Locals who watched Tuesday night’s episode of “Jeopardy!” probably felt wicked smaht during one category.
One of the six categories during the first round of play was “That movie’s in Boston,” and featured clues that were only focused on Boston-set films.
Alex Trebek even tried out his best Boston accent for the $200 question, which was written with the local inflection in mind: “This 1997 movie was up for 9 Oscahs & took home 2 — you got its numbahs; how do you like them apples?!”
The evening’s contestants managed to get all five clues correct, even the slightly more difficult $1,000 question. See if you can match wits with the smahtypants on “Jeopardy!” by guessing all five clues below:
