    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    I suspect that while we won't force people to get vaccinated that it will become more difficult to be in that group. People are starting to realize that the problems we are having getting back to normal are the fault of the un-vaccinated and there will be things they won't be allowed to do and...

    No problem Neal. I tend to post in groups of stuff and for me it's fun as I've watched almost of these shows before and enjoy displaying the time lines and linkage. I too have probably at least another 100 on a list of titles and the only search I need is my little brain. I recognize that TV...

    I ran across this and had to include it. It appears to be a failed pilot. It is a hoot and that is appropriate because it's ... The Hoot Gibson Show As a side note, my dad tried to raise Chinchillas. (Yea ya gotta watch the show)

    Question. Do you like shows about questions? There are a ton of wonderful quiz shows of past just waiting to be re-discovered. I already shared that a top fav of mine was a quiz show Stump the Stars. If anyone is listening I'd buy the DVD of the series in a heartbeat. Here's a quiz program...

    I always thought a seal would make a great pet Russ, until I had a chance to get close to one. They smell just like what they eat. They have a fish breath that could make a sewer cleaner cringe. But they still are cute little fellers. :wub: Always enjoy your fun reviews and this one was no...

    Yea Howie, I wasn't a huge fan of Things or Quark when they came on but I grew into them. Perhaps when I got to see what followed and compared. S&Y I thought were talented but as you said - a one trick pony. It got old real fast. Fun for me to revisit for a short time but I wouldn't want to live...

    A lot a stars tried their hand at the small screen in the early days of TV. The divide between movies and TV had yet to start. Remember many of the stars were already doing radio. Martha Raye had her own show for a short time. These were story skits with integrated singing and dancing and guest...

    If the last two were not obscure enough for you this 1970's wonder probably is. The question - Can a mime make it on TV? The real life couple of Robert Shields and Lorene Yarnell actually got a short lived series with a little singing, dancing and a lot of mime. The crown jewel was the robot...

    Let's go recent - the 1970's. (Well seeing as I have been posting 1950's this is a big leap forward). Perhaps you will find these not so obscure but others may find them new. Mel Brooks took a shot at TV in this take off on Robin Hood. The series was short lived but he used some of the ideas...

    I saw Paul Revere & the Raiders at Disneyworld about 10 years ago. Great opening line. "For you older folks - Is he still alive? For the kids - Hey great Captain Crunch has a band." Thanks for posting Neal. I'm starting to feel lonesome here. ADDED: And I want no part of posting bad singers...
