Any 19-year old that flashes his granny needs to be locked up! I wonder what the HELL kind of drug he was on to make him strip bare ass in front of his grandmother then force her to watch him "perform." Sick child, Beibs is one sick child. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on October 29, 2014, 4:38 pm

Good Times - TV Shows
Actually, people who live in government housing DO pay rent. It's usually based on how much income they have and their overall expenses. Food stamps are not blank checks but cover a percentage of a family's food budget, so yeah, a family in government housing and on food stamps still has to pay rent, buy food, clothes for the family and the other assorted expenses we all pay, including utility bills and transportation costs. Before you say they don't pay for public transportation, think again. Public buses are not free and the costs can add up quickly. On average, the one-way fair is 2 dollars. Take the bus to your job and back five days a week and that adds up to 80 dollars a month. If both mom and dad use the bus, it's 160 dollars a month. That's a big chunk of money for poor people. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on October 6, 2014, 11:06 am

Sons of Tucson - TV Shows
Finally, someone remembered this show! Fox did an all out publicity campaign and expected an instant mega-hit and when they didn't get, they cancelled it, after 4 freakin' episodes, come on! Amazingly the ratings weren't half bad. There are plenty of shows that get renewed with numbers a lot lower but Fox wanted another Malcolm in the Middle. They hired lots of MITM alumni including directors and producers Todd Holland and Peter Lauer, writers Michael Glouberman, Matthew Carlson, and Andy Bobrow and producer Justin Berfield who played Reese in MITM. It was a funny show and would have been a hit if allowed to live. I don't know why Fox even bothers, sometimes. If any of the Tucson cast and crew ever see this, good work, guys! You were robbed! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on October 3, 2014, 1:14 pm

3rd Rock from the Sun - TV Shows
I loved this show! Tommy and Dick were amazing and super funny together as the oddest father and son team ever on TV (I know, Tommy wasn't really Dick's son but they pretended he was while on Earth). I agree that a little French Stewart goes a long way and I hated his character. My only other criticism is it stayed on the air too long. The whole premise was the group was on a very temporary assignment to investigate Earthlings. It would have been perfect if they ended it after 3 seasons when it was still fresh and funny. I know that's not how TV works, just saying. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 23, 2014, 9:28 am

2 Broke Girls - TV Shows
I seriously like the two girls, Max and Caroline, and Garrett Morris is awesome as the pot smoking cashier. BUT the writing is awful and full of sophomoric racial, sexist, and dirty jokes. They had a really good thing going when they introduced Deke as Max's sex buddy, he was really funny and charming but they dumped his character. I only occasionally watch it now, it still has huge potential, all they need are some good writers. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 23, 2014, 9:21 am

Flo (Progressive Insurance) - TV Shows
OMG thank you thedude19766! I thought it was just me that hates that creepy Flo! I told my buddy a hated her when one of her commercials came on and he said I was crazy, said she is hot, mega-hot! YUCK! Creepy, creepy, creepy character. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 23, 2014, 9:06 am

Raising Hope - TV Shows
One of the most under-rated shows, EVER! Whoever cast Garrett Dillahunt and Martha Plimpton as mom and dad was a twisted genius. Garrett was known as an amazing serious actor who almost always played a sick, deranged, and evil bad guy or lunatic. Martha was the queen of off-the-wall indie films and basically was type cast as a flake, loon, or other odd ball. Put them together in a weird sitcom and TV history ensues. If that wasn't enough, add in the hysterically funny Cloris Leachman as Ma-Ma and the clueless (and cute) Lucas Neff as Jimmy and you have an excellent, epic show! I truly believe this show was a satire of TV sitcoms and the producers were probably stunned when it became a hit. I have no idea what goes through the brains (ha ha) of TV execs. The show had good solid ratings for 3 seasons and only tanked when Fox moved it into the death slot of early Friday evening. If they had left it on late Tuesdays it would still be raking in good numbers. Did they move it back to its original slot? Nooooo, the cheese heads cancelled it! Oh well! It was awesome while it lasted. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 23, 2014, 8:52 am

