No guesses? Ok... trying to think of one that won't immediately give it away. The books predated the series. The comics didn't come in until after the series.

Pick a hint. Only one as all of them give it away easily (of course there's no way to enforce that...)

1.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Some people don't agree that it was cancelled before it's time.


2.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
One of the characters on the TV series was on a superhero show for a long time.


3.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The supernatural includes Angels, Demons, Natural Royalty, Vamires, Werewolves, and other sundries


4.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The main character doesn't like hats. - Filler to make the hints nearly the same length.

I'm interested to find out what the answer is, but think that it's something that I haven't seen. I looked at the first hint (and only the first hint) and it didn't seem helpful to someone who doesn't think that they know about it.

Without looking at the clues, my guess would be The Dresden Files.

I have heard of The Dresden Files, but didn't know that there was a T.V. show. The name did cross my mind, as I was thinking of role-playing games with other media, but I thought that The Dresden Files seemed abundant enough that if they had a T.V. show, someone else would have mentioned them already. I don't feel deserving enough to try guessing a T.V. show that I don't know exists.

Ah yeah! I do remember thinking a couple minutes in, 'this is not great' but then towards the end of the series I was really sad to see it go.

Foolishly, I looked at the clues afterwards and think I got (yet another) spoiler for Arrow (do not watch The Flash before Arrow).

I actually bought The Dresden Files on DVD. My impression was that they had decided to try and make the series more interesting to everyone and successfully made it less interesting for those unfamiliar with the books and simultaneously annoyed the fans of the books.

So, a series. Perhaps an easy one.

It's not made of potatoes.

Slight spoiler perhaps, but I will agree with the don't watch Flash before the Arrow. And add watch them in order during the Crossover. I didn't one time accidentally and was lost.

I'd also agree with your assessment of the Dresden Files. I actually watched it before reading the books, and it prompted me to read the books. When I looked back at the series, I had a greater appreciation for the ire that it inspired. But I still really loved the series.

As far as the clue... not easy to me!

So far I'm 2 seasons and a couple of episodes into The Flash, one season and a couple of episodes into Supergirl, halfway through the first season of Legends and one season into Arrow. And without paying for Arrow, it's probably going to be a while before I see season two (and I have more than enough free stuff to watch). Arrow was being shown one episode a week on one channel; the other three five episodes a week one after the other on another channel, for about the first three seasons I think (haven't checked exactly what's recorded). I'm watching Legends currently so at least I will be at the same spot for those three. Arrow, well you get spoilers from news reports on The Flash.

I'd read the Dresden Files books well before I got the series. Which I think still hasn't shown up on any channel I get. So it was pretty different.

The clue, well think about potatoes and television programmes!

That's the one!

Was this harder than I thought? Or is mash as used for potatoes an English term more than it is an American one?

We say "mashed potatoes" (at least in New England. As you're likely already aware, Americans also call what the British call "crisps" "chips" and "chips" "french fries.") In my case, the problem was that I just haven't seen the show.

We do call them mashed potatoes but more often than not it's abbreviated to mash. As in bangers and mash.

I've spent many hours watching British comedies and dramas. I'm on board for bangers and mash or BBC (bangers, beans, and chips) any time. And a pint or two of "real ale".

A group of high-school kids spend a lot of time hanging around the local diner. The episodes typically centre around the misadventures of one boy and his closest friends.

Precisely. Take it away, Chuck.

(BTW, did anyone else notice that Chuck Cunningham disappeared from the show without any explanation?)

I realized that with a couple of changes, my prior hint would work for a different show...

TV show about a renegade with supernatural elements that was canceled before its time, but is still going in other media (novels, comics), and the main character is still on TV on a couple of shows.

Constantine? (My first guess the first time around for this clue, by the way).

You can win fabulous cash and prizes... unless you land on an animated gremlin, in which case you shouldn't have tried to--


(I'll give you geek gold if you name the "gremlins," too).
