Copperhead Quiz

Copper's second season begins Sunday, June 23rd, on the BBC America channel. I challenge you to take the Copperhead Quiz below to measure your level of fandom. Beware, you may find yourself too Morehoused to play the game, or that you are an obsessed viewer like myself. So, get something to write with and some paper. Don't argue - just do it. You can play, or you can pray.

Disclaimer: This is all in good fun. Don't go tellin' Kevin, Maguire, O'Brien, Doc Freeman, Cpt Sullivan, Eva, Robert, or Elizabeth that I'm talkin' about them behind their backs. In all seriousness, this is my personal blog and is not endorsed by the BBC America, Cineflix, or the cast/crew of Copper. All photos from

     If you correctly answered                                               Consider Yourself 

20 or less          (50% or below)                            
Really? You are obviously Morehoused and in no shape to play a game. Report to the Morehouse Mansion where Robert will greet you with a smile, great company, and great whiskey. At least you tried. Major Morehouse appreciates a good attempt.

21 - 27              (52.5% - 67.5%)                                 
You have spent too much time body hopping at Eva's Paradise. You're on Copperhead Probation. Report to Cpt Sullivan and explain your shortcomings. You have been replaced by Little Burns on the force.

28 - 31              (70% - 77.5%)
You have watched some episodes, but you're only half a fan. You are a Copperhead-in-Training. Watch all episodes again. Report to Det. O'Brien, he will train you in the art of physical intimidation, and how to be hen-pecked.

32 - 35              (80% - 87.5%)
Way to go. You are a Copperhead Corporal. Report to Det. Maguire. He will train you in the art of deception and secrecy, and probably share his whiskey. Beware if you're a female. If Francis falls in love with you, you may end up dead.

36 - 39              (90% - 97%)
Wow, you are a Copperhead Apprentice since it seems you're too scare of Sybil O'Brien to miss a single episode. Report to Det. Corcoran. He will keep you safe from Sybil and continue your training. Ladies, he may also end up in your bed if you're not careful. Woo - Hoo!

40                     (100%)
Outstanding! Go buy yourself a hat. You are a full-on obsessed Copperhead. Report to Cpt Sullivan. He will give you a badge and a gun - nothing gets by you. You've been assigned to work with Corcoran and O'Brien while Francis recovers.

***Hope you had fun and thanks for playing. Tune in to Copper next month on the BBCA to see what happens to our friends in Five Points.
