When I was a kid...

Why do cartoons suck nowadays? I think this is colov, but Saturday morning TV is awful now. I remember when I was a kid, I'd get up bright and early on Saturday mornings and watch Scooby Doo, Pee Wee's Playhouse, Muppet Babies, Flintstone Kids, Smurfs, Alvin & the Chipmunks, The Real Ghostbusters, & Mighty Mouse. That's some good shit right there. I'd watch all those if they were still on TV right now (AHIK*). I woke up early on Saturday this weekend and turn on the TV and there's nothing but garbage on the tube. There are 1 brazilian more channels than we had when I was a kid and there are less good shows on Saturday mornings for kids. I don't get it. When did it go wrong? Like, what year did they decide "You know what, let's make kid shows on Saturday mornings just awful". So that's a big reason why I'm not big into cartoons now. The kids' ones suck, and I don't think the "adult" cartoons are that grate* at all. So there.

I think the same goes for sitcom television as well. The 80s had great sitcoms that our family would sit and watch every week. You know, before the parents decided to get divorced. Woe. But I digress. But we'd have dinner and then go into the family room and watch the same shows every week. Maybe I don't notice it now because I don't really have a family with kids yet, but it doesn't seem like there are any quality sitcoms that are on nowadays. All the shit that's on in the evening is either a reality show, a contest show like AI (which I guess would be considered a reality show), or some garbage shit like Ugly Betty. I know I'm sounding like an old fuck right now but shit just ain't the same.

Next on the hot tub time machine, remember what it was like to be able to go out and play in the neighborhood and not have to worry about people kidnapping you? Man, those were the good ol' days. I would leave the house at 10 in the morning and be out on my bike all day and be home in time for dinner at 6 or 7:00 and there were no worries at all for my mom. She knew that we were never in harms way. But now, that is a huge concern of mine. I'm probably going to be a way overprotective parent, which I guess isn't horrible. But I read that shit on the news all the time about kidnappings and that shit freaks me out.

So to recap: The 80s were >>>>> than today.

Shitty softball team won 19-5 last night. Last week when I didn't go, then won 21-2. So we're 3-1 now and the only loss was when we had to forfeit. Maybe they decided to make a lower division this season and didn't tell us. That's the only explanation.

I enjoy NBC's Thursday night lineup and ABC on Wednesdays are solid (The Middle and Modern Family are grate, and Cougar Town is decent).
-I've also heard good things about Big Bang Theory, but never seen it.

-That's about it for me though

BLUE said...

was he related to marlon byrd?

and EP, I'll change the name/pic when I get home from work today and keep it until next Tuesday

BLUE said...

"it doesn't seem like there are any quality sitcoms that are on nowadays"


it's true...because people in hollywood are lazy and would rather just have a cheap reality show like the bachelor than creating an interesting well written television show.

keith didn't like He-MAN, GI joe, transformers? He was a fairy princess.

stop it

i argue with people all the time about this there are a ton of shows on cable that are quality and i'm not just talking sitcoms

if that's what your talking about i dont know much about sitcoms

El Padrino said...

"keith didn't like He-MAN, GI joe, transformers? He was a fairy princess."

Thundercats bitch. Act like you know. Also Inspector Gadget.

i had he-man sheets

I don't have cable, maybe that's the difference, you're a cable snob.

100%, no cable

El Padrino said...

that certainly is strange

Steve said...

"I don't have cable"

I've been thinking about canceling mine. You can download more movies and tv shows via Net Flix than you could ever watch. And all the NEW shows can be watched on the internet the following day.

BLUE said...

yeah, or you could get satellite

Grass Fairy said...

sports is the main reason I will never cut off my cable

Grass Fairy said...

well, I should say it will never happen...just that I really really really hope I'll never have to resort to that

Grass Fairy said...

*I shouldn't say

BLUE said...

"sports is the main reason I will never cut off my cable"

you can get sports on satellite too

tem said...

"100%, no cable"

he has satelite.

Fuck all of you. Can we cancel O:FB now?

oh so he has cable

El Padrino said...

"Fuck all of you. Can we cancel O:FB now?"

karma for not mailing my beer

tem said...

"oh so he has cable"

no, he has satelite.

El Padrino said...

so on satelite, do you get cable channels?

BLUE said...

if boston quit being such a douchebag city, we would cancel O:FB.


behold the power of cheese

fine, sports is the main reason I will never cut off pay tv

if cliff lee agrees to an extension with the mets there is a strong chance they will consummate a deal

"so on satelite, do you get cable channels?"

no, i get satellite channels

BLUE said...

like NFL network and Sunday Ticket

El Padrino said...

"like NFL network and Sunday Ticket"

what about TNT or FX or HBO?

El Padrino said...

if you get cable channels via sat dish you still "have cable", technically

BLUE said...

what makes them cable channels?

BLUE said...

i mean, when I had cable I got Fox and ABC and NBC...are those cable channels



this is an awful fucking discussion.

c'mon LOV quit being gay today

El Padrino said...

"what makes them cable channels?"

Keef said...

"cable is where its at"

That's all reality shit

El Padrino said...

"That's all reality shit"

that's because it took a few days for the shows to get to wava

Keef said...

"i remember scooby doo being on in the mornings before I went to school"


Yeah it was on then, too. The Saturday morning shit was the Scooby Doo COmedy Hour or something like that

tem said...

"that's because it took a few days for the shows to get to wava"

actually because of sen byrd we got the shows first.

For what it's worth, the paper here seems to think that Joe Johnson is going to sign with the Knicks for less money than the Hawks will offer him.

No way Lebron or Wade would want to be 1A or 1B

BLUE said...

"No way Lebron or Wade would want to be 1A or 1B"

I think Lebron thinks he can be 1B...

I think he's more interested in winning 12 straight championships than being considered the best player on a team.

He's a damn fool

Inside joke hilarity

BLUE said...

"YS, B?"

lebron doesn't have that "killer" instinct in him..he's way more Magic than he is Michael...and while he's extremely talented, i don't think he cares about getting caught up in being the best player...he'd rather win...i mean he doesn't pout when he's not the best player on team USA (of course that's only for 2 weeks every 4 years), but I think, he thinks he can be like that.

he'll find out differently though

tem said...

"Futurama has new episodes"

the two i saw last thursday were great. big fan.

BLUE said...

I think the other guys (bosh and wade) would have trouble being second fiddle (although Bosh is the perfect sidekick type)

El Padrino said...

by the way you need more than 3 people to win a title, everyone is assuming that wherever lebron goes they have these scenarios that other players will come and build these super squads and they will win forever

it's nonsense

El Padrino said...

for instance that all-star team jug listed has one major flaw

in 2011 they'll be unable to improve the team without trading one of those "all-stars" because they'll at or over the cap so they'll only be able to use the MLE which might be gone by the next collective BA

Steve said...

is ANYBODY making the case that LBJ is going to stay in Cleveland?

El Padrino said...

in other words if lebron goes to chitown it will cripple the salary cap beyond 2010-11 campaign

Keef said...

"Inside joke hilarity"


But the people that said it don't know

Grass Fairy said...

"After Biden asked what he owed for his tasty frozen treat, Kopp's Frozen Custard manager Scott Borkin quipped, "Don't worry, it's on the house. ... Lower our taxes and we'll call it even."

Biden initially brushed off Borkin's comment — but then circled back to the manager and asked, "Why don't you say something nice instead of being a smarta-- all the time?"

-take it down a couple notches there Biden; and why the "all the time" part? Do you know each other? Do you go to custard shops in Wisconsin regularly?
