This has got me thinking about writing a TL...
Go for it!
The Jerry Springer Show: A liberal leaning talk show hosted by the former mayor of Cincinnati Jerry Springer known for a very vocal Democrat during the show run Springer was loved by all Americans for his fun loving attitude and his tendency to call people out whenever he felt they were in the wrong these being the highlights of the show with the audience often shouting Springer name after it the show is most famous though for being the place Al Franken announced he was running for senate and Sean Penn announced he was running for a house seat.
Lasted on Syndication from 1991-1995 then moved MSNBC From 1995-2015 when Springer left the network to do Crossfire on CNN with Governor Jesse Ventura
This show is also noted as the place a former
night-club comedian named Jon Stewart got
his first real national exposure.
It actually was. Although it wasnt celebrities and it was a race to the statue of liberty. It was called Lost, or Lost no not that one post jj Abrams series.
Thanks for the info! Do you remember when this show aired?
2001 i believe. It didnt last long.
Why Christina Applegate ?
Mostly a whim. Darrin McGavin's version of Karl Kolchak was more dogged than brave or bright. With Kolchak the Destroyer being a tongue in cheek story, you need an comic actor who plays the role fairly straight up. Christina Applegate can portray intelligent or thick-as-a-brick characters. The alternate choice might have been Alicia Silverstone, for similar reasons.
GEOSTORM- An upcoming 2017 documentary on the attempts by the Greater German Empire under Fuhrer Adolf Eichmann in the 1970s to develop a program that can manipulate weather patterns.
Re CAPTAIN AMERICA: it starred Rock Hudson as the dashing Captain Rogers, Lee
Majors as his stolid, dependable first officer,
& Jack Lord as the gruff, don't-mess-with-me
Commander of the Northern navy.
A nail biting TV detective series dramatising the life of alcoholic dependent detective, Jack Gardiner and his lifelong struggle against the underbelly of a corrupt city and police force. Series first aired in 1976 and subsequently a Hollywood Movie was made in 1981 with James Coburn reprising his small screen role. The film was panned by critics and cinema goers alike leaving Coburn disenfranchised from mainstream cinema and TV. Although Coburn had a small cameo role playing the aforementioned detective in a Muppets Christmas Carol in 1994.
Starring Robert Conrad as Gilligan, Telley
Savalas as "The Professor" &- in a major
departure for a war TV series- Angie Dickinson as Mary Ann, who of course
served the guys coffee & donuts but
could also fire a gun as well as any man!
(Being this was a TV show, there was never
the slightest hint that she was, er, doing
anything else with all those guys....) Also
featuring, in a recurring guest-star role,
Edward Asner as Admiral William F. "Bull"
I take it this butterflies away the Reagan
Dynamite cast & a great idea! The only
problem involves Spencer Tracy, who IOTL
died in 1967. Perhaps Henry Fonda could
Might be just a little too risqué, even for
HBO. I know- how about Farrah Fawcett
starring as a super-model who also, on the
sly, fights crime. Her #1 foe is the feared
(& ruthless)local head of the syndicate,
played by James Gandolfini.
An HBO production dramatising the 536-538 campaigns of Roman general Flavius Belisarius as he fights against the Ostrogoths and his political rivals at the court of the Emperor Justinian, to return the city of Rome to the Roman Empire and then defend it from counter-attacks. Eventually ends with Belisarius securing the city of Ravenna and leaving Rome secure as he returns to Constantinople and his ever-suspicious master.
A second season would have followed Belisarius returning to Rome after five years, seeing all his gains squandered while he was defending the Empire in the east. Due to the costs, the season was never made.
Starring Chris Helmsworth as General Belisarius & Robert Redford as Justinan, with Christopher Pine
guest- starring as Belisarius' nephew who has some plans of his own...
Yet this show is notable in television history for two reasons. First, it featured a previously unknown
actress named Bea Arthur, thus giving her her first big break. Second, Lear cast as one of the leads
Tippi Hedren, whose movie career had by then completely flamed out. The exposure she got on
HOUSEWIVES allowed Ms. Hedren to launch a whole new career on TV.
