TLO Trivia Night Recap: True Detective Edition!


Well, you cheap fools went and crashed HBO GO last night because everyone logged in with my HBO GO pass (You’re welcome all of OKC) to catch the last episode of the best television show since Breaking Bad. And yes, I’m aware Breaking Bad ended less than three months before True Detective started, but that was a rough three months to find something to fill the “horrible people doing horrible things on TV” hole in my heart.

Since all of you broke the internet with trying to watch some free HBO, we’re gonna give you a spoiler free “True Detective” trivia quiz! Enjoy!

1. How far into the last episode before Woody Harrelson’s Marty Hart is shot and killed by the Yellow King?

2. What was Rust’s line to Marty when he stood over Marty’s body, revealing he had been the Yellow King all along?

3.What was Rust’s occupation when the alternate timeline was revealed?

4. What color was the shirt Marty’s daughter was wearing when it was revealed the entire series took place in her imagination?

5. How angry are you I just ruined the best show on HBO in a decade?

Answers after the standings!

TLO Trivia Night Recap: Oscars Edition!

Screen shot 2014-03-02 at 11.46.33 PM

Well, the Oscars are over, after running for 7 hours. If you thought someone couldn’t work a massive amount of bland unfunny into anything other than a local open mic night, last night’s Oscars proved you wrong. If your dreams were to watch the star of Failure to Launch talk to the plastic faced nightmare that is Goldie Hawn Kim Novak with a smattering of famous people taking selfies, then you’re happy. The rest of us are freezing, bored and glad we DVR’d True Detective.

Here’s some good time Oscar related trivia questions you can wow yourself or your friends with. Answers are at the bottom of the post after the recap. Enjoy!

1. Who has more Oscar wins than any other human?

2. Which director has more Oscars than any other director?

3. How many Oscars does Henry Winkler have?

4. Who did Queen Latifah portray in a sketch on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel?

5. How many Oscars did Alfred Hitchcock win for directing?

TLO Trivia Night: Week 6 Recap


We have completed another week of trivia. Each night is scampy, good ol’ fashioned fun, just like each of the Brady kids. The difference between League of Champions and the Brady kids is one is real, awards you cash, and won’t try to steal the pills in your bathroom.

Couple of important notes before we begin:

• The $1,500 League of Champions Title Match has been scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd at 7:00pm at 51st St. Speakeasy. There’s still plenty of time to qualify.

• This week’s TLO Trivia Night at Yucatan Taco Stand is cancelled due to the Thunder/Heat game. If you’re going to Bricktown for the game, be sure to check them out. They have some great pre-game drinks and awesome food deals throughout the game. We will return on 02/27 and give away double “League of Champions” points,

Anyway, enough with the fine print. Here’s last week’s TLO Trivia recap and League of Champions standings:
