Hi, what are you looking for?


The Retro Report: Eulogies Wanted For Classic TV Dads, Land of The LOST (GIRL), ROGUE NATION Could Use Some Classic Cameos & More!

The Waltons and The Brady Bunch should each do one more reunion movie addressing the loss of their respective TV dads (Ralph Waite as John Walton, Robert Reed as Mike Brady), while Little House on the Prairie could never compare to The Waltons with regard to scripts, acting and directing.

Has it really be two decades years since Everybody Loves Raymond’s debut and ten years since Everybody Hates Chris?

Kathy Coleman’s new book, Lost Girl, is astounding memoir of the former Land of the Lost star’s life.

Frasier was the last great TV sitcom and surpassed in quality all the way around the show from which it spawned (Cheers).

Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 5 (aka Rouge Nation) will drop in theatres in July, and it would be great to see Martin Landau and Barbara Bain (stars of the original TV M:I) in cameos (but that’s not gonna’ happen).

Anyone up for a sequel to One Million Years B.C. starring Raquel Welch?

The Dark Shadows 1795 (origins of Barnabas) and 1897 (origins of Quentin) timelines are the best of the series, while the 2012 Tim Burton/Johnny Depp Dark Shadows feature film did a GREAT disservice to original Dark Shadows stars Jonathan Frid, Kathryn Leigh Scott, David Selby and Lara Parker.

The original title of Dynasty, ABC’s classic prime-time soap about oil?  Oil.   The title of ABC’s planned new prime-time soap about oil?  Oil.

They made the right call

Peace to lovers of all things classic.
