Andy Griffith Show - TV Shows
I have to agree that the show lost alot when Don Knotts left. Poor Jack Burns tried hard but was totally inadequate as the new deputy. And when they started devoting episodes to the character Howard Sprague, the downward slide REALLY started. (That character was possibly the dullest on any TV show of the era.) But the event that finally lost me as a viewer was the departure of Floyd the Barber at the end of the 7th season. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 6:10 pm

Jerry Springer Show, The - TV Shows
When the original, sensible format was abandoned after the first few years, due to low ratings, and replaced by what we see today, immediate fish-boning ensued. The same date - 1994 - represents the start of Springer's own descent into worthlessness. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 1:41 pm

Wave, The - Random Topics
Yes, it's irritating, but it's probably here to stay. It just makes me that much more determined to get front-row seats so my view is never blocked. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 1:27 pm

As much as I grouse about BTF, I am happy this place exists and have had a good time here. For that reason, I'm not so heartbroken over JTS's fate, since BTF would not exist if TV Guide hadn't done what they did to the other place. (Further proof that good things can sometimes come from tragedies.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 1:16 pm

American South, The - Random Topics
Hang in there, buddy. I can't do the prayer thing, being an atheist and all, but I can sure give you my best wishes for a speedy recovery from that mess. Southerners are extraordinarily resilient people, and I have no doubt that they will plow right through these difficulties - like Stonewall Jackson plowed through the Shenandoah Valley (against very heavy odds) 150 years ago - and emerge stronger than ever. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 1:08 pm

Tool - Music Groups
Just when I think I have DolFan pegged as a generic, utterly predictable rightwinger, he goes and writes a post like this and sends me back to the drawing board. (After all, M.J. Keenan is hardly George Bush's biggest fan.) My only problem with Tool: Only four albums and one EP in twenty years. TWENTY YEARS! (Granted, Maynard has all those other projects going on, but come on - some of us would like to hear album #5 before we die of old age.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 10:04 pm

U2 - Music Groups
Overrated. And they take themselves far too seriously, which to me equals BONE with a capital B. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 9:48 pm

Dream Theater - Music Groups
While i have a much more favorable view of thrash metal than Irbloom, I can't argue with his praise of Dream Theater, in total or in detail. John Petrucci is just fucking ridiculously brilliant on about ten different levels. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 9:42 pm

Rosie O'Donnell - Celebrities
Costar Dan Aykroyd deserved an Oscar - and maybe some Pepto-Bismol too - for pretending to find her hot. The poor guy's eyesight probably hasn't been the same since, especially if they had to do multiple takes. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 9:25 pm

Monty Python film series - Movie Series
I very nearly peed my pants with laughter at the space aliens scene in Life of Brian, coming out of left field as it did. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 9:15 pm

Nightmare on Elm Street - Movie Series
As I recall, Freddy doesn't say much in the first film. Maybe that's one reason it was the only one I liked; the more lines the guy had - and especially the more smartass lines - the less mysterious he became. Plus the original movie explored some interesting themes and cultural issues in a metaphorical manner, whereas the sequels were just straightforward, lowest-common-denominator splatterfests (and therefore boring as hell). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 7:08 pm

Weekend at Bernie's - Movie Series
One would think rigor mortis would have set in between the first movie and the second. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:51 pm

Star Trek - Movie Series
I guess I'm too demanding because I only liked The Wrath of Khan, The Undiscovered Country, and 2009's "reboot". The Voyage Home may be a fan favorite, but there was too much comedy for my taste. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:46 pm

Every Which Way But Loose - Movie Series
Any Which Way You Can was saved from boning by that epic fight scene between Clint and William Smith. Best damn bare-knuckle fight scene in movie history, baby! (Smith is one of THE coolest dudes to ever take up acting.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:27 pm

Exorcist, The - Movie Series
Yup - that one word says it all. Every sequel was worse than terrible. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:16 pm

Rambo - Movie Series
"It's over, Johnny - it's over!" And I say Thank Heavens, though I'll admit that the last one wasn't half bad. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:11 pm

Twilight - Movie Series
Travoltron, I apologize for not replying to you sooner. You would find yourself very welcome here. Most Forks residents have taken the invasion in stride, and more than a few have made some decent bucks from it. There are a couple of coldblooded carpetbagger businesses in town - basically outsiders settling here just long enough to capitalize on the Twilight craze - which don't have too many friends among the locals and won't be missed when they pack up after the craze dies down. And some of our high-schoolers pretend - not entirely convincingly - to be oh so jaded about it all. But most of us are pretty okay with the fans, who tend to behave themselves. By the way, the house which portrays the Official Residence of the Cullen Family belonged to my family doctor back in the 1960s and '70s; he was a mean-tempered old bastard, much more intimidating to my childhood self than any vampire could have been. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:04 pm

Rocky - Movie Series
The first was outstanding, the second was okay. The next three were no more than a favor to Burt Young, who would otherwise have ended up in a homeless shelter. The last was mostly good but thin in places. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 5:46 pm

Billy Jack series - Movie Series
Preachy, pretentious, hypocrisy-drenched garbage. Tom Laughlin's Ode to Himself, featuring his painfully ugly wife, a bunch of fake Indians, and lots of reeeeally bad acting. But some of the kung-fu scenes were passable, and I tend to take the Joe Bob Briggs approach of being easy on mindless crap movies when they feature decent gut-stomping and eyeball-removing scenes. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 5:34 pm

Avatar - Movie Series
I haven't seen it, nor have I any desire to. The more people gushed over it, the less interested I became. Never mind the politics; the story just sounded really lightweight to me, and snazzy special effects without a compelling story attached to it is........a serious waste of snazzy special effects. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 5:15 pm
