Re: What ought to happen next?

Regardless of any decisions the grand poo-bahs make regarding any future streaming, one thing I would hope they can do is somehow convince the TV contract-holders to allow Jeopardy to put up the final Alex episode on YouTube where practically anyone would be able to find and watch it. Only this epi...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

A contract would be a minor hurdle at best. It would get done in a heartbeat. I am more worried about a shutdown in LA again. The situation is getting worse. https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2020/11/12/health-officials-warn-la-county-could-tighten-restrictions-if-covid-19-case-surge-continues/ If I ...

Re: OBIT: Alex Trebek

Damn. When will his last recorded game air? According to the article I read, Christmas Day. A nice last Christmas present for the fans but sadly it won’t air in a lot of markets. I saw that his last day in the studio was October 29. Has anyone heard if his last day was planned for October 29 or if ...

Is it just me, or was this one of the worst set of boards ever written? Did Harry Friedman's leaving really affect the writing that much, or is it the pandemic changing their processes?

Re: Glenn Kagan Sues Sony For Age Discrimination

Re: 2021 College Championship...in teams

Fascinating. Presumably, they will be bringing in contestants from all over the country, so maybe they will reopen casting soon for the regular season Or maybe they would force a two week quarantine during a college break? or maybe it will be filmed away from California where there are less restric...

Re: 2021 College Championship...in teams

I thought Michael Richards said the show wasn't broken...I thought Alex Trebek didn't like the All-Stars format, I hope they don't use the All-Stars format again, but how else could J! be a team competition?

I got UK, but I thought it was kind of arbitrary that one is supposed to know that specifically UK instead of GB appears on that specific map for a FJ. I imagine UK is used instead of GB generally, but to hinge a FJ on that fact I think is a bit unfair.

I thought of Picasso but dismissed him because of his association with Paris. I know he was born in Spain and proudly associated with Spain, but I didn't think he would be grouped with other Spanish artists. https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2015/feb/20/pablo-picasso-spanish-french-art-painte...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Part 1 was the 50-question test, which I described on page 7. That was a one-on-one Zoom call; responses were spoken aloud. I've done this step more recently (August), and it was different -- it was essentially the same as the initial online contestant test, but with about 8-10 potential contestant...

I would have answered Barry, I forgot his name is Berry.

The wide shot of the three contestants looks terrible. I hope they put the podiums back together when the protocols are lifted. I can't read all the scores without twisting my neck during the wide shot.
