    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Man, I know he's been a pain all day today, but I didn't realize his talent for being annoying was this extensive. (I love my son dearly, it's just been one of those days.) I came so close to running the Andrew Davies category, then I was too slow coming up with George Eliot.

    I was not able to keep score today because my kid kept distracting me. But I know I got scale, profane, rampart, House of Cards. No clue on FJ. So Sam is a 5-day champ and yet they decided to announce the ToC early and give a spot to a 3-day champ. This doesn't make sense.

    I just did an image search and you're right. Although I see the other resemblances that people have mentioned as well. Sam said on Reddit that he has "generic white guy face" so that's why he looks familiar to people.

    I was spoiled for FJ. I might have gotten it from the clue, but we'll never know. I'm liking Sam more and more. He brought the attitude today and backed up the swagger with 2 big DDs and a runaway game. I have a strong suspicion that he's going to lose tomorrow, though. What was the correct response for the clue about Tesla in the Friends category? My satellite feed cut out briefly. My guess is pigeons. If that is right then I got 22/30 on the Jeopardy round, my best in awhile. We won't discuss DJ. TS: Little Lord Fauntleroy, Morgan

    I got Pip, cytoplasm, Schubert, can't remember what else. And FJ was an instaget. They're hyping ToC because of James.

    I'm going to go back to our @teebax and the Teacher Tournament for a minute, because look what clue I just ran across in the archive, from 2011: "The theme song of "Futurama" features chimes, also known as tubular these" The correct response was bells, but see? Chimes should have been ruled correct.

    I never could learn anything with mnemonics, except for King Phyla Called, Ordered Five Green Shirts.

    I just learned that Sam was born in 1990. Dude needs to lose the 'stache, it makes him look 40. I got FJ instantly (because I was NOT 2 years old during the 1992 presidential election), and the TS of pencil, transfiguration, and something else I can't remember.

    I've seen comparisons to Jason Ritter* and to Ethan Hawke. *I might post on Jeopardy forums too much, autocorrect tried to change his name....

    That was a good game! Sorry that Ryan didn't make it to 5 games and a spot in the ToC.

    Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions

    I call shenanigans. Since when do 3-time champs get into the ToC? If Ryan wins today I'm going to be really ticked on his behalf.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I just want to know who's paying for all the meals out! That's a constant source of bewilderment for me with all these people. I didn't expect such a big response to my post about my celebrity crush. As an update, apparently he and I have a mutual FB friend, so FB keeps putting up his hot profile pic on my page under "People You May Know" and suggesting I request him as a friend. It kind of gave me a jolt the first time! But no, I'm not going to try to friend him. That's creepy. I don't mind looking at the cute picture, though!

    All 3 contestants were likable and I would have been fine with anyone winning, except that I want to see Ryan make it to ToC. I also think it's really cool to see couples appear on the show. That would never happen in my family. Mr. Abstract would make a great Pub Quiz teammate, but he has never been a quick reaction kind of guy. Your FJ answer reminds me of one of the answers I had to give on my in-person test. I completely blanked on the actor's name, so I just put "That guy from [name of show redacted]". (They were very adamant about not sharing content of the test, so I'm following rules!)

    Because Ken Jennings handed Brad Rutter a million dollars by doing exactly that in 2014?

    Forgot to mention I ran the "Who's in charge?" category. It happens so rarely I have to pat myself on the back for it.
