Dan Ball said...

Who is more famous? John Denver or Bob Denver?

I'd probably say Bob Denver, even though most people today wouldn't know him if he weren't called Gilligan.

Who was better on CHEERS? Shelley Long or Kirstie Alley?

My wife and I have been working our way through the whole series and the consensus is that it's Kirstie Alley. And not just because she was the first Saavik, either.

What's the best sequel?

The Empire Strikes Back. Of the two listed, Godfather 2, but Mannequin 2 is a close second.

Which show was better?

Newhart, his brother Newhart, and his other brother Newhart. I'm not sure what kind of creative mind Barry Kemp is, but I highly admire both NEWHART and COACH (not to mention he co-produced Spielberg's CATCH ME IF YOU CAN).

What show is better? MAD MEN or BREAKING BAD?

Cheers?

What show is worse? 2 BROKE GIRLS or GIRLS?

Yes.

Who do you love to hate more? Simon Cowell or Ann Coulter?

Ann Coulter. Simon Cowell actually seems to be trying to build something up with his criticisms rather than Coulter, who just rips things for shits and giggles. Not to mention Cowell's criticisms wield a hefty amount of common sense, whereas Coulter's the antithesis of common sense.

What’s the most hated team in America? The New York Yankees or the U.S. Supreme Court?

Yankees. (Go Redlegs!)

What’s better? Coke or Pepsi?

Ale8-1. (Regional soft drink in Central KY. My grandma would set up at a Labor Day craft fair in the town where it's made and I'd go around collecting the empty bottles to take them to Kroger for a refund. I'd dig through garbage cans, pour out hives of bees, and more for that green bottle, the color of money. I think I made $80 over two days? It was just enough to buy the best Power Ranger toys out at the time.)

Who’s the best Jr.? Ken Griffey or Cal Ripken?

Ripken. Griffey didn't do us any favors when he was in Cincy. Ripken holds the record for perfect attendance or something, so that's pretty damn honorable.

Who has better original series? HBO or Showtime?

HBO for the simple fact it's home to both BORED TO DEATH and CURB.

What's better? ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK or ORPHAN BLACK?

Probably ORPHAN even though Capt. Janeway from VOYAGER is on ORANGE.

Who would get rustier going through a carwash? Robocop or a Transformer?

Awesome question! I'd say a Transformer because Robocop looks like he's made of a lot of plastic with metallic paint. At least that's covering the vital metallic parts. Transformers would rust like a regular car.

Who is more famous? Honey Boo Boo or the President of the United States?

Well, the President's pissed more people off than Honey Boo Boo, so I'll say him.

Who’s more famous? Sweet Caroline or Caroline Kennedy?

Trick question! They're one in the same!

What’s worse? Brussels sprouts or cauliflower?

Cauliflower. Brussels sprouts have so much more flavor and the texture's better.

Who’s better? Sean Connery or Daniel Craig?

Ouch. I'm gonna say Connery just because of all his awesome non-Bond movies like HIGHLANDER and WIND AND THE LION.

Which is better? Mac or PC?

Not sure.

What's better? DQ or KFC?

KFC for dinner, DQ for dessert. Boom.

Who’s scarier? Jason or Jigsaw?

Marlon Brando as Col. Kurtz in APOCALYPSE NOW.

Who’s scarier? Faye Dunaway or Liza Minnelli?

I'd say Faye unless I found myself married to Liza.

Who has the better cereal name? Coco Crisp or Sugar Bear Flyod Rayford?

Baby Ruth.

Who’s more annoying? Flo from Progressive Insurance or the Geico lizard?

Flo.

Who’s a better hitter? Mike Trout or Liza Minnelli?

Liza. Hands down (or up).

Who’s the funnier Jimmy? Kimmell or Fallon.

Durante.

Who has the best shitty pizza? Dominos or Pizza Hut?

Pizza Hut.

Who is more famous? Marilu Henner or Mary Lou Retton?

Henner. TAXI > Olympics/NAKED GUN 33 1/3 cameo

Which is better? Facebook or actually having friends?

I prefer SEINFELD to FRIENDS. Oh wait, not a TV question. Well...friends are okay. I guess.

