The BBook of Geek TV Quiz

By Brian Briggs

This is the second of eight quizzes taken from the 8 pillars of geekdom (software, TV, literature, gaming, movies, science, hardware, Internet) found in The BBook of Geek. In the BBook, there are six facts listed for each of the 128 topics. Of those facts, only two are real. For this quiz, I've made it easier. You only have to tell if one fact is true or false. Answer carefully, your geekiness is at stake.
