Re: Discussion for Episode 13: Pressure

I'm sure it's been discussed, but I can't find it anywhere... Rayanne and Tino are at the house together, did anyone take that to mean that it was a 'friends with very casual benefits' situation between them, at least sometimes? Or, is everyone convinced they were just there hanging out, possibly to...

Re: Discussion for Episode 12: Self Esteem

So, this week is the start of the fall quarter of parks & rec adult school classes in my town. I couldn't not think of MSCL when a half-hour into our two-hour class it became 'nightmarishly clear' that our teacher wasn't going to show. I didn't have a flip phone or Stephen Deiter's phone number, but...

Re: 25th Anniversary Paley Center LA & NY Aug 2019

I know! It was oddly timed. I only just received it in an email yesterday from my regular Paley Center email list updates. AND I almost immediately deleted it from my inbox. The subject line was: "LA: Phylicia Rashad & Lynn Whitfield; Costumes from The Masked Singer", and it was maybe the third even...

25th Anniversary Paley Center LA & NY Aug 2019

Hi all! As Sascha predicted in the "Wilson Cruz Talks About The 25th Anniversary of ‘My So-Called Life’" thread I don't expect them to make anything "big" like any kind of revival. But maybe they get together, make a few interviews and some kind of private anniversary party. A public event at the Pa...

Re: Wilson Cruz Talks About The 25th Anniversary of ‘My So-Called Life’

So... Paley Center is right, but... As of now it just looks like a marathon screening of selected episodes and a rescreening of the original Paley Center cast panel from 25 years ago. It's happening both in LA and New York, but as far as I can tell, there is no new content being created, i.e. no reu...

Re: Wilson Cruz Talks About The 25th Anniversary of ‘My So-Called Life’

Woah! I'm afraid to be excited by this. But in a year that's bringing me a Deadwood movie and a new season of V. Mars , maybe there's reason to be hopeful? I can't even quite picture what this would be. It's hard to imagine it becoming a series again, and it's hard to imagine a film would have the s...

Recent work for Wilson Cruz

Wilson Cruz has been working steadily, but here are the two places I was most recently excited to see him show up: 1.) Showtime's Shameless , playing a bartender Shameless_711_0443.R.jpg 2.) Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, playing an attorney (in a teenage story based around a high school that happens to ...

MSCL named as factor for Full House's decline

In Lifetime's "Beyond the Headlines: Full House ", the producers name MSCL (with a few show stills), along with 90210 , Seinfeld & Melrose as a shift in audience sensibilities and the cause of the show's decline. (I grew up watching Full House , but I don't at all remember it overlapping with when I...

Devon Gummersall on Mad Men

Following Bess Armstrong's awesome appearance on Mad Men , Devon Gummersall was on Sunday's season 7 back half premier. His character went on a blind date with the legendary Peggy Olson; it started out awkward, got pretty friendly, then fizzled out in typical Peggy fashion. I doubt he'll return, but...

Re: Toad the Wet Sprocket

So, Toad the Wet Sprocket opened for Counting Crows last night (head nod to my ol' pal Nothingman if you're still around at all) and I have a vague 90's familiarity with Toad's music -- their radio songs and the few songs I know from soundtracks (pretty sure they're on Empire Records, etc.) so each ...

Re: Discussion for Episode 2: Dancing in the Dark

This line always stands out to me -- I don't get why the writers included this. It does give a good rhythm to Angela's line, but in all my life I have never heard any real person talk about a wedding in this way. Okay, so last night was the first time I've attended a wedding that touted itself as "...

Re: Friday Night Lights

've grown to really like Riggins (partly because I have a thing for sad long-haired boys who need to be saved). There was a scene I just watched when Coach Taylor actually went up to him to tell him how honorable his behavior is. I like how Tim is never afraid to take the hit for someone else. And ...
