  1. I loved that show! I always loved Miss Piggy! I found a "Up Late With Miss Piggy" mug on Amazon - around $17. They have 2 left in stock. Just search Amazon if you're interested.

    The Closer

    Today's set of episodes on Lifetime had some favorites: "Waivers of Extradition" - Brenda bests a Texas detective by getting a confession out of a serial killer. The guy is absolutely chilling, and the Texas detective was a great adversary for Brenda. There's also an exciting chase sequence when Sanchez jumps on the bad guy's auto hauler and forces him off the road - not before the truck runs through a road repair crew. "The Life" - tracking down the gang members who raped a young woman - played by a Stephanie Beatriz who is now playing Detective Rosa Diaz on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Per IMDB.COM, this was her first screen credit. "Make Over" - ok, I admit this was never one of my favorites. But it is interesting to compare the knowledge/attitudes about transgenders. Beau Bridges plays a trangender female cop who was once one of Provenza's partners. (When it first aired I remember thinking "any self respecting female would have trimmed and shaped those eyebrows!")

    TV Tropes: Love 'em or Loathe 'em

    On "Mom", the first season was about Violet (the daughter) getting pregnant and deciding to give the baby up for adoption. That was basically the entire arc for the first season; discovering she was pregnant, telling the father, deciding to give up the baby, choosing the parents, waffling on her decision, giving birth, and saying goodbye to the baby. I was satisfied (and relieved!) with the ending, and the "Violet had a baby" even came up in later plot lines. Of course, Violet eventually disappeared as a character altogether. I don't think it was the wrong decision for the show, because I like it even better now, but on the "Mom" forums we complain that Christy's children Violet and Roscoe aren't ever mentioned.
  5. I really didn't watch it, but that didn't sound right, so I checked: The Bionic Woman ran for 3 seasons, 58 episodes. Lindsay Wagner actually won an Emmy for it.

    TV Tropes: Love 'em or Loathe 'em

    Along those lines - people who are struggling actors/waiters/whatev and have really nice furniture, kitchen stuff, and nick-knacks. I don't mind so much when these people wear $200 t-shirts, because I can't really tell, but set decorators should take a hint from "All In The Family" or "Roseanne" for what a real struggling family's house/apartment looks like.

    F-U, Reboot-Mania: Express Your Hate Here

    Just speculating - Marla Gibbs is 87. Maybe they were planning to use her all along but had Machado as a fall-back in case Marla couldn't do it for some reason. It was such a treat to see her; she looks great!

    The Closer

    And filling it with Ding Dongs! I know it was the last episode, and I didn't want Brenda to be in trouble, but I was surprised how she was able to get a job with the DA's office after attacking Stroh in the elevator. Actually, I wanted her to kill that SOB in her kitchen; she could have gotten away with it and spared us all those Stroh episodes in "Major Crimes".
  9. I believe someone earlier posited that maybe Sheldon saw his mother, who was wearing a wig and costume in an attempt to spice up their love life. I can see George flirting with a woman, and maybe even actually crossing the line, but I can't see him bringing a woman into their home and into their bedroom.
  10. Here's the tweet with the final shot:
  11. I am going to miss this show! But I loved the finale.

    I hope we find out the story behind the little pin that Howard always wears on his turtleneck collar.

    S06.E22: Crazy Hair and a Teeny Tiny Part of Canada

    This was a funny episode, and a great end to the season. I'm glad they had another wedding; I love weddings, even those on TV. I teared up a little when Bonnie and Adam danced at the reception. Marjorie and her post-it notes 🤣 - I know someone like that! And of COURSE she signs them!

    Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    The early black/white episodes of Gunsmoke are the best!

    The Cast In Other Roles-ish

    Well, the Met Gala is known for outrageous outfits. The theme this year was "camp", which I personally don't think Yara's outfit is. That said, she looks lovely as usual.
