Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

Recommended Posts

3/5 this week.  My third 3 in a row (the previous weeks had asterisks).  Do I get a GFY for that?

4/5 this week, much better than all the 2/5's I've been getting.  I did not come up with Regis Philbin.

Yes, you do! So: Go ... I mean, Good For You.

@peeayebee, I am missing your last week's total, Week 18. Repost for me, please? And thank you.

What is "Good For You" in French?

Week 20: 3/5 (0 asterisk)   Overall: 62/100 (6 asterisk).  Wondering....since it's week 20 & overall is, therefore, out of 100 (so the math is easy), how is everyone doing so far? I'm at 62%. I've had good weeks (although only one 5/5) and bad weeks (nothing below a 2/5 though), but overall I tend to hover in the 62-66 range. Anyone else care to share?

Bad week for me again -- 2/5.

I'm missing your last week's total, Week 19. I have your Weeks 18 and 20 both as 2. Let me know if this is correct.

WEEK 20 — ONE asterisk  
 * 96. Broadway Musicals. Premiering in 2005, its story is divided into spring, summer, fall, & winter, each narrated by one of the 4 male leads.  *
97. Comic Strip Title Characters. These 2 were named for a European “theologian who believed in predestination” & a “philosopher with a dim view of human nature.”
98. 20th Century Literature. The writing of this novel, the author’s first with no Canadian setting, appropriately began in 1984.
99. U.K. Prime Ministers. He was the first U.K. Prime Minister born after Elizabeth II became queen.
100. Law Enforcement History. This U.S. group was formed to protect settlers in an area that had recently gained independence from Spain.

I would guess I'm at the bottom. I don't have my count in front of me but I'm probably well under 40%.

Very interesting... (with my best Arte Johnson imitation - oh, you're probably too young to remember that! ;-)

Overall - 68/100 with 9 asterisks.  Only two perfect weeks, but at least I never had a total wipeout or a single correct answer week!

Week 19 was also 2/5.  I could have sworn I posted!

You are caught up now. Perhaps you were still on the Antarctic clock for a few days? (I'd like to borrow that excuse if you don't mind.)

I think both of us can use it, no problem!  I might be wearing it out, though...

Not bad, 3/5 this week. Tuesday was such an instaget, I knew it before Alex was done reading the clue. Made me feel kind of smart, until after the music was done and he said how he'd never seen three people write so quickly! Oh well...

Week 20: 2 for 5, 1*.

Overall: 53/100, 53%.  

I haven't been keeping track of asterisks.

5/5, *!!!! What a great feeling! Tony Blair almost stumped me, but I remembered that he was so young when elected just in time.

Week 1/5

Season 44/100

My goal for the season was 50%, but I see it drifting away. Unless they start hitting me with weeks of categories like Sports, Television, Comics, Rock Music, and Valerie Bertinelli, I'm probably screwed.

I haven't calculated my score percentage but I don't think it's all that good.

I am hoping for 1960's rock and roll, Agatha Christie novels and famous women aviators of the 1930's.

So, on average, I'm average.

Actually, you are above average. Take that!

Hope you had a good time in Detroit. (Somehow, that's so odd to type, a "good time in Detroit.") I looked for you in the audience as I watched the skating on tv. Did you see me waving to you?

(Hello, your majesty! I hope you were at the ice dance and saw Manta/Johnson’s Sweet Dreams skate—I went back and rewatched that one several times before finally deleting it from my DVR.)

Of course I did, @saber5055, didn't you see me wave back? Actually, I go to these competitions with a number of other skating fans and we always have seats in the first three rows. We wear turquoise scarves so people can find us on TV. I was the gray haired old lady on the aisle of the third row. And I was impressed by how downtown Detroit has improved since the last time I was there. It has lots of great restaurants and the Motown Museum is fantastic. The skating was great too, so I did have a good time, at least until I got stuck in the Detroit airport for five hours on Monday.

I did see Manta/Johnson's Sweet Dreams free skate, @Sharpie66. They repeated it at the Skating Spectacular (the only performance not done by a medal winner), so I hope NBC will show it when they broadcast the Spectacular on February 16. It was very well received.
