    There is this series I can't seem to remember the name of, its set on some alternate universe, or in the future, society is separated between "normal" humans and some humans who work for the govt who are secluded in some hood and they are alien type or more evolved and they have blue marks on their faces / skin like patterns, there first episode happens when some govt program tries to include some teens that belong to that race to a college of "normal" human teens, so one of the guys falls in love with a "normal" human girl and eventually shows her in his hood that's secluded from the city. I can't remember much more but it was dope and I just can't remember the name. I think the series ended up cancelled... Reply

    I'm looking for the name of a TV show. I do not remember any actors or character names. It's similar to Eerie Indiana, the RL Stine shows, and is geared towards young adults. It takes place in a town where weird things happen. A kid moves their with one of his parents. (One of the parents is missing or presumed dead and they are moving back to their hometown.) The main character of the show befriends two characters that are odd. They know weird things happen in the town. The girl is nerdy. There's also a wealthy family that the town seems to think is evil and avoids. I know they spend time at a little diner. It was on a streaming service and I can't find it again. It was a serial show. I don't know how many seasons. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I think it was made past 2000, but I'm not positive. Reply

      It's a long shot, but it might be Hemlock Grove (a Netflix original)

      Definitely not Hemlock Grove. It was meant for a younger audience and was slightly campy. It was more like a Disney or Nick show, but I know it wasn't either of those.

      Could it be strange days at Blake holesey high? I think it had a slightly different name in the us, maybe black hole high?

      It's definitely similar. The kids were trying to solve a mystery in it, but I don't remember them being in school. It may have taken place during the school break.

    does anyone think they're a 90's kids tv expert? I'm failing at google right now. I'l trying to find this show where the host was like, a bald guy in a t-shirt in a warehouse. People would write him silly questions and he would sort of mythbusters things for them.

    One episode he painted himself gold because a kid asked if being painted gold would kill you ala goldfinger.

    He looked alot like Steve Martini from Major Payne.

    It's driving me crazy! Reply

      He's not bald but could it be Beakman's World?

    Well there was this"non animated cartoon" that I used to watch 5-6 years ago basically there ware these people with powers of elements like fire 🔥 rain ☔️ thunder an some more and those powers were concealed in a locket for ex the fire mans power was in a locket shaped in fire an etc ........and the bad guys wanted those therefore they challenged them and whatever they do they go into anathor dimension and fight there the good guys had their element shape on their chest more like their locket and whenever they are about to lose they get dragged over the bad guy but they win again .......so I basically don't remember any more but one thing is for sure I loved that cartoon ......so please let me know if anyone knows its name.......pls .......and remember it is an non animated cartoon ......thank you very much Reply

      You do not have to make duplicate queries, instead you can "bump" your existing query up the list by replying to it

      Just don't do it too often - leave a reasonable time period between replies

      (Shamelessly copying Medinoc's question from previous query)

      Can you elaborate on what you mean by "non-animated cartoon"? Do you mean it was more like a slideshow of drawings, or it was Stop Motion Animation, or simply a live-action series/film that had a cartoonesque ambiance?

      Was it a series or a one-shot?

      ok .i will bump from next time it is a series not a one shot it had episodes and its like just normal movies where people talk and move more or less like power rangers

      I wonder if this query is looking for the same show

      well......it might be or might not , well only somecharecteristics of that cartoon are same........but i dont really remember too much about it

      BUMP

      Pretty sure it's xiaolin showdown

      I said it's non animated

    I think it might be Brain Games but I don't think so. The biggest clip that I remember is having random people on the show who have trouble in the dating scene go through a scenario. The whole bit is about priming, where the host keeps dropping "three" in conversation or the concept of three. For example, the car ride was three hours long, the walk is only three hundred feet or whatever.

    And at the end of it the contestant chooses a pit to fall into. I think he's told that only one pit doesn't have spikes. Naturally, he chooses the third pit, which is safe. We're assured after the fact that if he didn't choose the third pit, it would've been called off.

    I think in the same show they were talking about how the power of suggestion works and the guy was presenting flowers to random people, and they all reacted to the tune of "OMG, how did you know?" even though apparently he was priming them to want whatever type of flower he had.

    I'm not sure when it was on air but it was probably around 2011-2012 Reply

    There was a show with an episode or episodes where one character goes on a boat. The boat situation is not what it seems, and they fall out of favor with the boat people. A friend comes to rescue them with a rowboat/lifeboat, and a first, boat person turns them down. Then things escalate further and they go with the rescuer.

    I think this is a comedy show. American. Reply

    Probably 90s show.. Maybe it was something kids oriented, live action, comedy... all I can remember is that there was two men, maybe brothers? The main thing is that part of their episodes shtick was that they had this silly, high energy way of putting on their hats (like an eighties, multi coloured "ball" cap) where they would say the three steps out loud as they 1. snap their caps open, 2.slap them on their head in sync, 3. turn them sideways and shout "LOCKED".. thats when they were "ready" to do whatever they were doing next.