Klee said...

Best thing about this game is to find out the amount of people who actually preferred Shelley Long to Kirstie Alley!!! Even though, Kirstie had great moments as Rebecca, Shelley's performance remains one of the all-time best in history of sitcoms! By the way, this century's Faye Dunaway is SCARIER than just about anyone you compare her to.

David G. Whitham said...

Mork said...

Who is more famous? John Denver or Bob Denver
Bob Denver as a character. John Denver as a person.

Who was better on CHEERS? Shelley Long or Kirstie Alley?
Shelley Long, primarily because Diane was a better character than Rebecca. (I sense a trend.)

What's the best sequel? GODFATHER 2 or MANNEQUIN 2?
Ken, I'll go off the board and take "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo” for $50.

Which show was better? THE BOB NEWHART SHOW or NEWHART?
Newhart. But this question is sort of like asking whether it's better to sit in first class on the left side of the plane or the right side of the plane.

What show is better? MAD MEN or BREAKING BAD?
Breaking Bad. But see my previous response.

What show is worse? 2 BROKE GIRLS or GIRLS?
2 Broke Girls. Vagina! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Who do you love to hate more? Simon Cowell or Ann Coulter?
Ann Coulter. We can always deport Simon Cowell.

What’s the most hated team in America? The New York Yankees or the U.S. Supreme Court?
The Yankees. Reminds me of the old joke about the murdered nude woman whose private parts were covered by a Yankees' cap.

What’s better? Coke or Pepsi?
They both taste like malted battery acid. (B. Breathed.) Pepsi.

Who’s the best Jr.? Ken Griffey or Cal Ripken?
The Iron Man.

Who has better original series? HBO or Showtime?
HBO. Love me some "First and Ten".

Who would get rustier going through a carwash? Robocop or a Transformer?
Wait, if we run them both through a bunch of times, will they rust enough so they both go away forever?

Who is more famous? Honey Boo Boo or the President of the United States?
Which president? Barack Obama > Honey Boo Boo > Franklin Pierce.

Who’s more famous? Sweet Caroline or Caroline Kennedy?
Bah bah bah.

What’s worse? Brussels sprouts or cauliflower?
Yes.

Who’s better? Sean Connery or Daniel Craig?
You're f*cking kidding, right?

Which is better? Mac or PC?
Mac for everything except sucking.

What's better? DQ or KFC?
TGIF

Who’s scarier? Jason or Jigsaw?
Umm...Jason?

Who’s scarier? Faye Dunaway or Liza Minnelli?
Faye Dunaway.

Who has the better cereal name? Coco Crisp or Sugar Bear Flyod Rayford?
Can't get enough of that Coco Crisp.

Who’s more annoying? Flo from Progressive Insurance or the Geico lizard?
Again, yes.

Who’s a better hitter? Mike Trout or Liza Minnelli?
Looks like shithead Ray Rice this week. (I know, not funny. I'm an asshat. Sorry.)

Who’s the funnier Jimmy? Kimmell or Fallon.
Kimmel. Fallon comes across as forced.

Who has the best shitty pizza? Dominos or Pizza Hut?
Pizza Hut. At least there's substance to it.

Who is more famous? Marilu Henner or Mary Lou Retton?
Marilu Henner. Don't have to tell her, though; she remembers the first time you asked, on August 14, 1986 at 7:12pm in a writers' room on the Paramount lot.

Which is better? Facebook or actually having friends?
I don't know; I have Facebook...

D. McEwan said...

"Who is more famous? John Denver or Bob Denver?"

Bob. No contest. Amazing how quickly John's been forgotten.

"Who was better on CHEERS? Shelley Long or Kirstie Alley?"

Shelley, but it's close.

"What's the best sequel? GODFATHER 2 or MANNEQUIN 2?"

I've never seen Mannequin 2, sorry, but I'll risk that it's Godfather II, which is the best sequel since Bride of Frankenstein.

"Which show was better? THE BOB NEWHART SHOW or NEWHART?"

I prefer Newhart.

"What show is better? MAD MEN or BREAKING BAD?"

No opinion. I've never seen either.

