  7. 7. 1. The second week of October 1994 was a very busy week at the box office, with movies such as Jurassic Park, Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, amongst an array of other films. Due to this, Tom Hanks could not portray the role of X in the movie Y, due to scheduling conflicts with Forrest Gump. However, Hanks did appear in the same director’s next film, The Green Mile, which has a special connection with the movie in question. X? Y?

The results: Jordan led all scorers with 44 points on perfect 22-for-22 shooting.

  10. 10. Space Jam
  11. 11. 3. The episode “Garage Sale” of Season 7 of The Office (US) has all the employees of Dunder Mifflin sell some of their personal belongings as a part of a … you guessed it, Garage Sale. Oscar, one of the employees, is revealed to be selling a lot of DVDs of a certain other TV Show X, which first aired in 1998. Oscar reveals that after he came out of the closet, his friends just assumed that he was a fan of the show X, which still remains one of the most prominent TV Shows with gay lead characters. ID X.
  12. 12. Will and Grace
  13. 13. 4. Charley Douglass, an American Sound Engineer is responsible for this development, when it comes to TV Shows. The development in question here, is something that was more prominent during the early era of pre-recorded TV, however it is something that still exists in modern Television Shows, although the mainstream popularity has gone down quite a bit. This technique was helpful during camera transitions, smoothing out an era of live broadcast television to a pre-recorded era, and even make both TV Actors and audience back at home feel more comfortable reacting to the performances. Recently, however, this technique has come under a lot of flack, with critics claiming that it is an easy way to force audience reaction. What technique?
  14. 14. Laff Box/Canned Laughter
  15. 15. 5. "As fourth grader Stan Marsh composes a song for his new death metal band, Crimson Dawn, his father Randy announces to the family that he plans to travel to China to expand the family's Tegridy Farms marijuana business." This is the plot of an episode in the 22nd season of South Park which led to the show being illegal in China, for obvious reasons. Coming at the time of NBA controversies in China, and the Hong Kong protest, it wasn't really a shock the backlash the show received from the authoritarian Chinese Gov. The name of the episode is a brilliant pun based on the plot and the consequences that the creators were sure it would bring about. What pun?
  16. 16. Band in China
  17. 17. 6. Person X about the premiere of the show Z: “None of those characters were software engineers. Software engineers are more helpful, thoughtful, and smarter. They’re weird, but not in the same way” Person Y responding to person X: “Yeah, but, and I’m not gonna name names, but if the billionaire power players don’t get the joke, it’s because they’re not comfortable being satirized. Like, I’m sorry, but you could tell everything was true. You guys do have bike meetings, motherfucker.” X, Y, Z?
  18. 18. X - Elon Musk Y - TJ Miller, Z - Silicon Valley
  19. 19. 7. "___ ____ _____" refers to a controversial change made to a scene in the movie Star Wars: A New Hope (1977), in which X is confronted by the bounty hunter Greedo in the Mos Eisley cantina. In the original version of the scene, X shoots Greedo dead. Later versions are edited so that Greedo attempts to fire at X first. Director George Lucas altered the scene to give X more justification for acting in self-defense. Many fans and commentators oppose the change, feeling it weakens their character. FITB.

  43. 43. 1. X is a type of television serial drama or soap opera produced primarily in Latin America. The etymology of the word is quite straightforward, and is derived from combining the two words in Spanish. Xs are known to be over the top dramas (imagine your typical Hindi serial) however they have a very short run (don’t imagine your typical Hindi serial). X is also the name of a TV Show which aired on NBC from 2015-2016 also known as Hot and Bothered. Jane the Virgin fans would recognise the term X from the occupation of Jane’s dad. Gimme X.

  45. 45. 2. This is a tweet by Lin Manuel Miranda of The Hamilton Musical fame, during the aftermath of a pretty prominent event that happened during May of 2018. The event in question left fans of a certain entity across the globe in shock and pain alike, and amongst the pain arose a lot of famous people who now apparently had a cause to unite for. It all eventually panned out perfectly, and within a 2 days, things were back to normal, if not better. What event?
  46. 46. FOX Cancelling Brooklyn Nine-Nine and NBC subsequently picking it up
  47. 47. 3. Pictured here is Ed O' Neill, from Married with Children and Modern Family fame, reading the same prop newspaper in episodes of Modern Family 20 years after Married with Children. However, this isn't just done as an homage or an easter egg, and these aren't the only two instances of this newspaper popping up in Pop Culture. Why is it so prominently used?
  48. 48. Cleared for broadcasting, no copyright violations
  49. 49. 4. Milo Murphy’s Law is an animated TV Show created by Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh. The show follows the life of a boy, cursed with The Murphy’s Law, causing everything that can go wrong around him, to go wrong. Each episode follows the exploits of Milo and his friends, as they try to remedy the effects of this Law, while two different characters go about a side plot, which often ends up being disturbed indirectly by Milo and his gang.The show exists in the same universe as a different popular TV Show X, which was created by the same people, and has the same rough outline. Both shows are known to have a lot of running gags and catchphrases used in every episode. Id X.
  50. 50. Phineas and Ferb
  51. 51. 5. X and Y Critics about movie X, in 2003: "A bona-fide classic of midnight cinema, ______'s misguided masterpiece subverts the rules of filmmaking with a boundless enthusiasm that renders such mundanities as acting, screenwriting, and cinematography utterly irrelevant. You will never see a football the same way again." "Borat trying to do an impression of Christopher Walken playing a mental patient." a mix of "Tennessee Williams, Ed Wood, R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet".
  52. 52. 5. X and Y Critics about movie Y, in 2017, nominated for Oscars: "As a director, Franco succeeds beautifully at bringing coherence to chaos, a word that accurately describes the making of this modern midnight-movie phenomenon.” Y is a surprisingly poignant and charming movie-about-a-movie that explores the creative process with unexpected delicacy."
  53. 53. X - The Room Y - The Disaster Artist
  54. 54. 6. Apparently, Ronald Reagan was amused by _______'s disbelief that an actor like him could turn out to be the President of the United States of America. He asked the projectionist to stop and replay this scene in question from the movie X released in 1985, 3 years after Reagan was elected into office. Even though there was some tension related to the filming of this scene, everything turned out to be great as Reagan actually got a "real kick out of it". He even quoted a dialogue from the movie in the subsequent State of the Union address in 1986 - "Where we're going we don't need roads". X?
  55. 55. Back to the Future
  56. 56. 7. X is an incredibly famous, and relatively young, actor, director, writer, comedian, and most recently, a musician. X has won the Emmy, Golden Globes, and Grammy, during his career. However, X is more popularly recognisable with his musician stage name YZ. Y and Z seem like two random words stuck together, and in fact, they kind of are. When asked about the origin of the name, he had the following to say: “We were all hanging out, chilling and drinking and then we were like, 'Oh, Wu-Tang name generator, let's put our name in.' And we're putting them all in, and they're all funny and stuff, and then mine came up and I was like, 'You guys, it's not funny anymore. This is something big.' I just really liked it.”
  57. 57. X - Donald Glover Y, Z - Childish Gambino
