comment What is the name of this TV show?
The American version is good, (especially the later ones with Laura Hall hosting) but if you can find the UK series, (with Clive Anderson hosting) they are much better (just my opinion!)

comment What is this sketch by Rowan Atkinson?
Except the twist is that Blackadder is a kind generous person, who is taken advantage of by everyone, and ends up giving away all his Christmas dinner, presents & money. Once the ghost shows him his ancestors, he decides to become a real bastard instead, unfortunately this coincides with Queen Victoria & Prince Albert visiting incognito.

comment British tv comedy skit show where an actor plays a blackface vagabond
Surreal and creepy British comedy makes me think of The League of Gentlemen imdb.com/title/tt0184135/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2 , but I can't remember them doing blackface.

"I'm not hungry, let's have dinner". Is she really asking him to meet her for dinner?

comment What is the symbolism of eating Chinese take-out in a scene?
Whenever I saw it in movies/on tv, it seemed like a shorthand for being relaxed, casual (eg eating straight out of boxes), and having fun with a group of friends. It seems to be quite an American thing, at least from my Kiwi viewpoint. (I think only in the last 5-10 years I have seen Chinese food being sold in fold-up boxes, otherwise it comes in plastic trays, in my local area anyway.) It seems people have Chinese food delivered to eat at home, while burgers are eaten while sitting down in a shop. Hot dogs = community occasions, kebabs = only while drunk.

@Ankit Sharma Eric Brown had already answered it, I was just being pedantic!

She doesn't die in a home robbery but by falling into a flooded stream while crossing it on a swing rope.

comment Why does Mycroft meet John in so many different locations?
At least one location was used for a laugh: Battersea Power Station. [...] Ostensibly, they are here because the dilapidated early 20th-century grandeur of the power station – with its glowing walnut parquet floors, 20ft windows and rows of clockwork chrome dials – makes one of the most exquisite TV location-shoot interiors in Britain. In reality, however, it’s hard to shake the suspicion everyone’s here because Moffat and Gatiss could not resist the lure of a single one-liner: summoned to Battersea by Mycroft, Watson notes, drily, “He’s got a power complex.” (Caitlin Moran)

comment Do the Doctors in the Doctor Who series identified themselves well?
Do you mean, did the various incarnations of the Doctor make it clear to humans that they weren't human? I believe they certainly never tried to hide it.

comment Imaginary friend from childhood returns when a young woman is in trouble
Oh, I remember this movie! Loved the bit where he wakes the little girl up so they can be burglars together. "I made your jersey stripey!"

Probably not what you're looking for, but this question reminded me of Woolly Valley nzonscreen.com/title/woolly-valley-1981

Peter Jackson does something similar - just for fun.

comment Why does the werewolf exhale a green mist?
Thank you for this. After watching other episodes, I agree with you, it doesn't matter. Possibly his breath catching a green light. And yes, there is a pilot episode: imdb.com/title/tt1349938/episodes?season=1

comment How did Sherlock survive the fall?
I have been told that the hospital that Holmes jumps off is not one with an A&E dept, but only has labs and similar, therefore the medics who rush Holmes off on a stretcher are likely to be in on his plan (Baker St Irregulars in costume, etc). Can anyone confirm/deny this? Can't remember where I heard or read it, sorry - have been looking! (Hope I didn't dream it!)
