Re: Thursday, April 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My favorite show has been letting me down a bit recently. Charlie Parker's nickname was Bird not Birdman. It was strange. I am a jazz dork and have never seen him or heard him referred to that way. Beyond that, searching for Birdman on Amazon gets no Charlie Parker. It was weird that they accepted it.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I don't know about the NYC pub trivia audition, but I know they'll get some amazing quiz minds at the Vegas audition. Maybe they are coming around to promoting the ratings boost they have when great players are on the show? The business of ratings and the contestant selection priorities are a myste...

It is wild to see so many smart people on Jeopardy play the game poorly.
James has made it crystal clear how to play, and has proven there is very little margin of error playing him.
It is interesting to watch.

The 5/15/19 NYT crossword puzzle for tomorrow also has a Supreme Court justice name. Rehnquist's successor on the bench (6) Answer: SCALIA Question: How is Scalia right? Scalia was not next on the court after Rehnquist. Scalia was never Chief Justice. Alphabetical order? I'm confused or missing som...

Excellent wrong answer for Becky in Double Jeopardy. Perhaps an all time cool wrong answer (in my book).
The answer "riot" she gave was in no doubt a reference to Sonic Youth's "Teenage Riot"

Re: Monday, March 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have sort of noticed a change in the nature of the clues over the past few weeks. I have no data on this, but the clues seem a bit different. Double jeopardy with multiple word play-ish categories rang a bit strange for me. I was sort of guessing on some turnover in the writers' room? Has anyone e...

The other thing of note is those pens for FJ are really substandard. Everyone on the show says they are tricky and do not work well.
It is high time that the show figure out and better way of recording. If the pens worked better, things like this would be less of a problem.

Tough break for Wilbur. I think he should have gotten credit myself.

Also the j-archive is loaded with examples of them accepting the White Album as the title for that album
whose correct title is "The Beatles". Jeopardy has some explaining to do.

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This games was probably one of the worst TOC games played. From DD hunting, to wagering there was a
lot not to like in this game. For two different players to screw up DD hunting, I think has to be a first.
I don't try to be mean at all, but have to call a spade a spade.

Congrats to Pasha on making the show. My only criticism in your play was not hunting for the DD at the end. Really? That's the only one? You're kinder to me than I was, then. ;) Thanks! Ditto about DD hunting, but you nearly won! You should be proud. Getting on J! and performing well is a great sho...

I have no idea what you're talking about. ^ There are almost always ten new contestants per week. 5 x 2 = 10. That doesn't say anything about how Matt does this week. Simple math. Perhaps you prefer multiple choice: Once upon a time there was a very good Jeopardy champ. In the marketing for the nex...

Re: Tuesday, September 22, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This FJ is a wonderful example of the consequences of the lights.
Clearly this was a question all of them knew, but still could not answer correctly.

This one should be an example for people who yell at their TVs while sitting on their comfy couches.
