Yesterday I had lunch with my grandma and she told me about this pilot episode she saw in a local TV channel. She's a bit senile though, so she could not remember the name of any of the characters.
Oh dear, what an ugly TV film I saw yesterday! There were these four weird characters living together...
For starters, I don't really know what that famous actor was doing there. He's so handsome, I'm sure you know him, he was in that big film a couple decades ago...
Oh, and then there was a man with huge wings, but I think he messed up his costume because he looked like a gladiator as well, can you believe?
A third one was a famous stylist. I thought she was busy partying around... oh well, I guess you can get tired of it, right?
But let me tell you about the fourth one: he was the weirdest one. It was a hedgehog, I think? Anyway, it sat down all curled up without doing anything, but all the other ones kept talking with that round spiky thing... Now that I think of it, I guess it was the most important one, because it was covered in gold. A golden hedgehog, can you think of it?
Anyway, I think the people running this TV channel realized that it was a really horrible series, because it went down after some minutes with apologies about some copyright infringement.
Can you help her remember?
What are the names of the characters?
What is the TV series it tried to copy?
-Having a golden hedgehog as a character sure is a strange choice... but I guess the authors put it there because it has a cute snout?
-Oh, but its snout wasn't visible at all! I told you, it was completely covered in a sort of golden tinfoil!
-Wait, what? No, you didn't! So how could you tell it was a hedgehog?
-Uuuh... I mean, it was round and kind of spiky, sitting in its brown basket as if it was a pet, what else could it be?
-I wonder how it is for a stylist to suddenly become an actor. I mean, she sure is more used to cameras than others, but it must be difficult.
-Oh no, I remember her appearing in at least another film before! However, that one was about fashion, so maybe it wasn't difficult for her. If only I could remember her name...
-So we have a nameless famous actor, a nameless famous stylist, a nameless... winged man in armor and, what, a nameless golden spiky ball. Grandma, this is not much, really... don't you remember at least the characters' names?
-That's one of the problem, my dear... during the show they called each other with their actual names! Many of them had foreign-sounding names, now that I think of it...
-You said that the famous actor was in a famous film. Do you remember more about it?
-Of course. It was an enormous romantic film. It didn't end well, though. At the time, it gave me chills.
