Jeopardy!: An Inside Look at America's Favorite Quiz Show

As an avid fan of the popular game show, I decided to check out this 2005 DVD which is actually only five famous episodes of the show: The first episode, Ken Jennings final game, and the three episodes making up the finals for the Ultimate Tournament of Champions. The good stuff is in the bonus features which shows a history of the show, an introduction to three of its most interesting champions, and a behind the scenes featurette showing what goes into a show and what you don't see during a show. Though the bonus features were intriguing, the main material, which was just 5 episodes like I said, seemed like it was hastily thrown together to capitalize on their resurgent success at the time due to Jennings and their high stakes tourney.
