RIP Chuck Barris

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

RIP Chuck Barris

He produced many great shows, but was best known for The Gong Show. I always loved Gene Gene The Dancin' Machine, The Unknown Comic and, of course, Chuck himself, who looked and acted like he was so stoned his eyes needed toothpicks:) Ah the 1970s, what a time to be alive!

He was a true genius. Created "The Dating Game," ''The Newlywed Game" and "The Gong Show". But all that was just a cover for his CIA work: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=65659
