I miss Bob. How many guys have TWO really funny successful TV shows?
None that I know of. I agree, outlaw. He was great and so was the cast.
Second, uh – maybe third.
True…maybe Ed O’Neill,now that he has “Modern Family”.
Dick Van Dyke, Buddy Ebsen, Jack Klugman, Ed Asner, Lucille Ball, Robert Young, Andy Griffith, Drew Carey, but I get your point. Newhart is one of the best.
I am very sorry ubama’s option was picked up for a second season.
First (when rounded to the nearest five).
Not all these had two comedy series, as your original point made, however.
I knew you’d be ready-at-the-door to note my oversight!! That’s why I issued my disclaimer as soon as I saw my little miss. Beat ya to it!! hahaha Dodged the bullet. There’s no letting up around this place & I love it.
(Did you like my Drew Carey reference?)
Bob was great! I still like listening to his old standup routines on XM. Good stuff! BTW, I guess I’m going the route of Texacalirose with the old flames routine, but I was madly in love with Suzanne Pleshette in my younger years!
Such a beauty. Not even blonde, not even trashy, just sexy AND classy.
You were in good company … crowded, too.
Sadly none of the shows on which Jason Bateman’s starred have been successful, but I’ll always be a big fan of It’s Your Move and Arrested Development (and liked Chicago Sons in its brief run). To the Bob Newhart point re. Bateman, didn’t really care for George & Leo, but I’ll blame that lack of comedic chemistry on Judd Hirsch. Never cared for him on Taxi, or anywhere else for that matter.
I don’t understand the dust up. Chucky is perfect for the ubama administration. What did people expect? Free stuff comes with a price.
Off the bus and into the indie house. Last night I saw Quartet. It was slow to warm up but I had tears at the end. It’s a lovely film, Smith is perfect, but my favorite is Pauline Collins’ “Cissy.” Hoffman’s artists’ tribute works for me, and he being Hoffman was able to gather a stunning group of actors. For his first directorship, his biggest challenge was probably to stay out of the way of his cast. “Lights, action, camera, pass the ashtray.”
I highly recommend to Wankita & INFJ. I’m putting the soundtrack in my Amazonia tanker.
Loved Pauline Collins ever since “Upstairs Downstairs”.
Go see this one then fer sure, Scott M. You’ll love her more and forever.
Plus Dame Maggie…sounds like an embarrassment of riches.
