Once again it's about guessing TV shows. I post pictures which contain hints to the show.

All pictures come from the pilot episode of the show.

Some pictures are going to be more obscure than others. For some you just need common knowledge, for some you just have to know the show.

I'm going to post one batch every 3 days - 12 batches altogether - but the solutions won't be posted before the end so you can join at any time.

Point system:
First try: 2 point
Second try: 1 point
All 5 shows in one batch: 1 bonus point
To be the only one to gues a show: 2 bonus points

Your opponents will be here on the forums, my Twitter followers, the members of the StarTrek-Forum (german) and of the DVD Collectors Online forums.

You give your answers via Private Message and if you're reading this coming from Twitter, via Twitter Direct Message.

This afternoon there's going to be the first batch.

Since there has been some confusion: Every picture is from a different show. It's not that each batch shows pictures from the same show.

Everyone keep in mind that even if your first guess was wrong, you always have a second guess.

I'd like to remind you again: The pictures either show something that's very typical for the show. Or they show something that had a great impact on the characters and set the story in motion.

Let me make this clearer with two pictures of shows that are not in the quiz:





First notice the framing (4:3 or 16:9) which allows certain conclusions about the era.

Then you'll need to determine if the picture shows something typical or specific.

The first picture is relatively easy. The "Daily Planet" is Superman's newspaper. And since it's drawn, it's easy to identify as Superman: The Animated Series.

The second picture is more difficult. The 16:9 framing tells you that's a newer show. And that's obviously marijuana in the suitcase. But is this show about drugs, like Weeds? Or is it just the catalyst? In this case the latter, because it's Suits.
