  1. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    My first 5/5 week. Wahoo!
  2. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    The word play with clear hints at the answers were quite noticeable in the clues this week. The hints really help to find those answers in the deep recesses of your brain if someone doesn't buzz in before you get to them. I live for the music categories. No one got Guns 'n' Roses? Ouch. New champ needs to answer with confidence. The constant shoulder shrug, I'm not sure if this is right routine is going to get old real quick.
  3. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I started the show on a hot streak (first nine or ten in a row) then cooled off. I got X and N.
  4. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I had Scotland and all of the Band-based clues (Motley Crue, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and the Midnight Oil-themed Australia). I knew the Eagles, too, so I was most disappointed in not getting to the final clue. Any way we can find out what it was?
  5. S37.E04 Time to Bring Out the Charmpocalypse

    Random thoughts on episode 4 "Nitwit, Overplay, Won't Last" Not smart, Alec. You won't outwit, outplay, or outlast for long. Soon, you'll just be out. Charmpocalypse? C'mon, Charmageddon would've been the end all. When they got to the tribe swap, some producer realized they had one too many contestants and decided to dredge up Exile Island. That clue looked like it took three minutes to write, and the big blue laced coconut another two minutes.
  6. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I ran the big sports stars and final film role categories and had Philip Seymour Hoffman and the Iceman. I got FJ because I knew Clyde Tombaugh had discovered Pluto, and "Tombaugh" was in the clue. The rest of the words in the clue were like the points on Whose Line Is It Anyway? to me.
  7. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    After a great start (3/3), I had a lousy finish (0/2). 3/5 this week.
  8. S37.E03 I Am Goliath Strong

    Random thoughts on episode 3 "Jeremy Spoke in Camp Today" Jeremy made the ultimate Survivor blunder, rambling on about his backstory. Always the kiss of death. Finally, finally a tribe makes good use of the best part of many episodes, the scuttling crabs. Go crabs! Rocket Nerd and the Mayor of Slamtown are easily the most entertaining competitors this year with goaty-goat Napalm-Natalie in third. Finally, I'm so glad they've gone to the combined reward/immunity challenges. The camp life scenes, when they don't involve crying, are fun. The challenges, on the other hand, are designed by spinning the well-worn Survivor challenge wheel three times for the three recycled challenge stages. And they contain Peachy's awful play-by-play.
  9. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    It may just be me, but I heard the Champ answer "Victoria Secret Santa" and was ruled correct. The answer is actually "Victoria's Secret Santa". As a crossword puzzle fanatic, I was most disappointed at not getting a look at the $1600 and $2000 clues. The first three were easy. I wonder if "Darling Wife" would've also been acceptable. 2/2 on FJs. This could be my week!
  10. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    2/5 (salvaged after going 0/3 to start the week). I guessed Matt Damon on Tuesday, when I should have realized it would be Ben Affleck, since Damon is the far better actor and more likely to have had an acting nomination. Picked Zurich instead of Geneva on Wednesday.
  11. S37.E02 The Chicken Has Flown the Coop

    Random thoughts on episode 2 "Jess Is Not Tipped Off" Rather than showing her post-boot confessional, I would have rather seen Jess giving Peachy the permission slip her mother must have signed to allow her on the show. Clearly many of the women this season went to the Parvati school of charm management. Gabby's purposely coy "Want to play with me?" instantly worked on Christian. None of the alliance names created so far this season come anywhere close to matching Stealth 'R Us and the wacky code names Phillip assigned to his alliance mates. Good times. In addition to the usual, ridiculously over-the-top Tribal Council set, we seem to now have new, even more dramatic Tribal Council music. The ritual of Tribal Council is serious stuff!
  12. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    The final clue in the Weird Al category should have been I Lost on Jeopardy, Weird Al's parody of the Greg Kihn Band song!
  13. The Alexis commercials were both inspired and hilarious. I haven't laughed that hard at a TV show in a long time.
  14. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I had One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Charlotte-Amalie and ran the Weird Al category. I'm not sure if they were looking for singers or artists, which may explain why they accepted "Huey Lewis" without "and the News" and "Joan Jett" without "and the Blackhearts". Speaking of which, the original version of I Love Rock 'n' Roll was actually by the Arrows.
  15. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I had Taft and Vince Vaughn for TS. I guessed Emma on FJ. The stage lights must have really bothered middle guy. The one General Hospital guy broke character when the clue kicked in. That was the best way to deliver it. The others all just reminded me why I ... can't ... ... stand ... ... ... ... soap operas.
