1 @FF: The issue with apostrophes, parentheses, and other spacial characters has nothing to do with your being on a Mac. There is a glitch that is causing the site to reject any submissions with those characters on the grounds that they contain invalid characters. Utter BS, we know. The web guy has been contacted repeatedly about the issue, but so far to no avail. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 27, 2017, 9:56 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I recently discovered this old show. I do not ever recall catching it when it originally ran on WB. Time travel has always been one of my go to favorite Sci Fi sub genres so when I found old episodes of this show on youtube, I decided to check it out. I thought the premise was pretty cool. Disillusioned adult with a number of regrets in life is knocked unconscious in a freak accident then wakes up and finds he is a teenager again back in the 80s. I was interested merely for the fact that I myself was a teenager in the 80s so I thought the nostalgia factor would be off the charts for me and Do Over did not completely disappoint me in that regard. Honestly, who has not had that fantasy of being able to go back in time within your own body with your adult memories intact upon arrival and be able to use that knowledge to forge a better more fulfilling life for yourself as well as for those you care about most? Or to right some wrongs you know will happen or that you yourself might have committed? Sadly this show, as I understand it did not even make one full season. I managed to watch most of the episodes I could find and intend to eventually finish the series out at some point. Over all, I personally enjoyed it. In many ways it had a Ferris Bueller quality to it. In fact, they even did an episode where they spoofed Ferris Buellers Day Off. Late in its run you could kind of tell the point in which the show was in trouble and they were trying hard to pull in an audience. I think with the right writing team and somewhat better research into the era of the early 1980s, I think this show could have been a real winner. Unfortunately, over the course of the run of this show, it began to feel more and more like a slightly better version of a typical Nickelodeon show and for me, that is when the boning knife hit the flesh of the fish for this one. Side Note, in case you are wondering why I avoid using contractions or apostrophes and parentheticals in my comments here, it is because my submissions error out when I use all those things. Is it because I am on a Mac? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 23, 2017, 10:29 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