"What show is worse? 2 BROKE GIRLS or GIRLS?"

Ditto.

"What’s the most hated team in America? The New York Yankees or the U.S. Supreme Court?"

Well, I hope it's the SCOTUS, which is fucking America royally with its insane, greed-driven delusion that corporations are people, the single worst decision in its entire history, handing our election process over to the richest and most evil, greedy and corrupt amongst us. We'll be decades undoing the damage of that bought-and-paid-for desicion. And the Hobby Lobby decision was fucked up also. Corporations have religions? Insane. How about Religions ARE corporations, and should be taxed accordingly.

"What’s better? Coke or Pepsi?"

Well, I tend to drink Pepsi, but that's just lifelong habit. These days when I can get it, I drink "Pepsi-Cola," which is what they're retitled "Pepsi Throwback."

"Who’s the best Jr.? Ken Griffey or Cal Ripken?"

Neither. Lon Chaney Jr. (Also, I don't know who Griffey or Ripkin are. I'm guessing atheletes?)

"Who has better original series? HBO or Showtime?"

No opinion.

"What's better? ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK or ORPHAN BLACK?"

Haven't watched either, but I'd probably lean towards Orphan Black. Isn't Orange just Oz without the penises? And I only watched Oz for the famous penises.

"Who would get rustier going through a carwash? Robocop or a Transformer?"

No opinion nor interest.

"Who is more famous? Honey Boo Boo or the President of the United States?"

Not even close. The president is famous WORLDWIDE! Outside of Appelachia and The Soup, no one's heard of that Honey Boo-Boo creature.

D. McEwan said...

"Who’s more famous? Sweet Caroline or Caroline Kennedy?"

To answer this I need merely ask: Who is "Sweet Caroline"?

"What’s worse? Brussels sprouts or cauliflower?"

I like both. Either is delicious swimming in butter and garlic.

"Who’s better? Sean Connery or Daniel Craig?"

Connery, but it's close.

"Which is better? Mac or PC?"

I'm told Mac but I've only ever used a PC.

"What's better? DQ or KFC?"

Well, I've never been to a DQ, but I love KFC.

"Who’s scarier? Jason or Jigsaw?"

Neither. What's scarier is people who find those movies entertaining.

"Who’s scarier? Faye Dunaway or Liza Minnelli?"

No contest. Dunaway is a monster. Liza's merely pitiful. (A friend of mine worked for a while taking tickets at the Hollywood Arclight Theaters about ten years ago. Faye Dunaway showed up at his door demanding free admission. He refused. Then she demanded a discount. He told her: "I'm sorry, Miss Dunaway, but our senior discount ends at 6 PM." She left, enraged.)

"Who’s more annoying? Flo from Progressive Insurance or the Geico lizard?"

Flo.

"Who’s a better hitter? Mike Trout or Liza Minnelli?"

Who is Mike Trout?

"Who’s the funnier Jimmy? Kimmell or Fallon."

Fallon.

"Who has the best shitty pizza? Dominos or Pizza Hut?"

I can not perceive a difference.

"Who is more famous? Marilu Henner or Mary Lou Retton?"

Retton. The Olympics attract the entire world. I'm sure Taxi is run overseas, but it's not The Olympics.

"Which is better? Facebook or actually having friends?"

Having friends.

D. McEwan said...

Somehow I missed batching over:

"Who do you love to hate more, Simon Cowell or Ann Coulter?" (Should be "Whom".)

I don't hate Simon. He's entertaining and he's more-often-than-not correct. I do not love to hate Ann Coulter, but I DEEPLY despise her. There's nothing fun or likeable about that vile C-word. I hate her more than polio. She is a sentient turd, shit-on-legs. Her agonising death would make me smile.

I also missed the question: "Who has the better cereal name, Coco Puffs or Sugar Bear Floyd Rayford?"

Once again, who or what the hell is "Sugar Bear Floyd Rayford? Baseball player? Country-Western Star? Actual cereal? Never heard the name before in my entire life.

Victor Velasco said...

