So, could someone please explain exactly what a "whodunit" is?
Well, now we have to get into spelling, as the meaning of the term may change, depending on how many n's are in it. Even DishSubLA (the whodunit expert) is inconsistent on this point:I do appreciate when someone counters and takes the time with facts or information. I would say you are technically correct but in the broader sense of generalizing a show in using a short term, whodunnit is ok.
OK, y'all know tha Columbo was NEVER a "whodunnit," right? That kind of stuff does burn me a bit .
So, can we agree that whodunit (with one n) is the proper term for a specific type of mystery as defined by DishSubLA above, while whodunnit (with two n's) is a derogatory broader term for any type of mystery (or procedural) show where somebody has to solve a crime, whether the audience is in on who committed the crime or not?A "whodunit" is NOT from the character's perspective, but from the perspective of the audience.
I was just too lazy to do that, thanks! LOLOn a side note, I wouldn't mind if there somehow could be social based guide information so it could be corrected. But Imdb started out like that then look what happened. The founders sold it and now Amazon owns it. They have even integrated it into their app as Xray.
And as a bonus, here is the actual Coyote, the true form of... The Invaders!

Please, that reply coming from the ultimate OCD member who appears to have such a vacant trust baby schedule as allowoing him time ad infinitim to post multiple replies in every single thread, it seems, on this forum? I really do hope you work for Dish and this is your job because if it isn't, there needs to be an intervention to, at the very least allow you a bathroom break and change of underwear before you become President Trump's mythical “. . . someone sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds [at a computer]” pounding away on a computer keyboard. [Your green grinning emoji here].Okay, DishSubLA, we all get the point. I am starting to think you have OCD.
Guilty as charged!Please, that reply coming from the ultimate OCD member ...
But ... but ... all everyone has to do is agree with me, and then there will be no need for any long posts in response.
