Rhoda?? Come on. May as well include Miss Hathaway.Amen! Hell, the only difference between Rhoda and a bowling ball is that if your life depended on it, you could always eat a bowling ball. And besides, something tells me that underneath Jane Hathaway's goofy "Olive Oyl" exterior, there was a mischevious (and "willing") dark side to "Sweet Jane." For example, she definitely carried some serious freak-lust for Jethro Bodine; I could see 'the Jane' in a leather teddy holding a whip with a naked, choke-collared Jethro-as-dog humbly licking her boot heels.....er, just my 2 cents....rotfl...

Rhoda vs. for example, a "shocked" (with-eyes-blazing) Morticia Addams' (Carolyn Jones) sexy wiggling in that impossibly snug black-widow dress? Or Rhoda vs. a bare-midriffed "Jeannie" (Barbara Eden)?

Rhoda? What the hell was someone thinking? Rhoda?!! That is SO wrong. (puking smilie)

Mary Ann, hands down. Built like one very solid brick ****house.

Rhoda shouldn't even on the list, unless you're giving her extra points for being a spunky gal.

Now going into "heycal" starchaser/name dropper mode:

Funny thing: a few years back, while I was noshing in a New York eatery, I happened to notice Valerie Harper and some gentleman (Husband? Dramatic co-star?) eating at the next table. Val (I figure this experience made us pretty...you know...tight, so I can refer to her like that...) was starring in an Off-Broadway play across the street.

I thought, "Gee." and didn't think anything more of it. A few minutes later, I was bumped (and it was a fairly hard bump!) from behind in my seat. I looked up and there she was- Rhoda, somehow, knocking into my chair on her way out. She was gracious enough and said "Excuse me." and I smiled. Now, had it been Dawn Wells (Mary Ann), I may have tried to make some time with her!

NB - Though I must say...if the poll had included LAURA PETRY (i.e. Mary Tyler Moore's [a.k.a. "Mary Richards] earlier role in the "Dick Van D/Y/K/E Show"), then I would have gone with her by just a FRACTION over Mary Ann...;-)

Dedans Penthouse
01-16-2009, 09:43 AM
LAURA PETRY for the win! She projected "innocent sex kitten" as Laura vs. that almost sexless (and annoyingly wrapped-too-tight) Mary Richards character. I never really watched that show because Lou Grant--though portrayed as some "salt of the earth" unpretentious regular guy--was an over-bearing, postering, know-it-all blowhard. Then there was that 24-carat phony Gavin MacLeod (the "Love Boat" captain) who tried to come off as a good-guy "80's Alan Alda sensitive-male-nice-guy friend" to Mary, but was an obsequious Lou Grant boot-licking phony who took any opportunity to go the company route when it came to "piling on" the one and only funny dude on the show: Ted Knight. What a transparent piece of shiate that Gavin MacLeod character was.

Summary: had I voted on this (NOT) Ultimate Man Question, I'd have 'polled' my vote for the crack-of-Dawn:

Dawn Wells.

Perky yet sturdily "built-to-breed" head-board-banging material. As for what the sexual landscape on Gilligan's Island might've entailed during their many years there, I have to think the Professor would've been heavily involved in a menage a trois with Maryanne & Ginger (pretty obvious), and that Thurston Howell III would've been dropping $10,000-per-shot I.O.U.'s to the ambitious Ginger on the sneak, that "Lovie" (Howell's wife) had Gilligan as her boy toy on the sneak as well (all the while filing her nails whenever they were in full congress: "slower Gilligan you silly boy!...slower!..."), that Maryanne & Ginger--for a change of pace--would "slip off" in order to be alone from time to time.....sigh.....and as for the the fat-but-still-needy Skipper, that he either took advantage of Maryanne's good nature in trying to lay some "a man has needs!" guilt trip on her, or he got the Professor to concoct some 'Love Potion #9' elixir that would send the dim-witted Gilligan into a temporary stupor, allowing the Skipper to cornhole him without Gilligan having any recollection of it afterwards, save for a suddenly confused and incontinent Bob Denver waddling about like a bow-legged duck for an hour or so once he came to. Lucky thing some of us can take this sophomoric thread out of the gutter and treat it with the sophisticated analysis it deserves, eh?

