Wings - TV Shows
I never got the hype over this. It seemed a passable thing to watch once in a while but no great shakes to seek out. Oh, and I disliked how we were supposed to root for the snotty kid bro while jeer at the rival owner merely because the rival owner was fat and older. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 30, 2014, 1:46 pm

2010s - Random Topics
While there have been some incredible technological innovations in this decade, IMO it's not been without its problems. One thing I dislike a great deal is how no one is allowed to simply have quirks or foibles, they must have 'syndromes' which 'require' drugs and there are huge drives to push as many folks as possible to get hooked on them even having advertizements that tout said drugs as invaluable keys to getting the most out of life [even with the voiceovers spelling out that the side effects are often WORSE than what the drugs claim to cure]. How can we expect youth to want to be clean and sober when the message of 'you're doomed to be a miserable mess unless you get drugs to cure ALL your woes' get pushed down everyone's throats? Not only has Jefferson Airplane's 'White Rabbit' come to fruition but that movie "Road to Wellville" which appeared to satire the turn of the previous century's obsession with quack cures but, now appears to satirize OUR OWN. If there's anyone left in 50 years, they're wonder what was this decade THINKING via this philosophy! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 30, 2014, 1:32 pm

Olympic Games - Random Topics
Does anyone else find it incredible to think that yesterday [February 12,2014] it was 50F [10 Celcius] in Sochi and they were worried about all that ice and snow melting during athletic competitions while Atlanta and a good part of the US Southeast got pummeled by a crippling ice storm? Russia being warmer than Georgia,USA who'd have thunk it! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2014, 12:33 pm

Capital One - Random Topics
Mythigator, I agree that they've been long since worn out their welcome [as has Progressive's Flo] but at least they seem to no longer be running Alec Baldwin ones anymore so there's hope that it won't be too long before get the message that most folks are sick of the Vikings. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2014, 12:20 pm

Your Show Of Shows (The Sid Caesar Show) - TV Shows
On February 12, 2014, Sid Caesar died at age 91 and I know I've already discussed a good part of his legacy in the post below but I thought it would fitting to add something else worth noting. Anyone here recall the scene in "Blazing Saddles" in which this tough hombre punched out a HORSE? It may have seemed a physical impossibility for a person to be able to do that but it was based on an actual incident in which Sid Caesar himself punched out a horse on a dude ranch after it had gotten too jittery for his wife to ride! R.I.P. Mr. Caesar. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2014, 12:15 pm

Deadliest Catch - TV Shows
Has there been anything fun on the show since Phil Harris's death? Sad to say,IMO he was really the only reason to keep watching otherwise it was just ice,storms and arguments. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 23, 2014, 10:12 am

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
Actually, DolFan, What I believe would be even MORE effective would be a punch to the solar plexus- namely a verbal one by his MOTHER who needs to tell him "I didn't raise you to be like that. You're BETTER than that and I'm THROUGH making excuses for you. Shape up so I can be proud of you again!" Oh, and as somewhat who once worked in the food industry, I especially disliked what he did to that kitchen bucket because , hello, virtually every hotel kitchen in the developed world has its own bathroom so he could have gone there AND, at best, that means some already overworked kitchen worker had to dump, rinse out and sanitize that bucket- or at worse, it didn't get noticed and the contents got MOPPED all over the floor. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 23, 2014, 9:59 am

Brenda Lee - Celebrities
She doesn't give concerts as frequently as before but if one is lucky enough to have the opportunity to see her perform live, one should take it, IMO. I saw her recently in my city and, true, she didn't use such gimmicks as foam fingers or taking off clothes but what she DID do was sing phenomenally [actually sounded better than how I'd heard her in later years], and truly appreciated the audience going so far as to sincerely thank us for letting her sing her entire life! Even the teens dragged to see her couldn't help but be impressed by her very energetic, sincere, emotive performance. Happy Birthday Miss Brenda [AKA Mrs. Shacklett]! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 11, 2013, 6:41 pm

