Default What do you all think of Billy Gray's hate for the show?

He makes me laugh when I listen to him. He sounds like Bud that didn't learn a thing

It's typical of some child stars. Gary Coleman, Susan Dey, and Kim Fields come to mind as child actors who shunned their former shows to one degree or another.

It must be difficult for a child to be an actor. The profession would be a full-time job for an adult actor, but a child must also go to school, learn lines, rehearse, sit in on staff meetings, and who knows what.

Is it the show itself, or his experience working on it?

He has panned the show itself. He needs to realize that its assumptions were a reflection of its times.

You could sit there and pick apart all older shows, even Lucy.

He would like work even at his age so if he says all the right things maybe someone will hire him. That's Bud without his Dad. And you are right stevea the show reflected the times and there is no harm in that.

I agree about saying the right things. In Hollywood, you must go along with the group mentality, or suffer the consequences. You have to be very high up on the ladder to buck the crowd.
