    I Have A Serious Questions That Deserve Answers!!!

    The Golden Globes were last night and Jason Bateman and his daughters spent the evening at the home of Jason's F•R•I•E•N•D Jennifer Aniston. When I saw a photo of Bateman and his daughters at a table in Aniston's house (Empire with Louis XIV chairs, very nice) my head exploded. First, I thought...

    Tchaikovsky's Influence on Bill Conti's Theme to Falcon Crest

    Film and television composers have been greatly influenced by Classical composers. It's even a common practice to edit portions of motion pictures to a piece of Classical music before the score is composed. Some directors will ask a composer to write a piece similar to a particular piece of...

    Another Reason to Hate Ivanka and Jared

    The Washington Post just posted a story that says the Kushners refused to allow the Secret Service agents assigned to protect them - I repeat assigned to protect them! - use of any of the toilets (there are at least 7 according to real estate listings) in their house in D.C.'s Kalorama...

    Spun-off and Watered-down

    It has struck me that when a favorite supporting character is spun-off to their own series the character is often watered-down or has their rough edges smoothed over as part of the transition. A prime example of this is Rhoda Morgenstern. On The Mary Tyler Moore Show Rhoda is brash and...

    It Didn't Have To Be A Dream

    Here's my solution to bring back Patrick Duffy/Bobby Ewing without dismissing an entire season of episodes as a dream. After we see Sue Ellen enter J.R.'s office and witness the explosion we cut to the following scene: Establishing shot: the coast of St. Barts with luxury villas along the...

    Why Is It Abbreviated As "DS"?

    The CW has created logos for its series with abbreviations of the series' names. I'm puzzled by the logo for "Dynasty" because it's "DS". Can someone please explain?

    Adam Should Have A Brain Tumor

    Adam is evil, irremediably so. Mile High Adam's evil ways were attributed to drug abuse frying his brain. If Peach Adam is to remain on the show there must be some reason for some of his family members to tolerate him. I previously expected there would be a doctor's convention at La Mirage with...

    A Grain Of Sand In My Shoe

    At work I share the responsibility of interviewing job applicants. During some interviews I'll get a sense of something that I can't pinpoint that will give me cause for concern - something is "a bit off". I've described this to my co-workers as similar to having a grain of sand in my shoe. I...

    U.S. First Ladies - In Moldavia?!

    Alexis Morell Carrington... Flores?

    We've all assumed the man who will "expire" shortly after marrying Alexis is Jeff. What if it isn't? It seems like we will be meeting Cristal's father pretty soon and he is a wealthy and powerful man so he's obviously Alexis' "type". Cristal speaks of her "family" but I don't remember her saying...

    What Horrible Mothers They Were

    The women of Knots Landing may have had some admirable qualities but most of them were very poor mothers. Lilimae: abandoned Valene and Joshua to become a star in Nashville (which never happened) and didn't bother to connect with her children again until they were adults. By that point Valene...

    A Very Brady Renovation

    Last year the Los Angeles house used in establishing shots as the family home on "The Brady Bunch" went up for sale. HGTV purchased the house with plans to use it for a series. When I learned this I imagined them giving the house's split-level mid-century modern style a 21st century update. The...
