Monday, October 27, 2014, Stanley Newman


This is a pretty straightforward Monday puzzle, with a pretty weak theme. DICKVANDYKE (21A: Eponymous star of a 1960s sitcom, the only American TV star with his three initials), DEATHVALLEYDAYS (37A: Long-running western anthology, the only American TV series with its three initials), and DVDRECORDER (53A: TV hookup option … or what you are by solving this puzzle?). Lame.

Pretty much the only interesting fill is NERVECELL (8D: Place for an axon).

The end.

- Horace


  1. Lame-o theme. DVDRECORDER? Is that even a thing?

  2. 7:08 (One second longer than Horace!)
    Wow...harsh review! I guess I agree. I did, however, star 23D Raucous (NOISY) because that's the theme of our Saturday hot tub sessions at the YBH. And what about 24A Author Gay (TALESE)? We don't see that every day. Other than that, I guess it was somewhat uninteresting.
