As many contestants correctly worked out, each item in each series becomes a film title if a particular word (plus, in some cases, “The”) is added to it, and the added words have a logical order. Here are the correct answers and complete series of films:
1. Hearts: Red Heat, Orange County, Yellow Submarine, Green Card, Blue Velvet, Indigo Hearts (rainbow colors)
2. Jennifer: (The) Fantastic Four, Slaughterhouse-Five, (The) Secret Six, (The) Magnificent Seven, Jennifer Eight
