Dora the Explorer - TV Shows
My 6 year old falls over laughing when I start lampooning this show. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 4:18 pm

Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures - TV Shows
His show is great. However, when he makes appearances on other shows, like Letterman or something, the man is in serious need of some ritalin. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 4:13 pm

Shasta McNasty/Shasta - TV Shows
With a title like 'Shasta McNasty' I had a feeling this was going to be a one season salmon. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 4:06 pm

IMDB - Websites
Well, I hate to disappoint you Chubby Rain- but a celebrity, I am not. I tried- God knows I tried- but didn't make it (though there is an unverified report that one of the movies I was in has been seen on German television). Alas, I left 'the business' a little over a decade ago. I have only two acting credits to my name on imdb and the remaining few were for makeup artistry. Yes, I am now living a quiet life-away from the glam, the glitz, the big city and bright lights. All that's behind me now as I happily work in the pre-press industry. ;) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 3:11 pm

Real World, The - TV Shows
The problem with these "reality" shows is that they aren't real from the get-go. They cast these things like any other kind of TV show. They're looking for just the right kind of chemistry between the participants to make the show something people will talk about. In the case of reality shows, they use psychologists as ad hoc casting directors. They master-mind scenarios (conflict, romance, etc) by putting together just the right mixture of different types of people. Thus the shows write themselves. As for The Real World, the true downward slide was the Puck incident. After all the buzz that got, it seemed that the producers of TRW just went crazy with the conflict premise and the show became extremely negative and kinda depressing to watch- So I stopped. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 2:41 pm

Hercules: The Animated Series - TV Shows
And what is it with all of the horrible, straight-to-DVD sequels being "Instant classics"? Disney has made me hate that phrase with a passion. I cringe every time I hear some pukey announcer voice-over on one of these ads "blah blah blah AN INSTANT CLASSIC blah blah blah...." Disney, please cool it with the whole Instant Classic thing. We're onto your Jedi Marketing Mind Tricks. It's bogus and we know it. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 2:16 pm

I would rather watch fat guys in bad Darth Vader costumes dancing in shopping centers than see the Numa Numa guy again. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 12:18 pm

Second City Television - TV Shows
This was was one of the more clever sketch comedy shows on the air and it launched a lot of big careers-most notably John Candy (RIP), Martin Short, Rick Moranis, and others. What was great about this show was how they tied all the sketches together with vignettes of a running gag throughout the episodes. The only time this show came close to Boning the Fish was when the popularity of the Doug & Bob MacKenzie, Great White North sketch really took off. However, the beauty (and genius) of it was that they knew were in danger of BTF (or whatever they were calling it in those days before the internet) with this bit so they turned it on it's head and totally made fun of it and then pretty much retired Great White North. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 12:07 pm

Bill Murray - Celebrities
I don't know what he's like as a person in-person, but he never fails to entertain me. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 9:50 am

Charles in Charge - TV Shows
I think the Bibleman thing was a limited gig. Seems like he ran on some more tough times after that and tried to take his own like a few years ago. I read that he's pulled his life back together, is now, more or less, out of show-business and now works as a financial consultant or something like that . http://www.kmbc.com/news/22298368/detail.html -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 9:45 am

Jefferson Starship - Music Groups
For me personally, Jefferson Starship BTF when they simplified their band name to Starship and recorded that wretched song "We Built This City- on Rooooooock and Roooooooooll....". Sorry, but I feel that when a rock band starts writing songs that are self-referential to the genre of music they are in, that's when it's time to hang up the microphone and run to the store for some malt vinegar and some coleslaw. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 9:36 am

IMDB - Websites
Yes, it does seem that IMBD.com has some priorities a little mixed up. They seem to put an enormous amount of energy into scrubbing the message boards, but yet- speaking as one who has an imdb listing, I have been trying for YEARS, unsuccessfully I will add, to have some inaccurate info removed from my listing. To date- NADA! Oh well. Though imdb.com has SOME use to me in my world (and can be entertaining at times), based on my personal experiences with it, I don't put too much faith in all of the info I read there. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 9:22 am

Norm Show, The - TV Shows
Norm MacDonald is HIGHLY under-rated as a funny man. Loved him on SNL and I used to watch The Norm Show when I could find it. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 26, 2010, 12:25 pm

Welcome Back Kotter - TV Shows
Welcome Back Kotter's best seasons were well behind them when some Mensa member somewhere decided to drop in that Southern guy played by Stephen Shortridge. I would imagine that this was a last ditch rescue stunt for the show as I'm pretty sure that 'The Dukes of Hazzard' were pretty popular by that time. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 25, 2010, 12:23 pm

T. J. Hooker - TV Shows
I remember the episode where Leonard Nimoy guest starred as a detective whose daughter is the victim of a brutal crime. I don't recall the actual original air-date, but I'd bet this aired during 'sweeps week'. An obvious ploy to boost the numbers by pulling in the 'Trekkie' demographic who were just itching to see Kirk & Spock together again! :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 25, 2010, 11:53 am

Make Way for Noddy - TV Shows
My daughter watched this show when it ran on PBS several years ago. It caught MY attention because of the cute British chick that hosted in between segments (Naomi Wilkinson, I believe). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 25, 2010, 11:25 am

Help!...It's the Hair Bear Bunch! - TV Shows
I was a little kid when this one came out. All I really recall about this one was all the bears live at the zoo, had big 'ol 'guy from Room 222' afros, wore these funky psychedelic vests and they all rode an invisible motorcycle. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 25, 2010, 11:00 am

Fridays - TV Shows
In 1980 SNL was hitting rock bottom. The new cast was boning it big time- and then came 'Fridays.' I remember seeing the promos for this new sketch comedy show, and it looked pretty funny. I watched it's debut and became an instant fan. I was a young teenager at the time and a pretty straight-laced kid at that, so I'm sure if my parents knew there was so much drug and sex themed humor on this show- they'd have locked me in my room after the 10:00 news. The humor on this show was pretty cutting edge and, compared to SNL, the production value was much slicker. Also, like SCTV, they were not afraid to do longer, more drawn out sketches (ie The Ronny Horror Picture show, featuring Ronald Regan as the Sweet Transvestite'). Also, we were introduced to the sheer bizarreness of a pre-Kramer Michael Richards (may his career Rest In Peace) and his work was certainly some of the funnier stuff on this show. This show, IMO was poised to take the crown of Late Night Sketch Comedy but then the network suits had to go and mess it up. First they pushed it back later after Nightline then, in a desperate attempt to save the show, they deposited it in a Prime time slot (this was definitely not a Primetime friendly show). I keep hoping that one day they'll actually release some or all of this stuff on DVD. I would definitely be interested. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 4:48 pm
