Heh. You boys were young once, with flowing manes of hair and stonewashed jeans, so you like things from that happy time period. Let me assure you, however, that the original CHiPs stunk on ice.

This gen poking fun at our gen and the stuff we thought was cool. looking back at those shows...Chips, Starsky & Hutch, Dragnet...they are kind of lame now...But then it was entertainment. Even my favorite Rockford Files...when I see the show now...well its not lame, but it isn't as cool as it was back in the day....

Stunk indeed. We watched it only because we had exactly three shows to choose from in that time slot. The acting was bad. The stories were horrible. But c'mon man. . .cops on motorcycles! Girls with big hair in tight clothes! How can you not like that?

As a young boy of 7-8, I loved this show:

A few years ago I saw the dvd set and bought it. That show is horrible...HORRIBLE!

Erin Gray is still hot, though.

It's hard for me to tell whether it's even bothering to poke fun, since it doesn't seem ironical. Rather, it seems simply "reimagined".

At lot of that material is good. At the very least, it's historically significant. Though before my time, watch The Naked City. IMO, it still holds up as one of the best and most innovative cop-shows in a Late-Modernist key.

My opinion's not as low as yours (I, too, have the dvds). But 'tis no Galactica, I admit.

Too bad Gary Coleman's not here to reprise his role.

I like dragnet. I like the Rockford Files a lot. Check, have a couple of drinks and make sure nobody is looking, I can enjoy a Murder, She Wrote. But CHiPs was bad, ok?

And the stuff from my time period hasn't aged well--ah, the 80s and 90s, when all you hippies grew up and decided to be soulless, greedy bastards on an unprecedented scale. The Cosby Show?--bah. Growing Pains?--refried trash. Soulless. Just for money.

We could use a Twilight Show again.

Seriously? Archie was my favorite comic growing up. After a few decades away, I learned Archie died due to his antigun activism, I lost all faith in humanity. We are a nation of, well I can't post it here. But, dang.

I heard about a new subculture today: Nerdfighteria.

I don't get it.

Really? They expect you to defend them. Progressive, my Aunt Fanny. You just pick and choose what you want to be conservative about.

Remember this and govern yourself accordingly. You seem to want everybody to respond to what they don't understand in an understanding manner. That's fair enough: every one of us should. But we'll fail from time to time. But so should you, Sir. The Lord's Prayer isn't one sided-we are only forgiven as we forgive.

I want people to encounter what they don't understand and then learn to understand. I don't care if anyone responds at all. Forgiveness has nothing to do with it. They, as far as I know, have done nothing needing forgiveness.
