Munsters Today, The - TV Shows
In honor of the REAL Munsters (with Fred Gwynne, Al Lewis and Yvonne DeCarlo doing some of the best work of their varied careers), can we just forget this latter mess ever happened? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 21, 2009, 7:21 am

Cigarettes - Random Topics
I meant to type my mother QUIT (with no 'e on the end') smoking ages ago. Well, at least I can't blame my typos on smoking! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 21, 2009, 7:18 am

So, you think, he'll start doing Labor Day Telethons, shanequia? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 20, 2009, 6:57 pm

Excellent points, shaenequia. And, every woman who reads this should also know (in addition to what it does to the lungs,heart,etc), it makes wrinkles come a LOT faster. My aunt looks about 10 years older than my mother despite being a few years younger due to her smoking while my mother quite ages ago! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 20, 2009, 6:56 pm

Mork & Mindy - TV Shows
It was bad enough when they got rid of Mindy's humorously stuffy dad and wacky grandma (and brought in boring characters) but when Mork Laid The Egg?! I was DONE! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 19, 2009, 10:10 am

Animal Planet - Random Topics
I bummed out when they kept showing that 'Animal Cops' show over and over again. The first episode seeing those horribly neglected/abused animals was quite shocking for me and no matter where the city was, the result was the same- animals in horrific shape due to the monsters who were supposed to care for them. Yes, I'm completely outraged when things like that happen but having endless episodes of showing the same was downright depressing instead of educational and I had to quit watching! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 19, 2009, 10:07 am

Highlander: The Series - TV Shows
One of those shows I'm embarassed to admit I watched! I don't know what was worse, the lame attempts at drama or the even lamer times they'd try to do comedy. Also, it bugged me that they'd often stage these duels in VERY public places yet no one ever seemed to summon the police nor did any of the duelers seem worried about police intervention. Lastly, why did EVERY European character speak in English even when they had no clue that the person they were speaking to would know the language? Yeah, yeah, just a TV show, suspension of disbelief, blah, blah, blah, but still. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2009, 9:46 am

I happened on this while surfing channels one day and couldn't stand more than a minute of it. Just. Icky. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2009, 9:40 am

H.R. Pufnstuf - TV Shows
I can see why you'd avoid this show, shanequia! Yeah, was that thing a dragon or was it Mayor McCheese? Me? I remember as a kid being bored by all the singing- and I never got the point of why Jimmy worked so hard to protect Freddy the Flute. That Flute had all the likability of a saxephone with a broken reed! UGH! Also, if EVERYthing on Living Island was 'living' (could think and talk) what exactly was anyone supposed to eat? Ironic that the only vaguely likable character was Witchiepoo because she never gave up her quest no matter how many times she got humiliated like Wile E. Coyote. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2009, 9:37 am

Taylor Swift - Celebrities
I can't say I was a big fan of her music before but I always liked her creative lyrics and her rare level head in a rather chaotic industry. Anyway, after the Kanye West incident, I have to say that I truly admire how she and Beyonce not only kept their cool despite both of them being put in a rather awkward situation before a worldwide audience but conducted themselves as true ladies when Beyonce generously invited Ms. Swift to share her limelight later on without harping on what Kanye West had pulled! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2009, 11:28 am

IKEA Furniture - Random Topics
There's no point in trying to have a dialogue with someone who considers what the other person has to say to be nonsense and ignorant so I'm done with neo as I have much better ways to spend my time than continuing that or putting together furniture from scratch. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2009, 11:24 am

Facts of Life, The - TV Shows
Anyone remember the cringing Molly Pity Party Episode? That was when she found out her parents were splitting so she sang a song on a guitar full blast like she was headlining at a beatnik coffeehouse and the studio audience applauded her like she was Joan Baez. Sorry, no go. And, unfortunately there was also no go for henpecked headmaster Mr. Bradley who got himself guilt tripped into cancelling his Hawaiian vacation by Mrs. G JUST so he could stay in the dorm and console Molly! Great message. If your parents split, the whole world better come to a grinding halt to console you or you'll belt out a number! And,even during Molly Ringwald's movie career height, how many other songs does anyone remember her singing ? That's what I thought! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 13, 2009, 7:15 pm

