Merry Christmas

Season's greetings to everyone. This is my 17th Christmas Day edition! The college kids who used to read my page back in 1995 are now in their middle to late 30s. Crazy. Whoda thunk it?

Annual "Best Nude Scenes" Poll

The list is ready to go, but I keep hoping that we'll see Carey Mulligan in Shame and Rooney Mara in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo before the voting begins, so I'm delaying the kick-off.

(Especially true after I saw The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in a theater yesterday.)

  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Seasons greetings from this side of the Pacific.

The Love Boat

The Love Boat ran for about 10 years, from 1977 to 1987. There was no nudity but pokies and cleavage were in abundance. For those who came in late, each episode usually consists of three stories. Two-part episodes sometimes consisted of four or five stories. The characters and The Love Boat's crew generally work within one of those stories.

These collages cover the second half of the fourth season and were first screened in 1981.

Scoop's notes:
 Cindee is much more attractive than her dad, Crabby:

You are able to enjoy today's Christmas dinner and other holiday activities today and around the world because Tom Terrific was able to defeat Crabby, thus restoring all the holidays to the calendar. If you don't remember what I'm talking about, you can check it out here. (It was a recurring cartoon shown exclusively on Captain Kangaroo in the mid and late 1950s.)

Notes and collages

"Two and a Half Men"

Kelly Stables in season six (episode 4)


Full body nudity from Sigrid ten Napel in Vast (2011; Netherlands) in 720p

Catherine Bell in something called Good Morning Killer, a TV movie which aired about two weeks ago. She isn't naked, but she's in bathing suits and bikini underwear, and she's Catherine Bell, dammit.

The women of The Pool Boys (2010) in 720p

AJ Alexander

Jennifer Walcott

Simona Fusco

Ida Marie Bakkerud in Lies Inc (2004), a bizarre no-budget Scandinavian sci-fi movie in which the actors all speak English with thick Scandinavian accents.

Two from Dirty Harry (1971) in 1080p

Debralee Scott. Who remembers her as Rosalie "Hotsie" Totzi in "Welcome Back, Kotter"? She died in her sleep at age 52. She had recently recovered from a coma and was thought to be OK, but three days after being released from the hospital she went to take a nap, and never woke up. Doctors could never really figure out exactly what had happened.

Lois Foraker


Amy Madigan in Carnivale
