because I don’t feel like blogging tonight, you all get to watch an episode of “small wonder”

[Don’t complain. It could have been worse. Luckily for you, Linette talked me down.]

    It’s been over an hour and there aren’t any comments yet… What’s wrong with you people? This is Small Wonder! Do you people not have the capacity to comprehend beauty?

    Judging by these two clips, I take it you still harbor an inner desire to learn how to moonwalk. I believe there is still time to form a family act around this.

    Small Wonder was ahead of its time, or do you not remember Episode 46: ‘During Jamie’s part-time gas station job, V.I.C.I. fine-tunes a car to go 50 miles a gallon, causing oil companies and oil sheiks alike to drop by the Lawsons’ door.’

    In the future, we will be able to order cable tv a la carte. I believe a fitting companion show is anything Robert Tilton or Dr. Gene Scott. And I wrote that before seeing in Wikipedia that the actress who played V.I.C.I. was last seen on TV on the 700 Club.

    Yeah, putting a Small Wonder youtube clip head to head with the Olympics is a tough sell.

    You should have gone with the other video. Any show with Erin Grey isn’t all bad.

    I’ve always taken it for granted that most of the folks appearing on the 700 Club are robots.

    There exists a small circle of academics that believe V.I.C.I. was indeed a robot. I haven’t read though all of their evidence yet, but they seem to have some persuasive facts on their side… Like the production company behind the show operating through a mail drop in Los Angeles also used by the lobbyist of a defense contractor. There are also some grainy photos from Iraq showing a little right in a red dress and knee socks blowing the heads off of insurgents with laser beams.

    Your stupidity astounds me.

    The little girl was the only one on the show that wasn’t a robot.

    Easy there, Mr. X.

    Who said Mark’s desire to moonwalk was ever inner?

    According to a comment left on Washed Up Celebrities dotcom, Jerry Supiran, the boy who played her brother on the show is a cook living in Laughlin, NV, where he gambles and has a teardrop tattoo on his face.

    It’s no ‘small wonder’ that this blog of yours still gets regular traffic.

    We’d all be better off if Mark would keep his desires a little more ‘inner.’

    By the way, nobody take all the insults I’ve been leveling against everyone lately, too personally. I’m working on becoming the Don Rickles of markmaynard.com.

    Since George Carlin and Bernie Back dropped dead, I’ve had Rickles under a 24 hour watch. Once he goes, I’ll step in to fill the vacuum. I’m thinking of going with the stage name ‘Ron Dickles.’ I better check with Steve Swan first though. It sounds like one he might have used in some of his productions.

    I’ve worked with Ron Dickles (he does in fact exist), and you, sir, are no Ron Dickles.

    (Ron in I were in a film called Hog Wild: The Taming of the Sow about 4 years ago.)

    There you are. I thought I smelled body oil.

    Hog Wild? Oh yes! I saw that one…
    …well, I saw most of it, watching it in two minute clips per day over the period of a month or so.

    Seems as though I’m nto the only one influenced by Small Wonder.
