No matter how you break it up, it's still a lot of messages to read. But also, thanks for the advice, I too like longer pages and I haven't looked at my settings for a long time.This is only page 13. I never understand why people don't set their settings to put the maximum number of posts per page (50).
Oh come now; it's completely different. The display board uses modern flat-screen technology instead of an array of CRT bottles, the prizes have been adjusted for inflation, and the host is now an old guy with grey hair.I hadn't watched Jeopardy in years, although I always enjoyed it. When I saw this thread, I decided to record a few episodes, since there's not much on right now. As someone mentioned, with FFing you can watch pretty quickly. I'm hooked for now, but the thing that amazes me is that it hasn't changed AT ALL in all these years. I love that. No trying to modernize it.
(I didn't read the first 50 pages of the thread--probably this was discussed before.)
My preference would be for spoilers to be within spoiler tags, if you think someone might want to avoid reading it. Just saying.Spoilers below for Thursday's Jeopardy... you've been warned!
In legend, he called all the animals together but only 12 came, including a rat & a dragon
Anyone get this? Rat & dragon, along with "12", immediately led me to the Chinese zodiac. Without a clue as to who in history developed the CZ, I guessed Confucius. Seemed an obvious choice.
It was a triple stumper, with Noah, Merlin, Confucius as the responses. The answer was Buddha.
I don't know the answer, but I would guess he would pay Illinois taxes only, since he is not a resident of California. (When I worked for a New York company I didn't have to pay NY taxes, only CA.)Completely off topic but since taxes were brought up, being an Illinois resident but earning the money in California, I assume he has to pay California taxes, but does he have to pay Illinois too?
Has he ever been catchable in final? Not lately anyway unless he was on one of his first games.
In his second game on 05-Apr-2019 he had only $28,114 going into final, whilst his nearest competitor had $18,800.Nope. It's always been a runaway game.
Nancy Zerg got the answer right and Ken did not, she beat him fair and square. Some days you eat the bear, some days the bear eats you.My DW made the comment about Ken Jennings and how the woman who 'beat' him was defeated the very next day. I had to point out that she didn't actually beat him, he got FJ wrong nd beat himself - otherwise he'd probably still be on it (not really)!
Because the clues are so much easier than regular play yet the teachers don't get them. I am embarrassed for their poor showing. At least with celebrity Jeopardy (which I don't watch either) we don't expect them to be any good.Because you realize how much you don't know?
It's about a year old in regular play but has been in force for tournaments for a long time. Before that, in regular play both contestants came back. But obviously in tournaments ties can't be accepted.I think I'm repeating myself, but is the tie breaker new? Last 10 years or so?
Since they usually "tape" about two months in advance, one would expect them to now be done with their summer break and back to "taping" episodes. I hope this is not a bad sign.On the last episode of the season, Alex mentioned they'd be airing tournament repeats for 6 weeks. This is week 3, the first week of the teachers' tournament.
That would put new episodes beginning Sept 9th.
I don't know about official terminology, but in the first case Alex usually says "no harm, no foul". In the second case he mutters "idiots!" under his breath.Triple Stumper question:
Is there a difference in terminology for a question that all three contestants ring in, but get wrong, versus one that no one rings in for?
