Blind Melon - Music Groups
Good question, JayD. And can anyone else unrelated to the band recall any song of theirs besides the one involving the Bee Girl? Could they be taking encouragement from Question Mark and the Mysterians who've managed to dine on '96 Tears' alone for the last 45 years[!]? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 15, 2012, 1:32 pm

JumptheShark.com - Websites
Has anyone been able to access the Vintage Site via the Wayback Machine these last few months? It seems even THAT has been denied the fans. Oh, and if it turned out that TV GUIDE had a Mama Carlson MO re the site purchase, it wouldn't come as a total surprise to me! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 15, 2012, 1:22 pm

Van Halen - Music Groups
kingbk, I heard it,too, and was somewhat disappointed. It sounded as though it could have been recorded in the early 1980's. I'm VERY nostalgic for 1980's music but one of the most appealing aspects of Van Halen was how INNOVATIVE they were during their prime combining many genres and styles to get the perfect 'storm' - and now they seem to have been stuck in the same safe[profitable] rut for 25 years. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 14, 2012, 4:47 pm

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
OK, (), I didn't say that Mel Blanc voiced Barney in every single episode. However; for a time after his horrible accident, he DID voice Barney flat on his back from a hospital bed. I'd think with a moniker like (), you'd be more admiring of the late Mr. Blanc's efforts! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 14, 2012, 4:40 pm

Topper - TV Shows
hbrennan, Thanks for bringing this one up! I watched this back in the early 1980's on [I think]CBN cable network and had a BLAST! The great irony of this was that the middleaged Topper had virtually nothing to live for before this fetching ghostly couple 'adopted' him. I mean he was stuck in a boring job and had to tolerate being married to a whiny pill named Henrietta- even going so far as turning away when he had to air kiss her[ no surprise they had no kids]. Then this young ghostly couple George and Marion came back to their old home and discovered that Topper needed help in learning how to appreciate LIFE and after Topper's initial attempts to 'evict' them, the three of them formed a different kind of family . No, Topper never quite got unstuffy but it was fun watching them try. Plus, it helped that the performers [Robert Sterling and Anne Jeffreys] were wed in Real Life and had some atomic chemistry similiar to the Arnazes in 'I Love Lucy' yet they never schemed against each other- just against those who tried to make life unpleasant for Topper . Oh, and it wasn't for nothing that Marion was termed 'the Ghostest with the Mostest'!LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 14, 2012, 4:37 pm

Newlywed Game, The - TV Shows
I wouldn't be surprised if they made those answer cards big enough so the newlyweds could hit each other over the head whenever they got mismatched answers-which seemed to be the alternate to kissing each other to audience applause when they got right ones. The thing seems tame in retrospect but I have to wonder how many of them stayed married more than a year after being on this show? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 5, 2012, 8:39 am

Zales Jewelers - Random Topics
Even if one elects to spend the equivilant of house downpayments on chunks of rocks, I can't imagine why one would do so at a national chain instead of a local establishment. It seems to me somewhat like paying hundreds of dollars for a Happy Meal instead of going to a five star restaurant. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 5, 2012, 8:23 am

Bob Saget - Celebrities
Friedrich, Even if one has no problems with others using profanity for entertainment purposes, the sad thing about Saget doing that in the radio interview was that he was doing it for the ostensible purpose of promoting one of his projects. In other words, there would have been X number of listeners who'd have otherwise not heard of/cared about said project who might have taken an interest in it had they been able to listen to said interview. However; due to him rendering the interview so devoid of non-profane content to make it unfit for broadcast, he somewhat sabotaged his earning potential- to say nothing of having wasted the deejay's and his own time! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 5, 2012, 8:09 am

Bob Saget - Celebrities
I know of a deejay who had to dump an entire interview with Saget because Saget peppered his responses with so many profanities that there would have been virtually nothing left to air after editting. Yeesh! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 2, 2012, 8:32 am

Baywatch Nights - TV Shows
John, I'm amazed you made it through even ONE full episode. Bottom line, Baywatch-clothed showed the Emperor's Clothes re the fact that lame dialogue, situations, etc. couldn't be ignored with the cast wearing clothes as these flaws could be ignored on the original via the cast wearing next to none. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 2, 2012, 8:25 am

Beatles, The (TV series) - TV Shows
John, I think it was OK as a time passer but nothing more. Still, I'd much rather have had Paul Frees do MORE Boris Badanov than sub for two Beatles. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 2, 2012, 8:20 am

Ally McBeal - TV Shows
This is one show that started out okay but got so weird that I'd like to forget ever happened altogether- and not just the computer dancing baby. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 27, 2011, 10:15 am

Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo, The - TV Shows
It didn't last long but what was surprising was that Akins and even Nell Carter [in her prime time debut] could actually have fairly good dramatic moments amongst the sitcomy fluff. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 27, 2011, 10:00 am

CSI Miami - TV Shows
Not a bad question, Bob NYC. The best answer I can come up with is that his voice is somewhat dramatic but, as shallow as this sounds, it somewhat is at odds with his appearance that seems more suitable to "Mad Magazine" than a dramatic character. If radio serials still existed, I could see him making a solid career doing that but it's been about half a century since that time. Oh well, even if we don't get it, I guess there are enough viewers who keep tuning in and he seems to have learned from his "NYPD Blue" dispute. Now why there needs to be more than one show covering the CSI franchise is something I don't understand either. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 27, 2011, 9:52 am

Stephanie, That does explain a bit. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 19, 2011, 8:54 am

3rd Rock from the Sun - TV Shows
VeritechRyan, Thanks for clearing that up! That makes perfect sense as to HOW the studio audience sounded so 'spontaneous'. Oh well. Still, I liked the show. It's OK not to like this show if one doesn't. To each their own. I feel the same about "Sex in the City"- never could stand it in spite of all the hype that went into it but I'll save why for THAT board. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2011, 12:36 pm

Clint Eastwood - Celebrities
Agree with you two! Clint- you've ALREADY got fame, a thriving directing career and a good amount of dinero in the bank so WHY trash yourself and your family this way?! What an AWFUL note to cap one's accomplishments! BOO! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2011, 12:31 pm

Laverne & Shirley in the Army - TV Shows
Thanks for clarifying that, JayD. Too bad the Army didn't turn the whole cast into its mainstay of Spam [the(barely)edible variety]- so we could have been spared this. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2011, 12:27 pm

If it turned out Stephanie had stock in this pageant, it wouldn't come as a total surprise to me. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 17, 2011, 11:01 am

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The - TV Shows
Anyone else wish that Arthur Dent would have found something to wear besides his pyjamas and robe? I could see being caught unawares when the planet exploded but I don't see why he couldn't have bartered/bought something else to wear instead of the pyjamas for several YEARS! Even if he bathed regularly, if that's all he ever wore, they'd have gotten rather funky in very short order. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2011, 12:33 pm
