    ^ I didn't get this one until I read your post.

    An alternative would be: Joseph Fourier

    Same here. I give up.

    Would it help if I watched lots of American TV shows? Or British TV shows?

    maybe not quite so easy as i found them then



    okay, just to clear this one off the books ......


    each clue represents a group of characters or people denoted by the titles of their respective tv shows


    for clue 1, if you're struggling, perhaps some friends could help out?



    for clue 2, you may have had to be a teenager once, although not a ninja



    for clue 3, it may take some brains but, once you get it, you'll feel f.a.b.

    couple to think about .......

    complete these 2 separate sequences:

    a) 2 = "seven", 3 = "eleven", 4 = "seventeen", 5 = ???

    b) 2 = "seven", 3 = "eleven", 4 = "twenty seven", 5 = ???
