How Well Do You Know The Villains of White Collar?

Villains of White Collar

OK if you have been reading my blog for a while or have been following me on Twitter, you’ll be well aware of my addiction with TV show White Collar.  As my mother always said, if I only put this much energy into studying I’d have had better grades (having an MBA isn’t enough? :)).  For the record, I believe that White Collar is a highly educational show! Check out my “Ten Things I Learnt From White Collar” post.  And if you are still not convinced, you can also find the show has made it into Wikipedia (Season 3, Ep 7).

If you were one of the lucky attendees at the “White Collar Fans at SDCCparty in San Diego during the annual Comic Con (“SDCC”), you may have picked up a copy of a crossword puzzle prepared by the party organisers based on questions prepared by me.  If you weren’t there (join the club :() then here’s your chance to take the quiz and test your knowledge!

When you’re done, leave a comment here and let me know your score 🙂

And don’t forget to check out the White Collar Fans at SDCC blog for all the behind-the-scenes action from the party and the fans 🙂

I don’t pretend to know anything about this event except that over the years, this gathering of “comic geeks” has grown and now includes a galaxy of stars from the small and big screens.  Tickets were so in demand that the online sales service was not able to cope with the surge of orders when they were first released.  The server crashed, although this might say more about the event’s lack of organisation than anything else, but tickets were released again a few months later.  Still, to the fans who desperately wanted to attend, tickets were hard to come by.  Even the process the press has to go through to get their passes seemed ridiculously complicated, but I have been told it is worth the effort.
