    Red Green

    Has anybody seen the Red Green show recently? Is it still on? Many good chuckles!

    It still plays here. I really enjoy it. "The Man's Prayer" is something I recite from time to time. Red's advice to middle aged guys unfortunately rings more and more true to me with every passing day.

    I get a kick out of Graham Greene's character - the world's worst explosives guy. I like how his gloves are usually smoking.

    Keep your stick on the ice!

    Just in case you did not know the Man's Prayer, here it is -

    "I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess."

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Not to mention you can learn about more uses of the "handymans secret weapon" (duct tape) in 30 minutes watching that show than you ever thought possible!

    I can still see it here. I have no idea if they are new shows or not.

    Edit: Yes on PBS

    I remember watching this a few years back. I think they stopped making new episodes a few years ago. If I remember it correctly we watched it on Canadian TV (I'm from Buffalo). Not sure what it played on in the rest of the country.

    It's on late nights on the Denver PBS station. I recall my dad watching a lot when he would get off of work late.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    My wife and I are actually big Red Green fans. We record it on the local pbs every Sunday night.

    I enjoy the Possum Lodge word game.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    we get it up here. I like it but it's not something I watch if there is anything more interesting/funny on.
