    That's my intention.

    Anybody remember seeing an episode of Family Ties where the father shows a magic trick to the family by putting one of the girls in a box and making her disappear, but when he tries to bring her back, she doesn't come back, to which we then see "to be continued"? I recall seeing this episode once, wasn't able to watch the next day to see what happened next, and can't remember what else happened in the episode (I also don't recall which girl did the trick).

    I've recently been looking at a Family Ties episode guide looking for multi-part episodes and then watching some on Daily Motion (just watching part 1 and skipping straight to the ending), with no luck (I haven't tried them all, I have ommitted ones that I figured wouldn't be it.... Or maybe I'm really wrong). At first I thought it might be the episode "It's My Party", which has the youngest one run out on her own party with her new popular friends, which does seem like it - the trick could have been for the party, the girl could have not come back because she wanted to escape, but I see that it's not that one.

    Back when I saw that, I thought that the daughter who did the trick really did disappear and that they really had trouble bringing her back.

    How come nobody said anything about Lindsey Stirling being on DWTS this year? I certainly would have watched for that.

    I know it's not Christmas yet, but I just want to know: Why doesn't Cartoon Network air Olive the Other Reindeer anymore? I used to love watching that every Christmas, and I haven't even seen it on the air for like 3 or 4 years.

    Does CN even play anything that isn't TTG or Seth MacFarlane's shows anymore?

    I'm not sure about Olive, but I remember when they would air Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer several times for Christmas the last several years (they've done that since at least 2005). Personally it would be cool to see them air some of the specials from the classic CN shows, like the EEnE one. I enjoyed seeing that special when it first aired.

    We all certainly wish they would...

    Most of the Garfield specials were adapted into comic book form, in the size of the old Garfield strip collection books, and I know that Garfield: His 9 Lives was an exception, as the special was based on an existing Garfield book (still would have been cool if they'd made a comic book based on the special), but suddenly I feel like I recall there being a book adaptation of a Garfield special that was NOT a comic book, just a regular storybook, but I can't remember which special. Am I right that there was a Garfield special that was adapted into a storybook instead of a comic book, or could I just be thinking of His 9 Lives (which I'm sure I'm not, but memory can be sketchy at times).

    I loved Olive when I was younger and I would also like to see it again. Here's an interesting fact: Did you know that Olive the Other Reindeer was made by the same guy who created The Simpsons?

    In the Kirby series of video games, is Kirby a species of creatures or is he just one of his own kind? I'm just wondering if there's a bunch of Kirbies kind of like how there's more than one Yoshi in the Super Mario series or if he's just his own thing?

    Considering that Meta Knight is also a round blob with beady eyes, maybe he is a species.

    Your right. Meta Knight has always reminded me of a blue Kirby wearing a mask.

    @D'Snowth, it's been amply documented (by you and others) how during M*A*S*H, how unbearable the weather in Korea was. Broiling hot in the summer, freezing in the winter.
    But during the finale, right around July 27, 1953, (you would assume would be 100 degrees in the shade). But in the very last scene when Hawkeye and BJ say goodbye, see the heavy coats they're wearing?

    None like it hot in Korea, but it must've been a brisk day at the Fox Ranch.
    In all fairness, it might've been chilly in late '82 when they filmed the finale.
    But after so many episodes were devoted to summer heat, what's a summer day in Korea without your fatigue jacket?

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Definitely a fluke, lol. IIRC, the finale was actually filmed in the middle of fall like in October or so (you can see some orange trees in the background from time to time), so yeah, I imagine it may have been chilly when filming the finale. Of course, the cast has talked about the drastic change in temperatures filming out there on a daily basis, ranging from the teens early in the morning, soaring to well over 100 in the afternoon; Alan Alda has said how he and Wayne Rogers were freezing in their Hawaiian shirts filming the opening sequence for the pilot where they're playing golf on the helipad, meanwhile I remember Loretta Swit talking about an incident where an extra or crew member nearly died from heat stroke.

    Why do a lot of Star Wars fans believe that Jar-Jar singlehandedly started the rise of the Sith? I can understand why they hate Jar-Jar for being an annoying character but I don't really understand how he could've possibly had anything to do with Palpatine's rise to power, unless I'm missing something.

    Honest question, but would you guys say I sound too privileged if I mentioned I don't care for politics? Like, sure, I do occasionally pop in on the true colors thread, but even then, I'll be honest, I find talking about politics can give me a headache, esp with what happened in that sewer leakage year known as 2016.

    As I've been saying repeatedly ever since Trump got into Office - I hate politics with a passion, but with all that Trump is doing to the country (and not doing as far as his presidential duties are concerned), it's hard not to get political about anything right now.

    But nah, if anything, I'm probably an unpatriotic jerkwad for refusing to go out and ring doorbells last year when the local political party kept calling on me to do so: I'm not going to waste my or other people's time by dropping in on people and asking them to vote for someone I don't even know.
  17. LittleJerry92

    LittleJerry92 Well-Known Member

    Only reason I brought that up was because I was once told "If I don't care about politics, I don't care about the people around me" (yeah, okay).

    Well, I guess that could be true because 1) I am cautious of who I talk to 2) I've lost alot of respect for people in general so whatever and 3) I want to focus on my own issues in life unless it is someone I am close to or if they're family members or whatever.

    Aren't those the lyrics to that Rachel Platten song? "This is my fight song, I wear a dirty thong, and smoke from Danny's (Bonaduce) boooooong, and I don't really care for nobody else but meeeee"?

    Never heard that song, but sounds like something that would describe me.

    It's been a long time since I've seen STUART LITTLE 2, so maybe I'm just not remembering the details or anything, but what exactly was that falcon's motive for stealing valuables from people? What would he have gained from doing such?
