  1. "Roseanne" - 2018 Revival on ABC

    Only one additional episode was ordered, so the outlook isn't exactly rosy.
  2. 2018 Christmas Colorized Episode

    No, that's The Diet. The Audition is the pilot remake, with the cellist bit.
  3. 2018 Christmas Colorized Episode

    Interesting choice. I hope they do "The Audition" at some stage; it'd be nice to see the Tropicana showcased, plus there's color reference footage.
  4. Gag Headlines

    This is great! Would definitely make a viable plot for a modern-day episode.
  5. Lucy's MAME is coming on Blu-Ray!!!

    I wouldn't worry too much about that. It might just mean the release date has been postponed.
  6. "Roseanne" - 2018 Revival on ABC

    I agree that the theatre terms would be appropriate for TV as well. Revivals for those that are continuations, revisals for those with a whole new cast and concept.
  7. "Roseanne" - 2018 Revival on ABC

    I hate the term reboot. It's terribly overused and applies to too many things. It's essentially replaced remake and gets thrown around very loosely these days. A sequel series should be called a revival, IMO, while a reimagining with a new cast and creative team is a remake. Those concepts are not the same yet both get branded "reboot" left, right and centre. Overuse of the word also prevents the new show from developing its own identity; it anchors it firmly in the shadow of its predecessor. The media does like shoving everything inside their pre-made little boxes, don't they?
  8. Lucy's MAME is coming on Blu-Ray!!!

    I believe Warner Archive uses BD-50s instead of 25s, the way Warner Home Video does for their catalogue releases. So I'm pleased the archive is handling this release. I'm sure it'll look beautiful.
  9. This week's episode was excellent. A real return to form. This was the first new show that, to me, wouldn't have felt tonally out of place during the initial run (modern day plot points aside). "I literally cannot remember the opposite of figuratively" may be the funniest 21st-century laugh line I've ever heard.
  10. Tonight's episode was better, and should've aired first. Nonetheless, after rewatching the entire first-run during the hiatus between last season and this one, I'm now convinced you can never go home again. It's the same cast, same characters, same locations, but they can't fully replicate the original run's atmosphere. Granted, my tastes have evolved since the show first left the air, and I'm not as partial to the series overall the way I once was, but there's no denying the new episodes feel somewhat off.
  11. Jerry Thorpe has died

    Sad indeed. My condolences to his family. He'll live on through his accomplishments.
  12. Vicki Lawrence headlines FOX pilot

    I like it when Ken writes posts like this. As much as I enjoy what he has to say, he can sometimes come across a bit cynical and judgmental, IMO. I appreciate it when he dials down the snark and can admit to changing his previously held opinions.
  13. Turns out my feelings were right - last week's show was the second episode produced, but they decided to air it first because of Schwimmer. That's why none of the bombshells from last season's finale were addressed, which made it not feel like an appropriate season debut. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/will-grace-premiere-bosses-david-schwimmer-role-revival-season-2-plan-1149550
  14. Vicki Lawrence headlines FOX pilot

    Loved the second episode. The pilot was good, but this outing showed a definite improvement. It felt so good to laugh at something new for a change. While Leslie Jordan is essentially playing a (slightly) less bitchy version of his W&G character, I'm enjoying his contribution. Loved Vicki's "P Booze & J" sandwiches. I may have to try one of those someday.
  15. Watched the premiere of season 2 (or 10) tonight. I'm pleased to see they've dialed the political references right down, but I can't say I was wowed by this episode. I liked David Schwimmer and think he has potential to be a great guest star, but overall it didn't feel like a premiere-quality episode, more like filler you bury somewhere in the middle. I appreciate their efforts to bring more physical comedy to the proceedings, but Sean Hayes seemed to be trying waaay too hard to be funny during his shtick.
