Lazy Sunday thread - What would your Mastermind topic be?

quiz

#1

I’d struggle with mine…jack of a few topics…master(mind) of none…I could have a stab at the history of Nintendo (with some research…plus I need to buy a Switch, donations welcome) but I’d probably have to go for something without much content so…Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace

Now you


#2

The Life and Works of Jerome Allen Seinfeld

really annoys me when people go on and do a tv series that has like two seasons or something. big whoop.


#3

Genuine respect for anyone who picks a proper topic that isn’t popular culture


#4

One season, actually


#5

The simpsons or alan partridge


#6

History of Fender guitars, though would need to do lots of boning up.


#7

The history of cycling’s “Monuments”. I’d fail spectacularly, but it’s a good subject


#8

Applied for Mastermind last year and had to pick 4 potential subjects. Mine were The Thick Of It, The US Office, Plymouth Argyle in the 90s and Belle and Sebastian. When I did my face to face interview/test they told me that if I got through to be on TV then I’d be doing The Office cause there was a good range of questions they could ask and nobody had done it before. I didn’t get through but it would still be that now I guess.
TLDR; The US Office, cheers.


#9

Embarrassingly I think I might have the best chance with the Scream Quadrilogy :scream:


#10

Absolutely no need to be embarrassed…I should have marked this thread as a safe place for any form of nerdiness


#11

Haha, nah, I just wish It was something a bit more… erm… brainy :joy: and less trashy.

Actually… I suppose you could chuck the tv series in there too. Not that this makes it any less bad :smiley:


#12

Hmm.


#13

Championship Manager 2000/2001.


#14

The Flaming Lips.


#15

The Office


#16

discworld.

i’d win as well.


#17

The sherlock holmes stories of “big” sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Listening to the Stephen fry audio books at the moment has made me realise how I know most of them by heart anyway


#18

Foley alts 2006-2017


#19

really dont know what I would choose

most of my interests and passions dont really fit into mastermindable topics

would probably just choose something I like then study it a lot


#20

my friend went on it and actually already did Belle and Sebastian, despite not really liking them that much. She wanted to do Bearsuit but it was too obscure.
