The Friday Fives

1. What is the single worst movie you sat through hoping it would get better but didn’t?
The Abyss. We went to see it at “The Flicka” in Gunnison. Movies on the screen, movies to rent in racks in the lobby, and better than average bar food to take in with you to watch the flick. I took my parents, in town to visit their college-bound son. We ended up leaving in the middle. I have never left a movie in the middle while in the theater,
The night` ended with some pie and maybe a milkshake.

2. What hit American tv show do you just not get the appeal of at all?
Most competitive reality TV shows. I just don’t understand the appeal.

3. What was your favorite television show as a kid? Why?
The Saturday night block – Carol Burnett Show – The Love Boat, then Fantasy Island. Classic must-see TV.

4. As a kid, did you get obsessed each fall over the Saturday morning network cartoon line up?
Oh, yeah. There was usually a Friday night prime time special on the Saturday shows and we (my hood friends, Clancy and Greg and Jay and Rita and Julz) would watch and discuss. I remember getting excited about Lassie’s Rescue Rangers.

5. Add “and Hitler” to the end of the title of a book, movie, or TV show. What is it about now?
“Blazing Saddles” The sheriff takes on the German dictator in a Wild West showdown.

  1. 1) To y used to do movie reviews and get free passes. So he got free passes to Tom Greens movie Freddy got Fingered. It was free and I still think we overpaid. It was the worst movie ever, I would have left but Tony wouldn’t let me.

    2) The office. I just don’t get it.

    3) It was a huge treat if I got to stay up late enough and watch MASH with my mom. I still love that show.

    4) Loved Saturday morning cartoons.

    5) “ Get Smart and Hitler” It’s about this wacky duo one hellbent in genocide and the other trying to figure out who’s killing the Jews. And the bumbling idiot keeps inadvertently preventing the Holocaust but doesn’t understand why. The evil guy just throws up his hands, looks at the camera gets the Debbie downer music and yells “Smaaaaaarttt!” Repeat next week.
