Really good game.....no one was a drag on the tempo!
Eric!!!! Wouldn't mind if he stayed around awhile. FJ was difficult for me.....knew it when I heard it. A couple of categories were stretching it.....
Is everyone going to try to be "on" now? Is Austin the new benchmark?
|by Anonymous||reply 4||11/20/2017|
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.
|by Anonymous||reply 5||11/20/2017|
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.

What's the difference between that and only writing a person's last name?

I think when it's a title, it has to be exact. You couldn't say "Gone with the W" and been correct; or Mona L for the DaVinci painting. Perhaps they instruct the players on this point beforehand? I thought Wilbur may just have run out of time.

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.

Agree Wilbur was cheated. They knew that he had enough of the correct answer to count....

I mentioned I was good at geography, so I did get final. I also knew Nizhny Novgorod, but realistically figured that was rather a tough question.
I wrote off old man Hilary at first, but he did better than I had expected him to. The chorus lady struck me as being very much down with the homos, so I wouldn't have minded her winning either.

Dimples Matt started strong and then faded in the stretch. Kim had a mean teacher face.
It was a good game.....it seemed like Kyle was fading and he was not on track during the first round, but he picked up quickly in the DJ round.
The last few days, the interviews have been strangely edited - as if there was too much NOTHING said or that the producers were trying to salvage something from pieces of conversation.... FJ was a mystery to me, I thought of Napoleon because of the years....but nothing came to me....
I wonder what color sweater and tie Kyle will wear tonight?

All I could think of for yesterday's final was the Congress of Berlin. I was traveling so just watched it now via YouTube. All three of the interviews were indeed strangely flat.

I'll start with Alex wearing pullups. A joke (I didn't get) or an admission? Either way - oy!
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. Besides that, there is just something "off" in general there.
Final was obvious.
|by Anonymous||reply 117||12/15/2017|
I was kind of hoping Kiersten would get the "Hoss" answer since she looked like him. This was a great even game with some interesting categories.
Yes FJ was pretty obvious.....too bad Craig lost so much on his DJ wagers. Denise did a great job in the second round!
It will be interesting to see how long she stays around.

As I have mentioned many times, I am a huge dork fan myself, but wasn't as smitten with Ben as I might have been. Something about him just struck me as being a very boring person. That having been said, tonight was a real tragedy for me as I took a true dislike to the new champ right away. Outgoing champ is one of the classiest I can remember in a long time.
As for commercials, they've plugged other stuff before, but it was the running characters across the screen perhaps that made it highlighted as an endorsement.

I can't stand how Alex fake acts like he doesn't know what the contestants put as their answers and wagers to Final Jeopardy just before revealing the results. "Oh I can tell by the look on Johnny's face he's not happy!" I know it happens every single show, but it's a pet peeve of mine.

Did my ears play tricks on me or did Johnny say "dollarS" last night when introducing the champ? I thought I heard it, but I'm not sure.
Yes, sorry to lose Denise. She was very good and had some class. New champ (Kate?) - seems like a very determined broad with a strong jaw! Ben just couldn't make any correct guesses.....although I thought they were buttercups, too.
FJ was easy if you thought a moment.......GUERNICA? That was pretty funny. I thought at first it was going to be about ME!

Final was a giveaway for me, I knew it immediately. Justin's tie was indeed distracting. I didn't find him particularly hot, and I'm the one who has a soft spot for dorks.

I thought final was incredibly easy, so I'm really stunned that they all had such difficulty with it.
When the champ mentioned his former employer, I was left wondering whether he had been fired? I get the feeling that his personal life is anything but vanilla. New champ doesn't know quite a bit, so I wouldn't exactly say it's on her part. But, a little of her does go a long way. Left wondering whether Olev's nickname is Dimples?
None of them knew that Zanzibar is part of Tanzania? I'm such a crack biblical student that I was getting Philistines mixed up with Pharasees!

Not an fan of New Champ, who seems like a parody character to me; loved Alex's query if those in the red ended up paying her dad. Yuppies/Millennials, etc. here in Seattle are avid Sounders fans; soccer is a "thing" as they say.
The decision as to whether or not an answer is close enough to qualify seems to depend on how many drinks the judges have had at that day's lunch almost?

