Re: Rest of Season 37, Changes & Predictions for Season 38

Any chance they'll stop the contestant interviews? This would be as good a time as ever to do it. No chat segment? I would say it's a game show staple and not going to go away. You would like to hear nothing from the players or about them? Or you would like to get it out of the way early like Wheel...

Re: Friday, June 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Funny how different people have different sets of facts in their brains.

To me, I would have thought this was a kids-week-level FJ clue, and my draw literally hit the floor when it went 0/3.

Apparently, I was WILDLY AND COMPLETELY off-base with my thoughts.

Better than Alex.

I said it. I didn't want to say it, but I'm not going to allow sentiment to make me a liar.

What are you trying to accomplish? I legit am trying to learn. Deep down, I do want to learn. Which is why I keep asking. Aight, I'll accept you are saying this in good faith, for the sake of argument. It's entirely obvious that your attempts to learn have abjectly failed. Most people would have le...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Explicitly saying there is a "long" version of the weapon means the more common version is "short" Can't say I've heard of a short bow either. To me, it just seemed like a descriptor. Okay.

Re: Tuesday, February 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS) by Archivists

It's worth noting that Mike Nichols never won a writing Oscar. In fact he doesn't have a writing credit on any of his movies... There was a time when Francis Coppola was considered the greatest director working. In 1974 he released 2 great movies, The Godfather, Part Two and The Conversation . Now ...

Re: Tuesday, February 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS) by Archivists

I thought that was the easiest possible movie director clue but apparently I was wrong. I once knew a Sam Stapleton, a late grandfather of a good friend of mine, and, beyond him being a wise and kind man, I always thought his name sounded cool. Glad this Sam Stapleton represented his name well and t...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

1. No one says you HAVE to "blindly guess" London. YOU are the one suggesting "blindly guessing" is involved. The canonical way to answer the question would be to be aware that the first World's Fair was in London in 1851. This is not a piece of knowledge that is secretly guarded by dragons, it is ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Narrow it down to “A major world city hosting an international event in 1851”. There aren’t a lot of possibilities, plus we just had Paris the clue before, so that’s out. You could assume the first World’s Fair was going to be in a Tier One European city. London is certainly a reasonable guess. How...

You don't have to have. What color is found in the name of a sugar and the name of a bear?
To be fair, white would have worked here as well.

Military people on Jeopardy!

What's the protocol for wearing their uniforms? I know Manny Abell of the $1 win wore his on all his days, but presumably servicepeople (currently serving and former) don't always wear the uniform, otherwise I feel like it would be a more common sight.

thanks

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I get they were kind of thrown for a loop when Alex died. But TPTB should have had a better contingency plan in place than than a revolving door of guest hosts. The sad thing is, I think you're right... they were thrown for a loop. Yes. They were THROWN FOR A LOOP and "CAUGHT OFF GUARD" when an oct...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

If Dr. Oz clears the bar, why not Jerry Springer? He is far more erudite than this show would indicate, and probably would like the chance to host something more along those lines. Why not former President Bill Clinton? He's been featured in clues before, and would probably get a kick out of it. Why...
