14 September 2013
...since I've always preferred:
Lost in Space to Star Trek
Jose Feliciano's "Light My Fire" to The Doors'
network television to cable
The 12 Chairs to any other Mel Brooks film
Miracle on 34th Street to any other Xmas film
Popeye to any other Robin Williams film
most films without Robin Williams to films with him
and, just to make it clear,
Mindy to Mork.
I also prefer:
Zelig to Forest Gump
Ava Gardner's Barefoot Contessa to that cook's
Peggy Sue Got Married to Back to the Future
gambling on baseball to PEDs
American Graffiti to any other Lucas film
Richie Cunningham to Fonzie
Susan Saint James to Jill Saint John and Eva Marie Saint
Roger Moore as "The Saint" to Roger Moore as "James Bond"
Pierce Brosnan as "Remington Steele" to Pierce Brosnan as "James Bond"
The Montefuscos to The Sopranos
Toy Story II to Toy Story
30 minutes of Cronkite to 24/7 of any other news
Bewitched (the series NOT that Will Ferrell thing) to Harry Potter
Homicide to Wired
Mr. Bubble to Michael Buble
Law and Order to Law and Order SVU, CI, MIA, PDQ, and WTF
Neil Sedaka's "Stairway to Heaven" to Led Zeppelin's
and, of course,
The Scarlet Letter to The Catcher in the Rye
