I used to be really good at solving mysteries, puzzles and riddles when I was young. Last night I watched the first of a 6 part series called The Disappearance. It was about the disappearance of a young boy. It was really well-made and well-acted. I can't wait for the next part. I hope it doesn't get too creepy or violent because if it does, I won't watch the rest. Did you see it? Do you like to solve mysteries, puzzles, riddles? Are you good at it? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Did you know that the Bible is full of mysteries, puzzles, and riddles? It starts of with a puzzle. Genesis 3:15 New International Version 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” Who is the "you", the "woman", the "offsprings", the "head" and the "heel"? Proverbs 1:6 New International Version 6 for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise.
Premiering October 1 on CTV, the original series stars Aden Young (RECTIFY), Peter Coyote (E.T.) and Camille Sullivan (THE MAN IN HIGH CASTLE).

Interesting, terrible at them always have been terrible and remember in school they used to try to tell us this is a way to determine how smart you are. My problem is never saw the purpose for them. It just does not translate in real life. They can be fun and maybe they can help develop a young child's mind, but kind of a waste of time in terms of actual teaching kids for the real world, unless they are just building character. My opinion of course

I do like them, but I'm not always good at them. I consider myself lucky when I can figure them out.

@JustBhem I wish you were watching it as it develops and we could try to figure out as to why the boy has disappeared. I have a feeling that the boy might be involved in his own disappearance.

I like to guess who did it in mysteries. I'm often right and I like word jumbles but I'm no good at cross word puzzles.

If you can figure out the perpetrator in the movie then you must be good. How are you with puzzles and riddles?

I used to enjoy a good mystery but such shows got too violent or dark. I hope you'll be able to finish watching this series.

This Genesis 3:15 we have learned at our meetings and I remember one person in the Bible, who liked to use riddles when he fought the enemies of Israel.. (Judges chapter 14) I like some riddles, but am not good at solving them - but some solutions are brilliant..

I just saw episode two and it is amazing. I hope it doesn't get too creepy as I would want to watch it till the end. A good mystery doesn't have to be creepy or too violent.

Yes, I am because I will will read between the lines. I used to do crossword puzzles daily, I got bored with those. But I like to find facts to back up peoples claims. I wanted to be an attorney when I was younger. Nope did not watch that show.

Too bad that you are not watching it as we could discuss what was going and see if we have figured out the reason for the boy's disappearance.
