Subject: If you could exist in TV Universe...which shows would you want to be a part of?

Written By: snozberries on 10/20/10 at 1:23 pm



So I found this http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/blogs/2009/06/awesome-cartoon-houses-we-wish-we-could-live-in/
It basically lists the top 10 cartoon/chirldren's show homes they would want to live in.

I decided to expand it.  If you could, living as yourself, exist in any of the TV Shows past or present, which tv family, friends, co-workers would you want to hang with?


I always wanted to take a cruise on the Love Boat.  I thought it'd be fun with to hang with Gopher and Julie.

I also wanted to spend a week on Fantasy Island!  I don't know what my fantasy would've been but I'm sure it would've been good.

I wanted to go to Eastland with Natalie, Jo, Tootie and even Blair

I wanted to attend Hillman College with Whitley, Dwayne, Jalessa and crew.... mostly after Jada got there...

I thought I'd get along great with the girls from Living Single so I wanted to be a friend who could chill in their living room too.

I wanted to spend Halloween with the Conners...

And I would love to be Garcia's sidekick on Criminal Minds!!!  plus I want to date Morgan...  ;)



your turn.....

A few thoughts:

I'd be a kid on the Brady Bunch, or the Waltons.

I'd live down the hall from Jerry and Kramer.

I'd be Barbara Cooper's boyfriend in "One day at a time"

I'd be the paper boy in Dick Van Dyke show, with a crush on Laura Petrie.

I'd be a cast member on SOAP.

I'd go back in time and make sure Scrappy doo never got on TV. ;D

Baby, if you've ever wondered,
Wondered whatever became of me,
I'm living on the air in Cincinnati,
Cincinnati, WKRP.

Got kind of tired packing and unpacking,
Town to town and up and down the dial
Maybe you and me were never meant to be,
But baby think of me once in awhile.

I'm at WKRP in Cincinnati..


The problem with that is that it is in Ohio.  8-P

Could always hang out at Cheers. (I actually been there.)

I could say the Stratford Inn in Newhart but then again, I DO live there!  :D ;D ;D

I used to work with these two guys in their fifties, Vern and Roy, who totally reminded me of Statler and Waldorf.

If you can picture Statler and Waldorf as a couple of foul-mouthed, rough-around-the-edges and somewhat redneckish yet good-natured blue collar guys, sitting in a dive bar instead of in the balcony of a fancy theater, then you'd have Vern and Roy.  :D

I want to eat at the restaurants on It's a Living, Alice, the nightclub on Malcom and Eddie, P3 on Charmed, The Peach Pit on Beverly Hills 90210, Central Perk on Friends, the cafe on Life Goes On.

I can SOOOO picture that. The funny thing is, when I first moved to Vermont, everyone asked me if I met Larry, Darrel, & Darrel. I said no but I met George Utley. No joke. The first house I lived in when I first moved here had a maintenance guy who reminded me TOTALLY of George. He name was Dan but I always called him George. The thing was, he was from New Hampshire (because at the time, I lived just a hop, skip, & a jump from NH).

But real life's not so bad:  Silver Spoons.  I may not be wealthy, but I do have a small arcade in my living room.

Will Foo ever escape the middle class?  Will Maxwell eventually hang him with the rope that Foo sold him?  Will Howard ever get laid?  These questions - and many others - will be answered in the next episode of Inthe00s!  (Cue theme music...)

Well 3 of those days you were cruising... the other 49 you're probably held captive by Central American Guerrillas!  ;)


Want to get hospital treatment at St. Elsewhere, E/R and ER (both starring George Clooney), Marcus Welby, M.D., Becker, Doogie Howser, M.D., and take my cat to the vet on Providence.


I agree... I notice you left out House and his team (good plan. I mean he may be the best diagnostician in NJ but he comes close to killing his patients before figuring out what's wrong with them. He does that a lot....then maybe 10-15% of the time he actually does kill them...  I should go back and watch House from the beginning and find out the percentage of his patients that do die.) that would be fun!


I want to stay at the hotel on Hotel, the Nutt House, The Golden Palace, The Monteceto on Las Vegas, move into the Susan B. Anthony residence for women on Bosom Buddies, visit all the homes of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Angela's house on Falcon Crest.

Oh I would love to hang at the Montecito in Las Vegas! What a great Hotel that was!!!!

I want to work at Warehouse 13, the Blue Moon Detective Agency on Moonlighting, Ten Items or Less, Twins, Frasier's radio station, the Cold Case Philadelphia Cold Case Squad, the office on Herman's Head, the FBI in either Numbers or Without a Trace, I want to be a spy on Get Smart.

I could work with the cops at Cold Case, tho Scottie annoys me a bit.  I think I'd love to work with the guys on Southland... actually I just really want to be partners with Regina King... her character kicks ass!  I would love to work on Third Watch!!!



I want to go to school at the New York School for the Performing Arts on Fame, in Outer Space on Galaxy High, Square Pegs, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Strangers with candy, Head of the Class, City Guys, and any of the incarnations of DeGrassi.


