More information about Final Jeopardy:
“The program you are about to see is All in the Family. It seeks to throw a humorous spotlight on our frailties, prejudices and concerns. By making them a source of laughter, we hope to show—in a mature fashion—just how absurd they are.” That’s the full disclaimer that preceded the iconic 1970s Norman Lear sitcom, whose lead character was the bigoted Archie Bunker. In its heyday, nearly 50 million Americans a week tuned in. It was Lear’s hope that he could tone down society’s bigotry by portraying it in a comedic light; whether that was ultimately successful is a matter of debate, as there are many people—even today—who see Archie Bunker as a personal hero figure to them (and use his character flaws as justification for their own personal bigotry).

- Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Michonne won an extra game and a few extra thousand dollars than she otherwise would have by using her strategy. Kimberly wouldn’t have seen Michonne’s bet on Friday, but it’s quite possible that Kimberly might have picked up some inkling in green room chatter.
