Even those who engage with past material on a daily basis had to have the benefit of the Archive search to suss out the recycled clues.
I think Andy is right that any producer in Davies' shoes would be doing the same thing, trying to make the show go on as best it could under trying circumstances.
The writers deserve everything they are asking for and I hope the AMPTP comes to its senses, goes off-playbook, and starts to understand the writers' perspective. In the meantime, there are also families relying on the paychecks of non-writer Jeopardy! employees, and keeping the show going even under trying circumstances makes the most sense. It's not going to do the writers any favors to have a hobbled show, or no show, to return to.
The fact that he came up with former players being the solution was weird give you that. with the amount of jumble in all of this I am wondering if there is going to be time for a regular game which would mean the tournaments dry up. I mean after they do this 'players from before my influence' Championship they going to have to pull off 3 others. (I am almost wondering if they could just do half games with one round considering the numbers pointed out)
it sounds like we are going to have season 40a and season 40b or would it be called season 37b. basically a season within a season. it is nothing annoying watching such a thing but I am not sure how we are going to label it on this archive.
I will say to the producer if he is reading any of this (since he does say he occasionally looks at their social stuff) that do not even take your point yourself for not being able to continue your season (in particular choosing went to do tournament champions) because of the strike that is something that is actually not your fault.
