But anything can still happen here in…THE LIGHTING ROUND! This week on The Great American Pop Culture Quiz Show, John, Conor, and Jeff test their knowledge of properties that start in media res, showing a dramatic moment near the end of the story, before flashing back to the beginning. It’s a tried and true device that works great for hooking people in so they know there’s something exciting coming down the pike. Later, they’ll see how well they remember season-long villains from various TV shows, and then play the lightning round. But you already knew that last part.

Bleh! It’s me, Dracula! You know, from Dracula 2000? I’m here to tell you about this week’s episode, featuring Anna, Steve, and Derek competing in a game that features so much of me! But none of my actual movies. Which is fine because I’d rather be popping up in The Land Before Time than have to sit through Renfield. Then, I send our players on a cross-national road trip, driving only at night of course. Like Tilda Swinton requesting only night flights in Only Lovers Left Alive. Speaking of which, how has Taylor not asked a million questions over the years about Only Lovers Left Alive. Feels like a Babylonesque “Taylor won’t shut up about this one movie” type of pick. And Tom Hiddelston is just as sexy as William Conrad in it! Anyways, the lightning round is a blood bath, which means I absolutely loved it.

Dan, Taylor, and Dave dance around to a jaunty acoustic guitar, percussion, and melodica tune. The music stops, and so do they. They all shout “DAN!” They dance again before pausing to shout “DAVE!” Once more before shouting “TAYLOR!” If that gets you in the mood for Bluey-inspired pop culture trivia, you’re in luck! Monty, Levi, and Diedra find some very cute Bluey mash-ups in round one, but also some kind of weird ones let’s not talk about it. Instead, we’ll get very meta in round two when we see if our players can identify times on TV where an actor slyly referenced their previous onscreen work. Honestly, we wish Dan would do this more on our show by coyly dropping in direct quotes from his political TV appearances into the score updates. Will he do it? Obviously no. Taylor tried to have round three this week be a game of keepy-uppy, but his request was denied in lieu of a regular old lightning round. Sigh.

Three returning players in Tripp, Tarn, and Neil kick things off in style as they flex their knowledge of American remakes of foreign films, as well as theoretical musicals adapted properties who already have musicalistic exclamation points in their titles.

This week, we were pleased to welcome three very special guests from The Doctor Who podcast Verity. Grab your sonic screwdriver and join Hosts Erika Ensign, Lizbeth Myles, and Katrina Griffiths for pop culture trivia immediately adjacent to (or sometimes right within) their Whovian area of expertise. We’ll look at other pop culture portrayals of real historical figures portrayed on Doctor Who, as well as other roles of various Doctors from throughout the run of the show.

I’m always forgetting to write the episode descriptions until it’s time to publish, so I’m gonna try an experiment where I write it a few hours in advance of even recording this episode. Woah! What a crazy twist this season finale takes at the end. I never saw THAT ONE SPECIFIC THING coming, and I bet you won’t either as Larra, Kari, and Ben compete for the crown! An asthmatic game of my champion filled with some of the greatest arguments we’ve ever heard left our players huffing and puffing all the way into the red room for round one. A game of “name that Twin Peaks reference” where our players actually learned to speak their answers backwards [fact check this later] flows right into a round two game where we all tore our ears off listening to the tired cliché of somber covers and remixes that seem to adorn every movie trailer nowadays. And I can almost certainly promise you: there will be both right and wrong answers present in this round. That’s the Great American Pop Culture Quiz Show likely guarantee! And then, of course, it all comes down to a lightning so full of crazy surprises, I can’t even begin to describe them here! NOTES ⚠️ Inline notes below may be truncated due to podcast feed character limits.

After a couple of years of doing rounds about recent movies when ‘recent movies’ weren’t really a thing, we finally have a recent movies round where our players were more than up to the challenge! Kari, J-Mo, and JK (a veritable Venn diagram of middle-of-the-alphabet letters) tackle a classic before-and-after challenge of recent movies before being asked to recall critically panned comedies. ‘Cause we’re nice. And as per uzhe, it all comes down to the Lightning Round. This episode description brought to you by Taylor, while he was watching the opening car scene of The Client (1994). Take from that what you will. NOTES ⚠️ Inline notes below may be truncated due to podcast feed character limits.

