Last night, my heart was nearly broken when I sat down in front of the Tivo, ready to be amazed with a new episode of Veronica Mars, when I saw that there would be no new episodes for this week. To cheer myself up, I thought we should do something for the TVgasm readers, because it has been a few weeks since our last giveaway, and I know the readers are hungry for more. Everybody knows that the people here at TVgasm are a little obsessed with television, so what would be better for a giveaway than a television show featuring a person with a lot of their own obsessions? The show I am talking about is Monk, on USA Networks. The show airs Fridays at 10 PM EST (check local listings), and the new season begins Friday, March 3rd. Read on for more information on what you can win, and how to win it.As we all know, Monk is a very obsessive detective, but it doesn’t stop there. Monk also has an inordinate amount of phobias. This all makes for hilarious mystery-solving hijinx, all wrapped in a nice little bundle we call Tony Shaloub. To keep in the spirt of the show, we thought we would feature a little bit of a scavenger hunt throughout the TVgasm archives. It will test your knowledge of TVgasm and give you something to do if you are bored at work.
We have placed four fingerprints like the one at the left throughout the TVgasm Archives. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, and you kind of have to accept it to enter the contest, is to find the four articles where we have placed fingerprints. Hey, what can be better than reading old TVgasm articles? You’ll send us the names of those four articles as your entry. No scavenger hunt is good without clues, so here they are:
- One fingerprint is placed in a recap about a show featuring a character with a penis head.
- One fingerprint is placed in a recap about a show that could also be called Stupendous Junket.
- One fingerprint is placed in a recap about a show featuring robots, lying, and friendship.
- One fingerprint is placed in a recap about a show that could also be known as Upcoming United States Exceptional Diva.
To enter, send the titles of the four recaps where the fingerprints appear to email@example.com, with the subject Scavenger Hunt. You have until the premiere of Monk, Friday, March 3rd, to enter. If these clues aren’t good enough for you, I’ll make it a little easier next week. Remember, one entry per e-mail address/household, you must be eighteen to enter, and winners must live in the United States or Canada. The winners will be chosen by random draw among the people with the correct answers.
So, what do you win? First prize is a DVD box set of Monk Season 2, a signed script of the episode “Mr Monk Goes To The Office,” and a Monk T-shirt. That is one nice little set of prizes, if I do say so myself. That’s not all, because second, third, fourth and FIFTH place winners will all receive a Monk t-shirt. That makes your chances of winning even greater than seeing Paris Hilton’s vagina or Lindsay Lohan in the hospital in the next two weeks. You gotta like those odds.
Please don’t give away the titles to the posts in the comments because it will take the fun out of the game and I will ban you from posting for a few months. Good luck everybody!
