    Dealbreaker TV Characters

    Admittedly Carlton and Gina both had it coming and very much set themselves up to be made fun of. But you're right, the protagonists in their respective shows took it too far. I think he had less contempt for also Potter, Mulcahy, and Radar. Here's a fun hypothetical: what do you think the...

    By then, it was too little too late. He had already established himself as actually surpassing Frank in his pomposity. Charles and Frank both had the same entitlement issues and endured the same level of abuse from their bunkies, yet Frank would never outright give them the silent treatment...

    Dealbreaker TV Characters

    Aha, maybe I wasn't clear, hence the low post count. Break, not make. A little goes a long way. Plus, I feel that Fritzell/Greenbaum didn't write every single Ernest T. episode (not counting Malcolm at the Crossroads cuz by then they had left the show), that would have freed them up a little...

    ^Y'know, if this was 2004 and Matbo started this thread, we'd be well into Page 8 by now.

    The Decline of DVD Commentaries

    ^I would have never guessed that a movie that did average (at best) box office business would be devoid of criticism but obvi y'all proved me wrong.

    Dealbreaker TV Characters

    By which I mean characters that can literally make or break your ability to enjoy the show they're on. I have quite a few: -Mr. Carlin (Bob Newhart Show) -Wojo (Barney Miller) -Niles (Frasier) -Suzanne/Etienne (Designing Women) -Briscoe/Helen/Ernest T. (Andy Griffith) -Charles (MASH) -Uncle...

    The Decline of DVD Commentaries

    I know that there’s still five months left of 2020 and I normally wait until the beginning of the next new year to do an audio commentary review but after listening to the Onward commentary I have… some thoughts. This is going to get a little political so you’ve been warned. So right off the...

    Email from Fred Buchholz

    For those not in the know, Fred was a special effects guy for the Henson company. I recently sent him an email asking what were the most fun /challenging Henson projects he's ever worked on and I thought you'd be interested in hearing his reply: "The most difficult effect I worked on was in...

    Future Dr. Seuss Films

    In the years since I first posted this thread, a few Seuss properties have had new adapts that I'd love to hear your thoughts on : the new animated Grinch film (which I think if nothing else has made us all grateful for the Jim Carrey film in a way we weren't before) and the Green Eggs and Ham...

    Showstoppers (but in a bad way)

    If there's one strength that carries through all the Muppet films I's say moreso than in most films period), it's a goal to keep the story moving forward at all times and to always keep the audience interested and invested. That goal alone is why when a scene stops the movie flat (and not in a...

    Email from Bernie Labarge

    I recently sent a fan email to Bernie Labarge (the lead guitarist on all Fraggle Rock recording sessions) asking if he had any special memories of working on the show and I thought you would all like to hear his response: "Hi Brian, Very nice to hear from a Fraggle fan. I was just breaking...

    The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance - Episode 1 - End. Begin. All the Same.

    Saying a Netflix show does well is subjective: only on Netflix can shows like Kimmy Schmidt and 13 Reasons Why run multiple seasons. And if the DC series does have fans, one wonders how many of them have seen the original film.
