Last LAMB Standing: Standings through Episode 88

by Shep. Burman · October 18, 2011 · LAMBcast, Podcasts · 8 Comments

For those unfamiliar with the LAMBcast, at the end of the show each week, we play a couple games called Last LAMB Standing. It’s a very simple idea: the game’s host names an actor or actress, and the players cycle through said actor’s films until they can no longer name any, at which point they are out. The last player left is the victor.

The task of producing the stats for the game has been requested of me for some time. I’m not sure why I chose the occasion of episode 88 as the time to do it (it would surely make more sense to post this after 100 episodes), but I’ve got it ready and want to get it up before I forget.

Anyway, we’ve played a lot of games of Last LAMB Standing on the first 88 LAMBcasts (141 by my count), covering what seems like every major contemporary movie star (and even going through some movie casts as well). In that time, we’ve been able to pretty easily identify some of the better (Sebastian) and worse (Nick, James) of the game. Being a stat geek, I’ve kept a tally of each game that we’ve played; it also helps to know which actors, actresses, and films we’ve used. Below are the records of the LLS players:

  1. I played four times? And won once? Heck yes.

  2. Okay–I’ve won a third of the games I’ve played. No more making fun of me, Dylan.

  3. Duke says:

    35 % … Not bad.

    We need more females on the show. Just a general observation going down this list.

  4. Univarn says:

    Wahoo on the board with 0 wins!

  5. Dylan says:

    Paul – You are a god among men.

    Steve – I would never think of it!

    Sam – 100% agreed. Joel and I have been scouting.

    Univarn – A true accomplishment.

  6. JoelB says:

    I’m on the prowl for my first win! There should be a runner up column as well I think I have at least two of them maybe you can summarize that for the 100th epsiode Dylan? (just kidding)

    Great breakdown! When it comes to women on the cast I have been tweeting some female lammies and gotten some slight interest so hopefully will have some more participation. I have also suggested having an all female episode if possible just to get the ball rolling.

  7. Dylan says:

    I’ll get right on that runner-up column, Joel. 😉 Better yet, you can do it. Oh wait, to do that, you’d need access to all of the archived shows. Well, I’ll get right on that, too. 😉

    An all-lady LAMBcast sounds like a great idea. It just can’t be only Rachel and Jess, since that would just be a bizarro Reel Insight.

  8. Rachel says:

    Like that would be a bad thing? 😉
