My son has been watching that...
can't stand it. I don't know where he gets this affinity for TV shows that aired before he was born. Some of them are okay, but a lot of them are crap. To me Three's Company is in that category (sorry).
I think multiple pilots are not uncommon.
GET A LIFE EVIE !!!!!!!!!
For crying out loud. It's 80's TV at it's worst !!!! (or at least it was when Don Knotts showed up)
By the way...
did you feel disappointed at last Sunday's Family Guy? It seemed run-of-the-mill to me. I don't know why I was anticipating something more daring or funnier or something.
Hope they are not "phoning it in."
(NT) Which episode was it???
wasn't that the season premier?
The daughter was watching with me. I turned it off about 10 minutes into it. Just like the Simpsons, every episode can't be hall of fame material
I'm not sitting around watching a Three's Company marathon!
Bad habit or not, I sleep with the TV on very low volume at night. So as not to wake up with an insatiable urge to buy a truckload of Kaboom, learn Spanish, etc., there's pretty much only TV Land or Nick@Nite that can be "safe". (Hence why I've seen WAAAAAAAAY too many episodes of Full House!)
However, I do find it surprising how controversial a show it was back then. I recall watching it with my parents and it was funny at the time. I still think John Ritter was one of the best physical comic actors of his time.
nuthin' t'be ashamed of lil' lady
i know people who plan there evenings around Lost...[/]
I will fess up to ...
... DVR'ing Law & Order and watching marathons of that Also Spin City.
(NT) You need some more sand box time.
Ritter was excellent at many things.
Physical comedy was his forte. I saw a hilarious episode of something where he did a 'first time on roller skates' bit.
And Norman Fell was the perfect landlord for looneys.
I think the controversy was because the Ritter character called himself gay in order to live with two women.
I was raised in a pretty strict household ...
... that's why I don't understand the controversy over that show because I recall watching the show (and laughing) with my parents. By that time stigmas over living together in non-platonic relationships were going by the wayside, let alone co-ed platonic roommates. And any gay jokes were routine (did you forget your purse, Jack hugging Stanley, etc.) -- there was never any deep sexual innuendo into actual gay sex or anything like that.
That's what I was thinking.
No matter on which side of the issue(s) one's on, there were already stronger situations going on on TV and in real life. Too much time on some people's hands IMO.
