Re: Dreams About Jeopardy!

Last year I also had a dream I was a four-time champion, and it happened a few days before James Holzhauer's first game. On my third episode, I broke Roger Craig's single-day winnings record with $93,000 as I wagered big on FJ! and responded correctly. But on my fifth game, I finished in second plac...

Re: Season 37 Predictions

Music package is another one I really want. I am hoping it's the GOAT Think Music because that's my favorite. As you said in the recap thread for the first GOAT episode, in Super Jeopardy!, the lights dimmed during Final Jeopardy! and was used on the regular show in Season 7. I think the reason the...

Re: Season 37 Predictions

Here are my predictions for next season if S36 were to be the last one with Alex hosting: - There would be a new set. - The music package gets refreshed (let's hope the theme music for GOAT doesn't carry over into the regular series) but weekend reruns of S36 still have the 2008 theme. - Jim Thornto...

Re: Jeopardy! Episodes That Got Leaked

I forgot another leak with Ken's loss. On Black Friday 2004, a station in Georgia accidentally aired the Final Jeopardy! from his 75th episode instead of his 73rd win. Also, someone who attended a Season 21 taping in September 2004 posted on a forum about Ken Jennings losing his 75th game; and the ...

Re: Future events for the rest of Season 36

With Alex's health, I would put the chances of the show going on location somewhere incredibly close to nil. Also, the show has scheduled Culver City tapings for the rest of the season (source: the Get Tickets link on the website). In other words, there won't be a Power Players Week this season, is...

Re: Future events for the rest of Season 36

OK, I remember reading it somewhere but I don't remember where exactly (possibly Reddit or Buy A Vowel Boards). But now I can conclude that the CC being held in April is not because of the GOAT tournament, but because the tests to make it on to the show wrapped up at towards the end of January. If i...

Re: Monday, February 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

At the conclusion of the game right when Johnny said "Promotional consideration provided by Geico, Jeopardy is also brought to you by...", that one short-lived music cue from S25 was used again (it was also used on 1/15/19).

Future events for the rest of Season 36

We already had the Tournament of Champions this past November; and then we had GOAT last month (which by the way aired in primetime and thus wasn't part of the syndicated version). This morning I just found out that the College Championship will be pushed back April 6-17 because of GOAT. So I'm gues...

ABC already has a game show on the air that requires three contestants... "Press Your Luck."
And it would be awesome to see the three go head to head on that show.

What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

Apparently, Ken Jennings announced he does not plan to return to the Jeopardy! set after the GOAT tournament. And Brad Rutter finally lost to a human, to the same person he defeated in the Ultimate Tournament of Champions and the Battle of Decades tourney. James Holzhauer is still in his prime, so I...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The key to this game was basically James finding dd3 in the second match. If he had known Final Jeopardy, he would have won the match, and it would have been an exciting contest tomorrow with both Ken and James facing elimination. I correctly answered Iago myself and am amazed that all three of the...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As much a fan of James as I am, it's getting hard to deny that Ken is easily the GOAT player based off his performances so far. I may not really care for him as much as I do James or Brad, but objectively speaking, damn, he truly is something else. Of course Brad or James could easily turn things a...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Updated probabilities: under the "totally random outcome, evenly matched players" assumption, Ken is now a strong favorite to win the tournament (19/27, or about 70%), James is at 6/27 (22%), and Brad at 2/27 (a little over 7%). How credible is that assumption? I think for Ken and James, it seems v...

And DAYUM, Ken! Nicely done! Not looking good for James...sigh. I don't think he's going to win the tournament; I see his legacy getting tarnished. He may not win, but James has had a run of bad luck. The only one whose legacy might be getting tarnished is Brad, and that could be due to playing aga...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And by the way, it was Bleeding Fingers Music who scored the music package for GOAT. More like Bleeding Ears Music, in my insignificant opinion. I believe this arrangement of the Jeopardy! music is heavy sounding because of the tournament featuring the three legends going head to head (GOAT is a lo...

Re: GOAT Tournament: The Return of Super Jeopardy!-Style Points

Moderator note: Spoilerized comments about GOAT tournament results. I watched both matches, and I have to say that so far it does look like the best tournament ever, even more prestigious than a regular ToC. James and Ken are both really good players, and really fun to watch going head to head again...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

James got his redemption and beat Ken Jennings tonight; but at the same time, they both beat Brad Rutter on the signaling device. And Brad finished DJ! with a negative score in the second game, and couldn't play in the FJ! round. However, he was still at his lectern, and normally, the player elimina...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I hated the jazzed up version of the music as well. I wonder if the new music package that was created for this event will carry over to the syndicated series starting next season. - The current music package has been in use for more than 11 years. - Season 36 may be the last season with Alex hosti...
