Name the Series!

Recommended Posts

The rules of the game are simple: You have to describe a series (literature, TV, movies, etc.) without naming it, and then the person who posts next has to name it. If they can't name it, they have to come up with a potential name for it.

I'll go first: A detective agency that runs solely on the principle of contrived coincidences.

007 ?

A gorgeous postapocalyptic scout girl with face white of lime or mud tries to take things, vaults and protective suits from a crowd of oafish survivors from a giant space station where the artificial gravity pulls the things not radially but in axial direction.

Hint 1. They have hydrazine which is by unknown reason purple and explodes like a wagon of TNT. (I was awaiting, they would be drinking it, but no, this appeared to be stupid even for them.)

Hint 2. They should be suffering from agoraphobia, but no, they appeared to be enough stupid to have no idea about this.

The Starlost. IIRC, Cordwainer Bird is Harlan Ellison's pseudonym for projects he wished to divest himself from, so I'm guessing he wrote/consulted on the series and then walked off in a huff for some reason. (As Harlan is wont to do.)

The Moon goes on a joyride, courtesy of some mishandled nuclear waste, carrying our hapless cast through a series of increasingly unlikely adventures.

Actually, I had "The Starlost" in mind...but I do recall the ST:Animated "The Farthest Star" episode had a similar craft.

The Canadian production company made an entire shambles of the work. His original screenplay and bible for the series won a Hugo, but OMG, the technology wasn't up to the task, and the CBN writers were hacks.

"The Prisoner"

Ok, here's mine...

Some of the favorite lines:

  • Around here, we brush our teeth with Scotch.
  • The only way we're gonna win this war is if Tokyo is more fouled up than Washington.
  • We're a rear area!
