Name that TV Show

Recommended Posts

Thing is,

with both "Andromeda"

and "Earth:the Final Conflict"

(I seem to have a psychological blind-spot on recalling these 2),

I followed a simple logic.

Gene Roddenberry, the Great Bird of the Galaxy, was nearly worshipped among

some Trekkies. If he had a competent SF concept to release, it would have

an automatic audience. (Well, it would for sure once ST:TNG was proven, and

points thereafter.) So, if Roddenberry had ideas for shows, and never followed up

on them, to me, that says he wasn't confident they were worth airing.

And if the writer is not confident they are worth airing, then I certainly am

not confident they are worth WATCHING.

I only watched a couple of episodes of Earth: Final Conflict and never got into it. I did enjoy Andromeda, though.

"Well did you know it was a secret?"

"Yes."

"Oh sure, what's the fun of telling something if it's not a secret?"

That was a quote from a very famous episode of the show, but THIS should give it away:

"Rob!"

"Buddy!"

"Sally!"

"Mel!"

"ROB!!"

"BUDDY!!"

"SALLY!!"

"MEL!!"

Of course.

The first quote was Rob asking Laura why she told about Allan's toupe in an interview.

The second was the usual merry-go-round when Buddy would make a baldie joke about Mel.

I don't know if that phrase verbatim was ever said, but certainly many variations on it.

They seemed to be oblivious to the sexual innuendos. He would have been called 'gopher' or something if they were worried about it.

that's it pawnbroker

the quote was from the episode where Bob's patients are giving him a verbal thanbk you card,but Mr Gianelli didn't show up, with the last line. They read it anyway , and the sec bursts in to announce his death right on cue

not the best example, but it came to mind.

and you drank when someone said "Hi Bob", which was usually good for several beers per episode

I'll run the next one, then.

"She's too busy getting hold of the Husbands."

"How many husbands are there?"

"Six."

"Six?"

"One of the Husbands is a girl."

"One of the husbands is a girl?"

"Yes. That's Murray Husband.

Then there is, uh, Donny Husband...."
