  1. Madison Hildebrand

    This is probably old news to those of you more plugged in than I am. Madison and Cody broke up? I feel sorry for Madison. Not saying that Cody planned it this way, but he was able to latch on to Madison's celebrity, get screen time on a TV show, then snag a bunch of new followers for his modeling. Then they broke up. Hmmmmm. . .
  2. And even when the pantlegs are straight, they always seem to short. Like when a kid outgrows his jeans and has "highwaters".
  3. Dan: Dan the Man

    One thing that is fun about watching John Goodman now is you think, "He still looks pretty darn good!" But then you see a clip from the original show, and all you can think is, "Look how YOUNG he was back then!"
  4. S02.E23: Finding Fillion

    Yes! And that's too bad becuase newer viewers might be thinking, "Why don't they just move to a less expensive town?"
  5. S09.E21: The Escape

    That would be AWESOME! I know some people don't like stunt casting, but I think this show could pull it off. When the writers get a character right, they get it right!
  6. S09.E19: CHiPs and Salsa

    It's Mitch's ridiculous job hopping that gets me more than anything. First he had a good job at a law firm... that he just up and quit when his boss was making him work weekends. Then he joined Charlie Bingham's office. Which he also up and quit. Then joined the non-profit run by Aisha Tyler's character. Left that too. And now he's going to be a prosecutor? What? I used to defend this show when it comes to people just falling into careers with no training or background, but that is getting harder to do. And on the bolded part, a football coach is by no means a part time position. Nor is an acting assistant principal, Either one of those jobs would have his phone buzzing non-stop and keeping him up at night. Let alone both jobs.
  7. S02.E21: It's Not You, It's Me

    Reminds me of some of my friends who always act like they are so busy, but you never really see them DOING anything. The only thing that would have made that storyline even better is if Oliver teamed up with the neighbor Spencer. I could just picture the two of them "blowing the lid right off this thing!"

    Miss Chevious, that is very well said. Maybe you should change your name to Miss Landers.

    StatisticalOutlier, that is a very insightful post and it will have even more meaning when you know a little bit of behind the scenes info: The show was filmed during the post war boom of the 1950's and life was good! It was the first time that people actually had financial security and free time. So the challenge was not "how do we provide a warm home and enough food for our kids?" That was now much easier to do. The challenge became, "How do we develop proper values in our kids?" Hugh Beaumont especially wanted Ward and June to be people that parents could look to as examples of how to raise kids in this new era of prosperity. Knowing that, it gives you a new appreciation when you watch the show.
  10. S02.E17: All Coupled Up

    Here's a moment so small that most people won't notice it, so I want to share it with you all for when it comes back around in re-runs: At the very end, with Anna Cat's tagline, watch when the B roll for when they show Taylor and Tripp's reaction. It is a genuine, "Nice Job!" reaction to her getting the line just right. Like most people, those two actors are very attractive when they have a genuine smile. I'm glad the producers left that in there.
  11. Come and Knock On Our Door: All Episodes Talk

    Placing this episode into some historical context will help explain why Three's Company was so popular. (Pulls down screen and turns on overhead projector): The late 1970's and early 1980's were a rough time in America for many people. Words appeared that we had never heard before: Layoffs, Downsizing, Misery Idex. Boy, did we need a diversion! And what's this? Three's Company is on tonight? Starring three young, attractive and carefree main characters, surrounded by well-meaning friends and landlords who always seem to generate one hilarious misunderstanding after another. And tonight's episode, Jack's biggest problem in the world is trying to balance two dates at the same time. Heck yes! Count us in. For a half hour a week, we could forget all of our problems as we come and knock on your door! Thank you, Three's Company, for a very welcome half hour diversion.
  12. All Episodes Talk: A Very Brady Thread

    Thank you, Maverick! Did you hear that the producers agree with you? Apparently, viewers were expecting a comedy and not the heavy stories and this suprised the network. Their solution? Lay a laugh track under some of the dialogue. If you watch any of the episodes, it's jarring to hear the laughter after a straight line.
  13. All Episodes Talk: A Very Brady Thread

    And he got his chance. You can still see episodes of The Bradys online. This started out as a series of made for TV movies but then changed to become a weekly series of one hour episodes. They were not afraid to take on serious issues: Bottoms Up (Episode 4): Everything seems to be going well for the Bradys: Jan has taken over management of her father's architectural firm; Wally is serving as Mike's right-hand man; Cindy may have a job promotion; and each of the Brady boys are busy with their jobs. Marcia feels left out and - when she is unable to get any job interviews - wallows in self-pity. When her parents' advice doesn't pan out this time, Marcia finds the only thing she can turn to is the bottle. Which she does ... repeatedly. In a drunken haze, she winds up embarrassing Mike at a press conference. Wow!
  14. Original Flavor Episode Talk: Dinner at Rodbell's

    Very good point. The show did a good job of demonstrating a fundamental problem between Mark and David. David does not respect what Mark does. He thinks that getting dirty and greasy at a job is not as lofty as having a job where you can use your intellect to create something special. And Mark does not respect what David does. He thinks that hard, physical work is honest work, where creative jobs are not.
  15. Bobby must have felt this way as well, since he was keeping his race car driving a secret from them. I enjoyed the dinner conversation when each of the kids stood up, one by one, and said, "You must be talking about ME, Dad. Because . . ." and they would admit that their lives were not quite as pefect as they were pretending.
