NASA - Random Topics
Perhaps that is the case, MCS and Friedrich. However; from that contest such technology as PCs and the 'Net itself arose from the need to be able to process as much info ASAP via as little bulk and weight as possible so they could conserve rocket fuel so it wasn't without positive changes. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:04 am

Pinball Machines - Random Topics
Yeah, MCS- you just can't 'tilt' an iPOD player to finagle the score the same way you could a pinball machine. And already there's a generation out there who knows nothing about how satisfying a good SLAMMING hang up of an old fashioned telephone actually was(pressing the 'Off'button after having a heated convo just doesn't cut it)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 1, 2010, 11:50 am

Gidget - TV Shows
Actually, this was at times a little deeper than one would expect from the premise- with such issues as Gidget's mother having died a year before the show, her older sister and brother-in-law sometimes trying to overrule their father re raising Gidget and her staying friends with the intellectual, sun-allergic nerdy girl named Larue in spite of her own newfound popularity as a surfer chick! If one actually watches the show instead of dismissing it as pure fluff, one gets the sense of characters that were more multi-dimensional than expected and that Sally Field was already cutting her dramatic acting teeth even if those dramatic moments were often sandwiched between lengthy periods of sitcom fluff. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 1, 2010, 11:46 am

Chevy Chase Show, The - TV Shows
It's a testimony to Oliver Hudson's talent that he's since become a fairly notable performer after he somehow managed to live down his mother Goldie Hawn's and Chevy's lame humiliation of himself and his unnamed date on Chevy's opening show allegedly celebrating Oliver's 17th Birthday. Don't know what became of Oliver's date or even who she was. Maybe she'd prefer it that way! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 27, 2010, 4:39 pm

Laverne & Shirley - TV Shows
syzygy, There were so many real fishboning moments on that show that there was absolutely no need to concoct an entirely fictious episode. That's all I'm saying except that I wouldn't be surprised if there was someone out there gullible enough to have read your 'synopsis'- and bought the whole DVD set just to look for that non-existant episode. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 27, 2010, 4:30 pm

Manimal - TV Shows
He had something like maybe four different kinds of animals to change into-tops so the whole 'drama' came out which one will he turn into THIS week? Not surprisingly that this was almost as big as bust as "Supertrain" but what's amazing in hindsight is that these two shows were originally considered key by NBC as surefire blockbusters! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 26, 2010, 11:40 am

Dukes of Hazzard, The - TV Shows
Oh, yeah, PLZrulz, Fake Dukes were rather lame. Even if one ignored the fact that EACH of them was supposed to be a brother of one of the True Dukes who had never once referred to them before or after their own absence from the show- and, of course the True Dukes treated each other like brothers so it makes no sense that they'd have ignored their actual brothers! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 24, 2010, 7:33 am

Brady Bunch Movies, The - Movie Series
Why didn't they just leave well enough alone and let the tv reruns just remain on their own? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 24, 2010, 7:29 am

1960's - Random Topics
PYLrulz, The 1960's weren't the first period of widespread rebellion- and drugs had been around for ages beforehand in relative obscurity without exploding onto virtually every facet of society prior to that. Although, it's also interesting to wonder what that decade may have been like without the Vietnam War, I still think that drugs played a major role in that decade's outcome which has had repercussions still felt to this day. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 24, 2010, 7:26 am

Love, American Style - TV Shows
Ironically, it was very popular when it first was on- but it proved so instantly anachronistic that it's become obscure and almost entirely forgotten other than the fact that "Happy Days" evolved from one of its episodes -one of the few that did NOT take place in the 'contemporary' 1960's and 1970's! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 23, 2010, 1:36 pm

1960's - Random Topics
Does anyone else wonder what else the 60's would have achieved and how different today's society would be if drug usage had not become acceptable and popularized during this time? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 23, 2010, 1:32 pm

Waltons, The - TV Shows
syzgy, You're right! I was trying to forget that episode had ever happened- and I understand that this is one of the least favorite episodes of Kami Cotler(Elizabeth) herself. She said the 'revelation' about the character not wanting to grow up and watch her parents grow old and die was more how the writers felt about the character (the last remaining Walton 'cute kid' )than how she herself felt about life! This and the Kurt's Alive But Impotent Ep were definitely stinkers! CBN refused to air this episode in the rerun cycle because of its occult ponderings but I think it deserved to stay unaired just because it was awful. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 23, 2010, 1:29 pm

Three's a Crowd (sitcom) - TV Shows
It also didn't help that the late John Ritter and what's her name had absolutely zero chemistry playing characters that were supposed to be hot and heavy! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 22, 2010, 11:38 am

Six Million Dollar Man - TV Shows
Even when I was a kid, I wondered how he could lift cars without breaking every single one of his unbionic vertebrea- and I admit that I'm not so sure I'd have been happy to go through life with a grid atop one eyeball- even with all the cool bionic speed and strength! Well, it helped everyone forget about him being Barbara Stanwyck's stepson on "The Big Valley" so I guess it was good for his career in the longrun. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 22, 2010, 11:25 am

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
I hope you're right, Scotty. However; bear in mind that I said the same thing about Billy Ray Cyrus's longevity when he debuted 'Achy Breaky Heart'! Yeah, it's not always fair that sometimes one's most fave performers become obscure almost as soon as you've heard of them while some of one's most annoying performers somehow impress enough suits and fans to keep going forever even if you can't understand how anyone else could stand them but that's life. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 22, 2010, 11:19 am

Robin Williams - Celebrities
I wonder if even his biggest fans would genuinely like to sit on a plane next to him for more than ten minutes! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 22, 2010, 11:13 am

Lucille Ball - Celebrities
There's so much I could say about this lady (including being able to pinpoint exactly where I was when I heard of her passing), but I'll just say that I think she boned when she and Desi had to divorce each other for survival. Yeah, I know she became a really big executive becoming the first woman to run a studio since Mary Pickford, but there was always an undercurrent of sadness at not being able to stay wed to the love of her life that no amount of remarriage, parenting, accolades and popularity could entirely erase- and she became a clownish caricature of her glory days! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 22, 2010, 11:10 am

Teletubbies - TV Shows
I'm with Robert on this one! Parents, do you really expect your kids to support you comfortably in your old age via starting them out on a show that encourages them to be zombies? Just icky! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 20, 2010, 11:47 am

TAXI - TV Shows
A fun, wacky show that featured Andy Kaufman in prime time and somewhat launched Danny De Vito,Rhea Perlman,Tony Danza and Christopher Lloyd's careers! I never got tired of Kaufman but sometimes they focussed too much time and storyline to Reverand Jim who was a funny supporting character with quirkly one-liners but not someone really worth being the main focus, IMO! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 20, 2010, 11:41 am

Life With Lucy - TV Shows
Seeing 70-something Lucy and 80-something Gale Gordon get banged around by props,etc. evoked audience apprehension NOT laughs. If there was ever a sadder swansong to what had been a shining career, I haven't heard of it! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 20, 2010, 11:31 am
