CHARADAGRAMS 2
This puzzle was written for patron Jack Bross, who supports me at the $5+ level on Patreon and is therefore entitled to one bonus puzzle every month. One solver of this bonus puzzle is randomly picked to suggest one word or phrase for me to incorporate into a puzzle. His August 2016 suggestion is used here.
When the answers to the PARTS clues are anagrammed and then assembled, they form the answers to the WHOLES clues. For example, if three of the PARTS clues are “Forearm bone”, “Holy item associated with a saint”, and “Telepathy and such”, and a WHOLES clue is “Event in which the Earth casts a shadow”, then the answers ULNA, RELIC, and ESP can be anagrammed and assembled into LUNA/R ECLI/PSE. PARTS clues are in alphabetical order by their answers; WHOLES clues are in no particular order, and you must determine which answer goes in which row of blanks. The letters in the shaded squares, reading down, will form two words that can be anagrammed and assembled into the final answer, the title of a television series.
