Private Benjamin - TV Shows
I actually liked this one but got disappointed when Sgt. Lewis was increasingly shown to be as incompetent as the higher-ups she was having to fight. I liked the idea of ONE person trying to organize a bunch of slackers and layabouts into trying to remotely follow protocol despite a lack of real support from their own higher-ups but then when they made Sgt. Lewis more of a dolt and even hinted at a possible fling with HER superior, it just didn't wash. Of course, the show was over even though the producers didn't want to admit it when Eileen Brennan got badly injured and unable to play Sgt. Lewis any more. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:45 pm

Ernest movies - Movie Series
Friedrich, I can't say I loved (or even liked) the movies but you might want to tell your Shakespearean friend that the late Jim Varney was ALSO a Shakespearean performer before he did this series and was far deeper than the series let on. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:35 pm

Waiting For God - TV Shows
I liked Tom and Diana's carryings on keeping that nursing home rocking! It was good to see them prevail over the effecious Harvey Baines and his whiny assistant. Only problems where when they'd focus too much on Harvey or when Tom's trampy daughter-in-law would self-destruct bringing down whomever she could with her. Still, when the focus stayed on Tom and Diana and avoided the boring younger folks, it was hilarious! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:28 pm

Jenny McCarthy - Celebrities
I'll never forget my first impression of seeing her on MTV and thinking that with her looks, she was a young Grace Kelly reincarnated - until she opened her mouth and revelled in some of the tackiest, most juvenile crudity that would have put the Delta House to shame. As for the vaccine deal? I sympathize with her wanting to find answers re her son's autism and I think ALL parents SHOULD question every medicine their child is offered before the child takes it (as should all competent adults for themselves and any adults they may be caregiving for). However; I agree that it was a bit simplistic on her part to put the WHOLE blame on vaccines without considering other possible factors and it was somewhat sad that she seemed to tout herself as somewhat an expert despite having had no medical training or education. Oh, on a purely shallow note, it's interesting to consider that even in middle age Princess Grace remained a natural beauty to her tragic end while Miss McCarthy. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:21 pm

Fish - TV Shows
I liked Abe Vigoda and the late Florence Stanley as Detective Phil and Bernice Fish on "Barney Miller" but they somewhat ruined the characters by making them foster parents- especially since Fish never once seemed as though he'd EVER wanted to do that even after they got the troubled kids moved into their home. He seemed to just want a nice quiet retirement to himself but Bernice (and, for whatever reason, Barry Gordon's character) seemed intent on inflicting problems from the kids for him alone to solve. Why was this supposed to be funny again? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:58 pm

Dragnet - TV Shows
I agree,flech[what happened to ya?]! As much as I always liked watching detective shows to try to guess clues, this one simply was too boring to endure more than a few times. I mean, even Harry Morgan wasn't able to make HIS character tolerable- and that's saying something considering how he virtually had Colonel Potter do a 180 from the original concept! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:51 pm

Danny Thomas Show, The (Make Room For Daddy) - TV Shows
It was okay but I never got why after the previously widowed parents Danny and Kathy married each other, her daughter called him Daddy from Day One while his kids never stopped calling her Kathy (not Mom or any variation). I always thought that was rather lopsidedly disrepectful towards their new mother figure which even the Brady Bunch wouldn't have stood for. Of course, the later years with the showbiz (and singing) increasingly dominating the action- and one of the most awkward adolescences ever broadcast (Rusty's) made the show tough to watch towards the end (and I say this as someone who saw it on Nick at Nite back in the 80's NOT someone who'd followed it all 11 seasons when it was on). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:45 pm

Different World, A - TV Shows
I agree that the show actually improved when the sleepwalking Denise left (and even before she was gone, she had become a de facto background extra on what was supposed to be her OWN show).However; the last year would have been better simply not done. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:38 pm

