New poll

Posted by: Hammer / 1:01 PM

Yeah, I watched some VH1 this weekend. New poll on the right.


I went with Imagine even tho the turkey bit is the single most famous line in the show's history. I haven't seen the episode since it first aired and it no doubt doesn't hold up as well as I remember it but at the time that was very moving. The part that stuck with me was Mr. Carlson finally coming around after the Red Wigglers guy pulls his ads. Carlson consoles his old friend saying, "People who listen to rock and roll, they don't really buy a lot of worms" and then goes to confront the reverend telling him "If this whole thing has accomplished anything other than making an old man feel like a coward I'll be damned if I know what it is." Way to go Arthur! He doesn't know from free speech but he knows when something is just wrong. A lot of "better" shows have addressed the issue a lot less effectively.

I haven't seen Imagine in years, but it's stuck with me, too. My favorite part is, of course, when Arthur reads the lyrics of Imagine to the reverend, who objects because the song says "imagine there's no heaven". The reverend claims to represent many people, but Arthur points out that the decision on Imagine was made by one man.
