TVme will be a blog about what is, was and will be on television, partly commentary, partly factual reporting. A special focus will be what's on regular TV (antenna).
I can see a lot of people worked really hard on this TV show. The sound is contemporary for the times and the special effects are interesting. The show ran for 99 episodes and produced some related TV movies and a spin-off, The Bionic woman.
The show ran from 1974-1978. Though the show was popular in it's time, there was a new wave of quality shows coming of age at that time, most notably Police Story.
The Six Million Dollar Man was a decent concept at the time. Today it is no longer compelling to watch.
I was enjoying a good post by rogue_skydragon called The future of "The Office" (US). Not wanting to ruin the post by turning it into a bash Charlie direction, I thought I would blog it instead.
I think they should hire Charlie Sheen, he did a good job in replacing Michael J. Fox on Spin City, his improvisational skills might be interesting as that is a large part of how the show is shot. Maybe he'll be a "good boy" and get a few more years out of the show.
As far as the current actors not liking the idea, I don't think any of them but Craig Robinson and John Krasinski have wonderful career paths ahead of them enough to complain.
Somebody will put Charlie Sheen back on TV and soon so why not give him an established vehicle to carry?

I was reading a frihost forums thread called Don't hate, educate!!! Most loved man in the world - who? (http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-65411.html) It's a very interesting thread in the way that readers would reply with a man's (or deity's) name and then at the same time add why they might also not be liked. I didn't reply to the thread because I am an American and my likes and dislikes mostly revolve around television people or sports figures and my perspective would be too limited.
I think the most loved man in America is Regis Philbin. Regis has been a TV legend for over 50 years and you'd think that someone that popular would have detractors just to be contrary. He doesn't. I've never heard anyone disparage him.
Talkshow hosts all love him, Letterman, Leno and Conan all have them on their shows anytime he wants to come on. The three of them don't like each other much but they all seem to have stories of hanging out with the guy.
There has been no scandal, there have been no unearthed secrets. The man is a saint. And hilarious. I can't think of another celebrity with such a reputation. Can you?
- I didn't think so.
Like a lot of people I let Firefox automatically download the latest version of it's browser a few weeks ago. Usually when this happens Firefox has probably added some bug-fix or stronger security feature and the user never sees much different. This not the case this time. It is obvious that Firefox felt the need to permanently use the feature "Do you want Firefox to remember the password for..." and then gives you the choices of "Remember", "Never for this site" and "Not Now".
I really like this handy feature because I am always on my girlfriends computer. I always click "Never for this site". With version 3.6.3 I have to click "Never for This Site" Every time I use any password anywhere. For some reason Firefox thinks this is necessary. I don't like having to do it, but let's say that's OK.
They should eliminate the "Never" choice since it's really doing the same "Not Now" thing.
What part of "Never" does Firefox not understand?
