    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Me too!! Should have been a gimme for one of the others. And am I remembering this wrong, or was Dostoevsky a TS, too?!!! (now there's a name that needs a mnemonic for spelling). For Gogol I said "Goo- Gol- Go- something" which I don't think I'd have gotten credit for...

    I will accept hot fudge on a sundae. Does Fine? That's so boring! That defeats the purpose of a mnemonic device.

    As far as I am concerned, Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge. I don't actually remember what the clue said, instead. Anyway, I have never liked fudge, so had no problem letting boys have it all.

    I love Before and After categories, so I really liked this game. I don't know how or why I know that Mozart died in 1791, but FJ was an insta-get for that reason. I didn't even notice that the clue mentioned Vienna until afterwards.

    I guessed Gorgon, without really expecting to be right. Woohoo! Nice surprise. The "diva" "prima diva" " prima donna" series of answers was cringeworthy. They must have been mad at themselves afterwards. Alex kind of poked fun at the pronunciation of Ljubljana, but didn't give the correct one. Unless I missed it...?

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    4/5 Didn't stand a chance when I misheard/read/translated into brainwaves 1800s Americans instead of 18th century. Rookie mistake. Would I have gotten it right if I had the right category? I didn't know it, but maybe would have guessed it... we'll never know!

    Yes, I was one of those who said Barrymore, too! I got Wiz Khalifa because my trivia team's name is Quiz Khalifa. I knew glitch, it wasn't a guess, but I have no idea how!! I have no memory to go along with the fact. Maybe it's been on Jeopardy before?

    I agree. I knew Bottom, but at least he had the right play. As did the other guy saying Prospero instead of Ariel. I guess Alex's kids must not have had one. I'm an 80s kid, and we definitely had one. It was awesome. Ridiculous that what was essentially "the country between China and Russia" was a $1000 clue. Those horses were pretty, though!

    4/5 Those Newmans prevented me from getting a perfect week. I never knew Randy was from a famous family.

    Tonight, I guessed Frankenstein when the category was revealed! That's always satisfying.
