screencap Friday: what the flick? #110

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

  • Cyndy

    Law and Order SVU?

  • Looks like a rag doll, and the coloring of the screen suggests sepia flashback… I’m going to say an episode of Mad Men.

  • Victor Plenty

    Something about the quality of the light and the texture of the materials makes me want to guess this is from the short-lived television spinoff from Planet of the Apes.

    Or maybe it’s only my memories of the show that are so hazy… but anyway, that’s all I’ve got for now.

  • MaryAnn

    Wow. All *so* wrong. :->

  • Muzz

    A child in bed, holding a crude home made ragdoll/teddy bear with a stick or a pencil tied to his or her finger.
    The picture could be seventies English video, but the lighting seems far too low and risky by those standards.

    In short, I have no idea.

  • “Friday the Thirteenth: The Series”?

  • Brian Clemen’s Thriller?

  • VT

    Little House on the Prairie?

  • MaryAnn

    No one’s even warmer. But VT might be warmest, just by dint of guessing a show set in an historical period. But just further back in history…

  • LaSargenta


  • cicely5


  • Althea

    John Adams?

  • Masterpiece Theatre?

  • MaryAnn

    I win! No one guessed: It’s *Roar,* the short-lived series set in ancient Britain starring Heath Ledger and Vera Farmiga.

  • LaSargenta

    …set in ancient Britain…

    Hibernia. Not Britannia. So Irish, not British. (Thanks to imdb’s listing giving the name Conor which is NOT a british name but an erse one.)

    And I was closest in the time-frame/geography equation: Cadfael was set around the early 12th C. AD (Or C.E., as we say now) in Shrewsbury which is in Shropshire which is practically Wales and this show is supposed to be the early 5th C. C.E. (Jumps around room for guessing at this considering she doesn’t even own a tv!)

  • Well, in view of MaryAnn’s ethnic background, you can’t really expect her to know that, LaSargenta. ;-)

    After all, it’s not like the Irish spent centuries fighting against British occupation…
