My New Obsession

We got a new channel on tv.  It's MeTV: Memorable Entertainment Television.  They play old shows and sitcoms and I can not stop watching it.  Whenever I'm not watching it I think, "I wonder what's on MeTV right now?" and then I go and check. My favorites are The Rifleman, The Dick Van Dyke show, Mary Tyler Moore, The Twilight Zone and I Love Lucy.  I'll also watch anything else too.  I'm not picky.

Yesterday I was watching My Three Sons and it was the one where Katy wanted Ernie and Chip to show her teenage cousins around town but they didn't want to be stuck with a couple of "clunky girls" so they said no.

But they eventually relented and long story short: Chip learned a valuable lesson about STDs.  Uncle Charlie sat him down and told him about the scorching case of the clap he got in WWII and they all had a good laugh.  Just kidding.  They haven't covered the topic of STDs on My Three Sons.  But they should.

My absolute favorite by far is The Rifleman.

I never heard of it before MeTV and I started watching it because of the crazy show opener.  Now I'm totally wrapped up with Lucas McCain and his young son Mark and all the people in North Fork.  I love how enormous Chuck Connors is, how adorable his son is, and you would not believe how many lessons I've learned!  You can pretty much solve any problem you have with a rifle.

I'm actually learning all kinds of things from MeTV.  For example, from the show Cannon I learned that it doesn't matter if you are tipping the scales at around 350, you can still knock out a gun-wielding bad guy with a well-placed karate chop.
"These hands are lethal weapons."
From Mary Tyler Moore I've learned two things:  Don't be afraid to wear a little more orange, and Rhoda is a fatass.

"creak creak creak" ~ Rhoda's stool

From I Love Lucy I have learned that Latin men are tyrannical hot heads and Ethel is a fatass.

"Maybe it's time to move to the women's shelter?  What do you think, Chubby?"

From Perry Mason I learned that court is booooooooorrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnggggggggg.

And finally, the person in charge of wardrobe for Star Trek was mentally ill.

Gotta go, Kojak's on!


  1. Take a good look at Ethel. Jeez, I should be so "fat."

  2. I know! Rhoda too! Those porkers must have been tipping the scales at around 125-130. Yikes.

  3. So you're telling me that someday my kid will actually leave me alone long enough for me to watch tv?? Sometimes it's the little things that keep me going.

  4. Rhoda was always my fav!! I thought she was so cool.
    But now I see those white shoes.....she's gone down a few bars on the cool scale.

    LOVE Star Trek!!

  5. Saturday night is now the highlight of my week because of star trek! But I totally know what you mean about their costumes. Did you notice in that episode when the lizard thing went to pick up a rock its rubber lizard face got smooshed way in

  6. i need to get rid of my directv. i am so addicted to tv that i cannot finish editing my memoir.

    lucy is also about breaking the bonds of oppression, and undiagnosed mental illness.

  7. Cannon, really does it for me.


  8. It is new type of info for me and it is so useful for everybody.


I would love your comments.
