Clue 1: Complete Man => Manor --> The Manor --> Aaron Spelling's home

Clue 2: Funding -> Grant -> Grant Show who acted in Melrose Place -> created by Aaron Spelling

Clue 3: Actwoundy => do hurty -> Shannen doherty -> BH90210 -> created by Aaron Spelling

Who's the Trylateral? Aaron Spelling

srividya said...

Q...u seem to have done it again (as usual) :)
tho i dont really get the first clue... how is complete man - manor?

q said...

I took 'Complete Man' to mean 'complete the word Man__' Hence Manor.
Apparently Aaron Spelling had/has the Largest family home in the U.S and it is called "The Manor".

I am not sure if that is what was originally intended by Mr. TLA.

-q

srividya said...

hi q - tks - the manor thingy not strong enuf...had thot of it and picked that trail up after the doherty revelation...tho i dont think complete man is raymonds... what abt a homosapien link (evolution of man)? and why is LOTR ref to as TLA? his fullname?

q said...

why is LOTR ref to as TLA? his fullname?
Nah. TLA => Try Lateral Anantha

srividya said...

TLA - sure but prefer the LOTR - one ringmaster to bind us all and bring us (keep us awake) in the darkness. we r the nazgul of course - tho more than 9!
