While I was posting to another thread, (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman) I recalled several TV shows that I had no choice but to watch, because my grandparents watched them, and I had no control over what…Continue

OK. We all know the Herman's Hermits song "Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter"; BUT, there was a response to this song recorded. I've heard the response once, and only once, in my lifetime. I…Continue

"Way back when the song "Devil Woman" was quite popular. To this day, I can't look at this character without an altered version of that song's refrain flooding my mind: "He's just a Devil Dinosaur, with evil on his…"

John DeRubbo replied to The Baron's discussion Movies I Have Seen Lately
"I finally saw "Suicide Squad". I'm glad I waited to rent it, rather than seeing it in the theaters. It did have some great elements; but, having the right ingredients doesn't guarantee a tasty stew. This movie proves it."

"I've been reading just about all of Jean Shepherd's books. If your only exposure to his works are the "Ralphie" movies, you may be surprised at the actual literary versions. Shepherd not only retains the nostalgic,…"

John DeRubbo replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Riverdale': First Look
"I'm not sure if the second one you refer to was the late 1970's pilot. I remember thinking it was quite funny and Archie-like. One segment had to do with Jughead goofing on "Archibald" and "Reginald" only…"

John DeRubbo replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Riverdale': First Look
"This seems to me like way too much a teen drama, rather than a teen comedy. Any attempt at an all ages appeal looks to have been jettisoned in favor of a more youth targeted audience. Yes, I know it's Archie, and thereby youth oriented by…"

John DeRubbo replied to Emerkeith Davyjack's discussion How Many Continuity Comic Strips Are Still Running ?
""Continuity" is an interesting description. I wouldn't consider Snuffy Smith to be continuity driven; but, the strip began as Barney Google, morphing into Snuffy as time went on. Barney continues to appear in the strip from time to…"

"I was thinking of a similar line from Rocketeer. Upon realizing he was part of a Nazi plot, the head gangster says "I may be a criminal, but I'm an American criminal". He and his men then assist the good guys."
