    Welcome Back, Kotter

    Welcome Back, Kotter

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1979)
    Gabe Kotter, formerly a Sweathog, returns to James Buchanan High as a teacher and is assigned the remedial class to which he once belonged. Mr. Kotter is an involved and caring teacher, which one would have to be in dealing with a certain four students in his class, who end up in trouble on a regular basis -- lady's man Vinnie Barbarino, the always cool Freddie "Boom-Boom" Washington, the tough Juan (Luis Pedro Phillipo de Huevos) Epstein, and the sheepish Arnold Dingfelder Horshack. Welcome Back, Kotter was based on Gabe Kaplan's own high school experiences with redmedial education and a teacher who cared dearly for her students. Changes on the show. Gabe Kaplan left the series in the third season. He hadn't expected the show to run as long as it had. Kotter was made Vice-Principal, and thus was seen considerably less. John Travolta, of course, found his own place as a celebrity, leaving the show around the same time Gabe Kaplan did (returning every so often as a "special guest star"). The replacement for Barbarino was Beau, who didn't help things much. By now the show had essentially lost its two biggest stars. Theme song. "Welcome Back" by John Sebastian: opening credits Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out. Welcome back to that same old place that you laughed about. Well, the names have all changed since you hung around. But those dreams have remained and they've turned around. Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (who'd have thought they'd lead ya) Back here where we need ya (back here where we need ya)? Yeah, we tease him a lot 'cause we've got him on the spot, welcome back. Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. end credits The second verse of the full song plays partially over the end credits. It goes as thus: Welcome back, we always could spot a friend. Welcome back, and I smile when I think how you must have been. And I know what a scene you were learnin' in. Was there something that made you come back again? And what could ever lead ya (what could ever lead ya) Back here where we need ya (back here where we need ya)? Yeah, we tease him a lot 'cause we've got him on the spot, welcome back. Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. Catchphrases. Welcome Back, Kotter was a breeding ground for memorable catch phrases. If you have one that's been overlooked, feel free to contact the editor. Gabe Kotter: "Hey, Julie, wanna hear a joke?" (or similar dialogue) Vinnie Barbarino: "What? Where?" "I'm so confused!" "Ooookay, fine." "I said a ba-ba-ba-ba-Barbarino..." Freddie "Boom-Boom" Washington: "Hi there." "I don't happen to have it...handy." Juan Epstein: "Signed, Epstein's mother." Arnold Horshack: "Ooh! Ooh, ooh!" "Hello. How are ya? I'm Arnold Horshack." "Very impressive, Mr. Kotter!" "Be brave, little soldier." (or "buckaroo") ...and a very distinctive laugh. DVD? Welcome Back, Kotter has yet to be released properly on either video or dvd.

    NBC (ended 1988)
    "When people told themselves their past with stories, explained their present with stories, foretold the future with stories, the best place by the fire was kept for the storyteller." The Storyteller, shown in 1988, starred John Hurt as the Storyteller and with the help of Jim Henson's Workshop of muppets, actors, voices and costumes as well as visual effects, brought a new dimension to television. Nine stories were shown in this series, which was followed a few years later by Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Greek Myths. This series was to feature some of Britain's finest actors of the time and some who would propel themselves into the international limelight within the next few years. Sean Bean, Jane Horrocks, Brenda Blethyn, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Joely Richardson, Bob Peck, Alison Doody, Gabrielle Anwar, Jonathan Pryce and Miranda Richardson all appeared during the show's short run. The real stars of each episode, however, are The Storyteller and his dog, voiced by Brian Henson. Please note that the synopses in the episode list and the episode guide detail most or all of the story for that episode and will spoil the shows if you are planning on watching.moreless

    Grad Slam, hosted by funny man Dennis Miller and Amanda Byram featured sixteen of the biggest winners in United States game show history from the past two decades. Each vying for the $100,000 grand prize and the title "The best of the best." The show featured one on one rapid-fire matches where the contestants face difficult trivia questions in four rounds: General Knowledge, Numbers and Logic, Words and Letters, and a final match where questions from the previous three categories were asked. A fifth round, Pop Culture, was added for the final match. In each round, the contestants were given one minute on their clocks, and the first contestant would then be asked a question by the off-camera "Questioner," and his time would begin counting down. If a contestant answered correctly, his clock would then stop, and his opponent's clock would start. When the active contestant answered incorrectly or passed on his question, his clock would continue until he answered a question correctly. As soon as one of the contestant's clocks expired, the round would end. At the end of each round the time that was left on the winning contestant's clock was added to the one minute they had for the fourth round. The contestant who won the final round won the match.moreless

