A scone is very definitely not a biscuit...

It most definitely is. Think American biscuits with gravy. And then think of a breakfast scone eaten in England. Same thing.

The English definition of biscuit is very different from the American definition. In the UK we call a "biscuit" what the Americans call a "cookie".

I think that many, if not most Americans realize that what the British call a biscuit is what we call a cookie and vice versa. A scone (which was the clue) more closely resembles the American version of the biscuit in its appearance but without the sweeteners or fruits that are often added to scones. Either way I don't see that it is a real challenge to get from scone to biscuit especially if you've already made the leap from ocean to sea. Also, roleybob, don't be too quick about not putting gravy on cookies. In the American South, where I'm from, we make chocolate gravy. It was always one of my favorite weekend treats when I was a kid and it's amazing on hot waffles. It'll make your tongue beat your brains out...

Chocolate gravy? Well from that it also sounds like what you call gravy is not the same as what we call gravy...

It's a huge leap from scone to biscuit. Maybe not to Americans if they already use the word 'biscuit' to mean scone, but to the rest of the English-speaking world they are completely different things.

Actually as defined by many of the various dictionary source and encyclopedias out there. A scone is actually very much a biscuit due to the structural and taste of the physical structure. WA WA

Good quiz, never heard of three of the answers.

I agree a scone is not a biscuit, but it's not a difficult step to make to get the answer.

Tar is not a synonym for the pitch in Pitch Perfect. Harmonic, modulation, timbre or sound are all examples of synonyms for pitch in it's use a noun meaning tone or sound.

The quiz doesn't concern the actual meanings of the titles, just the words in them. Therefore "tar" is a perfectly acceptable (and quite enjoyable in my opinion) synonym.

Tar is another word for pitch. Not the same type of pitch, but that doesn't matter. It's a very good clue.

The movie literally features an extended and highly explicit orgy.

It was absolutely, definitely, never intended for kids.

There are two Black Knight films. Admittedly not the greatest movies, but they exist. Can this answer be accepted as well? Hilarious quiz in a great series by the way.

For "Henchmen," I thought of Goonies. This is one of the definitions that wiktionary provides: goonie/gooney - (slang) a henchman, a thug, a gangster, a goon.

Minions is more appropriate, but would Goonies work?

if the answer is one word i think the synonyms should be concatenated as well e.g. Graverock. i think i've seen this in other synonym quizzes and it gives an extra clue

I can't believe no one has complained about the English/British one yet. There are places in the UK where that sort of mix up could land you in very hot water, e.g. Scotland.

And a scone is not a biscuit! Scones are best with jam and cream.

Some tenuous ones here, but by far my favourite is The Stygian Paladin.
