Q: 1970s live action Spider-Man TV series fancy dress episode

Danny Mc GDid this happen or am I suffering from the Mandela Effect? I remember watching a live action episode of The Amazing Spider-Man in the late 1970s and Peter Parker was getting ready to go to a fancy dress party at his high school. His aunt had made him a costume (maybe a cavalier but I'm not sure) ...

Q: Background text in title sequence of The 100?

MichaelStarting in season 2, the opening title sequences of The 100 highlight features of the scenery with text overlays. I can't get enough resolution to read the majority of them; are they meaningful or random, and are there legible versions anywhere out there?

Q: Which Star Wars character has been produced more than any of its kind?

Bingo MehndraI was watching again the American science fiction film The Planet of the Apes (1968) and the scene at the place where Dr. Cornelius has been doing archeological excavations, near the Forbidden Zone, made me wonder: What if, instead of a human doll, a Star Wars character had been found, not saying "...

Q: Is the a reason why so many sites have the same number of referrals?

SkoobaI was taking a stroll through some site analytics today and something caught my eye in the traffic sources, that many (11 exactly) SE referring sites have exactly 776 visits. This seems to continue when after 776 the number drops to 388 which is exactly half of 776, however only 2 sites are shown...

jwodderIn the first season finale of Raised by Wolves (which is executive produced by Ridley Scott), Mother is almost killed by a mysterious figure in rags (presumably the same figure seen in the cave under the giant snake skeleton in episode 5), but she kills them first. When the figure's face is reve...

Q: Novel involving "lazarus pool"-esque resurrections and cloning and alternate timeline vendettas

LCDR FishRead this in paperback around 2013 - pretty new printing at the time. Started with an alternate history '40s era noir detective in wartime L.A. (or something similar). Flashed back to some 19th century prospectors finding some sort of mystical pool that could clone/resurrect you - the two had a...

Q: Hidden-away man found dead, was addicted to a fancy/medical form of opioids

bobbleI read this as an English-language paperback book, bought from a discount bookstore in an Australian (likely Melbourne) shopping mall late 2019. No idea how old it was at the time. The title was bland and "literary" (as opposed to cool and spec-fic-y, the main other category of title according to...

Q: German (?) film from 1970s with reporter with artificial eye camera following a dying person

Will NessVery vaguely remembering this, in a world where there's no incurable disease left, a reporter follows a last dying person (who maybe refuses treatment for some reason?), without them knowing. They maybe fall in love. (?) The reporter has an eye replaced with a camera, to constantly record / broad...