    Stark Raving Mad

    Follow
    NBC (ended 2000)
    Tony Award nominee Tony Shalhoub and Neil Patrick Harris return to series television in this comedy series from Emmy Award winner Steven Levitan. Harris stars as Henry McNeely, a young, book editor who is thrust into the dark and chaotic world of best-selling horror writer Ian Stark. Providing distractions as Henry tries to keep Stark on track, are Stark's dazed writing assistant Jake Donavan, sassy bartender/college student Maddie Keller and Stark's overly affectionate dog, Edgar. (NBC press release)

    Yet another could've-been hit blundered by the collaborative incompetence of former entertainment president Garth Ancier and former (notice a pattern?) West Coast president Scott Sassa, Stark Raving Mad received a full season pickup. And that's where the network's support began and ended. Stark never clicked with the audience watching the show it followed on the schedule, Frasier, rendering it a time slot hit -- and not much of one at that. Though common sense would have suggested that's because their brand of humor was incompatible... well, it was on NBC, after all. After the original 13 episodes were broadcast by January, 2000, (at which time Regis Philbin stepped in and sent the show into a deep Nielsen gorge), the series bounced off and on -- mostly off -- the schedule, and nearly half of the back nine that the network ordered in November, 1999 were never broadcast at all. Although NBC executives believe that sitcoms that don't work on Thursday won't work anywhere, your editor doesn't. He does, though, wonder what might have been had Stark Raving Mad aired on Tuesday after Just Shoot Me -- which it was perfectly compatible with. Guess we'll never know. Besides, three years later, and Ancier's/Sassa's even more incompetent replacement, Jeff Zucker, was playing the same hide-and-seek games with JSM that they were with SRM.

    "Batty, bonkers, crazy, loopy, loony, hazy Chaotic, neurotic, peculiar and amazing Demented, deranged, particularly strange Frantic, ranting, shaky, flaky, making me insane." -- theme song

    Stark Raving Mad is produced by Steven Levitan Productions, in association with 20th Century Fox Television