Wave, The - Random Topics
Reminds me of those mass demonstrations in Maoist China and North Korea showing how much the citizens 'love' their leaders. Nuff said! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:32 pm

Morton Downey, Jr. - Celebrities
I can't say I agreed with everything he said but I will always admire the fact that he ADMITTED cigarettes were what doomed him and strongly urged young folks not to start(as did Yul Brynner) when he could have kept the denial to the end- oblivious to others' following the coffin nail worshipping example. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2010, 9:49 am

Adventures of Superman - TV Shows
True, jimdcarter- unless one is Elvis or Michael Jackson! However; it must be stated that George Reeves still questionable sudden gunshot death happened several years after the syndicated series ended. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2010, 9:36 am

Ropers, The - TV Shows
Mythigator, Way back in the late 1950's, during the last days of "I Love Lucy", the Arnazes and CBS wanted to spin off the Mertzes into their OWN series but Vivian Vance REFUSED even for extra monies because she didn't want to chance bedroom scenes with Bill Frawley (and did her best to avoid getting too close to him in the original series- the two somewhat detested each other). Anyway, consider this series a 70's version of how THAT show might have gone had Vance been willing to tolerate bedroom scenes with Frawley. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2010, 9:33 am

Tortellis, The - TV Shows
What was the point of spinning off the LEAST likable members of the Tortelli Family? I'd have preferred Carla with her own show but, Rhea Perlman''s post"Cheers" effor "Pearl" proved DOA itself! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 2, 2010, 11:46 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
Would anyone have imagined that this show has actually lasted longer than "Gunsmoke"?! Only thing more surprising is that it's now even less relevant and entertaining than "Gunsmoke" was when IT finally gasped its last! Are there that many folks with broken remotes who can't find the Off Switches or wall sockets to unplug their sets watching because they'd be the ONLY ones I can think of who still bother with this show! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 2, 2010, 11:35 am

Tootsie Rolls - Random Topics
Prince J, Have you ever had Necco Chocolate Wafers? Think St. Joseph's Chewable Aspirin in texture with a chocolately taste so vague(and oddly causing puckering) , that Tootsie Rolls taste almost the equivilant of Lindt Chocolate. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 2, 2010, 11:28 am

Let's Make a Deal - TV Shows
A somewhat lame and annoying show even considering the genre. However; it occassionally had its moments- like how one time they 'jokingly' gave away a baby elephant as the booby prize- but the contestant actually WANTED it and they'd already told her she'd 'won' it so their lawyers told them they HAD to let the contestant have said elephant which wound up costing them some $30,000 LOL! From that point on they only had booby prizes they could afford to lose. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 3, 2010, 9:59 am

Toy Story - Movie Series
OK, I've seen all versions (including the 3rd one on Sunday) and I have to say that it's never boned. However; I think it may be a good time to wrap up the series because I don't know how it can keep going without becoming redundant. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 3, 2010, 9:48 am

Jetsons, The - TV Shows
Robert, the 80's version wouldn't be able to hold an candle on an *IPOD screen* to anything much less the 60's version. Funny thing is that they tried to make the 80's version so 'topical' that it was dated as soon as it aired whereas the 60's version's proven timeless! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 3, 2010, 9:45 am

Hong Kong Phooey - TV Shows
Hong Kong Phooey racist? Does this mean that there's a race of talking, clothed yet clueless bipedal dogs out there ? LOL RIP, Scatman and Joe E.Ross. BOTH of you all sounded as though you were having fun doing those voices! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 3, 2010, 9:42 am

Mel Gibson - Celebrities
Even if I were willing to overlook how offensive he gets verbally (between his evidently insulting Jews, African-Americans, women- that means he's appearantly dissed well over half the population), I consider it incredibly offensive and arrogant that he's chosen to drive drunk putting countless other drivers, passengers and pedestrians at risk- especially when he could EASILY use a limo driver and not have to scrounge for cab fare like other citizens without his deep pockets! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 3, 2010, 9:37 am
