Re: Friday, July 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I really enjoyed Robin’s enthusiasm and the joy she expressed in taking Alex’s place seemed sincere.

No guess on FJ. Put down Mary as a joke guess.

Re: Thursday, July 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rekha's guess on DD1 did not fit the category. I wonder if she forgot it was HOWARD'S END or if she just threw out a guess to have something? The clue is certainly easier when paying attention to the category which DD time allows enough of a pause to do it. Tony's father's name was Howard. I would ...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

I was in Cleveland last week and drove past the stadium but didn’t notice (or take notice of) the statues. My wife and I did have a delightful time strolling along Lake Erie. Visiting James Garfield was a little creepy.

Re: Wednesday, July 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

While the final clue seemed critical in yesterday’s game, it only becomes critical as a result of a lot of other answers. One that struck me as being almost as off base as the Sondheim answer was Josh’s response of “Leigh” for the GWTW actress Whoopi Goldberg hosted a documentary about. That one co...

I don't ever do precalls for FJ, but when the list of African Monarchs I can name is exactly 1, I made an exception. :)
That was me as well.

I was hoping we’d have another TDD on DD3. Guess Josh wishes he had.

Paul said “What is lox?” for DJ26.
Thanks, the fix is in.
Don't say that about game shows!
If not for the fixes, we might not have Jeopardy.

I had to watch this on YouTube because of out of town night work. Just one clue after the one about Amazon, my feed was interrupted by an Amazon ad.

Got FJ on a guess of a famous 20th century meeting although the code word didn’t really lead me to anything in particular.

Re: How Did George Stephanopoulos Do as Host?

I gave him an 8. Thought he was a little better than Sanjay.

Honestly, they are all running together in my head. I will be glad when S38 starts and we (hopefully) have a permanent host.

Re: Monday, July 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had a feeling after seeing her first two games, that Jen would make a bad wager. Just wasn't sure if it would be another overwager or she would try to keep Jaclyn locked out of 2nd without realizing she couldn't beat Tim if he got it wrong. There's no such thing as an overwager from Jen's positio...

No hits for Biz Markie in the J-Archive. Do we expect that to change?
That's genuinely surprising. I've even used him in a TD before.
I first learned he existed when I read he no longer exists.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I found a listing for an attorney in New York by that spelling that said she was admitted to the bar in 1986. If she finished law school at 25 she would have been around 30 when this game aired.

Edit…Found something giving her current age as 64, making her 34 at the time of this game.

Forgot one more comment for the 10/19/95 game above. Does Sara get to blame Schoolhouse Rock! for missing J25? I thought the same thing. Agree on the FJ wagering. I don’t get why second wouldn’t go all in, especially with no third player to worry about. Always thought it was nice to offer a tie on ...

I didn't catch the word area in the San Diego hotel clue and thought that was poorly written because Coronado is a separate jurisdiction. If you have the chance, catch the film Noir television series Coronado 9 starring Rod Cameron. One episode features a daring climax scene on the roof of the hote...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

There is a segment on GMA this morning featuring George S. and his hosting stint. Nothing earth shattering, just some behind the scenes shots and staging. We see him studying the big sheet of clues and players saying how great he was.

Spoiler alert based on who is at the champion podium.

Re: How Did Sanjay Gupta Do as Host?

He's alright and it's nice to have a real doctor instead of a fake one guest hosting the show for once. As of now, Ken and Mayim are the only two guest hosts I enjoyed playing along with the most. I still think Richards is slightly better than Cohen and Rodgers, but like Oz, not my personal favorit...
