Willy Wonka’s golden ticket winners reunited!
November 6th, 2017 under 70s, Reunions. [ Comments: none ]

46 years ago, the World fell in love with the movie version of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Over the weekend, they did a live performance of it at the Hollywood Bowl and some of the original cast members reunited for the production.

No word if they used Charlie’s glass elevator to get to Hollywood, but I would not be surprised if that is exactly what Michael Bollner (Augustus), Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca Salt), Peter Ostrum (Charlie) and Paris Themmen (Mike Teevee) did to get here. Either that or Weird Al Yankovic, who was playing all of the Oompa Loompas, finally rescued them from the Chocolate Factory and brought them to the show.

Either way, are you as happy as Charlie was when he find that golden ticket to see them all together again? I know I am! Too bad Gene Wilder is not alive to enjoy the love we still have for the movie that has made so many kids happy over the last 4 decades!

BTW can you believe that they are all between 58-60 years old? I still see them as those little kids meeting Willy Wonka for the first time and running into his Chocolate Factory. From Pure Imagination to pure joy!


Watch the Charles in Charge cast sing their theme song!
October 30th, 2017 under 80s, Reunions. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, everyone was singing the Charles in Charge theme song. Heck even now you can do it, just from your memory because it was so gosh darn catchy. Well what about the cast of the beloved sitcom, can they do it?

This weekend Buddy Lembeck (Willie Aames), Gwendolyn Pierce (Jennifer Runyon) and, Jamie (Nicole Eggert) and Adam Powell (Alexander Polinsky) all got together for a mini-reunion at the Chiller Theater convention in NJ. On the way there, they all sang their theme song and the actors knew each and every word from memory just like you and me. Even though they had not seen each other in years (and for one not having worked with two of them), they still were all in sync as they sang the tune that is stuck in your head now. And hearing them do it makes you feel as happy as you do whenever you hear that song on television.

I have said this before and I will say it again, why doesn’t someone reboot this show. Maybe Adam is hired to babysit Gwendolyn and Buddy’s kids. Since the latter two got married and had kids! I would watch it, wouldn’t you?

Oh Donna, it is a La Bamba reunion!
October 23rd, 2017 under Reunions. [ Comments: none ]

Thirty years ago, people feel in love with Ritchie Valens all over again, thanks to the brilliant job that Lou Diamond Phillips did in the bio pic. People fell in love with La Bamba and 3 decades later they are still watching the story about a singer whose life was sadly cut short at the height of his career due to a plane crash.

Over the weekend, Phillips was reunited with his movie brother Esai Morales and movie lover Danielle von Zerneck at The Hollywood Show. Seeing them all together like that makes you want to watch the film all over again. You also wish they could do a sequel, but as we know that is impossible.

When it comes to actors, they all look as good as they did in the 1987 film.

Finally, I have had Oh Donna stuck in my head ever since I saw this photo.


Did Donna Mills hint there’s a Knots Landing reunion in the works?
October 19th, 2017 under 80s, Reunions. [ Comments: 1 ]

Donna Mills shared a photo with her Knots Landing co-stars, Michelle Lee and Joan Van Ark and said, “Your favorite trio is back together! Exciting things #comingsoon 🎥⚡️.” Does that mean that there are working on a Knots Landing reunion? Or could it be something else? Things that make you go hmmmmmm.

Things that make you go “wow” is that fact that those three ladies are all in the mid-’70’s (76, 75 and 74) and they look just as they did in ’80s when they were doing that primetime Soap Opera we all loved. Scratch that, they all look even better now than they did then. Don’t you agree?


A Family Matters’ reunion!
September 28th, 2017 under Jaleel White, Reunions. [ Comments: none ]

Last week it was announced that the Family Matters house is going to be torn down, and this week Entertainment Weekly posted photos of the cast together again. Jo Marie Payton, Reginald VelJohnson, Kellie Shanygne Williams, Darius McCrary, Jaleel White, Telma Hopkins, Shawn Harrison, and Bryton James did a photo shoot for the mag. Even though it has been 19 years since their beloved sitcom ended, they look just as close as they did then. In fact, they look like they are having as just as much as they did when they were all working together.

So much so, I think someone needs to give them reboot ASAP. I would love to spend my Friday nights with the Winslows and Urkel all over again. Just like I did in the ’90s. Would you watch?
