Northern Exposure - TV Shows
Best things about this show: The moose in the opening credits, Ed, the weirdo Native American boy, Maurice Minnifield, the eccentric ex-astronaut, Chris in the Morning (the town's DJ), Marilyn, the Native American nurse at the clinic, John Cullum as the awesome Holling (town barkeep with a very mysterious past). Wonderful cast and great writing! The worst thing about this show: Rob Morrow as the whiny emo-brat boy doctor Joel! I kept hoping he would get eaten by a bear! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 28, 2014, 9:26 am

Munsters Today, The - TV Shows
OMG! I did not that this show even existed. I eagerly watched an episode on HULU because of the cast, Lee Meriwether as Lily and Jason Marsden who played Eddie. I turned off the first episode after a few minutes, it was THAT bad, and skipped ahead several episodes. It was even worse. How this thing stayed on the air for 72 episodes is a real mystery. The guy who played Herman was so miscast it was pathetic and although Lee Meriwether has done some pretty good work, her Lily was horrible. The only decent acting came from Jason Marsden. His Eddie was funny and clever but they never gave him enough to do. Whenever he did something interesting, it was "go outside and play, Eddie!" And that would be the last you saw him in that episode. I think his average screen time was under two minutes per episode, sometimes he only got 30 seconds. As soon as The Munsters Today was cancelled, Jason went on to play the mystery teen, Dash X in Eerie, Indiana. A phenomenal role that really let him stretch out as an actor. Sadly, that show only had 19 episodes while The Munsters Today today went on for 72! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 28, 2014, 9:16 am

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
This show was clever and funny for about 2 seasons, after that it was awful and should have been taken off the air. The relationship between Cory and Shawn was the heart and soul of the show. Shawn had a very rough impoverished family life but remained a sweet kid. Cory didn't treat him differently because of it but ached inside for all of Shawn's pain. Then came Topanga, perhaps the most annoying girl on the planet. She was completely jealous of Shawn and was always trying to get Cory to stay away from him. It was at this point the show totally boned. It was no longer sweet, or funny for that matter, just a mindless sit-com with "girls are smarter than boys" plot devices. Mr. Feeny was a stalker and would have been arrested in real life. I mean even during the first season when Cory was 12, Feeny would show up at his house to bring him his homework and "check up on him." Creepy. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 28, 2014, 8:43 am

Growing Pains - TV Shows
Ok, this was one weird show! One of the main characters was a boy named Boner! Hmmm. Can't imagine why a teenage boy would get a nickname of Boner! If that wasn't weird enuff, I saw an episode where Kirk Cameron puts his 11 year old brother over his knee wearing just a pair of tightey whiteys and spanks him. The brother thinks it's funny as hell and laughs hysterically, obviously enjoying it and the parents walk in and say "We don't even want to know what is going on." Weird. I have a hard time deciding who the biggest douchebag was, Alan Thicke or Kirk Cameron. Wait a minute, it's Kirk Cameron, errr I mean Bible Man! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 25, 2014, 10:23 am

Rifleman, The - TV Shows
I know I'll catch hell for this but here goes. This is a terrible, awful, sick show! I watched several episodes on MeTV just to be sure, and yep, it is very bad. Here's a typical episode: Pa McCain (Chuck Connors)has a bonding moment with his cute little boy (Johnny Crawford). A bad guy shows up and Pa shoots him 632 times at point blank range in front of his son with that Winchester repeating rifle of his and everyone smiles and says what a great man Pa is and he and the kid hug and ride off into the sunset. So, he is teaching his son to murder his way out of a hard situation. Some of the "bad guys" Pa blew away were NOT all that bad, some of them just pissed him off. The acting is terrible, especially Chuck Connors, my god he is wooden as hell. I know this was made about a hundred years ago but really, it sucks. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 25, 2014, 10:12 am

Freaks and Geeks - TV Shows
Wow, just wow! I heard some talk that F&G was a pretty good show but wow, it is awesome! A friend and me watched the entire series (sadly not that many episodes)and we were both blown away! The main girl character was incredible, I wonder whatever happened to her? And the two sets of boys, the older freaks played by James Franco and Seth Rogan and the younger geeks, played by John Francis Dailey (Sweets on Bones) and his buddies, they were just amazing! I actually cried a couple of times, once when the geekiest geek boy, Haverchuk, almost died because of a stupid prank, and once when Lindsay runs over a kid's dog when she was high, I felt so awful for her. Incredible show, a must, must, must watch! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 25, 2014, 10:03 am

Law and Order SVU - TV Shows
Benson and Stabler rocked but this thing was on the air for too many years! In its prime, this was the best of the Law and Order series of shows. However, it went from being a fantastic drama to a vehicle for titillation. There were far to many pedophile cases and most of the other victims of sex abuse were gorgeous women (and some men, haha!). They went into lingering detail about the crimes in a way I can only describe as fan service. One show had a guy raping his younger brother. Instead of just saying he abused his brother, they went into lurid detail about how the younger guy was seduced and what it felt like while his brother abused him, my god! Did we really have to know these details? -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 3, 2014, 9:09 am

