  1. Debbie Downer here but I couldn't really get into it. The laugh track added was distracting and annoying, IMHO. Sure would have been cool if they'd actually got Carole to reprise her supporting "toaster lady" role! 😬😨😁
  2. In "Quarantine" "Lucy and Viv Install a Shower" "Lucy and Viv Install a TV Antenna" "Lucy and Viv Install a Stoplight in the Living Room" (JK...just seeing if you're paying attention ) "Lucy's Substitute Secretary" "Viv Visits Lucy"
  3. "I could practically smell the Axe Body Spray" 😇 Thanks for giving me a much needed laugh today! You're funny!
  4. Sooooo looking forward to this! Just noticed Megan (Karen) as Lucy has a martini in her hand!!
  5. Friday Nite with A Disc(o) (late) Season 2: #26 The Ricardos Change Apartments #27 Lucy Is Matchmaker #28 Lucy Wants New Furniture #29 Camping Trip #30 Ricky & Fred Are TV Fans #31 Never Do Business With Friends
  6. Right?? Sure would like to know what went down re: their falling out....puts kind of a bad "aftertaste" to the show going off... hope this wasn't the reason why!
  7. Agreed, it didn't start with "Danny" but I guess it bugs me since it's one of my favorite episodes and probably part of the reason I rarely watch "Mexico" as, among its other faults, the harshness with which they speak to each other is palpable and frankly, hard to watch.
  8. Rue, who plays Middleditch's ex-wife in this, co-starred with Reba and Lily Tomlin in the underrated "Malibu Country", which I (coincidentally) I also went to the pilot taping of that as well (gawd that was a looooooooong one!). Show was good, should have had as long a run as her predecessor IMHO but for some reason it just didn't "fly" ... and I wasn't in LA at the time but I heard about the Burnett pilot (produced by Amy Poehler) and told my "Gab guys" (Here's Lucy DVD producers) friends about it and they went and said it was good and were surprised when it didn't sell.....(although rumor hath it that what actually went down was that Carol decided at this point in her life -- she is over 80! -- she didn't want to do a weekly series...who knows?) I wholeheartedly agree about the airing of unsold pilots thing, you'd think they would want to recoup some of their $$$, especially when there's such a need of product now with all the streaming services, and cable channels... I kinda get the Chuck Lorre comment (given Two & A Half Men, etc.), yet the now-long running "Mom", which I enjoy, both Lorre and creator/writer Marco Pennette are involved did this and the script is good and the pilot was directed by sitcom vet/legend Jimmy Burrows (Cheers, Frasier, every single episode of Will & Grace -- both iterations, and many other "classics"), so with that said and an excellent cast, it has a great "pedigree" and hopefully a very good chance at going to series. I certainly hope so!
  9. I'd never heard of her (seen M&J but not sure if any with her), at least not by name but if this thing "goes", she'll undoubtedly be the breakout star, she's that good! Speaking of Broadway gals, Shelly did I tell you I got to see Joanna Gleason's show when it played here a few weeks ago?? AKA the night I got on the same elevator as Lily Tomlin and made a total fool of myself (not the first time, probably not the last!)
  10. Hey, Freddie! The pilot was shot at Warner Bros. Wednesday, March 11, 2020, right before everything really got "clamped down" or cancelled altogether; however, that same day, chatting with the audience "wrangler" folk (a couple of whom I knew from having gone to so many tapings over the years I've lived here) they weren't sure what was going to happen but that as of that date, more and more productions were cancelling either having audiences or shows or both. It was kinda "eerie" to check their website (tvtickets.com) to see what was a day or two before, shows going as usual (Dr. Phil; Raven's Home etc.) and half a dozen pilots (it's pilot season here in LA), including the one I attended. Checked the site again just a couple days later and status of EVERYTHING is "Cancelled" (http://www.audiencesunlimited.com/changes.htm). And so it goes (or actually, doesn't) ...... "Silicon Valley" star Thomas Middleditch stars as the lead in "B Positive", a CBS multi-camera comedy pilot from the "Mom" team of Marco Pennette, Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros TV. Written by Pennette, B Positive centers on Drew (Middleditch), a newly divorced dad faced with finding a kidney donor and who is at the end of his rope when he runs into Gina (Annaleigh Ashford), a rough-around-the edges woman from his high school past who volunteers her own. Together they form an unlikely bond and begin a journey that will change both of their lives. In addition to Ashford, Middleditch joins previously cast Kether Donohue and Sara Rue in what is shaping up as one of the strongest comedy pilot ensembles assembled this season. Pennette and Lorre executive produce. There's a "Lucy" connection of sorts: Recently appearing in a small role in Lorre's "Mom", actor/artist/Carole Cook & Tom Troupe documentarian (https://www.facebook.com/CaroleandTom/) Mason McCulley has essentially a cameo role in a pre-taped montage in the pilot, yet he did appear in person show night and was included in the cast bows at the end of the taping. It was nice to see him in his element and I sincerely hope that should the pilot sell and go to series (which it should, what with a wonderful cast in Middleditch, Sara Rue and someone I'd never heard of before but she "was" the show, the hilarious Annaleigh Ashford), that Mason becomes recurring as he is very funny and talented and it would nice to see him in a regular "gig". 😎 Also, "Love Boat", "Bewitched" vet Bernie Koppell also appears in a cameo role as one of the old folks being driven to hospital treatments by senior citizen's van driver Gina (Ashford).
  11. Thanks to Neil's recent post, "Lucy Makes Room for Danny" and then "Lucy Goes to Alaska". The only thing that "mars" this otherwise excellent episode of TLDCH for me ("Danny") is the severity which Desi as Ricky yells at Lucy; there's a harshness to it that feels a little bit too true to life to just ignore or laugh off as part of the "comedy"... I mean, he comes across (to me) as truly MEAN (spirited)... making me wonder, was the marriage already on its downhill slide as early as 1958? I haven't read any of the "Lucy"-related books from cover to cover in ages so I'm having difficulty recalling exactly when the transition from "lovey dovey" to not so "hotsy totsy" but his behavior toward her, in this episode at least, is palpably harsh. Oy!
  12. Shelly we'll look forward to you "modeling" your new outfits for us once they've arrived! 😇
