Don't judge me for this super-intelligent and ambitious topic  :D

Have you recognized, that most of the episodes begin with an article?

The Promised Land
The Easy Life
The Shadow of Efrafa
The Raid
The Vision
The Prisoner of Efrafa
The Roundabout
The Market
The Great Water
The Stand
The Orchard
The Great Game
The Invasion
The Homecoming
The Last Battle
The Wanderes
The Nestling
The Secret of Redstone
The Dark Deal
The Eyes of Silverweed
The Spy
The Betrayal
The Beginning of the End
The Magic

In german, there are only 14 episodes.

This was our today's lesson in useless knowledge from Watership Down.  :yes

No kidding...and I'm guilty of the same thing in everything I've written! I think the T-Word is just a bit too useful for writers and film-makers not to overuse it a bit. But it is a funny useless knowledge! :D

And to mention:

We got 3 articles in german: der, die, das

So it's not so dreary  :exactly

Shame on the writers for being lazy. :p

While we're on titles, in a topic somewhere in this place I brought up the title "Strawberry Fayre" as being unusual.

Maybe the writers believe that titles with "the" in it are cooler. Something like people thinking that painting car red makes it go faster. :p

But these names totally ruins using alphabetical order to sort things when storaging them. Now you need three rooms with "T" and one shelf for "Others" and another one for "0-9".
