    At first I thought it was Takeshi Kaga, the Chairman from Iron Chef, but it turns out to be a Japanese military guy from the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer. The movie apparently features many of the classic monsters, like Mothra, Rodan and Gidorah and this guy suggests that humans should just let them fight it out.

    I figured James would make it over a million tonight, but it was still amazing to see. Claudia and Kevin were both good players and on any other night, either of them could easily have won. FJ was easy-peasy.

    I know, right? It feels like one of those finales where the producers didn't know if they would get another season, so they wrapped it up to be satisfying if it did turn out to be the last. Not that I would call leaving fans sobbing and shouting "nooooo" at the television a satisfying ending, but it did feel like a farewell. Magic is back, Alice will run the library, Julia got magic again and is with Penny, and Eliot and Margo are back to save Filory again. Unlike last season, which clearly ended with a set-up for this one, this episode felt very much like a conclusion. I love this show. Sniff.

    I said that, too. Definitely the glass armonica. I've heard one played. They're amazing and eerie. Kind of like a cross between a singing saw and a theremin. Jaem's big bets make me nervous, but the runaway games do make FJ less exciting.

    I wondered whether or not Alex essentially egged him on to do it, by stopping to explain James's "all in" gesture before the wager. If he hadn't made it up and won anyway, it would sort of been Alex's fault.

    I went with James's initial guess of D-Day. I figured that was probably wrong, but couldn't think of anything else.

    He does look a bit like an Asian version of Tom Ellis. (Based on articles about him, it seems like his mom is Japanese.)

    Not that every smart person has to be making a contribution to society, but him being a professional gambler feels like a waste of his intellect. He doesn't have to be a brain surgeon, but I'll bet (pun intended) that he could do very well on Wall Street.

    Holy forking shirtballs! At first I thought James only wagered 3,800, not 38,000. That was Austin's old 77,000 one-day record he beat, right? Talk about a quantum leap! (Which I did not get, embarrasingly enough.) I felt sorry for the other contestants. James is a machine. Edited to say that it was Roger Craig's one-day record, which has stood since 2010. I think it'll be a long time before anyone beat 110,000.

    Depite his slight air of douchiness, I always like a gutsy bettor, which he is. And I agree, I don't mind him taking the high scoring clues off the board first - it's a good strategy if you're smart and can get them without getting a feel for the category first. I prefer that to board hopping, looking for DDs. I did get Berlin, but it was strictly a guess, as I couldn't think of the other capital to match it. The only other 6 letter capital I could think of was London, which was obviously wrong, so I went for Berlin.

    I said Pike for FJ. At least there was someone in history named Pike. He got a peak named after him. Yeah, that body language category wasn't worthy of Double Jeopardy. More like Toddler Jeopardy.

    I got Moonlight and I knew there was another "something-light" movie, but all I could come up with was Searchlight.

    Yes, plus you missed being asked to identify a picture of Jack Nicklaus, where the clue even mentioned his famous nickname, the Golden Bear. I think they must have dumbed down the clues to avoid the usual sports category embarrassment.

    Hooray for the saxophone! My son has been playing it for the last 3 years, so I knew it was a recently invented instrument. One of the advantages of it being a newer instrument is that it's relatively easy to learn the fingering for the notes. Admittedly, I did think of Sousa first, but he definitely wasn't French.
