18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
At the nameless person who protested my dislike of this show. 1. Yes, there are some over 18 but there are still other kids who are under 18 and ALL of them are under incredible pressure from their parents to keep toeing the parental party line at least in public [and I wouldn't be surprised if the network also put subtle if not open pressure to keep those kids from risking the cash cow]. Yeah, the 'media' could stir a storm if any of those kids openly rebelled but they'd have to come home to face a bunch of music. What's more there HAVE been other 'reality' shows in which it got shown up that the producers were willing participants in at least keeping the less appealing parts of the 'stars' lives from being broadcast via careful editing, etc. As I said, stories telling of actual problems would more likely happen after the show had long been off the air than while it's airing. 2. Yes, they all seem nice and polite[seem being the operative word]. However; while I'm no fan of rude or obnoxious folks, I get cynical when parents smugly claim to have perfect kids. Often this means that the kids have just learned what to say or do whatever it takes to get their overwhelming parents off their backs rather than actual contented conformity on the kids' part. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 28, 2012, 9:46 am

Wasn't there a song called '57 Channels and Nothing's On' back in the 80's? Now there are HUNDREDS and even LESS on. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 24, 2012, 10:25 am

18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
Liva, Don't be surprised if one or all those kids tell VERY different stories than how they've been portrayed X number of years after this show is over. If adults want to make fools of themselves on 'reality' tv for all the world to gawk and jeer at the rest of their lives, that's their call but kids under 18 in those things are being EXPLOITED and I refuse to watch or support that. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 24, 2012, 10:22 am

Lance Armstrong - Celebrities
There's no joy in Mudville today, the Mighty Armstrong struck out via quitting the fight to clear his name and gave up his 7 Jerseys. Thus, regardless of whether one believes he cheated or was persecuted, this is a rather disappointing and sad end to the entire mess. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 24, 2012, 10:17 am

Michael Nesmith - Music Groups
I always liked the fact that, as goofy as his character WAS on "The Monkees", he never pretended to be a hick nor exaggerated/hid his Texan accent but was the closest thing to a voice of reason as could be had in that unreasonable world-and let's keep in mind that they ad libbed a LOT on the set so it wasn't entirely a writer/producer culmination. Also, he declared independence ASAP but evidently stayed friends with the others after the breakup. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 13, 2012, 12:52 pm

Cheer it or dis it, the one from August 12th's mine. For whatever reason, it cut off my sig when it posted. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 13, 2012, 12:44 pm

Bugaloos, The - TV Shows
This was one REALLY weird show whose only positive purposes were to show how far Martha Raye's career had fallen before she did those denture commercials AND it was alone amongst the Krofft shows did NOT deal with some kid/s trapped in another place against their will. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 12, 2012, 4:29 pm

Randy Travis - Celebrities
And the weird thing is that his lawyers claimed that his ex was trying to blackmail him with 'personal' stuff. What could be WORSE than having a naked drunken car crash in which he allegedly threatened arresting officers' lives?! Hello, he'd been pulled over before earlier this year for drunk driving so, if he'd have an iota of sense, he'd have have called a cab or gotten a limo instead of getting behind the wheel like that. I mean, he has deep enough pockets. Er.. forget that last sentence. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 12, 2012, 4:16 pm

A friend of mine went to work for their helpline -only to have his job outsourced to India! That's when it boned for me! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 12, 2012, 4:04 pm

CiCis Pizza - Random Topics
Parker, The ONE time I went, it smelled EXACTLY like my old high school cafeteria's 'pizza' and that was enough to get me to hightail it out there without trying to eat it. Why should I PAY for an imitation of what was foisted on me against my will back then? Plenty of GOOD pizza places in my city and even amongst chains, IMO it tanks. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 12, 2012, 3:59 pm

Olympic Games - Random Topics
I agree, kingbk! I'm far from an athelete myself but I like watching to see not just the strength but also the wit and skills involved in the individual competitors in some rather tricky events. Yes, I admit that I'm happy the US won the medal count but there have been plenty of atheletes from all over the world who have been amazing to watch in action -even if they didn't come close to winning. Oh, and since London's my fave overseas city, I never get tired of seeing some of the coolest spots featured in the coverage. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 12, 2012, 3:53 pm

Weird Al Yankovic - Music Groups
Parker, I recall that 'Hey Ricky!' vid! It was awesome and a good tribute that Lucy herself loved. What Desi's opinion was of it, I've never heard, though. Overall, Weird Al's never boned- if for no other reason that SOMEone needs to bring some humor into rock via the spoofs! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 31, 2012, 10:07 am

Olympic Games - Random Topics
Since I work during the time the Games are actually happening, I'm somewhat grateful for the time delay and the late night repeat. Yeah, I've watched a few events. Never thought that white water rafting could be so tricky! LOL. As for the Opening Ceremony. Cool trick making it look [to a five-year-old] that the Queen had parachuted in from a helicopter but nice that she was willing to go along with it. Wonder what they were thinking in having that countryside deal turn into an ugly industrial wasteland with smokestacks? Depressing! Also, why didn't anyone in the Indian Delegation tip off security re that crasher? Did they all think that someone amongst them knew her? So far so good for 2012, though. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 31, 2012, 10:04 am

Mermaids?! That channel REALLY has surrendered to the sirens' song of brainless shows! What happened to the awesome photo safaris of. .. actual animals? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 20, 2012, 8:11 am

Polly Holliday - Celebrities
Friedrich, You are spot on here. She's an excellent performer who I believe went into the profession not to become a star but for the actual love of the art so I don't think she has had too many regrets leaving "Alice". Also, amongst her other roles, she helped vocally coach Dustin Hoffman in "Tootsie" so that's why 'Dorothy' had a Southern accent. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 20, 2012, 8:03 am

To Tell The Truth - TV Shows
Not a bad concept in theory, Parker but how would the producers have found the real Mr. Cooper and gotten him to have come on the show? Like mice trying to find a random stray cat to put a bell on its neck to see if that was the stray cat that ate the cream! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 3, 2012, 9:55 am

Andy Griffith Show - TV Shows
It seems Sheriff Taylor died less than two months after Goober. Andy Griffith was far more brilliant a performer than many folks think. Take a look at his work in 1957's "A Face in the Crowd" - downright chilling and surprisingly relevant! Not only did this show bring happiness to millions of viewers wanting to escape their troubles for a simpler time and place but I have the feeling it did the same to its creator. RIP, Opie's Pa. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 3, 2012, 9:52 am

Sarah Jessica Parker - Celebrities
I'm not going to add to dissing her re her looks. However; for those who dislike "Sex in the City", it should be noted that she was an executive producer of this. In other words, this wasn't a hated chore foisted upon her by the studio that she was bound to do via contract but something she herself went the extra mile to put on the air. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 22, 2012, 8:26 am

Sheryl Crow - Music Groups
DolFan, I'm far from a fan of Ms. Crow's but, to be fair, Mr. Armstrong had already been in remission for the cancer for a few years by the time they'd met. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 22, 2012, 8:15 am
