Phyllis (TV series) - TV Shows
Phyllis was even more unlikable and self-pitying in San Francisco than she'd been in Minneapolis, her daughter Bess was barely shown and oddly melancholy the whole time- and it didn't help that the only interesting characters' performers died(two from old age- and one from murder) almost as soon as the audience got to know them! Phyllis would have been better off staying in the Twin Cities and Mary Richards would have been better staying in her original renovated Victorian efficiency apartment instead of moving into that boring contemporary high rise. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 9, 2010, 11:32 am

GEICO Gecko, The - Celebrities
fletch000, If they could get Kelsey Grammer to reprise the voice, I wouldn't be surprised if it had the same Frazier Crane shelf life. What's he doing these days, anyway? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 9, 2010, 11:19 am

Trix Cereal - Random Topics
Friedrich, I remember that 'Election' because it happened during the US Bicentennial . I admit that I pestered my mother into buying a box JUST so I could cast a vote and wasn't happy because not only did she insist I EAT the cereal [sorry, shanequia, I'm glad you liked it but I personally NEVER liked this stuff] but also, even though I voted to let the Rabbit EAT this stuff (and my vote was part of the MAJORITY who also voted), that rotten cartoon kid took the cereal AWAY from the Rabbit IN SPITE of the majority vote. BOO! Yep, I lost out and got ripped off TWICE- having to eat it and then having my vote being overturned by a rotten cartoon kid! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 5, 2010, 7:11 am

Mama's Family - TV Shows
I can't say I thought it was high-quality television nor something worth seeking out, but I always like seeing it if I happen to catch it when it's on- especially if it's in the Syndication Years with Beverly Archer played Iola Boylen the next door busybody who's more entertaining than Rue McClanahan's Aunt Fran (and she herself freely admits hating the character). Let's just say that I'm not unacquainted with ANY of these characters in Raytown! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 3, 2010, 7:14 am

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
Even if it's one of those navel-gazing blog deals, congratulations, shanequia, for having such outstanding posts as to get someone else's attention enough for them to consider you YouTube worthy material. I hope he/she respects you! I've always thought your posts were intriguing! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 3, 2010, 6:57 am

Love Boat - TV Shows
As bad as the show was (and it was AWFUL!), oddly enough, it almost singlehanded salvaged the cruise line industry which by that point was literally sinking due to it almost entirely being kept afloat as strictly as a travel option for old fogies too jittery to want to use airplane when travelling overseas. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 2, 2010, 11:37 am

Osbournes, The - TV Shows
I agree, Chubby Rain. I also say it boned when so many. .er boneheaded talking heads PRAISED them for being 'a normal family'! Profanity saturation in front of one's kids, sending underaged kids out to nightclubs and living in a gaudily decorated pigsty's 'normal?!' I'm middle aged but I have NEVER used that kind of language in front of (much less TO) my parents that that pair constantly used re their parents! And they actually acted surprised that that brood wound up with substance abuse issues! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 2, 2010, 11:30 am

Krystal Restaurant - Random Topics
Think of White Castle 'burgers' -only without the five holes bored in, shanequia. And even when I ate just one, it always felt as though I was digesting gravel afterwards. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 30, 2010, 7:44 pm

Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin, The - TV Shows
I'm thankful I'm too old for this to have ever been an issue for me personally but I hated how this toy did all it could to DIScourage kids from using their own imaginations and just plug their brains into whatever this thing was pitching. How do parents expect their kids to be creative or imaginative if they have them play with pre-programmed stuffed critters instead of the old fashioned kind that required us kids to supply every syllable of dialogue? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 30, 2010, 7:41 pm

World Wrestling Entertainment - Random Topics
Lest we forget, until Cyndi Lauper started hyping Captain Lou Albano and the performing wrestlers in general in the early 1980's, it had been considered for decades a joke few folks bothered with. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 30, 2010, 7:24 pm

Lost - TV Shows
Not a problem, kitchenbreak. Inasmuch as the 'Net and media in general will do their darnedest to saturate us with every nanosecond of the show from now until the next show they wanna hype, I have no doubt I'll hear all about it from all my Lost-ie aquaintances so there's no point in my tuning in. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 30, 2010, 7:20 pm

New Zoo Revue - TV Shows
Yeah, I remember that one, shanequia! It WAS creepy. What exactly were Doug and Emmy Jo supposed to be doing with these animals? There were no cages (besides the treehouse elevator-don't ask ) and no one came by to pay admission but then, what kind of zoo would stay in business with just a ghastly white hippo- along with an owl and frog?! And it seemed the hippo was living in Doug and Emmy Jo's HOUSE (and the humans were supposed to be nothing more than boss and employee!). Oh, and it REALLY lost me (even as a kid) for having even more songs than 'H R Pufnstuf'-UGH! Yeah, I grant that Emmy Jo was cute in the miniskirt and go-go boots but if someone had just made a poster, there would have been no reason for anyone to willingly watch this show! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 29, 2010, 12:04 pm

