Am I the only one here who loves Mary (and especially the combination host/Mary, which I find absolutely brilliant)?

It's her banter with the host that makes her likeable.

I prefer Earl Grey or any herbal tea at night, if I do caffeine it's coffee for me caffeine tea's just don't do the trick but herbal tea does help relax me.

If all the above fails me I resort to a good old pint of American whiskey.

I think Barry's observed the contradiction of Inner Sanctum in the past.  Although I love it, they promise preternatural horrors and unimaginable terror but most often they turn into a Scooby-Doo type mystery that explains away any supernatural sources.

Yeah, in fact I meant to post something about this but I was too involved in something else. Not long ago Jim played an Inner Sanctum where what seemed to be supernatural actually was supernatural! I was stunned becuase the lack of a twist was the twist! It really was a ghost!

Supernatural or not - the stories are still pretty good. Two of my favorite episodes would have to be Shadow of Death (might have gotten the name wrong) and Strange Passenger (which I believe is the episode Barry is referring to).

I always thought she had something going with the host....but then, I guess I would think that.  Sorry for being twisted.

She always called him Mr. Host, I think. Raymond had left the show and Paul McGrath stepped into the role. I never noticed a difference between them.

Me neither. Until I read about it I thought they were the same guy. And I know Raymond hosted some other show and I didn't it was him then either.
I'm sure one of you guys will step in with the answer to that any second now....

I didn't notice the change either and I'm sure the audience didn't as well...very similar to when Waterman took over for Peary.  (there you go...got a reference in!)

There have been times that I have had a craving for Jell-O after listening to Jack Benny, or wanting to take Bromo-Seltzer after listening to the Bromo-Seltzer train (can't remember was show that was on), or wanting to drink Roma Wines after listening to Suspense--and I'm not even a wine drinker!  :)

I suffer from those moments too. Roma Wines is the one I always meant to look up and I didn't find anythingg about them. Do they even still exist? The one that really drove me nuts was Signal Oil from the Whistler. I kept saying I bet they're out of business. I've never heard of them. Stupid me. Oil company's don't go out of business. That just doesn't happen.
I can't even think of Jell-O though. I can't even watch Billl Cosby. A long night of suffering thanks to the  Jell-O shot, and I am SO sorry for it. I've haven't touched Jell-O since. Even the smell is too much.
But I loved how on Burn and Allen they just through in a cup of Maxwell House all the time. No real commercials. Just, hey - I'm having a cup of Maxwell House. Would you like one too? That's how commercials should be.

I remember seeing an old re-run of Milton Berle (back then they did their own promoting for the sponsors

Anyway.. He lit up a camel cigarette and said ahhh that smooth blend of Turkish and domestic tobacco yada yada yada basically giving the impression that life had gotten much better the moment he lit up.

Apparently not any more.  This is what I found on a quick search:

Closest products I've seen are Roma Style Wine Cabinets for a few thousand dollars.   :o

Ha!  This one's been on my mind a lot too since I'll be staying overnight in Fresno tomorrow.  The cast I'm traveling was hoping on doing a wine tour, but I've had no more luck tracking Roma Wines down than you guys have.

I guess I'll have to stick to Camel's smooth Turkish flavor because I can't afford any Roma Style wine. I suppose I'll just stick with those cheesy big ole boxes of wine in stores now.  :-\

Except for the singing - Peary was much better, although I must say eventually I probably liked Waterman better in the role...
