which episode had that long credit roll in the early KJ run?
his 1st episode from 6/2/04 because they ran the material fast in the game.
I was actually referring to his eighth game.

Re: Full Credit Rolls

For the credits brigade is it more about the music or the names? I know I was happy when a long credit roll from early in KJ's run was uploaded in pristine quality because it gave me a chance to record the rarely heard middle-eight without the sax and guitar. That piece of music is pulse-pounding a...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

The final question on today's rerun was "What continent lies in all four hemispheres?" The answer was Africa, but I can't figure out why Asia wouldn't be right as well. Indonesia crosses into the southern hemisphere, and Russia stretches into the western hemisphere near Alaska.

So based on the multiple counterexamples in this thread alone, can we assume that #50 on this Mashable article is hogwash?

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

The video that used to be on YouTube has since been taken down, but in 1982 a woman called Shari Mason was on The New $25,000 Pyramid. She argued with the judges saying "library" should be accepted for "libra". Evidently Shari was also on Blockbusters in 1981, and argued with the judges saying "Gang...

I hope this stifles once and for all the naysayers who say Emma didn't belong in the ToC. $65,000 against one of the toughest champs ever? After already beating him once? That's nothing short of incredible.

Funny enough, Alan almost could've gotten away with his missolve of "Kelly Anne Clarkson" in the first round. Kelly Clarkson's middle name is Brianne.

Re: Fun with GSN's "Best Ever Trivia Show" [Spoilers]

Leslie Shannon (at least it sure looked, acted and sounded like her) won $1,000 and faced Ryan to try to up her total to $10K. Leslie being on the show makes me wonder if there's any S&P rule regarding knowing the panelists. I know on shows like Pyramid, contestants who were friends with that week'...

Re: Holzhauer betting for 2nd in the TOC to make more money?

Hasn't the first place prize always been just a minimum in all the tournaments, same as second and third? Did they change that this year?

Re: Trivia about Trivia: Obscure Record Holders

I would go further and say that there was a good chance that no one would have heard of Dan Melia at all. His first win came with him trailing Patrick Friel, no slouch himself, and requiring a sole get in FJ. Then his next two games were against Atish and he barely eked out the win after a tie the ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

And it seems the player only has 'higher' and 'lower' options. A tie makes it wrong either way. That feels like a rule violation. If you, the player, are given two options, only those options should be possible. It'd be like WWTBAM suddenly giving you four wrong answers and expecting you to pick "E...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

I wonder if anyone has ever tried to bet more than the maximum allowed bet. I'm sure they'd edit it out, but I wonder if anyone has ever tried, whether accidentally or joking. Alex: "You trail James by a considerable margin." Contestant: "I'll wager $56,000. I'm good for it, I swear." I always said...

Eugene was hard to watch. It does seem unfair to bring back players who previously blew it.

why was the pronunciation of dr. dree accepted for dr. dre?
Because it could reasonably be pronounced that way.
but it is not...i have seen other mispronunciations penalized
Phonetic mispronunciations are acceptable. If you pronounce it how it's spelled, you're good.

Re: $75,000 rule

Makes more sense that Frank would just report the $75,000 that he received. That way, Jeopardy gets to say that they made the charitable contribution, and they get the write-off.

I feel like a previous Jeopardy champ mentioned on twitter that shout-outs have been discouraged for quite some time, just never enforced. Can any recent contestants confirm or deny?

Re: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Incidentally, James' average is $79,566 if you consider Day 6 (his only sub-$30,000 game) and outlier and don't count it.
