Read my lips: *This show sucked!*
16 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you can't say anything nice....

Well, okay, maybe two minor observations (and I hope it will be more than 10 lines this time):

(1) The only good part of this program was two title cards following the closing credits, the first one showing the copyright notice at the top of the screen along with that "This program is protected under copyright laws of the United States...." warning at the bottom and a miniature MCA logo sandwiched in between, cutting to a static MCA/Universal Television logo title card 4 seconds later while that classic Universal Television/Revue Productions music jingle - written by Electronic Pop music pioneer Esquivel along with Stanley Wilson - was heard during all that; the MCA/Universal title card "tumbled off" the screen once the music ended (this was the same Universal Television music jingle heard after the closing credits of "The Munsters," but a rare, longer version was used for this program); and

(2) Because of astronomical music royalties, this sorry time-waster should hopefully *never* see a DVD release.

Enough said!
