One of my favorite hotels in Honolulu is the Ilikai. When ever I tell people that, they say, huh?? I tell them, you know, Hawaii Five-0, opening credits, McGarrett is standing on the Penthouse balcony of a hotel . . . . that's the place. It's a Marriott affiliate . . .

Damm Falcon, want to race next time?
Actually what I need to have released on DVD is the old, "Emergency" TV show.
I have a brother that is a volunteer firefighter and I have been harrasing him the past few years by giving him firefighter movies, The Towering Inferno, Hellfighters, and a couple of real direct to video ones I picked up at the used rack at Blockbuster.
Another show that needs to come out is one that most people haven't heard of, "Tales of the Gold Monkey"
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Hogans Heroes was too funny. The stories of some of the castmembers is pretty good as well. Everyone has heard of the exploits of Bob Crane, but how many people know that Ivan Dixon was one of the pioneering black Americans in the field of television directing as well as acting? He costarred with Belafonte in Porgy and Bess, and with Poitier in A Raisin in the Sun. Richard Dawson was a successful game show host as we all know, but he was a very successful businessman as well, and Larry Hovis was a college professor in addition to being an actor until his death.
In Klemperers later years he was a regular on Bill Maher's ABC show before he went off the liberal deepend. When he was in his libertarian phase the show was a bit more balanced and had more opinions from either end of the spectrum and Werner Klemperer was well informed and funny.
I know, useless trivia, but this was one funny damned show. The performers brought the writing to life (not the other way around) and should be remembered for that.
L-188...I believe that you can get Emergency! on video. Let me find it and I'll let you know where.

I love Hogan's Heros. It used to be on TVLand about 4 years ago, but I haven't seen any since. What a great show!!!!
"You have apple strudel?"
"I know nothing!"
Once of my favorite scenes was when Hogan was telling Klink that there were tunnels under the camp. Klink says impossible, If there were Schultz would have fallen through the ground by now. Hogan says, "but they are pretty deep." Klink says, "Schultz is heavier than any tunnel!"
I really wish they would bring it back on TV
Green Acres is also pretty good. Gotta love Arnold Ziffel.
