The Cult-TV Faces of: The Sign


  1. #1 is The Prisoner
    #4 I believe would be Twin Peaks
    #9 - I'm going to go with Smallville

  2. Hey John, Happy New Year!

    Here are some answers:

    2 UFO?

    3 V the 1984 TV Series

    4 Twin Peaks

    6 Millenium?

    7 Buffy

    8 X-Files

    9 Smallville


  3. 1. The Prisoner
    2. UFO
    3. V: The Series
    4. Twin Peaks
    5. American Gothic
    7. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
    8. Joan of Arcadia
    9. Smallville

  4. Some I'm sure of, some are guesses...

    1) The Prisoner (they still use that font all around Portmerion!)
    2) UFO
    3) Is this The Six Million Dollar Man?
    4) Twin Peaks, natch.
    5) American Gothic
    6) I have no clue.
    7) Buffy
    8) The X Files - I think this is the name of the housing estate that Mulder and Scully go undercover in?
    9) Smallville
    10) Complete guess - The Lost Room?

  5. Hi everyone,

    Terrific identifications, by everyone!

    Sirrus, you accurately picked up numbers 1, 4 and 9 (The Prisoner, Twin Peaks and Smallville). Nice job!

    Henry: Happy New Year to you as well, my friend. You did a great job nabbing 2, 3, 6, 7, and 8 from the list (UFO, V, Millennium, Buffy, The X-Files). Awesome!

    Howard, your ids were awesome too, as is usual, sir! :) From the list remaining, you nabbed number 5, which is indeed American Gothic!

    And Strange Powers -- you rock! More terrific identifications, all the way around.

    The ids, for the record are:
    1. The Prisoner ("Arrival")
    2. UFO ("Identified")
    3. V: The Series
    4. Twin Peaks
    5. American Gothic ("A Tree Grows in Trinity")
    6. Millennium ("Wide Open")
    7. Buffy the Vampire Slayer ("Becoming Part 2")
    8. The X-Files ("Arcadia")
    9. Smallville ("Pilot")

    That only leaves the elusive and difficult # 10. Lost Room was a brilliant guess, but that's not it.

    Any takers?

    best to all, and thanks again for playing. You are all terrific!


  6. #10 is "Veronica Mars", isn't it?

  7. Michael:

    BINGO! You got it! Yep, that's the Camelot Motel from Veronica Mars all right. Nice Job!
