yakmans_dad: I always loved the Honeymooners apartment. The window looked out on an air shaft. There was a cloth covering the space below the kitchen sink. 2 1/2 rooms. It looked reasonable that a bus driver lived there.


This is why I could never watch that show.  God that apartment was depressing.  I don't Know why Alice didn't get a job.  I wouldn't be able to hang around that dreary place all day long.

mcreadyblue: Fiero, LOL!


Can you explain your humor or disdain (I can't tell which one you are exhibiting)? Is there a problem with the Fiero?

Dr Jack Badofsky: Those are actually neat little cars! Stereo speakers in the headrests, they weren't bad on gas, the GTs were sporty little things (for a "commuter car"), and they looked good (the later ones moreso). I'd love to own a 2M6 or a GT with a stick shift.


Mine's an '86 GT, with a '95 Camaro engine (3.4 Liter V-6) and a 4-speed automatic transmission out of a '93 Bonneville. I need to raise it back up some because the previous owner lowered it too much. But it'll pass anything except a gas station...

Nix Nightbird: AT BEST in today's dollars, a minimum wage shoe salesman would make $1176 a month. In 1988, he would have made more like $800 per month at minimum wage


Married With Children was comically unrealistic, even by sitcom standards. Al being a shoe salesman was more of a running joke than something to be analyzed for realism.

Mugato: bungle_jr: n real life, i have no idea what his house is like, but i do know he has a car collection

Real life Jerry has an internet show where he talks to other comics as they drive around. One episode he picked the guest up in a DeLorean. It broke down during the interview so he used his other one. I don't know if that was a bit or real but just the idea of having one DeLorean is pretty cool.


Those aren't his cars he's driving on CiCGC.

THIS


Also: No one else in the Full House household paid for rent?!?

Also This.  I thought that's why there was two 'uncles' living there with them, to help cover the rent/mortgage

Jessie was the girls' biological uncle.  Joey was Danny's wacky best friend.  They moved in with Danny after his wife was killed by a drunk driver, to help raise the girls.

Funny that the three of them are RL BFFs.  http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1wifo2/john_stamos_dave_coulier _ and_bob_saget_here_the/


Right, I was just saying that the chart should have shown combined income from the three adults in the house(and then 4 once Jessie's wife/GF whatever moved in), not just Saget's income, for showing how un-affordable it was.

The customers just leave the cash on the bedside table, right?

Mikey1969: clkeagle: Yeah, Friends was an odd choice for the article. They mentioned the big apartment being rent controlled several times per season, and Chandler said a few times that he could easily afford to live alone.

I'm also not convinced the Bundy house was nearly as large as TFA suggests. Perspective on the sound stage made the living room and kitchen look big, but the dialog always suggested otherwise. The upstairs bedrooms all seemed to be pretty small. I never imagined it to be more than 1100 sq ft or so.

Well, I can tell you from first hand experience that two people just can't sleep in Kelly Bundy's twin bed...


Dont forget they had 3 bathrooms too. One in Peg and Als room, one in the hall for the kids and the one Al built in the garage.

Has San Fran always been *that* expensive, even pre-tech industry.

Also, in Full House he has 2 other adults living there who are probably paying token rent or with free babysitting, it isn't mentioned in the graph.

Considering his wife died, he could have paid off the house with her life insurance.

peacheslatour: The Brady Bunch was all kinds of messed up.  Architect living in a poorly designed home, stay at home mom with a live-in maid, kids sharing bedrooms in said poorly designed home.  If they couldn't afford a bigger home, maybe they could lose the maid and Mrs. Brady could do her own damn cooking.


I don't even feel like the paid Alice.  She was like 24/7 slave labor.  They sometimes acted like she was part of the family, but she had to wear a uniform, was constantly catering to their every whim, and what the hell did Carol Brady do all day, considering she didn't work?

I have a broken wrist and can't safely drive, and even I can clean my apartment with my (non-dominant) left hand.

Gary-L: BizarreMan: phalamir: Mr. Coffee Nerves: I still want to know why three surgeons/officers had to share a single tent on M*A*S*H* while Klinger got an entire tent to himself for his wardrobe.

Why did two jag-offs and a complete twat, who between the three of them could give everyone in the camp a compelling reason under the UMCJ to slowly torture them unto death, but the guy who ran the office where all the logistical paperwork originated got his own tent?  Nope, can't think of a single reason.

