New today Question: Why was Madeline killed? She wasn't responsible for what happened to Lestat.

New today Question: What flowers made up Emily's bouquet?

New this week Question: Why does Mera say Aquaman is king by birthright as he is the eldest? That's not how it works. He's not the King's first son, but the Queen's, and that is irrelevant.

New this week Question: Did Aquaman kill all Black Manta's crew at the start? As far as I can see he just knocks them out, but they don't seem to leave. If they die, why is he so upset about the guy's dad, when he left a half dozen to drown?

New this month Question: Do Piz and Wallace ever get busted for the Fake IDs? Or does Veronica get busted for giving them the fake IDs?


New this month Question: Cinema Sins pointed out in the progress bar of the computer display that the word Percent is spelled with a hyphen. Like Per-Cent. I am aware that the word can be correctly spelled as percent and per cent. But doing some research the only mention I can find of it spelled with a hyphen as per-cent is just mentioned as an old way of spelling it. How old is that? And is it still within the time frame of this late 80's period movie to be spelling it as Per-cent on a computer display? https://youtu.be/HNri0mNI2PY?t=1159.

New this month Question: Not sure if there's an answer, just speculation, or a plot hole. As I understand it, the premise of time travel in the show is the Legends can't go back to a time they've already been to because then time would fold in on itself, etc. For example, the 3 get stranded in 1958, picked up in 1960, but the rest of the Legends can't try again by just going back to 1958. But then it's revealed that Chronos was Rory all along, so how is Chronos/Rory able to time travel back to a time Rory has already been to without doing any real damage to time? And if the idea is, well no-one knew Chronos was Rory, so they didn't know they were interacting with a time traveling version of themselves (or what ever the reason), then all the Legends have to do is disguise themselves to interact in the same time.

New this month Question: After Sidney and Billy have sex, is her questioning him implying that she still thinks he's done it? Because I thought he's already convinced her that he is not the killer. Why would she have sex with someone she believes to be the killer?

Janitor Dad - S4-E6

Question: When Chet and Verna are arguing about Chet getting a job, visible in the background is a painting of what I believe is an oak tree on a yellow background. Does anybody know the name and/or artist of this painting? My Grandparents used have a painting similar to it (if not the same one) and it also looks very similar to (and possibly the inspiration for) the cover art for the debut album of the band Days of the New.
