    40:50

    Season two continues with a special guest appearance! New players Aaron and Claire face off against returning player and somtimes-acting-scoremaster Tara Ariano! A decidedly adult round of My Champion gives way to a very kid-oriented round one, with players guessing a pop culture property from an excerpt of a Little Golden Book associated with it. Round two gets sinister and complicated with a quiz about movie conspiracy theories, before we take it home with the lightning round!Support Us On Patreon🥇 Become a patron and get special perks from ad-free episodes to full bonus matches!Follow Us🐦 @USAQuizShow on Twitter📷 @USAQuizShow on Instagram🧑‍💻 Our website is USAQuizShow.comEpisode Notes🗒 Brackets and full episodes notes can be found on this episode's page on USAQuizShow.com🖖 Other Star Trek: TOS Little Golden Books include Too Many Tribbles and I am Mr. Spock.🛳 Weirdly, "Albert" is not the name of the Skipper character played by Dwayne Johnson in the recent movie version.

The Five Cadam Scorebreak: We took one cadam off to honour the Hebrew God whose scorebreak this is.👽 If our version of The X-Files mythology doesn't make a lot of sense, well, neither does the mythology of the X-Files.🤷‍♀️ Unfortunately, the movie The Parallax View is not at all related to the Slavoj Žižek book of the same name. No rehabilitation of dialectical materialism here!🧬 This score break is brought to you by … The Science Guy Exposition Dump! The Science Guy Exposition Dump! Be it a professor, an animated DNA strand or some kook in a lab coat, the Science Guy is here to help, standing by to lecture important plot points while gobsmacked characters stare into space and ask all the questions the audience has. No plot contrivance is too outlandish when you have the Science Guy to explain everything and get your story moving.🦹🏻‍♀️ Wait, how do you pronounce the name of Batman villain "Ra's Al Ghul"?💣 Lindsey Lohan's I Know Who Killed Me is considered a debacle of the first order (9% on Rotten Tomatoes), but there have been some attempts at reconsideration.📈 Blumhouse's low cost business model has received a lot of attention in the industry and financial press.📷 Follow...

    S05.E01: Just Plane Crazy

    41:39

    Season five has begun! A brand new cabal of 27 pop culture know-it-alls have thrown their hats into the ring, and are ready to show their stuff! We'll kick off the bracket with new players Nate and Seth, playing alongside Sean (returning from season one, and our music theatre special). We've got a tribute to the great trailer voiceover artist Don LaFontaine in round one before taking to the skies in round two as we test our players' memories of movies and tv set on airplanes.

The sacrificial chicken in the market in the Counter-Strike map 'Italy: Bock! Bock!✈️ Oceanic Airlines has also been featured in many shows, in the form of re-used footage from "Executive Decision," including episodes of "Diagnosis: Murder" and "JAG."🐍 It's a common trope, but reptile vision isn't actually based on movement.🪦 The plane crash in "Final Destination" is especially gruesome because it was based on the real life crash of TWA Flight 800, and even uses footage from that real life crash, as well as the detail of a high school French club being on board.☀️ The pilot episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is called "The Gang Gets Racist," though some argue that a earlier short film should be considered as a pilot.📅 The "Du Jour" Scorebreak.

Books store👖 Dan wasn’t kidding about Kidz Bop changing "Ripped Jeans/Skin was showin’" to "Ripped Jeans/Smile was showing" in the pretty tame Call Me Maybe🥤 “Stop, wait a minute / Fill my cup, put some water in it” is from the Kidz Bop version of Uptown Funk. Somehow, the reference to Skippy peanut butter is in both versions.🦕 The Life Scorebreak… Life, it, uh, finds a way💃 Wilson, Keppel and Betty (well, Bettys – they went through several) were famous for a sand dance (they threw sand on the stage) where they pretended to be Egyptian. That might sound a little thin for a famous act, but they were well known enough to have infuriated Goebbels.🪶 Does Every Breath You Take actually draw from the 1836 Robert Browning Poem Porphyria's Lover? You be the judge!🎞 The Last Guardian Scorebreak: The Last Guardian. That trailer was amazing, I just can’t wait until it finally comes out.
