A place where I can post, write, say, do whatever the hell I want without backlash from some dickweed. No one knows I'm here, and no one knows me here. FREEDOM!
Original Mork & Mindy write-up from the Fall Preview issue of TV Guide, September 9, 1978. Apparently the show was orginally slated to air on Monday nights before being moved to Thursdays. I find it odd that they say Mork is scouting Earth for possible immigration by other ‘Orkians’ since there’s nothing to suggest that on the show! Maybe it was an early concept that got scrapped?
David Bianculli reviews a new series on Amazon, Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development). Tambor plays Mort Pfefferman, the patriarch of a fractured family, who, at 70, decides to transition to be a woman—Maura.
"Tambor plays this character completely straight — so to speak — without any hint of cheap humor. And it’s Tambor’s commitment to the role that makes Transparent work so well, and so quickly. When Maura, dressed in a wig and a loose-fitting blouse, explains to her support group where she is in her journey to a new sexual identity, there’s no condescension whatsoever. Not from the group — and certainly not from the way Tambor plays her.”
