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

Friday Night Videos - TV Shows
I used to sometimes watch this show after 'Fridays' on ABC. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 25, 2010, 10:56 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

Battle of the Planets - TV Shows
What was up with that kid Kie-op ? He interspersed bizarre sound effects with his speech. ie: "Garrrk ut doit doit doit. Nice Monkey!" WTH? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:42 pm

Murder, She Wrote - TV Shows
That show should have been called "Murder, She Showed Up." Come on. Every time that lady showed up somewhere, SOMEBODY wound up dead. If I were at a party or some such social function and saw her walking in the door- I would put down my martini, thank the host and high-tail my azz outta there. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:26 pm

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - TV Shows
I was a young teenager when this one came out. But after enduring the first one or two episodes of the second season- even Col. Deering's (Erin Gray) spray-on space suits couldn't keep me around. And the Hawk (Mr. Spock rip-off anyone?) character was just stupid and unnecessary. Thumbs up to whoever submitted the reason "Became a Poor mans Star Trek." That one gets my vote. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:19 pm

Lidsville - TV Shows
I was about 6 years old when this mackerel flopped into the boat. Even then, at 6 years of age, I thought it was pretty stupid. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:12 pm

Extreme Makeover - TV Shows
Of course, this is the show that spawned it's more successful (and somewhat less controversial) sibling 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. For those who may not remember this show: Each week one or two people were selected. These people typically had facial deformities, bad teeth, crooked or big noses, eyelid issues among other things. The mix varied per person. So these people would be taken off to Hollywood for a period of time where they were first worked on by high profile cosmetic surgeons and cosmetic dentists (as needed). They were also given a personal trainer to get toned up and in shape. They were sent to a high profile hair stylists and make up artists. Then they were taken shopping to completely revamp their entire wardrobe. At the end of the show, the contestant would then be unveiled to their spouses (if any) family & friends where they would all oooh and ahhh. I will admit that many of these makeover were pretty amazing and no doubt changed these peoples lives. I think that the ultimate boning for this show came when the producers of this program selected a person for an 'extreme makeover', then after building her hopes up, they reneged on the deal and dropped her from the line up because her surgeries, according to the doctors, were going to take too long to heal. A few months afterward, she took her own life. Television at its most heinous. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 1:18 pm

Bump in the Night - TV Shows
The humor on this show was surprisingly sophisticated. Funny on multiple levels much like SpongeBob and Bugs Bunny cartoons. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 12:24 pm

Beakman's World - TV Shows
I was in college when this TV show went on the air and I LOVED it. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 12:16 pm

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
I got quite bored with the Eastern Alliance. The Cylons were much cooler villains. As for Glactica 1980 being a reason? No no. I just don't think that reason belongs in the list for this show. Galactica 1980 was a separate show altoghether and did quite well in earning it's own Boning. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 12:13 pm

Adam Ant - Music Groups
Now I will say that he released a single in the mid 90's called Wonderful (I think the album was the same title) that was quite nice and a bit of a departure from his sound in the 80's. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 6:41 am

Makin' It - TV Shows
With only 8 episodes that aired, this show barely had enough time for a proper boning. What's funny about this stinker is that the theme song to the show (sung by none other than David Naughton- and great song BTW) was on the charts LONGER than the show it was written and recorded for was even on the air. LOL! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 3:22 pm

What's Happening Now!! - TV Shows
Couldn't get into this update show. It all felt forced to me. The magic of the original was gone. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 1:05 pm

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
I watched this show as a little kid so I related a lot to the younger characters on the show. Family Affair went on the air a year or so after I was born, so likely I was seeing it in syndication. But the one episode that really BTF for me was when Cissy decides to become a "weekend Hippie." !?! I mean, c'mon! Were people really doing that? I guess as sugary-sweet as that show was, this was likely as close as they could manage to get to a culturally relevant contemporary issues episode. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 11:44 am

Meatballs - Movie Series
When I was a kid, after seeing Meatballs (the original), I wanted to go to a summer camp like Camp North Star. BTW- how did they come by the title Meatballs anyway? I don't recall any reference to it in the film anywhere. Was it something that might have wound up on the cutting room floor, or am I just not paying close enough attention? I digress. But, like Police Academy, some bozo in Hollywood thought it would be a brilliant idea to capitalize on a hit and run it into the ground with lame scripts. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 11:16 am

Mask, The - Movie Series
The Mask was originally conceived as a horror film, but for some reason it was re-tooled/re-written as a comedy and made into a vehicle for the then up and coming Jim Carrey (up and coming as a big box office draw, that is). The first Mask movie was brilliant and funny. However Son of the Mask was just completely unnecessary. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 11:10 am

Dumb and Dumber - Movie Series
I LOVED 'Dumb & Dumber'. The whole idea of comedy about two utter morons getting innocently caught in the middle of some underworld criminal scheme and coming out saving the day was classic. It was written wonderfully, and outside of the two main characters, the supporting cast was not played too broadly and it was perfect. Well, a few years later (thanks to Star Wars chapters 1-3) Prequel mania hits Hollywood and they decided to bring back Lloyd & Harry as teenagers in what has to be,in my opinion, one of the CRAPPIEST origin stories ever written. 'Dumb & Dumberer.' It still boggles my mind how this-this thing even made it out of pre-production much less even to principal photography. The ONLY prop I will give 'Dumb & Dumberer' is that the guy who played Lloyd really convinced me he was a teenaged version of Lloyd Christmas... but that's all I give it. Dumb & Dumberer Boned the Fish- BIGTIME! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 11:00 am
