  1. All Episodes Talk: Raytown News

    I thought the same thing about Betty White playing Ellen. She even looks older in 'Mama's Family' than she does in 'The Golden Girls.' Eunice and Ed actually had another son named, Billy, but he was apparently dropped when 'MF' became a series. He's mentioned in the teleplay 'Eunice', though, but not shown. In 1978 - when Mama died in the 'Eunice' movie - Billy was in prison and Bubba was a run away.
  2. I always thought Mama would be like Iola if she hadn't married Carl. Possibly living with her elderly parents because remember when she was the Mayor of Raytown and worked at Food Circus as a cashier (Naomi's replacement) and both were disasters that she quit after a short while? She immediately went back to her housewife role saying it was easier than having a job. I got the impression she'd never be able to hold down a job if she were single like Iola.
  3. All Episodes Talk: Raytown News

    This may have been mentioned, but I purchased the Second Season on DVD with the tele-play/movie 'Eunice' on it and, apparently, 'Mama's Family' would be taking place around 1973 because that part of the play fit with the series. Bubby had ran away and was gone for a year, so I assume he ended up in reform school around this time. Unfortunately, Bubba's brother Billy, whom Ed called a 'sissy' wasn't in the 'MF' cast but mentioned in 'Eunice' but not shown. Naomi, a middle-aged drunken floozy, was also mentioned, but not shown. In 'Eunice' she was Eunice's friend and 'Phil' (played by Ken Berry, as Mama's son, instead of 'Vint') was almost like he was supposed to be gay and living single in New York as a writer. I always thought 'Mama's Family' seemed like it was set in the '70s like 'All in the Family' even though it was airing through the '80s. I assumed because it's set in the South that could be why it looked like it was a decade behind the times.
  4. S02.E06: James B.'s Story

    I thought that too. I used to sometimes follow him on Facebook. He was living in Galveston, Texas and had a job there as a bouncer, then the next thing he posted he was back home in South Carolina (or wherever he was from). I'm not sure what happened after that because I don't think he ever returned to Galveston or said why he left.
  5. In his obituary in the L.A. Times, as well as his Find-A-Grave page (which I think was taken from the obituary) they said he died of AIDS, then on Wikipedia they said a stroke. Most likely it was an AIDS related stroke.
  6. Teddy Wilson who was in 'Brother, Can You Spare That Jacket?' I was just rewatching this today and I had no idea he died. In the episode he tells Rose how tough it is out here because no one wanted to hire someone 54, but in reality he was about 44. He did look older than that, though, then when I read up on him it said he died of AIDS in 1991. That would make sense that he died at such a young age. Very sad.
  7. Season 2 Discussion

    I think this was the episode I was watching the other day on the Paramount Ch. Someone in the motel blew up their meth lab, thus blowing up the motel, and they all had to move in with Marjorie. This may have already been answered, but I thought Marjorie was living in an apartment complex, so how was she able to live with 20 cats in that small apartment and the management allowed it? At first I thought she had a house, but if I remember well she was living in an apartment then.
  8. All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    When I was reading the brief write-up online of what the episode was about I thought it was going to be about the serial killer in Maryvale (or what they dubbed 'Scary-vale'), also a Phoenix suburb. I had wondered whatever became of that and if the guy was ever caught. On Wikipedia they said one of the suspects was shot dead by a woman he tried to rob. She pulled out her pistol and shot him (made me think it was Meghan McCain and all the guns to brags about having, LOL), and the other suspect ended up in jail, then the killings stopped.
  9. All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    Tonight's episode about Dwight Jones was so disturbing. I can't believe she was paying $6,000 a month to him in spousal support and he was driving a Mercedes on top of it. I did wonder where he was getting his money from when they show started because they said he rarely worked and would sometimes sleep for days, not leaving the house, mostly going on tirades.
  10. Yesterday I was watching 'The Last Drive-in' on DVD, and I remember thinking it was really good when it originally came on, but now, years later, I wondered what was I thinking, LOL. Maybe it's the acting or some of the storyline that isn't that good. I did love Moon Unit Zappa as the tough girl, Sondra, that wanted to beat up Blair. "Look at her butting in in front of the line! Hey, Princess Di!! Outta the can!!" She was hilarious. They should've had her back still trying to beat up Blair.
  11. I was just watching the tail end of Christina's first episode from 2014 where she was checking out going to the nursing school. I saw a post she had on Facebook a few months ago where someone asked her about that and she said she still has never started nursing school, but hoped to soon. LOL! well when you consider that was at least four years she said she was going, so I dunno.
  12. All Episodes Talk

    I've been watching this on ME.tv and I forgot how bad it was. I'm now a little surprised that I thought it was so great back in the '70s when it originally aired.
  13. All Episodes Talk: You Did What?!

    I wasn't even aware this show was still on but I noticed they've been running adverts for tomorrows show (June 15,). Don't know if it's new or a re-run. I nearly always turn the channel when I see that it's on because, it's true, it jumped the shark a long time ago.
  14. S10.E09: Knee Deep

    Yeah, that's a good point because remember after Hurricane Katrina and people were using the FEMA money for all sorts of crazy things. Someone even used it to get a sex-change operation and they got caught. It makes you wonder if Dan and Roseanne won't get caught using the money for things not intended.
  15. S10.E09: Knee Deep

    There was an African-American lady that did work at Wellman's with Roseanne, but it wasn't Anne Marie, her name was Vonda.