    There was a white lesbian show with 2 best friends: one was a red head, the other had black hair: the black hairred girl was butch and knew how to get girls/ was flirty and confident while, the red head was more femme and was too awkward/shy to flirt with girls n was a 3rd wheel to her best friend's date. After a while (i think only a couple episodes after the first), they start dating each other and sleep together. I'm not sure abt the original channel but i saw rerun on Logo, if that helps. Reply

    Part of it has a group of protestors repeating "Take over Wall Street! Take over Wall Street! Take over Wall Street!", and I remember my parents watching that show. Reply

      Could of been a news report about Occupy Wall Street?

      I'm pretty positive it was an episode of Castle where someone set a bomb off at a fictional Occupy rally called Take Over Wall Street.

    This might now count as a show, but I remember from the back of my head; a segment in like 90s - 2000s YTV where it shows a guy putting seemingly random stuff like blankets on the ground to form art. It think it was very creative that I remember, but I can't remember what it's called. Reply

      That sounds like the Big Art Attacks on Art Attack.

      Art attack

      I don’t know if this was Smarteenies. That used to be on in the UK, but I'm not sure if they played it abroad. The presenter Mark would make "big pictures" in a similar way to how you described.

    I'm not entirely sure it was in fact a TV show, but I feel like I heard the song "Things That Stop You Dreaming" by Passenger featured in something relatively recently. Does that ring a bell for anybody? Reply

      16 hours seems like a fair timeframe for a bump. :s

      Can you be a bit more specific? Was it TV, a film? A commercial spot? EDIT: Some brief youtube fu reveals this "trailer" for the film Urban and the Shed Crew, could it have been that?

    hi, so there's this tv show i used to watch as a kid, it's probably from the late 90s early 20s and it was about 2/3 kids, i think they were all siblings and they somehow entered a new dimension whenever they wanted to through a device or something i don't remember, and that other dimension was a jungle or something like that and they had a tree house there. this is vague but i can't remember anything else, i know the girl was blonde Reply

      Parallax?

      no :(

      Jumanji?

      no

      Sounds like Bridge to Terabitia, but that's a movie.

      Not "The Magic Treehouse" is it? The girl in that is blonde and I think she and the boy were siblings,

      no, but thanks

      Know I'm late to the party, but I saw this whilst trying to find something similar, it's not live action but fits everything else. I reckon it's the tv series version of Enid Blyton's the magic of the faraway tree.

      It's take forever to find it so I hoped that it helped you as much as it did me :)

    I've looked on and off for years for the name of this show but I just can't find any information, hope someone can help!

    It was a children's series on at some point in the 90s, I think on cbbc. There was a different story each week progressively getting scarier as the episodes went on, I remember the presenter warning how scary they were going to be!

    The one I can remember was about a kid finding a fairy. I think they had to feed it blood or something and was trying to find more of them. At the end they've got some kept in a cage, a rabbit hutch I think, and they all swarm out to eat this kid.

    It was pretty horrid as a child! Does anyone remember what this might be? Reply

    When I was a kid, I saw about ten minutes of a programme that I think was on ITV, and I think it was probably Sunday lunchtime. There were at least two puppet cats; a ginger tom, possibly with a cockney accent, and a white female Persian, who was definitely coded as "posh". And that's all I'm even slightly certain of; I've got an idea that they didn't get on and were possibly related, but I don't know if that's something I made up later. I never saw it again, so I'm not even sure if it was actually a series or some kind of TV movie. Reply

      That sounds like it might be the BBC Schools' programme Cats' Eyes.

      I'm almost certain it wasn't; I do remember watching that, and I'd probably have recognised it. Good suggestion, though.

    There's a scene I remember from one of the CSI Series I believe it may be, I don't remember if that is even it exactly but, This is what I can possibly remember:

    The plot was about this guy who was trying to kill his older brother due to issues within the family, Older brother got separated an lost in New York as well as his younger brother had many issues back at his house, Then when his parents found his older brother, he didn't get any attention or anything, So he was sitting on a roof top trying to kill his older brother, but I think some CSI Dude was there to stop him, An was sitting on a balcony with a sniper looking down at both of them, They were much older too.

    I can't remember the name of this tv show that had like one season or so (maybe not even a full season) about this woman who found out that her family are actually like hired assassins or part of the mob? And her dad expects her to go into the family business? I'm pretty sure it was before 2012, maybe even before 2010 and it premiered on USA? I can't find it anywhere and searches of "woman finds out her family are assassins" only brings up Red Widow but the actress is too old and the plot isn't right. Reply

    There was a show our daycare would play on VHS that I haven't been able to name for the many years I've tried. I believe the title was Al's Magic Attic or the like. "Attic" was what I remember from the title.

    It was from late 1980s or early 1990s

    It was an educational (likely American or Canadian) series, I believe straight-to-video that featured a host that's a dark-haired man and other live actors. The one I remember most was a story with renaissance and knights. They had actors dressed in full metal suits and would describe what it was like during that time period.

    He had items in trunks that he would pull out or look at and had cutaways to what he was describing.

    I don't believe any animation was involved and I don't remember any animals or puppets. If there was singing, it wasn't often at all.

    It was geared for children and had fairly decent production value. Reply

The show took place in a castle with defenders in strange costumes who never changed and attacker who were different every episode. One of defenders was dressed like a lizard and one other as a valkyrie, but there were around three more. Attackers had to climb walls while defenders split a lot of paint on them.
