Hello! Today is Wednesday, April 14, 2021 (Season 37, Game 143). The silence from Jeopardy! is growing more and more deafening in the face of the 230,000-signature strong petition asking for LeVar Burton to host. This is becoming an increasingly bad look on Mike Richards’ part and could eventually be seen as another strike against a producer who has been sued by former employees on multiple occasions for discrimination. Richards also seems to think that, somehow, Dr. Oz isn’t political or divisive; I’m very quickly losing confidence in the judgement of Mike Richards.
(I would also like to explicitly point out that none of this is the fault of any of the other guest hosts chosen, some of whom I have worked closely with in the past. You’re doing your best to honour Alex’s memory the best way that you can, and I hope that you feel that you did an incredible job. My criticisms are pointed solely at the Executive Producer.)
On with the show, here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Shakespeare):
With 4,042 lines, it’s Shakespeare’s longest play & it’s also the one that’s been filmed the most
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Patrick Hume, a project manager originally from Stoneham, Massachusetts
|Kari Stadem, a retired homeschooler from Willmar, Minnesota
|Erick Loh, a pastor from Northridge, California (1-day total: $21,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Erick won yesterday after being the only person to get Final Jeopardy! correct; however, he would not have won had either of his opponents done so, despite leading going into Final. If Patrick or Kari picked up on that from the audience.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2021 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Since the beginning of the 20th century, over 50 versions of Hamlet have been released. The most significant of these include Laurence Olivier’s 1948 version that won the Oscar for Best Picture. Interestingly, because the play at full length will run about four hours long, this has given directors the opportunity to shape the narrative more to their own personal liking (for example, Fortinbras is omitted in Olivier’s version, giving it a less political tone).
