Related to that, I remember trying to figure out just how Lucille's apartment layout could work given it's both across the hallway from and connected to Lucille 2's apartment and imagining it as some kind of House of Leaves scenario.

And you'll have pop pop in the attic.

Doogie Howser is one of those shows that is referenced a lot, but I've never actually seen anyone talk about the actual content. Looking at the wikipedia page it sounds pretty serious in tone, and that looks like a Disney channel show so I dunno.

Could be the last apartment in the hall on each side and they meet like an L and J shape?

I forget all the details that I considered at the time but I think the balconies made it impossible, like they'd have to bend around each other four-dimensionally. It's one of those things that it took me a while to notice, but it stuck in my mind ever since given Arrested Development was usually a show that took those kinds of minute details into consideration.

Also, just writing this out makes me nostalgic for the old days of extremely detailed Arrested Development discussions and speculation, back before season 4 came out.

I haven't watched Miami Vice since the 80's, and only one I recalled was Phil Collins. Biggest shock in that list? Leonard Cohen and Miles Davis.

DO YOU HEAR THAT? THAT'S THE SOUND OF ME PATTING MYSELF ON THE BACK.


I'm rounding the corner of Season 6 into Season 7 of my Malcolm in the Middle rewatch and what strikes me is just how much of this show I remember. Like, there hasn't been an episode yet that has seemed completely unfamiliar to me even though I wouldn't have been able to recall specifics ahead of time.

I'm pretty sure I didn't watch them in syndication, so most episodes I would have only saw once, when they originally aired.

I guess that's the "pre smartphone" effect. Hell, I didn't even get my first laptop till 2006. Unless I was reading a book or a magazine, what I was watching would have had my undivided attention.

Anyways, quality remained consistently high throughout the run even if they did dip into the cartoon level setups a bit more later. One thing I have noticed though it's it seems like the plots are more separate than they used to be between family members, I wonder if that was some sort of shooting hurdle they were working with. Probably cost cutting after so many years.

I'm nearly done with season 2 and completely agree. Every episode to me seeks like a stone cold classic that's etched in my memory.

I watched it as it aired in Australia in wildly inconsistent timeslots and nights and I still remember it (although, being only 2 seasons in, the show was still at its peak popularity and was probably in the one timeslot. Wednesdays at 8 if I recall!). I also have a suspicion this was a show I VCR'd and rewatched.

Assume you guys are watching it on Hulu? I was always under the impression that the lack of DVD and streaming presence of the show was due to the music rights. Is the They Might Be Giants score present or did they dub it with generic stuff?

Edit: typos. I really need to stop posting right before bed as I fall asleep halfway through

Hulu and the music is all intact (at least as far as I've been able to tell). But yeah, the music is why it hasn't had a US release on disc. I wonder how they managed to have rights for streaming but not physical sales when it's usually the reverse that's true.

I watched Doogie on and off when I was a kid and it was wild when I revisited it and saw that the entire goddamn hospital is complicit in the sexual harassment of a teenage boy in the pilot episode.

I remember it as being a slightly more serious sitcom, like blackish episodes that address social issues. I remember when he got robbed or something and bought a gun, then changed his mind about it, i forget why, he got spooked and pointed it at his mom or something maybe?

It basically did its own thing.

If you are willing to let go of the books and embrace something whacky and weird, then I think it's a solid watch.


If you are likely to stew the whole time that they basically are using things from the books in name only, then stay away.

Dipped into the Jeopardy thread to find that Executive Producer Empty Suit awarding the job to himself was a long-standing conspiracy:

Porfiriato posted:

I was listening to the latest episode of Ken's podcast Omnibus Project and they were talking about how the next Dalai Lama is picked. There's a regent who oversees the search, and his co-host asked, 'is it ever a situation where the assistant to the Dalai Lama, in the process of searching for the Dalai Lama, discovers it's him?'

To which Ken replied, "you mean like Dick Cheney?" and then after a quick chuckle added, "...or Mike Richards?" and then immediately moved on with the conversation.

I'd not been watching any of the Jeopardy guest hosts but Reading Rainbow was a big deal for me growing up and I tuned in only for Levar Burton after hearing that he got his shot after the internet begged for it. I might get some hate for it, but he was unfortunately really disappointing. I love the guy but I don't think it was meant to be for him. I don't know who is the right pick but I'm betting it ain't a guy that's already in charge of poo poo there.

Levar Burton was just too sedate for jeopardy. Itís like Bob Ross. Great host for something else but just completely the wrong vibe for a competitive show.

Even if you donít pick Burton the obvious choice really seemed like Ken Jennings. Heís boring and safe, but he has a following and obviously heís super familiar with being on the show since heís a former champion and heís been guest-hosting for a while now.

I watched the show pretty religiously until Trebek died and I donít know who the hell Whitey McProducer-gently caress is.
