Re: Tuesday, November 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow, that's 2 games in a row in which I thought the returning champion was strong enough to be more than a one-and-done, then that ended up being the case regardless...

Re: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think what ultimately sealed Brian's fate was his tendency to guess incorrectly. It's hard to keep winning games with an average of 3-5 incorrect responses per episode, and I think in this game going against a strong opponent in Scott, it caught up with him. Nevertheless I enjoyed his 3-game run o...

Re: Wednesday, October 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Much like the first game of this season, this is another instance where low DD wagering proves costly. Cole definitely could've had this game locked up and not even had to have worried about FJ if he had bet more on the second DJ DD. And yeah, I get the reason why contestants sometimes may not feel ...

Is $-3,600 a new "in the hole" record for a returning champion? Just curious.
no: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=1911

Wonder if Alex subtly hinted at Ken becoming the next Jeopardy host with the "looking over your his shoulder" joke.

Season 35 had the 4-game curse. Season 36 also had a 3-game curse for some time. Is this gonna be the season of the 2-game curse???

Mason seems like a pretty good player. Not sure if he's TOC material but I could definitely see him winning at least another game or two!

Shame that Robert is already off the show. He's got solid buzzer chops and is very good at uncovering DD's, but unfortunately the latter doesn't mean much if you can't solve them!

Re: Tuesday, September 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Already a second major screw-up in just 7 episodes into the season. Mike Richards, you're making yourself look bad! I concur with the others saying that Tyler should be invited back in the future. This FJ clue is way too obscure, and is by far the worst one I've seen in a long time. Dana should've l...

Re: Thursday, September 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Crazy that we've had two games in a row now where a contestant crossed out the right FJ answer and thus got it wrong. Combine that with David's tragic DD miss, and Joe is one of the luckiest champions I've seen in recent years.

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

EASILY one of the worst calls the judges have made in a very long time, possibly even the worst ever! I mean seriously, what in the world is so phonetically different about "Barry" compared to "Berry"? There have been MANY other misspellings that were far more off that the judges accepted in the pas...

Re: Monday, September 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting way to start off the season. Jeff certainly looked like he had it in the bag, but sadly poor wagering on his part did him in. Nevertheless, it's good to see a new Jeopardy episode after a long 3-month drought!

Re: Friday, June 12, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It says a lot about Zach's skill as a player when he loses money on all three Daily Doubles and still wins the game. Pretty talented contestant indeed! Shame this season was cut short due to you-know-what. But overall, it was pretty fun to watch, particularly James getting his revenge on Emma and Ja...

Funnily enough, I am already seeing YouTube comments from people new to the show commenting about how "amazing" Jerry Harvey's 2-day total was. "OMG $70K in just 2 games!", they're screaming.

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sadly it seems like today's game was a classic case of "live by the sword, die by the sword". Kyle made a good move in DJ by making the first DD in that round a true one, but it didn't work out for him and it knocked the wind out of his sails. I also agree with Mark Barrett that it's hard to say for...
