I have had a few conversations with members trying to come up with other games to do. They love the games.

One came up with this game idea, and I will suggest it:

"What show is this from" where you give a quote or situation and people try to guess what show it's from. For instance "two friends,out of 6 have a child together and the mother of the baby is told she has to go to Paris for work"

The answer would of course be "Friends"

Or another: 4 female friends, one is very joyful with men, one is very selective with men, one marries her baby's dad after an accidental pregnancy, one writes a column about her relationships" etc

that would of course be Sex and the City.

So what do you think?

Sounds like fun...4 friends...all a little crazy. One is a comedian, one is a female editor, one can't hold on to a job, and one never really has a job...now this is easy everyone!!!

Seinfeld!!!

What show is this quote from and who said it?:
"Individuality is fine ... as long as we do it together!"

(Hint ... comedy, ran 10 years, highest rated "last show" in television history)

Grey's Anatomy!

In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the police who investigate crime, and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories. *DUN DUN.*

American Idol

This series (one of my favorites growing up) is about a man and his robots who are trapped on a satellite in space and forced to watch a selection of terrible movies, especially science fiction B-movies, where they make fun of the movies. It ran for 11 years, both in Comedy Central and Sci-Fi channel.

I liked the program too...

Surface

Easily tv's greatest paranormal series. Produced at the same time as (original) Twilight Zone.
