Title: What's on TV?
Post by: AnasAbdin on 26 Jun 2017, 21:48
Like the sister thread *Guess the Movie Title* try to guess what's on TV now, a guess should be complete though mentioning the title, season and episode numbers as well.
Here's something to begin with:

Are you serious about having to name the exact season and episode numbers?! 8-0

The show's name isn't enough? I'm guessing that episode number especially will just be a trip to google for 99% of people, and that's not much fun.

How about season and/or episode number (no google rule) for extra kudos, or as a tie-breaker?

At least you could try!
You know.. someone can guess the title as a lead 8-)

Okay, but be prepared for pages of number spam guesses after that. (laugh)

How about a brief description of what happened in the episode like: "Oh, that's the episode where >character< found out the truth about >matter< but was killed by >character< before they could tell anyone." (with spoiler tag)

Well it's NBC. So I'll start with only NBC show I know off the top of my head:
Law and Order?
No idea about season but I'll guess. Season 17 Episode 4

Well depending on what happens next... is it the series finale?
(How much is Google banned? For example, I wouldn't mind checking how many episodes are in Season 3, so that I could say the episode number instead of just 'finale')

Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Mandle on 29 Jun 2017, 15:18
Interesting gameplay concept so far:

Recognize the TV show and then play Mastermind to narrow down the season and episode.

I'm not being snarky. Maybe it could be fun, but what happens if someone spams every available numbers in one post?

Same action.

Like I said, I wasn't being snarky. I actually think the gameplay of the Mastermind round after the TV show had been guessed could be fun.

I was just asking if limits for guessing season/episode could be a potential issue... (papa... LOL!)
Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Stupot on 29 Jun 2017, 18:15
I personally don't think guessing numbers is fun (unless it's dates on IRC trivia). If someone knows a show well enough to know the episode number, then they probably know the episode name as well. And I think that would be a fun chance for people to show off their geeky TV knowledge. But if it becomes apparent no one knows the episode and is just guessing numbers then we might as well move onto the next round.

Title: Re: What's on TV?

Okay that makes sense. So for the Mastermind Round we need the right episode title. I like that.
But who is geeky enough that he doesn't need to google what the name of s08e22 of Dallas has been? So I think googling the title is okay. I trust you guys :D


For the last one it was "Yakimono" btw.

AnasAbdin: Right Show, wrong episode title. Here is another picture if you wanna try again. If not just post another show and I will tell you the right one:

That's the "life of pi" actor!

So this must be EP 4

Nicholas Brody aka Damian Lewis? 8-0

Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Stupot on 21 Jul 2017, 08:21
Yep, it is episode 7.
but I think you're confusing the actor in the 3rd picture. That's the Pakistani counter-terrorism guy, Asar Khan. The kid from Life of Pi , Ibrahim, was in it but yeah, he was killed off before this episode I think.

No, it should go to your screen immideatly instead of wasting away on a watchlist. I didn't like the first few episodes all that much but I'm really glad I stuck with it. And now I can't wait for the series finale.

For the curious, the screenshot was season 3 episode 10.

No idea for the first two, but the third I think might be from the episode where the main character is on a date with the NATO secratery (I'm good with names, aren't I? :-[) for the first time and then buys the walkman - that's why I think it's this episode. Which would be S1 E4 or E5? Maybe ;)

He isn't the one who wants to get in there and he tries to reach something behind the cupboard...

Funnily enough when I first saw that I thought of The Craft but a) wasn't sure if they're making a Craft TV show and b) the girls look too young.

A Craft TV show would be awesome (I bet someone in LA is already thinking of it).

Jumped, Is that Alias or something?

Compared to a lot of other showes for that age group, it's fairly intelligent. And there's very little "teen drama", if any. All in all, it's a suspencful story for teens and a feel good show for adults, I'd say.

Oh! It was!

