    8/10 - pretty sad for someone that watched about 7 hours of tv a day as a teenager.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Six seasons and a movie!

    Only 1 that I hadn't heard of, and my guess was wrong. What's the deal with bullfighters, anyway???

    Not bad...but missed the Green Berets question. Actually, I've never even seen the movie.

    The title of one of the questions was 'the seven dwarves in snow white', and then the question was "what movie were the seven dwarves in?" Gee, that's a thinker.

    I'm in last place so far today! The world is topsy turvy! Nothing in life makes sense anymore! NOOOOO!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    For a person who is not a movie nut, I'm proud to say that I scored a 6/10. I hadn't seen any of the movies that were queried in the quiz!

    However, I'm back to the end of the line, as I'm in last place for now...
