  1. I love very much Jewel Staite in her many roles. I saw her first as: Kaylee on: Firefly (2002-2003). Her role in the space-opera was a space cadet who was a savant with all things mechanical. She had the perpetual soft-hearted, clueless innocence of a young girl whose third brownie had just kicked in. She never worried because it was all shiny. I saw her next as a matter-of-fact doctor on: Stargate: Atlantis (2004-2009). The character was so very different from her role as Kaylee that it was difficult for me to reconcile the two. Most of her work has been television series and tel
  2. I have heard the botanical version: you can lead a horticulture but you can not make her think.
  3. This is a quite wonderful schedule and I do hope that TCM Programmers use much of it. I must admit that I was taken aback when I did read your notation: "TCM SPOTLIGHT: Akira and Orson Tackle Shakespeare". It was automatic that I thought first of Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood (1957) but my brain stumbled over the concept of Orson Bean playing Iago. Or Hamlet. Or Macbeth. Or any other powerful Shakespearian character. His portrayal of: Katherina in: "The Taming of the Shrew" in drag would definitely be worth watching and I am sure it would have been a monumental piece of cinematic histo
  4. A little fuzzy of my acquaintance began a lucrative freelance writing career by translating engineering reports into understandable English for a regional utility. His pinnacle achievement was turning a forty-six page quarterly report with sixteen charts into a three page report with one chart which contained all the information which the board of directors wanted and needed to know.
  5. It is my understanding that the way to become a writer on one program is to submit a great script for a similar program. Producers chose this way because it demonstrates ability to write and it is considered unlikely that an outsider's script would be perfectly suitable as written because there are elements of canon which are not known outside the writers' room. Any script would have to undergo editing and/or rewrites before shooting and so it is just as easy to start fresh. Rewriting is often called: "washing garbage". It is my understanding also that writers come and go from a series be
  6. I like this schedule very much! My main concern is how you will break the news to Errol that you are partying down with Moondoggie.
  7. I fear that many will find my choices quite pedestrian. I did not chose which movie I felt was best for each but the ones with which I feel most comfortable and am willing to watch at nearly any time. 1. Robert Aldrich - Kiss Me Deadly (1955) 2. William Castle - Mysterious Intruder (1946) 3. Ida Lupino - The Trouble with Angels (1966) 4. Walter Hill - 48 Hrs. (1982) 5. Lewis Milestone - Anything Goes (1936) 6. Mike Nichols - The Birdcage (1996) 7. Alexander Payne - Nebraska (2013) 8. Vincent Sherman - The Unfaithful (1947) 9. George Sidney - K