Good grief! The season playoffs rage on as returning victors Ben, Cate and Joel tackle one of our silliest (aka dumbest) challenges yet--concocting titles of new Peanuts specials inspired by other pop culture properties. Then in round two, it’s a whole new batch of questions about various pop culture-inspired Monopoly boards. Just when we thought the concepts for that game couldn’t get any wilder, we found some truly ridiculous iterations. All this, plus the lightning round decide which player will compete in the championship match. The stakes have been higher. They've been lower too. We're just being honest here.

When Productionmaster Dave announced were gonna have a round of layoffs this season, I was a little hurt. As I gathered my composure to brace myself for the worst possible implications of such an announcement, I realized that he had actually said we were going to have a round of PLAYOFFS this season, and I felt like a fool for ever thinking otherwise. Thus, we were pleased to welcome back the uneliminated Larra, Ben and Elenore for a game about Beatles music in movies, and then made up our own rules for a round about fictional games and sports. All this and more (a normal, but nonetheless exciting, lightning round). NOTES ⚠️ Inline notes below may be truncated due to podcast feed character limits.

Will Cory and Courtney make JK lol? We’ll find out as we piece together mashed up acronyms from pop culture. Mashcronyms, I believe they’re called. Yup, that’s a real term that is in the dictionary. The OED probably, they’re fancy! Jury’s still out on Webster, but we KNOW those goons at American Heritage are too big of cowards to put a word like ‘mashcronym’ in their venerated publication. It’s so like them to just ignore the future of language like that, and they should frankly be appalled not only at their behavior, but at the fact that their reputation has made said behavior so predictable. Anyhoo, we got this acronym game! We got a game about video games. A video game game, if you will. Haha, we said game twice in a row. Hey, that gets us thinking, would the dead birds in ‘Duck Hunt’ be called ‘video game game?’ Makes you think, doesn’t it?

