My feelings surrounding Let It Be (the album more so than the titular song) have always been complicated. While I certainly don’t think there was ever an outright bad Beatles album, the stories about how the band didn’t even really want the album released and how the label put their own finishing touches on it and pushed it out after the band’s break-up…well, it just somehow makes the whole thing seem really greedy, artificial, and unfair.

Abbey Road, their famous album which was actually the last one they recorded, serves as a much grander finale to their discography. I know I’m not exactly spouting out an unpopular opinion by talking about how great the Beatles are, but I still can’t help but get swept up on the majesty of Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End being the song trilogy that closes out the band’s musical legacy.

Anyway, you should look these guys up if you haven’t heard them.

Homework from this week’s quiz: A Hard Day’s Night, or any other film starring the Beatles. Are they any good, you ask? The question will remain unanswered even after you’ve watched them.

Until next week.

Last night’s NCAA championship game, which played during the first half of the evening, dwarfed in comparison to the intensity and unpredictability of the quiz.

Our rare Sooner or Later round format made a sudden return, reminding all the quizzers that they know far less than they thought they did about the major characters (including Link, The Doctor, and Batman) that fall into the core nerd curriculum.

The cutthroat competitive nature of it all was enough to knock some of the regular teams from the standings and allow some *gasp* newcomers to take the top spot. Congrats to Mon Stars, who I’m sure we’ll be seeing again.

Homework from this week’s quiz: Oz, The Great & Powerful. Now, I haven’t actually seen it. But a friend of mine did, and he said that if you go in with rock-bottom expectations, it’s actually a pretty fun movie.

Until next time.

I never realized until last night’s quiz how similar of a demeanor Betty Draper and Lucille Bluth had, with the only thing really setting them apart was the difference in comedic intent on the writers’ part. They’re self-serving, critical of others, and rare capable of presenting themselves in a sympathetic manner to both the audience and the other characters in their lives. They’re both also really great characters, when all is said and done.

Speaking of which, Mad Men starts its final run of episodes in mere days and I’m really looking forward to seeing how they wrap everything up. At this point, many of the character arcs are already on the brink of closure, so really it’s just a matter of seeing where everyone is going to end up. Will Don stop hating himself and find some measure of peace in his life? Will Peggy finally find both professional and personal fulfillment? Will Sterling and Joan get finally reunite romantically and raise their child together? Will Harry Crane, who despite usually being one of the smartest guys in the room, finally learn how to not come across as a douche to everyone around him?

And the list of questions goes on. What I love about the show is that they’ve created a rich universe of characters who, for the most part, are all multi-dimensional and don’t merely exist to be plot pieces (I love Game of Thrones, but it tends to be pretty guilty of this; how many weathered old men have come in and out of that show just to provide exposition or provide an army to someone else?). I really want to know what’s going to happen to Ken Cosgrove. And Ted Chaough. And Dawn the secretary. And Henry Francis. And Glen the creepy neighbor kid. And Trudy Campbell. And Stan. And And Megan. Sal, lord willing they finally bring him back so we can see what happened to him.

Will the show end right when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve before they enter the 70’s? Will we get a flashback to present-day Don Draper (assuming all the alcohol and cigarettes haven’t killed him by now)? Crazy to think that two months from now we’ll have these ansawers.

Homework from this week’s quiz: Boyhood was indirectly mentioned in a question involving Richard Linklater, the director who also created the Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight trilogy. An excellent film of his from a few years ago that most people missed was Bernie, which I can’t recommend enough (and if it means that much to you, it has 90% on Rotten Tomatoes and stars Jack Black, Shirley MccClaine, and Matthew McCougahgghehghehey that guy from Fool’s Gold).

Until next week.
