WGN - Random Topics
The WGN which airs locally in Chicago is not the same as WGN America. Basically, the only programming the two separate entities both air are Cubs baseball games and the local Chicago area news. While WGN America airs the likes of Scrubs, Til Death, Matlock, In the Heat of the Night, Walker Texas Ranger and America's Funniest Home Videos, the local WGN in Chicago airs programming such as 30 Rock, Friends, Andy Griffith Show, a 5 hour daily morning news program, Live with Kelly and Michael and Two and a Half Men. Interestingly enough, many Chicago natives are completely unaware of the existence of WGN America as it does not air in the Chicago area. -- Submitted By: (Profzed) on October 22, 2012, 12:05 am

Red Dwarf - TV Shows
Had to go with Never Boned. Sure, there have been some "low moments". The entire 8th series and the 9th, "Back To Earth" were rather rocky. Shown in 3 parts, "Back To Earth" didn't run smoothly. However, when viewed straight through, unedited, it's much better. I'm certainly looking forward to Series 10 which is to be aired in the fall of 2012. My introduction to "Red Dwarf" was in fact the American pilot. Many fans have nothing but negative things to say about it. For myself, the American pilot was good enough that I sought out the original UK version. For those who may not know it, Jane Leeves who played Daphne on "Frasier" played the part of Red Dwarf's computer, Holly in the American pilot. Believe it or not, even though only her face was seen on a monitor screen, she was still incredibly sexy! An example of the humor in the American pilot: After being in suspended animation for one million years, Lister discovers the head of his android friend, Kryten, sitting on a shelf in a storage room. Kryten has been "conscious" the entire one million years. Lister asks Kryten how he's coped with sitting immobile on the shelf for a million years. Kryten nods toward a sign on the wall. The sign has only one word on it. Kryten answers, "Well sir, I've been reading that Exit sign." Horrifying and Hysterical! -- Submitted By: (Profzed) on July 31, 2012, 10:53 pm

Hawaii Five-O - TV Shows
Original "Hawaii Five-O" never boned. Jack Lord's McGarrett was the epitome of Cool! (And his hair did move - it often would blow just a tiny little bit in the Waikiki wind!) I still love to watch this show for the scenery and for McGarrett's detest of not only the criminals but also for the innocents who almost always did or said something the would get Steve's ire up! - - - - - As for the new "Hawaii Five-0"? It's still to be seen if it's going to bone any fish. It's gotten close. The one thing I definitely don't get about this new take on the show is that the producers/writers can't seem to figure out if it's a remake of the original or a continuation. The fact that the characters share the same exact names as the original signify that the show is a remake. However, in the 2nd season, the show brought back actor Ed Asner to reprise a role he played in the original show alongside Jack Lord. It's the same character who recently got out of prison for the crime Jack Lord's McGarrett arrested him for. But now it's the new McGarrett who is questioning him. ??? The character, named August March, doesn't question as to why McGarrett is now much younger and looks completely different. Also, the new Steve McGarrett is rebuilding his father's car - the exact same car that Jack Lord's Steve McGarrett drove on the original series. ??? The only explanation I can come up with is that the new "Hawaii Five-0" is taking place in the BIZARRO UNIVERSE! - - - - - I voted Never Boned on behalf of the original series. -- Submitted By: (Profzed) on July 31, 2012, 10:36 pm

Everybody loves Raymond - TV Shows
I can't understand how anyone can vote "boned from Day 1" for a show which they (I have to think most likely) have never watched. Nor can I understand why someone would write such negative comments about a show/actor/character, when they've never watched the show beyond the first episode. In my case, with "Everybody Loves Raymond", I never watched a single second of the show when it originally aired on CBS. I wasn't familiar with Ray Ramano's stand-up comedy and the main concept of the show didn't appeal to me. However, I would never make negative comments about either Ramano or the show because I wouldn't have had seen anything on which to base negative comments. It was only years after the show ended it's run that I was introduced to the series on cable television. Only then did I realize what a brilliantly written, produced and performed series it was. Yes, Ramano's character, Ray Barone is (as wife Debra would say) an idiot, but he always "learns" by the end of each episode. (And yes, he's usually back to Square One in the next episode. That's pretty much how all sitcoms work.) Every character on the show is portrayed by excellent actors. Every word of every script is perfect and true to life. These characters don't get along with one another every minute of every episode. That certainly reflects true life. Even still, it comes through clear that these characters love and cherish one another. Even the bickering grandma and grandpa. A true classic for it's time. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (Profzed) on July 31, 2012, 10:18 pm
