Yes!

A show that I thought would be terrible turns out to be a new favorite, much like another NBC show, Chuck.

Your turn, Kitty.

Yeah, I was trying to follow the original directions:

There's a story of dubious authenticity that says a television listing once summarized The Wizard of Oz thus: "A young girl is transported to a strange country where she kills the first person she encounters, then teams up with three strangers to kill again." Insane, misleading, but not technically inaccurate. Which is exactly what we're going for in this game! Here's how it works: Someone picks a TV series, miniseries, or TV movie, and writes a summary for it that is completely true, but still doesn't really capture the concept.

Though making Monroe the focus was perhaps a bit unfair.

No, once Grimm came up, I got it right away. That was a good one. :)
