    It’s so awfully good to get back to a regular season, although the re-broadcasts over the break were enjoyable to see again. Mr. Trebek can say anything at any time, in my book. He is one of the most repected people in North America, if not the world. I was surprised at the number of “generational” questions, such as Kinescope, Dylan Thomas, and Frances Perkins. A couple of questions reflect how little Americans know about Asia, such as Phuket (which I thought was world famous), and kanji 漢字 (or Hànzì in Mandarin), used by a whole lot of people.

    Thanks for the website. I was glad to discover you’all, since I’m a big Jeopardy fan. Love the show but after all these years Alex’s interview still makes me uncomfortable. For one thing, much of the interview is about him. And he questions them speaking slowly and deliberately, like he is talking to a child. Is it just me that the interview is often uncomfortable ?

      Hi, Alan. Thanks for visiting. As far as the interviews go, they are just a regular part of the show to me. As for Alex talking about himself, I really think he’s entitled after all this time. I imagine if I was at the airport leaving town and Alex Trebek was arriving in my town and he stopped and asked me a question and told me something about himself, it would be an experience I would probably tell to a lot of people. It’s probably like that for the contestants, only better, because they were actually competing on the show when they had their moment to converse with Alex.

    New opening graphics and a new sound when putting the dollar figures into the screens, and what look to be new graphics for Double J! and regular J!. 38/59 here.

    Well $21,100 is a low start to the season, but a win is a win. The Star Wars category sounds interesting.

    About the Wrong Answers: Well I could see how the Philippines would come up seeing as the clue mentioned an island. The Philippines was also hit by a natural disaster in 2004.

    Cannot wait to see the new graphics. Jeopardy usually outdoes itself each season, and hopefully Season 33 is no exception.

    I’ll be out on the road tomorrow and Wednesday, so hopefully I don’t miss much, though if I do… that’s what this place is for.
