I'm assuming just recent episodes, but maybe there will be a very nice surprise and there will be some classics?

Considering what Jeopardy did/has done with Netflix? I imagine more recent mostly, with MAYBE some classics tossed in.

I've seen that two of the weeks that will be on are Great American Cities San Diego and Chicago which aired in 2017 and were both rerun over this past summer.

Bring in the episode with AN AMERICAN SUCCESS STORY as a puzzle! They had a clip of that $44,300 solve before, so the full episode would be great to lead up to it.

Any classic episode with a big win could be good.

I don't know if they'll have every premiere, and I figure they'd more likely have episodes with significant changes to the game (such as the Big Month of Cash or giving RSTLNE for free). Other than that, it probably would be Season 24 and later.

But I guess I can keep dreaming...

The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat would be a good one too as to memorable losses.

I always thought it was odd that Netflix had Jeopardy! but not Wheel of Fortune. So glad that's changing, even if we only get recent episodes.  :biggrin:

It dropped early this morning. 25 episodes total, ranging from Seasons 34-37. Random episodes, no full weeks.

Not surprised there's nothing even close to classic Wheel era, but the lack of any full weeks is odd.

One of the South Florida episodes from Season 37 is missing the Prize Puzzle. It skips from Round 2 to the Triple Tossup.
