screencap Friday: what the flick? #124

Friday fun! Here’s a screen capture from a DVD… and just to make things harder for 2010, this one is from a TV show which may or may not be in my collection (it’s sooo much easier to do screengrabs now that Netflix is streaming to my computer). Guess the TV show — you don’t need to guess the episode, just the show — and earn the respect of me and your fellow FlickFilosopher.com readers. One guess per comment — no fair hogging all the guesses.

easter eggs
explore:

  • Twin Peaks

  • Firefly.

  • Kat

    Rome.

  • MaryAnn

    Nope, nope, and nope.

  • Dokeo

    X-Files?

  • Eric

    Carnivale?

  • Patrick

    Wild Wild West (the TV series, not the awful movie)?

  • The Tudors?

  • possum

    Kung Fu – I’m getting a 60s tv vibe

  • MaryAnn

    Nope. And I can’t say that anyone’s really close, either.

  • The Avengers?

  • MaryAnn

    Nope.

    Here’s a clue: It is not a historical or futuristic story. It’s of recent vintage and set in the present day.

  • kaithymos

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

  • MaryAnn

    Ooo, I finally got a really tough one!

  • Dokeo

    OK, I know I aready guessed once but…Kings?

  • Jonathan Creek?

  • MaryAnn

    OK, I know I aready guessed once but…Kings?

    Not *Kings.* (And not *Jonathan Creek.*)

    But it’s okay to guess again if I’ve told you you’re wrong. I just don’t want someone filling up a single comment with 100 guesses, thereby stealing the opportunity to guess from other readers. Make your best guess first, and when I tell you you’re wrong, feel free to make your second-best guess, and so on.

    Here’s another hint: It’s a contemporary story, but within that contemporary story is a historical story.

  • Dave

    Life on Mars

  • MaryAnn

    Nope.

    Just a few more hours left to guess. Here’s another hint: It’s not an American show, and it’s not a British show, but it is in the English language…

  • Dave

    Corner Gas? You reviewed the first season a few weeks ago so it’s first thing I came up with.

    I know no one else guessed since me but you did tell me know and it’s not got long left and I’m stuck working the late shift.

  • Dokeo

    Here’s hoping 3rd time is the charm: Slings & Arrows?

  • MaryAnn

    Yes, Dokeo wins: It’s *Slings and Arrows*!
