  1. I've been on a Lost In Space kick lately, watching the series on DVD. I love the show in all its 60's sci-fi quirkiness. Not wanting to stop with just 84 episodes, I went in search of Lost In Space fan fiction. Not only did I find some, I found some epic sagas. I was impressed with the writing abilities of LIS authors. I find that in some fandoms, the quality of the writing is, well... as Dr. Smith might have put it, "Oh, the pain, the pain...." At any rate, these authors did excellent work. I thought I'd post some of my favorite Lost In Space fan fic here. There are plenty of great stories at the Lost In Space Galaxy fan fiction page. And below are some of my favorites. Hostile Takeovers by Don Farnsworth - Some 15 years after the adventures of the original series ended, a 29 year old Will Robinson finds himself trapped in the crashed Jupiter 2 and in the laser sights of a recently defrosted and decidedly mad Dr. Smith. This story has everything, angst, plot twists, alien conspiracies, brainwashing, and of course, plenty of action. This author absolutely nails the Dr. Smith character, verbosity and all. The Robot's characterization is excellent as well. I wouldn't have minded seeing this on the silver screen, as it's very true to original series. Chapters: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 Where Went The Robinsons by Keven Pellew - The Robinsons, all grown up and now living on the planet Trimea side by side with Taurons, are visited by the spaceship Orion, whose mission is to collect remnants of human missions that have been lost in space. Will the Robinsons come willingly back to Earth or will they be forced to go? Will a decidedly insane Dr. Smith be brought back for trial to face the music for his traitorous crimes or will the Umbra assassin on board the Orion get to him first? Chapters: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 More to come!
  2. Sherwood Schwartz, best remembered as creator and writer of such iconic tv shows as Gilligan's Island and Brady Bunch, has died at the age of 94. Thank you, Mr. Schwartz, for bringing hours of fun and entertainment to our lives!
  3. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop? The world may never know.
  4. Whatever it is I think I see becomes a tootsie roll to me!
  5. Gotta love the Twilight Zone marathon for July 4th weekend. Watching Mr. Dingle the Strong right now.
  6. One of my favorite Whose Line Is It Anyway? skits is the party quirks with Ryan Stiles playing Carol Channing whose head keeps getting stuck to things. Check it out... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf99E7WssCE
  7. Currently listenin' to some Foghat. Slow Ride... take it easy. I haven't compiled a list of all the songs in the episodes yet. It's on my to do list. But I do have a short Good Guys playlist, which I'll post here. Midnight Rider - The Allman Brothers Slow Ride - Foghat She Does - Locksley Slink (The Theme Song) - Locksley 20th Century Boy - T. Rex Baba O'Riley - The Who
  8. I'm starting this thread to list current classic tv networks. Please add any networks or stations you're aware of, even if they're just local. I will add them to our site directory. Retro TV Network Antenna TV Me-TV
  9. Welcome, Gunsmoke fans. Feel free to add your favorite pictures from Gunsmoke to our Gunsmoke photo gallery.
  10. You know, when I was little, I asked for a trenchcoat for Christmas. Can you guess why? LOL. Columbo was definitely a favorite of mine from an early age.
  11. Currently, I'm really digging the Gunsmoke fan fic by Doc Reid. It could use some proofreading, but other than that, the stories really keep me riveted. I love Gunsmoke, so it's nice to have some new adventures. New chapters are added fairly frequently on WIPs, so I don't have to wait long for the next installment.
  12. Oh, I forgot... "He's dead, Jim." ROFL. Many, many years ago, I worked for a hospital. Our second-level manager was named, no kidding, Dr. McCoy. Every time he left the office, my co-workers and I would turn to each other and say "He's dead, Jim."