I would get kicked of the School of Performing Arts for having no talent! lol   I could totally go to Degrassi tho!!!  I think I'd want to pull a Snake and be a student with the class from the 80s and be a teacher now... I don't think I'd survive high school as it now...



I want to eat at the restaurants on It's a Living, Alice, the nightclub on Malcom and Eddie, P3 on Charmed, The Peach Pit on Beverly Hills 90210, Central Perk on Friends, the cafe on Life Goes On.


Would you really eat at Mel's??? I always wondered why the regulars came back- no one ever made it sound like the food was edible. Plus he had atrocious food handling habits!   I could eat at the Peach Pit tho and I forgot all about the cafe from Life Goes On... good call!   I always wanted to have some of Ruby's chili from Kellys on General Hospital.  

I could totally hang at Central Perk and P3. I love how much thought you put into this Patty


I want to be neighbors of The Golden Girls, Empty Nest, The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd, Alf, The Charmings, Jennifer Slept Here, Just the Ten of Us, Kate & Allie, Angie, Too Close for Comfort, Northern Exposure,  Dharma & Greg, Eight is enough, The Brady Brides, Half & Half, Mama's Family, Grace Under Fire, Cosby AND The Cosby Show, My name is Earl, Drew Carey Show, Major Dad, Homefront, The Torklesons, and That '70s Show.


Wow!  I could totally hang with Kate & Allie... before Allie married Bob... I hate Bob.... I would've loved to have been around the Designing Women. Especially Jean Smart and Delta Burke were still there.



I want to live in Silver Spoons mansion, Diff'rent Strokes' Mansion, The Addams Family House, and even Good Times apartment because there is always something going on there.



when I was younger I was so jealous of Ricky and the home on Silver Spoons.  That was, and to some extent still is, my dream home... all the toys and crap!!! My god I'd never leave the house!!!



And lastly I want to be in episodes of the Twilight Zone, Stephen Speilberg's Amazing Stories and Star Trek.


Which eps of Twilight Zone would you want to be in?  I'd want to be in a version of "Time Enough To Last" where instead of being surrounded by books I'd be surrounded by TVS and DVDS... with my luck tho instead of breaking glasses I'd be left with static on my TV and only VCRs to play the DVDS on.  :-\\

I could happily live the rest of my life in TV Land.

Oh I like the other characters on Cold Case, tho you're right I prefer the Closer and Criminal Minds more,  but I don't really like the writing that much. I think the dialogue is kind of stale - feels like they hired some people who worked on NYPD Blue... everyone says NYPD Blue is a great show but if you listen to their dialogue only- it's not that great... they had a formula on NYPD and they followed it to a tee... and some of those same bad habits are present in Cold CAse....


I totally wanted to be Sam's boyfriend on "Who's The Boss".  Although the prospect of having to face Tony and Angela...that might be too much to ask from me. ;D

would you do me a favor and tell Jonathon that everyone already figured out he's gay... that way- 15 yrs later- when some reporter threatens to "out" him he will have the peace of mind to know we know already and don't really care...

I never said I wanted to date Penelope/Kirsten. I just wanted to be her sidekick as well.



well then... no I won't move over... can have my seat once I get Derek Morgan in my grasp!!!  :P

While you could date Penelope if you were so inclined... you'd never get a date with Kristen...  let's just say I'm more her type than you are  ;)





Problem is, you'd probably get fired over it.




Soooo true!!! ;D  damnit!  >:(


You could be on to something there. I never really paid much attention to the dialogues.
Mind you - I wouldn't mind dating Lily Rush. ;)


you can have her...



Consider it done.


thank you!


Yay!! Now where did I put the C-4? :D (Never mind the myth!)

What games?


Asteroids, Defender, Tempest, Centipede, and a generic upright JAMMA machine that'll plug into original motherboards, and which also cooperates nicely with a spare PC running MAME, which covers just about everything else.  Pain to have to rotate the monitor 90 degrees when I want to switch from Smash TV to fiddling with a Pac-Man board, so I usually just leave the monitor horizontally and let MAME do the work.

Of course, games that once cost $3000 (in 1980 dollars) can now be had for around $300 (in 2010 dollars), so it's a pretty affordable hobby. I just wish I had more space for more cabinets...

Real estate ain't gotten cheaper, so you've still gotta have a Silver Spoons budget if you want to buy a house big enough to hold everything!

I love this question. I don't know if this would include game shows too, because if so then I'd say Who Wants to be A Millionaire for the obvious reasons. That or Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Hmmm. For family, I would say The Cosby Show or Growing Pains. For adventure, I'd say Star Trek: The Next Generation (the Enterprise's uniform colors might get a little drab for my taste though). For creative activity and stimulation, then maybe Project Runway or Art 21.

Yup. I saw something about it several years back saying how Andora HAD it right. I remember as kid not liking Andora but now, I LOVE her. A woman who stands up for women's rights-whether she be moral or immoral, witch or no witch. And Sam was just so WRONG for allowing Darrin to control her like that. She was so much more powerful than he was and that scared the bejesus out of him so he HAD to control her. If she had the guts, she could have told him to accept her witchcraft or she will turn him into a toad.