'Jeopardy' on hold while Alex Trebek recovers from brain surgery
BURBANK, Calif. (WLS) -- Tapings of "Jeopardy" have been put on hold while host Alex Trebek recuperates from surgery.
Trebek, 77, underwent surgery in December after he hit his head during a fall, which caused some bleeding outside the brain.
The surgery was successful. Trebek is expected to make a full recovery.
"Jeopardy" tapings are expected to resume in mid-January.

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.

And yes, FJ seemed obvious to me as well. Another night of Rachel....she's smart. But so many clues once again left on the board or not even guessed at!

Once again, I knew just about all of the answers that none of them got, including final. I had happened to call my mom after she saw the show on the East Coast, but before I saw it, and she had warned me that final was yet another giveaway as far as she was concerned. The fact that none of them got it was really, really bad.
R376 - I don't think Marilyn Horne is exactly a household name, but I know who she is, so got the clue immediately myself.
The guy was good-looking, but not anything to get all excited about. I was wondering what kind of literary agent exactly Rosie worked as. The champ looked very different in her long sleeve top rather than one of those frocks she normally wears. She looked a bit T to me at first.

I was able to guess final Jeopardy, but only because I'm a big Van Gogh fan and have been seeing a lot of stuff about him lately. The category name was too broad for most people.

Much of what we know about Vincent VG comes from the letters that he wrote to his brother Theo. Theo provided emotional and financial support to his brother.

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.

So annoying Frank the comic turned out to be kind of a dumb bell....but he never gave up his schtick!
Rob the Latin dancer has potential. We shall see.
FJ was one that made you think..... Frank was devastated whenever someone else got a Double Jeopardy clue - he was obviously thinking of doing an Austin and building up a big lead by wagering. Hey, Frank, you have to know the answer in order to get the money. I have to give it to Austin that he usually had the right response.

Rob still pings to me but I'll just let it go. Yes, there is some wishful thinking since he seems a real hunk to me. Vinay on the other hand was perhaps the prettiest contestant I've seen in a long time on the show. The lady would have been an interesting win, had both of them messed up Final. I had no idea, guessing Bedlam.

Rob pings to me too. He's not my type at all but he has a genuinely engaging smile and an easy, all business manner during the show. His macarena moment was indeed charming. I was surprised at what looked like his momentarily angry reaction to his FJ 'samurai' miss. No doubt he was angry at himself. but it suggests that he's a man who's wound a bit tighter than he lets on.

I think they'd have to accept "Neverland," atho they've been weirdly strict on some things lately.

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. I did remember the babies falling out of prams, even though my childhood was a long time ago, so the answer came easily to me. My only problem with Rob is his very small eyes, which bother me for some reason. But his personality is bearable enough.

R515 - films are definitely not my strong suit, but that was my first thought, too, when the none of them got it. Malta was another answer they should've gotten. I suppose Jewish Rob really doesn't know much about the New Testament, if he thought there was a reference to Gibraltar in it. Final seemed easy, but I don't know is if I would call it exactly a giveaway.
Maybe Florence happened to get a lot of the right questions on the sample test? I felt from her first appearance that she was far too severe. I liked Kate a lot, wouldn't mind if she had won.
For some reason, I get the impression Rob's wife's family is very wealthy, similar to the Disney heir guy they had on a couple of years back. I was fixated during the show on his eyes, after all the comments you folks made.

Another night, another win for Rob. I was happy as I felt that he deserves to go on to the Tournament of Champions. However, I would have been equally happy with Damien making it as well as he seems like a nice guy and is quite knowledgeable. John the Bear seem to know the gay answers to me.
Rob's blind guessing of Thanksgiving Day Parade for an event specified as March was rather embarrassing, so I had no problem with Alex chiding him for it. I was somewhat surprised that none of them got Urdu. Final seems very easy to me.
I know this sounds very petty, and weird, but Rob's double breasted shirt was distracting.

I don't know if I'm more annoyed with the everyday 'adjustment of scores,' or all of the points left on the board because Alex spends so much time yammering during the round. Whether he's fawning over a champ, making an embarrassing attempt at humor, or speaking with a stereotypical foreign accent -- there are almost always several spaces left on the board. Especially when he notes there's only a minute left, and then just wastes the seconds and potential points by interjecting nonsense. Both of these things are game changers!
I don't know, I'm still bitter about them accepting the use of punctuation outside of the end quotation mark, as in, "Blah blah blah". It's just wrong, as it has been for centuries!

R552, and all the others commenting on Jonah's perceived disgust.
