Storyline

A long-running talk show with a host of the same name. This show was one of the first challengers to Phil Donahue's undisputed rule over the daytime talk world. Raphael's subjects were often more sensational, and were often aimed more at titilation, rather than information. As time went on and shock TV became more popular, Raphael's show thrived while Donahue's faded. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Pretty good talk show
1 August 2007 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I really miss this talk show. First off, I must say that it was a pretty good talk show. Also, I haven't seen every episode. However, if you ask me, it was still a good show. I know some of the theme song by heart, too. Even so, it was fun to see people get busted. In addition, I really enjoyed watching wild teenagers get reformed by Sergeant Darrell Julu of the United States Army. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever, even though I haven't seen every episode. Now, in conclusion, if some network ever brings it back, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
