Caveman
My Mother the Car
Ferris Bueller
Supertrain (is that considered a sitcom?)
Tammy Grimes Show (yikes!)
Girl with Something Extra
Itís About Time (especially Joe E. Ross)
Tabitha (never liked Bewitched, so updated Bewitched was even worse)


There are more but my mind is drawing a blank. Flo was terrible but I think it technically lasted two seasons, one abbreviated. Angie was meh. Decent in the beginning but bland the more the series lasted. Again, a two season show.

I donít think Iíve ever seen Cop Rock, but Iíve heard so much about it.

They made a ferris bueller tv show without the guy who played him in the movie?

Yes. Charlie Schlatter, later a regular on Diagnosis Murder, played Ferris Bueller in the TV show from 1990, which only lasted 13 episodes. Jennifer Aniston played his sister a few years before she hit it big with Friends.

My Mother The Car and It's About Time are not good shows although I did buy the DVD sets because I figured it's something unusual to have.

The Tammy Grimes Show lasted only four episodes, I watched an episode on You Tube and she has a weird sounding voice, strange accent, it's not easy to understand what she's saying.

The Girl With Something Extra, I recorded those episodes from GetTV a few years ago. It's not really a bad show but it's sort of on the dull and bland side, I can see why it didn't get renewed for a 2nd season. And from what I understand, John Davidson and Sally Field weren't really fond of each other, either he didn't like her or she didn't like him, this is strange because they seemed to have decent enough chemistry when acting together on the TV show.

Tammy Grimes Show has two kinescope episodes on YouTube (that’s where I saw the show). Both are terrible. I doubt the other two that aired were any better. Her accent I think is called “Mid Atlantic”, but it’s clearly fallen out favor, perhaps even when she was growing up. That’s her real accent too, unless she faked it in every video.

I’ve seen the first two episodes of The New Andy Griffith Show. Not good. The sister is just plain annoying, and the kids add nothing. Bringing in the Mayberry characters to guest on the first episode, and Don Knotts as an unnamed friend was clearly a gimmick for ratings. If Knotts actually had a recurring role, it may have helped.

Never cared for Jennifer Slept here either, but it’s not one of the worst shows I’ve seen.
