Paula Poundstone - Celebrities
Yeah, Ms. Poundstone's 'still on the scene', flech -although, why anyone would want to watch her is beyond me. Even subtracting having been found guilty of endangering minors while driving intoxicated (and losing her 'right' to be a foster parent but NOT to keep the kids she'd already adopted- what's that about, legal eagles?), I always found her too dull and unfunny to bother with. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 14, 2010, 6:59 pm

Addams Family, The (1973 animated series) - TV Shows
Oddly enough, Jodie Foster voiced Pugsley (NOT Wednesday) Addams for this. Also, kind of sad that one-time child actor millionaire Jackie Coogan had to resort to voicing Uncle Fester again just 7 years after the original show wrapped . The above trivia (and the fact that their mansion now FLEW) were the only interesting parts of the Saturday morning cartoon which just made us kids look forward Monday afternoons when we could see the REAL show rerun on our local channels. Yep, any show that could actually make a kid want to wish the weekend away and endure a Monday in school CAN'T be good! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 14, 2010, 6:52 pm

Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse - TV Shows
I remember one episode in which The Frog used some kind of devise to EXPAND The Duo to gigantic proportions and, until they got the antidote, The Frog had a one-amphibian crime spree because he rightly counted on these two being too lame to do anything more than freeze in place because they were too 'heroic' to want to chance having buildings or cars crushed by their gigantic size! Let's just say their Godzilla Meets Mister Rogers Tude made it one of the dullest cartoons this side of Pre-Cable Test Pattern Indian Chiefs. The Frog was a far more interesting and fun villain than this pair deserved and would have been way better spun off on his how! Also, did anyone else wonder why these two came together as partners instead of the cat chasing the mouse? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 14, 2010, 6:43 pm

Lidsville - TV Shows
Teenaged Eddie Munster performer gets stuck in the bottom of a hot with Magician Charles Nelson Reilly and Billie Hayes as a skittish male jini called Weenie?! UGH! Even by Krofft standards, this was nasty! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 14, 2010, 6:31 pm

Car 54, Where Are You? - TV Shows
flech, Agree about Fred Gwynne being good (remember 'YOOTS?!' from "My Cousin Vinny"), but the whole cast was awesome with Al Lewis (pre-Grandpa) playing Officer Schnauzer and Charlotte Rae playing Mrs. Scnnauzer(!) and Nipsey Russell shining. Also, this was the show to see some really funny cameos of some Borscht Belt faves like Molly Picon playing the irrepresible conniving Mrs. Bronson! Of course, Gwynne playing the lowkey yet occasionally high-strung Muldoon who had to deal with his always hyper cop car partner Gunther Toody (played by, Joe E. Ross) was classic! Of course, I used to wonder why they never had Joe E. Ross on "The Munsters" even doing a cameo. But then many years later, I knew someone who'd performed with him in regional theater and he said that he'd do that 'Ooh!OOH' sound onstage while playing an entirely different character which always brought a hearty laugh from the audience the very first time he'd do it in the show but he'd KEEP doing over and over again- oblivious to the ever more vocal groans and jeers from the audience and increasing annoyance of the rest of the cast- EVERY SINGLE SHOW! Maybe Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis had been 'Ooh! OOHED!' to death on this show and didn't want to chance any more on their own. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 3:21 pm

Mad Max - Movie Series
I actually liked the 3rd movie with Tina Turner-and more importantly liked the idea that civilization could arise again after annihilation even if the descendents didn't quite get the concepts of ancestral life (see Renaissance after Dark Ages!). Still, I think it was time to retire the series inasmuch as if civilization was being reived without Max (the ONE vestage of it in previous films), exactly what would his purpose have been? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 3:00 pm

Beach Boys, The - Music Groups
Is it just me or does anyone else think they peaked with "Good Vibrations"? Yeah, it's tough to imagine what could have topped it but gotta love that theremin! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:53 pm

Baretta - TV Shows
Was the show great in its time? Yeah and I'm glad I got to see it when it came on! Do I want to now help support Blake who's had quite a few issues since the show went off the air including his wife's questionable homicide by buying it on DVD? Nope! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:50 pm

