"Don’t say you hate your fam-" No.
"Omg you should love your fami-" No.
"Be grateful they’re your famil-" No.
If you have been bullied, hit, teased, put down, hurt, lied to, or hated by your own family; you don’t need to justify how you feel. You don’t need to explain yourself. You are allowed to hate a family member or dislike a family member if they’ve given you a reason to.
This is so fucking important.
Are you fucking kidding me with this shit.
It’s almost, but not quite, too late for me to have all of their children.
11 INTROS TO TACKY 80s SCI-FI/FANTASY TV
Would be more accurate to say “tacky 1980s sci-fi cop shows” in most of the cases. I didn’t watch any of these as a kid, but I do remember the existance of a few of them (and knew someone who was still gaga over Manimal in 2002). What’s funny is in watching these intro credits (beside the New Wave skin flick themesongs), you will recognise a few people whose careers somehow survived these speedbumps — the likes of Courtney Cox, Lou Gossett Jr., Robert Hayes, Max Wright (who wound up with a different “misfit of science”, ALF), and the voiceover for The Highwayman is indeed Robert Conrad. And yes, you did just see Automan blatently rip off TRON.
And I have to be honest: the premise of Outlaws — five cowboys get hit by lightning and somehow get transported through time so start their own detective agency — reminds me of the Phil Hartman SNL sketches “Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer” colliding with every other damned private eye show that was produced in the 80s (Simon & Simon, Magnum PI, Remington Steele, Moonlighting, ad infinitum…).
I can’t believe I watched this whole thing. I can’t believe I watched some of these shows.
(Sure liked Misfits of Science and Courteneneneny, though.)
((And Julia Duffy, though I liked her as the princess in Newhart best))
In all my life, I have never met anyone else who remembered that Phoenix show.
Dudes who run hot and cold and make you question your value for even a second are not worth your time for $1000, Alex.
Another reason I’m partial to fall is that fall colors look best on my skin tone and all the nail polish/makeup collections that are out right now...
