  1. Thanks, biakbiak. I'm a guy and I was wondering the same thing as mansonlamps. I thought maybe there was a typo in the article. Good for you, Ariel! Never mind the idiots in the IMDb forums. And good for you, Julie Bowen, for being the good adult for Ariel and Sarah. Claire Dunphy still drives me nuts sometimes ...
  2. There have been a few boys on Disney Channel shows playing stupid and/or unattractive characters.
  3. A couple of posts have had the word "illegal" in regards to Maya and Josh. What is illegal about a 14-year-old dating a 17-year-old? Dating is not the same thing as having sex.
  4. Quinn Martin (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0552918/?ref_=fn_nm_nm_1) was the man behind QM Productions. In the 1970s alone, he was the executive producer of The F.B.I., Cannon, The Streets of San Francisco, and Barnaby Jones, plus a few others. Each episode of those series had a voice-over introduction which gave the title of the show, the names of the leading actors as well as the top 2 or 3 guest stars (with head shots), and the title of the episode.
  5. There's something about Les's sign-off: "This is Les Nessman saying good day, and may the good news be yours."
  6. And yet another from Les: "I don't know if you've noticed, but there certainly are a lot of Negroes in sports."
  7. James Gregory (Inspector Luger) had the greatest delivery, didn't he? I can still hear him saying, "Bah-ney. You oughta be out on the street, whipping the citizenry inta shape." Even in the '70s he looked old-school with the hat. Most of the cast had distinctive ways of speaking, now that I think about it.
  8. Birthday greetings to Lucille Ball, who was born on this date in 1911. In the 1955-56 episode "The Passports," Lucy Ricardo (nee McGillicuddy) was said to have been born in 1921. Will there be a surprise party at the Tropicana?
  9. Those of you who say, "Some white girl," when the opportunity presents itself: Do you say it in a falsetto voice like Anthony's? The real-life Cindy Birdsong was a member of Blue Belles (early '60s with Patti LaBelle) before replacing Florence Ballard in the Supremes in 1967. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cindy_Birdsong for more.
  10. The four major German roles (Klink, Schultz, Burkhalter, and Hochstetter) and LeBeau were played by Jewish actors Werner Klemperer, John Banner, Leon Askin, Howard Caine, and Robert Clary. Caine was American-born-and-raised, the others fled the Nazis in the '30s and '40s. More details at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hogan%27s_Heroes
  11. I didn't remember the school being named in the 1st season of BMW. Cory, Topanga, and Shawn's class were 7th graders entering John Adams High School, so they never went to a middle school as such. John Quincy Adams was the son of John Adams, which is a nice parallel to GMW being the child of BMW. A pilot's purpose is to introduce characters and relationships, so I don't dissect them too strongly. It's been a longer wait than usual from the first news of this show to the airing of the pilot, so I was afraid it'd come off as being not worth the long wait. I think it's promising. I buy i
  12. I'm surprised to be the first to post this here. Meshach Taylor, who played Anthony, died of cancer the day before yesterday. ,https://tv.yahoo.com/news/meshach-taylor-star-tvs-designing-women-dead-67-144500210.html

    She was starting to come into her own by the last season. Part of "who she was becoming" would have had to do with her bat mitzvah preparations; I seem to remember that being mentioned at the time. Who was the boy she said was a "doodyhead"? I think he was related to Nina.

    IMDb has Vivien Cardone's birthdate as April 14, 1993, so she's 21. Yep, she's all grown up ;-) Thanks, maculae, for the reunion links. The cast all seem to enjoy each other's company.