    Silverwing

    Follow
    TELETOON (ended 2003)
    Long before the first migration, there raged a Great Battle Between the Birds and the Beasts. This was fought to establish the balance of nature and the territorial limits of every species. The bats, being neither birds nor beasts, would not choose sides in the conflict. For this, a law was passed that forever condemned the bats to darkness...One young bat, Shade Silverwing, dared to break the law. Derived from Kenneth Oppel's best-selling novel of the same name, this animated series goes beyond the novel, exploring the characters' inter-relationships and inventing new adventures. Regarding Contributions: I welcome any notes, quotes, goofs or cultural reference submissions to this guide, but the time it takes for them to be posted will vary. Quotes will be verified first, and all entries will be subjected to approval. All entries may be edited for grammar content. Also, please keep in mind that submissions, particularly notes and goofs, should not contain any opinions. They must be factual and to the point, otherwise they will be rejected for the guide. Please use the forum for discussing the show and expressing your opinions on characters and episodes. Thanks! The Cast of Silverwing: Shade: A young Silverwing bat who was teased by his friends for being the runt of the colony. When he dared to break the law of gazing on the sun, his colony lost its beloved roost at Tree Haven. Only after being separated from his colony does Shade discover the many skills and abilities that make him an extraordinary, heroic bat. Marina: A young Brightwing bat that lived alone on an island until fate intervened and brought Shade to her. She was cast out of her colony because they felt the silver band the humans gave her would bring bad luck. Now Shade's closest friend and migration companion, she is a constant source of moral support and good advice. Goth: A huge and vicious cannibal bat from the South American jungle that was brought north for scientific study. After escaping the lab, he used his skills of deception to trick Shade into describing the Silverwing colony. Now anxious to sit down to a feast of Silverwing before flying back home, he is a constant threat to Shade and Marina's safety. Throbb: Goth's portly brother in-law is not as fast or strong as he is, but is still a vicious adversary with the same craving for bat meat. He and Goth were brought north together and agree to work together to get back home. What Throbb doesn't know is that Goth plans to eat him if they don't find the Silverwing colony. Frieda: The banded chief elder of the female Silverwings is a kind and gentle leader with an endless supply of wisdom for bats young and old. Trusted and respected by the colony, her loyalty was brought to debate after she refused to give Shade to the owls and caused Tree Haven to be destroyed. Still, she sees potential in Shade that no one else can see. Bathsheba: A bitter member of the Silverwing elders with too much to say. She has been jealous of Frieda her entire life and cannot agree with any decision she makes. Bathsheba is determined to become a better leader than Frieda and will do anything to tarnish the leader's reputation, even if it means destruction of the entire Silverwing colony. Ariel: Shade's loving mother lost her mate, Cassiel, just before Shade was born and was left to raise the young Silverwing herself. She knows Shade wants to find his father, but never told him he was alive, fearing Shade would leave to find him. Ariel believes in rules and discipline, but she knows the law is wrong and cannot blame Shade for opposing it. Chinook: The most promising hunter and flyer in Shade's generation, Chinook is boastful and proud of his skills. Knowing the hype surrounding him, he doesn't feel out of place flying alongside the elders or participating in colony politics. He might act like a bully sometimes, but he is noble-hearted and considers Shade both his friend and rival. Mercury: The only adult male Silverwing that stays with the females, he serves as a messenger, scout and guardian for the female elders. He always flies near the front of the colony to keep an eye out for danger. Disciplined and quick to act, Mercury is also one of Frieda's most loyal supporters during times of crisis. Brutus: The vengeful, war-mongering supreme commander of the owls. Brutus ordered the attack on Tree Haven after Frieda refused to give up Shade. Obsessed with war and hunting fugitives, he is always certain about his decisions and does not like to be advised by anyone. Not even his son, whom he is ashamed of for not sharing his views on the law. Orestes: Brutus' timid, vegetarian son is disregarded by his own species because he believes the answers to conflicts lie in diplomacy, not war. After Shade and Marina rescue him from a human trap, Orestes decides that the only way to prove his point is to help clear Shade's name. He may be an owl, but he is also Shade and Marina's friend and trusted ally. Ursa: Being the only Kermode bear around, Brutus felt Ursa would be the ideal neutral creature to serve as leader of the beasts. She didn't want the position, as Ursa had no interest in helping anyone, but was later convinced by Shade to rally most of the beasts and boycott the war. Now an ally of the bats, Ursa's position of authority is invaluable. Luger: The leader of the wolves is a sinister and conspiring character who wished to rule all beasts. When he was not selected as leader, he and his wolves began killing more than their fair share of prey, causing many animals to seek protection from Ursa. Luger cares not for Brutus' war and even plots to help Goth and Throbb fulfill their dastardly deeds. Atlas: Brutus' second-in-command is an owl of few words, but shares similar views on the enforcement and execution of the law. Although not as fast or strong as his boss, Atlas is still a fearsome warrior who should not be taken lightly, which he proves in a wing-to-wing battle with Throbb. Todd: A young and somewhat plump Silverwing bat that used to hang out with Shade and Chinook. A voice of reason, Todd tried to convince Shade not to see the sun, but Shade ignored his advice. Todd also blamed Chinook for losing Tree Haven and reminds him coldly about the consequences of showing off. Breeze: A young female Silverwing and a friend of Shade, Chinook and Todd. Like Todd, she had tried to warn Shade and Chinook about the sun and the owls, but her pleas were to no avail. Her actions suggest that she might like Chinook, but after the sun-gazing incident, Breeze's mother refused to let her hang out with her friends anymore. Zephyr: A wise and blind Albino bat who lives in the spire of a cathedral, Zephyr serves as "bat traffic controller" and makes sure that all bat colonies are migrating safely. He lends his extensive knowledge to Shade and Marina by teaching them star navigation, herbal remedies and echoprojection, all of which prove to be effective against Goth and Throbb. Remus: The paranoid, arrogant and insane side of a duo of rat kings, Remus rules with an iron claw and will jail any of his followers if he feels the least bit threatened. The truth is, as the younger brother of Romulus, he is not meant to be a king at all. Remus thinks his destiny is to rule all beasts, and will do absolutely anything to achieve his goal. Romulus: The rightful king of the rats is stuck sharing the job with his brother Remus, who convinced him that the wing-like skin under his arms made him a freak that cannot rule alone. Cautious and loyal to his kingdom, Romulus soon learns from Shade that one must stand up for one's rights when one is the true ruler. Scirocco: The charismatic leader of a colony of banded bats that dwell in a cabin on a snowy mountain. He won the respect of his followers by promising them that their bands will, one day, allow them to transform into humans and reclaim the day. However, his promises are lies boosted with echoprojections that force Marina to make a tough choice. Penelope: A young Brightwing bat from Marina's colony that was banished because of her band, although Marina heard the elders say she died from it. Penelope was misled by Scirocco's fake promises and became one of his most prominent followers, but realizes where her loyalty should be when she learns Scirocco's secret from Shade. Hector: Chinook's father and one of the male Silverwing elders, Hector is fast, strong and a good leader. He and the other male Silverwings had to leave their own roost early because of an owl attack, but were reunited with the females at Hibernaculum. Hector is also an old friend of Shade's father and reveals the truth to the young bat that Cassiel is still alive.moreless

