Dumbest TV Shows from the '70s and '80s The 1970s and 1980s were great decades for television. Unfortunately, even during good times, a few terrible shows slip through the cracks. -- "M.A.S.H." was a popular show, but many fans agreed that it should have ended when it did. After all, it was on the air for nearly a decade. However, producers and writers seemed to believe otherwise, so they developed a follow-up: "AfterMASH." After the first season, ratings tanked, and CBS canceled it after about nine episodes of the second season, which aired during the early 1980s. -- As the producers of "M.A.S.H." learned, attempting to capitalize on something that is already a huge hit can be a huge waste of time, money, and effort. Such was the case with "Galactica 1980." The "Battlestar Galactica" spin-off had a tiny budget and terrible ratings, and ABC canceled it after just 10 episodes. Many critics have called it one of the worst sci-fi shows of all time. -- When NBC wanted to schedule something to match up against ratings giant "Dallas" in 1983, it came up with "Manimal," which was as bad as the name implies. In 2002, "TV Guide" called it the 15th worst show of all time. It was about a man who could change himself into any animal at any time. No wonder it only lasted seven episodes. -- When it aired in 1978, "Supertrain" had the largest budget of any TV show ever made. Unfortunately, throwing money at something doesn't make it good, and it lasted only nine episodes. No one watched the show about the nuclear-powered train that had the amenities of a cruise ship, and it nearly bankrupted NBC. -- "Joanie Loves Chachi" proved that even heartthrobs can't save TV shows. The "Happy Days" spinoff was a good idea in theory, as it depicted young Joanie and Chachi moving to Chicago to start their own rock band. "TV Guide" named it one of the "25 Biggest TV Blunders." -- The hit show "The Brady Bunch" prompted several spinoffs throughout the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, but the worst of them all was probably "The Brady Brides." It was originally supposed to be a movie, but NBC decided it would make a great show. Many people compared the show to "The Odd Couple," because it focused on the two sisters living together with their new husbands, who were polar opposites.
Facts About Marvel's Cinematic Universe to Get You Pumped For Avengers: Age of Ultron Gearing up for the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron? We are here at Answers. We're so stoked that we did a bit of research and came up with some amazing facts about your favorite Marvel characters and movies. -- To fully become Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. had to put on the suit that comprised of 450 separate pieces. -- Agent Phil Coulson was originally just a tiny role, only having the name "Agent." However as the Marvel movies matured, and his popularity with the cast increased, he was given a proper name and a more main role. -- JARVIS actually stands for "Just A Rather Very Intelligent System." Jarvis was changed to a computer system from Tony's butler in the comics, this was done to avoid the similarities with Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth. -- Mickey Rourke, the actor that played Whiplash, actually had a huge say in how the character looked and presented himself. -- The role for Thor actually came down to two people: Chris Hemsworth (who would play the role) and his brother, Liam Hemsworth. Talk about sibling rivalry. Tom Hiddleston (Loki) also applied for the role of Thor, before being cast as Loki. -- Chris Evans, the actor that played Captain Steve Rogers, Captain America, declined the role three times before the director and producers convinced him to play the role. -- Robert Downey Jr. kept hiding food everywhere on set and would pull it out during filming. One scene in particular where Tony Stark offers Bruce Banner some blueberries, that entire part of the scene was improvised with the hidden snacks. -- The scene where Thor hangs his hammer on a coat hook was improvised by actor Chris Hemsworth. -- In Guardians of the Galaxy, director James Gunn has stated that the Milano, Peter Quill's ship, was named after Quill's childhood crush, Alyssa Milano. -- The dog dressed in the cosmonaut's uniform that Rocket snarls at is Cosmo, a Russian dog with psychic super powers. In the comics, he's constantly at odds with Rocket, so the snarl is more of a homage to the source material.
They call soccer the beautiful game, but FIFA has for years been an ever-growing stain upon its majesty. Close followers of the sport have long considered FIFA rotten. But Wednesday's big news break that led home pages of websites around the world has now illuminated the organization's rotten core for casual fans and people who typically pay no mind to sports at all. In other words, FIFA is — finally, finally — beginning to get some of the comeuppance it deserves. FIFA's slogan, "For the Game. For the World," has long been a bitterly ironic joke among soccer aficionados. FIFA has long since besmirched the game itself. As a result, the organization has contributed to making life worse for everyday humans in far corners of the world. U.S. law enforcement also said that Wednesday's hotel raid in Zurich is just the start, too.
Apple is working on turning Siri into a full-blown Google Now competitor. The company is working on a new iOS initiative codenamed "Proactive," Proactive will reportedly combine Siri, Contacts, Passbook, Calendar and third-party apps to provide users with timely, predictive data based on what they're doing in their daily lives. Apple already pulls from these data sources to aggregate search data for Spotlight, so using the same sources for more contextual information makes sense. The company already provides some of that guidance on its Today screen in iOS 8, showing users how long it would take to get to an appointment or to work.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter called on Wednesday for a halt to island-building by all parties in the South China Sea. He urged an abrupt end to militarization over the dispute by many South Pacific nation states, saying the United States would be the principle security power in the region for decades to come. Carter, at a change of command ceremony at the U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii, also said the U.S. military's airplanes and warships would continue to operate in the region wherever permitted under international law.
