This show makes me so angry!

If you convince yourself you are a pop culture nerd, and manage to make it into the bracket, how could you possibly get a single question wrong in a Ferris Bueller category? There is no excuse!

Never saw the movie, so I guess I'm not a Pop Cuture nerd.

Whoa, wait a second. Are there new episodes? I saw the premiere on Monday ... but they're airing more than once a week? Fill me in the schedule!

But it's like going into a sports trivia event, and not knowing who Jim Thorpe was. Or a Scrabble contest and not knowing all the words you can make with q but no u.

:e2smack: I guess they're running every night. Well, now I gotta play catch-up.

I kick ass on the tie-breakers.

I kick ass on the tie-breakers.Worst part for me (also non-hip-hop lyrics). It's always award nominees from some category. Like any awards are relevant.

Eh, see I'm not too good at the music lyrics in general.

It's funny that as I clicked on this thread, my husband flipped to this show, which neither of us had ever heard of. So the first category we just watched was all questions about Alec Baldwin. (we missed all of them) I had no idea he was such a pop culture icon. Disturbing...

Yep, I just found tonight's rerun. I think I got 3 on the Alec Baldwin category.

Wow. Just, wow.

We did better on albums and bogus bands...

I never heard of this show. Is it a series? Or just a one-time special?

I have no idea. It's awful. We can't look away.

See, I'm terrible at album names. But bogus bands was great.

Shadow, it's a pop culture quiz show from VH1 and Entertainment Weekly. Started on Monday, so I'm guessing they're running hour-long episodes every night for the next couple weeks. They ran it last summer, too, so this is the second go-around.

Whoa... spectacular round. Fragilay cleaned up in the Kevin Bacon category and is poised to defeat defending champs El Chupacabra. We're on the edge of our seats.

This show might end my marriage. Despite every protest, I am unable to hold back the answer to a question I know (and they are many or disturbingly obscure). I can't even pause Tivo to give my wife 3 seconds to consider.

She must bow before my supremacy!

My husband just looked at me and said "Season pass?"
My response was "That's the last thing we need."

Thank god I'm the only one who cares about stuff like this, or I would annoy everyone. Instead, I'm just considered the nerd.

ETA: Be careful with that season pass. Mine will pick up every episode, including the reruns, despite the setting.
