    "We have had, in the past, "drive-by" posters who would answer clues but never post any of their own. " "A pox on you and your ancestors!" - Ed Norton.

    Yes. Although "crisis" might refer to how we're running around this particular week. Classes are ending for the year, and parents and teachers all want to end with something. Naturally, they pile all of that on us poor parents, who now have a doubled agenda on our plate.
  4. https://www.greasespotcafe.com/ipb/topic/9013-outreach-beyond-vpws-congregation/ Here's the raw link for "Outreach Beyond vpw's congregation."
  5. We discussed the book somewhat in the thread, "Outreach Beyond vpw's congregation".

  7. Thanks, DogLover. I see that book by Mrs. W. sells for $102.99 on Amazon. Think I'll pass. :-) It's not THAT important to me now ... it was published long after I left (in 1987) and I have enough history of TWI stashed in my own files to fill several more books of my own. But don't think I will write any more books pertaining to TWI. One was enough for me!

    By "Crisis," here, I presume you mean "Elseworlds." George

    I loved the June Taylor dancers and Frank Fontaine (as "Crazy Guggenheim"). Good work, Grace. Although the clue was well-known to me (and almost, WW), that's the kind of thing to post here. We have had, in the past, "drive-by" posters who would answer clues but never post any of their own. Give me some time. George

    We're going to power through the Flash episodes, then Crisis, THEN go back and watch the LoT episodes. I'm looking forward to the comment you mentioned. We've seen references to the "red skies" and the Crisis since Eobard Thawne's newspaper headlines were displayed, at least in "Flash."

    Yeah, in the comics, the only reason the Monitor appeared in Annuals and whatevers was to establish he'd been around, as a preparation for CoIE. Now there's a bunch of Monitors, which makes no sense if they're supposed to be anything like the original. So, we had Monitor cameos, and then CoIE where we saw a lot of him and his opponent.

    Ok, I caught up in "Arrow" and saw the teaser. I liked that the first 2 bodies I saw were recognizable- that was Stargirl and STRIPE. (Remember the Star-Spangled Kid and Stripesy? Well, Stargirl found the Kid's belt and went into action. Stripesy put on an exoskeletal armor to keep an eye on her. At least in the comics, where she how also carries Starman's cosmic rod/staff.)

    I've not seen the conclusion, but I suspected CRISIS was coming when the Monitor showed up.

    I assume that I'm the only one who has seen the crossover, so I'll try not to "spoil" anything of major relevance. First, WATCH THE DARN THING! I thought it was quite well done, though why the Monitor would give the Book of Destiny to such a dweeb is not really explained. Correct sequence: Flash, Arrow, Supergirl. Some references to current Arrowverse events, but nothing that would keep you from watching the crossover before catching up on the other series. Lots of "Easter eggs" in the Smallville and Gotham sequences. Note, no Legends. The "mid-season finale" of LoT was quite entertaining, and also about alternate realities. A cute bit was at the beginning, when Steel asks Gideon if they missed anything while they were off the ship. Gideon: "You missed calls from Barry Allen, Oliver Queen, and Kara Zor-el." Steel: "Sounds like an annual crossover. Pass!" It's already been decided that next year's crossover will be "Crisis on Infinite Earths." Two of the tragedies from that comic series were alluded to in the current crossover. George
  15. I think that must be the book Mrs. Wierwille wrote, with her daughter Karen's help ... I had left TWI before it was published, but I have seen a copy. Checked Amazon ... it is called VICTOR PAUL WIERWILLE: BORN AGAIN TO SERVE. Available for purchase if you choose to spend an arm and a leg ...

    Ha! Thanks for posting so promptly! Ok let's see.... Although this show was technically before my time, that particular comedian- and that tagline- are still well-known (somewhat) to this day. Was this show "THE HONEYMOONERS"?

    Yes, everything he said was true. It's your turn, Grace. Usually, we try to post some sort of clue about once a day, but that's not a rule, just a suggestion. ANYTHING that would help someone guess this show without THEM looking it up is fair as a clue. We have to guess based on what you post, and what we THINK- we can't look it up or we disqualify ourselves for the round. (We work on the Honor System, here.) It's a good idea for the giver of the clues (in this case, you) to look things up so you know the clue is accurate. The guessers must not look up anything. And yes, we prefer to go from the harder clues to the easy clues until someone gets it. (It adds to the fun of us guessing.)

    George, I will try to do this right. This comedy show was on Saturday night for years, and years. It's host was a male comedian, whose favorite saying was, " how sweet it is."

    You are correct, Grace. Which means you're up. Which means we would like YOU to post clues to a new TV show. Note that this particular thread gives a lot of latitude as to what constitutes and acceptable clue. We usually use trivia about the show (which you can find at IMDb or Wikipedia, among other sites); but (as I did), you can use cast members, episode titles, whatever strikes your fancy. I would start with more challenging clues first, and then make them easier if people don't get it initially. George
