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

I've Got a Secret - TV Shows
Had its moments- especially in the early years. Most notably, when Lucille Ball guested on the panel,they had a 95-year-old man named Sam Seymour as a contestant whose secret was that, as a 5-year-old, he'd actually witness President Lincoln's Assasination at Ford's Theatre! Yep, someone who'd been around during the US Civil War (AKA War Between the States), actually lived to the television age (and this would make Lucy one of the most worthy Degree of all time re Six Degrees of Separation) and he told an interesting tale about how he was more startled as a 5-year-old seeing John Wilkes Booth jump on the stage from the box seat! Of course, this show was often just a vehicle for start to promo their latest project even during its heyday. The last rendition was simply too tasteless and juvenile to for me to be able to watch through even once. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2010, 3:04 pm

Are You Being Served? - TV Shows
It started out as a very funny and clever series (and, having worked in retail, I could somewhat relate). However; as time went on, it became increasingly cartoonish and the characters became caricatures but they kept bringing it back like re-warmed oatmeal long past it being palatable- especially its last season in which they sold the store and all these folks who couldn't stand each other in the city were working in some struggling resort hotel. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2010, 2:52 pm

Clue Club - TV Shows
This was "Scooby Doo" for those who thought the original was too outdated for them- yet how many folks still remember this one? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2010, 2:40 pm

Motel 6 - Random Topics
Yeah, MCS, if one believes that staying in filthy rooms with broken fixtures and neighbors having nonstop parties all hours ( especially on weekends) somehow makes it worth saving $10 or even $5 a night, Motel 6 might be the perfect spot! Tom Bodet's spots weren't bad but I'm not sure they alone made the places worth enduring. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2010, 2:37 pm

John Mellencamp - Celebrities
To be fair, MCS, the 'John Cougar' then 'John Cougar Mellencamp' tags seemed to have been foisted on him by his then-labels and he's been performed without any feline tags ever since. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2010, 2:29 pm

Jefferson Starship - Music Groups
It boned even before 'We Built This City'. Anyone else remember their Slick-free appearance as holograms in the "Star Wars Holiday Special"? UGH! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2010, 2:28 pm
