I live in so-cal and my boyfriend's uncle was in a high-speed police chase a few yrs ago. Total
drama including using his 3 mo. old baby as a human shield (kid was fine btw). Totally missed it
because of school. But luckily it was tivoed :)

I really miss watching ALF. That show was awesome. Nick Arcade is great too on the GAS channel.

I was a big fan of Hill St. Blues and there was an episode where the promo made it look like Furillo
had dropped a gun off a bridge to cover up a crime by a family member. I was living in Oak Ridge,
TN at the time and the show was pre-empted by a Dolly Parton Special. It was the last season and
the episode apparenly never re-ran. Waiting for it to show up on NetFlix...

That one time in the early '90's when some guy blew his head apart with a shotgun on some Southern
California freeway in the middle of the day on live television. I was still a kid at the time, and
it seemed as though everyone at school had seen it except me. To this day, I still haven't seen it.

The final episode of M.A.S.H. I was a huge fan of the show and M.A.S.H was THE show of its day. a 2
hour special was planned for the shows finally but my parents decided to visit my aunt that day and
i missed it. At school the next day everyone was talking about it. To this day i have only seen
parts of it.

I would have liked to seen the Max Headroom show or shows back in the mid-80's. I don't even
remember if it came on more than once.
I remember being on a church camping trip the night they outted who shot JR on Dallas. I wasn't a
fan but most of the folks with me were.

On Friday Night (April 20th) I missed the Sabres vs. Islanders game because I was babysitting and
the kids started crying when I changed the channel to the game (yeah, I have to work on them). The
Sabres won and moved them onto the next round and Miller made an amazing save. And I missed it.
P.S. I'm a Sabres fan ;)

It was an after-school special about a kid who was struggling with a bully (this would have been
about 1974). There was a chart in the hallway of the school showing the different stages of human
evolution (you know the one - every humanoid facing to the side showing the transition from apes to
human). Over the picture of the neanderthal this kid had written the bully's name as a joke. The
bully happened to be standing nearby and saw this, and then ......... I had to go to violin
practice. My friends who had been watching it with me told me that the bully beat up the kid and
there was a real bloodbath, but I know this is not true. If anyone knows how this really turned
out, let me know!

1) The Rugrats Mothers' Day episode where Chuckie dreams about his mom. My dad made me turn off the
TV and do something "productive" and I never got a chance to see it. Even now, a good 12 years
later, I can't find the epsiode to download anywhere, so I guess I'll never see it.
2) The 1994 Oscars. I had done something bad and my parents grounded me from the TV for a month.
When you're 8 you don't really have shows that you follow, so missing TV isn't really that big of a
deal, but my mom was really rubbing it in from the next room, saying how great they were and how
they were the best Oscars ever. Probably because she's a bitch.

The first music video ever shown on MTV. Now that I think of it, the LAST one too. Because there
hasn't been music on that channel in a LOOOOONG time.

Commercials these days suck. They're annoying. They didn't used to be like this! They used to be
heartwarming and I feel very nostalgic when I pop in a video tape of something recorded in the late
'80s or early '90s. Part of the problem these days is that a lot of people are advertising products
they can't very well show on TV (like car insurance), so instead they do fripping annoying caveman
ads. What the hell do cavemen have to do with car insurance? NOTHING! And that's why ads these
days bug me.

None of these drive-thru menus look familiar. I don't eat fast food. It took me 5 time to refesh
the page until I could identify one, which happened to be a Dairy Queen. Now I forgot what I
wanted to say.
