There have been
about it, but to avoid spoiling
in hidden text (highlight to read): I have mixed feelings about
the end of Matt Amodio's amazing Jeopardy! run. On one level it was fun to
watch his amazing play. On the other hand, a vast majority of Matt's wins were
what Alex liked to characterize as "runaways" where he couldn't be caught in
Final Jeopardy. Fact is, most of his matches seemed over by the end of the first
Jeopardy round. So while it was amazing to see Matt demonstrate his incredibly broad
knowledgebase, it started to seem almost too easy. What's really too bad is that
I believe the Jeopardy rules mean that hosting disqualifies you from playing
anymore, so we'll never get to see Matt and Ken Jennings go head-to-head in a
tournament of champions.
