Jeopardy has fascinated American quiz show fans since 1984 and this collection showcases five of the most memorable Jeopardy episodes. More intriguing than the episodes themselves, however, are the in-depth bonus features that focus on the game's history and inner workings. The first Jeopardy episode hosted by Alex Trebek in 1984 provides a look at a game with a somewhat different set of rules based on the then innovative idea of providing contestants with answers rather than questions. Contestant Ken Jennings' 74-game winning streak culminates in "Ken's 75th" losing episode and showcases this champion's amazing intellect, his grace in defeat and the audience's appreciation of him as a contestant. In the trio of "Ultimate" Jeopardy episodes, the game's three biggest champions Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and Jerome Vered face off in Jeopardy's three most difficult matches. "21 years of Questions and Answers," hosted by Merv Griffin and Alex Trebek, follows the game from its inception in the 1960's as "What's the Question" through the many milestones and changes that have marked Jeopardy's evolution throughout the years. "Behind the Answers" features commentary by senior producer Gary Johnson, director Kevin McCarthy, executive producer Harry Friedman, and host Alex Trebek, and follows ideas from inception through final production, detailing the immense amount of research devoted to each Jeopardy question. "What Does it Take to Get a Clue?" highlights some of Jeopardy's most memorable contestants including Ken Jennings (74 consecutive wins), Frank Spangenberg (5 time champion in 1990) and Eddie Timanus (Jeopardy's first blind contestant in 1999) and describes the qualities inherent in a great Jeopardy contestant. Finally, the multi-camera option follows an episode through five separate camera angles giving viewers access to the control booth, Alex Trebek's screen and podium, and multiple angles of the contestants and game board. --Tami Horiuchi
