Blaine is AWFUL with a capital AWFUL (waits for canned applause)! I do want to know what possessed J to leave or who made the choice to replace him.

I do agree that the game itself is better than before, although I still hate the Geekqualizer. It renders the preceding two rounds obsolete.

And don't forget the tv geek's biggest cameo of all- Not Another Teen Movie!

The Geekqualizer doesn't render the preceding rounds obsolete, it is just set up in a way to make sure that the last round is meaningful. You have to set it up in such a way were the contestants both have a chance to the very end, because watching two people play out a contest which the outcome has all ready been decided doesn't make for good TV. Still, it's better to be way ahead going into the Geekqualizer than way behind. Often the leader doesn't even have to answer a question, as the trailing player fails to answer enough to take the lead. I hardly think in those situations that the first two rounds was meaningless.

I will clarify then. I think that the challenge rounds are truly more difficult, especially if the challenger makes it to the final "Get as many answers in (x) seconds" portion.

It just seems after all the harder, more trivia-based work, someone who is obviously outmatched can still win the game by knowing that Stripes is a movie, and the White Stripes is a music group. Being able to distinguish movies from television and from music is much easier than coming up with the answer to a movie question (obviously this is not always the case though I will admit).

I don't disagree with this guy, I was just very amused seeing this on a subsection of a Wrestling Forum.
