This week, we kick off a new division with Susan, Laura, and Stephen! A surprisingly intimidating karaoke party in "My Champion" leads to an awful lot of fanfare for round one where players guess movie production companies from just the sound of their logos. Then, we'll keep the sequence going with "The Clothes Lineups" where contestants add one more name to those BLANK & BLANK & BLANK etc. shirts. And of course, it all gets decided in the lightning round. Support Us On Patreon ย  ๐Ÿฅ‡ Become a patron and get special perks from ad-free episodes to full bonus matches!

Siegfried and Roy: Only one of them reforges Nothung and marries his aunt, and it sure ain't Roy.
Things are absolutely wretched in the BEST way on this week's episode. Liz, Dave, and Matt get down with their bad selves for the most reviled characters and content. Round one will quiz them on the deaths of famous witches throughout pop culture, before round two goes deep on the taglines for winners of the Golden Raspberry Awards (aka the Razzies).

Cheesy Blasters: You take a hot dog, stuff it with some jack cheese, fold it in a pizza. You've got Cheesy blasters. Thanks, Meat Cat! ย  ๐Ÿ” This score break is brought to you by cozy mystery novels! Cozy mystery novels: they're like true crime, only the victim is usually a jerk who had it coming, and sometimes there are recipes at the end!
Season four has begun! A brand new cabal of 27 contestants kicks off today with Neil, Jennifer, and Lauryn. A model game of My Champion gives way to trivia about some truly wild crossover events that you can ONLY find in the pages of comic books. Round two classes things up a bit with a mashup game about BAFTA winners. And, of course, it all comes down to the lightning round. Want MORE of The Great American Pop Culture Quiz Show?

Summer is here! Before season four gets into full swing, we're celebrating the summertime movies season with an episode all about summer blockbusters. Returning season one champion Ilan takes on two eager new players, Lynn and Vandy, with some trivia about the big budget releases from May to August. Round one features excerpts of novelizations of big blockbusters, while round two has the players identify a movie from its deeper supporting cast. It all caps off with a time traveling lightning round. We'll see you next week with a brand new bracket of players for season four!

Season four is on the way! But in the meantime, we pulled in some musical enthusiast friends for a special episode of trivia and games all about the world of music theatre. Adam, Sean, and Gabi will face an unusual My Champion challenge, wrestle with some rewritten "I Want" songs, and really rack up the points in an old fashioned audio round of "Name That Musical." Some high scoring lightning rounds make this one a real barn burner! This recording had TOO much bonus content to fit into one episode. So this Friday, our Patreon subscribers will hear a couple just-for-fun bonus rounds that we also ran down with our players. Interested in MORE musicals trivia?

We've arrived at out third season finale! This week, our three divisional victors Kate, Mike, and Randy will all square off to become the next super mondo champion of champions. The game kicks off with a special round of My Champion that recalls another notable third season finale, before round one quizzes our players on movies that mash up characters from all kinds of other properties. The mashing up gets even brainier in round two when players name the family sitcom based on information about other characters played by those same actors. Related follow ups take our players in even more different directions, so breadth of knowledge is key for this episode. And in true Great American Pop Culture Quiz Show Fashion, it all comes down to the lightning round to truly determine the winner.

Coconut LaCroix: all the refreshing taste of pennies coated in sunscreen, with none of the visits to the ER after. ย  ๐Ÿš  Somehow, this is the first time that we've referenced the X-Men character Cable. He has just about the most complex history of any of the X-Men, and that's saying something. ย  ๐Ÿคช The Cary Fukunaga's Maniac Scorebreak. Cary Fukunaga's Maniac: it's been a hot minute since we referenced this Netflix series here on the show, so we figued we'd put it back into your brains because we're sure you've forgotten about it again by now.
The final match of the season three playoffs has arrived! Returning players Julia, Eric, and Mike compete to claim the last spot on our season three championship match next week. The game kicks off with a musical challenge where faded audio clips form unlikely supergroups (e.g. Crowded House of Pain). Things get numerical in round two as players pick the pop culture property with the highest playing card in its title. After our kings and queens absolutely ace this challenge, a rousing lightning round determines the winner.