Moral Orel - TV Shows
There is a local Christian TV station that still shows those ancient Davey and Goliath episodes. My buddy and me started watching them while partaking of a certain herb and found them hysterical. Then we saw Moral Orel and realized we weren't the only stoners around that found Davey and Goliath to be totally awesome. Art Clokey, the hip genius who created Gumby also made D&G and filled the stories with twisted little jokes, like one episode when Davey was playing football with some boys and one of them told Davey to bend over. The scene showed the older boy pressing against Davey's rear end and grunting. Only after several seconds could you see the football and Davey was supposed to hike it. Hysterical! The talking dog had all the smarts and Davey was a complete dumbass. I think Moral Orel IS Davey and Goliath the way Art Clokey really wanted to make it. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 23, 2014, 8:35 am

Frasier - TV Shows
The early episodes were great, before Daphne went bonkers and Niles was still trying to deal with his unrequited love for her. Very funny writing and I agree, Frasier was a horrible person and was just waiting for the episode when Eddie pushed him out the window of the big fancy apartment of his! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:59 pm

Nurse Jackie - TV Shows
Good show. I don't know why but I love the character of Jackie, even though she cheated on her AWESOME husband, pretty much threw away her kids, steals, lies, cheats, and does anything she has to do to get her drugs. I know it sounds horrible but it really is a good show, very funny sometimes and heart breaking the next. Season before last she bonded with a teen age boy in rehab and it looked like they were helping each other stay sober, then the boy OD'd and died and Jackie went back to using. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:54 pm

Flipper - TV Shows
God what a weird show. You had a pair of teenage boys who apparently didn't own any clothes but had plenty of expensive scuba gear, a really handsome park ranger dad who didn't really seem interested in all of the women constantly throwing themselves at him, and a big grey aquatic mammal, played by Flipper, who had several IQ points more than the rest of the cast put together! Typical plot: one of the boys would do something incredibly stupid and get trapped underwater, the other boy and the dad would immediately go off in the wrong direction looking for him, and Flipper would save the day! The only other TV animal this smart was Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, who fly helicopters. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:42 pm

All Creatures Great and Small - TV Shows
I thought this show was stuffy until Tristan showed up! What a big lovable goof! It was heart warming all the way through and showed how much people expected out of vets in those days! Even if they knew they would never be paid, they never turned down an animal in need of their care. I was delighted when I found out James Heriot was a real person and the TV show was based on his writings. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:34 pm

Grounded for Life - TV Shows
I don't know what was weirder, the show or the backstage shenanigans. Jake Burbage, who played the youngest boy, Henry, had a stage mother from hell. She constantly attacked the producers and writers for not making her son the breakout star which she was convinced was his destiny. The more she complained, the more they cut Henry's parts until they totally wrote him out of the entire final season! No explanation, just no Henry. It was like he never existed. Weird way to go with that instead of killing him off (sorta heavy to kill a child in a sit-com) or replacing him with another actor. Aside form that the show was actually pretty good, the clueless boy next door Brad (Bret Harrison) and Lily, the flaming red-hot sex kitten daughter were hysterical together. Donal Logue and Megan Pryce were good, too. Very believable modern day Irish Catholic couple in over their heads. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:23 pm

Deadwood - TV Shows
Awesome show and awesome cast! Ian McShane and Timothy Oliphant were incredible as foes. A lot of people were freaked out by the language but the show was set in the Old West and the town was populated by drunks, thieves, murderers, and whores! It was a treat to see what a town like Deadwood actually looked and sounded like back in the 1800s. It wasn't squeaky clean, people, it was dirty and nasty. I get a kick out if seeing an old western TV show and the bad guys say things like lily-livered varmint, and gosh danggit! It could be really sad, too, like when the Marshall's adopted son was killed in the street. Didn't see that one coming! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:03 pm

