We all have our strengths here. I got final right off the bat before I even finished reading the question; then again, I choke completely on a lot of plays and films that folks find as gimmees. I was rather surprised when he ended up mentioning a wife, as his jazz hands intro lead me to believe ... otherwise. Such a touchy-feely fellow he is, too.

Funny: I thought "Albania" in the clue made the FJ pretty much a giveaway. R4, I reaaallly hope Eric wasn't mugging in his introductory shot because Austin made it the latest thing.

I wouldn't be surprised if Austin, Alan, and maybe Buzzy could all be plotted somewhere on the autism spectrum. I'm not sure Austin could help the mugging -- might have been a his response to nerves.

I say enough already with the cute gestures and mugging. The contestants should all be told to SHUT UP during the game unless they are giving answers. Any cute shit they want to express can be done during the interviews, which Alex is extremely adept at shutting down. The only thing they should be allowed to do is write something on their FJ screen - especially if they are in a losing position. Unlike so many others, JEOPARDY has always been an intelligent and dignified show and this bullshit needs to GO.

As a Seattlite, I find her hair dye actually fairly subdued or conservative, more blue than actual purple, which some folks color their locks in honor of University of Washington. She lost me at robotics team during her interview.

Poor Grandpa Jim... past it and didn't know it. Sadly, I took the point of the military lady's story to be that she was hip, not square, didn't quite work.

One of the poorer games we've had in a while, although we've just come off a couple of weeks of Champions which may skew it a bit. Final was a freaking total giveaway, so I was still mildly shocked that neither of the challengers got it.

On the one hand, I thought Bryce was totes adorbs, on the other hand he pinged the like hell! I'm not buying the FTM though, I've met enough dorky boys like him. Usually, I save this for later, but the Wheel of Fortune at champ ping like hell too, despite the wife and three kids. Actually, his wife looked like exactly the type of plain Jane who would marry her gay best friend. (see: Tim Kaine)

All I could think of for final was Old Man and the Sea, and I knew Hemingway was long gone by then. Sorry to see the good doctor go, she seems like a really nice person. The middle woman from New Jersey was interesting in that she popped up with enough answers at random places that it seems she might be a surprise winner in the end.

With Brennan the question is more whether he is now a straight or gay "man"? Will look at Bruce's hands more closely, but if he is T he passes as a super-dorky boy well enough; last night's shirt and tie combo looked like what such a guy would pick out.

BryBry was super fast with the buzzer and knew a LOT! I'm always glad when they get the DJ clue out of the way early in the first game, so they don't spend their time jumping all over looking for it.

Not sure about him being FTM.....but we shall see....

Love the new champ - a few weeks of her would be fine by me. Poor Kiersten ... knew a lot, but filled their recently lacking behemoth quota. Craig needed to learn that what you can wear in predominantly doesn't always work on TV, as the shirt and tie were both too pastel metallic.

I did get a bit of a ping when Kevin knew all about plays. I was a bit shocked that none of them knew about the lady's not for burning though.

Our heavily assimilated South Asian lady was almost a paradigm example of the New York suburbs, including her attire! I like the new champ, although that bare-knuckle baseball with a bunch of middle-aged dudes sounds rather dangerous.

Guess I totally misunderstood the final question as all I could think of was Joseph and the coat of many colors.

Canadian here. Our beloved coffee shop started by a former Toronto Maple Leaf, Tim Horton, became a national chain known by the name Tim Horton's. Notice the possessive. First "store" was on Ottawa Street in Hamilton; forget what year but it was mid-60's.

So, when the girl in the middle replied to the clue, which happened to be in some "Getting Possessive" category, she said: "Who is Tim Horton?". I was sure she would be deemed incorrect by this season's picky judges. Even figured when Alex made the correction before Final that they would penalize her, but I was wrong.

Judging panel, and Alex, are not being consistent these days.

It seems like they've had to adjust the scores a lot lately when they reconsider some of the answers. It throws off the whole game! If a question can have multiple correct answers, it's a bad question for this format. The contestants might have chosen other categories and may have lost the potential to find a daily double. Make a decision on the answer and that's it!

I think the defect on Marty's (champ) nose is maybe the result of a skin cancer excision. I've seen a few of these on people. He might have had a lousy surgeon or an especially large growth. I find his personality unappealing, but he is quick on the buzzer (esp for someone who looks to be pushing 60) and has broad knowledge.

In the J.M. Barrie book, it was called "Neverland" not Never Never Land. I read it numerous times as a child. But apparently both are correct, since it was called Never Never Land in the stage play, which actually predated the novel (I just found out). I imagine they would have accepted either answer.
