The John Larroquette Show

The John Larroquette Show logoA fascinating case study in how to destroy a successful situation comedy. In its first season The John Larroquette Show was a daring dark comedy and a hit. Set in a St. Louis long distance bus terminal, with a recovering alcoholic protagonist adrift in a sea of losers, hookers, and street people, black and white, gay and straight, this was unlike anything seen in a sitcom since Hot'l Baltimore a generation before, a comedy that addressed issues on the dark side of the American dream: race, class, gender, abuse of authority, substance addiction, etc. In the second and third season NBC carefully removed each and every element that had made the show interesting, making nonsense of a premise and bland stereotypes of its hard-edged/bizarre characters, then cancelled the show abruptly once every...

The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams

The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams logoThis was a show that was different from all others from its time. It is about a man that goes into the wilderness and befriends a grizzly bear cub which he named Ben. Together they meet other people and different kinds of wild life. For those 25-40 will remember this show well while they were growing up in the 1970's early 1980's. There was no other show like it then and there will never be another show like it in the future. The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams Theme Song Deep inside the forest is a door into another land, Here is our life and home, We are staying, here forever in the beauty of this place all alone, We keep on hoping... Maybe, there's a world where we won't have to run, and Maybe, there's a time we'll call our own, Living free in harmony and majesty, Take me home, Take...
