    All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    I understand that what we see on this show, and what Judge Judy sees during filming, are people with problems of their own making. But once Judge Judy became rich, she seemed to forget that many people have real, legitimate issues that are outside of their control. People really do work hard for years and then get laid off because companies downsize. People really do get injured on the job. People really do become disabled. She seems to forget that because these things do not happen in her little bubble of wealthy friends.

    You'll notice that the old guy brought in his nephew to help him out. And also notice that the nephew was quiet and respectful, allowing the adults to talk. It sure looked like the nephew was very accustomed to having to help the uncle out.

    Leave It To Beaver

    This is where the show had to walk a fine line. The producers and writers have stated that their job was to set an example of how to parent children in the newly prosperous 1950's. I think they did a great job of that. But they left many people out: Ward had a good, steady job with solid benefits. But what about a person who's job went away, through no fault of their own? June was in good health, and had plenty of time to keep herself looking nice and taking care of the family. But what about women who have health issues and need extra help? The boys excelled in school and only needed gentle nudges to complete their homework. But what about kids with learning disabilities? Watching the show, you wouldn't think that people like that existed.

    S10.E21: Commencement

    Funny thing about this show. The worse it gets, the more I appreciate Ed O'Neil and his ability to underplay his scenes to make them funny. When they were protesting his speech. . . "It feels good to hate hippies again." And "Sure-- everybody talks about the owls that were wiped out, but does anybody talk about all the mice I saved?" Bwhahahaha! I admit it took me a minute to get that one. I think 22 minutes of Jay cutaways would have been funnier than this episode.

    Leave It To Beaver

    That's true! Lucky for Tony Dow that he aged very well through his teenage years, and seemed to skip that "awkward stage" that we saw with Jerry Mathers.

    The problem was they kept writing Beaver as if he was still a little kid instead of a teenager. And the things that were cute when he said them as a kid were just awkward or annoying when he tried to say the same lines as a teenager.

    S10.E19: Yes-Woman

    You only need to go back a few episodes. Remember his comment about the hot mom at Joe's school, and his reaction to her? "Sure, I engaged in some friendly email banter, and I do realize that blue shirts make my eyes sparkle. And yes, I did some push ups in the parking lot, but those were for everybody!" I miss that Jay.

    All you have to do is catch a rerun or two and that reminds you of just how good this show used to be. Back when the characters were likeable, this show was hilarious.

    S10.E19: Yes-Woman

    The thing you have to understand about Phil in order to enjoy his character is that Phil is not dumb. The issue is, things pop into his mind the same way they pop into most of our minds. But while most of us would have a filter and think, "I can't say that out loud. It's ridiculous." Phil's imagination comes right out his mouth, "Is there a safe amount of helium you can give a baby that would make it float?"

    Such great points that we should look at them one at a time: 1. I think we can all agree with you that the Flagg/Altman pairing will provide plenty of (scripted) drama. 2. Okay, Altman. We know you didn't come from big money like Flagg or Madison, and you had to work harder. We get it. You can calm down a bit, now. 3. Tracy seems very sharp, and she deserves her success. But I keep thinking about only a few episodes back, her biggest problem was that her career was keeping her from spending time with her girls. Are we all just supposed to forget about that? 4. One thing I will say about the Brits. The other players have a "been there, done that" type of attitude toward the huge deals. The Brits seem to have maintained this attitude of, "This is amazing! Can you believe the huge deals happening in this town!"

    3rd Rock From The Sun

    That's where the writers did a great job of poking fun of our society from the viewpoint of a group on the outside looking in. The humor is similar in that after the punch line, you think the scene is over but there is one more ridiculous line that gets you laughing again. In the episode where Tommy and Dick (Why are we named Tom, Dick, and Harry?) Dick and Tommy buy stock in a company and then go charging down there like they own the place. It is hilarious as they strut down the halls firing everybody. Of course, security guards show up to kick them out, but that's not before they sneak an extra line in on you: "Why do you pay two security guards? Fire them both, and just pay one really big one!"

    Million Dollar Listing LA

    I hope not! Half the fun of watching this show is coming on here to talk about it. If they work out, it will be because Josh realizes that he needs Bobby to keep him grounded. Bobby seems to be able to call Josh out on his B.S. in a way that Josh is willing to accept it. I think Josh realizes that flipping houses would be too much work for him to want to do. Although I would eagerly watch a spin off series of Josh driving his contractors crazy!

    I laughed out loud remembering you all asking upthread: "What is it about crazy girls and Pontiacs?"

    Million Dollar Listing LA

    As a car guy, I really enjoyed watching Altman on the hunt for this property. Think of it like this: You have a collection of very high end cars. You have to walk a fine line between your collection being convenient for you to have friends over, and yet private enough that prying eyes don't stumble across your valuable (and vulnerable) collection. I've had this happen in real life a few times now where I've become friends with a person, and after a while they say, "Come on over to the house-- I have something to show you." And BAM! There is the Shangri-La. Knowing this, it was fun to watch Altman and all of his contacts say the same thing, "I know every high end home around here, and I've never heard of this property."

    You have just summed up the series in exactly six words.
