Re: Long-standing Jeopardy Traditions That We haven't seen in a long time

It got mentioned here already, but Potent Potables used to be a common enough category that it was used on every Celebrity Jeopardy SNL skit. Now that I can actually get questions in it, I can’t remember the last time it came up. The Archive tends to be helpful with such things as far as J! goes. I...

Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If Alex is going to be doubly wrong and have to make a correction better on names from opening remarks and not the scoreboard. Jennifer had one win and already Alex was bringing up Jeopardy James and Jason Zuffranieri. Later Alex had to apologize for botching the champ's last name calling him Zeffer...

Many pros for Jennifer, and now with the game archived, including 33R. On the con side the 5W was meaningless today though could matter in a closer game.

I forgot to add thanks to WAKA. Locally KPIX and other network affiliates were (and still are) showing the testimony. Down in Alabama perhaps they've had enough as J! aired at the regular time in Montgomery.

Re: Wednesday, December 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Aww, no WWE today. The first segment (and the game as a whole) was a joy for tracking things with 3 categories played straight down with no jumping around. We'll see how Jennifer does tomorrow if either or both opponents do not play with the orderly approach. Once again it was the champ picking firs...

$4600 for me plus the missed DD. Missed the FJ! clue.

Only associated the dog with 1920s and clammed as I did not know/recall the TV info. Knew not to guess fleas, but did not know the pest.

DD1 on the 8th clue: 800-400 [springs trapdoor] Broadway legend misidentified as Phyllis Diller.

Crazy lach trash this game
Yes, a lot for 4th podium, indeed.

Alex winning with 9R and one of those a DD is no easy path to victory.

The DJ! round had a category WHAT A DISASTER! and it was appropriate today. Poor (host) Alex had to give Mohammed +$1600 for an $800 response originally ruled incorrect. He then had to add $800 to Alex's score from the same clue as he said she was correct as well though only got back to where she wo...

It's not everyday there is a 3-women game. I had "Ladies' Night" by Kool & the Gang in my head. Even though I knew the WWE category would be more pop culture than actual wrestling knowledge I still had to laugh when it came up. Different spelling but Gabrielle's last name of Merken made me think of ...

j-archive.com not working for me, so no guesstimate for when I can archive the game. I'll check later and do it when my time/site accessibility line up.
