Journeying To The Outpost

Sorry - in Outpost, does the girl have a magic MOLE or magic MOLD on the side of her face? Because I could believe either. Though if it turns up on my TV schedule, I'm sure I'll watch at least one episode...
Was the show Sarah was thinking of Primeval (starring As-far-as-I-know-not-a-relative Andrew Lee Potts) for the show where people chased dinosaurs?

Hey, is Dave trying to argue that Bat Tech is implausible!?

I wanted people to be allowed to guess at the 2 point level was because some of the names - eg. Luke's - are sufficiently generic that they might be on multiple shows. And there were meant to be no repeats - sorry about that!

For some reason I chose an angry baby Batman avatar when I made my account here, so I feel compelled to weigh in. Batman the Animated Series deserves to be in the cannon if only to recognize the reach of its influence across media (what other cartoon adaptation had so much impact on its own source material?), but even I would be on the fence about any single episode being cannon worthy. Monty picked a good one, and made an excellent case. A 20-minute episode may be enough to promote a D-list villain to B-list and change the way he's portrayed in print, live action, and video games, but it's not quite enough to actually make me care about the character (as Sarah would say) qua character.

Also: up until someone said Utah, I was going to need to watch an episode of The Outpost just to satisfy my curiosity; but if it's made in here, it surely makes use of the strange, small film industry that exists only to make adaptations of passages from the Book of Mormon (the iffy religious document, not the musical) for young Latter-Day Saints, which means I already know exactly as much about it as I'll ever need to.

Seconding John here, this sounds more like Primeval (The Lost World was blatantly filmed in Australia- oh, the wonderful, terrible "British" accents- and there were definitely portals, but not much back-and-forthing with them).

I was literally watching an episode of TLW last night, so this podcast totally made my day, even if the show was being referenced as low-quality (I love it to pieces, but... yeah, fair).

Thank you for introducing me to this CW show, though, it sounds like the kind of garbage fire I will watch for years. :)

I noticed one of those. Joe's Bar could also work for Grey's Anatomy. (Joe the bartender eventually bought the bar that came up in another question and renamed it.)

Another one: the main character in Early Edition owned and lived above a bar named McGinty's. (so many 'Irish' bars on so many shows!)

Great game, but how on earth was The Regal Beagle left out??

...because I'd have to have heard of it? I'm actually annoyed I didn't cut one of the interchangeable Irish-ish sounding bars and put in "The Drunken Clam" (from Family Guy) as I'm pretty sure its name is unique.

I take it "Three's Company" is a pop culture blind spot for you? I'm only 30 and even I know that one.

A sad deficiency in my TV lexicon! I have seen the odd episode, I think, but not enough to be familiar with anything on it. I'm slightly more familiar with its British antecedent, Man About the House, though I really only know that from ITS spin off, Robin's Nest.

(Everyone's now probably wishing I would just shut up about 70s sit coms!)
