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

Emergency! - TV Shows
How about subtracting that one episode guest starring Uno Hoo and judging the REST of the series? I don't recall that episode at all but I remember most of the rest of the episodes and considering the number of viewers who watching it and got inspired to become rescue personel and medics, I think this show ROCKED! Only draggy parts were when they'd do dumb stuff at the fire station between calls, but I could live with that because they were showing (then) cutting edge medical technology and rescue techniques. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2009, 11:36 am

Sanford - TV Shows
shanequia, You didn't miss much! Between Fred getting a Southern redneck new 'son' then him courting and marrying a wealthy Beverly Hills widow, it was downright painful to watch. Worst episodes had to do with them finding out that, instead of the late beloved Elizabeth, Fred had mistakenly married. ..Aunt Esther and the two of them had to fly to St. Louis to get the marriage annulled (and somehow get their marriages to their late spouses retroactively recognized). LaWanda Page did as outstanding a job here as always but it was just a rotten thing to pull on these characters the viewers had always rooted for! I prefer to think the whole series was something Fred dreamt up after quaffing bad muscatelle! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2009, 11:29 am

2012 doomsday prediction - Random Topics
So, folks are supposed to trust a prediction made centuries before by someone who lived in a society that practiced human sacrifice and was already in ruins before the first Spanish explorers reached it? I don't think so. BTW, there have been predictions for the world's end as far back as 1000AD. We're not promised even one more day but I don't think it's smart to consider this prediction legit. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 4, 2009, 11:41 am

Olympics, The - TV Shows
It's not the Olympics' fault that the backstories are shown, it's the US network's! During all those lengthy 'interviews' about 6th generation Swiss goatherders, there are plenty of OTHER competitions that could be broadcast but instead the network opts for 'interviews' or making the Olympics about one or two 'stars' instead of letting the TV audience judge for ourselves what we think of ALL competitors in all competitions re atheletic ability! Other nations' coverage doesn't focus on 'interviews' to the extent of the US's, believe you me. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 1, 2009, 3:59 pm

Disney - Random Topics
Oh, I can think of another boning time for Disney. A late friend of mine had been paralyzed by polio back in the 1950's and grew up spending summers getting therapy in Warm Springs, Georgia (yes, the very same place President Roosevelt vacationed at and eventually died in). Anyway, my friend said that every other studio would let the facility run '3rd run' movies for free so those patients who never would have had the opportunity to be leave the facility to watch the movies in 'first run' theatres (full price when they'd first premiere) or 'second run' showings (discounted prices- usually at drive-ins) could view them in their insitutions. However: according to my late friend, NEVER did Disney allow the crippled patients see any of their movies at Warm Springs! Why? Evidently, they didn't want to take the chance of patients' families, insitutional staff,etc. skipping those showings in which the studio would charge for to see grainy, skipping and badly spliced versions for free that the patients had no choice to see. Yep, if what my late friend said was true,Disney seemed to care more about not chancing freebies than letting badly crippled children see their movies! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 1, 2009, 3:42 pm