Say word! D-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-dilbert! Doink de doink! Sorry, dad! Dinky nuts! Squirrel jam! Hats! Balancing my checkbook! Zerbert in the sherbert! Twerk! One-hundred gift baskets! You’re now rocking with the Tesla boys! Baby Banjamin Franklin! Watch me veg! D.J. Tanner! Swanky pups! M-m-m-m-moped music! Costco samples like a m**********r! Uh! Crank up the mids! Patrick Stewart money! All these catchphrases are better, musically, than the comically awful musical dreck we forced Joel, Dan, and Steve to wade through in round one, inspired by non other than Miami Herald columnist Dave Barry. But our players pull themselves out of the Rock Bottom Remainder of round one into a second round all about pop culture-inspired theme park attractions (aka ‘who’s been to Carowinds in Charlotte?'). All this and more*! NOTES 🤔 Submit your At-Home Riddle or Harmonic Mean answer
The characters team up to kill the Giantess in “Into the Woods.” Not the witch. If you read this before listening and keep that detail in mind, what follows will make a bit more sense. But after a rocky start (which is also due to Taylor’s deep character flaws re: season two of The Wire), Ben, Michael, and John make a strong showing in this competition, identifying movies whose titles are complete sentences, as well as movies that contain elements that use both colorful and monochromatic palettes. And of course, it all comes down to how each will fare in the lightning round. NOTES ⚠️ Inline notes below may be truncated due to podcast feed character limits. Full notes are always on the episode page. 🔤 A to Z is a pretty shameless rip-off of How I Met Your Mother, but points for having Katey Segal as the narrator. 🥋 No, the five point palm exploding heart technique from Kill Bill isn’t real, even if it was in Bloodsport, too. 🍣 Jiro, from Jiro Dreams of Sushi, lost his Michelin stars not because of a drop in quality, but because he stopped accepting reservations from the general public. 🐰 The Samurai Warrior: The Battles of Usagi Yojimbo scorebreak. Samurai Warrior: The Battles of Usagi Yojimbo any chance we can get this 80s classic on Steam? Please? [8/10 There’s an Usagi Yojimbo video game?] 🎨 Jamie Foxx was on four seasons of In Living Color, but not all five. 😈 In the comics, Sin City does occasionally use colors other than black and white. In addition to “That Yellow Bastard” there were pops of red and blue in places. 🐟 Contrary to common misconception, while Rumble Fish is written by S.E. Hinton, it has no story or character connections to The Outsiders. 🪽 In Wings of Desire, the use of color is also used to comment on the division between East and West Berlin. 👱🏻‍♀️ It’s not just Taylor – the director of Blonde says that there isn’t a story reason for the shifts between black and white and color. 🏥 The Kingdom Hospital scorebreak. Kingdom Hospital 345 medical dramas on TV, and this is the one that gets canned right away? [3/10 It was different than other doctor shows, but how many episodes did you expect from the US version of a Lars Von Trier TV series?] 🎭 After its 25 year run on Bravo, Inside the Actors Studio moved to Ovation, where it’s still running. ⛳️ Dorf on Golf and the rest of the series were released direct-to-video, for $29.95 a shot, and sold hundreds of thousands of copies. 🎙️ Aline is technically not about Celine Dion, except it totally is. 🪶 The Decameron was a major influence on The Canterbury Tales. 🎞️ You can follow Ben on Letterboxd 🐦 John is on Twitter 🐦 And also as Angry Sondheim 🎶 Michael has a Spotify playlist of "Eighties Ladies: Beyond Thunderdome” 🤔 Submit your At-Home Riddle or Harmonic Mean answer
As a result of this episode, we are now calling our Scorekeeper “Renaissance Dan.” Why? Cause he loves Leonardo Da Vinci, and included all sorts of pop culture representations of the previously most popular “Leonardo D.” But how well with our contestants Matt, Maxwell, and J-Mo fare? Almost as well as the bananas round two in which they’re tasked with identifying each half of a comic book crossover between a superhero and a real life person. Will Da Vinci pop up again? Who knows?!? Well, we know. We wrote the questions. But you can know by listening to all that, plus our customary lightning round. Enjoy! NOTES ⚠️ Inline notes below may be truncated due to podcast feed character limits. Full notes are always on the episode page. 🏆 Joseph of Arimathea is a real saint, and Monty Python is in good company in linking him with the resting place of the Holy Grail in England. 👀 Do you read and enjoy episode show notes? If so, please click this link so we know people really read these. 🛡️ In addition to an absolutely cut Da Vinci, Marvel’s SHIELD has historical figures like Galileo fighting Galactus. 🖖 A holographic Da Vinci shows up on Star Trek: Voyager, and Captain Janeway comments that Kirk met the real Da Vinci at one point. 🐍 Blackadder: Back and Forth has Dan’s absolute favorite Blackadder quote. 😬 Grandma Betsy’s Biscuit Powder scorebreak - Grandma Betsy’s Biscuit Powder. You know, most of Mr. Show has aged pretty well. [1/10 wooof] 🫡 Stan Lee’s appearance on Eureka in that same time frame is close – he plays a character named “Lee,” but he’s a general, and, to our knowledge, Stan Lee was not in the military after his WWII service. 🦸🏻‍♂️ Orson Welles turned up in 1949’s Superman #62. 🦆 If you missed him the first time around, Count Duckula is a cartoon duck who’s a vegetarian, like Bunnicula. 🤷‍♂️ Techcorp systems scorebreak. Techcorp systems – OK, I don’t know how to pronounce typewriter symbols. Sorry. [5/10 Yeah, amusing, but this is a family program] 🤔 Will Ferrell’s Casa de mi Padre is not quite a spoof, but exists most because Ferrell thought it would be funny to do a Spanish language telenovela. 🇲🇽 The US remake of Miss Bala reads very differently than the 2011 Mexican remake. 🔨 When it started in the 1930s, Hammer Films made historical films about British royalty. 🍿 The woman in the poster for Rochelle, Rochelle looks a lot like Lena Headey, but it’s an actress named Chela Holton. 🐦 Maxwell is on Twitter 📷 And on Instagram 🎶 And has a podcast called Musically Wright ✏️ Matt does crosswords for alternative newsweeklies 🌎 And puts everything he does on his website 🐦 He can also be found on Twitter 📷 And Instagram 📼 And even on YouTube 🎞️ J.