1) Reluctantly, John; the only consolation is that he also wins for infamous
2) Shelley, cause you could be annoyed with her and still like her; Kirstie as Rebecca was pathetic in her pursuit of Robin Colcord
3)Godfather 2
4)Too close to call
5)MAD MEN
6) GIRLS...cause to argue with the self-righteous fan base is to be a Philistine or worse
7) Trick question cause Cowell is like a wrestling heel but Coulter seems quite cruel
8) Supremes
9) Coke
10) Griffey cause he never hurt his team while pursuing a streak
11) HBO
12) ...uh, have never seen an episode of either
13) Robocop cause the Tranformers would be better prepared
14) the President
15) Sweet Caroline cause younger folks don't know Caroline K.
16) cauliflower, on looks alone
17) Sean Connery
18) Mac
19) Jason
20) Liza
21) Coco
22) I keep waiting for the cavemen to come back and eat that lizard
23) Trout
24) Fallon, for his versatility
25) ...can I write in Papa John?
26) Henner!
27) Friends, always

-- Coulter. Simon just judges aspiring singers; Coulter can actually affect public opinion and elections (shudder).
-- Re: Yanks vs. SCOTUS, someone wrote that Yankee fans tend to vote Republican. Would like to see what Democrats who hate the Yanks think.
-- Griffey. Ripken had an incredible record, but The Kid saved baseball in Seattle.
-- Haven't seen ORANGE yet, but after just one ORPHAN episode? Tatiana Maslany, #swoon
-- Craig. He's given Bond an honesty, plus he co-starred with Queen Elizabeth.
-- KFC for food, DQ for desserts (though those pudding or cobbler cups at KFC aren't half bad).
-- Fallon; Kimmel's humor is nasty and belittling.
-- Actually, Domino's improved their pizza quite a bit the last few years.
-- At least you can mute Facebook friends when they get annoying; you can't always avoid real-life friends.

Here's another one.

On BEWITCHED, what Dick was the best Darrin -- York or Sargent?

(By the way, Dick Sargent's real last name was Cox but even Peter O'Toole thought Dick Cox was too much.)

Wayne said...

Keeping track of shows with Newhart in the title is as hard as keeping track of shows with Cosby in the title.

Doug Thompson said...

Here's a couple more Ken.

Who's funnier - Stan Laurel or Stan Freberg?

Who's the best character actor in films - Walter Houston or Walter Brennan?

Who's the more successful Barrymore actor - John Barrymore or Drew Barrymore?

Who was the better Barney Rubble on The Flintstones - Mel Blanc or Rick Moranis?

Johnny Walker said...

Who was better on CHEERS? Shelley Long or Kirstie Alley?

Shelley Long. By a mile (sorry Kirstie Alley -- you were great, Long was sublime.)

What's the best sequel? GODFATHER 2 or MANNEQUIN 2?

Ahem. Pass!

What show is better? MAD MEN or BREAKING BAD?

BB is more immediately fun and gripping. MM is satisfying on a deeper level. Both great shows for entirely different reasons.

What’s better? Coke or Pepsi?

Coke. Duh.

Who would get rustier going through a carwash? Robocop or a Transformer?

RoboCop looks to be built from stainless steel. Transformers are built from classic American cars. With that in mind, it's a wonder the latter can do anything at all.

Who’s better? Sean Connery or Daniel Craig?

Sean Connery remains the ultimate Bond, but I'd wager that Daniel Craig looks better in the Zardoz outfit.

Who’s scarier? Faye Dunaway or Liza Minnelli?

Mary Tyler Moore. Or so I hear.

Who’s the funnier Jimmy? Kimmell or Fallon.

Fallon.

Who has the best shitty pizza? Dominos or Pizza Hut?

Best shittiest pizza: Dominos.
Shittiest shitty pizza: Pizza Hut.

Which is better? Facebook or actually having friends?

Who needs friends when you've got LinkedIn.

"DBenson said...

Classic Road Runner or classic Bugs Bunny?"


Road Runner, but it's close.

"Seventh Voyage of Sinbad or Jason and the Argonauts?"

Jason, but again, it's close. Jason has more skeletons. And it presents Jason and Medea sailing off together as a happy ending, like we don't know what Medea will one day do to their kids.

"In high school: Guys and Dolls or Bye Bye Birdie?"

