A prequel to a kidnapping, this show explains an agency background that was probably more impressive unexplained.

By eschewing cable and satellite TV services for 10 years, I appear to have left myself at somewhat of a disadvantage.

Sorry... with no one answering, I forgot to update with another clue.

The TV series was based on a movie. The first was good, the second and third were more exploiting the goodwill created by the first.

Seriously? Talk about luck.

It’ll be this afternoon before I can post a follow-up clue.

Long-running depiction of the daily highs and lows of working in a frumpy British department store.

Wait, no, wrong one ...

The correct one is: Are you being served ?

I would have also guessed Mr. Selfridge, but as that guess is taken, I guess I'll throw in The Paradise, although it wasn't very long-running.

The last time that I thought I had chosen something that would be easy to guess, it ended up being hard, so to make things easier I'll just have you try to guess one of three different shows, one of which I know someone in this thread should be able to get, one of which is very well-liked by fans of a certain game on BoardGameGeek, and the third is rather obscure, but someone should be able to get one of the other two, so it won't be a problem. As soon as one of you guesses any one of the following series, I'll reveal all three and that person can take their turn.

The first series is about a boy who interacts with an antique that belongs to his grandfather which causes him to end up being inhabited by a spirit from the ancient past, who is very skilled at playing a certain game. The boy spends the entire show playing the game with his friends and rivals. At first he has the spirit help him, but eventually he proves that he is very skilled in his own right. Throughout the series, there is a struggle between darkness and light.

The second series is about a group of high-school students who play a card game with connections to the ancient past. They enter multiple tournaments for it, throughout the series.

The third series contains fantasy elements, and has a protagonist with unusual hair. In the series, there are seven magical objects, that when brought together will give whoever has them great power.

All three are anime, but despite the fact that all three of the synopses I gave describe Yu-Gi-Oh!, none of them are part of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise.

The first one sounds like Hikaru no Go.

Yes. The struggle between darkness and light I referred to is the struggle between black and white in every game of Go:


The 2nd show was Chihayafuru, which is about Karuta, where players have to react to grab cards when the corresponding ancient poem is read. It sounds boring, but actually has a great story.


The 3rd was the very well-known Dragon Ball, thrown in to make sure that we didn't spend days on one of my anime clues. I'd have also accepted Dragon Ball Z, or one of the later sequel series as an answer, as the Dragon Balls are in each of them.

I never saw the anime, but the manga came out when I worked in a bookstore, and was also interested in go, so I read it.

Now to think of a clue.

This short-lived TV show ran for one season and was basically a ripoff of Knight Rider -- except instead of a fancy high-tech car, the hero rode a fancy high-tech motorcycle.
