    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Even ocean cruises tend to be older people, except those specifically targeting families or younger persons. Not quite the "Love Boat."

    My favorite genealogy story was the patron who came in the library back in the day when we ordered census microfilm for people to research their family. She was looking up her great-grandfather and she wanted to know what an entry meant. After her grandfather's name, where occupation went, it said "Moron." The dangers of genealogy.

    Tonight (or tomorrow morning, really) ZLiving will be running the "Route 66" light-hearted episode "journey to Nineveh." Tod and Buz are going fishing in rural Missouri when they pick up sad sack Buster Keaton as a real-life Jonah returning to his family homestead, while his brother, rubber-faced Joe E. Brown, tries to retrieve the engagement ring his daughter lost before the local gang led by weaselly John Davis Chandler turn on them. In cameos are John Astin and Edgar Buchanan.

    "Route 66" season 2, episode 18, ""how much a pound is albatross?" Beautiful blonde Julie Newmar plays a motorcycle driving pre-hippie. Good change-of-pace episode, with Newmar standing out as one of the most memorable "Route 66" actresses.

    I mentioned "Alias Smith & Jones" in INSP earlier. It falls in this thread. BTW, ZLiving on Sunday isn't doing a marathon this week (except a movie "marathon"), but they will be showing "Space 1999: Alien Attack"!

    Maybe the bat hit some guy in the crotch, that was always the "highlight" on "America's Funniest Videos"...

    If Lifetime ever makes a Jeffery Epstein movie they could get the Trivago guy to play him!

    "Route 66" episode "...and the cat jumped over the moon" (season 2, episode 12) has both an almost unrecognizable Martin Sheen and James Caan in very early roles in their careers, playing juvenile delinquents. Also featured was stand-up comic Milt Kamen as a social worker. The episode was directed by the director of "Cat Ballou". The episode starts with Tod laughing maniacally, as if he's having a relapse from the previous episode's drug (LSD? presumably)-induced craziness.

    How often do you really need a coffee table with a refrigerator in it?
