Guess that TV Show (Special "I'm Being a Jackass" Edition)  
A meme snagged from maerchen:
1. Go to IMDB.com and look up 10 TV shows you like(d).
2. Post three official IMDB "Plot Keywords" for these 10 picks.
3. Have your friends guess the show names.

And without further adieu:

1. Inanimate Object / Supernatural (NB: there are only two plot keywords at IMDB)
2. Religious Differences / Aircraft Carrier / Extinction
3. Anti Hero / Teacher Student Relationship / Boxer Rebellion
4. Future Noir / Space Western / Fatalism
5. Bermuda Triangle / Flashback Sequence / Title Spoken By Character
6. Desert Planet / Space Western / Gun Fu
7. Famous Opening Theme / Character Name In Title / New Jersey
8. Anti Hero / Space Western / Mandarin
9. Actor Playing Multiple Roles / Different Gags During Credits / Hero From The Past
10. Interracial Relationship / Dungeons And Dragons / Evil Lawyer

ETA: Adding more, because they were too good to not include:

11. Teen Angst / Dead Sea Scrolls / Homoeroticism
12. Famous Opening Theme / Anthropomorphic / Triplets
13. Mannequin / Hocus Pocus / Magic
14. Prostitute / Sitcom / Café
15. Bad Guy Turns Good / Fall From Height / Tyrannosaurus

And now . . . the answers (with first correct guessers):

1. Wonderfalls - xcorvis (there should be more than two fucking keywords, damnit)
2. Battlestar Galactica - musicin68
3. Buffy: The Vampire Slayer - abaddonx99
4. Cowboy Bebop - maerchen
5. Lost abaddonx99
6. Trigun - trickygrin
7. House, M.D. - masui
8. Firefly - abaddonx99
9. Futurama - malcubed
10. Angel - abaddonx99
11. Neon Genesis Evangelion - abaddonx99
12. Ducktales - abaddonx99
13. Today's Special - nemoren
14. Night Court - neosis (I think)
15. Transformers - masui

Dude, you've got like 3 that could be "Firefly", but I'm guessing 8 is the real McCoy. Maybe "Highlander" for 7. All the others are just -_-'
King of the Voidabaddonx99 on April 11th, 2007 03:18 am (UTC)
I almost want to say 12 is TMNT, but the triplets thing throws that off.
Wendymaerchen on April 11th, 2007 04:01 am (UTC)
I *think* 3 is Buffy. And if 8 is Firefly, does that make 4 Cowboy Bebop?
King of the Voidabaddonx99 on April 11th, 2007 04:20 am (UTC)
I'll agree that 4 is Bebop, which got me thinking that 2 is "Neon Genesis Evangelion". And I take back my TMNT guess for 12 and put forth "Duck Tales". I was thinking "Biker Mice from Mars" but they don't have a famous theme song.

13 is a kid's show. With a little mouse puppet.

Indeed it is. If you can find the title (by hook or crook or good old-fashioned remembering), you get extra special bonus points!

Well, since you didn't confirm 2 as NGE, I'll assume that was wrong. But I then move that guess to 17! Fuckin' Shinji...

Also, 7 = Sopranos?
King of the Void: emocatabaddonx99 on April 11th, 2007 05:10 am (UTC)
And by 17, I mean 11 *facepalm*
masui on April 11th, 2007 07:36 am (UTC)
15. Heroes?
masui on April 11th, 2007 07:41 am (UTC)
i was gonna guess Sopranos for 7 too, but since that's not right, I'll say House.

Gah, now my brain is leaking out my ear...

#2 is Battlestar Galactica! Yay! Though, until I read your post I never thought of Galactica as an aircraft carrier even thought that is one way to describe her.

Thank you so much for getting that!

Not looking at any comments... random guesses

#1 I got nothin'.

#2 is totally BsG

#3 is Buffy, although I cheated by going through my list of shows you've ever watched and trying to remember if any of them had Boxer Rebellion flashbacks.

#4 is Cowboy Bebop (or maybe 6 is, I've never seen it and am purely guessing)

#5 is Lost

#6 is determined to be Trigun by the law of Economy of Space Westerns, unless it's actually #4

#7 I got nothin' on New Jersey. Who would set a show in that festering pit of New York's backwash?

#8 is Firefly

#9 is Futurama

#10 is Angel?

#11 has got to be Evangelion

#12 Triplets? This one is going to be so obvious, isn't it? But I've got no idea.

#13 Shrug (But it should turn out to be Charmed or some hitherto-unheard-of "Mannequin: The Series")

#14 Double-shrug

#15 isn't Heroes (I checked, as I was very enthused at the thought of "Tyrannosaurus" being listed on its keywords), but it should be.

I'm pretty sure that none of them is Millennium, which is sort of irritating.

Sweet Zombie Jesus that's disturbingly close.
XCorvisxcorvis on April 11th, 2007 04:36 pm (UTC)
Holy Crap 14 is obscure (I cheated).

Want to check of the completed ones? It's kind of hard to see which are done.
Neosisneosis on April 11th, 2007 06:15 pm (UTC)
I don't think "Night Court" is too obscure.

1 is Wonderfalls.
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on April 12th, 2007 02:21 am (UTC)
Absolutely. I'll put up the combined answers now.
