The Nanny (1993)
OK, Fran, you're Jewish, WE GET IT.
Though this show is a not a bad little thing to have on when you're done watching Golden Girls... I don't think this is even on the list for good sitcoms of the '90's, must less best sitcoms ever! The show started out cute and quickly became a pure platform for Drescher, and the most annoying Jewish stereotypes I ever saw cast on television. Though the show began with a cute premise, it wears very thin after not much time at all. So do the Jewish stereotypes, which after awhile just get unbelievably tiresome. Not to mention that must be one of the most ANNOYING theme songs EVER. Drescher's nasally voice got on my damn nerves so much I NEVER saw it during its run, and I don't watch it very often now. She really gets to you with the annoying demeanor; I wonder whether a real Englishman would really stand to have her work for him for more than a few days. It wouldn't bother me that the show was basically all about her and her ultra-tacky outfits, if she didn't mug for the camera just about ALL THE TIME. One really gets tired of the grandstanding.
Much smarter (and much less abrasive!!) shows of the '90's: Frasier, Golden Girls, Parker Lewis Can't Lose (NOT Parker Lewis), The Simpsons (not today's episodes, that show is getting silly), Seinfeld, Roseanne, Blossom, Futurama.
Heston Plays it to the Hilt!
My subject line says it all. If you think of Heston only as a dour Moses or as a super-conservative NRA president, prepare to be surprised. There was not one sloppy performance in this film; and the effect is charming. I guarantee you will come away from this movie in a cheerful mood.
Columbo: A Case of Immunity (1975)
Columbo Great as Always, But not enough Mineo
Hi there. I just saw this movie, and while it is great, like all Columbo shows, I'd like to point out that Sal Mineo is only in the first 25 minutes or so of this movie... just in case someone else, like me, happens to watching to see him. I found myself disappointed.
Otherwise, great movie. I could have done without the non-Arabs acting like Arabs, it was pretty transparent (though Mineo pulled it off quite well). If you happen to be watching for Columbo or Elizondo, they do not disappoint.
