Inspired by the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon discovery, that Gregory Brothers video, a little known internet time waster, and that other famous game show, CCTV has undertaken a new game show entitled The Wikiest Link. If you have ever been at a party and looked up the answer to how Napoleon Bonaparte was poisoned, or the difference between AC and DC, or how the genetic engineering of gypsy moths failed in Medford, then you are definitely skilled enough to try your luck here on The Wikiest Link.
