Someone wants "Senior Member" really bad.

I'm not judging anyone...particularly in this particularl back and forth...but this made me smile.  I've seen that much more with certain others on the forum...

I'm just happy to get an hour or two a week of gree time where I can banter a little--so you guys will have no difficulty passing me by and leaving me far in the dust...

harrie,

I preferred The Adams Family (The Movie) lest we forget Raul Julia. And, look what happened to Wednesday! That girl turned out to be a real killer and was certainly precocious back then.

Alias Smith and Jones should have an asterik, though -- in our house, anyway, the Peter Duel episodes are the "real" ones.  Any of the post-suicide, Roger Smith as Hannibal Heyes episodes are bogus; and I think the actors even thought so. 

Sort of like Bewitched...

madupont, I'm very confused.  Do you mean Lisa Loring, the original Wednesday Addams?  As far as I know, she married a porn star and did a soap but hasn't killed anyone.  Or do you mean Christina Ricci, who has a fine acting career; and how does that make her a killer?  Or does killer = good actress?

Nobody could beat Ricci in "the movie" from somewhere between 1991 and, 1994 is too late actually, as I recall. I knew right then we had a winner of the spunk awards. She is strangely a forerunner of little Bobby Ilyer who played AJ with the same attitude for The Sopranos.  It's those cute little square heads and the disdain in the eyes and the lip.

I thought she was a winner with Johnny Depp as, The Man who Cried, where she plays a young Russian from the shtetl who has survived a pogrom and meets up with Cate Blanchett in an Italian Opera company run by John Turturro either in Paris or on her way to Paris where the gypsies discover she has a voice and sings in "their key". It is performed with a lot of zest. Depp is the guy who rents out his horse and leads it on stage for the performances at Turturro's opera company where the horse authentically takes a dump on stage.

The Man Who Cried did have another memorable moment when Ricci's character is furiously pedalling past the Eiffel Tower glowing in the night when suddenly gypsies appear on horseback...

A few moments of interest, but otherwise, not all that.

I much prefer the original Darren on "Bewithed," and Elisabeth Mongomery was really hot especially as the evil twin, same way with Jeannie's doppelganger, throw in all the Angels ever, Suzanne Somers, and you've got a pretty good jbottle TV fantasy girl list.  And of course the four way with Heather Locklear, Shatner, and Zmed.

I like Munsters better now than I did when I was a kid -- and mostly for Grandpa

grandpa al lewis ran for governor of new york as green party candidate.  by now, the old loudmouth socialist has had the good wisdom to STFU and drop dead, as i had long wished him to do.

Speaking of NYC, now that Bloomberg is launching a Third Party Challenge as an Independent, what if he ran with the understanding that he would pick Fred Thompson as VP, disaster or genius? 

That could be interesting, Hilary/Richardson, Bloomberg/Thompson, and Romney/whomever...

Actually, Romney/Thompson could work pretty well as a moderate ticket with a Southern strategy, I think that's the sweet math for the Republicans.

Anyway, off topic, but the TV will be innundated with this shit for the next 15 months so I guess it's of fair relevance.

I'm planning on voting Dem., but think Hilary's negatives are too difficult to overcome and feel that she is a spineless politico without even the conviction of her nearly equally calculating and poll-sensitive husband.

Gosh, jbottle, and someone just asked me why not vote for her when I said I wish someone would tell me why we should.  If only you'd been around. My thoughts exactly, but instead I had to make up some positive excuses like whom she has not done anything for where she could have in Arkansas and New York state; starting off  however with the miserable  teasing the public with her plan for a health care program at the time of her husband's campaign for the presidency which I knew right then was a put on.  it's still a put on, plus she had gotten --well, "dumber" ?  I didn't even mention her bad manners towards her opposition within in her party.

She's a wimp on the war stance; you know she is actually against the war and so when she voted to fund it, unlike Obama, that it was a political rather than personal decision.  I mean, what if the war had been a success???  Where will I be then?  Somebody needs to run on being a straight-shooter, hell, that's the only reason Bush had a chance, as weak as he was intellectually, he wasn't completely full of shit on every decision, he's a decider, a bad decider, but still...Obama needs to keep talking the talk and test it out and see if it works and go for broke.  When the Gore and Kerry campaigns failed to punch back like fighters--ultimately all Gore had to do was say "Okay, yeah I admit it, I didn't invent the internet, but ask George Bush about his DUI that disappeared, you ask him about his military records that disappeared and you'll figure out who's got something to hide..."  all Kerry had to do was call George Bush a coward for hiding behind Swift Boat ad campaigns when he was the one who actually served his country by going to war.  Ultimately, I was against the war, but you can look at my military record and nobody can find George Bush's service records and that's non an accident.  The plain fact is that I went to war and he went to vacation in Texas and never even showed up for Guard Duty."

I wanted to slap Kerry in the face and tell him to get good and mad, it's exactly that measured boring tone when somebody called you a liar that made you look weak.  If Al Gore had been more of the funny sarcastic guy instead of the professor guy, he would've cleaned up.  I still think he won anyway, I mean when you've got 20,000 retired Jews voting for Pat Buchanan in FLA, it doesn't take a scientist to figure out that was a good old fashioned screwing...

...but ultimately the Supreme Court was the most spineless of all electing to punt instead of examine the damn evidence, you want to put war dead on someone's doorstep, try the Supreme Court if your going to trot out Nader as a scapegoat, trot out the lack of courage and counter-punching by the candidates themselves...

...as much as Hilary lacks moral courage to stand by what we know to be her actual convictions, maybe she can only win by being moderate after all, but I have no respect for her, and will vote for her because at least, like her husband, she know how to punch back, that in itself will be a pleasant surprise...the frustration of watching Gore and Kerry fail to defend themselves was like watching someone drown and while holding a life saver thinking that, oh, he has people paid to throw twenty of those...
