It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - TV Shows
I can't say the show is appealing but I had fun gallivanting around the Independence Hall and Liberty Bell area picturing life in North American British colonies' most prosperous city before and during the Revolution! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 25, 2012, 9:38 am

Facebook - Websites
Travoltron, How about just 'defriending' the whole Facebook thing, then you wouldn't have to let these teapot tempest deals get you down! If other folks want to post incriminating stuff online for the whole world [including prospective future employers] to see online, that's THEIR deal but you don't have to participate and there are better things to do with one's time than a 'Farmville' game! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 25, 2012, 9:34 am

Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries - TV Shows
It never was any good. I say seek out the 1950's Hardy Boys serial on the original "Mickey Mouse Club" for as close as the REAL literary deal. Sherlock Holmes or even Miss Marple these series ain't but back in the day, they had their moments. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 25, 2012, 9:30 am

Homefront - TV Shows
THANK YOU, Parker Tillman! I tried to say the very same thing on the site that no longer exists but got shot down by folks saying that her doing all that made the show 'realistic'! The weird thing is that after this Joan of Arc Wannabee proverbially got caught with her knickers down was that she STILL droned these dogmas to her kids and yet not only did they not only not call her on her hypocrisy [as young people have been doing re hypocritical parents for ages ] but also her friends, neighbors,etc. treated her getting pregnant out of wedlock as a perfectly conventional thing. Yes, I know there have been nonmarital births from Day One but it was NOT considered the least bit conventional back in the late 1940's. This was but one of many instances in which they tried to inject 1990's POVs into a 1940's setting which all the costumes and hairstyles couldn't make legit. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 25, 2012, 9:27 am

Cracker Jack - Random Topics
Exploding Console, It seems they do so in my city- especially on the beltways. Although how they're able to open the box for the licenses while gabbing/texting on cells is a mystery but they don't channel those multitasking skills for such trivial functions as steering and keeping their eyes on the road. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 20, 2012, 10:18 am

Oops! Oh well. Thanks for the clarification, Jay D. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 20, 2012, 9:58 am

Agree with you here, stryker. Both shows went on for far too long. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2012, 10:11 am

Hello, Larry - TV Shows
stryker, Comparing a bad apple and a rotten orange, these shows are in a virtual dead heat re how bad each was from Day One - the addition or subtraction of the late Mr. Stephenson notwithstanding, IMO. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2012, 10:09 am

Cosby - TV Shows
Parker, That was good but my fave was the one in which Rudy and her silent friend misused one of Cliff's useless kitchen gadgets and wound up accidentally trashing the kitchen. Let's just say this DID happen in our house when I was a small kid but I by no means got off as scot-free as Rudy did. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:53 am

Baby, I'm Back - TV Shows
Parker, I read it,too, and have to admit that I'd had no idea that this went down much less that's what took it off the air instead of more audience members [like me] hating the concept. Kinda surprised because I always thought that 'Lamont' was the voice of reason on 'Sanford and Son'. Well, IMO the show's premise was awful and the 'star' played a creep but I have to admit that I thought the actress who played his long-suffering wife was gorgeous and the character of Luzelle [the mother-in-law whom the audience was supposed to hate and root against while considering the creep heroic] was played by the late Helen Martin who was ALWAYS good for laughs. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:48 am

Hello, Larry - TV Shows
Parker, Please note that I said Mr. Stephenson had left 'M*A*S*H' to 'wind up' doing this show not that this was the very first thing he did thereafter. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:40 am

Carol Burnett and Friends - TV Shows
Parker, IIRC, Mr. Korman left 'Carol Burnett' to do a sitcom called 'The Harvey Korman Show' in which he played this barely employed, obnoxious older actor who got on everyone's case. No surprise that it only lasted six weeks. In any event, he did NOT return to 'Carol Burnett' before it went off the air and the show limped along after the Van Dyke fail and departure with just the three regulars of Miss Burnett, Tim Conway and Vicki Lawrence. Thankfully, these three were by no means petty people and happily welcomed Mr. Korman back to join in several series' retrospects- not to mention a few episodes of 'Mama's Family' and Tim Conway and Mr. Korman worked together quite extensively until Mr. Korman's death to Miss Burnett's delight. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:37 am

Baby, I'm Back - TV Shows
Parker, They likely were trying to get milk anything possible for humor for the show- even something that back then couldn't have openly been joked about on TV back then. A comedy where the protagonist had abandoned his wife and tiny children without a backwards glance [much less a dime of support] -until he found out he'd been declared dead and she was about to marry someone else and THAT is why he came alive again? Not funny. Oh, and I should also mention that this gambling rogue made little if any effort to try to reform himself after his 'revival'. Fred should have put Lamont [the show's 'star''s iconic role] and the whole concept in the junk pile! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 11, 2012, 10:33 am

Michael J. Fox - Celebrities
Locutus, As sad as it's been to see him deteriorate from the Parkinson's, I think it's great he still wants to do what he can to earn a living and support his family and I hope he can do his impending show without any health setbacks. Oh, and for the record I've always liked his performances in his movies and TV shows. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 6, 2012, 12:20 pm

Tortellis, The - TV Shows
Parker, I agree with you about liking Dan Hadaya as a performer and Jean Kasem's character being too brainless to be endurable as more than a very occasional recurring character. Yeah, Lucy and Gracie Allen made good careers playing characters who often seemed to be the dullest tools in the drawer but Lucy's character was capable of being crafty [albeit these plans usually flew in her face] while Gracie's character had a logic out of synch from the rest of the world's. But Jean Kasem's Loretta just seemed too annoying to endure more than a few moments so this show was somewhat doomed. Oddly enough, though, Mrs. Kasem actually hold eleven US Patents for crib and canopy designs that she developed for her business so she may have acted too far in the opposite direction on the show. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 6, 2012, 12:16 pm

Profanity - Random Topics
Parker, I don't disagree with what you're saying in general. But, as far as "Stir Crazy" itself is concerned, IMO either term is six of one half-a-dozen of the other and neither term is something I'd be happy being called. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 6, 2012, 12:02 pm

Drew Carey Show, The - TV Shows
It started out as a somewhat believable workplace sitcom kinda spoofing/saluting the "Dilbert" comic strip but wound up being more cartoonish and one-dimensional than "Dilbert" itself! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 3, 2012, 9:46 pm

Golden Earring - Music Groups
Their "Radar Love" put Brenda Lee back on the radar so they can never bone, AFAIC! Let's hope she invites them to "Rock Around the Christmas Tree" if they're ever in town in December! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 3, 2012, 9:26 pm
