NOV 2016 TV DISCUSSION

Speaking of character actor laden 80s tv show episodes, there's an episode of Miami Vice that features a biker gang of Reb Brown, Sonny Landham, and John Matuszak (Sloth from The Goonies).  It was written by John Milius under an alias.

Miami Vice is a fucking treasure trove of "hey it's that guy!"  Michael Madsen.  James Remar.  Terry O'Quinn.  Chris Rock.  Giancarlo Esposito showing up 2-3 times as different characters.  You know you're hitting the deep cuts when you find yourself saying, "is that the dad from Ugiy Betty?  Shit, it is!"

Did they ever say WHY they didn't like each other? Clash of personalities? I can see Jamie being a dick in real life, perhaps.

Here is the interview with the dinner quote that Fowler remembered better than me

Here is another article where Jamie says the same thing about not having dinner

Both of them basically point to the same thing - their personalities are just totally different

Amazon announced that they are doing a revival of Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (it will still be a kid's show)

Recorded a bunch of episodes of Blunt Talk, as Directv had an all premium channel preview over Thanksgiving. Not that it needed repeated, but Patrick Stewart is a goddamned treasure. . . .

In an awesome "Hey it's that guy" in cheesy 80s tv straight flush the episode of KNIGHT RIDER I just watched with John Vernon playing the bad guy was immediately followed by an episode of THE A-TEAM with John Vernon playing the bad guy.

 

I love it when a plan comes together.

Aaaand Charles Napier is going to fight Mr. T.  YEEEEAH!!!

 

Aaaaand John Vernon actually yelled "You'll never get away with this!" at one point.

Also of note.  In the space of four days two different final girls from Friday the 13th movies showed up on The A-Team.

Amy Steel from Part 2 and Dana Kimmell from Part 3.

A-Team cast spotting is my new favorite game.

I saw the Amy Steel episode at random a few months ago at my mom and stepdad's place. Did a double take cause I've never seen her in anything other than Friday the 13th before.

Gilmore Girls reunion was super fun. Some stuff was a little off. Some was pretty pointless. But the show kept its soul, had some great funny moments and the arcs of the main characters were really well done. There were a few moments that made the room a little dusty in the fourth episode.

Kelly Bishop is a national treasure. She really deserves a bunch of awards for her role as Emily in this. She nailed every scene. 

Overall, a great way to spend the Friday after Thanksgiving. It's such a great show and I am glad I got to spend some more time with the characters.

I adored all four episodes. I was laughing and crying through all of it. 

And yeah, Kelly Bishop is fucking amazing. The DAR "BULLSHIT!" scene was incredible. She's the best. And it made me so happy to see Jason Mantzoukas in a cameo  (he frequently mentions GG on How Did This Get Made).

I'm most curious to see how they tackle Jughead and if they will make Reggie generic asshole as opposed to asshole with a heart of gold

Ignore this. I didn't hit quote, it won't go away.

I've been looking forward to Riverdale for months. Archie meets Twin Peaks is the most interestingly strange high concept to come down the pike in quite some time.
