Hey, when did you last see Mr. Terrific? (And I don't mean the poorly editied The Pill Caper, TVLand's mutilated print of Matchless or the one substantially complete ep. that's been circulating for years: Stanley the Safecracker.)

I've managed, finally, to collect virtually the entire series, though there are 3 eps. I still don't have with the original, English soundtracks. They're somewhat "snowy" prints, but they're better than nothing.

Weak scripts? Yeah.

But it had a fine cast, generally solid direction and a premise (and theme song) that I absolutely love.

No, it ain't M*A*S*H or Seinfeld or Dick Van Dyke, but I still get a kick out of watching this old fave of mine.

The only "worst" list I'd put Mr. Terrific on is:"Worst shame that these shows still aren't available on DVD."

Too bad that show didn't inspire high-speed passenger rail development in America.

Second Time Around (UPN) fall 2004
Phenom (ABC) 1993-1994
Top of the Heap (Fox)
Pete and Pete (Nickelodeon), it lasted a few seasons back in the early 90's on NICK. Very awful and should have never been greenlighted for a pilot.

In response to the Preston Episodes comment, I thought that show had potential but given a bad timeslot and no time to prove itself.

I don't know if this has been posted, but "The Trouble With Larry". It aired back in 1993 and was pulled after three episodes. The show was dogged even before it aired on CBS. People referred to the show as "crude" and "degrading". If defense of the show, there were other shows on the air that were somewhat degrading as well. "Larry" starred Bronson Pinchot.

Default ACCIDENTAL FAMILY

I select a Jerry Van Dyke show. No, NOT "MY MOTHER THE CAR."
When compared to his other NBC series, "ACCIDENTAL FAMILY," "CAR"
looks like Shakespeare. The show ran for 16 painful weeks in the
1967-68 season. John Byner and the late Lois Nettleton were co-stars.
This is the most ill-conceived, poorly written, unfunny show I've ever seen.

Supertrain was a midseason replacement in the 1978-79 season. The other two shows were on the air in the eighties.

Yeah, thats true, Delta House (may not have the name right) was based on an R rated movie and didnt last long.
However, Ive wondered if this premise.....fraternity house does hi-jinks, gross out humor, sex stuff etc...would work on cable. There is a demand for it. 'Jackass' IMO is an Animal House set in the real world eg. city streets, golf courses, parks, stores....instead of a college campus and was an enormous success. Yeah, I think an R-rated version of Delta House could do quite well on HBO or Showtime.

What does everyone else think?

the one thing i remember about delta house was a scene where one guy hits another guy in the face with a pie as he walks through the door and the guy says im sorry i hit you now lets get you cleaned up and then lets go get a giant weiner .now when i was 7 i thought that bit was funny but now as a 36 year old man im not sure what i would think if i saw that bit again so i guess abc might have been trynig to pander to 7 year olds with delta house although my first grade teachers husband liked it
