The game show does feel half decent if you ask me. It has become one of those classic game shows that just went on the be bigger than life without warning, ut it did get boring sometimes, I`ll tell the haters that.
I was only listening with one ear, but I think your Final Jeopardy Question on the 8.8.13 episode was something like "In what national song does the pronoun change?" The accepted correct answer was "God Save the Queen/King" Since when are queen and king pronouns. The current champion was understandably unable to answer the question. How is this going to be rectified?
It is terrible that your show rejects an answer because of a spelling mistake. If you can understand the answer, and it is correct, then this is all that counts. Spelling is a separate skill from factual recall; it is controlled in a separate area of the brain, and has a strong, visual memory component; but it is poorly correlated with overall intelligence. Some people like dyslexics may never be able to spell well, but may otherwise be quite gifted/ intelligent/ knowledgeable. Your show is to have participants compete for excellence in recall, not in their ability to spell otherwise your show will deteriorate into a boring spelling bee. It is unfair particularly to children. Do you remember the kid who missed Emancipation Proclamation? He will never go on a show again, nor will any kid who isn't sure of his spelling. Shame on you.
The main problem I have with this show: the judges. They nitpick some contestants and then let others slide.
The issue of pronunciation: If you make a long "a" instead of a short "a," sometimes they say the answer is wrong.
Pluralization: I understand this sometimes, like when the category limits the number of letters in the correct response or adhering to book titles. But usually, they just nitpick with the addition of "s."
Memorable mess ups:
to an Aesop fable question a woman replied, "What is 'The Turtle and the Hare'" and they gave it to her. No! It's "The Tortoise and the Hare"
some question about a camera lens that uses "these three primary colors": "What are red, blue, and yellow?" dubbed incorrect. The correct answer: "Red, blue, and green." Green is a secondary color! The question set up the wrong response! The guy should have received credit.
a question about the title of Mercury/Hermes' staff and the symbol for medicine: no one pronounced "Caduceus" correctly, but again the question is wrong. The U.S. symbol of medicine is inaccurate. Caduceus with two snakes is exclusive to Hermes; the rod of Asclepius is the symbol of medicine with only one snake.
Jeopardy! is practically perfect in every way. There's a reason for this show's extraordinary run and dedicated fan base.
The premise is easy enough to understand even if you've never seen the show before. The rapid fire answers and questions broken only by the occasional Daily Double draws you in. When Alex reads a clue, you want to shout the response before the contestant does, even if you are home alone.
Alex Trebek is an excellent host. Smart and in total control, smoothly reading the many clues, rarely if ever stumbling over an obscure pronunciation or accent, yet not above acting goofy from time to time.
The best thing about Jeopardy! is that it is one of the few places on TV where intelligence is not only expected, but celebrated. Your average Jeopardy! contestant is likely to be a librarian, a graduate student or an engineer. I love rule change years back allowing a champion to remain on the show until they are defeated.
When I moved to Houston, I was sad because Jeopardy! is scheduled at 11:30. The thought of not being able to watch this one show convinced me to get a DVR. It's that good.
It has great questions, and it also opens the show to kids, teens, and college students. It is a game show that everyone will enjoy, your children, dogs, cats, fathers, mothers, grandmothers, grandfathers, fish, bananas, and you. This game show also has been on many game consoles. I don't know anybody who doesn't like a game show as simple as jeopardy. Even If You're behind in this game, a daily double could bring you in the lead. Player 1 Player 2 Player 3 2,800 4,400 7,200 Daily Double 5,600 As I said before, this is a very simple (With Challenging Questions) that everyone will love.
This is probablly my favorite game show at the moment. I like the concept of this show of how people answer questions and move up the ranks of the game each week (or episode whatever.) Another thing I like (which is also the main "make it or break it" factor for me) are the questions. I like how diverse they are each episode, like some questions will be about historical happenings and others will be about gardening and others will be about foreign foods, and I usually learn a couple things each time I watch it. If nothing else is on besides this, don't hesitate to watch. 10/10 A+
I like the concept of people picking categories and the amount of money, I like the daily doubles, final Jeopardy, etc. I think this is the best game show on TV and I think it is clever. Some of the contestants that become champions I do not like, but overall I think this is a great show. It's fun to keep track of how many you have gotten right. When I was younger I really wanted to be on it someday. Anyways, this is my favorite game show on TV, and as such, my overall grade is an A+. Perfect
Three words, this... show...sucks! Honestly this show should be for adults because of there high attention spand. The show is so quite which makes it feel boring and pathetic. Mabey if they put background music to cover the quiteness it won't be so bad. But, still this definiatly an adult show.
It's one of the best game shows ever and It's really better than that very dreadful Nickelodeon GUTS.But it's not better that Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.It askes some questions that are kind of easy and I love the Movie Questions.The Movie Quetions are like so easy,but some of them are pretty hard to figure out.Some of the questions are like so hard and some of them are so easy.This is really one of the best game shows ever made and it's better than some of the worst game shows ever made and some of the good ones excpet for Who Wants To Be A Millonaire.
What can I say about this show that hasn't already been said? Jeopardy! loved throughout the country and loved by people of all ages above 6th grade. This game show I try never to miss. Keeping score against the competitors on the show as well as getting together with family and friends to compete as the show is airing are great times. In my personal opinion, Alex Trebek looks as if he hasn't aged in the past 15 years or so - but, more importantly, Jeopardy! would not be Jeopardy! without him as the host. You would also think the questions to the show would have become redundant over all of these years - but this show is as fresh as ever.
