    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    That's been a great commercial, especially for the under-30 crowd (no longer me ). First saw it last week, during a Colbert break.

    Didn't see the commercial, but that is a great commercial. I'm over the hill, FTR.

    I'm still young enough, however, that I did not see it until I was late 20s. When it ran, I was 3-5 years old.

    I was 10 when I watched for the first time and I was scared of bob. I saw it first run.

    I was 9-10, and Mom wouldn't let me watch it.

    Besides, heaven help you if you told my mom she couldn't watch Murder She Wrote.

    I always assumed it was a 10 PM show. Is that not true? I know the early ratings suggest otherwise.

    Nothing wrong with Murder She Wrote, but it was not Twin Peaks.

    I know. But Mom had her habits and she didn't want to try anything new.

    But later in life, I got her hooked on Scrubs. And she came around on a few of my shows.

    I've also been binge watching Scrubs. When I caught up with the show on Comedy Central, they edited some of the good stuff out, including Dr. Cox's rant about things he cares as little about as our last week.

    Dr. Cox: ...and Hugh Jackman.
    JD: Hugh Jackman is Wolverine! How dare he!

    It was not a 10pm show. I'm pretty sure it was an 8pm show. Maybe 9. Or maybe I'm totally wrong and it was a 10pm. Because I'm old too. The memory. It's the first thing to go!

    Wiki says it was Thursday nights at 9, with the 1st season finale at 10.

    Basically it went head-to-head with Cheers, during the time when NBC's Thursday night lineup was an absolute juggernaut.

    Sigh... well now I'm not sure if I even want to watch that episode. Been sitting on my DVR but now knowing there is no payoff I may lose it. I'll make sure to have a few drinks before I start it.

    Re: TV: The Golden Era Reborn

    I'm really getting fed up with some friends on my Facebook feed whining about how ABC's Last Man Standing was canceled "because of Tim Allen's politics!"

    No, it was canceled because it was produced by 20th Century Fox and wasn't returning the profit margin that in-house ABC programs could for the same ratings.

    If the show is so popular, why isn't FOX picking it up itself for FOX, FX, or FXX?

    You do. To put it in other terms, total fluffer ep.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Solid ep......Still dunno what to think about Henry's role in the show.....he's half-in, half-out.....

    Gonna be a heckuva finale this season, for sure. Lots of ways to go with what is going on.....