Then I guess that's Leo in the foreground? Let me try and guess the episode as well... Is it the one with the flashbacks to how Josh and the others came to work for the Bartlet campaign? (Leo saying "I think we're exactly that dumb", Josh hearing Bartlet speak honestly to dairy farmers, pulling Sam out of his evil lawfirm, etc.)

Using my tried-and-true "whatever I'm watching this particular moment" method, here's the next clue:

Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Kweepa on 03 Jan 2018, 21:30
That is Leo, yup, but it's S1E22, when they use 'the signal' to communicate while Bartlet is doing a town hall.

That looks near-future (with the cool old fashioned lamp and the mysterious middle eastern chap in the picture).
Is it an episode of Black Mirror?

Another screenie showing the main characters:

(http://i64.tinypic.com/y97l.jpg)

This is a show I discovered while I was in Australia and I became quite the fan!

Obviously it's a show for kids, and an educational one at that, and aimed at an audience of 5-7 year olds, but the quality of the acting, writing, and production really grabbed me and I ended up watching it quite a bit and had a lot of laughs and also a lot of fun figuring out what the "lesson" was in each episode before it was revealed.

Best show for little kids since Blue's Clues in my opinion. Also I think adventure game fans would have fun with it trying to figure out the puzzles before the agents solve them. There was one where whatever was placed on a table disappeared until they put two things at the same time and then they didn't. Then they tried putting one more thing and everything disappeared. Then one of the restaurant owners jumped onto the table to try to save the things and he disappeared. And that's when the agents got their first lead but they had to be careful not assuming too much or they would never get the guy back. It explains the scientific method on this kind of level that really little kids can grasp.

And so many tropes! The agents even have a boss who is always angry and shouting at them all the time when they mess up, and she is adorable!

It's basically The X-Files for little kids and it is awesome!
Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Mandle on 18 Jan 2018, 15:37
Is this thread just dead or does nobody know this show?

I watched the first two episodes with a 4-year-old student today over lunch and she totally understood the concept of zeros being used to build larger numbers.

The genius of the episode is that they teach this by showing large numbers of vital things being reduced by factors of ten every time the "number hog" villain steals a zero, instead of showing an increase in value. Little kids grasp the concept of reduction much better than the concept of growth. They understand what having something taken away from them means to them: It sucks!

There is also a subplot where one of the main characters is about to turn 10 years old tomorrow but has the zero stolen from his birthday card so he will be a one-year-old baby again if they can't solve the case. So it gets personal!

Also, I love the stereotyped angry chief's comment of "I'm too young for this."

Post by: Danvzare on 23 Jan 2018, 12:48
I thought Sanctuary was a terrible show, and yet I still watched every episode.
The things that annoyed me the most was that they called the monsters "Abnormals" despite the show claiming that they were natural and normal. Maybe it's just me but calling them "Abnormals" is worse than simply calling them monsters. But the thing that annoyed me more than anything else, was how the Cabal (I think that's how you write their name), which were hyped up to be a big evil organisation and the main villain for season 1, were completely destroyed off screen, early on in the next season.
The show definitely got better as the seasons went by, but I have no idea why I kept watching it.

I'm not sure what show to put up, so I'll just choose something that I'm currently watching, and see if anyone can guess it.

I don't know what the tv show is, however something that always got me about some of the animated shows was how much the characters were "cartoony", but the backgrounds were more artistic the further back it went. For instance, looking at the girls hair it doesnt show individual strands but rather clumps of hair all together like it was glued together in clumps, however the trees in the near foreground are a little more detailed in the branches with leaves but not individual leaves, but the trees in the far background you can see each branch in detail. Granted you don't see the individual leaves but you couldn't see that in a photograph either. does that make sense?

Not sure what's making you think it's a soap opera. No, you're on the wrong track.

Another hint: It was canceled after one season/series, but then someone else bought the rights, retitled it (very much for the better!), and made it enough of a success that it was revived and is now up to Season 3.

