St. Peters is technically in Vatican City, not in Rome. And clearly King Kong was apenapped, not kidnapped.

Got to agree with him, technically not in Rome. Although I tried to guess it, I was just sure it was St Paul's. But that's every OTHER cathedral in the world.

it would be nice if you could change the office clue and answer slightly - the UK show is set in Slough so would still be an S and fit nicely into this quiz as an alternative answer (if you remove the bit specifying Pennsylvania)

Sherwood and Sherwood forest are two different places

Consider the context, the answer isn't in isolation - look at the question, "Sherwood" is perfectly fine as an answer when taking everything into consideration.
+1
Level 51
Aug 8, 2017
But then it specifically asks for the name of the forest where he lived. Hence Sherwood being the answer
