Ice Cream - Random Topics
Stephanie, sometime I hope you get to Asheville, North Carolina where the Biltmore Estate is located. I don't know what they do to those cows but I've NEVER had richer ice cream than there! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 17, 2009, 4:44 pm

Magnum P.I. - TV Shows
I know that it was far from a 'family show' but I didn't like how barely a thought was given to how his small child who'd witnessed her mother's murder was being cared for after he got shot or joined the Navy! About as neglectful as the "Friends" re parenthood. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 17, 2009, 9:15 am

Ruff & Reddy Show, The - TV Shows
Saw for the first time in decades on a site that rhymes with 'Few Moob' and now I understand why the 'episodes' lasted only four minutes- they were BORING! I mean, the only funny part was the beginning when the backfiring scooter jolted the dog in the air. Even 'Romper Room' seemed more fun than this! I guess they were custom made for us Baby Boomer proto-rug rats' attention span. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 17, 2009, 9:12 am

Carol Burnett and Friends - TV Shows
My fave 'Family' skit had to do when it was Mama's birthday and right after Ellen gave Mama a mink coat, Eunice eagerly unwrapped off HER gift to Mama- a fly swatter. "It makes a GREAT converSAtion piece!" Between Mama's disgusted face and Eunice dumbly prattling on about her gift's 'virtues'(that did NOT include being able to kill flies), I couldn't stop laughing. Of course, Mama killed me when (after the inevitable family war started by Eunice), Mama dissed Eunice by saying "Eunice, I hope I never got so old and decrepit that I have to have a bunch of strangers standing in my kitchen with nothing better to do than talk about fly swatters!" Oh, yeah, and Carol Burnett doing the Scarlett bit (complete with curtain rod) was a side-splitter! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 16, 2009, 2:40 pm

Space Ghost - TV Shows
Ironically, the original show wasn't really trying to be funny yet actually was much funnier than the supposed talk show sequel which tried VERY hard. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 16, 2009, 2:30 pm

Jeffersons, The - TV Shows
It wasn't the same after Mother Jefferson died. Always liked that she never claimed to feel guilty about living high on the hog AND was the only one who didn't treat Weezy like she was a saint! If only she had lived to see her great-granddaughter born so they could have ganged up against the more boring middle generations. I wonder if the show would have lasted ten episodes(much less ten seasons) had there never been Mother Jefferson or Florence? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 16, 2009, 2:28 pm

2001: A Space Odyssey - Movie Series
It may sound odd but I actually liked the SEQUEL much better since it explained things in a quasi-logical way- and I thought it was cool that HAL was willing to sacrifice himself to save the crews (and the Earth)! Of course, I didn't actually see the original until sometime later- and soon got bored with the thing having virtually no dialogue,little action and even the space craft having zero color. Sorry, but I never got into the trippy,psychelic scene. However; when I saw the original's end, I thought 'Ah-HAH! NOW I see why the hippies liked this movie so much!'. Oh, and here it is 2009, and not only has manned interplanetary space travel not happened, and the Soviet Union got disbanded just a few years after "2010" was filmed but also such things as Pan-American no longer exist despite the film's prediction. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 16, 2009, 2:21 pm

Today - TV Shows
Remember when they first had Willard Scott on? He actually started out as rather low key but with an underlying sense of humor but that all changed when Carolyn Jones (immortalizer of Morticia) died and he claimed that they two of them had performed together as children (?!)- and that he'd once dressed up as Carmen Miranda. OK, as hard as that was to imagine (like what it may have been like for Al Gore and Tommy Lee Jones to have been college roommates), I'd have been willing to let that remain a quirky puzzler that I would have preferred not to have to picture- but then Willard said he'd dress up as Carmen Miranda AGAIN IF someone donated $1000 to charity. Yep, someone DID so Willard did the Carmen Miranda get up in drag and BECAME a drag from that point on because no longer did he attempt to an informed weather person with underlying humor but decided to become a loud,obnoxious, brainless CARTOON and the whole show went south with him (and I ain't whistling 'Dixie')! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 14, 2009, 7:22 am

How can Julie Kavner have ANY voice left after doing the laryngetic Marge and Bouvier Family voices for 20 years? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 8, 2009, 11:44 am

