MTM - gosh I loved that show and the original Bob Newhart show

Chuckles the Clown yes - any of the ones with the Happy Homemaker... oh and there were one or 2 with Jack Cassidy as Ted Baxter's brother


AITF = Sammy Davis  with the kiss   there was one where Jean Staepelton was going on nd on and on telling this boring story and Carrol O'Connor mimes  takingout a gun, loading it, and shooting himself in the head and falling over that was hysterically funny

Good morning, all! I keep missing my trip to the pharmacy, so I'm doing it this morning on my way down to the McGlinnventory.

I have the inventory this morning, a stop at Toyland to pick up some music, and then back here to accomplish some work on edit problems from my copyists.

TOD: I loved ALL IN THE FAMILY more than the Mary Tyler Mooore show, but I still remember th episode of the death of Chuckles the Clown from MTM and nothing about ALL IN THE FAMILY!

Chuckles the Clown was great TV, but I also loved the dinner party episodes on MTM, such as the one in which Lou took two and half portions of the dinner and there were no seconds back in the kitchen.

I also found the later episode in which Mary and Lou had a "date" to be really funny.

My favorite supporting player was always Cloris Leachman as Phyllis, and the timing of her reactions was particularly wonderful.

I watched "All in the Family" a lot and loved the episodes that had the neighbors (the Jeffersons) or family (Maude) drop in. The people who were on the show, from Betty Garrett to Sammy Davis Jr., were always great.

A couple of my favorite shows......

In addition to those episodes mentioned:

MTM - the obituary episode when they wrote a joke obit for someone and forgot it was in the file, and Ted read it on the air
          the all night election report when the teletype was broken and they couldn't get the results

ALL IN THE FAMILY - Gloria buys a wig at Kressler's, a station wagon full of nuns, and Archie & Mike stuck in the basement

A lesson in how to remove any sense of joy or life from a song - including the orchestrations......and slow the tempo way down, please.

Not sure if the choreography is just bad or they had to tailor it for the bad dancers.....  I had forgotten how horrible it really was.

It must be a week for finishing books--I finally got through the Charles M. Schulz bio on the train this morning.  Very sad.  For all his success, his fame and his wealth, for all the happiness he instilled in the fans of his Peanuts, the man lived a life of bitterness and regret and never truly felt he was ever loved by anyone to the very end.

As for the book itself, I found it to be wildly uneven.  The author, David Michaelis, goes into such minute details in many aspects of Schulz's life but almost totally ignores others.  For instance, I've learned more about the husband of the woman who was the life model of the Little Red Headed Girl than of most of Schulz's own children, who remain ciphers throughout the book.  Also, Michaelis takes a few tangents from biography and slips into analyzing the Peanuts strip.  While what he has to say about it is interesting, he pretty much ignores the early years of the strip along with any discussion of some of the major characters like Peppermint Patty.

All in all, I guess I'm glad that I read it even though my feelings about its subject have been vastly altered (Charles M. Schulz was one of my childhood heroes.)  I feel a need to go back and read the Peanuts collections to remind myself that I fell in love with the work and not the man.

TOD:

THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW
Certainly the Chuckles episode, but also the episode where Mary has a bad day and the one where Rhoda enters (an wins!) a beauty contest.

ALL IN THE FAMILY
"Edith Goes Through the Change" contains what I think is one of the best lines ever written for TV comedy:   "We're not going to Disney World--or any other world!"

I mostly enjoyed the episode in which only the four principle players appeared such as the one where Gloria is having her "time of month" which sets off a chain of arguments.

DR RonP, re: BIG BROTHER and your comments last night.

Right now my favorites are Brendan and Rachel.  I am finding that they seem smart. And a bunch who seem dumb are getting on my nerves.

There is this girl Kristen who they showed last night. But other than 2 words she has never spoken on the show! I find Lane and Hayden seem sort of dumb. And Enzo gets on my nerves too. I loved the "smart" comp last night. And i love that Andrew purposely misspelled his word (since he is a doctor - except to them he's a shoe salesman).

Annie is getting on my nerves. And actually andrew is too.  I wish we could see more of matt and ragan (although to me they look similar) and keep getting their jobs mixed up since Ragan is a professor but they keep calling matt "the smart one".

It figures that i go to the library yesterday and then they call to say that they have a book for me.

It's no big deal because i pass it everyday on my bike ride. But it just always happens.

Thursday morning greetings!  Since we were away almost a week, I think it's time for grocery shopping.  That's my major agenda item for today, along with a meeting of my book group tonight.  It's a Graphic Novel Roundtable and it will be fun to see 1) the variety of selections, and 2) what my friends thought of the genre.  I read Stitches by David Small.  It's set in Detroit during the time I grew up and from the illustrations it appears that his family's house was identical to mine.

TOD:

MTM -- Chuckles Bites the Dust, especially the desciption of what happened to him at the parade.  Also the one where Mary gets her first look at Sue Ann's bedroom!

All in the Family:  The menopause episode...and that memorable moment where Edith yells at Archie to "stifle"; the Bea Arthur episode in which Maude appears and declares, looking down her nose at Archie, "Never fear, Maudie's here!"; and the episode in which Archie has the runs...and keeps having to race back up the stairs before completing a rant of any kind.

TOD - I was young, single, and living in my own apartment at the same time MTM was airing on Saturday nights.  It always amused me that I either lived like MTM (when I had a date) or watched MTM (when I didn't have a date).  One of my favorite episodes was when she moved to her new apartment and, after all the excitement died down, she stood alone in the middle of the living room and wailed, "I hate it!"
