After 12 matchups of pop culture knowledge display, 24 contestants eliminated, and 36 Lightning Rounds played, it all comes down to this: The Season One Finale to determine our first Super-Mondo Champion of Champions! Derek, Ilan, and Monty complete the running of the trivia gauntlet first by getting into contrarian pop music. How many songs that have "don't" in the imperative can our players identify? Then, it's a test of pop culture settings AND US geography as our players arrange movie and TV settings from east to west. A mythic Lightning Round category finally sees its day in the sun before we crown our winner. Remember to solve the riddle, because season two is right around the corner.

Trivia! Playoffs! Musicals! Exclamation Points! The last round of the playoffs is here! Prior champions Joe, Monty, and Kevin duke it out, pop culture trivia-style, for the last slot in the season one championship match. After a round of trivia about pop culture romances that don’t exactly hold up to scrutiny, players will test their knowledge of stage musicals based on other pop culture properties (you know, the kind where you just add an exclamation point to the title, and suddenly it’s a musical). On top off of all that, we’ve got an all-timer of a Lightning Round and a savage at-home riddle at the end!

Filmed books and fictional bands abound this week on The Great American Pop Culture Quiz Show! The playoffs continue as returning victors Alex, Ilan, and Nick tackle trivia about what happens when a movie or TV version of a book is better than the original. Then, our contestants become armchair rock critics for our favorite fictional bands, identifying them based on clips from their music, and interviews with the band members. All this, plus a Lightning Round, determines who will venture on to the season finale championship matchup. And don't forget the at-home riddle challenge for you, the listener!

The playoffs begin with Oscar acceptance speeches and mysterious locations! Returning champions Derek, Anna, and Bobby battle it out by touting all their pop culture knowledge. But only ONE will continue on to the championship match! Our first game this week asks players to identify the Hollywood figure by listening to their Oscar acceptance speeches, while also challenging them on additional Oscar trivia! After that, the contestants will identify some notable locations from pop culture-based off descriptions given by people travelling there.

This week on The Great American Pop Culture Quiz Show, contestants Don, Cate, and Kevin "consider the alternative" about some favorite TV shows, naming shows based on plot descriptions from the point-of-view of secondary characters. Then, we'll switch gears to movies with a deep dive on the IMDb Top 100 movies. Players will aim low to score high, one-upping each other to guess the "worst of the best." It's as much about movies as it is about knowing who even votes on the IMDb Top 100, so we let the sociological assumptions fly. As always, it all comes down to the Lightning Round! And stick around for an at-home riddle challenge for you, the listener at home!

S01.E08: Disney Minus

This week, it's Disney minus the weird, dark and creepy stuff they left out of their animated adaptations. Before that however, our players will speculate on the birthing techniques of their favorite characters, and then try to name the common character from a list of three different actors who have played them. Then as promised, it's on to "Disney Minus," where players identify the differences between their favorite Disney classics and the less-wholesome stories that inspired them. Absentee fathers! Shootings! Death! Death! Death! As always, there's a Lightning Round, and a special challenge for the listeners at home!

It's a cavalcade of comic book crossovers and pop culture rhymes in this week's competition! After a rousing round of My Champion, Bobby, Stephen and Susanna test their knowledge of crazy comic book crossover events that brought together unlikely characters and properties. Then, it's on to a rhyming game, where from a mashed up description, players parse out the two rhyming TV show and movie titles that have been combined. All that plus a Lightning Round and the At-home Version riddle for you to solve!

It's time to identify the altered TV show themes our resident composer has created when he confused his major and his minor keys up. After that, it's time to browse some very silly pieces of very real pop culture merch—and pay all the respect to the vociferous fans of a certain animated series. Our talented combatants Elenore, Mark, and Ilan have a bit of a fishy start, but all's well that ends well... and the ending? Well, we'll leave that to y'all to discover. Speaking about endings, don't forget to stick around at the tail end for the At-Home Version riddle for your chance to name a score break!