Dead Like Me - TV Shows
Amazing show that was killed too soon by the always shortsighted Showtime. One of the best things about DLM was the way they portrayed the Reapers. At first you thought they were chosen by fate randomly but as you got to know the characters, you realized every one of them was deeply flawed. It's my theory that they were paying off some cosmic debt and were being prevented from moving on until the debt was satisfied. Take Rube, the saintly father figure and leader of the Reapers. It was revealed that he was shot to death while robbing a bank and left a wife and small child behind to fend for themselves. Mason was a junkie in life who stole and committed various crimes to support his habit and died of an overdose. Daisy was a slut who used men to advance her acting career. We don't really know what George's major flaw was, except that she was unbelievably selfish and lazy, but I believe there was more to her than that. Too bad we will never know, thanks Showtime! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 3, 2014, 9:00 am

Tosh.0 - TV Shows
I agree that Mr. O. is disgusting. He's a foul-mouthed, dirty-minded jackass with the maturity of a 6-year old. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 20, 2014, 11:45 am

Blossom - TV Shows
As I recall, a running joke was that Joey used to run around without pants or undies when he was little, just a shirt. When he got into trouble he would say he was dressed just like Donald Duck, to which his dad would reply, "Joey, Donald Duck has feathers!" Sometimes when Joey did something stupid as a teen, his dad or older brother would would say, "It's Donald Dick all over again!" I agree it wasn't the best sitcom but it was pleasant to watch and Blossom and Six were pretty adorable. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 20, 2014, 11:42 am

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - TV Shows
Cartooner, if, as you say, the Boo Boo family "donates most (if not all) of their money" is true, it is only further proof they are idiots. They live in squalor and they give away millions? Charity begins at home, especially when you have children to provide for and raise. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 20, 2014, 11:34 am

Bryan Cranston - Celebrities
Bryan rocks! Congrats to him on his latest triumph, the Tony Award for Best Dramatic Actor on Broadway! I agree that his Malcolm in the Middle days were sad, so were his recurring roles in Seinfeld and King of Queens and a dozen other bit comedic parts. There are early signs of his greatness, however. Check out the X-Files episode "Drive," it is a very serious dramatic role. His deranged character kidnaps Mulder in a desperate attempt to get help for his illness. Also, Bryan was brilliant in the 1990's mini-series "From the Earth to the Moon," in which he played Buzz Aldrin, a weird astronaut (second man on the moon after Armstrong) who was overly religious and had a huge chip on his shoulder. Bryan had a horrible childhood, both his parents were drunks and abandoned him and his younger brother and they were shipped off to an abusive grandfather. Bryan overcame it all, avoided booze and drugs, and concentrated on his career. Well done, Mr. Cranston, well done! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 14, 2014, 6:55 am

Red Dwarf - TV Shows
I loved this show because: 1. It showed space like it really is, EMPTY! I mean the ship traveled for 30,000 years without meeting another ship, not like Star Trek and the like who bump into aliens every 3 seconds! 2. It showed what humans are really like, decent, scared, and lonely. and 3. It had weird British humor! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:33 pm

Munsters, The - TV Shows
The Adams Family was way cooler! It's like comparing Shakespeare to Adult Swim. Adams Family was classy, intellectual, and very funny. Munsters was crass, lowest common denominator stupid. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:28 pm

Swamp People - TV Shows
From what I can tell after watching an episode (sixty minutes of my life I'll never get back), this is a show about toothless in-bred idiots who think it's fun to kill things. Or did I miss something? To each his own, I know the show has a lot of fans. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:23 pm

My Name is Earl - TV Shows
I loved this show! Say what you will about ignorant unwashed white trash trailer rats, but Earl and his crew were downright funny. I also thought it was sweet the way Earl looked after his kid brother who was obviously "a little slow" and incapable of caring for himself. I also liked the way he still cared for his ex-wife although she was a scheming manipulative scum bucket thief and whore. Jason Lee and Jaimie Pressly were hysterical together. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:14 pm

House - TV Shows
I miss House! He was such a witty guy and was never afraid to unleash his snark on brain dead idiots who crossed his path. My favorite was from an episode where House was forced to do his hated clinic hours. A college kid was his patient and he was obviously too embarrassed to tell House what the problem was, he finally blurted out that he had something stuck in his rectum. Highly amused, House pulled out an MP3 player and said, "Are you just a really big music fan or is it the long cylindrical shape that appealed to you?" I fell off the couch laughing. Bye Dr. House, may your snark go on forever! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:02 pm

Two and a Half Men - TV Shows
I heard they are giving up and are only doing one more season, thank god! It used to be 'don't miss' TV for me but if I miss it now, no big deal. The Ashton Kutcher episodes I have seen were awful and filthy. When Charlie was around the sexual situations were funny and classy, now it seems the show is just one big dirty joke. A recent episode revolved around Alan getting a tick on his junk and he went around making everyone look at his swollen balls, it was repulsive. They should have stopped making these when Jake hit 16, it would have been remembered as a classy, funny show but now it's legacy is one of vile toilet humor and raunchy jokes. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 11:50 am

American Pickers - TV Shows
Frank is awesome! Mike is annoying sometimes but he comes off as being pretty sincere about his work and he no doubt is a smart guy to build such a successful business. BUT the most awesomest person is of course Danielle! Come on, a 30-somethingish tattooed ex-roller derby queen who's smart, hot, and funny, who can not like that? Pretty good show, I give it a solid B. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 11:07 am

Big Bang Theory - TV Shows
Great show. I understand that some people just don't get it but that's ok, you either get the show and love it or totally miss the comedy and hate it. Sheldon and the boys have made it cool to be a science nerd again! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 11:02 am
