Re: Tuesday, October 11, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOIL

I've been watching east coast feeds recently, but watched the time shifted Seattle version today, and saw a big credit roll at the end. Does that happen all the time on other peoples' stations? First time I've seen it in a long time. How do you watch the East Coast feeds, pray tell? Sorry, I may ha...

Re: Tuesday, October 11, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOIL

Best part of the game for me: seeing Joon's Cheshire Cat grin as the camera panned their faces during the final. I fully expected some green screen magic to make you disappear.

Re: Monday, October 10, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

Congrats again Joon! As a fellow physicist, I realize that a Jeopardy math category is easy and worth using as a chance to bet big on a DD. However, math terminology is not as cut-and-dried as arithmetic. I don't know if I would have had the guts to do a true DD on a bottom row math terminology clue...

Re: Tuesday, October 4, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

Great job Joon! Serious cash! I would never have though Chekov would play second base: seems like a catcher to me. The perfect place for a huge true daily double. For someone who was getting the arithmetic questions like they were buzzer beaters, the leisurely pace of a daily double was easy. Good t...

Physics teachers who used to play quizbowl - represent! Way to go Joon! Some impressive gets by all three, on some rather tough questions. I found the lit questions particularly tough. Looking forward to the rest of the week.

Re: Is CBC reusing end credits?

CBC has often run promos for their own shows over the credits of Jeopardy - and run the credits faster or in part of the screen. I had thought that they would have taken the actual text and reformatted it to run in the smaller time/smaller screen, but it wouldn't surprise me if they simply reran the...

Nice job by Matt to steal the game. I thought Amit was going to win another one. He needed to have bet $3200 in Cat Scan DD I and won't fault him for betting low in the $2000 box. I'm with you on the Cat Scan DD - Amit needed wager big or wager nothing. After a whole category on CAT scans without a...
