Is there a reason a weekly TV series wouldn't name their episodes? I can understand a soap opera that's on 5+ days a week for decades not wanting to name thousands of episodes, but some shows just list the episode number or use a #1.1 pattern. For example, I'm rewatching "Dark Matter" and each episode in season 1 is just the episode number while season 2 and 3 the episodes have names.
General questions about movies, TV and more

I saw a movie or TV show back in the early 90's when I was a kid. I only remember one scene because it scared the crap out of me. I believe in the scene, an older man (probably 60's?) was fed feet-first into a shredding machine or large wood-chipper and killed. It was outside. The camera was inside it looking up. And I think there was a woman behind him who either pushed him in, or was trying to get him out. He was awake, shouting and struggling. Ring anyone's bell? (And it was not "Fargo.").
If episodes of a TV show are still re-running, do the actors continue to receive some amount of payment?
Not sure if this is the forum, but since there's video game mistakes listed; are there any sports video games that let you attempt to cheat or get aggressive against another player? Not talking about cheat codes, but say a baseball game that lets you use a corked bat or pine tar where you hope to not get caught. Or a football game that lets you try to trip a runner. The old Nintendo "Ice Hockey" game would let you start a fight sometimes that other players got involved, so that sort of thing.
I once saw part of what I think was a TV show (Little House on the Prairie, maybe?), and it featured a scene where a girl in school has drawn a picture of her teacher. The teacher sees the picture and, offended by it, asks who drew it. The boy sitting next to the girl stood up and claimed he did it, and as punishment, the teacher whipped him with a stick. Anyone know what this was from?
This was a moment in a TV show. I saw it in the '90s. A man is in a bedroom. A woman is lying on the bed. I think she is wearing a sweater and jeans. He has killed her or somehow made her unconscious. Two men (or a man and woman?) enter the room. One picks her up. The man who was already in the room says "I love her." The other man says "You don't kill people you love." They leave with her. The "bad guy" doesn't try to stop them. Sorry for not having many details. Thanks for any guesses.
I saw part of a film around 2001, I think Jeff Bridges was in it. A man and his wife are driving through thick snow and a horse and cart approach them in the opposite direction. The car skids and startles the horse, and the horse rears up and kicks through the car window, hitting the wife in the face and killing her. Never been able to forget that scene but I don't remember anything else about the rest.
I am looking for something that I saw on TV when I was about four years old. I don't remember much except that there was a person or maybe a creature and its whole body looked like it was either made out of sand or it seemed to shimmer. I remember a scene where it was standing up on a mound of sand maybe in a desert. Some men come along that start hitting it in the head with their swords. The next scene shows the creature in maybe a medical room with something on its head. Please help me.
I've seen this countless times, most recently in the new "Hawkeye" series; someone wants to sneak into a building/crime scene that's on fire, or recently on fire, and firetrucks are on the scene. So the person will grab a fireman's jacket and helmet out of the truck as a disguise. Do firetrucks carry extra jackets and helmets? Or would someone take their gear off and put it in the truck for some reason? In the same vein do ambulances and hospitals have white lab coats lying around as well?
I've seen a few movies and shows in which a character wants to use a false identity. They find a record of a person who died in the same year that the character was born, and use that person's name. Why do they need to do this?
There's a movie or maybe TV show where at the end two little kids get adopted - a boy who's black and a blonde haired white girl. Someone crouches down to them, maybe in an airport, and asks if they want to come with them. Any clues what this is from?
I need to know what movie 2 guys hold their hand over a candle to see who can last longer. I'm sure the record is like 2 minutes 25 seconds or something...the vet gives up and the other guy keeps going, and they say OK you've proved your point.
I remember watching a short film on TV when I was a little girl I was about 7 or 8 years old at the time. I remember these kids are going to be putting on a play and this dark skinned girl imagines herself on stage and being beautiful, but she is disappointed when she learns that they are doing Snow White. She wants to try out for Snow White but the other kids tease her because she is black. I remember the girls name was something like Carol. Can anyone help me?
I saw a scene from either a series or a movie on Facebook and I want to know what it was called. I remember these little girls playing a game with some virtual reality helmets. They play a game that is spooky but when the parents come in they switch to a kids game with animals in it. I remember the parents try to lock the game but the girls can still play it. I think the game eventually comes to life or something I only saw it once in the Facebook videos so can anyone help me?
I saw a movie that partially involved a doctor having performed an abortion on a teenager/young woman. She had been raped by her father/stepfather. Her mother was dead or had left home. I think her hair was blonde. The story seemed to take place in the '60s or earlier. The movie could have been made in the '80s or earlier.
Looking for a game I think might have been for PS1 or PS2. A guy is sitting in his office when he hears two gunshots. When he runs outside, he sees his wife and daughter have been murdered. A woman sees him standing over their bodies and starts screaming. The guy hijacks a car and drives after the car he saw leaving the area. Don't know anything that was said because the language had been switched from English to some other language.
Saw a movie from sometime in the 90's. A woman and an Asian man are travelling down a road apparently lost. The Asian doesn't speak English at all so the woman can't understand him. He makes sexist remarks towards her and even places a fifty dollar bill in between her bikini which she assumes is his way of offering some help but, in truth he's actually giving it to her in exchange for sexual favors.
I am looking for an older movie with the plot of a high profile guy gets betrayed into thinking his loyal wife is having an affair with his best friend, and he kills them only to find out later that it wasn't true.
Can anyone tell me the name of a TV series from the UK, it was screened in the late 90s and used as educational material. It followed a family living in Victorian England and if I remember correctly it featured the death of the youngest sibling called Anne.
Is there an archive of any information about location photography from specific movies? 1937's Captains Courageous contains scenes of large fishing schooners speeding downwind, heeled over so far that the edges of their decks are under water. Impossible to simulate. James Stewart's The Spirit of St. Louis has nearly five minutes of period aerial photography of the actual city of St. John's, Newfoundland, Lindbergh's last contact with North America as he headed east. It's a rare visual record.
