  1. Just a observation about safety commercials/PSAs: the one i saw used a kid that looked a bit ...mature... to be making the mistake of wandering out of the front garden into the road where she's hit by a car, Intentional?
  2. Very few people, male or female, die on their own terms in the real world, so saying a woman has to die on their own terms to be liberated or feminist is more than a little strange.

    My Three Sons

    I think with the "retconning", that if M3S had continued, Barbara would have been changed to be the ONLY Mrs. Douglas, and Dodie would have become Steve's biological daughter.

    Why did they never do a Christmas episode? Would have been perfect for the Dodie era.

    The Brady Bunch

    I'd like to see Millicent (Melissa Sue Anderson) somehow meet Mary Ingalls (Melissa Sue Anderson). Just because it would be fun...

    Little House On The Prairie

    You have to wonder about Baby Grace Ingalls still being seen on-screen in that high chair long after she's um too old to be Baby Grace anymore. A few more years like that and it would remind viewers of those grown adults who get adult sized baby furniture made for them.

    Lisa was God Squad like Kirk Cameron in later Growing Pains.

    Didn't Natalie only get that storyline because Blair's actress was full-on God Squad?

    You're right. Seana Tapp is an example of a beautiful young white child who never got the media attention some other missing white children get, even in Australia. She and her Mum (also murdered) only got five small stories that wouldn't have amounted to a scrap of newsprint in that first year. The story was only revived over thirty years later.

    Something that needs to die: "Missing/murdered white girls are always obsessed with by the media!" Ever heard of Seana Lee Tapp?

    @Bastet @Camille @auntlada I didn't realize that that the child actress is wearing white stockings, not pantyhose. Blame that mistake on the IMDb discussion from years back plus someone there mentioned the Christmas stereotype of female children in velvet dresses and white pantyhose and black shoes. Ellen Hamilton Latzen's mom said the "Family Ties" costume people also insisted on doing something girly with Ellen's short hair (putting a flower in it). the episode was filmed just after Fatal Attraction and the stupid "is it Allan or Ellen?" remarks.
  12. Yeah legally and formally Meghan is Princess Henry. And Catherine is Princess William. That's been neglected since the 1970s, outside of wedding invitations.

    Christmas-themed episodes where they overly femme the main little girl character(s) Take this screen capture of Ellen Hamilton Latzen (as Michelle) in Family Ties, in velvet dress, floppy collar, and white pantyhose. Ellen's mom told me that the costumers insisted on that outfit. All she could say was "who dresses their kid like that to go to the mall?"
  14. As i mentioned, there was a HUGE stink in 1981 when people were reminded that Diana would be Princess Charles and not Princess Diana when she married, but as i said that's how MRS formally works and why that's been neglected since the seventies.
