S05.E07: First Names First

Things are extra tuneful on this week's new episode! Jim, James, and Gerald all face off for pop culture games and trivia that really test their musical minds. A cello-themed round of My Champion gives way to a round one filled with some unexpected movie-singing (though some of these examples are VERY expected if you have been tracking the types of movies Taylor likes to put in games). Gears shift in round two where players try to un-confuse pop culture properties that each have characters who share a first name. And as always, it's not over until everyone gets a crack at the lightning round!
