The perfect example of uncreative rehash was last night's Charlie Brown 1 hour Show....drug out and paraded, like a cat with a dead rat, EVERY cliche associated with Charlie Brown. Paraded them one after the other, and none funny. No plot that I could see, more of a structure to hang boredom from.

I don't know who the intended audience was...not clever enough for adults, boring for kids. I keep wanting it to be better, it never is.

And while it's a re-hashed, re-used storyline, GLAD has still found time to be incensed. So, after our discussion about the 'imagined' war on Christmas, maybe now we can also discuss the 'imagined' war on trans-genders!

What exactly are you referring to? A google of GLAD Charlie Brown didn't turn up anything for me. Could you provide a link--I'd be curious.

As to the "imagined" war on transgendered people, are you saying that you think there is little or no discrimination against them?

Well skipping over the last 2 posts because I am so confused I think what happens is a lot of times people like to be so clever and just don't want to be entertained. That way they can feel superior. That is how they are entertained.

Sorry Danny, the previous two posts by Rockwall and me really should have ended up in the war on Christmas thread.
So Rock, or others who want to continue down that line, I'll see you there. Smile

Sorry, I meant to include the link with my post. It was late.
The post is in regards to the new sitcom so I would respectfully suggest it belongs under this topic.

As a straight white guy, I'm offended that Archie Bunker was the butt of so many jokes in "All in The Family."

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Well if it's appropriate in this day and age to bring back the cross-dressing comedy stereotype, why don't we bring back "Amos and Andy" while we're at it? Imagine, they could even cast Bill O'Reilly, in blackface, as the Kingfish!

But maybe that would be a bad idea. (Or am I just being too PC?)

:eek:

Yes because we all know that straight white guys are an oppressed minority.

I guess it just depends on your worldview.

It's nice to know that no matter where I go, or what I do with my time, I can always come back here and everything will still be the same. I find comfort in this.
