Question: I am trying to remember the name of a TV show that was on in the early to mid 80's. It dealt with day-to-day life on a US Army post (Not Marines or Navy, I'm not thinking of Major Dad or JAG). It was set in the present day (present day for when it was on-the mid 80's), NOT Vietnam. I think the word "Honor" was part of the title, but I am not sure. Anyone? I seem to remember the closing credits focused on the flag pole in front of the HQ while the credits rolled.Grumpy Scot
Question: I am trying to find out the name of a cartoon that used to come on back in the 80's about a guy who had the powers of animals. I think he was a sheriff in the show and his rival was a old skeleton looking dude in all black. I think it took place like in the desert although I could be wrong about that but his power as far as I can remember came from a bear, a hawk, and I think a cheetah or something?Rollin Garcia Jr
Question: I saw a movie on TV a few years ago and I didn't catch the title. There were kids living with a grandmother who didn't like them. There was an uncle living in the basement and an aunt that may have been mentally disabled. The uncle had a tunnel that led outside. I think it took place during a world war. Does any of this ring a bell?
Question: Quite a few years ago I watched a movie about a young girl who was called to be a nun. While she was a novice she met a man and fell in love with him. After he left, she left the convent in search of him. While she searched him out she met up with other men who all died before she could get too close. While this young girl was searching, the statue of the madonna disappeared and the town was going through a drought. I have no idea what the name of this movie. Does anyone know what movie I am talking about?
Question: I saw an indie movie about ten years ago which featured two young boys, one of whom I think was called Francis, and it dealt with their fears about nuclear war. A central theme was that after the bomb went off, people turned into pigs. I thought the movie was called Francis, but I can't seem to find anything that matches this description. Does anyone remember this movie?
Question: I used to watch a reality show that took place in a castle. Couples competed against each other to win the chance to retrieve gold for a chamber; however, after a certain amount of time had passed, tigers came out. The couple had to get out before the gates closed or they would be trapped with the tiger. What was the show?
Question: I am trying to remember a film I saw on Sky 1 a few years ago. It dealt with a cop or ex-cop or somebody of that sort, and an evil guy with a very bad blonde mullet. The only scenes I remember are as follows: there is a small blonde girl standing over a well with a barb wire crank running across it, and the evil guy tells the girl to hold the wire and she her hand starts to bleed as one of his minions cranks the wire; then she looks into the camera; the other is where the guy, he has dark short hair and is crucified on something. He is bloody throughout most of the movie, but for the life of me I can't remember its name.
Question: I remember seeing a film on the Sci-Fi channel ages ago. At the start of the film, there's a shot of a spaceship that looks like an earth vehicle (a car or something, and I'm not thinking of Spaceballs). It was a comedy film, with the main "funny" thing being that aliens that look like humans have either hijacked or accidentally stolen a ship of their species (I can remember a scene where a hi-ranking one of these aliens is pretty angry about them), and they crash land on earth, but turn out to be stupider than the average human. The scene clearest in my mind is where one of the "aliens" is trying to show off his advanced technology, which turns out to be a pen, by drawing a squiggly line on a piece of paper. Does anyone know what this film is called?Gary O'Reilly
