They should just do the simple thing and pick a host that will make everybody happy.
Unless they can bring Alex back from the dead, that isn’t happening.

Jeopardy has had a few issues with clues in the past that got people upset and I don’t recall an on air apology.

Another Roget here.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I won yesterday to tie my personal records for both wins and match points and set a new record for three pointers. Unfortunately, it wasn’t good enough to get promoted. I finished tied for the last spot, but they had a much higher MPD so they get the C ticket. Turns out picking Pinta instead of Lusi...

Re: Friday, June 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Got FJ on a guess. Read the story in high school but that was a long time ago. I do think the host should remind players of the DD rules. Always hated Alex mentioning scores. No big deal if it is 25,000/$2,000/$1,000 and he says it is a runaway. But if it is $23,400/$11,800 /$9,000 it is a big deal ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I surrendered what I believe is my first ever 9(5) day. In my defense, my opponent’s third best category is film and they missed Segal. That drops me to sixth with the top four moving to C. First is locked in and a three way tie for second one point ahead. I am actually tied for fifth but they have ...

Re: Thursday, June 17, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had to watch this one on line so I missed bits of the game but FJ was easy since I’ve been to Vaduz. It’s like some crappy town in Alabama or Mississippi but they’ve got awesome stamps. Great game out of the blocks by Emily. It did seem a bit unfair for the BMS on those Browns, former CA gobs. Sc...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Sitting in the final promotion spot to C. Yesterday was odd. My Science score is .277 and I was assigned zero for quark, which I missed. My Game/Sport is .573 (much better on Sport than Game) and I bagged three on North Carolina. Granted, women’s soccer isn’t a mainstream sport, but still. Got one p...

Re: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sarah very possibly made the FJ wager that shows the absolute worst winning chances. So of course she wins. She tried to stay ahead of Evan but added the dollar instead of subtracting. But even without the math error, she is below the leader’s MSBIW on a miss. I might have bet zero from the lead as...

Acclaimed American actor and singer Paul Robeson, whose international fame was established via his performance of "Ol' Man River" in Show Boat, was also closely identified with what Shakespeare character, whom he portrayed in London (1930) and on Broadway (1943)?

I was completely lost on that Final. None of those locations meant anything to me and I couldn't find anything to pin it on anyone, or even any time. I ended up on Marilyn Monroe, and I'm still not sure if I was really close to the correct answer or really, really far away. Her second husband was J...

Nice job by SG. What a relief after last week! I’ve never watched her before but she’s very good here.
In other words, you find her attractive.

A couple nitpicks on the clues.

How did Plymouth Rock become a symbol of freedom after it split in two?

Also, the possession arrow didn’t eliminate the jump ball after a basket. (The inbounds pass did that). The arrow replaced the jump ball after a held ball.

Sounded like she said “doctorate” rather than doctrine. But I am in a hotel and have no way to rewatch it.

I matched Caitlin’s response. I figured that was wrong because I didn’t think they’d ask players something difficult to spell.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

The only thing that was at all offputting was her reminding us repeatedly that she’s a PhD neuroscientist. By saying so explicitly? I think her commercial is affecting people's memory. Otherwise I wonder if one or other of us was watching a different show. She said she's a neuroscientist at her int...
