Auntiehill's Screencap Challenge 2: The Couch Potato Wars

Yes, it's that time of year again, when I have waaaaayy too much time on my hands. I have put together another collection of TV screencaps for your viewing pleasure. Last summer's game may have been a tad difficult, so I have eased up a little. I just hope this isn't too easy for all you hard-core couch potatoes out there.

Last year's winner was Emh, who successfully guessed 26 of 36 correctly. Locutus of Bored was close behind with 25. Think you can do better? Give it a go!

How do you play, you ask?
First:

DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS IN THE THREAD!!!!!!!

That just ruins the fun for everyone, quite frankly, so don't do it. You are welcome to comment in the threads, but do NOT (under pain of my certain and swift vengeance) reveal the answers to the screencaps. Besides, no one likes a party-pooper.

PM YOUR ANSWERS TO ME!

You can send as many PMs as you like; just be sure to let me know which is your FINAL decision.

CONTEST ENDS MONDAY FEB. 9th AT MIDNIGHT, US EASTERN TIME. I'll post the winners on Tuesday.

Ready to play?




Are you sure?

28 is the only one I can identify. I need to watch more TV.

^Yes, get right on that! You're falling behind in wasting your life!

I tried to use my hubby as a guinea pig for the challenge, since we've watched a lot of these shows together, and he kept responding with, "Oh...that's the guy....from that show...with that girl....and the stuff. The Whatitscalled show."

I'll see your 28 and raise you a 34, but then I'm out too. Why do I even own a TV? *Failure*

Re: Auntiehill's Screencap Challenge 2: The Couch Potato Wars

#28 was easy (and one of the best scenes from that particular show). I can't believe no one who's posted said they got #6, I thought that was a relatively easy one.

#9 is kind of iconic, isn't it? #22 would be a complete guess for me, but I think I know #39.

I could only manage to guess ten of them, but I feel pretty confident about them all. Man, that was tough.

What are we supposed to give for an answer ? The name of the show or the specific episode ?

Just the name of the show will be fine. PM me with your answers.

Swap 28 for 6 and I'm in the same boat.

Re: Auntiehill's Screencap Challenge 2: The Couch Potato Wars

8, 20, 32, 34, 40 are the ones i think i know...
Maybe 4, 5 and 16...
I even know the name of the animal in 20...
I think 40 even gives a very big clue to the show itself...
I'll send a message...
