I Lost on Jeopardy

So Lonely Productions—The Cinematheque

This is a very well scripted and well performed show. For Jeopardy fans, like myself, hearing about the process to become a contestant and what it is like to actually be on the show was really interesting. Even more interesting was George Buri’s excellent analysis and reflections on competition, what makes people competitive, winning and losing. This show is most definitely a winner.
