Corner Gas Season 6. This has become my virus series, I've watched it so much, all thanks to not being able to go anywhere. I can't figure out if this is the dullest sitcom ever, or the smartest ever, so smart, is seems dull on purpose...

Perry Mason, episode 5, HBO. 

Wonderful move to have Ian Lithgow, John Lithgow's son play the character of the son of John's character.

I find Mason's relationship or lack thereof with his son moving. It mirrors in many ways the situation a friend of mine has with his son.

Watched the season finale of Perry Mason. This show got better and better as it went along and I'm glad that it has been renewed.

Also watching the final season of X-Files, which I have never seen before. It's interesting the number of actors that show up in this season . . . Michael McKean, Burt Reynolds, Jane Lynch, Aaron Paul, Alan Dale, Paul Faustino, Michael Emerson, et al. And Annabeth Gish impresses me in this season and the preceding one. Also it dawned on me that the character Agent Doggett, played by Robert Patrick, may have been inspired by John Walsh of America's Most Wanted fame. Walsh would have been a big TV presence at this time and the character shares a bit of Walsh's intense demeaner and like Walsh is motivated by the murder of his young son.

The Pluto TV streaming service now has a 24 hour-a-day Johnny Carson channel showing old Tonight Show episodes.  I'm not the first to say if, but I sure miss Johnny Carson.  It's good to be reminded of how good he was and just how bad the monologue jokes often were (and Billy Carter and Dan Quayle jokes have not gotten better with age), but watching him bomb was half the fun.  The episodes have been edited to remove the musical performances., unfortunately.  I saw episodes with B. B. King and Glen Campbell and each time, after the musician was introduced by Johnny, they just cut to  when the performer walks over to the desk after their now deleted song, so that sucks.  They fared better than Thelma Houston did; she was mentioned by Johnny as being among the guests on one episode and then she was edited out altogether.  Still there are some very funny moments especially when he has favorite guests like Buddy Hackett, Charles Grodin,  Rodney Dangerfield and Don Rickles.

Yellowstone - season 3 finale

One of my favorite shows when I was a junior in high school was called The Man Who Never Was.  In my teenage mind I thought that it was more highbrow than most TV shows (certainly drier).  And of course I was in love from afar with an older woman, Dana Wynter.  Naturally, it was cancelled after 18 episodes.

I don't think the series was ever on DVD.  However, about half the episodes were meshed into two "movies."  I have found them on YouTube, and spent much of yesterday binge-watching.

The-Sit-in.jpg

A documentary about the week in Feb. of 1968 when Johnny Carson invited Harry Belafonte to "guest host" The Tonight Show.  So in 1968, for the first time ever, a black talk show host was able to bring black guests talking about black topics into white (and black) homes.  Mr. Belafonte had say-so in the guest list that week and called in a lot of his friends including MLK, Aretha, Paul Newman, Bill Cosby, Sidney Poitier, Petula Clark, Dionne Warwick, The Smothers Brothers, Buffy Sainte Marie and more.

Joan Walsh wrote about that week of tV in an article for The Nation back in 2017.

Halfway through this set.  I forgot how frequently "laugh til it hurts" funny this show was.  Great acting and great writing.  The late Bill Henderson even showed up in one episode here.  And wise (possibly expensive)  use of music.  At the end of the episode where Earl gets out of prison, they used a version of Dylan singing "I Shall Be Released".  It fit the tone of the scene well without being too over the top.

Season 4 had some great guest stars including Danny Glover (as Crabman's father), Seth Green, Jerry Van Dyke, Betty White, David Arquette, Beau Bridges and Geraldo Rivera (as himself, hosting the 2 part Inside Probe investigative news program in which we discover that Randy's full name is Randall Doo Hickey, Catalina hails from the troubled south-of-the-border community of Guadalatucky and Joy is identified as "Stay-At-Trailer Mom").  While it's never explained exactly where Camden lies, I think it is somewhere between Mayberry and Springfield.  While this show had writing every bit as good as The Simpsons in its glory days, it also had the heart and sense of community from The Andy Griffith Show.

This scene -- Randy learns that Earl's ex-wife Joy was his first summer crush from decades ago (she only knew him as "Skipper" and he knew her as "Pinky") and since Earl broke them up way back when, he has to cross Randy off "his list" by having Joy agree to give him that first kiss denied him as a boy.  Add in John Prine and I was weeping in a happy way.
