: : Well...I reckon if you didn't like hair, Adam WAS the man for you...especially since even the little that he had on the show turned out to be a "piece." He was too sinister looking for me. I even liked Hoss better! What a goofy-but-lovable guy he was! And now that you mention it...I think Adam DID move to San Francisco....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....???? Maybe he's got a townhouse somewhere with Fluffy? Serves him right after masquerading as Trapper John for awhile!! We all know who the REAL Trapper John was, don't we?? Yeah, ol' What's His Name who left MASH and moved to San Francisco, too! Must be a whole ENCLAVE of Past-Their-Prime actors and Over-the-Hill kitty cats living out there!

: Ok, what was that word (as I am obviously lacking in the understanding department when it comes to TV lyrics...maybe it was our family TV's speakers.....I'll talk to my Dad) Nanashuts???
: (Don't make westerns like they used to!!!!)

You think the Bonanza sons were a tad strange? How about
Timmy on Lassie who lived on his farm for any number
of years, but kept falling down the well or getting lost
in the woods? Even as a kid I wondered why Lassie just
didn't look at him and think to herself, "Oh **** it!
Let the little bugger drown! Now where the hell is my
Now why, I wonder, do a great number of us look back
so fondly on these shows? Perhaps it has to do with
the headline Doctor M read in the TV section of the
paper this morning... " New animated show about guys
on road promises puppet sex!" Now there's something
to look forward to! Back to the past! Chaaaarge!!!
