Whoopi Goldberg - Celebrities
At the sentencing of Anthony Marshall who'd been convicted of defrauding his late, Alzheimer's afflicted 100+ year old mother Mrs. Brooke Astor of her fortune and having kept her in inexcusable filth, it came to light that Whoopi Goldberg had written the presiding judge a letter stating that any jail time for Mr. Marshall would amount to 'unnecessary cruelty that would serve no real purpose'. Funny, I don't recall her ever dissing Mr. Marshall for inflicting unnecessary cruelty on his ancient mother who'd been one of our nation's leading philantropists before Alzheimer's started killing her from the inside! Yes, he's now in bad health but he shouldn't expect mercy after having been convicted of having been completely merciless to his own mother who'd been in worse health and jail time WOULD serve a real purpose in making him reap what he sowed on his mother AND getting others to think about consequences before they considered doing that to the elderly in the lives! Whoopi, would you have wanted someone to treat one of your elderly relatives (or your elderly self)that way? I just don't get why anyone would defend someone like that! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 22, 2009, 11:29 am

Laurel and Hardy - Movie Series
I defy anyone to watch this series and not see where "Gilligan's Island" got a good part of its inspiration from! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 20, 2009, 5:09 pm

Mystery Science Theater 3000 - TV Shows
I can think of a few big time movies [cough] latter day "Star Wars" triology[/cough] that I wished the show had stuck around to skewer! It would have been a welcome counterpoint to all the shameless media worship. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 20, 2009, 5:01 pm

This Old House - TV Shows
Believe it or not, I can recall when it started out as a how-to show re renovating old houses with everyday tools and materials found in lumber yards,etc. for folks who found themselves wanting to renovate their old houses they'd barely been able to afford as efficiently as possible without having to blow endless bucks on specialty tools and materials! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 20, 2009, 4:55 pm

Hello, Larry - TV Shows
McLean Stephenson left M*A*S*H to wind up doing this?! Only thing sadder was when he later attempted to be an afternoon blabshow host! A performers playing one of his daughters would wind up being aunt to Paris Hilton. I wonder if she'd rather folks remember her work in "Hello Larry" than that factoid? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 20, 2009, 4:48 pm

Jon Gosselin - Celebrities
Shamelessly cashed in/exploited his kids, and blew the public's pity for him having been browbeaten by Kate by showing the judgment of a brain dead frat boy instead of a 30-something dad while STILL trying to exploit himself as father of a large number of kids. Does anyone have a petition to get the media to make a New Year's Resolution to IGNORE him from 2010 onwards? BOO! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 20, 2009, 4:42 pm

Kate Gosselin - Celebrities
Shamelessly cashed in /exploited her kids, browbeat her lame spouse on camera then threw herself an endless pity party on the talk show circuit when they split. Does anyone have a petition to get the media to make a New Year's Resolution to IGNORE her from 2010 onwards? BOO! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 20, 2009, 4:37 pm

Hugo Chavez - Celebrities
I agree, Robert, but then His Majesty Juan Carlos had singlehanded saved Spain's post-Franco representative government from doom when he defied thugs who attempted to hold the Spanish Cortes (parliament) hostage in 1981 by stating that he supported the legit government instead of them and rallied others to vanquish the thugs. In other words, King Juan Carlos knows the difference between a REAL representative government and a thug who's propped himself up. Oh, and I wish someone would confront Sean Penn and other Chavez fans on live national television about Chavez's blatant support for Colombian terrorists who have routinely kidnapped legitimate representatives and wreaked havoc on countless innocent civilians- yet Chavez backs THEM. How is THAT being a 'freedom fighter'? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2009, 1:56 pm

Snuggy - Random Topics
Didn't the Heaven's Gate folks who committed the mass suicide to go on a ride on a spaceship hidden by a comet wear robes similiar to this? Yeah, I agree it looks stupid and if I ever go to a ballgame with more than one 'fan' wearing one of these, I'll amscray before anyone tries to recruit me for any cult! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 15, 2009, 10:29 am

Hang in there, shanequia! I've worked retail during the Christmas season so I know where you're coming from! Great having you back! I've missed reading your inimitable commentaries! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 15, 2009, 10:25 am

Blues Brothers - Movie Series
I agree- and while John Goodman perfectly channelled Governor Huey Long, he was totally out of his element as a 'new'Blues Bro! And what's Jonny Lang done since this disaster? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 15, 2009, 10:21 am

