    The TV series is also quite good as well. As for the movie, I didn’t think it was that bad, I actually enjoyed it a bit.

    I could rag on that film for year without repetition.

    Not bad. I managed to get 2, 5, 6, 9, 13, 14, and 17. Soooo…7 right.

    Not good enough to take down Trekkie though.

    Still, it puts you in third place for the moment.

    I’m currently working on the next quiz and I’m expanding the geeky-ness to include a few more subjects, so if there are any topics you’d like to see in the quiz, let us know and I’ll try to incorporate then in to 20 questions (obviously keeping with the core of Marvel, DC, Star Wars and Trek and Doctor Who).
    In the mean time, this quiz is still open for 2 more days, so lets see if you can beat Trekkie’s high score.

    High Fantasy Novel Questions would be nice

    Two quick example questions off the top of my head:

    In the Dragonlance War of the Lance trilogy what was the Name of Tasslehoff’s Famous Uncle?

    In The Wheel Of Time Series who are “The People Of The Dragon”?

    I’m not familiar with either of those series, but I will do some research and I’ll see what I can come up with. I’m already incorporating questions on one particular fantasy novel that everyone will know.

    I got 2, 11, 14, 16 and 19, so five in total. Not bad considering I know next to nothing about super heroes.

    I got 1, 2, all 4 answers for 3, 7, 8, 10*, 11, 16, and 18 (but only got the minimum 9 villains, so no bonus points for me). So 9 points. Ashamed to say I couldn’t remember the answers to 9 and 14, which I should have known. Also, I messed up on my count on 13, and missed a movie, which I should have also gotten right if I was thinking clearly.

    *In the book, if I remember correctly, Ford mistakenly believed, prior to arriving, that cars were the dominant species on Earth, so he named himself after a model of a car, thinking the name would be nicely inconspicuous.

    @Myro- I couldn’t remember how exactly it was phrased in the book/ TV show/ Radio show, I think it was the best selling model in the year he arrived on earth.