Well it did get one British season (of four episodes) before being cancelled and redone as an American series for two seasons.
So it seemed like a good fit.

Fair enough, though those were really just two separate adaptation attempts (I wasn't even aware of the British one) rather than the same series being revived.

Nope, but again getting closer.

Hmm, did not expect this to be so difficult, given that the last screenshot shows all the main characters clearly.

I had to edit out the actual title of the show in this shot, which is something of a clue in itself:

Time for some last-ditch hints, I suppose:

-It's a Netflix show now, originally it ran on Channel 4
-It's a rom-com/sitcom set in Glasgow (though I don't think any of the main cast do the accent)
-You might recognize several members of the cast in the last few screens from Misfits

And if that's not enough...

The poster in the screenshot above this one is a major clue.

Lovesick: Le Orginagelee  :tongue:

Scrotal Recall :wink:
Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Snarky on 09 Feb 2018, 21:16
Correct!

It's a good series: funny and quite sweet, with a neat flashback structure. Since nobody seems to have heard of it: A chronic romantic is diagnosed with chlamydia, and has to contact all his past sexual partners to tell them to get tested. As he awkwardly reconnects with his exes, the show looks back at each relationship, gradually filling in the history that has brought him and his friends to where they are today. Sort of similar to (500) Days of Summer or How I Met Your Mother in concept, but done in a much more low-key and British way.

It takes a couple of episodes to quite find its feet (these screens are from ep. 3, the first really good one), but I would definitely recommend it, and I'm surprised it didn't ring any bells around here.

"Scrotal Recall" was just a terrible title, though. Completely misrepresented the tone of the show. Lovesick still works as a pun and fits much better.
Title: Re: What's on TV?

Scrotal Recall is an obvious case of thinking of a title and building the show around it.

Ash vs. Evil Dead is a wonderful return to the mood of the original movies by the people who made them when they were young, and now, when older, still remember how to recapture that insane magic and give it a bit more maturity without forgetting that it must be insane first and foremost...

Oh, and Lee Majors, the nicest guy, playing the asshole father of Ash, one of the greatest assholes on film of all-time...

Welcome Back Kotter

I heard Tarantino say in an interview that the character of Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction was named "Vincent" as an in-joke that he was "Vinnie" from Welcome Back Kotter grown up and become a hitman (and changed his last name to be cooler and protect his family)...

Kotter would be so ashamed of him...

You're absolutely correct. It's interesting what we remember, sometimes. The reason I said it's easy to guess the episode is because the show wasn't in black and white but in colour, except for one episode: the pilot.

It's because Aykroyd wasn't acting in a role, but hosted it as himself. It's listed under the "Self" tab on IMDB.

I think I must have seen this at some point in the 90s, but it made zero impression whatsoever. And I recognized Colin Fox but couldn't put a name to the face. :-\  (Edit: He was in the Maniac Mansion show as Ed Edison!)

I can picture Dan Akroyd saying something like:

and each episode is an isolated case thats supernatural like the x-files, and I feel like I have seen several episodes of this back in the 90's, but can't for the life of me remember what it's called.

Wasn't Extreme Ghostbusters animated? Unless there were some kind of live action segments before or after the show (which I remembered none, unless they cut them in the local broadcast).

As someone mentioned Imdb I went there out of curiosity  and I think I found what show it was (it's been running for 5 years right?). Since I cheated and that I've never heard of this show (probably never shown here) I'll pass.
Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Cassiebsg on 06 Apr 2018, 19:08
That is not cheating! That is investigative work! Cheating would be taking the picture and run it through google images hoping to get a hit. :P

And no, it's not an animated Extreme Ghostbusters... but I have no more pics... except maybe the name of the show...

