Dinosaurs: The Making of TV?s Saddest, Strangest Sitcom Finale

quote [ The show was called Dinosaurs, and it was essentially an inverse of The Flintstones. A sitcom set in prehistoric times, it followed a family of dinosaurs that used technology, got married, had kids, and went to work, all while humans lingered around as stupid creatures worthy of ridicule. But in its finale, the show?s creators twisted that premise to give a grave warning: Driven by ignorance and greed, the dinosaurs accidentally spark an Ice Age that causes worldwide extinction. ]

I have vague memories of liking this show.

"Let?s get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman.? When Howard pointed out that Julia Roberts was black, the exec responded: ?That was so long ago. No one will know that.? ]

It's probably how Jesus feels every time he sees the blue-eyed, blonde, aryan rendition of himself.
