WTM's Comments

Well, Andrew, I had certainly not intended to bring up politics at all, and this post was not meant to be subtle political commentary, but the two terms to which you object have now entered the popular vernacular, with 'Flyover Country' meaning 'rural' or 'small town' and 'Deplorables' meaning those who live in flyover country. See, for example, https://voxdeplorables.com and https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=flyover+country. I used to live in Lubbock, Texas, 'the buckle of the bible belt', and it was definitely flyover country full of what would today be termed 'deplorables, and Hee-Haw was must-see TV there. While there are exceptions, most rural fans of Hee-Haw would certainly have been found in that infamous 'basket of deplorables'.

It has to be better than Wreck-it Ralph 2, which was such a disappointment; a 2-hour Disney commercial that I had to pay to see. Not to mention the Incredibles 2, which was so awful that it wasn't even released - it escaped.

I have great ideas for numerous films and sequels but that is a tough market to break into. Too bad for the paying public, I guess. This film might be a surprise, but if so, then I will be surprised.

Well, this site gives ticket cost data: https://rmstitanic1912.weebly.com/the-cost-of-tickets.html

Actually, most if not all bodies of those drowned (i.e., without lifejackets) would have sunk to the bottom since once the lungs were filled with seawater, the body would be denser than seawater. The hydrostatic pressure would not have 'destroyed' the bodies since, if the lungs were filled with water, the bodies would then be incompressible. And, not only would aquatic life have stripped the flesh, but the calcium-deficient seawater at that depth would have soon dissolved the bone, leaving no trace of human remains.

Oh, sorry, no Urban Dictionary definition here. WTM is me, and the WTM curse is that it seems that most programs I liked as a child lasted only one or two seasons, often just one as was the case for Honey West. I have mentioned this "curse" extensively through these posts, as they have frequently concerned obscure TV shows that few others have heard of. Run, Buddy, Run is another good example.

Excellent. I think the second film was just very rushed for some reason; it was released the next year. I'd like to have seen a third. Put Phibes in Hell and it wouldn't be a week before he was running the place. Quite the mechanical genius too.

The Badmovies.org review perfectly mirrors your last sentence.

But other westerns did survive past TWWW. The High Chaparral lasted until 1971, Bonanza until 1973, and Gunsmoke until 1975. there were probably others, but for a while during the 1960's one could hardly turn on a TV without finding a western. True, there are none now, but they died a slow death.

Good job on Krystal!
