Test Your TV Knowledge in Trivia!

Next round of Trivia is up.

Hey Maniacs, your next round of Maniacal Weekly Trivia is up and running over in our new Trivia section. Just letting you know and also going to remind you all once again that the answers must be precise in wording according to IMDB's listing. In other words, if a still is from the old Star Trek tv series, go by what IMDB has it listed... (Which is just Star Trek.). Don't write TOS, Star Trek: Tos etc... Of course, that's assuming there is a Star Trek still in there.

As always, do not put answers below in this comment section.

Let's see if our Movie experts can put their TV knowledge to the test. Good luck!

Glad to see you guys fixed some of the cheating by removing the answers for people that hadn't logged on to play.

Damn, I suck at this game.

And the answer to #1 is:

Three guys who have never been in my kitchen.

How do we report mistakes on the answers? Round 2 had one of their answers spelled differently then the title of the actual movie, so I got marked wrong.

This whole trivia thing is a bunch of crap with the cheating and the game not being worked on to the point that it's solid and fair...So now we have to answer t.v. screen shots? They need to keep them both separate, movie shots and t.v. shots that is...I don't watch t.v. thus find myself not really caring about this game now, of course I'm sure they don't give a rat's ass about one persons complaints...Well, what can you do, right?

mlaforcer, I agree. The obvious cheating has pretty much ruined this game for me. I guess there are a few hard up people out there who feel the need to cheat to win a few small prizes.

I appreciate the effort to have the games, which should be fun, but Mania is letting the cheating take the fun out.

And the names part, for instance, IMDB has listings for Deathproof, as well as Grindhouse, which both feature the scene used. So the frustration is obvious.

The easy solution to the cheating part, is to not reveal the answers in any way, until the next round, much like the test run did.

Unfortunately, the only solution for the spelling/title problem, is to have human involvement from Mania. I'm not sure if they want to put the time into it.

LOL #4! Was that from Clavin on Jeopardy?
#9 - mlaforcer  [Apr 10 2008, 10:28 pm CDT]
I do not know one of those shots so my percentage just seriously dipped...I guess I am going to have to create a new profile, play the game on that and then get the answers and come back to my original profile and get 100%, like I believe some people to be doing, nothing wrong with doing that, right? Cheating that is, I mean if I can live with myself and look in the mirror without acknowledging the fact that I am a piece of sh t and all should be just fine.

Save me Jebus!
