The Night Court cast got together to remember Harry Anderson
June 4th, 2018 under Reunions. [ Comments: 1 ]

On April 16th, Harry Anderson passed away suddenly, and over the weekend several cast and crew members from Night Court reunited to remember their friend.

Marsha Warfield was the last one to join the cast as a series regular, but it was as though she was there from the beginning of the sitcom. Roz shared some photos of herself with her former co-workers, actors Markie Post aka Christine Sullivan and John Larroquette aka Dan Fielding, and crew members Julie Dresner and Susie Gunter as they reminisced about their buddy. Not Buddy, his father on the courtroom comedy, played by John Astin, but Harry himself.

No other details were shared about their day, but it looks like they remembered Judge Harry T Stone just as he lived his life, with a huge smile. They have all said that the actor, magician and comedian always made them laugh on the set. Just like he always made us laugh on our TV sets.

Before Anderson passed away, I said I really wanted a Night Court revival. Seeing the cast looking all happy together and looking just as good now as they did then makes me think that it would have worked. Too bad, it was never meant to be.


Tony Orlando and Dawn reunite for a Christmas Miracle

Last month, ABBA announced that they are releasing new music together for the first time in 35 years. Yesterday. Tony Orlando and Dawn revealed they will be reuniting for a Christmas concert in Illinois on December 11th. It will be the first time in three years that Orlando, Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson will sing together.

At this rate, Disco will make like a Zombie and come back from the dead. That’s the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it. Yes, I know that is a KC and the Sunshine Band song, but it works better than untie that yellow ribbon ’round the ole oak tree.


A Good Morning, Miss Bliss reunion!

Back in 1987, we met Zack Morris, Lisa Turtle, Screech, and the students of Saved By the Bell needed to be saved by some adults. Those adults were Miss Bliss and Mr. Belding.

Thirty years after they started teaching those students, they had their thirtieth reunion and all we got is this photo of Hayley Mills and Dennis Haskins. I think it is a great gift. Especially since they both look so good and happy together. Maybe happy enough to bring back Saved By the Bell? Our Saturday mornings have been missing them.


Some of the Happy Days cast reunited to talk about the show
April 3rd, 2018 under 70s, Reunions. [ Comments: none ]

Marion Ross, or as we know her as Mrs C, was on Today today to talk about her memoir My Days: Happy and Otherwise. In the book, she revealed some secrets about the show, and they wanted to talk to her to about it. But they did not want her to do it alone, so they brought on Anson Williams and Donny Most to surprise her. It has been 44 years since they became a family on TV, and they still act like one. To me, it is chemistry like that, which is why we are still talking about the show and watching it in syndication.

Back to the secrets. For the first few years of the show, the 89-year-old actress (Doesn’t she look amazing for her age?) and her TV husband, the late Tom Bosley, did not get along. She speculates that he wanted someone else to play her role and that is why he was resistant to her at first. As time went on, they grew to love each other like the couple we watch on our small screens.

She wasn’t the only one revealing behind the scenes secrets. Anson Williams shared with the host that they shot a pilot for the sitcom a year earlier and it did not go. Due to the success of the movie American Graffiti and Grease on Broadway, the network decided to give it a second go. There was only one problem, they were not sure if Williams and Ron Howard were too old to play their roles. Both actors had to re-audition for their roles as Potsie and Richie Cunningham respectively. As we know, they once again landed their parts.

What about Ralph Malph? Most says that his character was not in the original script. The actor says that he gave such a great audition for Potsie, they created Ralph Malph just for him.

Three things you never knew about the show you thought you knew everything about. I don’t know about you, but I love learning things like this.


The cast of Grease 2 reunited for its 35th anniversary!
March 13th, 2018 under Reunions. [ Comments: 1 ]

Can you believe it has been 35 years since Grease 2 came out? The film that some deemed the worst sequel ever, while others said that it was better than the original.

Yesterday, the class of ’82 aka several cast members got together in Beverly Hills to celebrate the anniversary and watch their musical one more time. Who were the cool riders? The actors who went back to school again aka the screening were (from left to right) Alison Price Becker (Pink Lady Rhonda Ritter), Chris McDonald (T-Bird Goose McKenzie), Leif Green (T-Bird Davey Jaworski), Liz and Jean Sagal (Stacie & Gracie, Cheerleaders), Maxwell Caulfield (Michael Carrington) and the hair belongs to Maureen Teefy (Sharon). Adrian Zmed (T-Bird Johnny Nogerelli) was also there, but is not in the photos.

All of them look ready to Rock-a-Hula-Luau. It is as though no time has passed for any them, so why cannot we get a reunion movie out of them? We have been waiting 35 years for Grease 3, and now is the perfect time to bring it to the big screen.

Sadly, I did not know about this event until today, otherwise I would have totally gone with my pink lady jacket on and been a total fan girl like Baby Daddy’s Melissa Peterman. Because of not only the movie, but also when I was kid Double Trouble was my favorite show. I wanted to be just like Kate and Allison Foster. They were like so totally cool and it is great to see how beautiful they are today. Unlike their sister, Katy Sagal, who is in front of the camera, they work behind it now. Liz has worked as a writer for shows like Charmed, Monk and Sons of Anarchy while her twin Jean has been a director on 2 shows you have heard, Two and a Half Men and 2 Broke Girls.

Thank you so much to Stacey Levin for posting these photos and letting me know about the event…although a day late! I seriously cannot tell you enough how much these photos made my dad!
