  TV Memories


Grandpa should have been traded to the Addamses - 
with Wednesday, Pugsley & future considerations 
going over to the Munsters...!









I never liked that show -
to me, HAPPY DAYS was so boring to watch
I could have slept through any episode!
I found Fonzie so classless,
such a neanderthal
(I'm happy to have noticed that,
Henry Winkler, in his older days,
is nothing like that!)
And as for the rest of the cast -
I found them utterly uninteresting!
If I wanted to watch an ordinary family
in the 1970s - I just had to look at my own!
Still, HAPPY DAYS evokes pleasant nostalgia for me
as it evokes carefree days,
happy days, indeed,
in which I could choose to not comb my hair
and still look terrific!
Days in which I could simply have fun
without a single worry in the world!
Days, very happy days
that I could choose to play outside
instead of watching this crap!




Didn't read the book -
but I sure remember seeing the films
with these two;
and laughing so hard...
Good, fun memories,
indeed!
Of course,
it helped immensely
that I was equal parts
Deano... and Jerry!
Every guy
has a bit of both in him
I do believe!



Captain Caveman -
though never one of my favorites,
I always thought he had potential...!
In my teeny-weeny luminous mind,
he struck me, from the get-go,
as a sort of cross between
Cousin It Addams
and a Flinstone -
thus, if such was the case,
in my itty-bitty luminous mind,
the character was doomed
to never be on top of my list!
Sorry, Cap Cave!




... the translation of THE OUTER LIMITS...!




Loved her to bionic bits, but...
As the Bionic Woman, I always thought...
Lindsay Wagner (or, rather, Jaime Sommers)
is basically... a living-dead cyborg!



OK -
a George Romero
"little zombie girl"
and the Exorcist's
possessed little girl
are NOT one and the same -
but you must admit
it is pretty much
the same DAMN thing!
(Extirpate "pretty" from that - please!)




Equal aversion towards vampires *and* witches here;
hence, I'll stick to those good old manners
inculcated upon little luminous me waaaay back:
if you haven't got anything nice to say
(...or write... or blog...)
don't say (...) anything!
I certainly will refrain from adding on anything
about the former - as she was a sweet woman -
or the latter - as I barely knew her!



Now the next memory that triggers a surge 
of instant nostalgia... saudades for those days...
and plain old thrills and chills 
- is this French mini-series 
based upon an old book 
time almost forgot...




Shocking, eh - 
that a little boy like me liked stuff like this - 
back in those days!?





Never one of my faves either,
the Filmation Hercules still manages
to strike a very vivid nostalgic chord
whenever I catch it on reruns
- wherever...!
Truth is, I can't believe
some stations still show it -
I can't stand that goat boy sidekick
and, as I grew older,
and read about the mythological Pan,
I understood the WHY of THAT...!

But let's end on a GOOD note:
