Which TV cop of the 70's said:
"You can't corrupt it. And you know why? Because to corrupt it, you've got to show how corrupt you really are."
a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Steve McGarret e) Barney Miller f) Hutch g) Starsky
OK, CCJoe, I'll give you credit for a win on my trivia. The character in question was Bart and I thought the line to be of some irony for our lives.
As for TV, it is pretty sad, for sure. Thank God for the Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park and Charlie Brown. Wait a minute, I think I see a connection here, hummmm...
Also, don't forget to watch The Daily Show and Colbert Report (although they're all repeats this week). Jon Stewart has had several world leaders (both current and past) on the show recently, not the least of which was the President of Bolivia, a former tenant farmer that reformed several major elements of government in six months, including forcing the major natural gas company to re-negotiate a contract that was very unfair to the people of Bolivia while giving what amounted to bribes to top government officials. Not included in that interview (unfortunately) was the fact that The Bush administration tried to paint the newly elected leader (at the time) as a terrorist sponsor. Perhaps reform should travel north? Both are great shows, not to be missed.

this is so frigging true, it is sad.
I got DVDs for Hawaii 5 -0, Kojack, Columbo, The Jeffersons, Sanford and Son, Good Times, and so on... etc etc etc Barney Miller, too; just to get me by...
what is being produced in La La land these days is a fucking travesty.
When Law and Order SVU or Criminal Intent or The Dallas Cowboys are not on the tube I'll break out the DVD's. Unless the Steelhead are runnin, that case I be fishin.
fuck, I forgot this question was in the TV thread, and I was racking my brain trying to think of the movie which I think was called Carney...
I forgot the character's name, but someone in Natural Born Killers?
nope, on a Simpsons episode for sure... a play with the Stone movie line in Natural Born Killers; which was probably the best film he directed...
I forgot who said it though on the Simpsons.
one of my old high school buds ended up being a staff writer on the Simpsons for a while, but he was not a deadhead; so no cool 'hidden' references in any of the stuff he wrote.
