There appears to be a missing media file for the last Season 18 game. Rather than submit 10 correction suggestions about it, I thought I'd post here. Maybe I'm getting the file extension wrong. It should be 2002-01-07_J_04.something. It's got Sofia jumping off a rock wall, so I assumed it would be video.

Any suggestions?

I tried every trick I've used in the past and struck out. My suggestion is to email RKS.

Now at the end of the video Erick(kablamfan), the intro seen is from Season 3 and it's either a Monday, Wednesday or Friday opening sequence. It looks to me it's Jerry/Henry/Ursula.

Oh I see, I'm not sure what the airdate was when Jerry faced Henry & Ursula.

Maybe you can search the newspaper for that episode or ask Trevor Panno for the Game # of that episode.

I don't have any captures from that game. The player pictures were uploaded so GSN did air it, or at least the introductions. Without ressurrecting dead computers I might not be able to solve this mystery.

For those who have access to Hulu, you'd better hurry and capture the media files from the February 26, 2009 episode including the entire category about Alex at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation(CBC), because when the episode was originally archived, the media files for that episode had the 404 Error saying, files not found.

I have updated the wild card cutoff thread and added a list of unarchived games from older tournaments.

When I read the words "National Lampoon" in the wiki bio, I could immediately picture his style. But if you had shown me his work and asked for his name, I couldn't have told you. Funny how memory works, isn't it?

Thanks to the recent upload I was able to fill in the missing 20 clues from 9/11/87: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=4992

Going off the chats I filled in some of the missing information for the player bios although it may not be exactly as Johnny said it at the start.
I found a 2017 obituary for a Dennis Golden that has a picture that looks enough like the guy here that I think it's the same person. The obituary mentions his having been the 1974 J! Grand Champion, so those loose ends are tied up. https://fergusonfuneralhomesnj.com/book ... ituary.php