Avengers, The - TV Shows
Diana Rigg as Mrs. Emma Peel ALWAYS rocked. What was great was, unlike James Bond, Steed NEVER pretended to be anything besides a stuffy, middleclass,stiff upper lip, urban Englishman- always with that bowler and umbrella no matter where they were or how crazy the situation -somewhat like Alice stayed true to herself in Wonderland! Of course, the best episode had to be Diana Rigg's final one in which the presumded dead Mr. Peel had been found alive after years in the Brazillian jungle and so without the slightest hesitation, Emma resigned her comission as Steed's indispensible assisant and told her replacement that Steed always liked his tea stirred counter-clockwise (demonstrating re an 'air cup')- and then walked away to join her husband who looked EXACTLY like Steed (and, like Steed would have been, not a whit daunted or changed by his time being stranded in the Brazillian jungle). Of course, Emma had always teased Steed flirting with him but never letting on that she had any serious interest in him- and, of course, with Mr. Peel's re-appearance, Steed knew exactly why she'd behaved with him yet Emma had never hinted at him having any resmblence. The replacements just couldn't hold a candle to Emma but it was a cool show to watch and had one of the best 60's spy show themes ever! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 13, 2009, 6:54 pm

IKEA Furniture - Random Topics
No, neo 11, I do NOT think that folks in Europe ONLY get around via bicycle or train but for many reasons (e.g. gas prices more than double in US, extra narrow city streets built centuries before cars' invention, a tiny number of available parking spaces,etc.) a LARGER proportion of Europeans use those modes of transport instead of cars than do folks in the USA (which isn't the ONLY non-European nation where folks use cars). Many folks who have cars only use them for road trips where there are no passenger rail lines and the cars themselves are often much smaller than US models due to the above-mentioned high gas prices and narrow city streets . Yes, there are also folks in the USA that opt not to use cars but, so far, they don't seem to have the same proportions as their European counterparts. I'm sorry if the phrasing of my first post made it sound as though I thought that NO Europeans had cars or that NO US Americans went without cars but, for folks who don't own large vehicles to transport bulky items, IKEA Furniture has tapped a very viable market so that's why they've been more of a hit in Europe. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 13, 2009, 1:43 pm

UFO Hunters - TV Shows
I guess they're like dogs chasing cars. If they ever actually CAUGHT one, they wouldn't begin to know what to do with it. As Calvin of "Calvin and Hobbes" once put it d the surest proof of intelligent life existing elsewhere in the universe is them NOT visiting here. ET stays home. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 12, 2009, 3:20 pm

My Big Fat Greek Life - TV Shows
This had been a somewhat fun movie about an awkward spinster overwhelmed by her demanding family who thought she'd found a means out by latching someone outside their ethnic group- only to discover her mate wanting to embrace HER heritage because he considered his own bland parents to be bores. Unfortunately, the TV show was an excellent example of going to the well once too often because the movie's complex characters got turned into crude caricatures and the underdog heroine got turned into a smug bore treating her extended family with open disdain. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 12, 2009, 3:08 pm

Geraldo Rivera - Celebrities
I remember Al Capone's Vault (yeah, I wasted a few hours of my life watching the fool thing) and I recall how rather highhanded Geraldo was to the excavators - blowing air horns while they were digging so the jackhammers wouldn't be heard over his own whiny drone. In the end when he found nothing, they started surrounding him looking really . . .peeved and I was hoping we'd see the excavators invite him out to the nearest parking lot and that that would be the last we'd EVER hear from him on the air. Alas, there seemed to be a market for his whiny drone so he's kept returning on the air like a bad penny. I've never been able to stand him and believe he boned from Day One. What was really bad was the way he'd act all Mr. Hypersensative to his often fragile,shattered talk show subjects (whose woes he eagerly had them spill for a nationwide audience) yet it's public record that he wasn't always totally honorable to his spouses. Even if one doesn't care about the adultery, the shameless hypocrisy of him acting as though he was Mr. Hypersensative on the air while behaving somewhat differently off air was quite stomach churning. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 12, 2009, 2:55 pm

Anastasia - Movie Series
Everyone can think what they want about the Romanov Massacre. However; IMO, the only way there could be no 'real villain in history' would be for there to have been no order given for their execution and for all the bullets and bayonets impaling themselves into their human and canine targets entirely on their own! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 12, 2009, 2:42 pm
