You know, I wrote a Ping five years ago about the then-new Jeopardy! set. I figured, “Hey, this is great,” and moved on.
But I think I’ve been topped handily by none other than Wikipedia. Here for your reading pleasure is a complete review of the evolution of Jeopardy!‘s sets. The amount of detail here is just staggering.
For instance: I learned that one of the recent sets was nicknamed “Sushi Bar.” And, the first pilot featured a ridiculous-looking design with two giant PCs. And Alex Trebek emerged from the floppy drive. NOT KIDDING.
Good stuff, this. I will admit a little tiny part of me is sad that this incredible detail is on Wikipedia and not a random GeoCities page… but you take what you can get.
