Name the Acronyms


I've noticed that acronyms are being used more and more.
To spare the re-typing of Titles that have been referenced before.
Some I know right away, while some I have no clue.
Some I have to look them up, what about you?
I have listed some acronyms to test your skills in deduction.
Are you willing see how fast you can guess these titles in production?


1* RSAM

2* TTM

3* FPB

4* TSRTS

5* PT

6* IATL

And I just can't get #2! Are you sure it's not "TMTM"?

Oh how I wish this too! :sad:
There are things I would love to hear him give his unique take on around here! :-)
I admit I usually hate acronyms too, their use always seems impolite somehow, but I am guilty using them in reference to episodes, maybe this is something I need to address! :-*

I am a librarian also, and it does bug me to no end when acronyms are used in lieu of titles. Although I do use a few once in a while, but not for titles. Confession, I think it's because I'm really bad at guessing what they are!

Okay, here are the acronym rules as I understand them. At least, this is what is required of me at my job. The first time, write it out fully and put the acronym in parenthesis: The Song Remains the Same (TSRTS). After that it is okay to use the acronym. So often I just cannot figure what episode is being referenced and it frustrates me to no end. So, this is my 2 cents worth for the acronym topic. Only 31 days to go. Yippee!

Ah, Karen, if I played now, I'd be cheating... I'm a little late to the game, and I have seen the comments above... sniff.

Personally, I'm not fond of acronyms. It's a disease :lol: of our time - abbreviate long terms, not surprising in the age of twitter and facebook... Since I rarely use acronyms (I believe there has to be enough time to speak the whole term ;-) ), I would have had trouble naming the episodes...

It's a fun game, though. Next time I will test my show-knowledge earlier!
Love, Jas
