    Bounce Trap was already an addictive game:

    [​IMG]

    Addiction is a cruel mistress. She sneaks up on you, luring you with promise of pleasure. It's a rouse, a trap – one time and you're hooked. Bounce Trap ensnares you with its easy-to-learn gameplay, drawing you back with its subtle strategic depth. ... Bounce Trap provides polished casual play with enough depth to entertain a seasoned gamer. - PocketGamer

    In celebration of making an addictive game even more addictive with the addition of tilt control of balls, we're doing a trivia contest about ... addiction.

    The rules:

    1. No editing of messages.

    2. I decide who wins, no whining!

    The Question: This famous detective TV show of the 50's and 60's often covered the dangers of drugs as a theme. However one aspect of the show was in fact, a reference to a prescription sedative that was often abused.

    What was the name of the show AND what was the drug in question and HOW did it relate to the show. And NO, I will not tell you if you have the show right if you guess that part. There are THREE pieces of information here: The Show, The Drug, and the Link.

    (see, you folks have gotten so used to Google that I have had to dig into obscurity in order stump you ... but someone probabily knows this anyway).

    I knew it had to be dragnet. I was subjected to Dragnet on Nick at Nite growing up a lot (LOT) so I just had to figure out the link.

    Technically my answer was also right, but anyway. Good job aprodigalson! I was on Dragnet, but for some reason thought it was heroin.
