CULVER CITY, Calif. (WIAT) — Starting July 20, “JEOPARDY!” will be airing four-week retrospective series in which viewers take a look at some of the biggest moments in the show’s history.

According to a press release sent to CBS 42, the “JEOPARDY” producers have combed through almost 8,000 episodes and have narrowed that list down to 20 of the most impactful episodes. With some of the episodes having aired only once, this re-runs are a must-watch for “JEOPARDY!” fans everywhere.

Executive producer Mike Richards is hopeful that the nostalgia from these old episodes will add to the fun and excitement of watching the show.

“What is incredible about “JEOPARDY!” is that it has historical importance while remaining culturally relevant today,” said Richards. “I know our fans will love the nostalgia while still enjoying the gameplay. A lot has changed over the years – the set, the pace of the game…the mustache! – but the ability to play along is timeless.”
