"all they offered me were ax-murderers and lesbians" - jane wyman
said this explaining why she dropped out of acting after "the jane wyman show" ended

i got this from the most interesting site
http://www.tvtome.com/list/all.html

this links to an index of just about all tv shows that were ever created. the mind runs with that

given that the jane wyman show was a little before my time, running in various forms to approx 1963, i looked up shows that i remember watching. ones like adam-12, ghost and mrs muir, mod squad. i looked into the british drama upstairs, downstairs. my mom wouldnt let me watch that at the time so ill have to check out the episode listings now to see what that was all about...

they even list the original lyrics to "speed racer" which my older brother loved.

and there are episode guides. im going to see if they list "mothers in law" with eve arden. for some reason i loved that show when it was on though i dont know how thats possible since i was about 3 yo.. but i sure can picture it

2. oh wow... poor joan. those roles she took
to keep up the lifestyle she wanted (incl sending her kids all over the place so that they would never be around), sure took a toll

didnt she make a movie called "trog" or something like it anyway...?

7. Mothers In Law: Eve Arden and Kay Ballard. Great show!
p.s. Why do I know that? S**t... my brain is full of useless s**t.

Makes me wonder how I'm ever gonna fit the rest of my life in there.
Maybe that's what happens, eh?
Ya jes run outta space?
