Great crossword puzzle moments in entertainment history (Video)

Ever noticed how people in movies and on TV shows can fill in crossword puzzle answers at lightning speed? The good people at Vulture did.

Inspired by last night’s premiere of “The Hour” on BBC America, which contained a touch of puzzle-solving, the video editors at the New York Magazine blog put together this mash-up of great puzzling moments in television and film. Highlighted works include “The Simpsons,” “Seinfeld” and “Community.” Watch, enjoy, then go do one of these.
