The Clue Crew Feels Very… 1992

The Clue Crew Feels Very... 1992

I was watching Jeopardy today (hey, I work from home for now!) and saw that they now have some auxiliary component called “The Clue Crew” and it looks/feels like a really lame idea. The crew is made up of a super-diverse group of five failed actors hosts who travel the land on the Brain Bus in search of trivia. Maybe they should read up on oil and global warming factoids, because the Brain Bus doesn’t seem very practical. I bring this up because Jeopardy has been on the air for decades, and this is how they try to increase the hip factor? Check this out:

I would not be surprised if the TV executive who came up with this idea, was behind 1980s PBS shows like 3-2-1 Contact or Square One TV.