MacGyver - TV Shows
Yeah, it was somewhat repetative but I liked how he was able to work his way out of impossible dangers thinking on his feet and using some of the most random objects to make cool tools. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2009, 11:51 am

Tiger Woods - Celebrities
While I'm by no means happy to find out that he's evidently been an adulterer, I'd hardly call him a 'complete waste of human flesh'. I mean, he's not on the same plane as child molestors or meth lab operators! I can't say I'm entirely surprised, though, as I always thought him being the Mozart of Golf being groomed nonstop to be an unbeatably phenomenal player from early toddlerhood onwards would cause damage in SOME capacity. One cannot do that to a child without something or someone having to give in a bad way somewhere down the line! Now that he's taking an 'indefinite leave' from the game that has been the dominant force in his life from as far back as he can remember, in addition to making up to his wife and family for his 'transgressions', I hope he uses this opportunity to try to work out his demons and find his peace to the betterment of others somewhat in the way Andre Agassi seems to have done since HIS retirement from sports. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2009, 11:48 am

Wacky Races - TV Shows
Just_a_Username, Ah, but if Dick Dastardly just sped up and won the race legit , that would have only meant a one-episode cartoon series and not much fun to watch- just like if the Coyote simply ordered take out poultry from Acme instead of all those bogus contraptions to trap the Road Runner, there would have been only one cartoon and no point in watching! BTW, I used to wonder about Penelope Pitstop. With that name, did she go into racing to avoid being part of the family business of a take-out barbecue restaurant?LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2009, 11:36 am

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Special - TV Shows
It's my 3rd fave Christmas special of all time and I REALLY liked the idea of a dissed outcast (Rudclph) trying hard to fit in but even getting dumped on by his 'rents- until his very impediment proved to save the day! Rankin Bass REALLY did the song justice! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 10, 2009, 9:32 am

Dr. Phil - TV Shows
LauDor08, Well, it sure takes ALL kinds. You're the first person here who's actually LIKED Dr. Phil- and I say this as someone who started out liking him but has long since gotten burned out by him and am grateful I usually have to work when his show's on. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 19, 2009, 9:30 am

18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
That woman seems to be the living embodiment of Groucho Marx's infamous (but probably apocryphal) punchline! As the story goes, when he was hosting the game show of "You Bet Your Life", each contestant would tell him a somewhat distinguishing characteristic of themselves so he could joke on it. Anyway, supposedly, one contestant told him that she was the mother of 20 children which supposedly prompted Groucho to ask her why she had so many to which she answered because she loved her husband. This allegedly prompted Groucho to say "Lady, I love my cigar a great deal,too, but even I take it out of my mouth every now and then!" Yeah, of course, it boned when they decided to put their kids in front of those 'reality show' cameras to exploit their situation! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 16, 2009, 7:46 am

House Hunters - TV Shows
I've managed just fine without a plasma tv, granite countertops and double bathroom sinks but one would think these were as vital as air to some of these homeowners. To me an out-of-date kitchen would one that only had a woodburning stove and a hand pumped sink yet some folks react as though if the appliances are more than a year old, they might as well be the Flintstones' kitchen! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 13, 2009, 7:13 am

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
I know it was supposed to be a sitcom but it sure had many sad situations. Not just the fact that these three rich kids with an indulgent uncle and doting English butler were ORPHANS! One of the saddest ones had to do when they befriended this girl named Eve (played by a pre-Jan Brady Eve Plumb). Anyway, their new friend Eve was in such frail shape that she couldn't go to school with the others but had to just do her homework from her room and they feel sorry for her so they visit her. Eve cheers up and they decide to really make Eve's day by throwing her an early Christmas since Uncle Bill's going to be out of the country during that time. Eve has a wonderful time but right when it's over, Eve's mom tells Uncle Bill that all this newfound friendship's getting too much for Eve's frail heart (despite the Davises' intents)so she needs Uncle Bill to tell the kids to quit visiting Eve. The last scene of that show's the killer as Buffy's heard crying her eyes out because Eve's doomed and now can't even have any friends over while Uncle Bill's walking up to her bedroom door like he's ready to console Buffy about the situation. I've often wondered what he COULD say to cheer Buffy up! Man, that was sad! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 12, 2009, 4:55 pm

Mr. Ed - TV Shows
Quite right! Alan Young himself said that toughest challenge of playing Wilbur was in having to pretend to be totally disinterested in Carol while preferring to spend as much time in the stable with his equine co-star! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 12, 2009, 4:37 pm