Whitest Kids U' Know, The - TV Shows
Ok, this is seriously funny stuff! My favorite skit was when these bored young dudes were hanging out around the office break room and one of them said something lame and another one started the, ummm self-pleasuring pantomime gesture, which his friends all found hysterical but he kept doing it, and doing it until finally he "finished." The other guys were horrified and said, "Dude! Don't finish, god! That's gross!" I laughed myself sick. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:50 pm

Family Guy - TV Shows
Dear Seth McFalane, please retire and take Peter with you. On the way, drop Brian off at the pound, deliver Stewie to the hospital for criminally insane children, abandon Meg at the bus station, and push Chris off a bridge. You can let Lois have the house, maybe she will find a decent family to live in it. Oh, and please burn every last copy of every Conway Twitty song ever recorded. Seriously, this show was funny a long, long, long time ago but it has jumped the bone so many times I don't know where to start. How about with Stewie? Is he gay or straight? Please figure it out and get back to us. One episode he's hittin' on all the boys, the next he's hittin' on all the girls. And why the hell does a baby have a sexual identity crisis anyway? I really love my big flat screen but I came close to putting an axe through it when you introduced Vinny. My god man, have you no shame? And please, no more musical production numbers, ever! I saw an interview and you said you were proud that you had every 15-year old boy in the country dancing and singing Shipoopi. You really are deluded. Or evil. I haven't decided which. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:29 pm

Leave It To Beaver - TV Shows
This actually passed for good TV back in the day? Wow. Unrealistic, sappy, dopey, very white and this town they lived in, Mayfield, was it in the Twilight Zone? Where are all the ethnic people? Where are the poor people? The old man was always reading the paper and watching the news but everything was all Skittles and Care Bears! Where was the Cold War? The McCarthy Hearings? Race riots? It's not natural for brothers to get along like Wally and the Beav. I grew up in the same room as my older brother and not a week went by that we weren't trying to kill each other! We would occasionally have fun but our main pastime was plotting each other's murder. Now that's a realistic pair of brothers! Aside from the unreality of the show, the writing was awful. Who cares if a 6-year old makes friends with a fireman? I really don't understand those people who claim this is the best TV had to offer back in the Not So Golden Age of TV! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:06 pm

Star Trek: The Animated Series - TV Shows
Insanely good show! I never knew it existed until one of the cable channels started showing the episodes. I thought, "Star Trek cartoons? Seriously?" I watched an episode and was blown away because they introduced the K'Zin, a race of intelligent cats created by the most awesomest sci-fi writer ever, Larry Niven! I thought maybe they were just ripping him off but sure enough there he was in the credits, written by Larry Niven! Turns out he was a regular writer for the show, amazing! They did several of his most famous stories, like The Slaver Weapon. After that I was hooked and almost cried when I had seen all of the episodes. I feel sorry for kids today not having a truly intelligent animated show to call their own! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 2:37 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
The first season was a lot more gritty and I LOVED it when Riker called out Picard for doing something stupid. "Number One, take the com, I'm going to the surface." "No, Captain. I can't allow that, it is my job to protect you, this mission is far to dangerous." Then Picard would pout and go drink Earl Grey, hot while Riker got all the glory! Wesley was OK as a kid but when they started giving him real jobs and listening to his advice, TNG totally boned! Best line ever was from Guinan to Wesley when he spouted off about her personal business. "You're just a kid!" Nice way to tell him to STFU and go play with his dolls. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 2:28 pm

Pawn Stars - TV Shows
It seems Big Hoss is taking over the show. This season he is doing most of the negotiating and Rick only shows up to do a quick deal every now and then. Too bad, because "Big Hoss" Cory Harrison is the most unlikable, disagreeable, and obnoxious person on TV. Don't the producers notice people generally hate him? They have also made Chum into a cartoon character buffoon and the Old Man into a ghost with a token 10 seconds of air time per episode. Please! Either cancel this thing or bring Rick back as the Main Man! Rick totally rocks! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 28, 2014, 9:37 am