    Follow
    VH1
    "Behind The Music" chronicles the personal lives of many of the most popular musical acts of the rock era, and occasionally strays into related subjects, such as Woodstock, Hair and radio pioneer Alan Freed, as well as 'year' episodes, which tell the events and issues of certain years through the music of the time. The series was born following the success of a VH1 documentary about heroin abuse. The producers strictly follow a policy of having complete cooperation from their subjects, even when delving into embarrassing issues, which prevents the show from falling into the pitfall of tabloid sleaze. They hunt down possible interviewees, sometimes using detectives, and ask direct, probing questions, which prompt revealing, and brutally honest (we hope) responses. Nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Non-Fiction Series for four consecutive years, BTM has established a rigid formula. We explore humble beginnings, meteoric rises, major setbacks, personal struggles, crippling vices, devasting falls, and climaxes that include revivals, deaths, and career changes. Unfortunately (for us), success has crept in. As BTM became VH1's top-rated show, it also has become a vehicle for commercialism. In 2000, the market was flooded with BTM books, CD's, and videos, and the recording industry started to realise the direct influence the show has on music sales. Vanilla Ice reportedly sold four times more albums after his episode aired, and many back catalogue sales have increased. So the later episodes have veered away from the 'classic' artists, and feature trendy, marketable newer acts. Hence, there sometimes is precious little drama to the artists' stories, and the series has turned rather uneven. Still, there is an occasional worthy tale, though VH1 produces only three or four new episodes per season these days. It's sister show, "VH1's Storytellers", has also been revived .moreless

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven

    The WB (ended 1999)
    Exactly one year after his death, rock musician, Eric Draven, returns to earth in a symbolic and literal leap from the bridge that joins the Land of the Dead and the land of the living. Possessing the mystic powers of The Crow, he is neither living nor dead, searching for a way to right what has been wronged.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven continues the legacy of Eric Draven and expands on the mythology of the successful feature film franchise. Joined as soulmates, Draven and his girlfriend Shelly were inseparable — until they were brutally and senselessly murdered.

    Now, their souls cannot rest. Their romance endures through time and death, creating an incredible longing between the young lovers. Draven seeks redemption by helping others, fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves. Through each act of justice, he is taken one step closer to his own salvation.

    A foot soldier on the side of good, at Draven's core is a powerful force that transforms him into The Crow — his alter ego.

    Draven's return to Earth arouses both suspicion and curiosity from Daryl Albrecht, the police lieutenant who has never given up his crusade to solve the vicious crime that cost Eric and Shelly their lives.

    Eric also has other earthly allies. He and Shelly remain connected to Sarah, a 13-year-old kid who is streetwise beyond her years and who regarded the dead lovers as family. While her rebellious nature can be her worst enemy, she is the grounded voice of reality for Eric.

    Even a dead man needs to get a life. Although Eric Draven has been changed forever, he must exist, at least for now, in the world of the living.

