S01.E05: Delta Tau Chi Division 2nd Eliminations

Johannes Bassoon’s “Minor Quibbles, Major Qualms”

J. Bassoon created altered TV show themes.

It’s time to identify the altered TV show themes our resident composer has created when he confused his major and his minor keys up. After that, it’s time to browse some very silly pieces of very real pop culture merch — and pay all the respect to the vociferous fans of a certain animated series.

Our talented combatants Elenore, Mark, and Ilan have a bit of a fishy start, but all’s well that ends well… and the ending? Well, we’ll leave that to y’all to discover. Speaking about endings, don’t forget to stick around at the tail end for the At-Home Version riddle for your chance to name a score break!

Questions about actor Nicole Mary Kidman

It’s never that easy for a tough lady cop,
But she rises and rises through rankings nonstop.
She drinks, sleeps around, some of this, some of that,
And here in America, she’ll just have a hat.

Prime Suspect: In the American version of Prime Suspect, the lead character was still a drinker, and still had bad relationships, but rather than casting a realistically aged woman, they put Maria Bello in a silly hat

BADCATS, the Aaron Spelling produced TV series with Michelle Pfeiffer, is an acronym for "Burglary Auto Detail, Commercial Auto Thefts." It also featured Jimmie Walker and Vic Morrow, and was cancelled with 4 of its 10 episodes left unaired. Of those, we'd really like to see Episode 9, "Death Car."
