Re: Monday, March 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

the Category was Initially Yours, i think they should of Had to Say the Initials. Agreed. Requiring the contestants to know the correct initials is the whole point of the category; otherwise, it’s a random set of clues about famous people. I’m sure Alex (or Ken, or Mike) would have asked for a BMS....

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

There have been a number of players from the Fleming era on during Alex’s run.

Re: Monday, March 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I really want to see that Warhol portrait. I couldn’t believe Warhol was a TS with pop artist in the answer. Never heard of the guy the player said but he was seven the day Warhol was shot. I don’t think I have ever watched his show or read anything about his medical advice so I am viewing him with...

Re: Monday, March 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I enjoyed his first day as host. I can see an argument either way for the archive so I will stay neutral.

I don’t think he reminded Nick he could bet $1000 on DD1 when he had $800.

Blank for me on FJ. I thought of times that try men’s souls but I think that’s this side of the pond.

Interesting it doesn’t mention he was a very good pitcher. His proudest achievement was holding the record for longest World Series scoreless streak.

Re: How Did Katie Do as Host?

I had Ken at 8 and Mike at 6, so Katie slides in at about 7.8. Katie is very watchable and didn't detract from the show, so I'd be fine with having on for another week or two, or having her come back at a later date. After two weeks of Mike, I was ready to move on. Returning the favor of you piggyb...

Weird that video would go to a local outlet and not to one of the show's social media pages
I was thinking the same thing. I went to Jeopardy’s home page to specifically look for the video since we saw it for the others. Luckily I got a hit on the Detroit paper.

A quick Q&A with Dr. Oz before he hosts the show. He talks a lot about his friendship with Alex and what he thought about him.

Re: Rank the Three Guest Hosts So Far

The board limits on polls are going to be a problem after this as one that includes Oz is going to require 24 options. I had Ken Katie Mike. I really liked Katie more than I expected. Her lack of experience in this format held her back at first but she really grew into the role as it went on. I stil...

Re: How Did Katie Do as Host?

I gave her an eight, same I gave Ken. I wasn’t impressed the first few days and after a week I was glad we were halfway done. But she really picked up her performance this week. She showed a lot more enthusiasm and seemed to dial back the sweet big sister bit I perceived the first few days. I know s...

I hope everyone boycotting Dr. Oz didn’t laugh at the “snowflakes” who refused to watch Couric. My local station didn’t carry it due to basketball. Then my go to source from the bottom of the world got blocked by Sony. So I had to watch it on another YouTube channel with the jumpy camera they use to...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Just to make it clear, I was referring to the Jeopardy Facebook page. It doesn’t appear to be moderated at all. Glad to hear the players-only page runs a tight ship. Hope to be able to check it out one day.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

This teen tourney FJ sparked a bit of outrage on the old Sony board in 2004-- POPULAR FICTION: This series of over 200 books began with "Kristy's Great Idea" in 1986 ...it was described as a sort of neutron bomb meant to take out boys but not girls. I also said Newfoundland retriever, as "Newfies" ...

In the background of the tweet picture with Katie standing up, is that a down-type insulated jacket? Even in January is that needed in the Los Angeles area? These upcoming two weeks of games should go along fine without too many extremes of reactions and comments of Katie needing to be the permanen...

Re: Thursday, March 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If you're in Morgan's position and playing for the TS as she did, which wager do you like better, $801 or $4599? If you assume it will be a triple stumper then $0 is the best wager. The $801 option is the more appealing of the two choices since it's closer to $0. I don't think there is a lot of use...

I agree Sting needed captions. Several things combined to make it a tough category to understand. The poor audio, his accent, and the fact I don’t think he was speaking that loudly to begin with. (I have never heard him speak so I don’t know if he is normally soft spoken). Also, reading off a telepr...

I fluked myself into getting this FJ right. For some reason the words "title role" came to mind although neither the category or clue suggested it. With that logic I ended up going with the right response. Same here. I even laughed at the Oklahoma response as nobody was playing Oklahoma. Music Man ...
