Bastards! They called Mr. Belvedere one of the worst TV Shows ever! (growl!)

Oh hell, also Beauty and the Beast and Small Wonder. Well okay, I can't defend the latter....

Never saw it, but wasn't the star Greg Evigan? He was kind of a hottie. :)

I remember Mr. Belvedere. I also don't remember much of Beauty and the Beast, except it had Linda Hamilton, that really tall guy as a lion thing, and Vincent would ride around on the top of subway cars sometimes.

That really tall guy was Ron Perlman. We've talked about him. :)

It t0ok a long time before I saw an episode with the shot of him on top of the subway car. That was hilarious. :)

The show tried to go on without Hamilton, but...not so much.

There's one stupid joke from Mr. Belvedere that's still stuck in my head.

Mr. Belvedere- Which fraternity is that, I Ate A Pie?
College Kid- That's I _Theta_ Pi!

actually, now that I think about it, The Fifth Element was one of the top 5 worst movies of the year for that year, I think per People Magazine. I remember thinking that was odd, especially because it was a great movie.

Okay, that _is_ fucked-up.

Though it's a lot more believable if you had issues with CGI and/or Sci-Fi in general.

The Opera sequence is one of my favorites of all time, though.

Mine too :) And how the opera music matched up with Leeloo's fighting scene ;)

I liked how they matched up the two scenes with Zorg opening the chest and the stones weren't there, then it cuts to Leeloo laughing...then to Zorg saying "Does anyone care to explain how this happened?" Then cut to Leeloo explaining it to Cornelius. That was such a cool part how they just matched the two together :)

They did that a couple of times in the movie. Awesome writing, putting scenes together to cross-cut like that.

Yeah, but my favourite cross-cutting scene was that particular one ;)

And the music was awesome too! Normally I'm not a fan of that style of music (like during the cab chasing scene) but I really liked it in the movie :)

I remember watching Mr. Belvedere, but I don't remember much of the episodes anymore...

I LOVED watching Beauty and the Beast! =D I was the kind of kid who hated doing homework, but I would always hurry up and do it so I could watch the show at night :) I also have two episodes on video (one of them I found at a video store, the other was one that a friend gave to me cuz she was getting rid of it).

I remember not really liking the show after Hamilton's character died...it just wasn't the same afterwards =P

And...OMG, I remember Small Wonder too! Although...I really didn't like that show all that much =P

How could they list Happy Days as one of the worse TV shows? O.o That was such an awesome show!

And I remember Manimal too! =D For the short time it was on TV, I LOVED that show! Especially when the guy turned into the panther :) I watched the transformation scene of it on YouTube...and yeah, it looks corny now, but when you're a 7-year-old kid, it was the best special effects EVAR! Even after watching it now, 24 years after seeing it when I was 7, they put a lot of work into it. Heck, I wouldn't even mind seeing some of the episodes again.

I watched Mr. Belvedere for a long time. Something about smart-assed people with sophisticated accents still appeals to me. Stewie from Family Guy is the same way.

I wish I'd seen more of Beauty and the Beast when it was on. I mostly caught it while it was showing on Sci Fi., but missed enough episodes that I never quite figured out the larger stories of the series...or I don't remember them.

When you have a show that focuses on the relationship between two people, it's going to suffer when one of them bites it. :) I wish I knew what actually happened in the show after that, like whether Vincent ever got his baby back.

I never watched Small Wonder, but thought it was an interesting premise. I wonder whether they ever did anything really good with it?

My understanding is that Happy Days was awesome until Fonzie quite literally jumped the shark. I remember watching it but I don't remember much about it.

Never saw Manimal, sorry to say.

Beauty and the Beast was on SciFi?!? O.O Dang it ...I wish I had a TV guide to look through so I know what's on half the time =P

I don't remember too much of a lot of the episodes from Beauty and the Beast...I *think* Vincent got his baby back. And I *think* he found another girl, but it just wasn't the same as with Katherine...I can't remember if it worked out or not, or if he kept trying to get her to be more like Katherine...It's been forever since I've seen it. I should check to see if they have the show in Seasons on DVD or something...

I don't remember too much about Manimal...I only remember that it was about a guy who could change into any animal he chooses, and he solved crimes and stuff. He mostly used three particular animals that he would change into: black panther, hawk, and...something else I can't remember now. I do remember a couple episodes where he changed into a snake, or he changed into a white fluffy kitty cat (he was spying on a lady and she heard some noise coming from a closet, so he changed to resemble her cat). I don't remember much else from the show. Here's the Panther transformation if you wanna see it :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iQ-mzYRl3s
