Rocky Film Festival


Casey: If I did do the list [of my 10 favorite movies of all time], it'd be a damn good list. I can tell you that much right now.
Dana: How many Rocky movies?
Casey: One through three.
Dana: Not four and five?
Casey: Don't be ridiculous, Dana. This is the ten best movies of all time.

Sports Night, April is the Cruelest Month
In February, we are planning a Rocky Film Festival, of sorts, here at HowWellDoYouKnow.com...that is, we'll run a quiz on each of the Rocky films in order on consecutive Saturdays. We already have on the original (note: nothing would prevent us from running a second version) and one on Rocky Movie Quotes, so we'll start with Rocky II on February 18 and work forward from there.

If one or more of the Rockys holds a special place in your heart and you'd like to share your love in quiz form, drop us a line. Quizzes are easy to submit our Quiz-o-Matic.

Tentative Publication Schedule
February 18: Rocky II
February 25: Rocky III
March 3: Rocky IV
March 10:: Rocky V

Wanted: TV quizzes


Over the past few years, we've built up a catalog of nearly 500 television trivia quizzes. We've run quizzes on everything from individual episodes of shows to TV theme songs. At the heart of this collection, though, are quizzes for an individual season of a television program. Over the years, we've received several contributions of such quizzes from our readers. With the start of the new TV season, we're once again putting out the call for contributions of quizzes for TV series.

It's easy to do a quiz on a TV series. The length of most of our quizzes are in the range of 20-30 questions, and there are aroung 20 episodes for most TV series seasons. So, it takes just 1 or 2 questions for each episode, and the quiz is complete. Using the Quiz-o-Matic, it's easy to compile the quiz as the season progresses.

Doing a quiz is also a great way to share your enthusiasm about the show and to prove your mastery of the TV program.

Below is a *partial* list of shows for which we'd eventually like to run quizzes. See a title below that you'd like to try? Great, just shoot us an email and it's yours. If there's a title not listed below for which you'd like to run a quiz for, even better. Let us know and we'll reserve it for you.

Dear celebrities (from basic cable reality show contestants/cast members and up),

We have fulfilled our end of the bargain by following your every move, despite how minute, yet 99 percent of you have not lived up to your part over the last three week. Here are some suggestions: Time to get busy because it is already Tuesday and we have Thursday deadline.

Thanks and God bless,

Firefly quizzes


HowWellDoYouKnow has featured quizzes on some of our favorite TV shows in the past.

In January 2008, we started a something different, which we're now in position to complete.

Joss Whedon's work in television has attracted a legion of loyal - sometimes rabidly so - fans. Included among these are the staff of HowWellDoYouKnow and our parent site, Box Office Prophets. Any discussion of brilliant-but-cancelled series has to include Whedon's space western Firefly. The ambitious series only lasted 14 episodes, but holds a special place in the heart of its fans.

Whereas previously, we've done one or two quizzes for an entire season of a television series, for Firefly, we're presenting one quiz per episode. We'll publish a new quiz every day or so until we cover the entire series.

We hope fans of this television gem enjoy taking the quizzes as much as we did assembling them.

Emailing quizzes


Responding to possibly dozens of requests, we've added the ability for visitors to easily email a link for their favorite HWDYK quiz to a friend. On the quiz introduction and scoring pages, just look for the "Email this quiz" icon at the top of the Share & Save! box.

Celebrity quizzes


Today we are downright thrilled to offer the first of our quizzes on individual celebrities. As our first subject, we chose Tom Cruise, a figure who, for better or worse, has dominated pop culture for the past two decades. We will feature celebrity quizzes every few weeks. If there's a star on who you're the authority, why not take a stab at authoring a quiz yourself for publication here at HowWellDoYouKnow.com? See the suggest/create page for more information.
