I've listened to all the episodes so far. My favorite part has been the contributions of house musician Jonathan Coulton
, who I'd somehow never heard of before. I hope they continue to write rounds that take advantage of his talents -- a good example is a round where he sang parts of the song Flagpole Sitta
with new lyrics giving clues that indicated a country of the world.
This is gonna come off as a little snobby, but I feel like they could up the difficulty level a little bit. I mean, I understand, they don't want a ton of questions to go dead, that would be ugly. For me, it seems like there's not quite the same "learning factor" as Jeopardy! (or Win Ben Stein's money, for an example of a "fun/humorous" show). Others may have different impressions.
Another small gripe.. can they spring for an actual lockout buzzer system? Are they seriously just using like... those hotel check-in bells?
Can't believe they played this song
on NPR! Haha, amazing!(Don't click if you don't want to be spoiled as to the most recent "mystery guest").
