Sledge Hammer, arguably a heavy-handed pun.

@Peter_pbn I agree with @mariojacobs​ Just Shoot Me I think makes sense with what your going for here. love the poll and it's hard to choose for me because some many of these titles are clever and punny. I will say however Better Off Ted was a hidden gem. One of my favorite shows of all time. I highly suggest if you guys haven't taken a look at it to give it a chance.

I wasn't sure what the meaning was. Is it because "shoot" refers to photography?

@Peter_pbn​ Yes, they work for a fashion magazine.

In France, we had "Camera Café", a series equivalent of the "Office" but set during coffee breaks, the title is a pun on "Camera Cachée" (Candid Camera)

@Peter_pbn ,

For your consideration:

It's About Time

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059997/

Two astronauts traveling faster than light go back in time to prehistoric Earth. Unable to return, they make friends with the "natives."

The series is about time travel to prehistoric Earth.

It's about time can also mean: Why did you take so long.
