My dad never missed this when it hit TV Land. I was very neutral on it. Funny enough, but I chalk it up to so far before my time I will never totally be into it.

I 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐝 this show - had to see it every week


Two not particularly well-known facts about the show (although the second one, I am not entirely sure is true).

First, the reason Bob Denver was replaced early in the run was, he was drafted - but it turned out that he had broken his neck once, so he was 4-F and returned to the show.

Second, reportedly, had the show gone on for another season, Dobie's mother was going to get pregnant and give birth, with all of the sibling rivalry "hijinks" that supposedly ensues as a result.

It also featured a very young
Warren Beatty as a regular.

Remember when the "Vegas shutting down again rumor" thread was actually about whether Vegas would shut down again? Remember? Remember that? Now it's a couple dozen pages about 18 yos in a row. Alan mentions Virgin casino and Casino Royale having trouble reopening and it gets buried. That is what the thread is about people, not tracking 2 tables. Wizard, can you split that crap off into a separate thread so I can block it? Thanks ahead of time!

I remember the breakfast buffets hitting in the 1980s. On vacations we all ordered one with the understanding there would be no stopping for lunch. Shoney's was about the best I ever saw. I stopped at a local one on my 50th birthday solely to break the bacon into a "50" like Walter White but I was happier as I was not married to Skylar.

They are now pricier but who does not like treating themselves to one a couple or three times a year.

Skyler White, shudder. Being married
to her would be like a prison sentence.

One of the few sophisticated comedies
on TV at that time. Most comedies,
like Lucy, Beaver, Mayberry, and later
ones like Hillbillies, Green Acres,
Munsters, on and on, were childish
and ridiculous by comparison.



Not to mention Gilligan, Mr. Ed, Bewitched, Jeannie, McHale's Navy, My Mother the Car, etc.

Most TV was terrible back in the 60s.. The shows that stood out (that I remember) were Star Trek, Twilight Zone, The Avengers (Diana Rigg and Patrick McNee) and Perry Mason. And there's lots to criticize in those shows as well.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

I don't know when the Big Boy deal was around, but that sounds pretty good. I'm still blown away that Excalibur's Roundtable buffets used to be $3.99 in the early 90s. It included crabs and prime rib. If you put inflation to factor, $3.99 in 1991 is equivalent to $7.63 in 2020 with inflation. Pre-covid, it was nearly impossible to find a buffet under $20 on the strip.
