See at first I thought it mean like Sea Bass..... ha yeah that threw me through a loop. Then I realized they meant like bass as in beat but for some stupid reason I tried "the trebles" instead of the sopranos. Just not my question to get right.

Did you watch the American remake or the original Korean version? As with most American remakes of foreign films they completely botched it, the Korean version is fantastic.

For the Mad about me clue, I would go with "Happy about Me" instead of "Sane about me." I kept getting stuck on Crazy for the antonym of sane.

Mad, as used in the show title, doesn't mean angry (the opposite of happy). It means crazy, so sane is the best antonym

I was stopped at 3:00 in the morning on the way to work a couple of weeks ago by a tough guy cop who had no reason to pull me over. He repeatedly demanded an explanation as to why I was out at that time of the night and would not accept the answer I gave him. Even though it was none of his damn business, I poIitely explained that I do not have a set work schedule and wanted to travel downtown before morning traffic started and then leave work before afternoon traffic started. After passing three different field sobriety tests, he let me go but followed me for over ten miles and watched me get out of my car, unlock the door to my building, and go inside. He then spent the next two hours illegally parked in front of the building staring through the glass. Meanwhile, I am sure that actual crime was being radioed in and he he was "too busy" to respond. This isnt the only incident I have had, only the most recent. There are too many stories like this and several that are vastly worse.

I have also come across some very good cops. Unfortunately, there aren't enough of those guys to make up for the rotten bastards that are out there. If you want evidence of this, look at the quiz on numbers of people imprisoned by country that was featured a day or two ago. We have too many people incarcerated to call ourselves the land of the free. This is a product of overzealous policing and over aggressive sentencing. In training, the emphasis needs to be on "protect and serve". Procedures need to be set in motion to mete out punishment when instances of "threaten and harass" occur.

Although all individual cops do not fit the definition, I think that conceptually "Cops" should work as an antonym for villains.

Monk isn't the opposite to a nun. I would say that the word "whore" is actually the opposite of "nun." Perhaps try "Gregarious?"

For these kinds of quizzes, the opposite-gender version of something is usually considered an "antonym" (see: boy/girl). And if you're trying to say that a monk isn't exactly a male nun . . . well, shoot, I'd say it's close enough for government work.
