Its that time again.
Managed a poor 5 out of the first 12.

The first picture is from Orange is the New Black.
Lea DeLaria is the actress, Big Boo is her character name.
The prison is Litchfield.

BUMP - usually get a good entry (and high scoring!) in this most years.

I'll hopefully have time to catch up later.

No one feel brave enough yet to throw in an answer to the picture link?
Day 1)
Orange is the New Black.
Lea DeLaria is the actress, Carrie Black is her character name, or Big Boo
The prison is Litchfield.
Day 2)
Leonardo DiCaprio in the Revenant
Legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team.
Day 3) Is a bit of a mystery
Does the sign have the interstate no. missing?
Day 4)
Cecil B. DeMille

Just a thought.
First one is well known as Big Boo.
Leo DiCaprio recently criticized the 7 main oil companies that form Big Oil
New Orleans is known as the Big Easy.
Struggling to link CBD with big though.

Could the last "big" reference be to Sunset Boulevard "I Am Big, It's the Pictures That Got Small" ?
