I have a very odd suggestion for a series of FanFare posts. I don't know if anyone would interested, or if it even quite fits the way Fanfare works. The idea is to watch everything which features the Courthouse Square set (most famously used in Back to The Future)

This would include:

An Act of Murder (1948)
Ma and Pa Kettle (1949–1954)
It Came from Outer Space (1953)
Tarantula (1955)
The Monolith Monsters (1957)
Leave It to Beaver (1957–1963)
The Twilight Zone: "Where Is Everybody?" (1959; first episode)
Inherit the Wind (1960)
To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
The Music Man (1962)
Bye Bye Birdie (1963)
Village of the Giants (1965)
How to Frame a Figg (1971)
The Alpha Caper (1973)
The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo (1978)
Psycho II (1983)
Simon & Simon (1981–1988)
Knight Rider: "Good Day At White Rock" (1982)
The New Leave It to Beaver (1984–1988)
Gremlins (1984)
Back to the Future (1985)
Magnum, P.I. (1986)
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (1988)
Back to the Future Part II (1989)
Sneakers (1992)
Weird Science (1994-1998)
Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1994)
Three Wishes (1995)
The Nutty Professor (1996)
Jingle All the Way (1996)
Escape from L.A. (1996)
Batman & Robin (1997)
Amistad (1997)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1998)
Sliders (1999)
The Offspring: "Why Don't You Get a Job?" (1999)
Gilmore Girls (2000)
Bruce Almighty (2003)
The Cat in the Hat (2003)
Ghost Whisperer (2005–2010)
A Nintendo DS Commercial (2005)
The Edge of Glory: Lady Gaga (2011)
Saving Mr Banks (2014)

I'm intrigued by the idea, but I wonder if this might make a better Mefi megapost than it would a series of FanFare ones. I don't know how many comments we'd get on a Nintendo commercial or a random 'Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman' episode, and FanFare isn't nearly as popular as the main site, so it seems like it could potentially be better on the main page.

That's a good idea. I will start putting a post together on it.
