Robbie Rist killed more shows than The Brady Bunch
October 5th, 2016 under 70s. [ Comments: none ]

Before there was Ted McGinely who killed shows like Happy Days and The Love Boat, there was Robbie Rist. He is best known for killing The Brady Bunch when he joined the show as Cousin Oliver in what turned to be its final season. Me TV that airs the classic family show revealed it wasn’t the only show that ended shortly after he appeared on it. He was also seen The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Gun Smoke, Star Trek and The Andy Griffith Show. Therefore, networks if you want a show to end, cast Robbie Rist. The Big Bang Theory, American Horror Story, Scream Queens and Modern Family, I am looking at you. What show do you want to see him on?


You will never watch Grease the same way again
September 8th, 2016 under 70s, Odd. [ Comments: none ]

Grease is a happy, feel-good movie, but one fan’s theory will change the way you look at the classic musical. Atomicbolt believes that the car Sandy and Danny drove, literally, into the sunset, was actually taking her to heaven because she drowned in the beginning of the movie. They say since her brain was oxygen deprived, she imagined the whole rest of the movie as Danny tried to save her unsuccessfully. In short, they theorized it as a “drowning woman’s coma fantasy.”
And now I have tears on my pillow because I feel like I have been struck by Greased Lightnin.

Danny Bonaduce is seeing red!
September 6th, 2016 under 70s, Bad Hair. [ Comments: none ]

Back when Danny Bonaduce was a kid on The Partridge Family, he had bright red hair. As he got older the ginger added some salt into the mix, and his wife wanted to see him recapture his youthful color. Therefore, she told him to try some Henna and this is the result.
He says, “Holy hell, I look like Carrot Top.” I personally think he looks like a pissed off Ronald McDonald. Who do you think the Radio DJ looks like with bright red locks?
What is scary, I think it is pretty close to Danny Partridge’s hair color. Don’t you agress?


Dyn-o-mite, want to see a Good Times movie with the original cast?
March 1st, 2016 under 70s. [ Comments: none ]

Even though it has been over 35 years since Good Times has produced an original episode, it is still as current and fresh now as it was then. In fact, it is airing in syndication on several different networks because it is still just as popular.
Having said all of that, it makes sense that the original cast wants to do a reunion movie and their asking their fans to help make it happen with a Kickstarter campaign.
If you want to see The Evans Family, James (John Amos), JJ (Jimmie Walker), Thelma (Bern Nadette Stanis), Michael (Ralph Carter), their next door neighbor Willona (Ja’net Dubois) and their annoying handy Bookman (Johnny Brown) together again, then you have just a few days left to donate to their campaign. The more you give, the more you get. But we would all get a huge prize in the end and that would be seeing them all together again, reprising their most iconic beloved roles.
No word if they asked Penny to join them. Whether Janet Jackson can do it or not, she should give them the rest of them money to make our and their dream a reality. It is just pennies for Penny, right?
If you want this to happen as much as I do, then donate to their Kickstarter campaign ASAP.


Imagine Burt Reynolds as James Bond or Hans Solo
November 17th, 2015 under 70s. [ Comments: 1 ]

Burt Reynolds has an autobiography out called But Enough About Me and in it he details some of the infamous roles he turned down. Can you imagine ’70s biggest sex symbol as Bond, James Bond? Actually, I could, but he couldn’t and he told Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer why he turned it down. He said, “I said, ‘An American can’t play James Bond. It has to be an Englishman. Bond, James Bond. You know, I can’t do it.’” Other roles he said he couldn’t do are Star Wars’ Han Solo and Terms of Endearment’s Garrett Breedlove which eventually went to Jack Nicholson.
Not only did he turn down movies, he also turned down his one true love, Sally Field. When Spencer asked him if he thinks maybe they could get together now, he said “No. No. She’s too smart for that.” She is single, so maybe he can woe her during a moment of weakness. And maybe we can get one more Smokey and the Bandit movie out of it? It’s a win/win!
