And racing like CInderella to get this one done before my Netflix expires at midnight, we have the Season 5 premiere, September 5, 1988, Molly Herrington vs. Vernon Jones vs. Dave Prechtl

http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6430

I thought we might have a theme board after the first 4 categories, but no, TRACK & FIELD doesn't start with "THE". Dave, however, starts with TRACK & FIELD and racks up 5 right in a row for the audience applause and $1500.

Do check out THE BIBLE for $200 (J!). Some cheeky clue writing from the folks who brought you "its poop was beaten gold".

The "Revelation" vs. "Revelations" question had not yet been settled by the start of season 5. Vernon sneaks an "s" past the judges, but not past his daddy I suspect.

Have we heard Trebek's Meryl Streep impression previously? THE MOVIES for $400 gave him the chance, and he took it.

COMMON BONDS for $400 (J!) is off-model. There's a definition, a clue, and an example. Fun fact about the run in the stocking though.

Dave mistakes Austrian for Australian at the top of WORLD CAPITALS in DJ! Then Canberra shows up further down the column. I wonder if they had to rewrite that clue. It's a pretty tough one, that appears only one other time in the Archive.
Canberra is located in the Australian Capital Territory completely surrounded by this state

What is New South Wales?
That went onto a flashcard.

The correct response for ARCHITECTURE for $400 (DJ!) would also be a correct response exactly 14 years later (Ask me how I know.):
1988: Floral name for the circular-shaped stained glass windows found in churches
2002: A large circular one made of stained glass sits above the west facade of Reims Cathedral (STARTS WITH "R" for $2000)
If I had won on the buzzer on that clue, I just might have played a solo Final Jeopardy. I just might have not beaten the single-day record also, so we'll let Mary Sue have her $2000. I'd tell you to check it out on YouTube, but Sony threw up a copyright strike on that segment of my episode, and only that segment. Ok.

The 1988 reference to Ross Perot in FAMOUS AMERICANS is not his earliest mention in the Archive! Doug Molitor recognized his name a year earlier in a MIDDLE NAMES category, as the country's (then) second-richest man. It feels like Doug's games come up a lot on my searches. I wonder why that is?

For clue of the game, how about FROM THE FRENCH for $1000, a word that shows up a number of times in the Archive.
From early French for "chain", it's a chic knot of hair worn at the nape of the neck

What is a chignon?
If you've got Netflix, this is a good one to watch. As for me, I've got to figure out which game is was that I started on last week, so I can get to it. There are more games outside of my current checklist tempting me to enter them. Good night all.

It was, which is also the top game on my list of bookmarks. Good to know, and thanks.

I added the Marvin Shinkman #2: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6435

POTPOURRI $500: It occurred September 27, 1927, in Yankee Stadium during the 8th inning

Marvin got while I would not take any bets on the players from this week's 10/3 game getting it.

I would have guessed Babe Ruth calling his home run.

When I watched this episode, I thought it was funny that Greg's interview involving his impression of Don Pardo's bit from "I Lost on Jeopardy" (which had to get cut off because of the brand names mentioned) presaged his flame-out in the game.

Looks like the $200 clue for BEGINS & ENDS WITH "A" has got your goat.

(And 1 more guess of "called shot" here.)

Folks, those of you who are archiving Marvin Shinkman's run, Day 2 of Marvin Shinkman's should be changed to #447 or May 27, 1986 and Day 5 of his run should be May 30, 1986 or show #450 and Day 4 of his run should also be changed to May 29, 1986 or show #449(which has been in the trading circuit for more than a decade by now).

The changes for the dates are done and I've begun Shinkman #5 which I hope to finish before church (it's still Saturday for me) tomorrow morning.

Marvin Shinkman #5 is done: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6436

Alex mentioned that researcher Carlo Panno prepared all of the material for the game. I did not know if that kind of thing gets a special line for the game or not.

Alex erred on math when he said the players picked up 7300 in the first round, as the total was 7500.

Myron likes new things in the Archive and TV $1000 fits the bill.

DD2 was called a Video Daily Double though not with anything added to the Daily Double graphic. Font fans would like seeing the clue in the style of that typeface.

I filled in 3/4/02: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=1449

The mercifully few links should work.

Kevin (3x $44,001) found DD3 at clue 30 with the scores:
Susan: 18800
Kevin: 8400
Omid: 2600

The wager turned out not to matter since the FJ! clue was a triple solve.

2900? Booo!

I would like to think that FJ! clue if played in October 2019 would break the streak of no FJ! clues 3/3 sweep.

Susan played a strong game and I can imagine the posts that would have pegged her for more success. Nope, you never know when you're going to run into a ToCer.

jlgarfield: Relying on your intel I did give Gaye Kapkin a line on her bio page.

She didn't make it to the car. She had won $6,470 over those four games.
