Was anyone else aided by Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis" for DD1?

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I really don't want this to come off as rude, but shouldn't Aaron Rodgers be focused elsewhere? He wont host until after his season is over, which could be as soon as this weekend! Knowing some NFL players, he should expect to hear plenty of taunting from opposing D-lines in these playoffs. Maybe t...

Re: Tuesday, January 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

it seemed the trigger guy was letting contestants get in before Ken stopped talking? Or was my mind playing tricks there? I caught this as well, brushed it off as maybe an editing thing. I noticed quite a few edits in today's show, something I don't normally pay attention to. Precalled Soupy Sales ...

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In this game, I was reminded of a game earlier this season in which Marni Nixon was mentioned for the first time ever. It was a pleasant surprise to see a clue about Keith Haring, one of my favorite artists, who had been mentioned only twice before in Jeopardy history. As a young lad, I remember get...

I say boooo to the writers not demanding the correct answer be (Giannis) Antetokounmpo! The man has been the NBA's MVP for the last 2 years, he has become a pretty big name, not only in length but in stature.

Shoot...

I know Alex wanted to leave a final 30 second message on his last episode, and I wish he was able to do so. The montage at the end was very nice nonetheless.

Nice to at least have one instafinal this week, but it doesn't make up for me blanking on Larry Hagman and Gregory Hines. Those stung, especially as a big fan of the latter :oops:

Re: Tuesday, January 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is a tough 4th Podium victory to call, personally, because I also fell into the trap of hajj, heretic, and atlas. But considering the rules of the phantom podium, I sneak in a win with yesterday, yellow dwarf, green algae, red shift, and Ghostbusters + a correct FJ solve. I also got the Carrie ...

Re: Monday, January 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Couldn't get off Crusoe for FJ so add me to the list that said Friday

This FJ was also educational for me because I would have bet the farm that Don Quixote was 1500s, not 1600s. That's a good thing to fix.

I'm going to encapsulate how I feel now after watching that FJ wagering debacle.

Please let it continue when I get my shot. I'll take a free, undeserved win over a close, competitive loss any day of the week.

Re: Monday, December 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was anyone else left wanting of Alex's pronunciation of "Daniel-San"? IMO, saying that name requires much more subtle anger and authority.

+1 said Hudson River as a pure guess

FJ was gotten off Utzon, but I will keep a mental note that 1973 is a big indicator as well.

Really not a quality game I must say, and I am a gentle critic as I know how difficult it can be to write trivia clues. Anyone here ever heard of Diana Nyad? Name rings 0 bells. Also caught the lack of actual questions in the film category and found it pretty sloppy. Meanwhile, you know PLANTS & FLO...

At least FJ was kind to me. Had the correct response down instantly while I hoped that I wasn't tricked into this being some line from Allen Ginsberg.

FJ: 95% confident it was Socrates
I'll take the reciprocal. Socrates was the only "ancient" who came quickly to mind as having been famously tried and sentenced, but I only had about 5% confidence.
Wouldn't the reciprocal be 100/95?

I do want to make a comment on the $1000 clue in LITERARY VIDEO GAMES. I'll put it in spoilers in case someone plans on playing BioShock one day (and you absolutely should). If you played the first BioShock to completion, you learn that Andrew Ryan is NOT the villain of the game. He is a brilliant, ...

I guess I'll mention it since no one else has: No BMS for just Adams? Wow...

That DD1 response made me make quite a face. I mean, what a power couple that would have been!

Is anyone else sick and tired of game shows mentioning the Bible and other religious nonsense books and presenting them as indisputably true?

Sheeeeeeeeesh.
No, chill out.
