The Jeopardy! (1984) story is based on a real episode: Jeopardy!: Episode #30.21 (2013). The Final Jeopardy clue is the same, and one contestant incorrectly answered "What is Ukraine?" just like in the story. As well, Patti says "Stuart was the four-time reigning champ" - in the next episode, there was a contestant named Stuart who went on to win three games. See more »

What was that?
29 November 2015 | by marianne-mag-josephSee all my reviews

Man, my brain still hurts. This is one screwed up episode! But in an awesome freaking way! Damn, I'm so confused but I also have tears in my eyes. What was that? Can anyone explain it to me?

The acting is so good... Wow. And the director did a great job in delivering the main message and the purpose of this episode. Phew, philosophical stuff... This episode kinda scared me!

As you can see and read, I'm not really by myself... This episodes was too good to be true. It's a brain-shaker and full of interesting scenes. It keeps you guessing throughout.

Kevin is hot as always. We got some nice shots of him. Good that he's not only handsome, his acting skills are amazing!
