Xander gets a clue. Nicholas Brendon was featured in a Jeopardy! clue during the second round of yesterday's program.

As the $800 clue in the category "X"-MEN this was one of only three questions in the round to stump all three contestants.

The show itself was also featured in a category last week. The clue had a picture of a gentleman from Hush.
Now I taunt all the smart folks since I know at least 1 thing that they apparently don't. :)
Another example that tv can not only give you knowledge, but also help you win cashy money ;)
The category titles made me smile.
Unfortunately, not one of the 3 contestants could identify Xander. But I was happy...I correctly said "Baffin" for Final Jeopardy and Husband didn't get it right. I won the big bucks! (in my head...)
While I was watching, the category titles made me go "OH MY GOD!" then the clue about Xander made me go "OH MY GOD, I WISH I could post this at whedonesque!" I guess I could have, afterall...
I saw this and I was so disappointed that this question stumped the contestants.
I was disappointed that nobody could conjure up the villain of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Not even a guess?
woo & hoo: "I was disappointed that nobody could conjure up the villain of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Not even a guess?"

Are you talking about "King Simon of Legree" from the Small House of Uncle Thomas?

I would so have gotten that.
Yeah, the catagories were great. I tuned in and almost spit out my drink when I heard that one of the catagories was called "X-Men." I was in heaven once I heard the other catagories.

A valid permutation, methinks, but one I am unsure that the Jeopardy judges would permit

...given they were probably not intending to refer to a Siamese (now, er, Thai) abolitionist ballet from a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, though some (more creative minds) could rightly argue.
Thanks for the link to that website. I love Jeopardy but never seem to catch it on TV.
Cor blimey but I need to get on that show...not that I could keep any of the money given my tax situation but it'd still be a good thing to do.
Have gotten a colleague and her boyfriend into Buffy...they just finished Season 4, and today she emailed me saying, Hey, Xander was on Jeopardy! Can you lend us Season 5??

(Quotergal, we kiss in a shadow! Best ever version, June Christy , with Stan Kenton, the "Duet" album.)

I still love that application essay to W&F that identifies Xander as the greatest force for good in Sunnydale.
