Out of the 100 plus television channels, probably 85 of them are sports.

Grace-how reassuring that there is a next generation of youngsters watching shows like L.I.S.I tend to think a lot of them watch the same tv programmes as their parents and get a rather harsh look at the world.Not as much innocence as there used to be(sound like my own Grandfather now).On a less morbid note-Lost in Space is very popular in Australia;Jonathon Harris(Dr. Smith)appearred at a big sci-fi convention there(of course he passed away several years ago).Another favourite episode was The Girl from the Green Dimension.When I lived in Sydney there was a hairdressing salon in Bondi called Pretty,pretty Dr.Smith-a line from that story.Coincidentially-yesterday I was at a Pulp Culture Festival called Armageddon.Seth Green was there promoting Robot Chicken-said he would sign anything except man-boobs.One of the Were Wolves from Twilight was there-very popular young man.Gigi Edgley from Farscape,several Stargate stars.Actors from Legend of the Seeker-made here for the American market.A very interesting writer of Babylon 5 said Bill Mumy was great to work with,talented, professional and wickedly humerous.Mumy did have a little trick that many tv actors use I believe where he would deliberatley play a scene wrong in a group so he could get a close-up.The writer told that story to make Mumy seem endearing not difficult.

I never took to LIS, . Actually, I did  not like it at all, although Jonathan Harris was high camp.
  Another show I did not relate to was the Jetsons. I thought it was simply inane. Funnay that, years later, one of mu younger friends was so wrapped up in  he became a dedicated collector, his apartment was all themed around that era,  furniture , walls, kitchen, etc. He even opened a restaurant in LA [of course] along the same lines.   He was not even born when that series was on, but he loves it...

I had swiine flu earlier this month, and home for a week -- the Hallmark channel showed I love Lucy from 5 pm until 9 ... I got to see the Hollywood episodes - and the one with Harpo Marx - pure brilliance.


I am also with Marlene with Lucy, but only with Vivian Vance.  I have all 3 series on dvd and watch them from tim-to-time for relief, or inspration...never know which I am up to when I put them on!

 Crikey,I forgot to put down my favourite australian childhood tv series in the 1960, Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, it was very popular around the world, anyone know if it was shown on American TV.

Who?  The late Ed Devereaux, who played the park ranger or Garry Pankhurst, the child lead?

Kangaroos aren't that bright and several different animals were used,each one being able to perform one trick.When Skippy was flying a helecopter or steering a boat what you you would see on the screen was a close up of a sawn off kangaroo paw on the controls.

Out of curiosity though, has anyone ever heard of Victor and Hugo besides me? It was a cartoon about two criminals that were a picnic short of a sandwhich.
