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

Does anyone remember what the intended prize was? I mean, if it was LAFF-a-Lympics, then maybe they should have made medals outta fools' good! Just sayin. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 3, 2012, 9:20 pm

Space Academy - TV Shows
Sorry, Arkady, but "Jason of Star Command" was a spin off of "Space Academy" since the opening narration clearly stated that the latter took place in 'a secret section of Space Academy' [obviously so to explain away using the exact same sets to keep their cheap budget even cheaper]. It was an okay time passer but I liked that Jonathan Harris actually got to play a respectable, heroic and honest leader even if Commander Gampoo was sometwhat pompous. At least the pomposity wasn't a dominant character trait- unlike with Dr. Smith. Oh, and the voice of Lucy Van Pelt [Pamelyn Ferdin] got to play to telephathic teen twin. Nowhere close to "Star Trek" or even "Space Ghost" but as I said it was an okay time passer. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 31, 2012, 10:17 am

Nudity - Random Topics
Parker, The irony of it all is that if you'd been around see the septuagenarian nudist when she was in her salad days, unless you were married to her,you wouldn't have been able to see her in anything less than long sleeves and knee-length skirts because she'd have been in her 20's and 30's under Franco who did his best to keep the Continental 'decadence' from getting a toehold in Spain going so far as to have police arrest and fine those who wore 'immodest' bathing suits. In any case, to each their own but one better have a thick skin if one opts to venture outside their bedroom or bathroom that way. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 31, 2012, 10:09 am

Sun Tanning - Random Topics
I'm with you, Parker on this. Even as a kid visiting the beach, I never could understand how these folks could just lay there and broil like lobsters whilst there were all kinds of waves to ride,shells to collect and castles to build from the sand. And now some folks put themselves in tanning coffins which puts how many extra UV rays into the skin?! No thanks! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 29, 2012, 6:36 pm

Kate Hudson - Celebrities
She's attractive but who'd have imagined that "Almost Famous" has thusfar proven prophetic re her own career heights? Oh well, maybe she can get together with Tahnee Welch [Raquel's daughter whose only notable work has been "Cocoon" movies]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 28, 2012, 10:07 am

Ovaltine - Random Topics
Parker Tillman, Simon Barsinister could have HAD my Ovaltine. Let HIM get all queazy from it. Hershey's chocolate syrup was what I liked for chocolate milk. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 28, 2012, 10:03 am

Political Correctness - Random Topics
I think it's proven to be a very poor substitute for manners and civility which were too thoughtlessly trashed in the name of 'freedom'. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 28, 2012, 10:00 am

Profanity - Random Topics
Parker Tillman, I think you've brought up an interesting argument in favor of it and I believe there are certain circumstances in which its acceptable. However; I'm curious if you believe there are any conditions you consider profanity unacceptable/ unnecessary or if there are any individuals worthy of respect by sparing them said profanity[e.g. clergy, employers, elderly, children, female relatives,etc.]. Here's a question for you: The other day I accidentally overheard some co-ed saying to someone 'it's easy as [s-word]'. Would you consider that to have been a necessary use of the term or would it have been more appealing to have used the original idiom 'easy as pie'? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 28, 2012, 9:56 am
