The Gong Show
Friday, March 06, 2020      11 comments

The Gong Show, in my opinion, was one of the worst shows on TV, & it ran from 1976-80 on ABC. Chuck Barris was to blame, er, I mean he was the host. Amateurs compete in a talent show. Three celebrities would judge them. If the act was just too a... Read more

Police Squad!
Monday, March 02, 2020      9 comments

Police Squad! was a 6 episode parody of police dramas, shown in 1982. Sight gags, word play, & non sequiturs. I guess it was too much for television land, but it did give birth to 3 movies, The Naked Gun, Naked Gun 2 1/2, & Naked Gun 33 1/3. I ... Read more

Mighty Mouse
Wednesday, February 26, 2020      13 comments

Mighty Mouse is, brace yourself, another anthropomorphic star of a cartoon. Mighty Mouse (who looked more like a rat, to me), was originally named “Super Mouse” in his debut in 1942. His name was changed in the 8th outing to Mighty Mouse. There... Read more
