Shouldn't this thread be in the "Hit List" forum?

Boy, these short word WPs are really HARD - especially if you don't watch any TV and very few movies, like me! I didn't know ANY of the names! I'm sure it was a good quiz, tho!

The short puzzles are harder but I like them because they're challenging. I didn't do very well on this one and I watch a lot of TV but it was fun.

I guess I watch(ed) too much TV. Allowed me to guess early.

Cool puzzle. Good subject.

Zeedee- No this should not be in the Hit List section because it is a WP, not a quiz, and the window for taking it is only 8 am > 7:59.59 pm on 5/7.

Thanks, Maurlin. I did realize my error a few minutes too late. I just assumed it was a quiz because I hadn't looked at the WP yet.

But now I have. And I really liked this one! Great clues, Liam.

That was a good one, nice job.

I had a wide disparity on the clue difficulty....I guessed two with no moves and blew 20 on the rest...

They were tough clues. Enough to in theory point you in the right direction, but not till you figured out the name.

Also, did anyone else notice: The first puzzle's cop drove a red car, then the next one a car of another color, then another red, then another color, then the fifth one had a red car too. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but I thought it must have some meaning ...

This was the first "short answer" format by the Platinums, wasn't it?

you know they're good when you swear you know the answer ... then kick yourself after blowing the three moves for guessing wrong. Then you realize the correct answer was even better.

Nicely done!

Obviously not my area of knowledge, but could usually figure out a name after a dozen or so guesses!

But, now I know 'em! At least for the the next five minutes...

Thanks for the lesson, Bill. Well done!

Ken, surely you realize the puzzles come to us in random order. My first puzzle might have been your last one--or even one that you did not get at all. Right?

No Rev Funny Phonics by OOGIE was a short one too.

Sorry....don't like the short ones!

Tanked again.

Good job tho Paperman.

After FINALLY completing mine (Hats? Divas? Elvis? Other?) I realized it's not as easy as one may think.

Good quiz. At least I got 5 that I had heard of before so that helped a great deal!

Thanks for all the kind words about my puzzle. I think most of you would agree that my clues couldn't have had too much more information or it would've been a give away. I think there should be four or six word puzzles per day. Maybe Sploofus royalty should look into this possibility. I like word rounds and word matches but I'm never going to get under 30 seconds on any of these sections. The only way I come in the top ten is when all the speed demons are asleep.

good luck with that, the "speed demons" never sleep, sadly they have no other life other than this

Good Puzzle, Liam! I got the first one in 2 guesses, but lost several letters on some of the others. Thanks!

Great Job Liam - solved the first 4 in no time flat and then must have taken 20 minutes pondering the last before finally having the light go on. I think the clues were excellent - made you really think without being a dead giveaway.

Most enjoyable, Liam! Good clues that helped a lot, and folks I'd actually heard of. Good job!

Good puzzle! A couple I had were probably on before I was in a place where I could get more than one channel so didn't know a couple of them so went through a lot of letters trying to get something familiar. At any rate, a most enjoyable quiz with clues that gave just enough information.

I agree about several WP a day. I would certainly like to do more than a couple a day.

Loved it, Bill! I really like the ones that make me think. Well done with the clues!

And turns out there are flukes in word puzzles. Who knew?

Bill:

Congratulations on developing this puzzle.
I earned my score this time.

Made me think [hard]- two of the five were especially troublesome.

Well done Liam, that was a good fun quiz.
Surprised (and happy) it wasn't about the
difference between snooker and billiards!!!!

Aren't there enough fictional cops that you didn't need to have more than one from the same series? The same series I didn't watch? Blerg.

I'm feeling poorly & keep getting weird things in my head Thought this puzzle was about show names not characters. Once I sorted that out it went fairly smoothly. Excellent clues, Liam Good job

Lamizell,, about the same series thing. One was male and the other was female. Both of them had similar problems and were important to the show's success.

I enjoyed the puzzle. I didn't recognize some of the names but I just emptied the alphabet until I figured them out.

I'm enjoying the diversity of all of these player WP's.
