Ally McBeal - TV Shows
Agree that Ms. Flockhart was way too thin but, even disregarding the star performer's appearance, it also was an unintelligent, meanspirited and unfunny show. Does anyone know anyone who admits to having liked it? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 5, 2009, 6:28 pm

That's My Mama - TV Shows
I liked it a great deal,too. I wished it had lasted long enough for Mama to become Grandma and butt in to her grandkids lives the way she did her grown kids! Also, if Clifton ever did settle down, he and his bride no doubt would have been pestered by her without the slightest break! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 5, 2009, 6:23 pm

Northern Exposure - TV Shows
I discovered it when it first started out as a barely-seen, little-known filler show that few folks knew about but those of us who'd stumbled on it felt as though we'd uncovered a hidden treasure. Needless to say, the 'secret' didn't last long and soon it became a mega hit. While it had a few close calls (and the last Season would have been better skipped), I have to say that I liked how it ended with all the individual characters of the town were just getting ready to shut down for the night but we all knew they'd be back at it the next morning even if we viewers won't going to be around to see it! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 5, 2009, 6:20 pm

Whoever marketted this back in the 70's proved Barnum's adage quite right! It didn't take a rocket doctor to wonder why folks were willing to pay cash for something they couldn't teach to play fetch and they could have dug up freebies in their own backyards! Bogus! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 4, 2009, 3:49 pm

Family - TV Shows
Someone on the Site That Shall Not Be Named once remarked that the mother Kate always seemed to have an expression like she was smelling old fish. It only seems apt here on This Site, to point out that it may have come from her having had to have read the scripts! Sad that stinker this turned out to be the prolific actor James Broderick's (Matthew's dad) swansong. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 4, 2009, 3:37 pm

Welcome Back Kotter - TV Shows
Agree, waltonlover1991. Of course, the last year was by far the worst. Between Vinnie only being on a few times working as a hospital orderly that the other Sweathogs would try to get into trouble (with 'And Special Guest John Travolta' for the billing) after Mr. Travolta's first movie career took off with "Saturday Night Fever" - and Gabe Kaplan having a major falling out with the producer James Komack which resulted in Kotter himself being reduced to almost no appearances, there was virtually nothing for even the diehard fans to cling to. Why they thought the audience would buy MRS. Kotter taking over her absent husband's job when she'd been a barely seen struggling student and mother of baby twins is somewhat of a mystery. Of course, the irony of the show is that it was created after some bigwigs got all excited about Gabe Kaplan's comedy album about his own high school antics yet he's gotten little lasting fame and the show only seems to get shown whenever there seems to be a demand for all things Travolta. As for the other Sweathogs? The only one who seems to even have small amount of residual fame is Horshack! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 4, 2009, 3:32 pm

Golden Palace, The - TV Shows
Can we all just agree that this whole mess is simply best forgotten? Utterly lame premise and it turned all three main characters into one-dimensional cartoons. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 1, 2009, 1:57 pm

Sabrina the Teenage Witch - TV Shows
I thought it was a bit lame and wouldn't be surprised if it turned out the laugh-track audience only was there because they'd run out of seats at the "Fat Albert" and "Scooby Doo" studios! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 1, 2009, 1:54 pm

Three Stooges Short Films - Movie Series
The easiest way to avoid the bones is to look at the opening credits and plea "Say it ain't Joe!". Even though Joe Besser was billed as 'Curly Joe', I don't recall him ever being called 'Curly'-just Joe. While Jerome 'Curly'Howard (born Horowitz) was the best buffoon stooge, Shemp was okay. Just remember, if there's less than 2/3rd's Howards in ths Stooge lineup, it's a bummer! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 1, 2009, 1:50 pm

Macarena, The - Random Topics
Not one of my fave dances by any means and I think its biggest sin was that it was played to death but come on, isn't it better than moshing in which injuries are almost a given while trying to 'dance' to stuff that's being screamed instead of sung or line dancing in which everyone's expected to do complicated, exuburant steps and kicks to some of the dullest country music? Still, I'd prefer its ultimate ancestor the flamenco (which has proven immortal) to it any day! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 1, 2009, 1:26 pm

Your welcome, Dolfan! I'm sure our POVs will soon by buried under tons of posts dissing us for not worshipping this show but I think you said what needed to be said to help balance those out. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 1, 2009, 1:21 pm

Head of the Class - TV Shows
First there was the Mike Tyson Moscow Meltdown- which totally ecclipsed not only the show's publicity but also destroyed Robin Givens's character's cred since she and the media rammed down the viewers throats she was Mrs. Mike Tyson, she was no longer believable as a high schooler. Yes, even though her character was an otherwise unmemorable supporting player on the show. Then came Howard Hesseman's abrupt departure which led them to bring Scotsman Billy Connolly to sub for him> Billy Connolly's a riot and his movie work proves he can be a great dramatic actor but he just didn't mesh here at all. I'm sure Hesseman's glad he's more remembered as Dr. Johnny Fever on "WKRP" than for his efforts here- and no doubt Connolly's barely given this a backwards glance! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 30, 2009, 11:51 am

Thanks, Dolfan! Others may vigorously deny it so they don't have to face having wasted many hours of their lives following this but I think you boiled down the hype to the essentials! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 30, 2009, 11:38 am

Michael Jackson - Celebrities
It seems fitting that I first got news of his death via a pop-up ad while surfing onto a fanfiction site but I have to admit that I was sadder than expected when I heard it. I couldn't help but think of all the talent and potential wasted on the fallout from his childhood and adulthood demons + paranoia- and I shuddered to think what are to become of those kids he claimed were biologically his. No matter how one slices it, they're in limbo! Yeah, all that weird stuff had LONG since creeped me out too much not to get squicked listening to his music but after his death, I couldn't help but wonder how much better it would have been had he retired immediately after 'Thriller' and went somewhere TOTALLY by himself to positively deal with his demons instead of surrounding himself with sycophants, blowing several kings' ransoms, mutilating his appearance and having rather questionable dealings with small children. I also couldn't help but think that the confident, eager,witty 11-year-old child who first burst to fame would have absolutely ran the other way had he met his adult self! Lastly, I hope that those who brought forth the accusations are getting major emotional support instead of persecution during this time as I believe they were badly exploited by both their own families who sought him out to reap fortunes and (even under the best case scenario of him not crossing the line to molestation) by Michael Jackson who, at best had them live like jet-set potentates for being in his company for months on end then sent them back to obscurity and comparitive material poverty when he was finished with them. Oh, would anyone else like to know who would spot for a $100 thousand/month rental house that looked like a resort hotel to someone ALREADY $400 million in debt? Hello, he'd signed contracts like postcards for quite sometime! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 28, 2009, 11:50 am

Mike Tyson - Celebrities
Tyson was beginning to bone way before the Buster Douglas fight. I knew he had serious issues when he accompanied his then-wife Robyn Givens- a supporting performer on "Head of the Class" along with the the rest of the cast and crew to Moscow what was intended to be a historic post-Detente moment of a then-top rated US network sitcom getting permission to film in the then-Soviet Union's capital city for the very first time. However; it wound up that not only did Tyson attract huge crowds of fans and reporters over there (who totally ignored every show cast member not married to Tyson) but then he had a very public meltdown in their Moscow hotel! Ironically, the episode itself and even the show itself was somewhat ecclipsed by Tyson's meltdown and few folks even remember it besides the connection of having one its costars having had a very acrimonious end to her marriage with Mike Tyson! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 28, 2009, 11:28 am
