  1. There's a lot of griping about getting an actress who can do comedy for the role, but I'm guessing that Sorkin's script isn't big on laughs. Studio 60 had a similar setting and emphasized the backstage drama over the fictional sketch series that was being produced. If this is Sorkin's immediate followup to The Trial of the Chicago 7, he's probably got carte blanche to do what he wants. It'll probably be serviceable at best. And Carole Cook needs a cameo.
  2. Those are not bad casting choices. I do wonder about Sorkin being attached, as I'm not usually a fan of his writing. This makes me wonder who on earth will be cast in other roles. I really have no clue. Whenever this project comes to fruition, I AM anticipating the Lounge nitpicking it to death as only diehard fans could.
  3. I had a realization tonight that I don't think I've shared here before: for many years, the login password for my computer has been "uncleharry". That's definitely some Real Life Lucy that I implement every day. Don't sneak into my house and access my files, though.

  6. Desiree Anzalone passed away late last month after a battle with breast cancer☹️ https://www.thelist.com/255506/the-heartbreaking-death-of-lucille-balls-great-granddaughter/
  7. Ann as a regular second banana would have been great, but it probably would have thrown the entire dynamic out of whack. Lucy would have had to play the straight woman to the Countess's fish out of water flamboyance, as opposed to Viv's down to earth sarcasm that kept Lucy grounded. If Ann had stayed on, I wouldn't be surprised if her character would have been changed to more of that Viv/Eve Arden-type of eye-rolling wisecracker. It's still a shame that we never got to see her make an appearance after 1966.
  8. https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/amy-poehler-lucille-ball-desi-arnaz-i-love-lucy-1234775103/ A short Variety piece with Amy discussing the documentary. I love that she likens Lucy's physical acting to "a beautiful dancer".
  9. A question for the experts: when does Little Ricky's name first officially come up? Today I realized that I don't remember a scene where they decide to name the baby after his father. I don't recall it happening in "Lucy Goes to The Hospital", maybe in one of the wraparound segments done for the flashback episodes?
  10. The grief surrounding her passing is very palpable and I’m sad to say I’m not super familiar with her work. We were definitely always a Masterpiece household but with her leaving in 2003 I’m too young to remember her hosting gig. Her performance in the film version of A Little Night Music was more than Oscar-worthy, and I consider her “Every Day a Little Death” to be the best I’ve heard. I was in NYC when she was playing Mrs. Higgins at Lincoln Center and considered going, but was too lazy to walk/too cheap to pay for a cab (on top of ticket prices) and now I regret it. I think I’ve seen one episode of the MTM-style sitcom she did in the 70s and am tempted to seek out more.
  11. Such a distinctive actor; I remember him just as well from Golden Girls and Out to Sea. I never knew that he made it through the blacklist. His passing made me remember something- has anyone else seen his LWL episode listed as both “...Legal Eagle” and “...Legal Beagle”? Was this just a typo that cropped up? I’m not familiar with whatever idiom the title came from.
  12. Wilford Brimley has died at 85; yes, only 85. It seems like he’s been an old geezer with di-a-beetus forever.
  13. Oscar Expert Matthew Stewart, who has a great website with statistics concerning Oscar-winning and nominated performances, pointed out the following about Dame O today: She was the oldest-living Oscar winner and nominee, oldest Best Actress winner and nominee, and oldest Best Supporting Actress nominee. As of last night, the oldest living winner is Eva Marie Saint, the oldest living Best Actress winner is Joanne Woodward, the oldest living nominee/Supporting Actress nominee is Glynis Johns, and the oldest living Best Actress nominee is Cicely Tyson. Stewart's website, https://www.screentimecentral.com, is a bevy of information for us data nerds.
  14. The best comment I've seen about this so far: https://twitter.com/carriecourogen/status/1287421710837460994 Ryan Murphy had better sleep with one eye open tonight.
  15. Honestly, out of everything 2020 has thrown at us, this is one that I did not see coming.
