Music after 2000, a big zero.

That last round??? We would have had more chance had we have been asked her sisters middle name!!

We clearly need to read up on actresses from 1900 👀

I could give myself a few ½ points for knowing the artist (singular) and the xylophone - even then; still think I got maybe 1 1/2 right? Pffffft. This is when quizzing isn’t fun. I know I’m always pulling up the rear not being a “pro” like you lot. I’m a general knowledge / music / geography / school of life kinda guy. But this one? Off the charts mate!

Still trying to figure out what Mel Gibson had to do with that first question in round 4. All I can say is thank goodness James does most of the rounds on this quiz (we do like Augustin from Ecuador though)!

.5-3-3-1 for a total of 7.5

Echoing what Booze Baron wrote: not fun and questionable trivia, at best.

One of our best rounds was on vegetable oil. Seriously?!? Seems like round two is getting more and more random. How about a round on toe nails?

And that last round—-actress from 1900?!?!?

For a trivia pod cast which is usually fun—-this one wasn’t.

2.5-4-3-2 for 11.5. Glad I wasn't the only one that struggled this week!

I've thought about it and I should also add: I think James does an absolutely brilliant job bringing us 20-25 fresh questions a week. Any less diligent and I don't think such an effort would be possible, especially when there are nearly 900 episodes in the can.

PodQuiz is a highlight of my day. It's okay to be frustrated - I call it "being competitive" - but I remain grateful for James' continued work on the program. Keep it up!

Music post 2000 is difficult, post 2010 and we have next to no chance. Only thing saving us was knowing #1 and placing the year of that movie.

8 (2-3-2-1) concur with GoaWay about music, our 12 year old is the only reason music round wasn't a goose egg.
