Once upon a time, there were only three channels and seemingly only a few dozen television shows.  I still remember the ones that filled the wandering hours between school and baseball practice, things like ‘Gilligan’s Island’, ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’ and ‘Get Smart.’  In those pre-streaming, pre-DVD, even pre-VHS days, you had to make do with what you had, even if what you had was the occasionally-insufferable Brady Kids.  I love the show as a whole, but man, are those characters messed up.  They learned the same lessons over and over and treated their cousin Oliver terribly, not to mention all the moments where they were by turns arrogant, awful, untruthful, snotty, snide or borderline dysfunctional, leading to today’s bringing-up-three-very-lovely query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is gonna go with Peter, mostly because he seemed like an okay kid except that one time his explicable twin showed up at school, asking: Which member of The Bunch would you choose to be your sitcom best pal?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