To make matters more interesting you've got to take into consideration the changes in jobs for Klinger.

If you recall, Radar lived in his office or at least he slept there and Klinger was just a lowly corpsman with his own tent.  I think when Klinger got the promotion to company clerk he moved into the office, giving up his own tent.

Either way, Klinger was enlisted and as such should have been bunking with two or three other people.


Maybe Klinger hustled a requisition for a pare tent from the Army and just put it up? Kinda makes sense.

My personal theory is that when they were handing out tent assignments, somebody realized they could put the complete shiats in one tent.  This then left extra tent spaces in the camp, and Klinger just came out on top with his own tent.  Kinda like how sometimes you can score a dorm room without a roommate due to planning snafus

Yup. While they move in together for reasons of economy and a good address, in the books, they're pretty much set from "A Scandal in Bohemia" on, as the king pays Sherlock handsomely. Later on, when Watson comes back to work on cases, he says that he can leave his practice on Harley St for days at a time.

In the new Sherlock series, the explanation is that Mrs Hudson is willing to rent to the two of them at well below market rate because Sherlock got her husband convicted and executed in Florida. Also, Baker St is less desirable as a place to live than it was a century ago.

I just looked (because I was curious) and a 2 br baker street apartment can go for 1 1/2 million pounds. Less desirable? Who knows. But crazy expensive.

That sound about right.  Everything within the London ring road is amazingly expensive.  From what I've seen trolling Google Street View, it's mostly commercial these days (the site of 221b, if it existed is a large office building, though I think the pub across the street has claimed the address).  They actually shoot the show on what's considered the "run down" section of Baker St.

bungle_jr: about the deloreans...delorean.com has many used for sale...most have "$inquire" on the price line, but there are prices from about $31k thru about $54k listed. you can get a "brand new" one, made from never-before-used parts, for something like $75k. so, delorean...not exactly like buying a rolls or bentley

Yeah, I didn't say they were but someone mentioned that he collects cars and I thought that was kind of cool.

/must be hard to get parts for though


It's not as bad as you might think. Here is the episode of Wheeler Dealers where Mike visits the parts warehouse.

That episode was about refurbing a DMC-12. Interesting stuff.

Awesome, someone actually referencing Wheeler Dealers. Really only one of the only Car Refurbish/Repair shows I really enjoy. No ginned up family drama. Just Ed giving a brief overview of how these things are done and he manages to make it interesting without looking like a total jackass like every other show on Discovery or Speed. Its one of the very few shows I miss since moving to streaming only.

In most adaptations Sherlock is independently wealthy.

Seacop: Mugato: scottydoesntknow: Monica and Rachel's apartment in Friends was rent-controlled (sublet from her grandmother). Their rent was a fark-ton lower than the $5,000 estimate.

I thought this was going to be the Boobies.

If they were going to do Friends they should have done Chandler and Joey's apartment. It's not as big as the girls' but it's still in a decent part of Manhattan. I don't know what Chandler did but Joey was an out of work actor wasn't he?

And how could they have any Idea how much Seinfeld made?

Chandler is a Transponster

Semper IvXx: Also, of all the stupid things to talk about, this is right up there. The living spaces aren't realistic because...wait for it...they're filming a TV show on a sound stage! They aren't real places with real rent, they're, as they say, enlarged to show detail and to make it possible to film.

Oddly enough they don't make many shows about people to poor to have someplace to live.


When I was little, I thought the Ricardos must be really poor because they lived in such a small place with a tiny kitchen. Then I grew up and found out about rents in the the Village. Even back then, that was a huge apartment for anyone who wasn't stinking rich. Of course, the Honeymooners apartment was my idea of a hovel.

Yeah. SF was a major financial center long before the tech boom. I remember the papers doing articles on the most expensive cities to live in when I was a kid, and SF was always at or near the top. It was the only one on that list that also routinely made the nicest places to live lists, if memory serves.

Slight correction: they're shooting on Gower St, which is about a mile away from Baker St, and the areas around train stations are almost always a bit run down in Europe.

The north end of Baker St, which is where 221 would be is right near Regent Park, which justifies the high prices.

