Howdy folks!As you know, I have a poll going on my blog to see what show I should add to my collection for review. But it occurred to me, based on views versus responses, that I forgot something important - you have to have a Google account to post. Not everyone does. True, it's free, but why should you have to create an account just to respond to a blog post?To be clear, the poll is NOT invalid. Everyone who has replied, their votes still count. But I am opening it up a little bit - you can reply here and the votes will be added to the total.So, one more time, here are the choices:Choice 1 - The Howdy Doody Show. I really have not done children’s programming on the blog up until now and given popularity over time, this is a good trial balloon for more kid’s stuff in the future.Choice 2 - Kukla, Fran and Ollie. Another kid’s show, but still at least somewhat known. Again, measuring interest now and for the future.Choice 3 - The Gene Autry Show. I focused on Autry heavily in the early days of the blog and, now with the complete series available, it’s logical to come back to it. However, it is a show I am not sure if my audience is that interested in coming back to Autry, given the show rarely averaged above twenty views every post. To invest in a show that still has three years in it and have that level of interest does not make a ton of sense. But, never know.Choice 4 - Cavalcade of Stars: Honeymooners segments. This is what leads into The Honeymooners proper show in a few years. I am just not sure if the audience is as strong for the 15 minute bits as it will be for the single season show, especially given this will be spread out substantially.Choice 5 - Dragnet. This is the classic 1950s version of the show, with only about 20-25 episodes out there in the public domain right now. I have zero problem tracking them down, I just am testing audience mood to see if it is worth doing.Only replies prior to 12 PM Eastern time on Saturday, July 12, 2014 will be counted.So, let's hear it!
