My Living Doll - TV Shows
A seriously obscure show that deserves a look, mostly for the interesting (and skilled) performances given by (two of my all-time favorites; Bob Cummings and (the ever elegant and beautiful Julie Newmar). Definitely, a B-level effort by the associated TV station, but, ultimately, a situation in which the final product was greater than the "sum of its parts". Fortunately, the series wasn't 'lost' (which it surely could have been). See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Living_Doll#DVD_release and for free ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ShixDbF_js ). Seriously, check it out. Once you get past the initial (implied) sexual/baby doll presentation of Ms. Newmar, in the original first episode (admittedly, I had some difficulty with that), you'll see a very good premise for a sitcom that was cancelled far too soon... -- Submitted By: () on September 18, 2014, 9:18 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
Believe me, this show was the business in the 1980s. There were exit stage rights, new kids in town, puberties and unbelievable facts. The Cosby Show first boned when another Cosby kid (Sondra) was added. Cosby said they only had four children in the beginning. Then, over time, new characters like Elvin and Cockaroach were added. Cosby went through his black consciousness phase and brought Denise to Hillman. Because of the actors hair, Cockaroach was no longer on the show. The only one with steady friendships on there was Rudy. Rudy never hit it off with Bud, which was a disappointment for all. How were Cosby's parents still alive? How many grandparents were on that show?! The worst change to happen to the show was Lisa Bonet going on to star on A Different World. The show fell apart after that. Sandra became a huge word that rhymes with witch. Theo wasn't as lovable after he hit puberty. His charm wore off. Rudy grew a mustache and Vanessa had her share of terrible hairdos. The fish was tailless once Denise's husband Martin and Raven Simone joined the ensemble. Raven brought nothing to the show and Theo bloomed into an intelligent young man over night. Of course, I was as heartbroken as Dwayne Wayne was over my crush marrying plain old Martin. There were still some good episodes here and there, but it wasn't as good as it was at first. Over the summer of 90, we were informed through TV Guide that yet aaanother person was coming to stay in the Huxtable household. Who else but Erica Alexander as, the never mentioned before season 7, Cousin Pam. She was brought on to be like an urban Cosby kid. The premise failed because Pam's friend, Charlamane, had a voice which sounded like nails on a chalkboard. The last episode aired after the LA Riots coverage, if I remember correctly. Theo graduated which served as the final fact that Heathcliff was an excellent well educated father. All in all, it was a good show, but the show went in too many different directions. -- Submitted By: () on September 13, 2014, 8:48 pm

DuckTales - TV Shows
I agree that the show was weakened by the gimmicky characters, but I don't think it enough to call it a Fish Boner. I do remember missing some of the neglected early characters like Gyro in the 2nd season, though. -- Submitted By: () on September 3, 2014, 12:59 am

Girlfriends - TV Shows
Monica is annoying. I don't know what the hell the writers were thinking when putting her in more episodes. Wait, yes I do, they thought that maybe the viewers would be too dumb to notice that they were trying to use her to fill Toni's spot. News flash, you can't introduce Monica to us as being this evil golddigger villian who seduced William and hates all the Girlfriends, then 3 seasons later expect everybody to just embrace her like she's been their homegirl since Day 1. WTF? "Let's make Joan and Monica suddenly become BFF's! Since Toni's gone, they'll suddenly be pals!" -- Submitted By: () on September 1, 2014, 3:46 pm

Dark Shadows - TV Shows
When I was young, I really enjoyed the show, basically though most of it's run up until at least the final parallel time arc, but in hindsight and having rewatched it, I have to revise that radically, and many fans will probably disagree with me. I believe the show jumped the shark when instead of being about Victoria Winters it became the adventures of Barnabas and Julia. And then several times they attempted to recreate the 1795 story line (the height of the series) in different times, with ever declining originality. It's been popular to say that the show didn't 'really' take off until Barnabas, but after they repeat plots for the 2nd or even 3rd time I started to miss the first couple hundred episodes that had more character build up and not nearly as much supernatural elements. -- Submitted By: () on August 25, 2014, 9:12 pm

Air America Radio - Random Topics
Actually it's the opposite--most people start off liberal when they're young and don't know any better, and then when they get jobs and families and have to pay taxes and worry about what their kids are being exposed to they make the switch because they realize all that liberal pie in the sky stuff doesn't fly in the real world. Kinda like the guy who sowed his oats in high school and college who turns into Mr. Abstinence when he has a daughter. -- Submitted By: () on August 20, 2014, 3:08 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
Later into the show, is it me or was everyone either paying tribute to a dead or near death jazz musician, wearing a turban and African jewelry, or otherwise highlighting something or someone as though every month were Black History Month? 20 minute long speeches by all 8 sets of grandparents about the Civil Rights movement during card games??? Granted, there is nothing wrong with a person expressing pride in their race, but I was more interested in the Cosbys and the comedy they provided the first couple of seasons, if I wanted. -- Submitted By: () on August 18, 2014, 6:06 pm

To Catch A Predator - TV Shows
"South Park" did a parody of this show where the host lures people to a house and then keeps telling them to "take a seat." When Conan O'Brien hosted the Emmys a few years ago, he was transported into various TV shows, including this one. -- Submitted By: () on July 23, 2014, 1:34 pm

CNN - Random Topics
For anyone who thinks CNN is unbiased, may I point you to Piers Morgan's deplorable actions after Sandy Hook? He took to the airwaves for weeks screaming that gun owners are all nuts. His town hall debate, which he monopolized and used to berate those attending with opposing viewpoints, was a shining example of his bias. Even my stepdad, who is a STAUNCH liberal, thought he had gone too far and was discrediting his position by being an asshole. If that's not enough for you, perhaps we can include Susan Roesgen's positive meltdown at a Chicago Tea Party protest, during which she sputtered accusations of fascism and Fox News hate. Or how about Rick Sanchez's attempts to equate pro-lifers to Westboro Baptists? How about the fact that Michael Moore still has a recurring spot on CNN? How about their plethora of left-leaning "original specials?" Yeah, real down-the-middle there. /sarcasm -- Submitted By: () on July 22, 2014, 10:33 am

