Believe It Or Not It's Just Me

Spiderman 2 is a very good film. It gets two thumbs up for positive values and all that good stuff. It's better than action films are supposed to be and it does it without being preachy, overly sentimental or wimpy. The film is all about heroism, pure and simple.

Speaking of which, does anybody remember that idiot show 'The Greatest American Hero'? Sorry if mentioning it makes you retch. I thought about that show in the wake of Reagan as an example of the soppy crap of the pre-Reagan era. But it started in '81. There has got to be a really, smashingly incriminating liberal review of that television show, that my inner conservative attack dog would like to shred to bits.

On the other hand, perhaps I should really just get some sleep and let it go.

There was a pilot for a spin-off for that thing from the early 90s, "The Greatest American Heroine," that was made and never aired (kind of like that [retch] "Justice League" pilot or "Fantastic Four" movie that never aired). I haven't been able to see it, but I'd like to (call it a sense of self-punishment)...

I guess since I loved "Greatest American Hero" I should just go hide. But hey, I was 12! For all I know I'd hate it as an adult too.

I loved "Greatest American Hero", too. I still know all the words to the theme song!

Funny it's on your mind: That show's theme music was used over footage of Bush's May 2003 "Mission Accomplished" carrier visit in "Fahrenheit 9/11."