As competition in the Gizmonic Institute division ramps up, Ben, Mike and Matthew first have to journey to the Overlook hotel to see where other pop culture properties have appropriated elements of The Shining, then try to wrap their brains around what passes for children’s lit in another round all about Little Golden Books. But as it so often does, it really all comes down to the lightning round. NOTES ⚠️ Inline notes below may be truncated due to podcast feed character limits. Full notes are always on the episode page. 🌫️ Matt Damon did, indeed, want the Bourne video games to be more like Myst. 🍍 The Psych episode in question is season 6, episode 11, “Heeeeere's Lassie.” 🥚 There are, of course, Easter eggs that everyone is looking for in Ready Player One. 🥁 The BGC-19 drum machine scorebreak. The BGC-19 drum machine: for when you have to fight the alien queen but want to lay down some beats while you’re at it. [6/10 I’ll buy the action figure, but marked down for Rocketship X-M] 🎢 There are shockingly few Little Golden Books based on Disney Rides. Get on that! 🪴 It’s not really clear from the movie, but ET was a botanist. 🤡 Ronald McDonald has a weird backstory, but nothing about a perm. 🤷‍♂️ The Johnny Long Torso - The Man Who Comes In Pieces scorebreak. Johnny Longtorso - The Man Who Comes In Pieces: He's long! [5/10 I probably made my parents buy this for me as a child] 🐻 Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is a result of the original falling out of copyright protection. 🦈 The first question on Google about Big Shark is “What is Big Shark about?” which betrays a shocking lack of imagination. 🇩🇰 Hamlet is performed more in Germany than in England. 🐦 Ben is on Twitter 🇪🇺 Ben talks Eurovision on his podcast 💻 His website with all of his online stuff is at Good At Internet 🎞️ Matthew podcasts at Second Screening 🤔 Submit your At-Home Riddle or Harmonic Mean answer
We’re back in the Veridian Dynamics Division as newcomers Adam and Siobhan take on seasoned vet Larra! I mean…Adam and Siobhan are also taking on each other, I suppose. It’s still a 1v1v1 competition. They’re not teaming up AGAINST Larra, unless they did so under the radar and none of us noticed their devious plot. Regardless of whatever intentions or secret alliances there may be or not be (alliances that have been purely conjectured by the author of this copy, based on the dicey syntax of the first sentence that could have just been edited, but instead spun off into whatever this paragraph has become), our three players drop knowledge of film scores, pop music, and the place where their titles meet. Then things really heat up in round two when we talk about the non-royal performances of actors who’ve played kings and queens of England. NOTES ⚠️ Inline notes below may be truncated due to podcast feed character limits. Full notes are always on the episode page. 🚀 Star Wars might be the only movie that hasn’t featured All Star. 💎 Vicki Sue Robinson might only have had one big hit, but she sang back-up on some songs you know and was the singing voice of characters on the cartoon Jem. 🏁 Jinkx Monsoon is a winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race. 🐓 The Octo-Chicken scorebreak. The octo-chicken: it’ll solve the wings shortage, if we can get it out of that web. And fix the venom issue. [7/10 Not sure this isn’t a thing already] 👸 The play The Audience had Helen Mirren as Elizabeth II. 🪓 Eric Bana was Henry VIII in The Other Boleyn Girl. 🤖 Yes, the Destroyer from Thor is a robot. 📏 Edward I was called “longshanks” ‘cause he was real tall. 🥵 The Solar powered ovens scorebreak. Solar powered ovens: Sure, the sun causes the plastic to leach toxic chemicals into the food, but how big a deal is that? [4/10 Uncomfortably close to reality] 🪶 Alan Moore is now sometimes credited as “The Original Writer.” 🗼 Barad-dûr is not, actually, the good tower, no matter what Dan says. 📚 Jane Eyre is by Charlotte Brontë. 🔥 Hadestown also tells the story of Hades and Persephone 🌸 Chrysanthemum did eventually come to the US, but was undercut by Thoroughly Modern Millie 🧱 Adam runs Bricks & Minifigs in Kalamazoo 😔 Which is on Facebook 📷 And on Instagram
