    Last night I watched the Carol Burnett 90 Yrs of Laughter and Love special on Peacock. I LOVED The Carol Burnett Show back in the 60s. I was so thrown back to my teen-aged life while watching it that I actually FB messaged my old best-friend-and-unrequited-love-interest from high school because he and I would replay the scenes at our lockers the next day after every show, and laugh endlessly over some of the skits. He VMed me right away to say that he thinks of me whenever he watches Carol Burnett reruns. (No threat to DH--my dear friend has been married to a man for years now.)

    oh, that’s so cute! I think of Carol Burnett as being my mothers comic though. Carol did a recent stint on “better call Saul” last season that I hear was pretty good but I couldn’t bring myself to watch that entire season. I’m tired of Vince Gilligan stuff, groundbreaking tho he was.


    as soon as you said your friend used to reenact Burnett skits at your locker, I knew he was gay before you even said it!

    A friend mentioned that Hill Street Blues was free for Amazon Prime members for all seasons on Prime video. Watched the first two episodes over the weekend. So damned politically incorrect that I laughed my ass off. One cop even said “check his immigration status!” about the owner of a liquor store that was held up.

    This was 1981. No cell phones, typewriters instead of computers. Kinda culture shock watching it. Cops having to search out pay phones.

    Watched the whole season of "Jury Duty" this weekend. Hilarious! With Ronald they really really found the perfect guy for the roll.

    My wife and I binged the entire season a week or so ago, I thought it was excellent! Just read this morning that a second season has been ordered so we'll be looking forward to that.

    That’s good to hear. I love Keri Russell, I think she’s so elegant. I watched this because I heard an interview with her on NPR’s Fresh AiRe. And then Rufus Sewell, I am a fan of his too.

    She's so much more than just elegant!

    haha, I won’t ask you to elaborate on that, but in this interview she comes off as someone with some practical common sense. For Hollywood anyway.

    Watching the last season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Prime as episodes are released.
