Whatever happened to…?

September 17, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

We are a TV generation that treated TV personalities almost like family. Each week, we would invite them into our homes, usually over dinner and then one day, they are gone.

They never call, or write. Sometimes if we are lucky, we catch them on re-runs on late night television, or maybe see them in something new. But where are Oscar and Felix? Dick Petrie? Where is Hawkeye in this tumultuous world? I bet he would have warm words of comfort for us all.

Like family, we tend to put a lot of faith into these characters, because want them to be real. We want them to be the people that never had in real life. Remember Donna Reed? Dads listened to their sons about the Little League game and Mrs Brady always listened to Jan…

As a unit of one, it is terrifying to be alone even when we really aren’t.
