Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I loved "The Simpsons" in its earlier 3 or 4 seasons, but feeling that the show now relies too much on celebrity guest voices & "gimmick" themed episodes written to scoop up a few extra viewers. -- Submitted By: (samhokum) on April 7, 2010, 6:50 pm

Vegetarianism - Random Topics
I'm not a vegetarian & don't see a problem with it in general, but some vegetarians are in the same camp as those co-workers or people you meet on the street who **constantly** announce that they & their family don't have a TV in their home. I'm happy for you... Now, move on to the next subject. Please! -- Submitted By: (samhokum) on October 26, 2009, 9:33 pm

Joy of Painting, The - TV Shows
A great laid-back, educational program. One of the real reasons behind what public television was meant to be. R.I.P. Bob. -- Submitted By: (samhokum) on October 26, 2009, 8:54 pm

Jay Leno Show, The - TV Shows
NBC put everything they had into this show to get out of last place in the ratings? A test pattern at 10pm could suck in more viewers than Jay's new show. -- Submitted By: (samhokum) on October 25, 2009, 4:28 pm

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
I agree that saturday morning cartoons began to fade once NBC started pulling cartoons and replacing them with syrupy teen sitcoms or shows that were precursors to reality shows. A lot of disinformation from wingnut family/parental "watchdog" groups with their own agendas helped start this process too. You could turn on the TV news at that time & hear silly controversies questioning if the Smurfs encouraged witchcraft, or if Mighty Mouse was a cokehead and if Looney Tunes characters trained kids to be violent. Sadly, a fun tradition for kids (and kids at heart) lost in my opinion, due to a lot of scare-mongering spread by those groups. -- Submitted By: (samhokum) on October 25, 2009, 3:04 pm
