Flashback Friday-The Adventures Of Pete and Pete (1992-1996)

When you’re a kid, the best television shows are sometimes the ones that are a little quirky.

Between 1992 and 1996, The Adventures Of Pete and Pete told the story of two redheaded brothers with the same name. The elder Pete (Michael C. Marona) narrates the story while his younger brother, also named Pete (Danny Tamberelli) obsesses about the perfect song.

While this show was one of the odder programs of the 1990’s Nickelodeon lineup, it was still interesting. And it was nice to red-heads of the male sex on television.

Do I recommend it? Why not, especially for old times sake.

Flashback Friday-Casablanca (1942)

War often brings out the best in us and the worst in us.

In the classic movie Casablanca (1942), Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) is an American ex-pat and a freedom fighter living in Morocco during World War II. Rick has in his possession two letters of transit, which become very valuable when the Nazis take over. The story becomes even more complicated when the leader of the underground Victor Lazslo (Paul Henreid) is being harassed by the Nazis. Accompanying Victor is  Rick’s ex who walked out on him, Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman). Rick is naturally not happy to see his ex, but he will soon learn her reasons for walking out on him. Rick and Ilsa originally plan to use the letters of transit to leave Nazi occupied Morocco, but things don’t go quite as planned.

This movie is one of the greats of American cinema for a reason. It has love lost and found, war, danger, etc. All in all, it’s pretty good.

I absolutely recommend it.
