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.

Guess we'll have to agree to disagree, because I liked that old loudmouth socialist for being exactly that.

Why are we having a political discussion on the TV topic?

So...overall...which cable network do you think has the best original programming and why?

I'm actually going to go with USA #1

and History Channel #2

(passing by the obvious HBO and Showtime...because to me, their shows are more like regular network programming)

What original programming do you like on Comedy Central?

There was an ESPN sort of comedy that I think was on Comedy Central for awhile that I really liked, but alas, again it was cancelled after a season or so...

Comedy Central ran a censored version of "The Big Lebowski" in which Walter (John Goodman) screamed at Little Larry Sellers:  "Do you see what happens, Larry?! Do you see what happens when you MEET a STRANGER in the ALPS!!"

meeting people in the Alps has become quite popular over the last 10 years or so for people from all socio-economic classes...of course the alps have been there a lot longer than that...Western Literature has Alps references going back at least 2500 years or so...

Speaking of censorship, it seems that the late night versions of The Daily Show are uncensored, at least the international version I saw last night with Angelina Jolie on CNN.

The kid surfer on John from Cincinnatti must be the worst actor ever.  Keanu can breathe easy now.

buxlaw, I'm sorry, I love Grandpa.  No logic involved, thus I can't argue intelligently.  Not that I could in the first place.  

Speaking of capitalism, still having fun with the book. My biggest fear -- that I would be George Costanza -- was allayed.

"John From Cincinnati" continues to circle the drain, surf meet turf and put it "Six Feet Under" ASAP.  Even WKRP in Cinncinnat looks like Shakespeare compared to this collosal brain fart of a series.  How do I loathe thee?  Let me count the ways, from Rebecca DeMornay's shrill mom to basically ever actor on the show.....

If the opposite of intrigue is WTF, I guess the identity of John and his connection to God, real or imagined, is more WTF for me, particularly when he gave the lesbian a heavengasm...sounds like some tweekers on the writing staff have "spun" this series out of control.

I've decided to wear my tinfoil hat for next Sun. to see if that helps...

Can't say that I did.  I mostly read about his gubernatorial campaign in the tabloids - and enjoyed it mostly from an entertainment point of view, rather than a "Go, Grandpa" pumping fist in the air point of view.  So yeah, I'm being pretty free with the word "love" and stuff, but I can't help it.  I like an old codger who won't quit, sometimes even ones with whom I might disagree on some points.

Now....what did he do on the radio show?
