Remember These Terrible Sitcoms? Hello Larry. 70''s And 80's.

Here are some sitcoms that I wouldn't even spend 5 seconds to stop and make fun if I passed them on the dial. Although a few will never see the light of day so I'm safe.

Fish - Hated this show. Especially that slimy looking creep in the 33 Jersey. His mouth moved weirdly when he talked like he had marbles in there. But I did see Abe Vigoda coming out of my hotel once in LA.

Hello Larry - Different Strokes spin off. Great career move McLean Stevenson. Hmmmm stay on M.A.S.H or go on Hello Larry? Let me see.... Except Kim Richards there on the right? I used to have a crush on her. Did you know she's Paris Hilton's aunt?

Makin' It - They tried to ride the coat tails of Saturday Night Fever. And failed. And even used Travolta's sister in the cast. Nice try. But catchy gay ass theme song.

Jennifer Lived Here - Boy lives with a hot and sassy ghost. Dumb. But I had some drinks with that kid (as an adult) in a hotel bar a few years ago. He was thrilled to be recognized.

What A Country - Any show that has a 6:30 Saturday time slot is a failure in my book. Hated this show!

Gimme a Break - No YOU give me a break. Never could take more than a few minutes of this nonsense before angrily turning the channel. Why are there so man fat black ladies with attitude on sitcoms?

They're just a few random ones. There are so many more.

That Lauri Hendler was in EVERYTHING it seems back in the 70's and early 80's.

You forgot Too Close For Comfort. Which I have watched recently. Painful.

Dr Zibbs said...

TC - Hated that too. And Jim J Bullock was supposed to be straight in that?? It also ruined my love of Ted Knight.

Seeing Abe Vigoda coming out of your hotel: Cool.

Seeing Abe Vigoda coming out of your hotel room: Creepy.

Scope he looked miserable.

Maude- people only watched that show for AB's boobs.
Ann Jillian (Jennifer Slept Here) was sort of a Loni Anderson wannabe.
How about that guy's sweater in What a Country? Blinding.
Abe Vigoda, loved him in that cop show that I can't remember the name of. Also great in The Godfather.

Annika said...

I've never even heard of any of those. Guess I haven't been missing out on anything.

Dr Zibbs said...

I actually liked Hello Larry.

However in retrospect it probably was just my 8th grade crush on Kim Richards that explains why I felt so excited when that theme song would start.

Hello Larrryyyy!!!
