"Watching Jeopardy! on Netflix and man, how are they going to replace Trebek? That man was Jeopardy!"
RIP the actual host with the most, Alex Trebek. We had a quarantine tradition where my dad and I watched Jeopardy every night. He kept score then told my mom how many I got right. He took it v srsly. I decided to prank him by watching it on Netflix beforehand and my mom was like pic.twitter.com/O4qcINI04l— alexandra dole (@alexandradole) November 9, 2020
The real dream is for them to put up more (every?) Jeopardy episode up on Netflix instead of the weird ‘collections’ they have been putting up.— Jack Thomason (@VinylJack) November 9, 2020
"If Netflix doesn’t release the entirety of Alex Trebek’s run as Jeopardy! host, I will be livid. Release it slowly if you want, one season/collection a month or whatever, but release the whole damn thing. Hell, release every single episode ever."

"I cut my cable a month ago and the show I miss by far the most is Jeopardy! I recorded every episode before and binge watched them regularly. I’ve burned through the Netflix episodes. I need to watch this and other remaining episodes. I might just have to get my cable back."
In the honor and recognition of Alex Trebek’s legendary 8,200 episode career, @netflix needs to re-air the entire Jeopardy! catalog— Nicholas Polisno (@nick_polisano) November 9, 2020

I’m so sad at this news. I love Jeopardy and have watched every episode available on Netflix. He seemed like such a nice man 😢— Just Sheena (@sheenz_m_) November 9, 2020
"So many on my feed have fond memories of being on Jeopardy! And/or meeting Alex. Watching him on tv (and now Netflix) was equally profound. I wish they streamed in India when I was growing up. His legacy lives on and strong."
I have always been a jeopardy fan since I was 10. From cable to Netflix, I still watch this. And I always join the narrator whenever he says, “Here’s your host - Alex Trebek!” https://t.co/wN6uAiYZ3e— Chari Macalino (@thecharidiaries) November 9, 2020
@netflix make all of "Jeopardy" free for a month. We need this.— Midwonntar (@ConalDarcy) November 9, 2020
"Not Alex!! RIP Alex Trebek. It’s weird, I’ve been watching the latest season of Jeopardy! on Netflix thinking Alex was doing much better and that everything was okay, completely ignoring the COVID aspect, wanting it to have been taped this year."
