S02.E04: The Joy Luck Division 2nd Eliminations

Extra Special Editions

The creepy head of Jamie Foxx Spider-man DVD set.

DVD Box Sets and franchise chronologies are at the center of our games this week with three contestants from the /Filmcast!

We are pleased to welcome David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, and Jeff Cannata for a week of movie trivia.

They’ll identify movies from descriptions of their extravagant DVD box sets (some of which are pretty wild) before testing their math skills alongside their memories of where movies fall within their particular long-running franchises.

They’ll top it all off with a lightning round that’s intense as they come!

I didn't get an Emmy
After more than one shot
My films did worse than studios had thought
TV's my real game
And I did my best
Not at a funeral,
But with brothers in the West

David Schwimmer: He was nominated for two Emmys, but didn't win either. He was the lead in a number of films after the initial success of Friends, but they generally did poorly. One of those films was The Pallbearer, about which, the less said, the better. His most acclaimed tv work? Band of Brothers about soldiers fighting on the "Western" front in WWII.
