In "Carlin's New Suit," Bob Newhart found himself waiting to see Star Wars… and dealing with a new pager. Yeah, they had beepers in 1977!
Even Bob Newhart had to wait in line to see Star Wars on his sitcom

There's an episode of Columbo where a doctor lends Columbo his beeper so the hospital can reach him faster. I think it was '73 or '74.

Bob Newhart is one of my all time favorite tv comedians.

I had stretch monster. Wasnt long before his,arm started leaking. They instructed you to put it in the freezer to fix it but that didnt work. 😕

I had one for all of about 10 seconds. My parents bought me one for my birthday when I was around 5. It didn't even leave the package before I took a pencil and stabbed him in his gut. He ended up atop the old refrigerator on the porch to bake in the California sun. The goo that leaked out (which resembled maple syrup) got hard and crusty. :-(

I remember those. They did reissue him years later with a different head. That stuff they had in him took forever to get off if it got on your hands.

Irene Ryan was still tweaking her portrayal of Granny in the first episodes. She played her as more stoic than feisty.
And Mr. Brewster seemed more responsible for keeping the Clampetts happy than Milburn Drysdale did in the beginning. The scriptwriters seemed to be leaning toward making Pearl's pursuit of Mr. Brewster a running thread until they gave him a society wife.

Pretty much watched it all the way through. Our local affiliate carried the show until it went NBC completely in the fall of 1968, in anticipation of the arrival of a full-time CBS affiliate the following February. What we missed in the interim was shown in reruns during the summer of '69. (No, not the Bryan Adams song). Didn't see any of the episodes in color, though as we didn't get our first until March of 1974.

Do you remember the Wonder Woman episode "Spaced Out"? Diana Prince heads to a Comic Con in the 1979 episode. It's filled with early Star Wars characters and cosplay… and Robby the Robot. Check it out!

This episode is hilarious. They tell you over and over that it is a "science fiction convention."

One nitpick: that's not a "Mars Attacks" alien in that final photo in the article. That's the Metaluna Mutant from the classic 50s sf flick, THIS ISLAND EARTH.

Despite it may not be on the summer lineup, I'm sure MacGyver will return later on in the Fall or sometime. In the meantime, I'm really lookin' forward to seein' ALF again! Oh, and to Barry Williams, I've been watchin' The Brady Bunch more than I used to and I've been really enjoyin' it! I look forward to the summer of ME!

Did you know that 'Cheers' was initially based on 'Fawlty Towers'? The UK inspired a good number of our TV shows in the '70s and '80s.

There was a short lived American version of Faulty Towers called Amanda's that ran for just 13 episodes 1983. The star of the series was Bea Arthur
There was also an attempt to create an American version of the British sitcom "Are You Being Served". The series was to be called "Bean's of Boston" it never got past the pilot stage
yesterday at 21:01
Cheers is about people who hang out in a bar. Fawlty Towers is about a married couple who owns a bed and breakfast inn. Saying one is based on the other is a real stretch of the imagination. I enjoy both shows but I do not see the connection at all.

One more recent example: Cosby (CBS 1996-2000) was loosely based on the 1990s BBC sitcom One Foot In The Grave.

Sean Connery will always be the James Bond. That I know and loved. James Bond is English somehow being British fits him. Roger Moore did a great job in being Bond. Keeping him British and that never change.😎🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.

Adam West was good in Bat Man TV series.My twin brother and I used to watch him back in the 70s on channel 11.

I kid you not. There was this tiny, little ad in the paper for this movie, Star Wars. Tiny little ad. But it looked interesting, so my date that night asked me if I wanted to go. It was opening night.
The next week's paper featured a full page ad. The lines to see it, were around the corner. It was a hit.
yesterday at 15:55
First saw it in early June 1977 at the Valley Circle theater (RIP) in San Diego, one of the original 32 theaters where it opened on May 25. The lines were so long, they wrapped around the building and down the parking lot. My parents pulled my brother and me out of school to see it on a weekday, figuring our chances were better. We still had to wait for hours in a huge line. People had brought lawn chairs. I'll never forget the carnival atmosphere. No experience like it since.

I am the right age to remember all the classic Sid & Marty productions...and even "Pink Lady and Jeff"....but "Lancelot Link" wins for sheer oddness...it is available on Amazon Prime if I'm not mistaken.
yesterday at 15:34
I watched a lot of those Sid & Marty Krofft shows either on their original run or in syndication: H.R. Pufnstuf, Lidsville, Sigmund & The Seamonsters, and of course the Krofft Supershow. What an imagination those guys had. I remember Slim Goodbody too. Kind of creepy.
yesterday at 13:36
I loved the Bug-A-Loos, but all the other Sid and Marty Krofft shows scared the living daylights out of me. Sigmund and the Sea Monsters was the worst. (Yes, I was an incredible scaredy cat. Still am.)

My first couple of cars as a teen in the late 70's had them. Two cars even had power vent windows! And one can imagine my annoyance with people trying to shut them by using their hands to push them shut instead of using the switches....

On some models power vent windows could be ordered and they were standard equipment on certain Cadillacs, Lincolns and Imperials.

It is an absolute shame the series.....ALL of it.....hasn't been released on DVD. Sadly, the first two seasons have been released, but with the original music replaced with a poor substitute. I recall the beginning of the show having Fred MacMurray saying "Hi.....welcome to our show for Hunts Catsup".

Is it my imagination or are Doritos thinner and more fragile these days? It seems like whenever I'm eating them they start crumbling rather easily. Something seems different about them from what I remember as a child.

What you should do is show the list of ingredients and have they have changed over the years. Neither old or new has anything healthy in them and lots of carcinogens. But those who eat way too much bacon don't care about carcinogens or sodium nitrates. LOL They'll all die with orangey, salty smiles and be glad they died from something they could have easily prevented entering their body.
