RIP Mr.Trebek.

I was never really smart enough in being able to watch Jeopardy. I always joked in that our local TV station having Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy back to back, with my going from genius to village idiot in a hour's time frame.

Best host for the best game show ever. I can't see anyone filling his shoes, though I hope the show will continue. :/

It's weird to see him host some of the other shows he hosted back in the early days of his career.

Trebek is still around, with Jesse Ventura, the original men in black. He's just been reassigned to shadow Gordon Freeman.

Every Darin Morgan episode was the best of the X-Files. I think he did maybe six episodes and they're all my favorites from that series.

I really wanted to see Jesse Ventura and Alex Trebek as recurring characters but it didn't happen. That one scene was memorable. First thing I thought of when I heard Trebek died. Well, that, plus the SNL sketches.

I had only ever caught maybe 1/3 of the episodes of The X-Files when it was on broadcast television.
The first thing I did many years ago after subscribing to Netflix was to put all of the episodes into my queue, then watched them all.