How did Lou Grant become a serious spinoff from Mary?

Dedans Penthouse
01-16-2009, 11:17 AM
How did Lou Grant become a serious spinoff from Mary?Some people viewed his character as strong enough to stand on its own. It did pull in good ratings. Asner always crabbed (maybe with a good reason) that his "Lou Grant" show was not renewed because of his political views, including his fund-raising efforts on behalf of rebels in El Salvador. His problem was that he too often exploited his "Lou Grant" public personna for left-wing causes much like Charleton Heston exploited his for right-wing causes. Politics aside, as with Heston, I think Asner does comes off very much as a self-regarding blowhard. my 2 cents...

No doubt Mary is a lot easier on the eyes than Rhoda, I mean a LOT easier. However, Mary was pretty neurotic which is not often good from a a-hem "practical", standpoint. So I could see where Rhoda would get some serious votes. Mary Ann was shorter, perkier and more energetic than Ginger, and probably more flexible as well. For all of her bluster my guess is it would have taken some effort to get Ginger's candle lit, however once accomplished it is unclear whether the final result would beat out Mary Ann, I would like to think so.

Yep, figures that I have an eye for intrinsic and natural beauty over the tarted-up, manufactured varient represented by Ginger. She reminds me of the chick who Phil Spector shot in the head. And no serious judge of female pulchritude would even include Rhoda in such a discussion.

Of course, I'd DO 'EM all if the opportunity presented itself...but I don't care for the marketed "beautiy" of Sharapova type. Get her without six pounds of make-up on her kisser and she's not much better looking than the cleaning woman in my office building (who's in her late 50's, I'd guess).

We see Sharapova with virtually no make-up all the time, and she's a hottie, plain and simple. And if you can't recognize Rhoda's raw sexuality, you might as well formally switch over to the other team and cast a vote for Ted Baxter or even Gordie the weatherman.

I agree that it's Rhoda v. Mary Richards, or Ginger v. Mary Ann at the basic level. But we're talking about the specific characteristics of Mary Ann and Rhoda at the moment, and as such, are allowed by the Geneva convention to discuss the two in the same breath. (But sorry, Mary Ann does not trump Ginger for real men.)

Let me blunt. Rhoda is probably a live wire in the sack, while Mary Ann may be a vanilla bore. But look, Mary Ann is definitely pretty, and I would choose Mary Ann over Rhoda myself in a heartbeat. I'm just saying Rhoda has her own thing going on, and may give Mary Richards a run for her money in that head to head match up. And never discount Phyllis, who has a great cougar thing working.

Ginger is a washed-up hag. Do you not SEE who she's modeled after? C'mon, Mr. Hollywood...it's pretty obvious. Also, she actually looks like a drag queen. Mary Ann didn't schlepp seven trunks of clothes and make-up on a THREE HOUR CRUISE, now did she? No siree, our perky corn-fed beauty needed no artificial paint to bring out HER highlights!

I SAID previously that Rhoda's probably a screamer in bed (obviously "live wire" in heycal lingo), but you just don't know. Rhoda lives in frickin' Minneapolis...why? Why would she go THERE? Something in her past chasing her? A lot of baggage there, if you ask me. And Rhoda was taking prozac even before it was invented. I know the type.

Phyllis is also a screamer...I was pretty sure of that from the getgo. A great "mentor" for a young elementary school lad, like myself (at the time). Of course you gotta realize that she was around 67 years old when the show aired in prime time...that's a lot of experience.