  13. Peter Falk died today. He was one of my favorite actors. I especially loved him as Columbo and as Sam Diamond in the movie Murder By Death. He was ROFLMAO funny in The In Laws. "Serpentine! Serpentine!" And he was in two of my other favorite movies of all time (aside from Murder By Death), The Great Race ("Push the button, Max!") and The Princess Bride ("Yes you're very smart. Shut up.") LOL. He was truly unique. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2011/06/peter-falk-tvs-columbo-dead-at-83.html
  14. - Twilight Zone I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer. - Dr. McCoy, Star Trek Just the facts, ma'am. - Joe Friday, Dragnet
  15. It's a dog-eat-dog world out there and I'm wearing Milk Bone underwear. -Norm, Cheers. I LOVE that line. One of my favorite Cheers quotes. Norm's got so many quotable lines. I also like this one.. Women. You can't live with 'em. Pass the beernuts. ROFL! I also love when Cliff is trying to market his "beetabaga fajita in a pita". ROFL. I've said that to the hubby before, "Would you like to try a beetabaga fajita in a pita?" and he just stared at me like I was insane. LOL.
  16. Since we've been watching The Honeymooners lately, I have to add: Bang, zoom! To the moon, Alice! Baby, you're the greatest. Then, because I'm such a sci fi geek... I actually use this one a lot... Danger, Will Robinson! And some Mary Tyler Moore, which we've been watching too. Have I mentioned I LOVE all the retro tv networks we get? A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down your pants. (ROFL!) You've got spunk. I hate spunk.
  17. Gotta have some Greatest American Hero quotes. This stinks. I hate this! - Bill Maxwell, TGAH If it's trouble you're looking for, you've just come across the West Coast distributor. - Bill Maxwell, TGAH And of course, one of my favorite words... "scenario"! LOL.
  18. There are some tv shows where you can say a phrase or two and most folks will know exactly which show you're talking about. For example, "Elizabeth! I'm comin' to join ya, honey!" was commonly said on Sanford & Son. Another one was "Sit on it!" from Happy Days. These sayings become popular and are frequently quoted or used in conversation. They're a part of our pop culture. Everyone has their favorites. What are your favorite TV quotes and catch phrases? Some of mine: Book 'em, Danno. - Hawaii Five-o I know nothing! - Hogan's Heroes I love it! I love it! - Dukes of Hazzard I love it when a plan comes together. - The A-Team Beam me up, Scotty - Star Trek (Yeah, I know that exact phrase was never used on the show, but it's become irrevocably tied to the show.) Let's bust some punks! - The Good Guys
  19. I know this blooper is in one of the other Gunsmoke blooper reels I already posted, but it's LOL funny. So, I'm posting a clip of it separately here. It stars Margaret Hamilton, best known as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.
  20. Here's another Gunsmoke blooper reel I found. It's an alternate opening scene. LOL.
  21. I thoroughly enjoyed the Gunsmoke marathon tribute to James Arness this past Saturday on MeTV. But, 11 hours was not enough, so Sunday we had our own Gunsmoke marathon via Netflix. In fact, we watch an hour or two every night. Totally lovin' the Netflix. I've also been reading a bit of Gunsmoke fan fiction. There are some pretty decent stories there that continue the adventures of Marshal Dillon, Miss Kitty, Doc Adams, Festus Haggen, and the rest of the citizens of Dodge City.
  22. James Arness, best known for his role as Marshal Matt Dillon on the long running western Gunsmoke, died on Friday, June 3rd. He left a message to his fans to be posted on his official website in the event of his death in which he thanks them for their support over the years. We fans thank you, Mr. Arness, for the decades of quality entertainment. RIP Marshal Dillon.

  24. I'm watching the premiere of the series Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy on the History Channel. He's visiting moonshiners in Dawsonville Georgia, the Emily Post Institute to learn some manners, and the frog jumping contest in Calaveras County, California. This show might join my regular viewing list. I learned that some of those shine runners could haul 30 jugs of shine at 100 mph. Woowhee! Larry got to drive an old shine running car and visited with Bill Elliott of NASCAR fame. They did donuts out in back of Bill's place. Makes me wish we had room to do that here. I laughed so hard during the Emily Post segment. ROFLMAO. If you didn't catch the premiere tonight, catch the rerun!
  25. Tonight on Brad Meltzer's Decoded, they had a fascinating show about the Georgia Guidestones. They tried to figure out who had them built, if there was any coded message within them, and they dug into some of the beliefs of the Rosicrucians, including mind control. It was pretty interesting. Brad hypothesizes the guidestones were built, during the height of the Cold War, to give guidelines to humanity to rebuild after near annihilation at our own hands. Sounds pretty plausible of all the motives investigated.
