comment Why couldn't Bond have backup at the battle of Skyfall?
I believe it was alluded to earlier in the film that only someone with an inside knowledge of MI6 could accomplish what Silva did. This was, of course, before they found out it was Silva who was behind the attacks.

+1. Initial reaction: because, as James said, Silva was one step ahead of them the whole way. But that doesn't really explain it. Maybe so that they could be prepared and force him to improvise? That also sounds flimsy. Looking forward to an answer here!

comment Why does Buster not join in the family chicken dance?
@Arabella He doesn't, but does make chicken-like noises when assisting Gob in his 'Free Bird/Free Chicken' illusion (not trick) in the episode "For British Eyes Only."

This is a solid answer to a question that may not actually have a real answer. You have interesting insights and offer logically-presented conclusions. Something tells me there can be more here, but this certainly meets my qualifications for an answer. +1 + check.

comment Is X Files shot on location at UMD's campus?
Can you provide any episodes that mention the University of Maryland as a location? I am a UMD alum and am confident that I could figure out if they're actually there or not. We did definitely have St. Elmo's Fire, National Treasure 2, and some (probably) hilariously bad movie starring Corey Haim called Life 101 filmed on-campus!

@ChristianRau I have reservations about the existing answers, but yours makes sense to me. If you can parse it out a bit, I'd consider that an acceptable answer!
