    Anything that requires canned laughter to be funny is usually unfunny.

    Did he invent that chicken joke?

    It was also a sitcom from the 1980s.





    Nothing was funny in the 1980s.

    are you saying kids don't watch TV in the evenings ?
    To suggest that shows target audience was anything but kids is ridiculous. I'm guessing it was on 7 or 7.30 in the evening.
    You've never seen it have you.
    Or maybe you have and that's your kind of show.

    You've got to be some dumb fucker to think advertisers are going to pay top dollar for 8pm peak slot adverts aimed at kids.

    Again: It was a G-rated Family show.

    Perhaps you don't understand the demographics of the American viewer.

    The God Botherers love this wholesome, positive values, happy endings shit.

    Believe it or not there are still some that think it is inappropriate for children.

    A memorable performance in Flight of the Phoenix (another movie that should never have been remade).

    German film star Hardy Kruger dies suddenly, aged 93


    The RIP Famous Person Thread-yp101am9op071-jpg

    German actor Hardy Kruger, who starred in a string of English-language adventure and war movies, has died in the US aged 93.

    His Hamburg-based literary agent, Peter Kaefferlein, said that Kruger died "suddenly and unexpectedly" on Wednesday in California, where he lived with his third wife, American-born writer Anita Park.

    Kruger starred in the 1957 British movie The One That Got Away about a captured German fighter pilot who stages a series of daring attempts to escape the Allies and - as the title suggests - finally succeeds.

    His charm, good looks and the fact that he deserted from the Nazi army towards the end of the Second World War helped Kruger land roles at a time when Germans of his generation were still eyed with suspicion abroad.


    The fight against racism and the education of young people was his personal mission in life


    Kruger also appeared in A Bridge Too Far in 1977 and The Wild Geese in 1978.


    In later years, he focused on making travel films for German television, writing books and the occasional stage performance.

    Franz Eberhard August Krueger was born on April 12 1928 in Berlin.

    Initially, he wanted to follow in the footsteps of his engineer father, but while at an elite Nazi boarding school he appeared in the 1944 film Junge Adler.


    While it was intended as a propaganda movie, Kruger's encounter with older actors on the set opened his eyes to the horrors of Adolf Hitler's dictatorship.

    As the war turned against Germany, Kruger’s Hitler Youth unit was drafted into the newly formed SS division Nibelungen.
    Kruger, who was 16 at the time, found himself fighting experienced American troops in southern Germany.

    In a 2006 interview with German daily Bild, he recounted how he and his school friends were sent to the front "as cannon fodder" in Hitler’s futile attempt to halt the Allies’ advance.


    "I knew the war was lost," he told the newspaper. "I knew that there were concentration camps and that the Nazis were a bunch of criminals."


    Kruger deserted and was captured by the Allies and spent some time as a POW. After the war, he returned to acting, first in theatres and then in Germany’s re-emerging movie industry.

    It's never nice to lose another human being, but his music was absolutely fucking shite.

    It's a shame he didn't lose his voice first.
