I'd like to see The Wild, Wild West on MeTv. Jim West and Artemis Gordon made one of the best dynamic duos on tv, imo.

"Did you end this quiz well or do you wish you could begin again?"
Look, I could say I got 12/12 and you wouldn't know if I did or not. But MeTV clearly implied I could begin again, and I wasn't satisfied with 10/12 the 1st time. So that's what I did. I took it again.


And I got 9/12. The moral is I either should have quit when I was ahead... or lied and said I got 12/12.
