that was awesome, I wish they didn't have the silly vignettes though and we were getting 3 full games.
In terms of buzzer, the nyt article speaks to how the best humans are faster than the machine (at least they were months ago when the article was written: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/20/ma...pagewanted=all
Although we didn't really see it get beat much on the buzzer, Ken beat it twice (Julia and leg)
One that I found really interesting was one where it didn't buzz in during the decades category (16 mins into the 20 min ep for fellow dl'ers), where none of three most likely answers were even decades.

I would hope (and would guess) that the writers didn't know which clues were going to get on the Watson eps when they were writing them. I remember during Ken's huge run, the writers said they couldn't write clues with Ken in mind even if they wanted to, since they write the clues so long in advance and don't know when a particular category will be used.
