Over the years, we, the fans of the show, started to refer to episodes in acronym form rather than writing out the title of each episode, which in some cases, is rather long (TOGOM for That Old Gang of Mine, DTOSC for Don't Tug on Superman's Cape, etc.). Since the abbreviations can be confusing for those not used to them, I have created a reference guide that includes each episode, its acronym and the season in which it aired.

Hope this helps!

P.S. Any corrections welcomed. Please send to the e-mail associated with this nick.

A million gazillion thanks! I ran into this earlier and am so glad you posted the list. It sure helps those of us who aren't used to the abreviations. I am sure that once you start using them it is like 2nd nature.

Thanks Deb. I was always going to make a list but never got around to it. I've printed it out and hung it on the bulletin board next to my computer along with some of the reunion pics and pics of my late cat.

Thank you so much! I'm used to the system (well, TTWII is Elvis' Thats The Way It Is album) but if you run into these things here as a newbie, you can get a bit lost. Thx!

Thanks for doing this Deb. It's an awesome resource for all FOLCs, but especially for new members of our fandom because we do tend to use them a lot. It's also nice to have them all in one place because it can be easy to forget the acronyms for the less talked about eps.

You did an awesome job and very good deed.

Works for me. But I ought to be ashamed of myself. I've been a member of the boards for at least a few years, and I still don't get all the acronyms! Bad me!!!

George and Lynn are fictional characters who may, um, resemble certain real-life actors. There are three authors who have written stories -- myself, Echo, and Wanda D. The stories are all awesome, but the content (adultery is a prevelent theme) is not for everyone.

Thanks for the list. I think that I will use this list because I often read something about LaC on other sites and I didn´t understand the names .. so .. maybe with this list I will understand.
