In 1996, Crash Bandicoot began his historic PS1 career and Ray Romano smiled at the camera for the first time. 2006 brought us LEGO Chewbacca and a real bad Black Dahlia film!

Chris opens the show saying Peewee says the “magic word,” then says that Jerry Stiller plays Jerry Seinfeld’s dad shortly after that.
I watched Peewee, LA Law, and Our House, a strange combo for a nine year old at the time. I don’t know how I had so much time to watch all the TV, play all the video games, and still go outside and play soccer and stuff that I did when I as young.
I hated Bleach and yet I read all of it.
The Fantastic Four 2006 show is the only version of them Ive liked, the opening is great I wish you played it.
And Bleach only just ended like two weeks ago so its been 10 years!
I think something might be wrong with my audio player,, I could’ve sworn I just heard Dave say “you can always depend on Everybody Loves Raymond and King of Queens to be entertaining”. ;D
I cracked up when Chris brought up that Peter McNeely pizza commercial. Even as a kid I remember being shocked at how bad it was…
I loved the Real Ghostbusters as a kid and I think some episodes (like Mrs. Rogers Neighbourhood) are still legitimately creepy. I love that they even did some Lovecraft mythology later on.
(That was JMS, later to be famous for creating Babylon 5),
But I fucking hated Dave Coulier. I hate the way he did the voice, and I loved Lorenzo Music’s voice. It was dry and sarcastic, and I hated the fact they went back and dubbed Lorenzo Music episodes with Dave Coulier. It fucking sucked.
So I had a Zune (and now I have a Zune HD! Still.) and I have a funny story. I never knew anyone else with a Zune, so I never tried the sharing feature. But one time I was on an airplane, and the guy sitting next to me whips out a Zune. So I take mine out and we clearly both had the exact same idea: let’s see how this sharing thing works! Ten minutes later, we gave up without actually sharing anything. Which is really for the best, because I have awful taste in music, and now I have this dumb story!
I had a Zune and absolutely loved it. It was fantastic. It was way better than the ipod was at the time.
