I really Like the Password Reboot. it kinda combines all the different versions except the Regis one, but mainly the the Original from the 50s and 60s. there is probably too much Jimmy Fallon and im not sure about the Redemption round but i really enjoyed it. Im socked of how good of a host Keke Palmer is and they did a Great Tribute to Betty White.

The new Password seemed frenetic to me and my wife.
Just trying too hard. I don't expect the hushed tones of Bill Cullen or Allen Ludden from when I watched when I was home from school. But they seem to be over the top, especially Jimmy Fallon, who seems to be working as hard as he can to make the show work.
Have to say, from the bit I watched, the contestants were very good at the game. I'm happy for the contestants, if they were enjoying it as much as it seemed they were.

Topps just emailed me letting me know my random Home Run Challenge guess (from two months ago that I forgot about the day after) ended up being right

So I'm getting a fancy Adolis Garcia baseball card mailed to me in the future. (Not the FANCY one, cause it wasn't a 425 ft HR, nor did I guess it to be one, but still.)

Edit: Apparently there's a color parallel -per month- on these things. And people redeem -stacks- for a shot. Baseball cards have changed a lot from the 90s...

Looking forward to the April fools episode where Kentwin hosts with an Aussie accent.

I bet if people really tried we could junk up the RIP thread even more with petty bickering.

Where is line drawn for deaths relevant enough for J! (or LL) purposes to make the thread?

Peter Straub age 79
Joseph Hazelwood age 75

Yea or nay?

I would say "Yea" for Peter Straub. He has collaborated with Stephen King on some works of his.

For Jeopardy, I think the best way to be objective is if it has hits in the archive. If it has even one hit then I don't see how it wouldn't be valid. Sure you could argue if the last hit was 30 years ago. If it has no hits then it's almost certainly not relevant for Jeopardy purposes.

I have no experience with LL and therefore can't give a knowledgeable opinion.

They do have overlooked death categories, but typically in those cases they spot you the name and ask for something easier. E.g., Hazelwood, they'd more likely ask for Exxon Valdez.

So good to see a fresh game recap thread started first thing in the morning. Would have posted this there but didn’t want to screw up the proper ordering of posts.

I started the RIP thread as a spin-off of the Current Events thread to draw attention to deaths that may not be noticed and would get lost in the clutter of the CE thread.

No, most of them aren't likely to pop up on the show but I'd argue a lot of stuff in the CE thread isn't either.

Good you caught that change. I found this list, but nothing to show it is current. I guess it's current.

Thank you.

The anytime test commercial showing people trying to do it on their phone physically causes me pain...

How do you do that without a keyboard?!!??!
