    They had an apparent Oopsie on set and filming has been shut down.

    BIP is strictly for the lulz. It's also where the franchise techs and producers get to make fun of the show -- I am convinced BIP is a show deidcated to people like me who Hate Watch the Bachelor.

    BTW, the current Bachelorette is a good example of why the franchise needs to be over the top. This edition has a completely sane, funny, relatively smart Bachelorette and a stable of non-violent, non-substance abusing studs, and it's unwatchably boring. The show needs Drunken Lisa talking to shrubbery, or Juan Pablo telling three sexual conquests within 36 hours that they are each his "special one," or Chad scrabbling at the door in the shadows like an opossum.

    For years I have b-tched that the best series in television history, Remember WENN, is not available on DVD.

    I just discovered it is on Youtube. Every episode.

    Re: TV: The Golden Era Reborn

    Anyone else here ever watch the US version of Gordon Ramsay's F Word? Interesting tactic to make it live (still waiting for someone to slip up and that other F word to come out), and still retains its food magazine charm. If his family happen to come out for the summer, a part of me hopes Tilly gets a segment or two, as she does quite well with her children's show in the UK, and would connect well with families on how to prepare food. Not sure I like the green screen wall feature, as it seems the producers are still convinced cussing brings ratings, so they have to try to force that in. Too bad he isn't raising animals over the season, but given the steps you have to go through and the time it takes when considering it's a live series, I'm not surprised. It's a very good summer show, and I certainly hope it sticks around for a few years.

    Started watching The Crown on Netflix tonight. It's very good. I always wonder, though, how true to life it actually is. And Holy Smokes the production of this show could keep cigarette companies in business for some time.

    Those were the times. Same can be said for Mad Men.

    But I agree, that show is great. I also enjoyed "Victoria" on PBS. Rufus Sewell is the man.

    One of the best scenes in Mad Men was early on (S1 I think) two housewives are talking and chain smoking while they rock their babies. Takes all the discipline you have not to reach through the screen and pluck their cigarettes away.

    Fun fact for a kid who grew up in the 70s: I never saw anyone smoke in real life until high school. Where I grew up, smoking was a class marker.

    As a child of the 70's I can't recall cigarettes not being prevalent even if my parents themselves were not smokers. TC suburbia for reference.

    Lawn Guyland, 1975. Suffolk Cty of course. Nassau was blue collar and smoker city.

    Social Strat is still pretty bad on LI but in the 70s it was basically a caste system.

    A scene from the movie Dazed And Confused was similar. Mother smoking, while pregnant, IIRC, and the clerk giving her advice about healthy stuff......um..........