Weekend At Bernie's: deep down, we all like it better than Dangerous Liaisons. ย  ๐Ÿงโ€โ™€๏ธ "Long, tall Sally, she's built for speed, she got everything that Uncle John need," is perhaps the most nonsensical set of lyrics to ever appear in a popular song. ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฎ The Gene Hackman Trending On Twitter Scorebreak. Gene Hackman trending on Twitter: it's just his birthday, nothing to worry about ย  ๐ŸŽผ The Grace Jones lyric referenced in round three is, indeed, a double entendre. We apologize for any confusion.
Small changes make big differences on this week's episode. The season three playoffs continue with a tense match to decide the winner of the Appellate Division. After Randy, Trip, and Will undertake a high society dinner challenge for their champions, round one asks them to name movies and TV shows whose titles have had one letter changed. In round two, we'll take a different tack to alter some movies by describing their plots in reverse. Can the players think backwards to come up with the answers? Then, we'll pull a temporal pincer movement to resume forward motion in the lightning round, where the next player in the season three championship will be decided.

The season three playoffs have arrived! Today, returning victors Emma, Conrado, and Kate square off for a spot in the championship match. Round one tests their knowledge of movies and tv shows that are composed of characters from other pop culture properties, while round two asks them to identify recent best picture winners by their DVD extras.

Also, in OUAT, Frankenstein's origin involves Rumpelstiltskin, because reasons. ย  ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ The Bosch scorebreak brought to you by the Bosch Booster Benevolent Society. If you already pay for Amazon Prime, if you feel like watching a perfectly acceptable police procedural with a compelling star and solid supporting cast, and if you have already watched The Closer and Major Crimes, you could do worse than Bosch. ย  ๐Ÿ™ƒ Dermot Mulroney and Dylan McDermott Face Blindness Foundation: Cโ€™mon people, they donโ€™t even look that much alike!
Ever wonder what the greatest one-hit wonders of all time would sound like if they were played by an old-school Nintendo? Of course you haven't! Why would you? Regardless, you'll find out on this week's episode with fierce competitors Paul, Mike, and Stephanie! After the "8-Bit Wonders" have concluded, we'll quiz the players on movies whose titles sound like they SHOULD be in a series, but aren't. You'll be left wishing that the sequel to 28 Days was actually 28 Days Later. Our players leave it all on the table, and a winner is crowned after a rousing lightning round. In case you were unaware, we're making all sorts of bonus content for listeners who have subscribed to our Patreon feed!

Somehow, we've stumbled into a bit of a family affair on this week's episode. Brothers Andre and Antonio will take on each other (as well as Will) in a pop culture battle of chain restaurants and calendars. In round one, our players will decipher the mashed up titles of movies or tv shows with popular American chain restaurants. Our players have a rocky start, but get a bit of a jumpstart once we flip open the calendar with a sequencing game: put the three movies or TV episodes in order of when they take place on a calendar. A stiff lightning round caps off a contentious game, but will the years of family beefs be squashed? If you are enjoying the episodes, be sure to check us out over on the show's Patreon page!

You don't need an encyclopedic knowledge of 90s Britpop to enjoy it, but it sure helps. ย  ๐Ÿ’ฏ The Reelz Channel Scorebreak: Home quality programming like Branson Taxi, Hollywood Hillbillies, and Steven Seagal: Lawman. Are those real shows? No one will ever know. ย  ๐Ÿฑ The original Pokedex did, indeed, have just 150 creatures. ย  ๐Ÿš• All three shows that Dan mentioned in the "Reelz Scorebreak" are, in fact, actual shows on Reelz. Yes, including Branson Taxi.
Frankly, my dear...it's a new episode! Shared surnames and classic movie quotes take center stage on this week's competition, where competitors Kate, Lauren, and Molly are ready for their close-ups. In round one, they'll call me Mister Tibbs as they identify the common surnames between notable characters and actors. Then, I'll be back to test their knowledge of quotes from the AFI's "100 Years...100 Movie Quotes" list, one word at a time. And while only one winner can be declared, this whole episode looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Don't forget to check out our Patreon.

