Showglobe of Trivia Tonight @ 8pm

You may have never seen 1980s medical drama St. Elsewhere (1982-1988) when it was originally run on NBC, but even if you haven't, you may be familiar with the ending.

If you are allergic to YouTube links,it turns out that the entire show was simply a figment of the imagination of Tommy Westphall, a severelt autistic child who was a semi-regular character on the show.


During the show's run, characters from there visited Boston wateringhole Cheers. Years later, Tom Fontana re-used some characters on Homicide: Life on the Streets.  Characters and references multiplied for years, until over 400 separate shows are linked in a fractured and tenuous web making them all part of Tommy's snowglobe of fantasy.

Several DC universe superhero shows were included in the "Westphall Hypothesis" including three of the following shows:


The Adventures of Superman (1952–1958)
Batman (1966-1968)
Lois and Clark (1993-1997)
Supergirl (2015–present)


TONIGHT'S Q:
Which one of these shows has not been shown to have been part of Tommy's fantasy?


ANSWERS IN PERSON by 8:00.


This is the SHOT and PRESTIGE question this week.
You'll see a slimmed down version of it on FB too.

7-11 Slurp Down some Trivia Tonight!


Hi!

If you were directed here from the article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, welcome!


(If you are one of the recurring irregulars, welcome too!)

Here's the short version of how it works - I ask a question and then play a song while you and your team come up with the answer. Each question is worth a number of points. At the end of the game (about 2 hours) the team with the most points wins.

Before the show, I sometimes post some facts (possibly related to the questions) and usually ask a question in the blog. Teams can bring their answers to the show, for a shot at winning a prize.
I also post a second question on Facebook - this one is for a chance to win a round of shots for your team. 

Today is Amazon Prime Day, which is supposed to have some great bargains.

It's also Free Slurpee Day at your local 7-11.


TONIGHT'S PRESHOW QUESTION:
What day does the convenience store chain celebrate Free Slurpee Day in Australia?









Answer IN PERSON after 7:50 for a lame prize a mint-in-box tabletop game.

Remember, this is the NO-BOOZE WINNING quiz.
