    The Sounds of Our Lives (formerly General Music Discussion)

    Any Australians here remember the original (Johnny Young) Young Talent Time music/variety troupe? Here, from a YTT concert in Sydney, is an example of how NOT to dress your pre-teen female singer:
  2. Most of I Remember Mama is lost because it went out live and the West Coast kinescopes were mostly junked. That's why it's largely forgotten today. The last season was the only one committed to film, and it wasn't enough for syndication.
  3. Do you know how hard it is to get those human suits onto the lizardmen? Then once you've got it one its even worse trying to get it off again. And you have to go shopping for different human suits, and soon you just kinda grab whatever's hanging at the front of the closet. Also the zipper was stuck when we tried to switch. Uh...I mean...nothing to see here. Move along. Move along.
  4. This is more an "New Media trope" but the notion that most women who dressed as men and acted the male gender role were the same as modern trans men. When they use "they requested no autopsy!" as their evidence, they leave out that this is the same era in which Queen Victoria's diaries and letters were permanently altered or destroyed to protect her reputation.

    My Three Sons

    So, will Dodie in Season 10 be a delight... or a dud? Eh, @MushMarch

    Say What?: Commercials That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

    I once worked at a radio station whose on-air brand was "the Beaver". It was, um, aimed at suburban housewives...
  7. Melissa should be dressed and made-up a lot more like JonBenet Ramsey if it was a real 1990s child beauty pageant. She should be a lot more "girlied up" as JonBenet was just a couple of years later.

    Unpopular Opinions about Music

    I never really "got" Wolfman Jack or the Guess Who's hit song about him. Wolfman Jack was a one trick pony who was lucky enough to be "in the right place at the right time". RIP for a relatively young death though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfman_Jack https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clap_for_the_Wolfman

    TV Tropes: Love 'em or Loathe 'em

    At least the show's Jonathan was spared the fate of his real life counterpart who died in the Lockerbie bombing.

    TV Tropes: Love 'em or Loathe 'em

    Maybe its empowerment if she kicks the man out?

    The Brady Bunch

    Denise Nickerson died a few weeks back. Deliberately took an overdose of her medication - apparently she was tired of living in her stroke-ruined body. Another Brady guest star gone to the San Fernando Valley in the sky.
  12. OT: When it comes to sitcoms joking about dementia for a quick laugh, I'd like them to have to deal with looking after my mother who has vascular dementia. They wouldn't find it so funny then :'(

    Little House On The Prairie

    I preferred Baby Grace to Carrie. I'd still support a special today in which one or both Turnbaughs show us what Grace is up to as an adult. Even though TV Mary went mline, hopefully TV Grace is spared the severe diabetes that killed Real Grace.

    Say What?: Commercials That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

    Celine Dion sings "Respect" (or a portion of it) in a commercial for L'Oreal. Sorry, Celine; Aretha Franklin owns that song. Even though she passed away last year.

    Say What?: Commercials That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

    The Bounty commercial was funny, the first time it aired. By the 557th millionth viewing, it has long since worn our its welcome.