Neither. In high school we did The Boy Friend (I played Percival Browne) and 110 in the Shade (I played File). But we weren't totally non-conformist. We also did Our Town. (I played the Stage Manager.)

"Electra Woman or Dyna Girl?"

I have no knowledge of either.

"Mutts or Get Fuzzy?"

Is this in a foreign language? I have no idea what this question pertains to.

"Italian or Thousand Island?"

When that's the choice, definitely Thousand Island, but frankly, I prefer Ranch.

"TinTin or Asterix the Gaul?"

I have to go with Tintin simply because I have no idea who Asterix the Gaul is.

"As a kid: DC or Marvel?"

DEFINTELY DC. DC all the way. Never bought a Marvel comic in my life. Last weekend I spent three hours in a room with Stan Lee and never even crossed the room to talk to him. I was devoted to Superman, with a side order of Batman.

"Least annoying: Casper or Baby Huey?"

Absolutely Casper.

"Shake or malted?"

Shake.

"Matt Helm or Derek Flint?"

Flint! No contest. The Matt Helm movies are unwatchable. Dean Martin as Matt Helm makes Roger Moore look like an acceptable James Bond.

"Monopoly or Trivial Pursuit?"

Trivial Pursuit! At the Silver Screen edition, I am undefeated!

"Peter Pan's Flight or Mr. Toad's Wild Ride?"

Much as I like the flying pirate ship, you can not top a ride for kiddies that ends by sending you to Hell. Mr. Toad.

"Cloud or actual CDs?"

Actual CDs.

"His brother Darryl or his other brother Darryl?"

Other brother Darryl. He was The Man! Well, a man anyway.

A toughie. A REAL toughie. I have to go with Stan Laurel, but ask me again in an hour and I might change my mind.



Of those two, Huston, but excuse me, Boris Karloff!

"Who's the more successful Barrymore actor - John Barrymore or Drew Barrymore?"

John. I'm prejudiced however, as I won two acting awards for playing him onstage. I even named my cat for John Barrymore.

"Who was the better Barney Rubble on The Flintstones - Mel Blanc or Rick Moranis?"

Mel, Mel, Mel, Mel, Mel.

Two Broke Girls is so bad that even the presence of Kat Dennings can't keep me tuned in.
I'm not sure where the bar is where a show is so bad that I won't endure it for a weekly look at the wonder that wonder of nature. I just know that TBK clears it with room to spare.

"Electra Woman or Dyna Girl?"
I have no knowledge of either.
-- The Krofft brothers (Pufnstuf) did a live-action kid show featuring a Batman & Robin type duo, but with ladies (soap star Deidre Hall and Judy Strangis from Room 222). Not outrageously sexy like Catwoman, but darn cute when running like girls and reason enough for a teenager to tune in. A Ginger/Mary Ann for the 70s.

"Mutts or Get Fuzzy?"
Is this in a foreign language? I have no idea what this question pertains to.
-- Two current comics. Mutts is a sweet-tempered and attractive strip about pets; Get Fuzzy is a raucous one about a bachelor with a dopey but sincere dog and a viciously idiotic cat. Each, in its own way, is very knowing in the ways of animals.

"TinTin or Asterix the Gaul?"
I have to go with Tintin simply because I have no idea who Asterix the Gaul is.
-- Asterix is best summed up as Popeye vs. the Roman Empire. Published as a series of graphic novels like Tintin; most take Asterix and sidekick Obelix to a comically stereotyped foreign country; sometimes with caricatures of then-current celebrities (Kirk Douglas leads a slave revolt; Sean Connery is a spy). No bloodshed, but plenty of fisticuffs. Julius Caesar is often a short-tempered straight man. Still in print; has spawned a series of animated and live-action movies across the pond.

As a huge John Denver fan, I am finding it sad that John is on the losing end of the battle of the Denvers...maybe the Gilligan reruns are doing the trick but with Colorado's pot laws, the phrase "Rocky Mountain High" is back in the vernacular..and countless covers of John's music are uploaded every day. Still, Bob's only been dead for a bit but John's been gone for awhile..sad that he is forgotten already.
