"Jeopardy! Greatest of All Time" Shines the Spotlight on a TV Institution: Alex Trebek

There are game shows, and then there is Jeopardy!.

Created by Merv Griffin, with whose Wheel of Fortune it trips in syndicated tandem through the ages, it is an institution, an education, a model for living. Though it is a contest for money, it is also a quiet quest for excellence in a way that, say, The Price Is Right is not.

To say Alex Trebek is the right guy for the job is almost a tautology, since on some fundamental level, he and the show have become identical.

Binged this with the wife and it was awesome! We had to keep dodging spoilers left and right. Highly recommended.

Calling this early, but a comment Alex Trebek made makes me think he already knows his successor. He told the players with certainty "This is the last time all 3 of you will appear together on this stage as contestants". Makes me think one of them (fingers crossed for Ken or Brad) might soon fill his shoes.

Just wild speculation though :)