Sorry, I'm trying, but think you need to give more clues. I haven't even been able to figure out the genre... Though, that last 2 pics seem to have actors I probably should recognize... but I haven't watched "new" (read as in from 2000's) shows in a long time so the one thing I seem to agree with my self is thar I haven't watched it. And since I'm not recognizing faces and names... :-[

Clue 1: That's the same woman in the second and latest screenshot. She's one of the leads.
Clue 2: As you can see from the aspect ratio/image quality, it's a modern show.
Clue 3: As you can see from the fashions/hair styles, it's not set in the present.
Clue 4: All smiles seen in these pictures are faked by the characters.

Snarky took my words, though I think it's not White Collar (cause I've seen the show and neither scene rings a bell... then again my memory isn't that good anyway (roll) )...

But I'm going to say The Last Tycoon, since he (the actor) has been in it (but I haven't seen it... someone else take the other show (laugh) ).
Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Sinitrena on 01 May 2018, 15:45
White Collar is correct. The episode is season 1 episode 8, Hard Sell.

(In pic two we have (left to right): Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey, Justin Grace as Brad, Jonathan Tucker as Avery Phillips and in the background two extras whose names I can't find.)

But I'm going to say The Last Tycoon, since he (the actor) has been in it (but I haven't seen it... someone else take the other show (laugh) ).

The Last Tycoon takes place in the thirties...

I would agree to a limit as you don't want someone guessing every show that they can think of, but I think the limit should be 2 or 3, just because if you make a guess then you have to wait until the person give you a correct or wrong response before you can try another one.

Post by: ManicMatt on 07 May 2018, 13:38
Correct! It ran for only one series, a sci-fi comedy. I have it on DVD but only seen it the once ages ago. (I'll get around to watching it again someday..)

You know a lot of actors, specially tv actors, are in many many series as guest starts or secondary or even extras in 1 or 2 episodes... But you only "notice" them once they become a regular/main cast in a show that isn't cancelled before it gets a chance to live... So he's one of the main actors in Stargate: Atlantis... that's at least the first time I noticed he was "alive". (laugh)
His actors credits include 40 entries, mostly tv series and tv movies.

LOL
That is mean, that is just shooting something and hope it sticks... well, that actor has been in several STs... though not Voyager Enterprise... there's a clue for you... and no, those two scenes are not traps, that is what the show is about, where and when... so I thought that would be a great clue right there. :)

EDIT: Oops... :-[ Was suppose to be "Not ST Enterprise"... tongue run into the truth.. (roll)
Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: VampireWombat on 14 May 2018, 13:22
That could refer to Armin Shimerman, Jeffrey Combs, or even Brian Thompson. And those are just people I can think of off the top of my head...
I know it's not the 4400.
The 2nd picture makes me keep thinking of The Visitor, but I don't remember a beach...
But I'm guessing the Visitor (1997) anyway since it has Richard Cox in some episodes and he seems to have been in at least Star Trek TNG.

Did I actually get it. I didn't watch the show but knew it had something to do with the vietnam or korean war and the helicopter in that last picture reminded me of the Huey choppers in those conflicts.

I am guessing Star Trek Next Generation.
I believe this was when Worf was in the holodeck with his son acting out a western fantasy.
If I am correct Worf is the one in back and his son is the one in brown walking away from the camera.
Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: VampireWombat on 24 May 2018, 16:45
Data is the one in black. Alexander is the one walking away from him. Worf is the one in red with the vest. And Troi is in front of him.
Shame Data is only shown once. But I guess showing him in his multiple roles would have easily told people it was a Fistful of Datas.
I guess Worf and Alexander's haircuts really are as bad as I thought.

Short-lived '80's series riding on the coat-tails of the Indiana Jones movies. I remember it being quite fun but I was a kid at the time. I'd say it was probably more like extremely cheesey fun.

AUTOMAN!!!

(I missed the shot with Cursor in it because my browser didn't load it fast enough... Dead giveaway for sure!)

