We did this almost exactly two years ago and people complained because it was on weekend. Apparently, some of you were doing stuff and couldn't participate. Whiny, whining whiners!
Same rules as last time.
-Questions have to be about TV - not about movies or movie versions of TV shows.
-You're on your honor; no Googling for answers.
-Whoever answers a question gets to ask the next question.*
-In the event two people answer (and ask a question) at the same time, you get to choose which question to tackle.
-Answer and ask as many questions as you like; but only one at a time.
Here's an easy one to get you all started.
Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) was going to leave Star Trek after one season. Why did she change her mind?
*If Jim asks a question and you're stumped, it's worth trying "Poolu See Bumgumba" for an answer!
She changed her mind because Dr. Martin Luther King asked her to. Her role on that show - a black woman in leadership - was unique and Dr. King convinced her of that.
I was supposed to ask the next question, wasn't I?
What better-than-acting job did Masi Oka perform prior to being cast as Hiro Nakamura on the show Heroes?
Was she a restaurant re-reviewer? Only assigned to check on restaurants that already got five-star reviews? Just to make sure?
Eh...didn't think so.
Um, Nathan? Masi Oka is a man.
Drag queen five-star restaurant re-reviewer? (I only watched the first season.)
Hmm... don't know the answer, but any job would be better than acting on "Heroes". ;)
I'm ruling that Janiece has to give us the answer and toss out question #2.
(This is going swimmingly, isn't it?)
Does this mean I win the Internet?
The answer is: He was a geek at ILM.
You win one corner of the internet. From now on, in perpetuity, you'll receive 1/100th of 1 cent every time someone mentions Zombie Walruses. It's a small but valuable niche.
Now what about the next question?
And if Janiece won't ask another question, the floor is now open to the rest of you.
I'll ask another one.
What was McGyver's first name?
That is correct Anonymous. You get to ask the next question.
Or anybody else who shows up first can ask the next question.
For gawdssake...somebody ask a question!
Just so you don't have a cow over there...
Which former child star just got engaged to her babydaddy on her 29th birthday?
1. Thank you A.J. I was feeling totally unloved here.
2. Haven't got the slightest idea.
I'll leave the question up until mid-morning and see if anyone else has a stab at it before I exercise my GoogleFu.
A.J., thanks for trying, but I deem you question illegal. I knuckled under and Googled it, only to find that you must be speaking about Natalie Portman. While she does have one appearance on Sesame Street and another on The Simpsons, I think we can all agree that she's a Movie Star...not a TV star.
(But then again, this whole exercise seems to have fizzled anyway, right?)
Nathan, A.J. asked what child star, etc., not what TV child star, etc. And since Portman's big debut in a feature film occurred when she was when she was 12 or 13, I'd say she qualifies as a child star.
If you'd like a trivia question that I would've thought was too easy (but maybe apparently not): what was the name of the movie Portman debuted in?
Eric, please see the rulz:
Questions have to be about TV - not about movies or movie versions of TV shows.
By extension, the questions should relate to TV actors (or actors appearing on TV). Portman doesn't count. And her debut was in The Professional.
A.J.'s question isn't illegal. I've looked up the answer since I don't know it (haven't known the answer to any of them actually) so I'm not answering. She'd definitely from TV and Nathan I think you must have skipped the birthday part of the question.
Everyone's against me on my own blog!
Twenty comments so far, and you're bitchin'? Whaaa, whaaa, whaaa...
Nathan, you need to work on your Google kung fu skillz. It's not Natalie Portman.
As for Jenny, despite looking up the answer, I think she should at least get points for reading comprehension. :)
Oooooooooh! Jodie Sweetin (Full House). You win on all counts. Jodie Sweetin is about as Television as you can get!
I guess I was leaving out the "birthday" part...Portman is 29 until June; is pregnant; is engaged to her babydaddy.
Eric, You're still guilty of making up new rules. As penance, you must nurse an infant pygmy marmoset until weaning without suffering injury. Extra points if you can teach it to glaze the Mango-lard-glazed Bison. Lots of extra points.
Done and done. They grow up fast, those bison-mango-lard-glazing pygmy marmosets. Anyway, I just was going along with the Portman thing because that was your wrong answer.
You want TV trivia? Fine. Which Doctor offered to let his then-real-life wife eat him on a classic British SF serial? And who is their real-life daughter recently rumored to be engaged to?
I have no idea but I'm betting the show is Dr. Who. Or maybe The Prisoner?
No, and no. Though their daughter has also appeared on Doctor Who in her own right.
Waaaait a second... Why did you punish Eric for defending your wrong answer?
I think you owe him an apology.
1. I punished Eric for defending what he, mistakenly, believed was an illegal question. And I wouldn't apologize to him even if I was in the wrong...which I am not, not, NOT. (Only mistaken about what the question seemed to be which is TOTALLY different...'cause I say it is.)
2. Why are all the internet people being mean to me today?
Since he seemed to be agreeing that the answer was Natalie Portman, the question that would have yielded that as a correct answer would have been wrong. But he defended the mistaken question with sneaky lawyer tricks so the Judge (me) opened a can-o-whoopass on him.
Lawyers have no asses and my trivia question(s) remain unanswered. Apparently I win the Internet.
I plan on selling it back to Facebook and retiring to Disneyland.
