    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    I was away for a (long) weekend, and just caught up to Friday, finally! 4/5 with 1*

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I was yelling Rhodes. With "scholar" in quotations marks, it seemed so obvious to me! I was disappointed they didn't finish My Songs, too. I thought tornado was a strange guess. The question was about the Pacific ocean! I thought typhoon and tsunami right away, but I don't know which I would have gone with in a game.

    Ooh, great question. I would guess yes, but he'd be the butt of jokes for a looong time! I knew 13 and 21, but blanked on religion. Seems like I should have known it, in retrospect. I'm taking it personally that they didn't get Nova Scotia... but I have no idea how well-known Peggy's Cove is outside of Canada (or even outside NS). Have any of the non-Canadians here heard of it? Fun tournament, but I will be happy to see regular games again.

    1, with * I feel like I could have come up with Rembrandt if I hadn't read/heard the clue wrong. I was trying to come up with an artist who was born in the Alps. Pay attention, Fex!

    Yes, Fox Trot the comic. I always thought the dance and the NATO alphabet for 'f' were just one word. Now I'm wondering if there's another use I don't know about! One of the kids in Fox Trot has a pet iguana, and sometimes there are fantasy sequences or dreams where it is a dinosaur. The iguana is frequently used to torment the older sister, of course. My family has a bunch of Fox Trot books at the cottage.

    Did anyone else know iguanodon from Fox Trot? Just me? I was very surprised no one got Five and Dime, especially after someone guessed Dime Store.

    I really liked seeing the strategizing, and that there was lots of time for the piano playing in the clues. No risk of not clearing the board! I also enjoy the good-natured trash talking. I was cautiously optimistic that this tournament could be fun, and so far I'm happy. I always like seeing smart, impressive, players. And I'll be even happier when there's an entire game in an episode!

    Flemish! Thank you. You're right, there were a few surprising ts, but Flemish really stood out to me. The Netherlands doesn't have that many borders!

    My brain kind of simultaneously said Isaac Asimov, Jules Verne, and HG Wells, then I ruled out the first two (too young, too French). There was a surprising TS, which I forgot the instant I deleted the episode from my DVR... sigh.

    3/5, two asterisks! I didn't have a clue for Brownsville, but I should have gotten Bermuda

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    I finally got caught up on all the Jeopardy on my DVR yesterday... when the forum was down! So, 3/5 last week and this week. At least I'm consistent. No asterisk

    5/5, *!!!! What a great feeling! Tony Blair almost stumped me, but I remembered that he was so young when elected just in time.

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    2/5 this week. No asterisk. I guessed Jeff Probst last night, but didn't really think it was right. Trying to think back to 2000.... a number one network show with a host? Survivor was all I could come up with. Forgot all about Millionaire!