(I always wondered how Automan managed to turn his car on a gentle bend like on a country road seeing as it seemed he could only turn exactly 90 degrees... Did he have to bounce from one side of the road to the other like 50 times per turn? I remember a scene where he drove along a gently winding mountain road but they hid the turn behind a mountain in the foreground to avoid the problem.)

It sure is The Goodies!!! A huge part of my childhood!

That episode's name is "Kitten Kong" and also that clip was in the opening title of the show so anyone who knows the show should know the clip.

The show is well worth a watch by the way... It was kind of the "family-friendly" version of Monty Python and actually there was an episode where John Cleese popped out of a magic lamp and said "And now for something completely different..." and The Goodies said "Oh, sod off!!!" and he shouted "KID'S SHOW!!!" at them... Classic stuff!

I just watched an early Bewitched episode the other day where Darren first finds out that Samantha is immortal and won't grow older with him. Despite the fact that she probably should have mentioned this to him before they got married, it was actually a very deep and touching story: He goes to the park to think things over and an elderly couple walks by talking about the day they first met and the look on his face is quite touching... My memories of Bewitched was that it was just a formula show per episode: ACT I: Samantha (or her mother) uses magic which makes Darren's life difficult, ACT II: Their secret almost gets busted, ACT III: Everything gets fixed by magic just in time for nothing to have changed for the start of the next episode. Which is the way most of them go, but now and then they have an interesting and well-written twist...

Anyway, next:

Indeed!

It's from the mostly forgotten '80's attempted reboot of The Twilight Zone from the episode "A Little Peace And Quiet".

Well done! Just curious: How did you get it? Was it the movie names on the sign or have you actually seen it?

(I'm surprised nobody went for the bait. I was sure someone would guess "The Day After", which was a TV only movie/miniseries...)
Title: Re: What's on TV?
Post by: Cassiebsg on 11 Jun 2018, 16:47
Just a lucky guess to be honest. The show is about "weird" events... and a rocket like that flying above on a US(?) land, sounded like "this is going to be something like holocaust or something"... I might have watch it, in fact 99,99% sure I have, but I don't remember either the episode nor the sign. (roll) My next guess would have been "The outer limits"... (laugh)

anyway, standby for the next one a little later. :)

I'm not sure I'd go as far as fan. But I did watch all 4 seasons a couple of weeks ago. Not sure why I was thinking it was just 3 seasons...

I figure that the only other show I can think of with mole women would be guessed too easily. So, this one is borderline for working since it's technically a movie. But it did work as a pilot for a tv show...
It was re-edited as 2 episodes. So I guess it's not borderline after all.

I think that's  Michael Ontkean (from Twin Peaks), and if so it's got to be The Rookies.
You are correct.
I was surprised someone didn't recognize Kate Jackson in the picture with Jim Nabors and guess Charlie's Angels.
The Rookies was a good TV show about the 3 cops fresh out of the academy where the blonde one was married to Kate Jackson who worked as a nurse.
and the SC stood for South Central. They worked in LA.

Finally found the time to take some screenshots. This is an underappreciated gem:

Damnit! One of my favorite shows and beaten to it!

I haven't seen the episode that the first image is from though.

Favorites are the one where
Larry has the premature ejaculation issues and wears the condom with the desensitizing fluid inside-out by accident and then his wife can't feel anything...erm...down there for days.
"I never thought I'd say this to another man but... I want you to look at my wife's vagina."

and the conclusion to the story of
Larry starring in "The Producers" stage show. That's probably the cleverest meta-comedy I've ever seen! Brilliant!

Well, take heart; it's not in fact Curb. You're on the right network, though.

The League?

No. And Curb is HBO, The League is FX or FXX.

I live in Japan and only have crappy basic cable. I don't know what actual channel anything is originally on until I see an episode and it has the logo at the start.

I vaguely remember seeing the episode now that HBO is mentioned. This means it was one of the shows I watched last year when I had a free trial of HBO Go.
I'm guessing Extras.
