Some positives:
Overall, the quiz was good fun. the elims had nice mostly workable questions.The theme was given the correct weightage. and the quiz seemed to be of the right length.

Some negatives:
Quite a few sitters an peters. One thing i really didn't like about the quiz was that a lot of the questions weren't actually A/V questions. As in the question would have been the same even if the visual was not there. Eg: name of song being played was mentioned in ques about advertisement, the name of boxer and assassination were mentioned, and a few more occasions.....so basically the visual made no difference to the question at all.

But then we at the BC may have been spoilt by the last Visuals quiz we had :P

Agree with Aditya. A/V theme got diluted in the finals. Too many easy or one-shot answers. Could have cut down on the 58 qns if the QM knew some of them were easy. Cliched connect, I am afraid (even though everyone got it late). Good effort, and great laughs!
