Technically, Eleven's birth name (and legal name, after she is adopted by Hopper) is "Jane". Could add that as a type-in for the ST buffs :)

Also, dang, way to spoil the end of season 1 of the Good Place ;) A possible alternative could be, "On what show starring Kristen Bell were characters unable to curse, forced to say words like "shirt" or "fork" instead?"

NCIS is a naval criminal investigative service.

It's the same as CSI, but only investigates crimes that are related to the US Navy.

CSI investigate all crimes (except army/navy crimes)

Bojack Horseman is a surprisingly good show. Mostly it's a stupid comedy, but it also breaches some very dark subjects in a strangely real way for a show about an anthropomorphized horse. They also do some interesting episodes, like the one where he is in an underwater city for a film festival and can't talk while there so there is no dialog for the whole episode. Or the one where he gives his Mom's eulogy, which is basically a half hour monologue for the entire episode.

There is no TV show called The US Office. and, though the UK version of the show was considerably less popular, Slough is still an accepted type-in.

1) It's called "American TV trivia".

2) It's called 2010s trivia, and the UK Office aired entirely in the decade prior.

3) You know what the quiz is talking about. You're just being contrarian.

I thought “crystal meth” & “meth” are the same thing. And if they are, why doesn’t the quiz accept “crystal meth”?
