Gakked from... everybody.

Pick 20 movies/anime/video games/literary works 10 tv shows, put up their summaries from Better Than It Sounds, and have your friends guess (without cheating).

1) Bones. A gorgeous but socially clueless genius anthropologist solves murders involving really icky decomposition with a street-smart and equally gorgeous wisecracking FBI agent. UST ensues. They are helped by a socially retarded supergenius, a conspiracy-theorist slime expert, and a good-hearted, free-spirited artist. (guessed by chinesebakery)

2) The Closer. Southern Belle who is also a CIA-trained interrogator and her quirky side-kicks fight crime. (guessed by azhureheart)

3) Star Trek: DS9. A commander who never quite got over the death of his wife in the worst military loss his government ever had, a beautiful young woman with dark spots whom he keeps calling "old man," a hot-headed genius engineer, and an ambitious doctor straight out of medical school go where extremely ugly aliens have gone before and stay there. They meet a former freedom fighter and a security officer who sleeps in a bucket. (guessed by tokenblkgirl)

4) Dallas. Three millionaire businessmen live in one house. One of them gets shot. (guessed by jayeindc)

5) Prison Break. A man deliberately gets himself thrown in prison — after having his escape plan tattooed over his entire body. (guessed by chinesebakery)

6) The West Wing. Trivia enthusiast attempts to solve world's problems with help of young idealists. This involves a lot of lengthy conversations conducted whilst walking up and down corridors. (guessed by chinesebakery)

7) Lie to me. An obnoxious Brit and a quirky team accuse people of lying and are usually right. (guessed by chinesebakery)

8) Profit. Richard III goes '90s, has sex with his stepmom, and plays computer games naked. (guessed by tokenblkgirl)

9) Alias. A supermodel genius with abandonment issues teams up with the group she thought she was working for to bring down the team pretending to be the other team. Then she goes back to working for the team she didn't know she was really working for when the real team hires the fake team to be on their team. Also, there's magic water. (guessed by azhureheart)

10) Friends. Spoiled brat, paleontologist, second-rate soap opera actor, Deadpan Snarker who hates his job, chef with OCD, and Cloudcuckoolander deal with weird daily life and drink lots of gourmet coffee. (guessed by chinesebakery)

Yes!
To be honest, I used this one to be a bit tricky *g* Given the summary and how old the show is, I wasn't sure at all anyone would guess.

I've watched a few soap operas when I was younger - not so much anymore - and although I was more about Knots Landing, I liked Dallas.

I was a bit limited by the summaries available on the site. Otherwise, Quantum Leap and Boston Legal would certainly be here too ^_^
