Re: TD 428 - Short Quiz on Random Trivia - Scores through Second Bonus

There are some names that just conjure wonderful images. Elephant and Castle was one of those.

Likewise, even though I knew it would sheep, I was so amused to find George Strait among the answers, I had to do that one.

Enjoying the quiz train from somewhere in the vicinity of the oil pan. Roll on!

Re: Jeopardy!'s 2018-19 contestants - where are they from?

On my paperwork, they specifically asked for the location where you are NOW, and excluded where you are FROM. I think this is because we filmed little promos called "hometown howdies", but they insisted on using your current location. They run those in the viewing market of your current station, NOT...

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

So. I am a season 36 contestant. I'd like to offer a few general observations. Alex seems to be holding up pretty well. He is still doing Q&A in taping breaks, resting backstage between shows, keeping up with the pace of the game despite the jumping around. He's lost a bit of weight, he's a bit pale...

Re: Friday, July 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ. Could only be describing the boat that responded to Titanic rescue. I was surprised as well that none of them got it. I said US Post Office. Now I'm curious whether that would have been acceptable, since they took Postal Service. Did not get campobella (am I even close on the spelling?)...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I was at the Columbus audition today. I think I did well on the test even though I had a couple blanks. I interviewed to the best of my ability and played off the others and the interviewers well. Hope I got this one! How did they run the interview? Did they ask about your 5 stories? In 2017 they a...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

Thanks for the details, Molly! I'd ask when your game airs, but that could accidentally give me knowledge about the game previous to yours. :D Molly posted she was taping July 23 for an airing the Sept. 16-20 week. If she did not see Johnny then that narrows it to Sept. 16-18. If she did not play i...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

Taping begins tomorrow (Monday), and I wonder if anyone who attends a taping will tell us if there is new theme music or if the set gets slightly changed. I'm especially curious to what the new title card will look like for S36 I was at the taping on July 23rd. Phrasing everything I say as needed t...

Re: Wild result after FJ (old game)

"Let's not get silly here. http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5802 " Thanks, Mark! That appears to be the exact game. YOU guys are amazing! But how did they award the money? If it was 2017, I'm guessing it was during the guaranteed minimum award period. It indicates Carlos got $1000 and F...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

I'm very pleased for Emma, and I can't think of anyone who would turn down the ToC invite. It's genuinely not up to the contestants. I really think you have to look at the production picture. Whatever the 35th season prize money budget was for the show, James has to have blown out of the water. The ...

Re: TD 426 - Grab Bag (Q1-Q3 revealed)

Curious who got the singleton on Red Baron? I was going to use that, and said, Naw, everybody will say that. Nuts. Got near-sheeped instead.

Didn't mind sheeping too much on the next one. I like that 5 people said Amy K. Family-friend from when we were kids.