Happy Days - TV Shows
Although, I still contend that it become far broader with the Studio Audience was the REAL boning, I agree that having Richie,Ralph and Potsie graduate high school would have been an apt point for it to end. I mean, there's NO WAY three collegiants would have STILL considered Fonzie the mechanic the font of all knowledge and wisdom whom they were in awe of. Even Potsie would have considered Fonzie somewhat of a loser after high school and Fonzie would have quit hanging out with any of them in favor of other non-collegiants his own age! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 8, 2009, 11:42 am

Reality Television - Random Topics
No offense, Robert, but I think THAT barrel had lined an outhouse instead of a well! Sad irony is that the first attempt "The Louds- An American Family" back in the early 1970's clearly demonstrated how cameras 24/7 proved to be catalysts for self-destruction to non-professional actors to the point that no network attempted to do another 'reality' show until MTV started "The Real World" back in the early 1990's. This definitely shows the ski-slope of network standards and respect for participants and the viewing audience that's taken place! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 8, 2009, 11:37 am

Leave It To Beaver - TV Shows
This show was first launched into the airwaves on October 4,1957- the EXACT same day as the Soviet Sputnik satellite! I wonder if Ward ever thought Beaver somehow was responsible? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 5:37 pm

Brooklyn Bridge - TV Shows
Actually, I think it worked quite well! I really enjoyed this one but it always felt as though I was the only one who was watching it. Perhaps, it was fitting that the final episode had to do with the family dealing with two potential catastrophes in the outside world that they thought would shake their lives forever- the Brooklyn Dodgers moving to LA and the Soviets launching the Sputnik into space! The latter one they showed the family watching actual 'live' news coverage of it with the anchors 'tracking' its course using a black magic marker that lost its tip! LOL. Ironically enough, the only 'adult' family member who lived to see this show was Mr. Goldberg's real life grandmother who was in her 90's but very vocal about the discrepencies! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 5:33 pm

Emergency! - TV Shows
I guess Ms. Lyn must have been too obscure for me in non "My Three Sons" roles for me to even notice. Anyway, only two episodes boning but the rest of the show rocking works for me as a perfectly good compromise, shanequia! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 5:15 pm

My Mother The Car - TV Shows
To think, this was considered the high point of Jerry Van Dyke's career until he played the sidekick on "Coach" and it proved to be the last regular TV series role for the prolific Ann Sothern! I agree it was very bad, shanequia, but the worst show of all time? Have you seen "Life with Lucy" or "AfterM*A*S*H" -not to mention too many un-reality shows to bother listing? I rest my case. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 5:12 pm

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
Good question, shanequia! I guess the best answer to that would that Africans knew better than to live in caves back then! Still, the ONLY good thing in the live-action movie version was Halle Berry playing the sneaky receptionist called 'Sharon Stone'. Believe it or not, they'd originally considered calling her 'Rosetta Stone' but the dorks thought that too few folks would 'get' it! Come on! I mean, Sharon Stone's nowadays is hardly headline news anymore- whereas the Rosetta Stone language software's making a killing! Considering that Miss Berry's character was the ONLY multifaceted character in the entire movie (and someone whose dialogue had more than one meaning), naming her after the discarded piece of rock that proved to be the key to unlocking Ancient Egyptian heiroglyphics would have been PERFECT! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 5:08 pm

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
I liked Hester Sue,too, and was sorry they had her become Mrs. Oleson's 'help' after the Blind School closed for the last time. She'd run her own blind school so why not have her be the teacher instead of Miss Plumb (Michael Landon's daughter) or have her run the post office? I thought 'LHTOP' was supposed to be 'progressive' but it sure didn't turn out that way for Mrs. Turhune! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 5:02 pm

Whitney Houston - Celebrities
Thanks, shanequia. I'll never forget seeing that pic at those awards and thinking 'Tina Turner's not looking so good these days'- then finding out it was Miss Houston! Yikes! And to think, not only does Tina Turner look better than Whitney these days, she also has saved her voice much better- same with Dolly Parton who originated 'I'll Always Love You!' and can still hit those high notes! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 4:58 pm
