I'm glad that so many of you are enjoying the run that James is having, but for me he has completely destroyed the game. I have loved Jeopardy for so many years (starting in the Art Fleming days) and now I just feel disappointment as the two brave souls stand there trying to participate to no avail. I don't like how Alex is fawning over him and telling the other two "good luck" like he knows they won't be a challenge to James.
What I've always loved about Jeopardy is the range of ordinary people with interesting stories who are eager to test their knowledge. I'm one of those who like the questions taken from the top down so you get a flow to the answers (as Alex often suggests). James has made it where I can't always get the question read before he jumps in. His attitude about the money seems awfully cavalier to me, but I'm not a gambler in any sense so I don't understand.
Other than that, I just find him a little bit of a show-off and way too proud of himself. Has anyone noticed they now call him a sports commentator, not a gambler?
Sorry for such a long post, but I miss my show. I'm thinking of our Teabax also. How long will the wait be to film those episodes?
