  1. Her Majesty -- out and about yesterday. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7899273/Looking-great-98-Beloved-Golden-Girl-Betty-White-smiles-shes-spotted-birthday.html
  2. Here's to another 96 glorious years of Glitter n'Tits. Happy Birthday, Goddess!
  3. I first saw him as the snippy bureaucrat in Grumpy Old Men and always delighted whenever he popped up again. A groundbreaker in comedy.
  4. So glad my audio came back into synch for this gorgeous Paris at Last!
  5. Last night, while watching Ricky’s European Booking, I found myself scanning the crowd of ticket holders gathered at Feldman’s. In addition to the victor, Mrs. Hazel Pierce, I think we have a late-in-the-game appearance by the MVP Pleasant Peasant girl and an early-in-the-game cameo from character actress Meg Wyllie. What are your thoughts?
  6. Interesting perspective. I was thinking about this very thing earlier today. Season Two has been my favourite TLS season for many years, the bulk of my top 10 episodes are from this season, but lately I’ve been gravitating more towards Season Three. There’s a fresher energy to this season, more or a rewatchability factor. Was it down to the change of writers? Perhaps. Can it be chalked up to an increased effort to prove TLS was more than the original writers? Maybe. Vivian wanting to go out with a bang?
  7. Crawford emerging from her TLS dressing room.
  8. That sounds about right. Don’t forget that every male star “interviewed” will have invariably propositioned the writer.
  9. His other books (and I use the term loosely) are just beyond ridiculous -- and you just know there are some individuals out there (and I'm sure we can both list a handful by name) who will take this bullshit as gospel because they want to believe.
  10. Jesus Christ... https://www.amazon.ca/Lucille-Ball-Desi-Arnaz-Ricardo/dp/1936003716/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=lucille+ball&qid=1574874382&sr=8-1
  11. That's correct. CBS has been clamping down harder in the last 10 years or so -- which baffles me because one would think they would endorse all efforts to keep one of their most reliable cash cows relevant and engaging with audiences.
  12. There are reports that Ted Mooney, Jr., himself, Michael J. Pollard, has died at 80: https://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3595146/r-p-house-1000-corpses-actor-michael-j-pollard-passed-away/
  13. Most of us have seen each episode in the Lucy canon tens -- or even hundreds of times -- but what are some of the "new" details you've noticed in recent viewings that you hadn't noticed before or, thanks to the clarity of new sources available to us, are now able to see? One mentioned recently was the vinyl material used for Curtis' tie when it ends up in the pasta maker in Life With Lucy. Perhaps I'm not observant, but I don't recall noticing until watching The Star Upstairs last night that the Robert Taylor orange, in all its legibly signed glory, is sitting on the ledge above the desk for the entire episode before Lucy has the orange in-hand at the end. I'm now curious as to whether there was a scene cut from the beginning of the episode that would have showcased the orange and its signature, perhaps Lucy taking it out of her marketing bag and putting it in a place of pride. Despite the signature on the "orange" being very different from Robert Taylor's actual signature, the handwriting is meticulous for what was otherwise bound to be a background prop.
  14. So, last night in a bout of insomnia I decided to do something productive and got up and re-read Lucy In The Afternoon for the first time since I was probably... maybe 10- or 11-years-old. Having first read it so young, it didn't really register how self-indulgent this book really is and how jarringly out-of-character some of the quotes attributed to LB -- although probably rooted in a kernel or two of fact -- really are. Now, I'm curious to re-read Lee Tannen's book as a comparison.
  15. It’s great to so clearly see Hazel running the steam table in the opening episode.
