Episodes / A nagging head scratching question.. episode 1217
« Last post by movinginslomo on March 20, 2017, 07:10:41 PM »
In episode 1217 Mr. Rogers is visited by Andrew Wyeth. I am living on the coast of Maine near-ish the famous Olsen house and in a town with a museum with a Wyeth wing, I know my Wyeth. Now 1217 was taped in 1972, but Andrew Wyeth was much older in that time period, and the gentleman on the show looks younger and resembles Jamie Wyeth (andrew's son). Was it really Andrew or was it Jamie? The person looks way too young to be Andrew... or was it a stand-in?

Watched episodes 1485 and 1633.

1633 was interesting in the use of flash-backs with Jimmy the cat. I also enjoyed the way he makes a little girl read a Dr.Seuss book.

I watch it as a way to escape the real world. With all the hate and cynical comments and jokes there are, it's nice to watch a program that can make you feel good, and know that real effort was put into it.

Thank you for responding. Oh how I wholeheartedly agree with you. Kind of an antidote to all the cynical things and violence all over us. I believe the gentleness on this show is capable to change even adults in real life.

General Discussion / Watching the Neighborhood as an adult
« Last post by Antoinet999 on March 17, 2017, 12:48:05 PM »
Hello to everybody.

I was wondering how others in this community dealt with the fact of watching the show as an adult. I found modern films and tv so profoundly cynical and filled with constant irony and post-modern detached philosophies. Plus, the possibilities of entertainment are endless these days and everything is available easily. So why choose the neighborhood ?

Well, the calmness of the show, the tone of his voice, the gentleness of it all is very inspiring. I'm a father of 2 and Fred's way of being around people in general is extraordinary. I read a lot about him in the past months and saw that he was really this gentle outside of tv world.

Add to that the overall message of being interested in other people, genuine interest. Nothing is faked when he speaks.

I know that I'm maybe jumping into the whole Fred was a saint wagon. I don't know about that. But I know that I am 37. That watching episodes helps me as a parent and as a human being. It helps me being better, kinder and more interested.

How about you folks, why do you watch the show ?

I know Joanna is still alive. I had the chance to meet Fred's adopted sister Lanie in Latrobe last year.

It's hard to say with so little to go on, but I understand you need to maintain the privacy of your friends.

If you'd like, feel free to email me at info@neighborhoodarchive.com -- if you'd be comfortable sharing some additional details outside of this public forum, I may be able to help you narrow down which episode it is you're looking for.

Happy new year!
