The $1000 clue in Fictional lands was Pern and the contestant had to name the author which one of them did!!

Pricilla, most of the time, I agree. But, with Jeopardy you actually have to know something and be reasonably well-read....... unless it's Celebrity Jeopardy.

Cool. I've watched Jeopardy before, but mostly because my grandparents had it on. Same with Wheel of Fortune, which I eventually started ignoring. gets boring when you know the answer six turns before the contestants decide they're ready to guess it.

Part of the reason I dislike game shows so much is that they remind me of my least favorite aunt, who watched them every single day, even when she had company.

I watch very little tv. If there's nothing good on (which is seldom) I turn it off. My favorite button on the remote is the OFF button, followed by the MUTE! I'd rather listen to music on the stereo.

Aw, I'm trying out in their on-line quiz in January (if you make the quiz cut you go to the auditions.) Sure, use the good questions now. (My friend Craig won...I think it was the College Tournament, and that was the first year the College winner went on the Tournament of Champions and he did pretty well there, too. He posted the audition link to facebook and I figure why not....)