I've been watching Wheeler Dealers since they started airing it in the states. If you like the lack of artificial drama in Wheeler Dealers, you'd probably also like Powerblock on Spike TV. It's 4 30-minute shows (with various specialties (off-road, American muscle cars, trucks, etc), and NO DRAMA. Just informative how-to stuff. I get it here in Vegas on Sunday mornings (9:00am-11:00am) on Spike TV, but you can probably find them on Netflix, or Hulu or something...

Lots of episodes available on Youtube. :-)

I really like the show precisely for the reason you mentioned: no drama-conflict foolishness. Mike has a sales-y vibe but it's not annoying, and Edd explains the repairs quite clearly. It's a collaborative environment and they work on some nifty cars (like the Isetta). Good stuff.

The "working for free" joke was mentioned in the Brady Bunch movie. Alice apparently worked for room and board. She had a very nice place to live, a family to care for, a TV, a groovy record player, her own bathroom (allegedly) and plenty of free food because it was on the Brady budget for a family of 8-10 people (depending what season it was).

She was also "part of the family" and went with them on vacations. When was the last time you heard of any middle-class family bringing their maid on vacation with them?

1935.

The show, which was set in the 1970s was really about an upper-middle class family before WWII.  Look at houses and apartments build in the suburbs between WWI and WWII and you'll see a maids room off the kitchen.  This was really scaling down, as before WWI the same family would have had three or four servants.

Mikey1969: Trainspotr: Next, someone should figure out how the interior of the Brady house would ever fit inside the exterior shot.

I read a great article a few years back about how for an architect, Mike Brady had designed a shiatty house...


As an Architect, (a) we don't get paid enough to afford to build a house for ourselves and (b) we'd never be happy with what we come up with, and would not bother building anything.


on the flip side:

Ted Mosby only pulling in $4,900 a month in Manhattan? He's getting boned. Our salaries are lagging, but a 30-ish architect should be making more in this city.  If that is his salary based on his time as a professor, that might be closer to reality if he is only an adjunct/non-tenured.

2014-04-28 07:00:24 PM

serpent_sky: No building in NYC has a huge, gorgeous spread out apartment like the girls and then that little dingy one across the hall.


But it happens.

One way it could be is that the girls apartment is at a building setback and its a 'pethouse' floor while the boys side continues higher.

Another might be that the boys apartment was once part of a bigger apartment that got sub-divided into smaller units, and they have one of them ((the other side being in the foreground of the hall we never see, at/behind the camera).

You also get developers who build mixed-floors, and are programmed for matching % marketshare of current trends (70% 2BR, 20% 1BR, 10% studio, for example).

Yet still, you get some conditions in some really old buildings were large apartments had 'maid quarters' that were adjacent, but times change and nobody keeps live-ins anymore, so that unit gets rented out separately.

There are some wacky-ass floor plans in this city, especially in older buildings.

The thing that has always mystified me about being an architect is where do you start? Do the elevations get done before the foundation?

I could totally get into studying architecture though I love cool buildings and Art Deco is one of my favorite things in the world..

How did Beavis and Butthead have a house, much less a TV with cable? I suppose you could reason that they are squatters, or the house belongs to one of their mothers who may be in prison and has the bills on auto pay from an account that's receiving welfare deposits or something. How come DCF never bothered to step in to do anything about two teenagers living alone in a house together?

Your clever circley infographic sucks and is hard to read.

I know you think bar graphs are "boring" because they can be made with Excel instead of Illustrator, but we still use them 200 years after they were invented because they're farking GOOD.

luidprand: You know, that always bothered me, until I found out that New York is the most racially segregated city in America.


May be true, but even New Yorkers who live in one racial enclave have to travel through or to other enclaves regularly.  My subway commute traverses Brooklyn Chinatown, Yuppie Slope, The Mall White People Used To Go To, Manhattan Chinatown, NYUville, and Gaytown every day.

I guess I can't complain when the "2 Broke Girls" approach to diversity seems to be the other option, wherein almost everyone non-white is a shallow racial stereotype.

your train makes a loop and hits Chinatown twice?

Bruce Wayne inherited Wayne Manor and probably has deferred property taxes because of all the charity stuff he does in Gotham City, including hosting glad-handed fundraisers for candidates for municipal, state, and federal governments, as well as the police. The house is probably also on the New Jersey state register of historic places, so the state is basically paying him to live there.

Rich people...sheesh...
