I don't know about you, but every time Missoula is mentioned on a TV show or movie I'm watching, my heart does a little flutter kick! You instantly feel connected to what you're watching and you wait to see what they have to say about your hometown! (Hopefully all good! lol)

Missoula has been referenced a lot over the years in TV shows like Criminal Minds, Supernatural and The Handmaid's Tale, and of course everybody's favorite Brad Pitt movie, A River Runs Through It.

Our lovely city has also been mentioned a whopping 11 times on "America's Favorite Quiz Show" - aka 'Jeopardy!' Most of the questions are super easy for Missoulians, but there are a few that totally schooled me...
