Allison Janney is… Pretty. And pretty funny. And pretty smart. And pretty tall. HOW tall? No one really knows. Noone except…. Frodo. Frodo knows.
Five little bitters in a queen size bed and Janney said..
Five bitter actors in a queen size bed & Janney said “Roll over, roll over.” So they all rolled over and Greg fell out w/a scream and a shout, “Pleeeeease remember… to SUB-scribe to our YouTube channel. Queen sized beds should only be for me
The only person who seems to know the intimate details of Ms. Janney’s physique is that iconic little person from Middle Earth. Will he tell you EXACTLY how tall our guest-star is? You’ll have to watch and find out. As for the “Bitter Five?” We’re high on Janney, no matter HOW bad she makes us look in comparison.
But nobody bothered asking THE GAYS if they were okay with that, now, DID they?
They weren’t. So she keeps coming back.
Then there was Arrested Development (no
argument there) And now… Twinkies®.
Filled with creamy comedy goodness.Not even the despotic dinosaurs of the Holy Roman Network TV Empire could crush the Bluth family’s “comeback chi.”
Yes, Netflix is lending it’s Midas touch to Hostess®’s leading lady by adding the iconic cream-filled spongecake to it’s already impressive string of resurrected classics. And no one saw it coming…
Netflix was a slow-build at first– the street cred of this upstart gaining momentum with each hipster who signed up in a Dylan-inspired, anti-cable protest. Let us not forget that Netflix was once just another “New Kid On the Blockbuster®” dvd rental service. Initially we expected nothing more from Netflix than the convenience of renting movies without leaving our homes. But since the Holy Grail known as Arrested Development was added to it’s roster of reanimated comedy corpses, it’s started to achieve a near Messianic status among hipster tv snobs and the media who love to court them. Netflix isn’t just a subscription video service anymore, or a web-centric tv-viewing hub… they’re miracle workers!!! And the Bluth family is it’s Lazarus!
Roll back that ancient stone, woman! The death certificate issued by the Pherises of tv has no more power over death than their AARP cards or their VHS tapes! I, NETFLIX, command ye… Roll back the stone and LET COMEDY…. LIVE!
Netflix raises the dead…
Netflix has made watching tv respectable again. Something to be PROUD of.
And okay, so…. no. They’re not REEEEEEEALLY optioning Twinkies® as a half-hour multi-cam lead-in to AD. But I wouldn’t put it past them.
You can get great interview-y goodness with A.D. creator Mitch Hurwitz on HuffPo, and further Hurwitz insights here. Or, if you wear a tie to work, you might enjoy reading up on the business side of cream-filled sponge-cake here: Twinkies coming in July – CBS News.
And as for Judy, you can hear her talk all about her “come back” right here.
This is a song from the hilarious musical starring genius Martin Short, which toured the US and Canada in 2006. I was lucky enough to be a part of it, along with the incredible team of Brooks Ashmanskas, Capathia Jenkins, and Nicole Parker (Mad TV).
It had songs written by the Tony-winning team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, with a book by comedy legend Alan Zweibel and Daniel Goldfarb. Choreography was by Christopher Gatelli.
Every morning after I wake up I draw whatever I can remember from my dreams the night before. On this occasion, I dreamt that every year the Vatican would have a swimming contest in a very secluded lake surrounded by formidable cliffs to decide who’d get to be pope. And in my dream I got to swim WITH them.
