    I guess Hannah isn’t really much of a fan of Tennessee Williams but still though VJ do you still remember what the title of the tv series having Perry mason as the character

      Yes, Lou, it was “Perry Mason.” (LOL!) I used to like to watch that show. First of all, I always liked Raymond Burr in whatever he was in, but on that show, I especially liked when he put the pressure on the culprit on the stand in the courtroom and if the person couldn’t take it any more, s/he would jump out of the chair and holler “All right, I did it!” idk why, but to me that was very funny. I’m quite sure I’ve seen more “Perry Mason” episodes than Andy Griffith in “Matlock.”

    I’m so surprised that only 1 person got Tennessee Williams.
    And they never heard of Perry Mason!

      After that GWTW thing last week, I can’t say I’m that surprised. :)

      I really don’t find it surprising that young people don’t watch shows that are in black and white. But anyhow, “Perry Mason” is currently No. 8 on Ranker’s list of Best Legal Dramas of All Time. Perry got more votes than “Better Call Saul”

      Rhonda, in hindsight I don’t think Viraj or Hannah may have been interested in taking courses in school that focused on literature. Furthermore, it might be a generation gap. The contestants, especially Viraj, seemed comfortable with the “Sci-Fi” category. I wasn’t familiar with one thing in that category.

      Jennifer was lucky in fj because that was her college major. Tonight’s game has shown that I need to factor in some different variables when making College Week predictions.

        Jacob, I just assumed that they were familiar with Tennessee Williams from high school. I remember having to read The Glass Menagerie, of course that was in the early 70’s. I am sure required reading is quite different these days, but still, you’d think Tennessee Williams would at least be discussed at some point.. And I also assumed that they were familiar with Marlon Brando’s classic role as Stanley. I didn’t know one thing in the Sci Fi category either, I’d never heard of any of those books.

      • VJ says:

        Viraj, at any rate, connected New Orleans with John Kennedy Toole.

        Remember that last DoaS FJ? Loren answered Tennessee Williams when it was Arthur Miller, the reverse of this match.