Breaking Bad - TV Shows
sharp, I said to each their own re show choices and,speaking strictly for myself, I still see no virtue to this show [and I'm NOT the only one who dislikes it]. However; it deserves to be noted that there were folks who paid to watch a fake funeral online of the lead character that resulted in monies being donated to homeless families. I love it when folks do the right thing for the wrong reasons! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 26, 2013, 10:42 am

I still like the selection but hate that so often one has to endure boring 'ad' videos before one can watch the one wanted to see. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 26, 2013, 10:36 am

Another World - TV Shows
Yeah, I'm one of the kids who came across this as a small child and, seeing the globe and title, thought it would be cool- only to get bored with it when realizing that it was NOT a sci-fi show set on another planet. LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 26, 2013, 10:35 am

Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, The - TV Shows
I used to laugh in the opening credits when Grizzly was seen opening a gate at the edge of the wilderness and walking through- a gate that was completely unattached to any fence or wall. Who built a gate without a fence or wall and why- and why would Grizzly not just walk around it? LOL I also liked Denver Pyle's banter and actually thought hearing his griping about frontier life was more entertaining than Grizzly's seeming obliviousness to any hardship . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 26, 2013, 10:29 am

Burns and Allen Show, The - TV Shows
Hateol, Thanks for your post on this show. My parents couldn't get enough of this duo so I couldn't wait to see it for myself when it reran on CBN in the 1980's. Gracie ruled with her illogical logic and George's deadpan delivery having to deal with all the craziness but NEVER losing his temper no matter how frustrated and confused he got was classic. It's hard to believe now but when Gracie retired then died a few years later, there was serious doubt that George would have any kind of career on his own but to his credit he forged ahead quite well. BTW, not only were they excellent verbal comedians but they were also quite skilled dancers. Check out' Damsel in Distress' [1937] when the two of them danced WITH Fred Astaire. Not easy to turn a dance between a male/female duo into one for a two men/one woman trio but they did it flawlessly and completely tastefully. Last of all, although George admitted [at her funeral] that he wasn't always a 'true husband' and definitely had an eye for pretty girls to the end, I think it was cool that when he died, not only was he buried with her but he had arranged for the epitaph to read simply 'Together Again'. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 26, 2013, 10:23 am

Susan G Komen Foundation - Random Topics
I wonder if they're aware that there ARE breast cancer survivors who HATE the color pink and get turned off by the organization solely due to its insistence of shoving that color down everyone's throat- regardless of what other good works it may do. I know because I have a close family member who does all she can to avoid the organization for that very reason. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 1, 2013, 3:44 pm

American Restoration - TV Shows
Yeah, I used to love how Rick would explain the history and significance of the individual objects his customers would bring him, then they'd demonstrate HOW to restore them in a rather detailed basis but now it's become a sitcom wannabee revolving around the blended family with virtually nothing about the actual restorations depicted. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 1, 2013, 3:31 pm

Beavis and Butthead - TV Shows
Anyone else on this site feel kinda puzzled and a tiny bit old that some folks consider the 1990's when this show took place NOT to be 'modern times'? LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 1, 2013, 3:24 pm

Breaking Bad - TV Shows
kingbk, You make some interesting points. Speaking strictly for myself,though, by the same logic, I know castor oil is risky to consume but I have no interest in watching someone else chug it down then have their britches soiled. This is one show I'm not sorry to have missed while working. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 1, 2013, 3:18 pm

Breaking Bad - TV Shows
I've never watched it and the comments here make me even less interested in it because I do not want to see a show that glorifies something that is on record for having ruined everything it touches [producers,consumers, families, the environment]. What next -a show glorifying toxic waste dumpers? To each their own re show choices but I can't in good conscience watch this or pretend there's anything redeeming about the subject matter. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 28, 2013, 12:27 pm

Sinead O'Conner - Music Groups
PYLrulz, Good point. The picture rip DID seem a rather childish and petulant act that took away from being able to focus on her actual talent. Sad to say, I actually think she DOES have a good voice [despite her needlessly screeching like a banshee on too many occasions] but, regardless of her not being in the public glare so much, she SURE needs to find her peace. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 28, 2013, 12:16 pm
