    I would like to add to #10 that they were all theme songs that charted.

    Rae says:

    lol – Jody! I threw Charmed in there with #5 just because I figured it’d help you get it.

    Also, there was a hint in that last one for ya too. ;)

    @Gemini: Close on the 2nd one but I think you were thinking of Boston Legal instead of Boston Public. The other’s got it though, they were all David E. Kelley productions. (As was Boston Legal so I see where you would have mistaken the two!)

    @Scooter: Really? Awesome. I didn’t even realize that… Errr, I mean, yeah I totally meant for them to have that connection too. ;)

    And, yay, y’all got the rest! Glad it wasn’t too hard. I was afraid it wouldn’t be all that fun to try and figure them out. :)

    Just Jody says:

    Ha. I was going to guess show’s with three sisters for #5 because I’ve only seen FH & Charmed. But I was pretty sure Monk didn’t have 3 sisters. :)

    The funniest thing, is that as soon as I read #10 I started singing “believe it or not, I’m walking on air, never thought I could feel so freeee” in my head, but I still never clued in that they were song titles! And of COURSE I should have known “I’ll be there for you”!

    Also? You will laugh SO much harder at this in a few weeks. (You’ll understand then.)

    6. Dick Solomon, Isabel Evans, Mork, ALF – Aliens
    7. Magnum, P.I.; Wings, Lost, Gilligan’s Island – ABC Shows? (this is a guess, too)
    8. Richie Cunningham, Joan Holloway, Dana Scully, Wilma Flinestone – Redheads
    9. Jefferson, Winslow, Bayside, West Beverly – High School
    10. “Believe It Or Not,” “Cleveland Rocks,” “I’ll Be There For You,” “Bad Boys” – Theme Songs

    Rae says:

    Close, Jen! Just got the two location ones wrong, #5 & #7. Though California is probably close enough for #5.

    Good guess on #7 tho! But Wings aired on NBC and Magnum and Gilligan’s Island were on CBS. As I’m sure you’ve seen, the connection there was that they all take place on Islands.
