THIS WEEK'S CATEGORY: "DR. NO" PLAYS CATEGORIES
On-air questions: On October 5, 1962, Dr. No, the first film in the James Bond series, was released. Based on the 1958 Ian Fleming novel, the film sees Bond travel to Jamaica to thwart Dr. No's plans to disrupt a space launch. While Dr. No was the first Bond film produced, it was not the first James Bond novel: it was preceded by five other novels, all of which were eventually adapted for the screen. To commemorate the release of Dr. No, we're going to play a game of Categories. I'll give you a category, and you come up with things in that category that start with the letters D, R, N, and O.

1. Major League Baseball team nicknames
2. Words in The Star-Spangled Banner
3. U.S. state capitals
4. Last names of Best Actor winners since 1990
