    Let’s see: I got 2 (but not the bonus), 5 (abcd; are these 1/4 point each?), 7, 9, and 10. Quite pleased with myself that I knew the answer to 7, despite the fact that I’ve been watching Doctor Who regularly for only a little over a month (a mix of both classic and new episodes), and horribly disappointed that I didn’t get 3 right (I’ve actually played Pokemon Blue through a couple times, but I somehow got mixed up on which one was the hidden Pokemon that could only be accessed through cheats).

    So that would make it 5 points, unless the questions in 5 are worth 1 point each, in which case I got 8.

    Atomic Punk: I actually have a friend that still knows the Poke’rap. Not me, though.

    I got 5 (5, 7, 8 I knew definitively. 9 & 10 were correct educated guesses. I was so close on 3, I have the poster with the Kanto pokemon at home, along with the pokerap somewhere)

    9 for 13. JR19759, how about a super-bonus to anyone who can name the first 150 Pokémon?

    I’ll give you two if you can name them in order. And that goes for anyone.

    Should have made 5 a bit clearer, getting all four is equal to one point.

    I felt I did pretty well this week. Got 1, 2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11(abcd), 14, 15, 16, 17 (bcd), 18, and 19 (but not the bonus). Sadly, I got 20 wrong because I was sure that the line was spoken earlier, and in a way I was right.
    Approaching the Death Star for the first time in the Millennium Falcon, Luke does say “I have a very bad feeling about this.” Which was my answer.

    So 12.75

    Whoo hoo! For a moment, I reclaimed my title as King of Worthless Knowledge. And #11 Part C coined the phrase.

    And for about 6 months here, there was a place called “Milliways.” Not on the radar, but while it lasted, the name amused. No “Pan-Galactic Gargle-Blasters,” just good old-fashioned rum and cherry shots.

    Sorry sort of forgot about this. Looks like Vampyrist won that last one.

    Going to try something different this time. I’ve made some categories and lists of answers, you get a point for every answer you can get off of each list. There are 360 available answers, so this should really test people. I will be frankly amazed if anyone gets full marks, in fact I’m willing to bet no-one will get above half marks. But I’ll hopefully be proved wrong.
    Ok, so: Name As Many As You Can Of The:

    1) Current and former members of the Justice League
    2) Fantastic Four Stand In Members (Not Mr Fantastic, Invisable Woman, Human Tourch Or The Thing)
    3) Pokemon Version Mascots (Any Pokemon That Has Appeared On The Cover Of A Pokemon Nintendo Gameboy Game)
    4) Doctor Who Companions (3+ Appearances, not including K-9)
    5) Dwarves From The Hobbit
    6) Sonic The Hedgehog Allies
    7) Named Imperial Officers From The Original Star Wars Movies
    8) Races who appear in 3 or more Star Trek series (i.e. The Original series, The Next Generation and Deep Space 9)
    9) American Comic Book Based Superhero Movies (Up To 23/04/13)
    10) Members Of Spider-Man’s Adversary Group, The Sinister Six

    Good Luck

    This one looks complicated. I’m going to need time to try to devote on this one. And I’ll have to write my answers down or I’m not sure I’ll remember all of them.

    Maybe after work tonight.

    I got 64 out of 360.
    Not too good, I’m afraid, but I did get all the dwarves. Got them memorized when I was seven Laugh

    Also, I came up with a couple of films that you didn’t list:

    Wonder Woman (1974)
    Captain America (1979)
    Captain America II: Death Too Soon (1979)
    Darkman (1990)
    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
    Wonder Woman (2009)

    Those were all TV movies/ straight to video, whilst Darkman wasn’t a comic book character prior to the film so it wasn’t eligible.
    Though you do get a round of applause for completing one of the categories.

    The Phantom (1996)
