  1. Might as well. Give me the title and artist. Then it's your turn. Wait for confirmation only if you're guessing. "Rebels been rebels since I don't know when."
  2. This could be fun... Some folks were playing this on another message board (not mine) and apparently having a blast. Here's how it works. I name an actor or actress in a movie. Then I name the movie. Then I name ANOTHER actor or actress in that same movie. Theatrical movies only: no TV movies please. This rule added after p.12 The next poster has to name another movie that the second actor was in, another actor in THAT movie, and then another movie the actor was in. No cheating: rely on your memory. Please put your entries in bold so we can see them... It's easier than it sounds. I'll do the first two rounds, so you see the pattern. You pick it up from there: Michael Keaton Batman Returns Michelle Pfeiffer Tequila Sunrise Raul Julia Presumed Innocent Next round...
  3. We've discussed this before, but I thought I'd resurrect the topic. A friend is working on a podcast that will touch on how cults manipulate language and why. My feeling is that giving people a peculiar vocabulary and jargon helps builds group cohesion at the expense of outsiders who use the same words but don't mean the same thing. Examples, "I'm believing for" instead of "I'm praying or hoping for." "Religious" as an insult. I'd like to give her more examples unique to TWI. Suggestions?

  5. No. Not a whole lot on screen. He did serve as executive producer of a show you never would associate him with: Grimm.
  6. I give you three character names, you identify the actor/Actress who played them. Or if you're in the mood, give us three actors who played the same role, and we have to guess the role. Try not to be too obscure, but no need to make it easy. Ready? Go! John Dillinger Tom Hanson James Barrie

    TV Show Mash-Up

    Kermit was kind of a narrator/supporting player. Robin was the star of this special. Ok, next... The producers of this show hired 200 people to take phone calls from complaining viewers after an episode that featured a lesbian wedding. They received 11 complaints. One actress on this series occasionally her character's twin sister on another series. The two series were originally unconnected, but the producers figured they had these two characters played by the same actress... what the hell, why not make them twin sisters? The ditziest character on the show is played by an actress considered the smartest by her castmates.

    Kermit helps a bewitched princess... Wait, did she talk backwards? And Kermit's nephew was like the Frog Prince, only he wasn't a prince but a knight, Sir Robin the Brave? THAT special where Kermit helped a bewitched princess?
  12. Incorrect. Jack McFarlane was a character on a show in the late 90s until 2006. The same character appears on the same show from 2017 to the present. He's been a regular character, played by the same actor, in every season of the show.

    Psycho is correct.

    Ok, so we had three live action series. There's a hint of a movie, if not during the first incarnation then almost certainly during the third. We also had two animated spinoffs about which we know nothing other than their existence. The third live series, though not popular with audiences, did well with critics. The original lasted five seasons. The other two live action series had different titles. Got it. I think. The Muppet Show was the first. The Muppets was the last. Not sure what the middle series was.

    Well, there were multiple Brady Bunch series, but too many to fit this description. Not to mention, the critical acclaim is a stretch for the Bradys. I have a hunch this was animated.

    Movie Mash-Up

    New clue: The director was not fond of this movie when he finished filming it and seriously considered editing it down to a television episode. What changed his mind? The addition of the musical score. The first American movie to show a toilet flushing on screen. The director bought the movie rights to the book anonymously, then bought up as many copies of the book as he could to keep the plot a secret. Inspired multiple sequels, a prequel and a TV series. Remade in 1998. Shot for shot. Leading many to wonder, why? It bombed.

    Ah. Well, I remember it vividly, despite having seen it only once, at its original airing.

    My first guess is Get Smart!, but I'm not quite sure that fits. Get Smart Again was just a TV movie to the best of my knowledge, and the third series was just called Get Smart (and was not critically acclaimed by a longshot).

    When you say you "thought it was awful," you're talking about the third series, right? Also, I'm assuming from your question that the shows did not all have the same name.

    I thought I was the only person not involved in the production who remembered it.

    I am surprised you remembered the 1979 version

    Movie Mash-Up

    Surprised anyone remembered this. The Miracle Worker starred Patty Duke as Helen Keller and Anne Bancroft as Anne Sullivan in 1962. Remade in 1979 with Patty Duke as Anne Sullivan and Melissa Gilbert as Helen Keller. Patty Duke is well known for playing "identical cousins" in "The Patty Duke Show"
