Chuck Lorre gets serious with Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin
October 12th, 2018 under Chuck Lorre, Michael Douglas, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]


Chuck Lorre has given us some of the biggest comedies over the last 30 years: Dharma & Greg, Grace Under Fire, Cybill, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly, Mom and Young Sheldon. That is a lot of funny television.

Now he is teaming up with Netflix to give us a dramedy starring two huge movie legends. Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are partnering up in The Kominsky Method. The show is being described as, “On November 16, meet Sandy (Michael Douglas) and Norman (Alan Arkin), two lifelong friends who are navigating the ups and downs of life with humor, dignity, and some prostate trouble – reminding us that some friendships never get old.”

I think all of Lorre’s sitcoms have been leading up to this one show. The show that will finally change the perception that so many people have of him and realize he is one of the greatest executive producers to ever work in television.

Now the only thing I want to is will he do Vanity Cards for it?

The Big Bang Theory’s 12th season will be its last
August 22nd, 2018 under Chuck Lorre, Kaley Cuoco, Mayim Bialik. [ Comments: none ]


After season ten, CBS picked up The Big Theory for two more seasons. Now that they are into that second season, people have been wondering will its 12th season be its last one.

Today, we got the answer and this will be their final season. WBTV and Chuck Lorre set this statement to The Hollywood Reporter, “We are forever grateful to our fans for their support of The Big Bang Theory during the past twelve seasons. We, along with the cast, writers and crew, are extremely appreciative of the show’s success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring The Big Bang Theory to an epic creative close.”

It is interesting that they are ending the sitcom because it was the #1 scripted show last season. You would think everyone at the network and the studio will do everything it can to keep it going as long as they can.

Having said that as someone who has watched every episode, I am OK with ending. It has had run its course and I hope it goes out like it came in. By making us laugh.

How do you feel about The Big Bang Theory ending its hugely successful run?

UPDATE: Kaley Cuoco had this to say about the show ending, “This ride has been a dream come true and as life changing as it gets. No matter when it was going to end , my heart would have always been broken in two. Drowning in tears, we promise to bring you the best season yet. To the fans, our crew, families, Chuck Lorre, Warner Brothers, CBS, and everyone who has supported us for so many years, thank you. We are goin out with a bang 💫”

Charlie Sheen pitches a Two and a Half Men revival
May 29th, 2018 under Charlie Sheen, Chuck Lorre. [ Comments: 1 ]


The Roseanne revival was barely even cancelled when Charlie Sheen offered up his two cents. He wrote, “adios Roseanne! good riddance. hashtag NOT Winning. the runway is now clear for OUR reboot. © #CharlieHarperReturns.”

His co-star, Jon Cryer, had one simple question to that notion, “What could possibly go wrong?” I would simply use the words of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and say, “Let me count the ways.”

What makes this so Hollywood is a small world, is the Roseanne revival’s EP is Bruce Helford, who worked on Charlie Sheen’s last sitcom Anger Management. 2.5 Men was created by Chuck Lorre, who wrote for Roseanne the original time around. So it is like Hollywood coming full circle if it were to happen.

When it comes to will Hollywood pick this up? They got rid of one headache today, why would they give themselves another one? Even though I would welcome it.

Jerry O’Connell and Jim Parsons are becoming like brothers?
May 11th, 2018 under Broadway, Chuck Lorre, Jerry O'Connell/Rebecca Romijn. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday, while you, me and millions of other people tuned in to see Sheldon get married to Amy on The Big Bang Theory, neither Jim Parsons nor his TV brother Jerry O’Connell were watching it. What were Sheldon and Georgie Cooper doing that was so important that they would miss their own/brother’s wedding?

Parsons is on the other side of the country starring in The Boys in the Band with Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto and Andrew Rannells for the next couple of months; and O’Connell went to see his little TV brother in the Broadway play that is being produced by Ryan Murphy.

When O’Connell got out of the show, he wrote, “OVERWHELMED by my baby brother @therealjimparsons in @boysbandbway. Go see this play this summer. Wow. Wow. Just wow. I LOVE YOU. 5 points.”

Who knew that by playing brothers, you actually become like brothers? Look how gosh darn precious they are together? Maybe the producers will bring him back on TBBT more often? Sheldon can use a lot more brotherly advice, now that Young Sheldon revealed that Shamy will have kids in the future. What did you think of that reveal?

It’s time for the Big Bang wedding as Meemaw finds love on Young Sheldon!
May 10th, 2018 under Chuck Lorre. [ Comments: none ]


Next weekend is the Royal wedding, but us Yanks have one tonight at 8p on CBS. Not only that, The Big Bang Theory one is just as star-studded. Maybe even more so?

It is the day before the wedding and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) is assigning who does what. She is going to pick up Amy’s (Mayim Bialik) parents played by Kathy Bates and Teller. While Raj (Kunal Nayyar) has to pick up Sheldon’s Mom (Laurie Metcalf) and sister (Courtney Henggeler) from the airport. Poor Penny did not realize she gave Raj the easier job because Amy’s mom is hard-to-handle. Between us, Teller steals every scene he is in. Now that immediate family including George (Jerry O’Connell) is at Penny and Leonard’s (Johnny Galecki) apartment, it is time to get ready for the wedding.

Wil Wheaton is going to officiate the nuptials, so he is getting ready for the task. That is until Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) has a chance encounter with Mark Hamill. Who will get the honor or marrying Shamy? And that is not the only thing postponing the vows.

Tonight’s episode does not only bring a much-anticipated wedding and several guest stars, it also brings a lot of laughs. So many, I want to see spinoffs for George and his tire store, also one for the Fowlers and finally one with Mark Hamill and Wil Wheaton. They can call the last one HamWil! Seriously, everyone brings it tonight so be prepared to laugh for a half hour straight.


Then at 8:30p, things are going really well with MeeMaw (Annie Potts) and Dr. Sturgis (Wallace Shawn) on Young Sheldon. That is until Ira (Richard Kind) tells her he wants her back. Meemaw thinks she can date both guys at the same time, but Sheldon does not think so. What will he do to make sure that Meemaw keeps dating his mentor? Not everything he wants to because his mom (Zoe Perry) is smart enough to stop her genius son.

When I watched the Young Sheldon pilot, I was not impressed with the show. Then I kept watching it and it quickly became one of my favorite shows on television. It is such an endearing sitcom with sweet characters, you cannot help but to fall in love with it. It is the type of show you just want to hug!

Talking about hugging, who does not want to marry a guy like Dr. Sturgis? They have created a man who so awwwdorably cute that you just want to make him your own. If anyone knows a guy like that, send him my way. I promise I will be gentle!
