Revivals

Tonys the best TV show. Actual talent on display from old classics Oklahoma or Kiss Me Kate. James Corden. Who new? He was great.

Big Little Lies. Season 2. Abusive husband replaced by abusive mother-in-law. Of course. Celeste takes the bait. Evil and dark, Meryl Streep is even better in the role than I’d predicted. Real. Resonates.

Rory woke up and commanded Canada’s course. Welcome back.

Retro Fit

Archie & Edith are at it again in the remake of All in the Family. Or. Is it Donald & Nancy? 2019’s latest Bickersons. As was evident from watching the retro show. Everything old is new again. And. Nothing much has really changed in the past forty-plus years.

Racism. Sexism. Political schisms.

Game of Spin-Offs

Game of Thrones finale. Or is it?

Once again a guy gets the big job. He’ll rule six kingdoms. Sansa’s left with one. If Bran was so prescient, how come he didn’t know that and save us all a lot of time. And weird white eyeballs.

Tyrion says that stories are the thing. His will be a show with maybe the reunion of Drogon and Jon Snow. Mrs. Jonas could have a Winterfell sequel with a new Night King. Arya’s travels a third series where she becomes a hit-woman and will finally use all of those face masks.

There is more gold in store for Benioff & Co.

Clown Car

It’s officially a Clown Car now. Mayor DeBlasio is #23 in the Democrat primary race. He joins the latest Montana guy Bullock? Bollocks? It’s just silly. And. If Sleepy Creepy Joe stays at the top of the heap of jesters. Advantage Trump.

Meanwhile. Tiger’s under the big top at Bethpage Black at +2 thru 3. Since nobody would drive me out there, have to watch it online. Boo! At least the sun is out for a change.

Big Bang. Last episode. Unless Bolton gets us into a war with Iran.

Qué Será Será

Mom’s favorite song. Dad’s favorite actress. Bye Doris Day.

Over at the Red Keep things got pretty hot. Cersei & Jaime together forever. The witch was right. Only 3 children. And. My sources tell me that the pale horse Arya rode off on is Death. Theories blown.

Sansa did marry a Jonas brother. So. She & Tyrion will likely rule. After the women fight it out. Dany v. Sansa v. Greyjoy Sister. Last Game of Thrones next Sunday. Gonna miss it. Whatever will be. Will be.

Will not miss VEEP. Bye Felicia.

Mamas & Dragons

Blustery day for moms. Glad we celebrated on a gorgeous uncrowded Saturday. Any time with mAdBen is a perfect day.

Amy Poehler’s Wine Country movie. Ten minutes in. Unwatchable. Emma Thompson on SNL. Watchable. Keenan Thompson. Neither.

Memo to Kamala and other candidates. Ban these phrases:
We are better than this
This is not who we are

GOT theory expressed by our waiter. The dragons’ real mama is still out there. And. Tyrion is a Targaryen. That could be interesting.

And They’re Off

Breaking News. Seriously. Network television just broke into regular programming to announce the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby boy. Yup. That’s journalism today.

The Derby. Notice a familiar theme? 20-odd horses in the field. 20-odd Democrats running for President. How did/will that turn out?

As the troops descend on the Red Keep, arrows fly from the sea. Dany is now down two dragons on GOT. Cersei is up to her familiar evil tricks. Jaime a likely lynchpin. And. Arya and The Hound are together again. To take revenge and position Sansa for the throne?

The Hound’s brother could be the key.
