Quick bump, there are still a few answers missing. Deadline is tomorrow evening (for Europeans anyway).

Quite confident in my answers, though just for the 1-pointer in two of them...

I'm with stupid 2021 - Game 6, Round 5


The finale! As expected, this was a round with very varied answers - with one annoying exception -, but there were still some good points to be collected.

1. Name a critically acclaimed TV series.
Two answers stood out: Despite a universally hated final season, Game of Thrones still is the top answer for 5 points. Breaking Bad, incidentally with one of the most well-received finales, comes close with 4. No other series got more than one. How I Met Your Mother was named not for the series itself but for Cobie Smulders, so you can take an educated guess who that comes from Pfft

Spoiler
Game of Thrones5
Breaking Bad4
Chernobyl1
How I Met Your Mother1
The Simpsons1
The Sopranos1

2. Name an animated series other than The Simpsons.
3 answers gave you decent points. Family Guy and South Park were both named 5 times, 3 for Rick & Morty, just 1 for BoJack Horseman.


3. Name a sitcom.
When I originally thought of this question, I thought "I better exclude Friends in this." Unfortunately, I did not remember that when actually writing that question down. Friends was by far the top answer of this round with 10 mentions, unfortunately tanking the round of the four people who didn't take it. The Big Bang Theory was mentioned twice, HIMYM and Seinfeld once.


4. Name an actress or actor who is primarily associated with one TV series.
This was more of a curiosity question from my end, and it turned out to be one of the most diverse ever. Only 3 answers had even 2 points: Bryan Cranston for Malcolm in the Middle (or Breaking Bad I guess, you decide Pfft ), Charlie Sheen for Two and a Half Men and Jennifer Aniston for Friends, which you might have expected more people to go for, considering the prevalence of Friends in the previous question.

Other answers span from more modern examples like Jim Parsons to the iconic but maybe slightly forgotten Inger Nilsson as Pippi Longstocking. A special mention for William Roache, who holds the Guinness World Record for longest-serving male television star in a continuous role, which fits the question to a T, but who is unfortunately not all that well-known.

Charlie Sheen2

Bob Saget1
Inger Nilsson1
James Gandolfini1

Steve Carrell1

5. Name a TV series that is not from the US.
I feared this might be another overwhelming top answer for Doctor Who, and that was indeed the series mentioned the most, but only 4 times in total. La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) was the only other show mentioned twice, then a wide range of mostly British shows.

Standings

As mentioned earlier, if you didn't get Friends, you had no chance here, which immediately threw Marcovdw, jseadog, df_Trek and roturn out of contention, the latter two also for the overall standings. But on the other side, we actually did get a perfect round: by jandal7! Not an easy accomplishment with this type of question. DarkWolf and ivaneurope fall short by 3 points, which dovetails nicely into the GC ...

... since as you may recall, ivaneurope and Ollfardh entered the final round tied atop the overall standings. And it remained very close. As the answers trickled in, they repeatedly moved ahead of each other and back again, but in the end, ivaneurope took the crown by a single point. GoT over Breaking Bad and 2 points for Charlie Sheen were just barely enough against Ollfardh's 2 points for Casa de Papel. Congrats ivaneurope!

It should also not fall by the wayside though that with this strong round, jandal7 came pretty close and cemented his third place, just 3 points off the lead.

Thanks everyone for participating! I'm happy that no one missed even a single round and we had a close fight at the top until the very end. Generally also happy with the questions, eventhough there were a few that were too top-heavy. But such is the game.

As usual, ivaneurope is now free to start the next round Smile

Shoutout to kandesbunzler and jseadog for mentioning The Sopranos and Schitt’s Creek. Grin <3

Only used Friends and Jim Parsons with my head but the latter didn’t help at all. Pfft Could’ve gone with James Gandolfini there and have a better score with my heart!

You really should have, I needed that point. Only one vote for Tony Soprano makes me sad. As well as this forum choosing GoT over Breaking Bad. But congrats Ivan and thanks for hosting, really nice sets of questions this round!
Changed my sig, this was getting absurd.
 
DarkWolf
I am always trying to use my head instead of following my heart, but I am not succeeding every time. I also believe I am not intending to succeed in that. Smile
This was a redemption round for me after the 4th one.
I had a lot of fun with this game. Thank you for hosting it!
 
roturn
Lacked the time and knowledge in this topic clearly.

Never had considered Friends to be honest as I barely ever have watched it and same I guess with Doctor Who.

Thanks for hosting this! Nice couple of rounds, where I faded towards the end.

Ah well, did everything I could there but not quite enough. Still can't believe how comfortable it would have been if I'd picked Tokyo but I'm sure everyone has an answer like that that they missed at some point Grin Congrats ivan, was a fun ding-dong battle between a fair few people across the rounds. And thanks cunego for another great set, really enjoyed them Smile

Looking forward to the next game! Feel like I'm getting better and better at this now I'm doing it seriously for a few games Pfft

How on earth did I forget Friends?

Possible the worst game ever for me, things were decent until round two but then I subconsciously decided to go for low scores apparently.

I'm with stupid 2021 - Game 7, Round 1 Results

Alright, the first round was a vexillology-based one, let's see how our contestants fared

1. Name a country/territory other than Australia and New Zealand that has the Union Jack on its flag
Awkwardly the question didn't exclude...the Union Jack itself. You'd think that the UK flag would be on top, but nope - it only got 3 points. Instead, the Pacific country of Fiji got the most points with 5 contestants giving Fiji as an answer. Other answers include Bermuda (got 2 guesses), the endangered country of Tuvalu and Hawaii who oddly enough have the Union Jack on it's flag despite never having connections with the British Empire.
Spoiler
Fiji - 5
United Kingdom - 3
Bermuda - 2
Tuvalu - 1
Hawaii - 1


2. Name a country/territory that has changed its flag over the last 100 years
This was a really contested battle, but in the end Germany came on top with 3 guesses. Canada, South Africa and Libya got 2 guesses each. Myanmar, Russia and the United States (yes, the US of A has changed their flag by adding 2 stars for Alaska and Hawaii being the new states in 1960) got only one guess each
Spoiler
Germany - 3
Canada - 2
Libya - 2
South Africa - 2
Myanmar - 1
Russia - 1
United States - 1


3. Name a country/territory that has only one of the following colors - red, white, blue
Red, white and blue are the most commonly used colors on flags, but what if you had tho choose only one of these and any other colors? Well, our contestants gave one definitive answer - the German flag got 6 guesses. Other answers include Sweden with 2 (only Germany and Sweden got more than 1 guess) and 1 each for Barbados, China, Spain and Belgium
Spoiler
Germany - 6
Sweden - 2
Barbados - 1
China - 1
Spain - 1
Belgium - 1


4. Name a country/territory that has a cross on its flag
Well, the most obvious answer here was the Swiss flag with 6 guesses. 3 guesses got England/United Kingdom (well, 2 said England while one guessed the Union Jack and I've decided to merge them together since the St. George cross is part of the UK flag anyway). Denmark got 2 points while one lowly point gets the only contestant who said Sweden.
Spoiler
Switzerland - 6
England/United Kingdom - 3
Denmark - 2
Sweden - 1


5. Name a country/territory whose flag consists of only two colors
Most flags are tricolors, but there are many countries who opt for bicolor flags. And the St. George flag of England got on top with 4 points. Denmark and Switzerland give 2 points, while 1 point give Spain, Ukraine, Canada and Sweden
Spoiler
England - 4
Denmark - 2
Switzerland - 2
Spain - 2
Ukraine - 1
Canada - 1
Sweden - 1
