    I love Jeopardy. Always have. That that was on there James was insane....

    Sometimes I keep track of my score and win. Of course I'm not there holding a buzzer so who knows if I'd ring in time or find the daily doubles but still.....

    WOW, even my post about it was boring....

    Its just a let down when Jeopardy finishes and Wheel comes on. I will give them props for not trading Vanna in on newer model.

    They run them in reverse order here. Wheel is a warmup for Jeopardy. I do think Jeopardy is one of the smartest things on TV...and yes that is a low bar, I know.

    I hate to admit this, but my otherwise intelligent and insightful wife turns on the court shows (Judge Judy, People's Court) at this time. I absolutely loathe these shows filled with complete idiots. So I just sit and play on Facebook (which isn't much better I know).

    because being PC is important when the job description calls for bland politeness, 80's hair, fixed smile and blending into the background. Kind of a disarming lunatic.

    One of my colleagues was on that, she did very badly. I'm more of a Pointless guy myself. If you want to see stupid then Celebrity Pointless is the show for you.

    There were two basic differences between US and UK quiz shows and both of these rules have been changed now. First there was a maximum limit on the prize which was the equivalent of a small car. Which was why first prize was nearly always a small car ( or speedboat for some reason). Second, they weren't allowed to audition contestants, it had to be a lucky draw. Which was why quiz shows when I was growing up where dominated by toothless pensioners who were completely overwhelmed by the cameras.

    As far as I know there's never been a UK Jeopardy although Wheel of Fortune ran for quite a while. One of the presenters was John Leslie who"s career ended in sex offence allegations so they probably aren't repeating those episodes any time soon.
    We also had The Price is Right a couple of times. Originally presented by Leslie Crowther who was Phil Lynott's father in law ( just to bring us back to something a bit more rock'n'roll).

    For those wondering, the answer was "Unlocking Mysteries." I didn't see anyone say this yet.

    I laughed out loud when she guessed "Unsolving."