Krystal Restaurant - Random Topics
The squares of meat are almost deli-sliced thin and so tiny that I think it's possible that this was the inspiration for the "Where's the Beef!" way back when-and it takes quite a few to even remotely get close to a 'real' burger size! Oh, and the buns are always soggy,too. This is one fast food spot that always smells MUCH better than the food tastes, IMO. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 25, 2010, 5:48 pm

Cocoon - Movie Series
I always thought it was unfair that the aliens took the old fogies who nearly wrecked their plans (and unintentionally turned one of their comrades into a dying raisin by using his pod as a pool prop) while leaving Steve Guttenberg who had HELPED them behind to deal with being the prime suspect in the 30 odd fogies' 'disappearances'. That said, not a bad pair of movies (to say nothing of Tahnee Welch [Raquel's daughter]why she did nothing after this I don't get)! Also, great last hurrahs for many screen stars of decades past- including Don Ameche! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 25, 2010, 5:31 pm

Cosmos: A Personal Voyage - TV Shows
Anyone else get annoyed when they'd abruptly from the special effects screen of zooming through the universe- to extreme close-ups of Carl Sagan's gawking mug? UGH! Not a bad series re space, science and history but his pretentiousness got wearisome very quickly (and those closeups were a symptoms)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 25, 2010, 5:16 pm

REO Speedwagon - Music Groups
I wish the Speedwagon would race 'Can't Fight This Feeling' off my radio and throw away the oar while they're at it! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 25, 2010, 5:01 pm

Murder, She Wrote - TV Shows
I have to wonder why it was that maybe only once or twice did anyone suspect JESSICA might have comitted any of the murders ! I mean, after 200+ murders she happens to stumble upon on an almost weekly basis for eight years, get others to fess up and earn her living as a murder mystery writer, wouldn't folks (and the law)have come to the conclusion she could have been [fictional] history's most prolific murderess? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 21, 2010, 11:43 am

Global warming - Random Topics
I've thought about whether to do this for a long time and I've decided that it's better to put my thoughts to cyberspace than to let folks think that my silence means I'm going along with the flow (and since this is the Bone the Fish Site where folks of all beliefs can express ourselves and NOT North Korea where only ONE opinion is allowed) . This is gonna be long so I hope you all can bear with me here! I'm old enough to have parents who remember the Dust Bowl of the 1930's in which in just a few generations of wreckless farming techniques and overtaxing of virgin prairie sod turned what had been the U.S.A's and Canada's bread basket into a desolate wasteland tormented by dust storms so violent that the dust from the distant prairies fell like snow in Chicago and was carried all the way across the Atlantic to London- and, in the meantime, many farmers and their families choked outright, got blinded or died from pneumonia due to 'dust lung' caused by breathing in what had only recently been the topsoil. Even those who stayed indoors weren't safe from incredible amounts of dust blowing into window/wall joints and through door cracks! This would lead to over 2 million farm family members leaving their homes as 'Okies' (since some of the worst devastation took place in Oklahoma) and resettling in California,etc. Why have I brought up the Dust Bowl? To demonstrate that it IS possible for nature for the worse to be altered via human choice. Do I think every single scientific claim re global warming is irrefutable? Not at all but if one looks at virtually every subject out there, one can find at least one person trying to advance their own agenda but that doesn't mean that all other data need be discarded due to the odd bogus statement! Yes, there are cycles of nature but the recent extremes of droughts,heat and storms seem to be at a far excellerated rate compared with how the cycles had played out in pre-human millenia! As to recent cold spells? Put it this way. If one drives from Gatlinburg, Tennessee to the top of Clingman's Dome , the elevation STILL increases from 1200 feet to over 6600 feet in 29 miles- despite the fact that there are a few steep downward slopes on the way to Tennessee's highest peak! And speaking of mountains? One thing that's gotten me to believe that global warming needs to at least be considered instead of instantly dismissed is that not too long ago I flew over the Alps and noticed far fewer glaciers than had been visible over the SAME terrain that had been filmed for the opening of "Sound of Music" back in 1964 (the opening Alpine shots is the ONLY part of the movie I liked but that's another topic)- and I've also noticed that the Rockies don't have as much snow as they did decades earlier. Curse photography if you like but photographers loved taking Alpine shots almost as soon as cameras were invented back in the 1840's they were able to safely bring glass plates up to the foothills to photograph. Anyway, thanks to those 19th century photographs, we have a visual document of the glaciers melting at a rate far faster than one would expect in 'natural' cycles. Eventually most folks came to realize that there had been human mistakes made that contributed to the Dust Bowl's creation without having to study ice core samples,tree rings or satelite images. The good news it that through very hands on teamwork covering a wide scope of people, the Dust Bowl was able to be stopped and the areas became habitable even though all the effects weren't able to reversed. I don't claim to be all green (I drive a car and drink bottled water,etc.) but I'm willing to at least consider what I've seen around me re the environment and think about what might be best re our planet with six billion people (and counting) and less resources every day to sustain ourselves. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 16, 2010, 5:30 pm
