    Didn't Bucky Beaver pitch Gardol?? I can definitely see Gardol as a product right out of one of Don Draper's creative meetings.

    "It guards you from...ALL. Communists, John Birchers, hippies and Negro riots. Gardol won't allow you to come to any harm. And it contains something precious and personal...a doll!"

    Yeah, back in the days when something was hurled at you in an ad, there better be real barriers. No CGIs!

    I hate admit this, but I remembered this Gardol commercial:

    Yay! That means they have to start taking this seriously and craft a 2nd and 3rd act that won't bore us to death and drive us away. I guess it also means that dome isn't going anywhere soon. One other thing it means, is that the writers can concentrate on writing and not looking for other jobs.


    So Gardol was probably.....fluoride?

    All BS then and all BS still today. Not that fluoride isn't effective, it is. But I spent some time in the toothpaste aisle the other day; according to the hype printed on the containers and boxes, there are about half a dozen wonderful things that various toothpastes can do in various combinations. But if you read the ingredients there are only 3 things in them, only 1 or 2 in most. Most prevalent is fluoride, second is some other ingredient that doesn't seem to do much according to the internet, and least prevalent is that stuff that dulls the sensitivity of sensitive teeth. Some companies <ahem! Colgate ahem!> have 8 or 9 different toothpastes out that all do different things, which is hard to swallow (no pun) since they all have exactly the same ingredients in them. But if you believed what they say on the box toothpaste can cure cancer. It can whiten, prevent tartar, prevent gum disease, prevent cavities, and two or three other amazing things; even the ones that really only contain fluoride.

    Whoever could forsee it could not only stop coconuts from hitting a guy, but could envelop an entire town and be impervious to gunfire, huge bombs and Lord knows what else.

    I am betting they'll find that mayonnaise will dissolve the barrier..... next year!

    I bailed on it. Found I had 4 episodes built up and no desire to catch up on them.

    I never watched it until my Mother came over one day and asked if she could watch a few episodes on NetFlix that she had missed and I was like sure you can. Well I became hooked right away, it's a brilliant show once again from the BBC. I watched all 3 seasons in a 2 week span from NetFlix and PBS VOD. Try it out

    Sure will, schooler. My late father-in-law came to visit one year and asked if he could watch Judge Judy. Well, it took me two years to shake free of her. :grin:
