Do you want to play a game? I do! Have you ever spent some time reading your television’s guide channel blurbs? You know, you’re scrolling through the 952 channels to see what’s on and you see a familiar film name, highlight it and then stare at the blurb agog?
For example, the film I am thinking of right now read:
Asteroid heads for Earth as a man’s daughter finds love with his employee.
Now, if you saw that blurb anywhere, would you really be that interested?
Women play baseball while men fight war. Tom Hanks stars. Penny Marshall directed.
These blurbs make me crazy. I don’t know if they are limited by space, creativity or just generally caring. But in that note, I have a little game for you to play. Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to name all ten of the following books/movies/shows based on these one-line blurbs. Let’s keep people honest too – you have to email them to me. I’ll draw a name from those who submit for a gift certificate to somewhere fun.
Bonus: This experience veteran cop uses everything at her disposal to bring justice for the dead.
Can you name all of these? I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to play along with your own one-line blurbs in the comments. I’d love to guess what you come up with too!