S03.E06: Save The Cat

2021-03-2945:04

It's a barn-burner, this week! Will, Liz, and Julia all bring their A-games, but stay cool under pressure as they ponder how their champions would defuse a bomb. Once the wires are cut, they'll amp up the tension further in round one when they "save the cat." Literally. Microfragments of lyrics to title songs from popular movies make up round two. How few words will it take for our players to name that song? As always, it all comes down to the lightning round! Hey, did you know that we are also on Patreon?

The "Original Writer," because if you say it's Alan Moore, he'll sic a snake god or something on you. ย  ๐Ÿค” The Douglas Hofstadter scorebreak. The Douglas Hofstadter scorebreak is a complete and consistent system, and therefore cannot exclude paradoxes.
Get your bleep buttons ready, then throw them away for this week! That's because after Trip, Tanya, and Valerie figure out how their champions would deal with shenanigans from a mirror universe, they'll name movies by the sanitized-for-TV versions of iconic profane dialogue. Low culture yields to high culture in round two when we look at real-life, peer-reviewed academic studies of our favorite pop culture, and try to make sense of what those bigwigs in their ivory towers think they know about.

Karl Ove Knausgard: he's got issues with all you people, and now you're going to hear about them. ย  ๐Ÿฐ Yes, Jerry Zucker directed the King Arthur drama First Knight. No, we didn't know that, either. ย  ๐Ÿช† The two Barbie comics that ran for most of the 90s were Barbie and Barbie Fashion. ย  ๐Ÿˆ Somehow, NFL Superpro is only the second-worst football-based comic Marvel ever published

S03.E04: Eat The Rich

2021-03-1549:38

We're back in the Cellular Division this week with parentheticals and, meals for the wealthy. After Alexis, Dawn, and Emma's champions navigate the workday with a massive hangover, we identify songs and movies JUST from the parts of their titles that appear in parentheses. In round two, we'll flip the script on "eating the rich" with a quiz about the meals served to wealthy characters we love and love to hate.

The "spontaneous Barrett's Privateers singalong." Oh, Canada. ย  ๐ŸŒถ Virginia Potts is known as "Pepper" because basically, all Stan Lee characters have the same first and last initials. ย  ๐Ÿฆค The "rare songbirds" meal is a reference to Ortolan , the eating of which is considered so much a sin that diners cover their heads before consuming it to hide from the eyes of God. ย  ๐Ÿ˜ "Morgoth's Taint" is a real concept from "The Hobbit." Get your mind out of the gutter. ย  ๐Ÿ’ฏ The Fortnite Dances scorebreak. Fortnite Dances: it's what the children like! Wait, that was last year? It's sea shanties now? Is that what the last one was about?
Welcome back! It's the third match of season three! We've got Eric, Guy, and Joel to face some games that deal with extra letters and alternate perspectives! Round one asks how movies would change if you added a letter to the front of one of the words, and things get a little kooky. Then, round two keeps those titles the same but asks our players to name the movie based on a plot summary from the point of view of a supporting character.

Robot's unproduced script Just Plain Peter: The U of M Years about the early life of the famed actor. ย  ๐Ÿ’ฏ The Peter Graves scorebreak. Peter Graves did a lot of great work, but, most the important thing to know about him is that he attended the University of Minnesota. ย  ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง We make no apologies for referencing a "family man" in Chinatown. ย  ๐Ÿ’ฏ The Jared Leto in The Little Things scorebreak. Like his Golden Globe nomination, this scorebreak was bought and paid for by Jared Leto's publicist. ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฌ If you're wondering if Neil Diamond did blackface in the "Jazz Singer" remake... yeah.

S03.E02: A Goofy Movie

2021-03-0152:50

Season three continues as we move from the Cellular Division to the Appellate Division. Sean, Simone, and Randy have all brought their A-games for a brand new set of pop culture trivia challenges. The pedantic IMDb goofs section might not be for everyone, but it does provide the basis for today's first round where players identify a movie from its notable production mistakes.

It's the first match of season three. For the next nine weeks, you'll hear from 27 brand new listener contestants battling it out for the next title. We'll kick it off this week with Andrew, Conrado, and Alison. Round one will test their melodic memories for songs from 80s movies, but played in a bit of an anachronistic style. Round two gets us into both movies and TV, with a quiz involving titles in the possessive, but puts the focus elsewhere. It all closes out with a lightning round.
