1960’s Batman TV Series Coming To DVD

Saturday , 5, July 2014 Comments Off on 1960’s Batman TV Series Coming To DVD

I was 10 years old in January of 1966 when the Batman TV series premiered on a Wednesday night. I was already a regular reader/collector of the Batman comic books and a regular viewer of the late 1950’s Superman TV series which was airing in reruns, so to say I was excited that night would […]

Wednesday , 12, March 2014 Comments Off on My Top 10 Things That Turn 50 In 2014

Over at Mental Floss, they have a post up about “50 Things That Turn 50 in 2014” and there are some really cool things listed that are turning 50 this year. I turned 9 years old in 1964, so I remember most of these (obviously NOT things like who was born that year) and thought […]

“Zombeavers” Trailer

Sunday , 9, March 2014 Comments Off on “Zombeavers” Trailer

I was reading an article about an otter attacking and killing an alligator in the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in Florida (who knew those sweet looking little otters could be so deadly?) and someone posted this trailer for the new movie, “Zombeavers”, in the comments. It’s silly looking, but also kind of funny, and […]

Charades

Friday , 21, February 2014 Comments Off on Charades

I’m sitting here right now watching last night’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” that I DVR’d. Bradley Cooper, Tim McGraw, Emma Thompson and Jimmy Fallon are playing a game of charades and I’m trying to figure out they know to do the word “The” or show that it’s a book, movie or thing or […]

The Beatles On The Ed Sullivan Show February 9, 1964

Sunday , 9, February 2014 Comments Off on The Beatles On The Ed Sullivan Show February 9, 1964

It was 50 years ago tonight. I was 8 ½ years old and my mom, dad and I gathered in the living room (my little brother was asleep in his room, as most 2 year olds should have been at that hour) to sit in front of our black and white TV to watch the […]

This post is inspired by something I saw online two weeks ago, which I’ll get to in a moment. John Schneider is an actor, probably best known for his roles as Bo Duke in the late 1970’s to early 1980’s TV show, “The Dukes of Hazard” and as Jonathan Kent in the 2001 to 2011 […]

Some Good Laughs On These Gag Reels

Wednesday , 22, January 2014 Comments Off on Some Good Laughs On These Gag Reels

If you’ve got the free time (I only had time to watch a few, though I could NOT watch the “Lost” reel because I hate that show) and need some laughs, these gag reels from normally dramatic shows can provide a healthy dose of humor, especially as a counterpoint to their usual serious scenes. Or […]

“As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!”

Thursday , 28, November 2013 Comments Off on “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!”

In my humble opinion, “WKRP In Cincinnati” is THE funniest TV comedy series to ever air! And the funniest episode EVER was “Turkeys Away”, which aired as the series’ Thanksgiving episode in the first season (1978). The story premise, which was based on a real-life event that happened at radio station WQXI in Atlanta, has […]
