Storyline

The show opens with the "gossip of the day" in which a Hedda Hopper-ized Holland Taylor mixes tales of the studio era, circa 1937, with the behind the scenes stories of our friends at the mythical Silver Screen Pictures. The plot then develops, often containing crude references to real life stars of yesteryear combined with failed attempts at witty dialogue and plot points that are often inconceivable, i.e. random "raids" on various parties and clubs, although prohibition ended 4 years earlier. The show ends the same way it began, with a sometimes drunk Hedda-Holland giving us a bit of "juicy gossip" about our "favorite" stars, then proceeding to insult them once her radio minute is over.

OK but oughta be better
4 February 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Great TV it ain't, but pleasant nostalgia TV it definitely is. I enjoyed the overdone allusions to Hollywood's past particularly for that reason: they were overdone, and fun. All the regulars were good. I refuse to comment on the point that "Remember WENN" was replaced by "The Lot," because there's room for superb apples and pretty good oranges on AMC. I'd like to see "The Lot" brought back in a sharper form, same regulars -- but with stronger and more vivid writing about the foibles of old-time Hollywood. And while I'm writing this communication -- AMC: KNOCK OFF THOSE IRRITATING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR PROGRAMS!! Otherwise you'll drive me to TCM.
