I used to skip celebrity games before I started posting on the Sony board plus I went through a spell where I didn’t watch much at all so I am sure I missed at least one.

I don't think I saw the three 2001 games. I would have said the same about the 1992 game, but I remembered Carol Burnett singing "It's De-Lovely" and then throwing "What is it!?" on the end when Alex prompted her on phrasing.

I missed Jordan the first time around, and got it this time because I remembered it. Everything else I got from knowledge acquired outside these episodes.

Highly unlikely (but not impossible) that I had ever seen any of the episodes previously.

I was probably recording the shows by '92, but no way I'd remember them...Still I fast forwarded through these, looking for bright spots...of which I admit there were a few...

No guess.

I believe I'd seen Wednesday's and Friday's games before.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

I see I'm not alone in sweeping the week. I'm not positive, but I think at least one of these games was a first-time view. I really want them to continue this process of going back and cleaning up old games for re-broadcast. (Note to TPTB: By "cleaning up" I don't mean subbing in different clues and cutting other parts out. Please knock that off. I just mean making good video/audio transfers for digital broadcast.)

I enjoy the old games as well. I didn’t see the M$M the first time so the next couple of weeks will be great. I will probably pass on the college tournament rerun. If new shows actually happen in September I may watch the last few games from S36 when they show them just to get back into the swing of things.

Might have seen the 2010 one before, but don't remember.
Wasn't born when the other ones aired originally.

I don't recall specifically seeing any of these episodes; went for quite a while at one point when I didn't watch much TV at all for quite a few years. I did enjoy them this time around, though.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

What I find interesting about this week's results is that we're currently running at 57% getting all 5 correct, yet I don't think that I would categorize any of this week's FJs as being "Kids Week" like I normally would for especially easy FJs.

Almost certainly had not seen all these shows but probably had seen at least one.

Kids week is harder than Celebrity Week.
