    first off this is a SCI-Fi Board; but the answer after googling fraiser smoking epsisode turned up the following quote
    Everything. I like the way a fresh, firm pack feels in my hand. I like peeling away that little piece of cellophane and seeing it twinkle in the light. I like coasting that first, sweet cylinder out of it's hiding place and bringing it slowly to my lips. Striking a match. Watching it burst into a perfect, little flame and knowing that soon that flame will be inside me. I love the first puff, pulling it into my lungs. Little fingers of smoke filling me, caressing me, feeling that warmth penetrate deeper and deeper until I think I'm going to burst then WHOOSH! Watching it flow out of me in a lovely sinuous cloud; no two ever quite the same.
    I don't usually date smokers, but I think I could make an exception in her case.

    I would love some help finding an old show as well! Does anyone remember a teenage (I think?) show about this girl who keeps seeing crows (or maybe some other ominous bird?) everywhere? I think I remember some scene in acemetery or something where there's this huge flock of crows and it's all very ominous.That's about all I remember about it because I was just a kid! I'm guessing that it was on (or at least I watched it... I suppose it could have been a syndication) around 2003, 2004, but it could have been from the late nineties up to around 2005 really. And yes, I do realize that 2000's isn't really an "old" show, it just seems like it to me since it was my childhood!


    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    thanks for the reply but Brimstone isn't it. I remember there were two brothers and a semi-derelict house I'm not sure if both brothers were alive or not sorry to be so vague. Hey maybe I'll realise in the shower tomorrow that it was all a dream

    It was a "super natural" show. The main charater was a little girl, who had the ability to (or just always be chance) found super natural things. Her mother was in a band i think so they lived in a bus. With the band and her brother. Her father was dead(i think) butwas said to be very much like her. ibelieve theover all theme of the shows was her finding out what happened to him and or getting him back? this was non animation.thats i can remember besides bits and pieces of episodes. Does anyone remember what i'm talking about?

    the show I think you are talking about might be 'so weird',I can remember watching it with my kids it aired on the uk on the Disney channel but wasn't a very Disneyish show. I think the girls name was Molly but not sure. Hope this helps you look it up to see if it's the show you remember

    If it's a tv show then 'Salvage 1' or possibly the film 'Voyagers'.

    I'm trying to find the name of an old episode of the Twilight Zone or possibly Alfred Hitchcock (honestly not sure). There was a man who either had an accident or was very sick, but when he woke up, everyone was speaking differently. They were using normal English words, but the words meant different things. For example, "book" might have meant "car", or "dinosaur" might have meant "eat". The man couldn't understand his wife and children. He was very confused. Thanks in advance for any help. =]

    This could really be back a while - maybe the late 50's or 60's, I was real young back then. It was a science program, maybe a "special," where these people had a gigantic balloon, shaped somewhat like a mattress, see-thru (plastic?) on one side and all black on the other. They floated itup in the sky and were actually able to capture water from the atmosphere using it - somehow. Did anyone here ever see anything like this? If you did, do you also remember the old "Bell Labs" science 'specials"? I remember one called Hemo the Magnificent, and another one about "time". In that last one they were showing how time slows down when you travel fast.


    I've been writing around trying to find that first program I mentioned, for quite some time, now. thanks for any help.

    Hi all, I'm trying to find a specific episode from a show I saw on TV many years ago, and I don't remember the name of the show. It had to do with how our future was literally "built" by these people called the "time people". It showed how they were ahead of you several frames and sometimes they forgot to put something in one frame and would remember a few frames later and then put it back where it belonged - explaining why we all miss something and just KNOW we put it somewhere and then it's vanished, and then if we go back a few minutes later it's right where we thought it was. I love the explanation and have used it raising my kids - they've heard me say "It's the time people!" often over the years, and I would love for them to be able to see the episode.


    I don't think it was the Twilight Zone or the Outer Limits, but I could be wrong. But I'm sure it was a show that one episode had nothing to do with the previous or future episodes.


    Thanks for your help!
