    The Andy Griffith Show

    And learned to drive. I think he flipped out over that more than anything. Aunt Bee was always having to give things up. She had to give up her prizes because her friends bailed on her (true she was yammering on too much but that didn't mean she had to sell everything). She gave up being on TV because of Andy and Opie couldn't feed themselves. She gave up the restaurant because even though it was highly successful and made her feel guilty/worried about it. She gave up flying after she soloed. The only thing she didn't have to give up was her car. I'm surprised Andy didn't arrange some bogus speed trap and confiscate it.

    Opie and the Spoiled Kid is great. "Oh. Well, don't get your clothes dirty." Andy and Opie's line deliveries are pitch perfect in that scene. I liked that a lot of the color episodes focused on Aunt Bee, but I felt sorry for her. Her she is trying to grow and experience new things and Andy is constantly yelling at her and telling her she's not capable (or worse not allowed) to do things. He just downright awful to her most of the time. I mean come on, Opie was getting older, Andy was getting serious with Helen, Aunt Bee's friends weren't that great (Clara was a straight up bitch) and couldn't let her get some fulfillment in her life. Of course the color era had some of the worst episodes. Howard moving to the Caribbean (WTF? Who in the writer's room thought that was a good idea?). Harold and Millie getting married (that whole thing had a creepy quality). Andy buying the laundromat. Anything with Warren.

    Yes, Howard will be along shortly (after a one-off stint as an insurance agent). Howard's ok, but I hate the addition of Emmett in season 8. The loss of Barney is huge in the color seasons, but beyond that the tone of the changes. Even when Barney returns it doesn't feel the same. Mayberry had a certain "other time" quality that made it feel removed from the era. You never would have seen something like the episode with the very "now" school kids wanting to put on a mod show or Russians holding a summit in Mayberry in the B&W episodes.
  5. That woman is a loon. I don't know why the co-workers, husband and kid haven't banded together a removed themselves from her toxic insanity.

    Best Baker In America

    The Worst Cooks / Baker shows don't have a host so Jason is a mentor. I was kind of shocked when they teamed Jason up with Shin Min for that Christmas Wars show. Shin Min basically ignored him. I think Lorraine will have a similar vibe with him that she does with Nancy.

    OMG that picture of Jackson. I don't think even a hot body makes up for that.

    Star Trek: Picard Anticipation

    It wasn't entirely clear, but I think Wesley came back from traveling by the time of Nemesis. I'm sure Sooner doesn't want to come back. He was never a fan of trying to deal with the Data doesn't age issue. Something may have changed in the past few years, but in the past he (along with Marina) was always the most willing to bring back his character. He played Riker on DS9, Voyager and Enterprise. He's directing the first two episodes so I wouldn't think a cameo is out of the question. I would be surprised if he or anyone from known Trek lore has any significant role on this show. They seem to doing the "let's throw in every damn thing related to Trek even if it doesn't fit the time period" for Discovery.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    Have no other existing relationships been revealed? I assumed there were multiple ones but they only showed the one they did so far because it was the last two standing in the Veto comp. Who would have thought the gay Broadway dancer wouldn't be the loudest and most on houseguest. BB, breaking stereotypes. Are Jackson's assorted metaphors, idioms and sports cliches as bad on the feeds as they were on the show or was that a trick of editing? Because it was exhausting listening to him for an hour. Well, that and the fact he thinks he the most dangerous person in the world because he some hot and jacked and awesome at everything. Puh-leeze, Blockhead. How can someone have GI issues and not wash your hands. I mean you should always wash your hands cause that's just nasty but if you're going to the porcelain throne that much you should be familiar with the procedure. If I saw someone go to the bathroom and not wash their hands (especially in a close quarters breeding ground cesspool like this) and not wash their hands I sure as hell would talk about it. Same with wearing the same shirt for a week and a half. I don't care if it's piling on when it comes to being disgusting like that.

    Worst Cooks In America

    As I commented on the Food Network Channel thread, this show has become like Hell's Kitchen. A (supposedly) new season is coming out every time you turn around but it's always the same thing.

    Unfortunately this isn't a positive for me as I couldn't stand Kamilla.

    The Great Food Truck Race

    I always side eye Food Network competition shows but I think food inspection was probably legit. A lot of towns have strict rules for food trucks and TV show or not, they're not going to let a lot of strangers roll into town and do what they want. As for giving the citation to Tyler, I imagine all the trucks are registered to Food Network making them the operator of record. The contestants are basically employees running FN trucks. If this had been the early days when contestants with established businesses were driving their own trucks that would be different. The only questionable to me is the amount. FN could make it whatever they want. Same as the deductible. I'm sure their insurance has one and I think it's a fair penalty because it's what you'd pay in real life, but the amount the use for the show can be completely arbitrary.
  13. Ugh. More Worst Cooks? This is as bad as Hell's Kitchen with presenting the same contrived bullshit 4 times a year (slipping in "celebrities" does not count as different). Christmas in July? Please, no. Do they think they're the effing Hallmark Channel now? Casey Webb is hosting a show? Was some clamoring for this? I thought Food Network already had the greasy schlub demographic covered. So is Family Restaurant Rivals the announced second season of Valerie's show just with all the contestants being restauranteurs or a totally different show? Was Symom friends with Bobby before he won Iron Chef? I never hear anybody complain about favoritism with him. They sure got new episodes of Restaurant Impossible together quick after those last 4 did well. Someday should tell 20 percent Network that sometimes less is more.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Those machines are so expensive because of the advertising. The commercials are on at all hours of every day on every channel. They're even on the retro TV channels which are the stomping grounds of incontinence, prescription drug and life insurance ads. I mean who looks at a channel the caters to people that find a trip to the Piggly Wiggly a challenge and says "hey, let's buy ad time there".

    BB in the Media: Outside the Fishbowl

    The outdoorsy theme isn't a bad idea, and they almost got a kitschy summer camp vibe but they got lost on the trail and veered toward hot mess.
