"Byrds Of Paradise" #9
1 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, I was particularly excited about this show, when it premiered back on March 3, 1993. ( My Birthday ) I have been a long time fan of Arlo Guthrie, and I thought, Jeeze, what a great B-day present. A T.V. show, with Arlo Guthrie as one of the stars. Not only a fan of Guthrie's music, but I love his acting career as well... No matter how small, a library!!! (e.p. Woodstock, Alice's Rest., guest appearances on shows, from Seseame st. to the Old John Cash TV show.. His cameo appearances, are too many to mention... LOVED HIM in the movie, 'Roadside Prophets"... His acting in that movie, was GREAT.... Unlike certain scenes from Legendary Director's Arthur Penn.. Alices. ) The show was also, easy on the eyes, as a very young Jennifer Love Hewitt, was another great addition to the show.... I never really cared for actor Timothy Busfield, until I watched Byrds... Actor Seth Green, has shown a long track record of being a successful actor...

I guess to sum it up, is Americans don't want wholesome... The days of the Waltons are OVER!!! ( this was a favorite show of mine) I didn't learn till yrs. later, Will Geer was a longtime friend of Arlo's Dad, Woody.... Not that it would make any difference. The Waltons was a great show!!!! Yet, unless people can turn in every week, and witness, blood and guts (CSI, and all the CSI wannabees ) murder, rape, and prison life ( too many TV shows to mention ) or trashy over 40 wanna look 25, and cheating on they're spouses, they aren't gonna tune in... I'm speaking for the majority..

Myself, I love the minority here... NO, I don't want to watch a modern day 'Osmonds' or 'Partride Family'.... But it would be great, to watch a good drama, with no violence, now vulgarity, nudity, and heavy drug usage..... Recreational drug use is acceptable... But I don't make ratings, or have any influence on what people WANT to watch on TV..
