Boy, They Sure Don't Make Shows Like This Anymore.....

Tell me that a few edits to the dialogue wouldn't make this relevent today........

From "HERE" go check out a good post.


  1. Not sure it need any edits. Simply people with enough wits to understand common sense when they hear or see it.
    Sadly.......the WITS button hasn't been installed on many who have even a so called Ivy League education.
    Maybe they need to shovel shit in a cattle barn for few years. That's a great place to learn how not to get too much shit splashed in your mouth. Either that or learn to like the taste.

  2. I liked the show, used to watch it when I was a kid and after that I watched the reruns. I liked this particular clip too but the biased eye of the media was already making its way into Hollyweird even back then. For the character Bill Gannon (Harry Morgan) to say: 'we remember a man who killed 6 million people and called it social improvement' just galls me. There were actually more than 12 million people killed in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany, some say 13 million, and that 6 million number is a reference that always omits the non-Jews. Yes, the attempted extermination of the Jews was heinous but so too was the annihilation of the mentally ill of Germany, the killing off of political and religious dissenters, the murders of other ethnic groups and the attempted extermination of the Gypsies. To forget, or purposefully overlook, that another 6 to 7 million were killed is not only a shame, it is an outrage of the highest magnitude. Sorry to rant on in your rant but that always gets me going. I just cannot believe the audacity of some people to remember only the one group at the expense of the others, to believe only their group is worthy of mention, or to teach only one group of people was targeted while forgetting all the others who also died terrible deaths at the hands of the Nazis.

    That show, of all shows, should have gotten that fact correct but in what was then the political correctness of the day they apparently deccided it was convenient to forget about 6 to 7 million other human beings. What a disgrace.

    All the best,
    Glenn B
