Nothing good appeared until from the advent of the medium until 1981, and then everything went back to sleep again for about 15 years, at which time TV was finally worth watching.
From the meagerness of the responses, everyone can see why I stopped watching TV in 1976.
BTW, my proudest accomplishment was sabotaging "The Judy Garland Show." That's one reason why I'm burning in Hell, along with my stupid programming on CBS during the '60s.
Mary got fired from WJM!!!!
You only know HAPPY DAYS without Chachi Arcola for which you can be glad.
I played a homosexual but no one was allowed to mention the word or even hint about it. The producers made we wear wrist splints.
[quote]Nope. Just a meth dealer, a fat yellow moron and four old ladies obsessed with sex.
I can't figure out who the "fat yellow moron" is.
The TV movie "The New, Original, Wonder Woman" aired in November 1975. It became a series.
Women in power bacame a theme. Did you see Charlie's Angels or The Bionic Woman or any shows then?

well, you missed the basis for the term "jumping the shark" when Fonzie tries this on Happy Days on September 20, 1977.
you're missing nothing because you're probably living your own life instead of watching other people live theirs.
Maude finally became a Congresswoman. And then she died.
R2: I had completely forgot about Denny Terrio!
What was the deal with his sexual harrassment suite against Merv Griffin?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