I love everything about Jeopardy. Alex Trebek is so cheesy and serious that he is downright hilarious. Sometimes he is really kind of mean! Obviously, my favorite weeks are celebrity weeks - those people are dumb - and college weeks. I just love it! Even when the show makes me feel like an idiot because I don't know even a handful of answers, it is still fun to watch. My husband and I kind of compete against each other. It gets a little tense! I hope that this show stays on the air for quite a while. It is a good family show.
What can I say? It's just a fabulous show that's fun to watch.
I was not always a big fan of the show, but just recently, I chose to start watching it regularly and I'm glad I made that choice. In a way, Jeopardy! is a show that can make a person feel not-so-bright and yet a genius at the same time - feeling like a Harvard graduate after correctly responding or being embarrassed that you went to a public school for not knowing one of the clues. That is what makes the show so fun - seeing how much you do know.
But with that said, it doesn't prove if you're "smart" or not. It's a show about how much information in various categories you are familiar with. A great deal of the clues are practically "useless" knowledge. But, that's okay. The people on the show are no better than you or me; they just may have a higher interest in knowing all sorts of data.
Still, the show is a lot of fun. The host, Alex Trebek, is a wonderful icon for Jeopardy!. His demeanor fits perfectly for the whole image that surrounds the Jeopardy! name-brand. For some, me being one, Jeopardy! inspires people to learn new things. That's why I enjoy the show so much.
If you haven't seen a game, I encourage you to watch at least one show. You might even find yourself becoming enthralled!
OMG!!! I would soooo do Alex Trebeck! He is so hot with his knowlege. I bet that he should know a few things about me, if you know what I mean ;). Man he is almost as hot as the purple teletubbie. I would soooooo have a threesome with them. If only Alex was single. I would so steal him from his wife. After all I am one sexy dude. He would push me onto te bed, rip off my blouse and skirt, and do me up god knows where. Ooooohhhhhh yeeeeeah... Any way this is a really good show. Bye now ;).
Jeopardy! premiered on March 1, 1964. Alex Trebek started hosting the game-show in 1984. In my opinion, this is one of the best game-shows in the business. It's a show that I give a perfect 10. The questions are difficult, but they are still very educational. The popular game-show has had kids and adults play. Since 1984, Johnny Gilbert has been the announcer. Former announcers have been John Harlan and Don Pardo. Before Alex Trebek hosted Jeopardy!, Art Fleming hosted it from 1964 until in 1975 when he wanted to do a radio talk-show. Jeopardy! is a show for kids and adults to watch. I hope Jeopardy! can stay on the network for many more episodes.
Jeopardy is a game show for all ages. You'll learn so many things you never known before. Or if you think you got the bronze then play along to at home and answer as much questions as you can. Alex does a great job as host I dont see anyone who could take his spot. The game itself is well skilled range. Particularly I like questions about history. Oh and not to mention the show has pop culture references that will make you laugh. You can win lots of money on here like that other guy who had like 2million or something.
We played games like this at school, to help us do well on tests mostly. But the hard thing about it is the categories and the answers to every one, and the most frustrating thing I dislike about it is you lose money every time you give an incorrect response. And what's even worse is that you won't get to play Final Jeopardy if you end with a negative score. The best champion I can ever imagine is Ken Jennings, with over $3 million and 75 days as a contestant. It's a good thing they eliminated the winnings limit, or else it would've never happened.
a great game show and one of my personal favorites. it is fun to play along at home and try to answer the questions before the people on the show. great if you want to learn a ton of random and very interesting facts. it is fun to watch and see how much you know, and it is even funner when you have a couple of people to watch and guess along with. the categories vary from anything about music to politics and history to books and science. there is a subject for everyone, and the show makes learning a lot funner.
This was one of those shows that I watched during my childhood, got lost somehow, then I just started to get to watch again. It is still exciting and informative, and I try to watch out for the show whenever it airs. It does get frustrating sometimes when you can't answer much of the questions, but it is still entertaining (at least for me). What I like the most is when the game comes down to the final jeopardy, and its very critical what amount you bid. Some games are won and lost in this way.
Overall, still a good show, and I hope it continues for a long time. :D
This show is absolutly one of my faves. As a host, Alex Trebeck does a very great show. Not only giving out questions but adding a little humor in the mix. And they choose the right topic to question on. And teen week rocks. This show is gonna last in so many memories.
I have been watching Jeopardy for the last few years, and I really enjoy watching it. Occasionally, I get some of the answers to the challenging questions that appear. Sometimes I learn a little from watching the episodes every weekday. The rest of my family watches the show, and they also learn a few things, whether it be about history, mathematics, science, or civics. The show is also entertaining, with host Alex Trebek and creator Merv Griffin, who also created the famous Wheel of Fortune. I would recommend this show to anyone who would like to learn new things every day.
So I like this show better than Wheel of fortune even tho I'm to good when it comes to that show I guess every puzzle. On a scale of 1 to 7000 I rate this show 6863. Ken Jennings the best Jeopardy champion of all time he won over two million dollars he stared of the first episode of 1 vs. 100.
