nobody was surprised at the content of his announcement, just that he felt the need to make an announcement.

I still find it appalling that he lost his livelihood just for doing what everybody did in porn theatres (before the internet).

Indeed. I first heard of him in such questions I think, went to Wikipedia to check what it's all about and it's completely ridiculous. They could arrest almost the whole porn theatre every time. The worst punishment should be being asked to leave – if the theatre really decided to stop with such practice.

Flockheart (or was that Flockhart?), Lithgow, Liu... those are the only ones I remember on it.

Lithgow was on it, too?

The big names were Flockhart, Portia di Rossi, Lucy Liu, Courtney Thorne Smith (she was sort of big in TV at the time)... and I think Cristina Ricci showed up in the last season. Probably around the same time as Robert. I don't remember Lithgow at all, though.

Why? The questions are phrased well, the structure is simple but well thought out, and the answers are neither too specific nor too obvious.

Missed Grant, Reynolds, Downey Jr., Givens, and Albert but i was born in 94 so those were all in my childhood or before I was born

Not all knowledge is worth knowing, and all information isn't knowledge either. Got 28/30 and would prefer to have Russian verbs in my brain instead of this crap. But yeah, I must admit these are a lot of fun to do ;)

A few these are quite American specific. The 2007 and 1997 answers are complete unknowns in Britain, their escapades didn't make the news over here. The 2008 answer may be the same, but I don't watch any of those programs so it could just be I missed it.
