  1. S11.E04: Three Shirts to the Wind

    Corky divorced Will midway through the original show's run. She and Miles actually eloped sometime after that (and then he left her when Grant Shaud left the show), but that marriage has apparently been retconned.
  2. S11.E04: Three Shirts to the Wind

    Well, Garry Marshall died two years ago, so that guest appearance isn't happening, sadly. :'(
  3. S11.E04: Three Shirts to the Wind

    He DID call her Slugger! It was really fast, but he did it!
  4. S11.E04: Three Shirts to the Wind

    JIM! I enjoyed it, especially the end when Avery shows Murphy the dance remix of her takedown.
  5. S01.E01: Keep on Truckin'

    That's actually not true at all. Lecy Goranson did originally leave the old show to attend Vassar College, but she has had a varied career of supporting roles in movies/guest starring roles on TV/stage work in between her runs as Becky. I am genuinely and pleasantly surprised at how well this turned out. There were a few awkward moments, but not too many. Between this and Murphy Brown's return this season, I was a LOT more nervous for this show, but I can now happily report that I'm enjoying both. I'm in! And Wacky Jackie seems to be gone, praise Jesus.
  6. It's not shocking, but I hope Ariana is okay. Between Manchester last year and Mac Miller's death this year, she has been through A LOT.
  7. Oh yeah, that's her Archive of American Television interview. There a lot people in television--daytime and primetime, on and off camera--who have done those, as a way to preserve TV history. There are other soap stars/soap TPTB who have done them, too.
  8. Didn't you watch Murphy Brown in the old days, though? You seemed to be a fan in the past. Oh well, different strokes and all that. Don't want anyone mad at me. :) (And, in all honesty, I have little to no interest in anything by Larry David. Maybe I'll change my mind someday, but all the attention surrounding him and his shows has always put me right off. Ditto the Harry Potter books.) I really need to catch up with the show on Antenna TV. I haven't seen nearly enough of it outside of the season 1 DVD (and the episode with Murphy's baby shower, which my mom taped from the original broadcast in 1992). I watched it on Nick at Nite back in the day, but not nearly enough.
  9. There are plenty of sitcoms that tackle serious issues with a dash of humor. All in the Family was one, this show is another. Both, I think, are examples of shows that largely got it right, but obviously mileage varies. Anyway: I'm going to burst into tears when Jim comes back next week and calls Murphy "Slugger", I just know it. I always loved it when he called her that. And he had one of the funniest scenes during the breast cancer story (yes, there were some during that story): going to a park in the middle of the night in DC to score Murphy some pot!
  10. S11.E03: Hashtag Murphy Too

    Still some awkward parts at times, but still enjoying it. And Murphy getting the award back made me so happy. And I started to tear up when Jim showed up in the promo for next week. I think his episode was supposed to be the third one, so I guess these two were switched around.
  11. Country Music, Y'all!

    Well, we're finally here. The top 2. Not surprising, of course, but still, we've made it! She was born a coal miner's daughter in Eastern Kentucky, living in extreme poverty with her parents and siblings before marrying at around 13 or 14 years old, moving with her husband to Washington State and bearing four children before she was even in her 20's. There was no reason to think that she would make it out of those humble beginnings, but her husband loved it when she would sing, bought her a guitar, and encouraged her to start performing in public. Her honest lyrics about life of everyday women quickly struck a chord (to the point that songs like "Rated X" and "The Pill" would be banned by country radio), and her legend continues to the present day, with her newest album, Wouldn't It Be Great, finally being released this year after a stroke caused it to be delayed. She's still writing, she's still touring, and she is a major reason I fell in love with country music. #2: Loretta Lynn. http://www.countryuniverse.net/2018/10/11/100-greatest-women-2-loretta-lynn-2/ This is the same woman who was named number one ten years ago, when this list was originally complied by Country Universe. While there is an argument to be made that there are other women who might have deserved to be at the top of the list, when you read this, you can't really think of anyone else topping this list than a multi-medium entertainer who emerged from the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee like a blanket of light and joy, spreading her heart to the rest of the world in the process. And we are a better place for it, and for her. #1: Dolly Parton. http://www.countryuniverse.net/2018/10/11/100-greatest-women-1-dolly-parton-2/ Guys, I have had the GREATEST time sharing this list with you. I only hope to do this again in 10 years, when this list will have its 20th anniversary (and when I'm 39--yikes!). If I see a list on Country Universe similar to this in the near future, I'll be sure to share it. :)
  12. She's not big in terms of chart success for her singles, but her albums have been strong sellers and she does have a very devoted fan base. However, she has gotten criticism for putting on a very fatalistic, noir type of pop star image,* despite being born a rich girl named Elizabeth "Lizzy" Grant. So...yeah, she has her detractors. *She once said in an interview in 2014 that she wished she was already dead sometimes, which pissed off Frances Bean Cobain enough to criticize her publicly. I do like quite a few of her songs, though, especially a lot of songs off her 2015 album Honeymoon (Lust for Life is her most recent album, from last year).
  13. You might know this already, but Stephen Smith is actually a huge GH fan.
  14. That's the right order. God help me for knowing that, though.
  15. He did, actually. Or at least he made her think he was, at first. He appeared on the show to promote George magazine, which he had just started at the time (the retrospective episode aired the year before).