    During the opening theme of the show, the voice-overs of Eric and Shelly say:

    SHELLY: People once believed that when someone dies, a Crow carries their soul to the Land of the Dead

    DRAVEN: But sometimes something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest

    SHELLY: Then sometimes, just sometimes, the Crow can bring the soul back to put things right

    DRAVEN: Things can never be right, my soul will never rest, until we are together again.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.moreless

    Fawlty Towers

    Follow
    BBC Two (ended 1979)
    The genesis of Fawlty Towers came when John Cleese and the rest of the Pythons went filming in the Southwest of England in May 1971. They were scheduled to spend two weeks at the Gleneagles in Torquay, but cut their stay to one night. It all had to do with the "wonderfully rude" hotel manager, the late Donald Sinclair. Sinclair hated all the guests who had the shortsightedness to stay in the Gleneagles. Worse, Sinclair was only 5'4" and was married to a large, domineering wife. Cleese turned Sinclair into a character for a Doctor in the House script for the BBC in 1973. This was just after Cleese had finished his TV chores on Monty Python's Flying Circus. Cleese wanted to strike out with his now-separated wife, Connie Booth, so the BBC gave both the offer to do a series. It didn't take long at all for Cleese and Booth to make the series out of that Torquay hotel, which they named Fawlty Towers. Cleese cast himself as manager Basil Fawlty, who felt that the main nuisances in a hotel were the guests. Wife Sybil Fawlty was Basil's equal and opposite, the competent co-owner who could lash out at Basil and win on the first stroke. ("We reversed the sizes [of manager and wife]," said the 6'4" Cleese.) Rounding out the regular staff at Fawlty Towers were Andrew Sachs as Manuel, the dumb waiter from Barcelona who could not make sense of Basil's commands (¿Qué?), and Connie Booth as Polly, whose calmness was sorely tested in each of Basil's schemes and cover-ups. While most sitcom writers spend two weeks turning out an episode, John Cleese and Connie Booth spent six weeks writing each episode of Fawlty Towers. Cleese said each program started with two or three plot threads, which start parallel, but begin to intertwine. The best shows, of course, are those in which the plot threads touch at the end. The production team spent nearly an hour editing each minute of every program, spending up to 25 hours on each show. With such intense work put into each episode, Fawlty Towers drew raves around the world, exceeding the success of Monty Python's Flying Circus in some countries. But Cleese limited the run of Fawlty Towers to approximately twelve shows. He did not want to diminish the impact Fawlty Towers has had. And there has been plenty of impact. America tried three times to regenerate the show, none of which worked. The best U.S. homage to the show may be a hotel called "Fawlty Towers" in Cocoa Beach, Florida (near Ron Jon's Surf Shop). Its owners have adopted the pseudonyms Basil and Sybil. The show won 3 BAFTA Awards and one Broadcasting Press Guild Award. Despite being very short - lived and not airing too often, Fawlty Towers is recognised as one of the greatest British TV shows of all time. It was ranked #5 in the British Comedy Guide's list of Top 50 British Sitcoms. Fawlty Towers was voted #1 In the British Film Instuite TV 100. Other awards the show has won are; 'The Royal Television Society Programme Awards'for outstanding creative achievements which went to John Cleese in May 1976, In April 1982, the two episodes of Fawlty Towers that were used as training films won a Queens Award for Export Acheivement, In 2001 the new Fawlty Towers DVD set won the 'Quality Street DVD award' for being the best comedy on DVD, Basil Fawlty was recognised as the most Monstrous Boss on British TV in May 2003 by UK Satellite Channel UK Gold, just beating David Brent from The Office. Fawlty Towers has aired in over 60 countries in places like Tonga, China, Pakistan, Latvia, Malta and Denmark.moreless

    Standup comedian Rodney Carrington stars as Rodney Hamilton, a down-to-earth guy who, with his own heartland intelligence, speaks the truth.

    In the middle of real, everyday America, Rodney's life revolves around two things. His family - wife Trina and their two boys, Jack and Bo and his horrible job at a fiberglass plant but he manages to makes time for his longtime friend, Barry, and his man-hungry sister-in-law, Charlie, who often visits the Hamilton house.

    There's never time for life to get dull for Rodney. He's not afraid to walk into a department store naked on a dare. Not afraid to take credit for flowers someone else sent his wife. Not afraid to get between his fighting boys. Not afraid to tell his wife he's ready to make standup comedy his career, okay, he's a little afraid of that. One matter they do agree on is the fact that, although they may not have much in the way of material things, they are rich in the love of their family and friends.

    In the meantime, aside from raising a healthy, happy family with the only woman he's ever loved, Rodney is going to figure out how to find happiness pursuing his dream while being the best husband and dad he knows how to be.
