    You tell ’em, Mark.  I never watched that show.  I preferred MASH.  See, in MASH drinking and womanizing were virtues of the highest order…though I’m sure Hawkeye was smoking reefer, too…Report

  4. Somebody had to do it, Will.  Being forced to watch all these reruns has woken me up to the nefarious influence that show had on my generation.  Plus, given how bad that show’s acting and direction were, and given its popularity amongst my generation, I think it can be at least indirectly blamed for the downfall of American culture over the last 20 years.  Watch enough Saved By The Bell, and your music isn’t going to be influenced by Pearl Jam, punk rock, or The Sugar Hill Gang – it’s going to be influenced by the $#%^& Zack Attack.  Similarly, I think I could create a direct line connecting Saved By The Bell and Ashton Kutcher’s ability to gross $200 million plus for “What Happens In Vegas…”

    I should have also pointed out that the ringleader of the Bayside High Theft, Fraud, and Kidnapping Ring went on to join the NYPD, proving the old adage that the attributes that make a good criminal also make a good cop. Report
