What TV Shows Should Never Have Been Made...

Postby shireling » Sun Jan 16, 2011 9:37 pm

...In Your Opinion?

I love how these topics went with movies. The one that immediately comes to mind is My Mother the Car. And I watched it, but at my age, I was not in control of the television.

All sports pre-game shows. it just wastes another hour of TV that could be showing a good historical, sci-fi, or fantasy series.

Any of those so called reality shows.

I used to tune in to The History Channel and Discovery Channel, but they are in to that cwrap now too. Even The Weather Channel has that BS going on, between commercial ads that is. :mad:

"Amen" and "ditto" on the ones mentioned!

At work now- so can't think of others of the top of my head. Back later! :D

I know :evil: ! I think wikipedia (with the small 'w' showing my contempt :D) has crept into everything, so are we really watching truth or something that somebody else thinks the truth ought to be?

Case in point: A show telling that John Wilkes Booth survived his entrapment and killing, and that his mother and siblings - (who viewed the body, identified it and subsequently had it buried in the family plot) - were wrong. :? There are people who actually want him exhumed, but fortunately, sanity reigns in his family and they will not agree to it. Besides, there are a number of Booth-family babies that died and have been buried above him (that's so sad :( ) and nobody - provided they aren't nuts - would want to disturb these little ones.

Whine! What happened to genuine creativity? Shows that were actually decent and innovative have been taken off because viewing figures dropped. Why do the vast majority of viewers prefer junk?

I'm with all of you on reality shows. They're awful! My hubby calls Big Brother "Big Bother."

Anything with talking machines (apart from robots). I'm probably in the minority here, but the idea of talking cars, etc., seems ridiculous to me.

I hate to say it but that's the belief of those who follow the 18 to 35 male demographic, who are also the biggest consumers of beer, pizza and more beer.

:lol: I like your husband!

Everybody knows in a second life, we all come back sooner or later.
As anything from a pussycat to a man eating alligator.
Well you all may think my story, is more fiction than it's fact.
But believe it or not my mother dear decided she'd come back.

As a car...

She's my very own guiding star.
A 1928 Porter.
That's my mother dear.
'Cause she helps me through everything I do
And I'm so glad she's near.

My Mother the Car.
My Mother the car.


I could not make this up :roll: Jerry Van Dyke was lucky to have survived this.

Dang! I like beer. It's just a shame that other people who like beer also like junk.

:lol: I like your husband!


He likes you, too. I keep telling him about you. :D

Ooh, ooh, anyone remember Car 54 Where Are You?

"There's a hold up in the Bronx, Brooklyn's broken out in fights.
There's a traffic jam in Harlem that's backed up to Jackson Heights.
There's a scout troop short a child, Khrushchev's due at Idlewild!
Car 54 where are you?
"

WE always used to sing the theme song to "It's About Time" thusly,

It's about time, it's about space
It's about time I slapped you in the face.

We were 7 years old, ok? Don't judge! :lol:

There was this really lame British effort called Why Don't You? which was run by kids. I mean, no offence, but because they weren't professionals, they weren't terribly good.

Were you the little elf who lived in the ceiling fan above my mom's stove? We sang that, too! And here I thought my sister wrote it! Another illusion busted!