Family Ties - TV Shows
I liked this show for about the first half of the first season, when it stuck to its original premise of a pair of middle aged ex-hippies now living a middle class existence with three varied children who did not share their ideals. But then it became "The Alex P. Keaton Show", everyone else was relegated to background status, and I stopped watching. -- Submitted By: () on May 29, 2014, 2:04 pm

I have been watching this show for awhile now, and it is definately not a "kids show." There are adult references everywhere. I love it! -- Submitted By: () on May 10, 2014, 10:56 pm

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
They lost a HUGE amount of funding because Lucas sued for copyright infringement, completely ridiculous, TOTALLY different premise than Star Wars,,,,so funding was RADICALLY cut, this is the cause of the majority of the complaints on here,,,,i.e., little to no special effects, characters disappearing,,,,then it was moved to a Sunday night format where the FCC had decreed that all Sunday night programming had to be educational,,,so no more cool laser fights,,,,by then it was just Apollo and Starbuck ferrying a bunch of stupid kids (Jason, Moonstone, and Starla, anyone?) around, flying motorcycles,,,,and lots of other stupid crap but the station had to do the best they were given,,,,I don't even want to talk about how Godawful G1980 was,,,,except the last episode with the return of Starbuck,,,,,one part that was unintentionally hilarious was how in the voiceovers Starbuck sounds like a polished poet, and the quality of the special effects went down with Cy the Cylon because the suits wanted to have a character that was more identifiable so you can actually hear the actors tones in Cy's dialogue,,,,,never could really get into the new ones, though there were a few good scenes,,,, -- Submitted By: () on April 29, 2014, 4:45 pm

V (1984) - TV Shows
The miniseries was good, they "dumbed it down" for a TV audience with the half-breed girl, Elizabeth "magically" absorbing the force of the bomb. In the book it made MUCH more sense,she was a prodigy, and she saved the day, but by programming the countdown into an endless loop so the bomb would never explode. The TV show boned almost immediately by killing off main characters like Elias and Martin, cheap special effects, Donovan captured/escaping over and over,,,,,we didn't have "Bone the Fish" as a statement back then, but I remember thinking that as a thirteen-year old kid! And the recently-released sequel novels all sucked too,,,,the original novels during the eighties were okay but the CRAP released in the last few years were garbage,,,seemed more interested in talking about deviant sex acts between humans and Visitors than anything else,,,,, -- Submitted By: () on April 29, 2014, 3:03 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
I wouldn't say Season 6 is where it officially jumped because there are some great/classic episodes in S6, like A Stash from the Past, Lies My Father Told Me and Don't Ask Don't Tell, just to name a few. Season 6 is an above average season in general. Honestly, Season 7 is when things got a lot less funny and characters seemed to become complete caricatures of themselves. I have no problem with women cutting their hair, but for some reason, as soon as Jackie cut her hair, it was like "BAM, I'm going to act like a cross between Ellen DeGeneres and Barney Fife now!". I personally think the show should have ended at the end of S6, because the show would have went out on a high note. But instead, it went on for 3 more utterly unnecessary seasons, in which Jackie's character suddenly exists only to pop into a room, grimace and say something insanely slapstick, clutch onto Andy for dear life, and go right back out. She and Roseanne didn't even seem close anymore at that point. Another thing I noticed is that, even though I liked David, he began getting more airtime than necessary (more than DARLENE, DJ, JACKIE, etc) and Mark went from being the smooth bad boy/rebel (think "Fonz" from Happy Days) to being dumber than a box of rocks. But the actual shark jump moment that there was absolutely no turning back from was when the hit the lottery. The sharks had been swarming around for awhile before that, but when the Conners were suddenly multimillionaires the shark was jumped, maimed, and suffered a bloody gory death. The lottery episode was completely uncalled for, unrealistic and it also went against everything the show was supposed to be about in the first place. That was the definite point of no return, and the show continued to head into a continuous downward spiral for the rest of it's run. After they won the lottery, the charm of the show was gone, the characters (which had already started to become caricatures of their former selves) were no longer funny, relatable, and the chemistry that they used to have was absent. Everything was suddenly awkward and no longer even felt like "Roseanne". -- Submitted By: () on April 24, 2014, 11:44 pm

Chick Tracts - Random Topics
A Chick Tract led me to the Lord, but Mr. Chick is a bit opinionated. I attended a Catholic Mass this past Easter, Mary (That's Jesus Mother for those of you in Rio Linda!) was mentioned only once, DISPROVING Catholics are nothing more than a bunch of stark raving Mary Worshipers. As a matter of fact they mentioned many of the same things my church (Baptist)did. They mentioned that Adam and Eve caused sin to enter this world, and all of us have sinned one time or another. They also said the "Blessed Hope" (That's The Rapture for those of you in Rio Linda!) could take place at any time. IMHO Catholics are Christians, they just worship god differently, and there is NOTHING wrong with that. PS if Jack Chick thinks he knows EVERYTHING about Christians there is a little test he can take. Fill an olympic sized pool with water. Put in 10,000 HUNGRY Piranhas (This is Optional but it kind of makes things a little more interesting LOL). Mr Chick will then walk the length of the pool. If he's 100% right it shouldn't be any problem. What's that, you aren't 100% right? In that case Bon Appetit Fishies! -- Submitted By: () on April 21, 2014, 12:12 pm
