In this day of computerized phone calls and everything done by computer. (including this post) there are a lot of reasons this episode will never grow old.

The technology though, yes. My how things have changed. Very Happy

Yes, I agree that this episode doesn't really grow old. But the response to tech issues sure has changed hasn't it? Laurie picketing the Department store with a brunch of 'professional' picketers is so funny and impossible to imagine now. Think about picketing Macy's or the Gap because of mis-charges on a credit card. It shows how passive we have become doesn't it, when a little tiny sit-com takes on matters of moral responsibility? Funny too, that 'dummy' Keith is smart enough to figure out how to program the computer using the stolen manual, and he figures it out in about a minute! That certainly wouldn't fly now, as we all know how helpful computer manuals actually are! And none of us are as feather headed as our dear Keith. Confused Laughing

You really think it's impossible to imagine that people would take the time to picket a department store? Check out this YouTube clip with people picketing at Target:

The first time I saw this episode, just a couple of years ago, I was struck by how current it seems. Yes, the hardware is much different back then, but the fact that they were using computers and promoting it as being more efficient is something that I didn't realize was around necessarily in the early 70s. I knew computers were around but I thought they were more for the academic setting and not so much in the mainstream business world. Of course the one thing that doesn't not match up with today's world is how the computer prints and mails everything. Nowadays we would just get an email.

On a different note, John David Carson passed away last year at the age of 57. I tried to do a little research on it a while back and couldn't find out much, other than he seemed to have a troubled life for at least long stretches of it. I couldn't find out a cause of death, but it seemed to be possibly drug related or suicide. I don't know that for sure and could be way offbase on that.
