Perfect Strangers - TV Shows
Balki was only mildly entertaining for about two minutes then became supremely annoying to me . Looking back, I understand why: because Balki was a lite version of the late Andy Kaufman's Latka [who himself was best a funny background character for roughly five minutes at a time]. Did the producers and Bronson Pinchot seriously think they'd slack the public's thirst for Andy Kaufman with . . . that?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 8, 2011, 8:02 am

Patti LaBelle - Music Groups
It sounds as though Miss LaBelle could USE a 'New Attitude'! Yeesh! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 8, 2011, 7:58 am

Duck Factory, The - TV Shows
Not a bad premise [and interesting to see a young Jim Carrey REALLY get into cartooning with the other characters]. Yet, it just didn't wash- primarily because with everyone working together to save this floundering cartoon studio, there were no antagonists beyond the wolf a the door. Maybe folks weren't ready to get nostalgic about real cartoons at this point. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 7, 2011, 12:48 pm

Supergirl - Movie Series
How is a movie that's even LESS fondly remembered by Supe fans than "Superman Three" considered a 'series'? I hope Helen Slater's life has improved since this debacle. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 7, 2011, 12:30 pm

Louisiana - Random Topics
Aw come on, Soggy+Stephanie, these folks are having to struggle with some major flooding [in no small part due to their topography]. Can't we cut them a little slack at this time? For me, it has a fascinating culture that has no parallels anywhere else in the US or the Caribean which has combined virtually every imaginable element from ALL the above societies [and a shout out to Soggy for his kudos of Cajun cuisine- though that's far from the only one]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 5, 2011, 4:23 pm

Mood Rings - Random Topics
I don't think so, Robert. But I thought someone who actually remembers them when they were popular needed to say something! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 5, 2011, 4:15 pm

Elmo - Random Topics
Soggy, If memory serves me correctly, Grover doesn't wear a jockstrap. Hence, I think a more apt analogy would be to say that Elmo isn't worthy to sweep Cookie Monster's cookie crumbs off the counter! Anyone else with me? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 5, 2011, 4:12 pm

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - TV Shows
I loved this show as a kid and considered it a highlight of Saturday morning cartoons. However; even back then I used to wonder about the laugh/applause tracks. I mean, did they REALLY think that they'd think kids at home would imagine a group of people who had nothing better to do than to attend a CARTOON SHOW during which they could instantly laugh and applaud? Yeah, I know if Fat Albert could make a radiator and a pillow sound like an electric organ. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 4:02 pm

Mood Rings - Random Topics
Anyone else wonder what color a mood ring would have turned had it been placed on a pet rock? LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 3:57 pm

Pluto (Dwarf Planet) - Random Topics
Sorry, but I'll always consider a planet- even if it happened to march to its own drummer[ or weird orbit]. I remember how cool it felt for those 20 years or so when Neptune was FARTHER away from the sun than Pluto thanks to said orbit! Jeers to the solar system model kit makers who've quit putting Pluto as part of the system! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 3:56 pm

Peter Fonda - Celebrities
Soggy, Just to clarify for everyone else reading this who may not know of the family history, the World War II service record refers to HENRY Fonda not his son Peter! BTW, one my grandmothers happened to run into Henry Fonda in Macy's back in the early 1960's and calmly told him that she'd always liked his acting and he politely thanked her with a smile[ no autograph was sought or given here]. Would it be that manners such as those had been passed down to the next generation! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 3:45 pm

Having all calls go to voicemail AND working the 2nd shift has drastically cut down on those calls for me! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 3, 2011, 12:33 pm

Jeepers Creepers (2001) - Movie Series
Bravo, Robert! TOTALLY agree! Although, I have to admit that patronizing this particular series is a non-issue for me due to having no interest whatsoever in that genre. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 3, 2011, 12:31 pm

Peter Fonda - Celebrities
Excuse me everyone but when did HENRY Fonda do anything that could have been considered traitorous? He was one of the outstanding performers of his generation who may not have been the ideal father to his offspring but I don't recall Henry being less than a loyal US American. It's interesting to note that he and James Stewart stayed staunch friends to the very end despite having differing political views. Can anyone imagine Jimmy Stewart considering him a friend if HE thought Henry was a traitor? I don't think so. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 3, 2011, 12:29 pm

Lamisil - Random Topics
I think whoever pitched[and bought] the fungus and muccus 'character' ideas ARE fungal snots. Just gross- and not in an entertaining or clever way. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 29, 2011, 8:51 pm

Lost in Space - TV Shows
tsbrownie, Truth be told that ep was TYPICAL rather than an anomaly. Although, I looked it up and found out that the head 'biker' was none other than Daniel J. Travanti[ Lt. Frank Furillo on "Hill Street Blues"].On a positive note, I also discovered that Mark Goddard quit acting a few years back to further his education and currently teaches special education. Good for him. c Too many actors go to obscurity and whine about no longer being contenders but do little if anything to help those in true need. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 29, 2011, 8:49 pm

Howard Stern - Celebrities
I agree, Soggy. I can recall him saying in an interview he was 'angry' that his satellite show didn't get the EXACT number of viewers as the over-the-air show. Not disappointed, not unhappy but 'angry'- despite him making megamillions regardless. Truth be told, his show never was something I went out of my way to see.Still, I'm glad he DID do that for those shell-shocked by 9/11 in the immediate aftermath (I have kin who were close enough to WITNESS the Towers going down). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 29, 2011, 8:44 pm

Outsourced - TV Shows
Soggy, I'd totally agree with you about this being an unfunny concept- except for reasons I'll never understand there IS an audience who like Donald Trump's 'You're fired'. I guess those viewers don't have to work nor know anyone who does. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 29, 2011, 8:40 pm
