When Family Television Was Good

Posted by Adam Graham on June 9, 2007

Been a bit nostalgic for some of the good family TV shows of the past. Some think they stopped making those about the 1970s. But Pat Robertson’s Family Channel got into the business of making original series and they made a couple gems in Zorro and Bordertown.

Both series had good action, great writing, and some fantastic plots. Zorro’s run was just shy of 100 episodes, while Bordertown ran 78 episodes. The former is only available on two VHS tapes if you can find them used. So, you can see the beginning and end of the series, the middle forget about it. As for Bordertown, you can see a much better selection of it than Zorro, with the 2nd and 3rd episodes from the first season, and the entire third season on one DVD. Don’t ask me why they packaged it that way.

It’s annoying that why shows like “All in the Family,” “Ellen,” and other dribble gets introduced to DVD frequently, family shows get left behind.

A Night On the Town

Posted by Adam Graham on March 16, 2007

I went to see Amazing Grace tonight. I’ll have a review for tomorrow’s podcast. Andrea and I tried not to be hyper-early as we really don’t care fore the pre-movie commercials. The previews we understand, but commercials in the theater, give me a break.

We went to Edwards 21 and wandered around and were invited to watch a little bit of a rehersal for a new Family Friendly improve Comedy place, ComedySportzidaho. I’ll try and catch a show in the next few weeks.

The previews before the movie were mostly okay, though I have to admit my slight annoyance with the Last Mimzy. This is the second Christian-based film I’ve gone to that’s had a preview for the movie featuring psychic kids with their bunny rabbit spirit guide. I think it was playing during the Nativity movie as well. Who chooses the targeting of these ads? This was almost as bad as them trying to sell us on, “Conversations with God” during Facing the Giants. From now on, unless I’m nervous as to whether the movie will be around long enough to make it there, you will only see me in second run theaters.

TV Was Like the Weather

Kudos to George Kao who was frustrated with the junk on television and decided to light a candle rather than curse the darkness. Check out his new web TV network, Issa
