    replied to Hair styles you've had???
    There's a channel here that shows old game shows and sometimes they will even pan across the studio audiences. In the '70s shows you will see a lot of women inspired by Farah Fawcett's hair. Later in the '80s there was a Lady Di craze in hairstyles. I remember a young aunt having a curling iron for...

    started a topic Magazines about TV

    Magazines about TV

    I'm a sucker for a decent magazine on TV shows I'm interested in. I just found out about a new one named Chromakey with articles on mostly vintage sci-fi and fantasy series, what usually get labelled 'cult tv'. I'll report on the four issues they've put together so far once they reach me. I also get...

  • Re: American Election 2020

    Trump's apparent popularity is always surprising me. I think it's an either you get it and like him or you don't at all affair. I didn't understand Bill Clinton's popularity any better though.

    I can imagine with all the strikes and power outages...

    Re: Bill the Minder

    I'm sure the same can happen in terms of children first seeing an Alice or Winnie The Pooh cartoons before the books, especially in America as the first Alice cartoons were before sound and made by a very young Walt Disney (who later did an Alice In Wonderland feature...

    Re: Iconic Tv moments

    The name Kendo Nagasaki is a bit like Karate Tokyo, so I'm assuming it's a 'stage' name. Maybe most are, but I remember one of the most well known in Canada was Gene Kiniski without a nickname even. Others used a last name after a nickname, this we could keep track...

    Was there any particularly memorable wrestling match between Big Daddy Crabtree and Giant Haystacks? Or even wrestling events in general. I haven't looked at any in decades but I remember my grandfather always watched wrestling avidly for years. There was quite a...

    Re: Bill the Minder

    I haven't seen the cartoon but it would be based on the old Children's book Bill The Minder. The book had art by William Heath-Robinson. I suppose that would've been published in Edwardian times, just before WWI.

    I'd imagine some of those eccentric Heath-Robinson...

    The Fawlty Towers where they are moving a deceased guest around the rooms was the one with Palmer. He was a doctor staying there and they kept taking his breakfast away from him thinking maybe something had gone off and poisoned the other guest. One of his lines...

    Re: Billiards and Pool

    I'd like to go to a school with a billiards room!

    I used to find myself watching it on tv, but they must be hiding the coverage at hours I don't watch or something now. There were some amazingly skilled players.

    I've not played much nor...

    Sad news indeed, a very familiar face for so long!

    I also remember even those brief Fawlty Towers and Doctor Who appearances fondly.

    I think the 2000 Bush Jr. vs. Al Gore election went on and on with the result coming down to disputes about Florida. That might be the best one to compare this one to although it was the Republican who prevailed and not the Democrat former VP.

    I was out to the bank this morning (Canada) and couldn't believe there were two people ahead of me with no masks and there is a sign at the door saying to wear them while inside.

    Re: To Sir, With Love

    I thought Lulu could be really good on bluesy or rock n' roll numbers. It was when they included her in that Blues documentary series with people like Van Morrison that I was surprised she had that quality.

    Yes, it was recorded for the film, the soundtrack album with music by Traffic and Steve Winwood's previous group The Spencer Davis Group was finally available on CD a few years back.
