look on YT and found the line said differently.

If a fan of the movie has a strong need for some kind of ERRATUM then let me know and I can add something.
I'm going off memory here, but that line as typed doesn't even ring a bell. He says the iconic two words several times, but I know there's at least two variants it's involved in.
Thanks. I'll monitor the correction suggestions that come in as well. For now I'll leave the clue as is.

I added what I had of 7/12/89: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6090

With introductions missing for this game I went with Hart over Harte for Maureen’s last name when Alex said it. For Gil I heard something in the neighborhood of Honnaker, Honager, Honneger etc. with too many possibilities to take a guess.

Finding even this portion of a 1989 seniors game was a surprise, since that is the one tourney I thought I had none of on tape. With other tournaments I expect a lot more complete games and incomplete ones the rarity. [Fingers crossed]

I've never actually heard the word good used as a grade for meat. I thought the next one down from prime and choice was select.

This is certainly true now, after some digging I found that good was changed to select in November 1987, which would make it surprising that Jeopardy! was asking for Good roughly a year and a half later. It's possible the change was announced in 1987 but not enacted for consumers until some later date, I suppose.

This is how we get some more old games:

Image

Amy asked to borrow a VCR and Howard hooked it up to make sure it still works. Bernadette asked, "What's on the tape?"

After what is shown on the CC, Howard says, "but if I push play and you see some naked people..."
Bernadette: Got it. What is porn? [Laughter]
Howard: Ooh, we were looking for vintage '80s erotica, but I'll accept it.
