S01.E07: Sabor de Soledad Division 3rd Eliminations

Half & Halftones

Comic book crossovers

It’s a cavalcade of comic book crossovers and pop culture rhymes in this week’s competition! After a rousing round of My Champion, Bobby, Stephen and Susanna test their knowledge of crazy comic book crossover events that brought together unlikely characters and properties.

Then, it’s on to a rhyming game, where from a mashed up description, players parse out the two rhyming TV show and movie titles that have been combined.

All that plus a Lightning Round and the At-home Version riddle for you to solve!

Production Note: Per a listener tweet to us we had an edited error in R2 Q15. There’s was wrong last name given as a clue. We did two takes of that question in the moment during taping but Dave pulled a Homer and edited out the wrong one. A second version of the audio has been released (Aug 31, 3:30pm ET) with this edit correction in addition to fixing 3 seconds of audio drop out around 24:30.

On this show we play Pyramid but not with Dick Clark and randos,
In fact, some of our players turned into commandos.
Did it work out? In the end, were they happy?
The new home is nice, but the narrative's sappy.

Battlestar Galactica: "Pyramid" is a fictional sport on the 2000s revival of Battlestar Galactica, and bears no resemblance to the classic game shows of a similar name. In an early season of the show, a team of pyramid players on Earth turned into commandos. The ending of the revival was, indeed, sappy, and didn't make a great deal of sense, though it was, perhaps, emotionally satisfying for some viewers.

Episode Notes

⛽️
Gasoline Alley is the longest running comic strip in the US, and since its characters age in real time, the lead character, Walt, is now 116 years old.
