Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As of this episode, my DirecTV DVR has replaced the Alex Trebek poster image with a generic "Jeopardy!" logo. image Same Here. i have U-Verse Today I learned that not every board member reads every post of the Reretaken Down thread: https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9&p=346504#p346504 :lol: Are...

Sara Haines's pronunciation of Anosmia was just awful. :?
I thought it was kind of pretty. Wrong, not helpful, but it sounded nice...And it didn't seem to faze the player. (For those who didn't watch, pronounced as if it were Italian or Spanish, with accent on the penultimate syllable.)

Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I dunked on Ken the other day for mispronouncing a rather minor clue, Bemidji. Today he made a serious mispronunciation of err. Alex would have never done that. Can you tell me how these two pronunciations differ, or did you err? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAIGw4ESRE8 Thanks, seaborgium! Evide...

Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is me trying my best to keep myself from posting a long rant, but here I go: To expect the participants of Jeopardy! , viewers and contestants alike, to be able to come up a majority of the correct responses to the A STREAM OF TV category is a joke. There were 5 clues today about programs on 4...

I didn't think Reno was the capital of NV. Worse. I couldn't remember it at all. "Silver City" loomed and pushed out the right name... :oops: Ken's best moment of his tenure, when Hannah got bogged down in espadrilles - Let's call the whole thing off! Casual but pointed.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

It's worth pointing out that Katie Couric on Bill Maher referred to "the cult of Trump," so I think she was referring to the percentage who do believe "that nonsense."

Also, I swear that I've heard "poinsettia" pronounced incorrectly more often than correctly. Absolutely. The other one like this that bugs me is "nuptial." For some reason most people pronounce it like it ends -ual rather than -ial. Which pronunciation do you think is incorrect? Because it takes se...

I don't think Smith & Wollensky was even a fair question. This is a chain with half a dozen restaurants in rich people venues. Not the same as asking about Procter & Gamble. They let anybody walk down Third Avenue in NYC. I don't know if a movie has ever featured it, but I've passed it and noticed ...

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Jennifer might get negged for "deltoids", but Ken never said specifically that the response had to start and end with "d". If he had, I hope the clue wouldn't have called for a plural, as this one did. I realize "jewelry" would have given it away, but "luxury" is vague, so my first though...

Tuesday's correct response had my mind trying to come up with various puns. I was thinking along the lines of Walter Kerr's famous three-word review of the play I Am a Camera : Me no Leica.

Has anyone even heard of Ted Lasso? (besides Vixey) :? I've seen the first season twice, and cannot recommend it highly enough. Some of you have way too much time on your hands. I don't even watch network TV, & the writers expect us to know every random streamed show? Seriously? I didn't remember t...

Re: Thursday, January 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The writers, in the last few years, have often used definitions that are a different part of speech from the word being defined. It's really sloppy. The name of this dessert made with sponge cake also means "of little importance" Grrrrrr Maybe they're saving space. I might read that as [something] ...

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was moved by Ken's tribute. I agree with him, "grace" is the word. As others have said, got a little bogged down by "The Meadows" till realizing translating the first part was easier and led to the correct response... I grew up near a racetrack in PA called The Meadows. Now I realize it was probab...