Maude (TV series) - TV Shows
Interesting point, fletch! I'd also like to point out that since Maude actually had a job for only one episode (ONE!), it seems her motives for having a maid were more to impress her rich neighbors and avoid 'demeaning' housework instead of out of necessity of not having the time to get to said housework due to being employed. And, before anyone jumps on me for this, I'd also like to ask why couldn't Walter or Carol have pitched in re the housework after work or why couldn't even Phillip had done so after school? All four members of that family were perfectly able-bodied (Carol more than others)! And for all her purported 'liberalism', Maude never seemed to consider it the slightest imposition to any of her maids to work on weekends or very late into the night! Never mind that she knew Florida had a family with young children (yeah, they were barely mentioned and NOT the same as in "Good Times" but they did exist) she had to commute back-and-forth from Harlem to the relatively remote New York suburb of Tuckahoe! Who was watching Florida's young kids on late weeknights and Saturdays while MAUDE had her work for her? I'll bet Maude never once thought of that but just thought that by trying to insist on Florida using the front door, she'd entirely done right by Florida and her family. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:37 pm

My Favorite Martian - TV Shows
Not a bad show, fletch, but I have to agree with the late Ray Walston's assessment that it would have been WAY better had the focus been on Martin as a fish out of water (or Martian out of saucer) coping with dumb Earth customs and protocols instead of them opting for the Martian 'magic' and trickery angle. I mean the early "Beverly Hillbillies" did that and their audience loved it instead of being offended so why not a Martian doing that?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:20 pm

Supremes, The - Music Groups
She had her demons and may not have been easy to work with, but I don't think they did right by Flo Ballard- or her kids! And if one hears one of her post-Supremes songs, one may be surprised at how similiar she sounded to Roberta Flack- of all people! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:15 pm

Sigmund and the Sea Monsters - TV Shows
Friedrich, That was one WARPED show! I never figured out if they planned to do anything with Sigmund other than keep him hiding out in their clubhouse for the rest of his life! How was THAT an improvement over dealing with bullying brothers and oblivious parents? It would be like tunneling out of a school and winding up in solitary confinement forever! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:08 pm

Parenthood (1990) - TV Shows
Not a bad show, but I knew it wasn't going to last long considering that they'd manage to recreate a scene from the movie (sometimes word for word) in every single episode. Also, they dropped the character of the loser younger son with his biracial toddler child that the grandparents were having to raise which could have provided some interesting storylines. I wonder if the newer version will at least keep the biracial grandchild as a character? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 12, 2010, 11:50 am

Donny and Marie (1976 TV series) - TV Shows
To think, it was from THIS show that the ill-fated "Brady Bunch Variety Hour" spun off from. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 12, 2010, 11:41 am

Candid Camera - TV Shows
Not a bad show but it went on for WAY too long- and the idea that ordinary folks didn't know who Alan Funt was or expect him to come 'round the corner became rather ludicrous by the end.Believe it or not, the show started out on radio as "Candid Microphone"- anyone else find that oddly more intrusive than being filmed? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 12, 2010, 11:38 am

Bosom Buddies - TV Shows
It was actually a great deal funnier when they WEREN'T in drag. Oddly enough, I thought Peter Scholari would become a bigger star than Tom Hanks. LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 12, 2010, 11:29 am

Quarterflash - Music Groups
Feel bad for you, dolfan! HATE that song. Why doesn't she just harden her heart and shut up after the FIRST time she tells her plans?! We GOT it after the zillionth time! Thankfully, my father is of a different generation than yours but mine DID play the 'Boris Godunov' opera album about that many times when I was growing up so I've somewhat got an idea where you're coming from. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 12, 2010, 11:24 am

Lisa Marie Presley - Celebrities
Robert, That's no joke because I guarantee that had her dad a breath left in him, EVERYONE would have heard about his disapproval of that union! Guarantee it! You'll note that the flood of claimed 'sightings' of Elvis suddenly went bone dry after that! I once went to the outside of Graceland and saw the enough of cult surrounding it for myself but I refused to help support Lisa Marie and Priscilla (and there were plenty of more interesting things to do in Memphis) so I didn't bother going inside. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 12, 2010, 11:18 am

Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show,The - TV Shows
Yeah,fletch, any show that transformed Bamm-Bamm the World's Strongest Baby into a total wimp and Pebbles from a sweet baby into a whiny scold more annoying than even her mother Wilma got on her worst day boned from Day One! UGH! What were they THINKING?! And don't get me started on their 'friends'. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 11, 2010, 11:42 am

Greatest American Hero, The - TV Shows
Here's a weird trivial thing about it! Originally the protagonist's surname was Hinkley. Understandably; after someone named John Hinkley attempted to assasinate President Ronald Reagan, TPTB hastily changed the surname to 'Henley' or 'Mr. H'. What's REALLY weird,though, is that before the show left the air, they changed the surname BACK to Hinkley even though President Reagan's attempted assassin had not changed HIS name. Did they count on the viewing public FORGETTING the attempted assasin's surname or not caring about it barely a year later?! I'm still clueless as to why ABC switched it back. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 11, 2010, 11:34 am
