    Re: Most Overrated

    Speaking of television shows, I don't understand how people can call Two and a Half Men a tolerable show, let alone a good one. It's some of the worst TV I've ever seen, and that's really saying something coming from a guy who grew up with soap operas.

    One of the things I am very much looking forward to is to see how the Beatles are viewed by the general population once the Boomers are all in the grave. Obviously they won't just disappear or become irrelevant ... but how much,if at all, will time erode their memory/influence/standing? Will the become even more revered?

    The entire concept of the show after Charlie's demise is ridiculous.

    Not that I am the biggest Two and a Half Men fan, but I think I literally disagree with every post of yours that I have ever read. lol. We are polar opposites in every view of life, except for our love of the Reds.

    The people who disagree with me the most are the ones I tend to have the most respect for.

    Their social significance is just as impressive as their catalogue, IMO.

    I think they have a place in history in both regards.

    I remember the shock wave sent around the world when their look changed from the "mop top" look, all wearing the same suit on stage, to the new "hippie" version.

    Of course their music changed as well, and changed rock and roll forever.

    No discussion of America in the 20th century is complete without the Beatles and their many influences. The Beatles WERE the 60's.

    I used to watch it years ago and liked it. Last season I didn't watch it at all. The three times I attempted to watch it this season I haven't been able to get past the first 5 minutes. I doubt I will try again.

    You know what's NOT overrated at all? Thanksgiving, everyone have a happy and safe one.

    Thanks, and you do the same.

    As for the topic, I think the show Arrested Development is over rated.

    My cousin bought me seasons 1 and 2 a couple of years ago, and I made it about halfway through S1 before I lost interest completely. I've had probably close to a dozen people tell me that it is the funniest show on television, but I just don't see why. There were parts that were funny, for sure, but as a whole I just didn't think it was very good.

    Maybe it's not really overrated, but I don't understand how anyone can actually prefer white meat over dark meat. Give me the drumsticks and the rest of you can have the breast.
