Honeymooners, The - TV Shows
GREAT show but anyone else wonder if there were any husbands watching out there who actually POWWED their nearby wives 'right in the kisser' while Ralph comically threatened to do the same to Alice? Yeah, I know he never actually DID (and Alice knew it too, and never backed down no matter how much verbal stuff he yelled at her)! Also, the late Art Carney as Norton ROCKED (and it was his character who first used the phrase 'Hello, out there in TV Land!')! And, the comic talents of Gleason, Carney and Audrey Meadows were such that for once the TV audience had no problems seeing the action take place almost entirely in a home more depressing and downtrodden than most of theirs (unlike most 50's sitcoms with immaculate homes,etc). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:49 am

McMillan & Wife - TV Shows
fletch, I'm sure Mrs. McMillan would agree.[yeah, I'm being bad] -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:40 am

David Cassidy: Man Under Cover - TV Shows
TOTALLY agree with you here, fletch! He was the son of Jack Cassidy but if there were any genes for doing dramatic acting, they sure didn't seem to get passed down to HIM! It didn't help that he seemed downright annoyed to have to stoop to this for a paycheck and it showed! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:36 am

Flo (Progressive Insurance) - TV Shows
I'm not saying she doesn't have physical appeal,fletch, but she seems flakier than a Kellogg's factory! And, I'm staying in the 20th Century not doing ANY monetary transactions online- thanks very much! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:32 am

Perry Mason (TV series) - TV Shows
Thanks for bringing that up, fletch! I liked the old show a great deal,too! But I always thought it was funny how they could never, EVER allow the existance of a child on the show to have been conceived from a nonmarital union ( going to absurd lengths to reveal 'secret marriages',etc.)- as though murder, extortion,blackmail were perfectly acceptable to the TV audience but for a child to be from a nonmarital would have been considering too offensive for the extremely sheltered audience (like no one ever knew anyone from one back then? Please!). Also, it was funny how Paul Drake never seemed to have any other clients and how he(and Della) were perfectly willing to drop whatever they were doing at any hour of the day or night just to suddenly help Perry prove a hunch! And, it was cool that Della called them Perry and Paul instead of 'Mr. Mason' and 'Mr. Drake' as most 50's secretaries did their bosses and bosses' colleagues back then! I don't think two-way first name basis re secretaries and employers was seen again on TV until Carol called Bob and Jerry by their given names on "Bob Newhart Show" in the 70's! And, of course, it was great seeing Paul, Perry (and sometimes Della) get the incriminating evidence with the capper of Perry getting the REAL criminal to spill their guts in front of the courtroom! Yeah, of course, I know in real life, that would have meant ANOTHER trial for the criminal instead of them being immediately taken away to prison forever but it was great drama! The original show NEVER boned but I'd like to forget the remakes ever happened. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:29 am

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
