    Years before that she played Miri in the original Star Trek first-season episode of the same name. Originally aired on 27 October 1966.

    I knew that answer without the extra radiator-caps hint. Less famously, perhaps, it was also the escape ship for the Coneheads once upon a time in SNL land.

    I think Emma looks like Rachel Maddow much more than Vicki Lawrence. Short of the hairstyle I don't think she looks like Lawrence at all. And one of these "mod" wigs would make anyone look like Emma. In fact, I wondered for a while whether she was actually wearing a wig. This is her exact hairstyle. Emma was a very good Jeopardy! champ for a couple of days. My big beef with her, however, is not winning that 3rd game. She was just shy of $100,000 and the person currently on the bottom of the list for the Tournament of Champions (according to the Jeopardy website) absolutely 100% NEEDS TO BE BUMPED OFF THE LIST. Emma was perfectly positioned to do it. But no. Now I have to hope we see another $100,000 winner before the season ends.

    What sort of person does something like this? What lowlifes. I really think anti-"social media" encourages this behavior. So glad I don't do Twatter or any of the rest of it. It has made restaurants noticeably quieter, though, so it has at least that one saving grace.

    That's pretty explosive stuff if true. Someone will find out. Count me among those who think he probably knew the day it happened. An entire studio audience witnessed the loss on March 12 and kept quiet about it for almost 3 months. Good on them.

    I didn't know that. My mother has a friend Mary whose husband;s name is Kit. I have to ask if his full first name is Charles.

    Amen to that. Absolutely. KJ could have kept his consecutive-games-won title and I would have been satisfied with James holding the top-dollar record. I thought I heard Alex's voice breaking a little. The guy's like Jeopardy family now. And now KJ gets to gloat about his record remaining intact. He wrote some insulting tweets back at the time of the all-star tournament. I don't like Ken Jennings anymore. I think he's a dick. I would have told off anyone who did that to me and call them mean names right there in the store. Classless. I bet they have to get the brainpower shows on before they start drinkin'.

    I'm down with this. I didn't watch the Teachers Tournament because I didn't like the sponsor. 😬

    I'm incredibly bummed out right now. How could James get to within 1 game of topping KJ's regular-season winnings record and blow it?!?!? Not looking forward to the conspiracy theories that will surely follow now. Mine is (not really) that James lost on purpose. Congrats to the new champ, by all means, but a huge CONGRATULATIONS to James. Jeopardy James forever.

    Good on you, TEEBAX. I did not get FJ. You accomplished something I can only aspire to. Nice little shoutout to your students, too. They are extremely fortunate to have you as a teacher.

    They're so cheap they squeak. Still, $2,000 and $1,000 prizes beat the years when those prizes were along the lines of "The Guitar" and "The Olympic Pin Set".

    That crossed my mind as well. He did extremely well and on any other day without James as a competitor his achievment would have been notable, I think.

    What are... Jeopardy! experiences?

    I'm also getting excited and ready to root for @teebax next week! Does anyone from the show mention the history of the 40 Acres backlot where the studio is located? It has a long and storied history before they knocked it all down for the industrial park that seems to be there now. In addition to other businesses, I think Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen studio is right in that same area. The 40 Acres backlot was where many old movie and TV exteriors were shot. It was Skull Island in King Kong. It was the site of Gone With The Wind's Tara plantation. It was Mayberry in The Andy Griffith Show, scenes from Batman, Star Trek, Gomer Pyle USMC, Hogan's Heroes, and more were filmed there. In this picture, looking west, that's Jefferson Blvd running on the left alongside Ballona Creek, and Higuera St. running vertically on the right side of the photo. There are a lot more pictures on the site I linked above. If I ever went on Jeopardy! and was in Culver City I'd be geeking out over the history of the lot itself as a Hollywood legend. Good luck next week, @teebax (even though the results are pre-ordained at this time). Your students are extremely fortunate to have a teacher like you.

    Another who's glad they're clamping down on the shoutouts. Honestly, they probably did James a favor since he's said he's running out of names! Now he doesn't have to worry about it anymore.

    Jeopardy! Test: Have You Taken It?

    I didn't do as well tonight as I did a few weeks ago. Some brain farts and some of the questions were really tough. I got all the easy ones, at least! Between the two tests I think the questions are much harder than what you typically see on the show. Maybe just grasping at straws to make myself feel better. So I didn't get all of the easy ones. Most embarrassing miss: What state lies directly east of Wisconsin? Complete blank. I swear Illinois and Minnesota were the only words I could think of. I will wear sackcloth and ashes for the rest of the month.
