Oh cool, there's another difficult quiz nerd here. If you like Only Connect, you'll enjoy this knock-off of the connecting wall round.

Timestamp would have been nice, for those of us that need to watch a few moments and be done....

I love this show but I miss 90% of the questions on every episode. The ones that are Brit centic particularly destroy me (all roads connecting to the M5).

Back off subby,

I called dibs on Victoria Coren Mitchell many years ago.  Now I just need to move to the UK and make David Mitchell disappear!!

A video featuring Tom Scott on Only Connect from like 20 years ago made me realize how stupid I am.

Also, if you'd like to play (or watch people play) there is an online league, with a U.S-centric league:

(I played a season last year, and was very humbled, but, I'd probably be willing to give it a swing again if a group of 4-5 Farkers wanted to get together for a team).

As far as the question in hand here... I think if you had people who were frequent on message boards about the subject, "ROTJ" I think(?) is a pretty common abbreviation there (the others maybe as well, but, I think they would stick out less than ROTJ).  So, nerdy enough to be sufficiently disappointed, but not enough to sit online and discuss it a lot.

I like British gameshows, even some nerdy ones, but could never get into this one.

only connect haas always been too hard. i have enough uk knowledge for most shows, but they always have more obscure things where i can get a piece or two but not all of it

also it just doesn't mesh with how my brain works.  the sequences don't make sense half the times even after the answer is revealed and i know the info

victoria was funny on taskmaster for about the same reason, she just couldn't wrap her head around so much of how it works

Only Connect: Victoria laughs, at a team who are too highbrow for their own good!

This is still the funniest clip of Only Connect I've seen, where poor Victoria loses it over how highbrow her contestants are.

Even if you are British and so have a chance to get those references, it's still known as one of the hardest quiz shows on British tv.

They did a special with winners of the other 'hard' shows (mastermind, university challenge etc...) and they struggled just as much as anyone else.

And it gets harder as each season builds to its final. If you get *any* right in the grand final episodes you're in the top percentile.

Of course, someone with too much time on their hands has compiled a database of 15 seasons worth of questions to try for yourself. You know, if you have nothing to do for a couple of hours...
