Season five has begun! A brand new cabal of 27 pop culture know-it-alls have thrown their hats into the ring, and are ready to show their stuff! We’ll kick off the bracket with new players Nate and Seth, playing alongside Sean (returning from season one, and our music theatre special). We’ve got a tribute to the great trailer voiceover artist Don LaFontaine in round one before taking to the skies in round two as we test our players’ memories of movies and tv set on airplanes. And as (almost) always, it all comes down to the lightning round!
