TV Tuesday
This week it's about you and what you remember about TV!! :)

1. What's your fondest memory of something on TV?
Well, I'm certainly not quite as bad as Bill Murray in Scrooged (stop laughing, Barry!), but I do have a lot of fond memories of things on TV. Some of my strongest memories are of watching classic Star Trek episodes with my dad, the first or second time I saw them (long before I had them memorized like I do now). In fact, some of those that I watched with my dad are still some of my all-time favorites. Also, I have special memories of a couple of Doctor Who related things. One was the first time I saw the show--it was a hot day, I'd seen all of the classic Trek repeats (this was before TNG!) and my dad said, "Have you tried this Doctor Who show?" I am sure he regrets it to this day, but I hadn't and he flipped it over. The rest is, sad to say, fan-boy history. The first Doctor I met in person was the seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy and this was long before his episodes worked their way over to the U.S. I remember at the mini-con I attended, I asked him if he'd run into the Daleks yet and he replied he hadn't but he'd go back and tell them that I wanted to see them. Well, the next season led off with a Dalek story, which I've always assumed was put into production because of my request. OK, so maybe in reading that, I am as sad as Bill Murray in Scrooged...

2. What's the first show you remember watching regularly?
Benson. In fact, at the time, ABC ran promos for it where Benson and Kraus are in a convience store and Kraus says, "Vanishing cream" and Benson replies, "My treat!" Anyway, the first episode I saw was this one and I loved it. I used to watch it with Dad when Mom was out at choir. I also remember tuning into Battlestar Galatica and Buck Rogers when they were first on. (In fact, my dad worked with Gil Gerard's brother). Again, most of these shows were watched with Dad.

3. What is the (pick one: stupidest, saddest, silliest, most disgusting..) thing you've ever seen on TV?
There are a lot of the current glut of reality shows that just plain, out and out stink. I like Survivor, I like The Amazing Race and the Apprentice is good. But some of these on FOX just make me cringe--Who Wants to Marry A Millionaire? Trading Spouses?!? What the hell?!? They cancel good stuff like Firefly for this crap! (Even though I'm getting a movie, I'm still pissed we didn't get the complete vision of Firefly that Joss Whedon had!)

~Bonus~What's the best series finale you remember?
It's interesting that you ask this--so many of the shows I enjoy watching have ended in the past couple of years. Of course, there was the superb endings to Buffy and Angel, the nicely done last episodes of TNG and DS9. The finale of Farscape annoyed me, simply because it wasn't intended to be the end of the show and they thought they had another year. The series finale for Babylon Five was well done, but after the fifth season stood out like a sore thumb, it lost something. (I need to go back and re-watch the entire series). I remember the X-Files finale for being so annoyed that it was so bad. And the Seinfeld finale--not to great end to a great show. But there are two that just stand out. One is, of course, the classic ending to Newhart. If you haven't seen it--shame on you! The second is probably lesser known. There was this crappy show that aired on ABC Friday nights after Benson in the mid to late 80's. It was called I Married Dora. It was kind of the less refined version of Whose The Boss.  (Yeah, I know...I have no idea how it's possbile either!)Anyway, the last episode aired and it was supposed to be some type of cliffhanger--well, they're building up to it when suddenly the male lead comes in and says, "It doesn't really matter, we got cancelled" and is holding a pink slip. I don't remember anything about the rest of the show, but I do remember that.
