Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

20TH CENTURY DATES On this date, two different men were president of the US, and two others were VPs who would later go on to become President. What was January 20, 1961? This is related to another fact about VPs that I've heard come up, namely that At Nixon's inauguration, there were four men on t...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

And contrary to the general public's opinion, I don't see LeVar as a legit candidate due to his age & the show's apparent desire for a 20+ year-stint. In fact, I wouldn't be shocked if somebody told me that he was only picked to guest-host due to the media campaign; even with it, he only got 1 week...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

When does Jeopardy go into summer reruns? That would be the time to make an announcement about the permanent host situation. Then they can let the dust settle over all the guest hosts before they do anything. Summer reruns begin 8/16. Yep. The last three guest hosts (and their charities): LeVar Bur...

I wrote Heathcliff to have something as it's not as if I have read or seen anything that would have helped me have a better idea on the clue.
Same here. I can see the path from "proud" to Pride and Prejudice, but even if I had made the connection, I still wouldn't have come up with Darcy.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

The announcement for the permanent host will come when it comes and it will be immediately national news everywhere. If that person is really one of guest hosts, with no one else under consideration, then a second hand is not needed to count the possible choices. Which of the guest hosts do we thin...

A bit misleading IMO to call it a '70s movie.
It released in May '79. How is that misleading? It would be misleading to call it anything else.

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

Matt and the escalators reminded me of the ones I've experienced with combinations of height or steepness or length at Candlestick Park and Moscone Center. So different than a basic two level one at a mall. I'm pretty sure I know which escalator he's talking about, and yeah it is really long. It's ...

LSV has no chance at a pefecto today as TV SHOW EPISODE TITLES has to have at least one he cannot get. I think I felt today (with a one day delay) how you felt about The Knick. One beat after Watchmen's episode titles, "Yeah, no one's getting that one." I got it because once you hear it, that first...

The question was over before I processed the clue, but I would not have gotten Kreb's.
