  1. It seemed like it was in the Salinas Valley or nearby.
  2. Post-Prohibition, they would have gone back to shipping it by truck and rail. Flying it in would have been prohibitively expensive and unnecessarily risky. Kathie Lee Gifford co-wrote a Broadway musical about Aimee Semple McPherson. The original Perry Mason series rarely featured a jury trial. The vast majority of cases featured were settled in preliminary hearings. I've heard this was because the producers didn't want to go to the expense of hiring extras to play jurors. The diner where Sister Alice was working was shown to be in Carmel (on the piece of paper Paul gave to Perry.) This is not far from where Perry's ex and son were living. I hope he managed to work in a visit while he was there.
  3. Since there was a reference to "my right hand," I assumed she meant that Randolph did it (or at least was in charge of it.)
  4. Some more meta, although a bit of a stretch: One of Piper Perabo's (Mrs. Craft) first movies was "Coyote Ugly." A coyote theme? I continue to find it odd to have the scenes of native German speakers (at the Bund meeting, and with Peter and Elsa) conversing in English.
  5. In RBPM the majority of episodes never featured a jury at all because the producers didn't want to have to hire and pay extras to play them. All but a few of the episodes involved preliminary hearings, and not the actual trials themselves.
  6. Does it seem odd to anyone else that Dr. Craft and Elsa don't speak to each other in German? Also -- was it intentional or coincidental that they had Nathan Lane's character asking to see "Miss Adelaide?" Lane's big breakthrough part on Broadway was playing Nathan Detroit in "Guys and Dolls," and Nathan's love interest is ... Miss Adelaide!
  7. Have you forgotten that Fats Domino begat Chubby Checker?
  8. In addition to the 1950s-60s "Perry Mason" on CBS, there were a number of PM movies in the '30s. In all of them, Perry is an attorney (either in LA or San Francisco.) And he's more foppish and elegant than even the Raymond Burr version is. So--a far cry from this iteration of Perry -- except for the drinking. Both of them are big drinkers. (There were also PM radio shows, but I've never heard them.)
  9. I haven't noticed Bryce in any of the quarantine episodes. I think he must have told them he didn't have any intention of participating. It's always some combination of Paige, Alex, Todd, Stuart, and Mauricio (usually three or four for each show.)
  10. Apparently it does include making television commercials however, because seemingly every business in America has at least one quarantine- or COVID-related ad running.
  11. I certainly hope that Stuart is not Paige's "SO," since they are cousins. (Stuart is Ree's nephew; he was introduced on the previous quarantine episode.)
  12. Did anyone notice that Henry used the verboten term "Bake-Off" (for U.S. viewers) and they didn't edit it out?
  13. A pavlova is usually just a round flat meringue with a raised ring of meringue around the circumference and all filled with fruit. I was confused by the use of "as it happens." Obviously the show is not live (even in the UK), but I assume you meant that it's being made available almost simultaneously with the British broadcast and not a full season at a time. Now for my question: One of the bakers said the smell of something (framboise?) reminded her of "calpol." (That's what the closed captioning said.) Does anyone know what that is? Also, closed captioning always refers to the baker as "Steph," but she was wearing a necklace with "Steffi" on it this week.
  14. How many couples can you see? (From Alice's Instagram.)
  15. Do they film different intros for the Netflix/US shows? Because the Wizard of Oz team called it "The Great British Baking Show," which is, as far as I know, the name that's required to be used in the US (instead of "Bake-Off.") I don't recall them doing that in the past.