Mary Ann? Have you actually SEEN the G's I. "bikini" episodes? If you HAD, you'd be eating your words, brudda. She's got childbearing hips and the will to make 'em work for her. Don't let the quiet, well-bred Mid w e s t manners fool you. Behind closed doors she's an animal.

heycal: couger-delights aside, you'd do someone who brings Nancy Pelosi to mind? (at bottom of pix) :
http://jyanet.com/mtm/mr8.jpg

The hyper-active psycho loquacity of Rhoda's "blabbermouth-as-character" schstick wears thin quickly and isn't exactly suggestive of a "nuanced" mantrap babe imho. But then again, what do I know? As every good transvestite on Broadway knows, Dedans has a noted "pashawn" for Barbara Streisand/Judy Garland/Diana Ross type impersonators. Yum! :-)

Phil previously suggested, "Rhoda-Rooter" may indeed be a screamer on 'the Temperpedic workbench' and yes, her cat-in-heat wailing could probably serve as mental RX for some "fragile male ego" types out there, but really!........... I mean, after the "damn the torpedos--full steam ahead!" caveman-style romp concludes, you actually DO have to talk to these psychos come the intermezzo afterglow. Put it this way: after intermezzo, "Rounds 2, 3...and so on" would have to serve more as a buffer against hopelessly attempting to regale that caterwauling, vibe-less psychotic with, for example, some suggestively romantic pillow-talk.

Rhoda will mentally implode ya....forget her sass, take a pass.

Even anxiety-ridden Mary Richards (with about 3 belts of cognac under her garter belt) would be a much better option. Here's something else to consider about Rhoda-Rooter: remember that Lou Grant kiss-up character Murray? Well, Murray in all his smarmy vacuousness viewed Rhoda as a spunky breath of fresh air...and we knew what a transparant fraud he was. I mean, would a guy like Murray be all about "the hang" in your guy-circle-of-activities? (i.e. would you 'hang' and include that smug, self-righteous lil' twerp in your guy circle of friends?....I didn't think so and that should tell you something).

Rhoda?

Ron Swoboda would be a 'better catch'! ....... heycal, I'm surprised at you ..... :-) :?:

Gentlemen, you seriously understimate Rhoda's appeal while at the same time over estimating my regard for her. I voted for Mary Richards in that head to head match-up, and would take Ginger or Mary Ann over her as well, leaving her as my last choice among these four women, and I'd take Phyllis over her as well if she were in the running.

Nonetheless, they are all fine babes, and Rhoda ain't nothing to sneeze at. I'd take her in a second over Georgette, her sister Brenda, Su Anne, or Mrs. Roper, were she somehow to become involved in this.

Man, I love the amount of hatred you have for Murray. Probably my favorite part of this thread. I hadn't thought much about him before one way or another, but clearly he deserves closer inspection.

Well there is a fair comparison - a pin up picture of forty-five years ago versus the worst possible recent pic available on the net. For a realistic view:

OMG! They have both aged in the last fifty years...you don't say! I would say the second has come out looking the most human. I think the doctor left a rag or something in the cheek of the first during the last surgery.

Exactly. That's was the point. Any dullard could have pulled up recent bad pictures of the gals in question for a fair and balanced comparison, but what fun would that be?

Tina looked pretty smoking in that shot, huh? I'll comb my stack of 1963 Playboy's to see if I can find any more.

There should be FOUR pictures. However some time after I submitted this post, I could only see the 2nd picture using Firefox. When viewing the page using Google Chrome, I can see all 4 pix.

If I open the page using IE, I'll see the 2nd picture, but I'll also see 3 boxes with red X's for the other 3 pictures. For those 3 boxes the image properties can still be seen. Coincidently, I also have links associated with those 3 pictures -- these links still work even tho' the pictures themselves do not appear in the original post. (Note that the links for the 1st & 3rd pictures are identical to the picture itself. The link for the 4th pictures opens up another picture).

Does anyone know why I can see all 4 pictures with Google Chrome but can only see 1 picture with Firefox? Is there something about my Firefox settings that might be causing this? I noticed that quite a lot of other pictures are also missing when using Firefox.
