  4. Hi everyone,

    You're off to a great start this morning with these identifications.

    Hugh: all four of your identifications are correct! Excellent job, sir!

    jdigriz: Yes, you got a relatively obscure one, there, and I tried hard to capture the exact moment where you could LEAST see McGavin. Great job!

    David: More excellent identifications, sir! You correctly id'd the Maya Statue from "The Taybor" and also recognized Twin Peaks too! Excellent. Number 3 is not The Tomorrow People, but that's a great surmise!

    I belive seven are still are on the board...

    best to all!

  5. David Colohan9:13 AM

    Hello again,
    Having a guess that 1. is The Twilight Zone's 'The Little People'?

  6. David Colohan9:15 AM

    Another one I spotted...
    13. Firefly: 'Jaynestown'.

  7. 13. Jayne Cobb - Firefly

  8. 1 Twilight Zone, the episode where astronauts find a race of little people and one of astronauts enslaves the them

    5. Star Trek The Animated Series

    11. Norliss Files with Roy Thinnes

    13. Firefly, Jayne hero of Canton

  9. woodchuckgod - who-secretly-wants-to-thwap-openid-errors12:09 PM

    #12 would be John Crichton from Farscape, season 2's "Look at the Princess" story.

  10. Hi everyone,

    Great job on all these ids! The list is narrowing down...


  11. 3. Star Trek: "The Man Trap"

  12. Jake Lockley9:19 PM

    10 is from The X-Files.

  13. more great guesses!

    Howard: # 3 is not from the Man Trap, but that's a terrific surmise.

    And Jake, yes, number 10 is from The X-Files. Great job!


  14. John, is 3 from "Star Trek: Who Mourns for Adonais?"

  15. Hi Howard,

    That's a terrific guess, but no, number #3 is not from any episode of Star Trek. However, it is from a series with the word "star" in the title, if that clue helps...


  16. Chris G3:05 PM

    #11 is from Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- the statue of Akathla that Angelus was using in a ritual to unleash hell, I believe.

  17. John, based on the temporal proximity of 3 (between Lost in Space and Kolchak), I'm guessing it's an image from "The Starlost."

  18. Chris G: Excellent! That's right. The image is from Buffy the Vampire Slayer:"Becoming Part II." Great job!

    Howard: Yep, you got it. That image is from The Starlost: "The Goddess Calabra!"
