Do Over - TV Shows
I recently discovered this old show. I do not ever recall catching it when it originally ran on WB. Time travel has always been one of my go to favorite Sci Fi sub genres so when I found old episodes of this show on youtube, I decided to check it out. I thought the premise was pretty cool. Disillusioned adult with a number of regrets in life is knocked unconscious in a freak accident then wakes up and finds he is a teenager again back in the 80s. I was interested merely for the fact that I myself was a teenager in the 80s so I thought the nostalgia factor would be off the charts for me and Do Over did not completely disappoint me in that regard. Honestly, who has not had that fantasy of being able to go back in time within your own body with your adult memories intact upon arrival and be able to use that knowledge to forge a better more fulfilling life for yourself as well as for those you care about most? Or to right some wrongs you know will happen or that you yourself might have committed? Sadly this show, as I understand it did not even make one full season. I managed to watch most of the episodes I could find and intend to eventually finish the series out at some point. Over all, I personally enjoyed it. In many ways it had a Ferris Bueller quality to it. In fact, they even did an episode where they spoofed Ferris Buellers Day Off. Late in its run you could kind of tell the point in which the show was in trouble and they were trying hard to pull in an audience. I think with the right writing team and somewhat better research into the era of the early 1980s, I think this show could have been a real winner. Unfortunately, over the course of the run of this show, it began to feel more and more like a slightly better version of a typical Nickelodeon show and for me, that is when the boning knife hit the flesh of the fish for this one. Side Note, in case you are wondering why I avoid using contractions or apostrophes and parentheticals in my comments here, it is because my submissions error out when I use all those things. Is it because I am on a Mac? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 23, 2017, 10:29 am

Ariel Winter - Celebrities
Okay Ariel. We get it. You are a grownup now. We understand that. So, you can stop all of the embarrassing attention getting hijinks that Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus already have done. Because, in the end, it all really just looks a little silly. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 15, 2017, 9:19 am

Sha Na Na - TV Shows
Floating a guess: I was old enough to remember that period. You had the film American Graffiti and the show Happy Days was quite popular. A lot of 50s nostalgia happening at that time. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 15, 2017, 9:13 am

Joe Dirt - Movie Series
Joe Dirt is a mindless comedy about this pathetic white trash loser who likely reeks of stale Budweiser, cigarettes and armpit funk who has a semi functional moral compass and just stumbles his way through life from one misadventure to the next. Nothing near Oscar material but its kind of funny in its own quirky, dirty Def Leppard tee shirt wearing way. POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT We find ourselves rooting for this strange protagonist as he defeats his enemies, gets the girl and wins the day. I mean they work so hard at setting this guy up as a total failure at the game of life you know thats what is bound to happen. I actually enjoyed this film. It was weird and stupid yet kind of different. Then years later, someone thought it would actually be a good idea to make a sequel. I questioned the wisdom of that decision, and after seeing Joe Dirt 2 Beautiful Loser, I now know that I was right to to question it. My question? WHY? JD2BL was so disjointed and forced I had to FORCE myself to finish watching it. The same goofy schtick only very poorly executed. I guess these actors just needed the money or something. But after the last ending credit rolled by, I thought to myself there goes 107 minutes of my life I will never get back. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 1, 2017, 5:09 pm

Meatballs - Movie Series
I re-watched this again recently, and I stand corrected about one thing. There is ONE meatball refrerence in the movie. Kinda one of those if you blink you will miss it sort of things. I think one of the nerdy guys says it when he calls someone a meatball. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 20, 2017, 10:46 am

IT Crowd, The - TV Shows
I discovered this Britcom several months ago on the local PBS station, but it was several episodes in and I wanted to go back and see it from the beginning. I was in luck as it was on Netflix so I binge watched it beginning to end. I laughed all the way through. What I loved about this show is that, throughout its entire run, it never once took itself too seriously... no very special episode of... type episodes. I did not even mind that the original CEO dies and his totally off the chain son steps in to take over the company. This show was a riot and as it only ran four seasons or four series as the Brits say with only 6 episodes each, it had no opportunity to bone the fish. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 17, 2017, 5:12 pm

Lab Rats - TV Shows
My son started binge watching this show on Netflix. Now, every time I hear that insipid theme song for the opening credits, I can feel my brain rot just a little more. Typical Dumb Adults, Smart Kids formula that pretty much every Disney sitcom follows.Granted, the show is aimed at the tween or pre teen demographic, but I can only take so much from the next room. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 12, 2016, 12:31 pm

Is there any way we can fix that Invalid Character error I seem to get periodically, or at least DEFINE what the invalid characters are so I do not use them? Nothing frustrates me more than working up a well thought out longish comment, only to have it rejected when I submit it because it contained an oh so mysterious so called invalid character. Then I cannot jump back to edit the comment. UUUGGGGHHHHHH!!!! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 27, 2016, 9:32 am

Are You Being Served? Again!/Grace & Favour - TV Shows
The ONLY reason I spent any time looking at this show was to see Fleur Bennett. She was irresistibly cute in a girl next door sort of way. Plus, I am a total sucker for chicks with British accents of any type so needless to say I really watched the scenes she was in. Otherwise, this rehashing of Are You Being Served was a total dud at best. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 12, 2015, 5:07 pm

Texas - Random Topics
I get the feeling that Dolfan is just being a little 'tongue in cheek' for a laugh or two but speaking as a lifelong resident of Texas (minus a brief stint in SoCal in the 90's) I'm on board with what Regulus and Pellrojo say. Every state has it's pros & cons and Texas is no exception. I like it here none the less. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 31, 2015, 11:39 am

Sam & Cat - TV Shows
I can be a bit of a conspiracy theorist at times and I really honestly think that 'Sam & Cat' was AG's little insurance policy if the new CD flopped. You know, CD flops, well there's always the show she could fall back on. It seems to me that when her music career started really getting some steam going, that's when we started hearing about trouble on the set. Just a theory. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 19, 2014, 5:51 pm
