Week 19 - Memories
This week it's about you and what you remember about TV!! :)
1. What's your fondest memory of something on TV?
Sitting with a big group of friends and watching "Star Trek: The Next Generation" premiere back in '87. I bought my first VCR that day so I could tape it.
Does my whole bloody life revolve around sci-fi? Sometimes it seems so...
2. What's the first show you remember watching regularly?
Probably "The Bugaloos" on Saturday Mornings back in the late 60's. They were followed closely by H.R. Pufnstuf, et al.
3. What is the (pick one: stupidest, saddest, silliest, most disgusting..) thing you've ever seen on TV?
One of the later episodes of "Farscape" had the most disgusting things I've ever seen, that still turns my stomach. One of the villains was able to mind-control our intrepid crew by using a device that PULLED OUT THEIR EYEBALLS about 4-5 inches in front of their face and clamped a chip onto their stretched out optic nerve. I will never be able to watch that epidode again.
~Bonus~ (From the hubby! LOL) What's the best series finale you remember?
The series finale for "M*A*S*H" was really 5 episodes strung together, and some of the plots had little to do with the other as the episode went along. But they were 5 really good episodes :)
The three modern Trek finales (TNG: "All Good Things", DS9: "What You Leave Behind" and VOY: "Endgame") were all good, but not spectacular.
I'm still mad I missed the "Mad About You" finale. "Seinfeld"'s was pointless and "Friends" was good, but predictable.
But the best? Johnny Carson's final regular episode of "The Tonight Show" - the one with Robin Williams and Bette Midler. (Bette sang a special version of "One More for the Road" to Johnny that we have on one of her albums.) True the following night's episode was the real finale, but it was just clips of the past. This was the true finale.
