    Re: Jeopardy!

    I kind of like the changes to the set -- it's a little less severe than all those stripes that used to be on the floor. It's kind of like a mix of the last 2 set designs:



    But the blues and purples are a little deep & oversaturated. Don't they know they're in HD now?

    Yes. And the set designers really need to consult with AND listen to Maggie Speak (Senior Contestant Coordinator). I ::: her! She has a wealth of experience and insight in the industry, along with a great eye. And she's paid attention to *everyone* during her career. When I was a contestant, we had a fun (albeit short, as it was a busy day) conversation about reds and blues my red hair and blue sweater against a redwood + blue set at the time and how the camera/lighting guys would use my "color profile" as a reference for balancing color (and other fancy words). Anyway, the blue-purple stuff is a huge challenge to the techies, but if they get it right, they score big in the tech Emmys (the so-called boring awards that never make it to the big dog-and-pony on TV).
    Knowing what I've learned from Ms. Speak, I watch for this stuff now.
    And I hope to have the opportunity to meet with her again someday. Just being on "Jeopardy!" was awesome in itself, of course. But Maggie Speak made it not so stressful and ... hard to put into words ... kinda like "at home."

    Re: Jeopardy!

    So this season will be featuring a special Battle of the Decades tournament, bringing back the 45 best players from the last 30 years.

    Luckily, all but two ToC winners in Jeopardy history are coming back. One of them died and the other is unavailable.

    Check this out:

    He already will be.

    He's one of the 14 guaranteed spots of the 2010s.

    I'm happy he's back.

    I couldn't stand him and refused to watch any of the shows he was on.

    But this is only Jeopardy, not some drama-induced reality show.

    He was a ToC winner so he earned his spot

    Colby is getting hate on the FB page too. I'm gonna root for him because he doesn't deserve the hate.

    I don't think I really disliked Colby -- I just assumed that permanent smirk was something he's had from birth.
