Cagney & Lacey break matzah together
March 29th, 2021 under Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly, Uncategorized. [ Comments: 1 ]

Back in 1981, Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly started fighting crime together as Cagney & Lacey. Now, 40 years later, they are celebrating the first night of Passover together.

“My partner-in-crime and I,” Gless wrote. “Celebrating Seder after being badly burned by the Florida sun. We have traded our guns for masks. I love Tyne Daly. We still crack one another up.”

If I were a network head, I would bring the crime drama back as a comedy with the two of them busting the neighbors in their retirement community. Those over 55ers can be really dangerous!

BTWF: Sharon Gless on Ironside

Before Sharon Gless was investigating crimes on Cagney and Lacey, she was a victim of a crime on Ironside. How gorgeous was the 30-year-old in that 1973 episode?

Murphy Brown takes on #MeToo and it is must watch episode
October 11th, 2018 under Candice Bergen, CBS, Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly. [ Comments: none ]


Last week, Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault from his teenage years, was confirmed to be a Supreme Court Justice. People kept saying, “Why come forward 36 years later?” Or they would say, “She has no proof.” I guess they were never sexually assaulted or harassed, so they do not understand what it was like in the old days. Tonight at 9:30p on CBS, Murphy Brown shows us what was like years ago as compared to now and why women did not say anything back then.

The episode starts off with the staff of Murphy in the Morning having to go through sexual harassment training. Something Miles (Grant Shaud) needs because he is hitting on a female employee. Murphy (Candice Bergen) does not think she needs to go because it is her show. That is when she reminded what happened to a few other people…

After the class, Frank (Joe Regalbuto) realizes he might need some help and Pat (Nik Dodani) has an app he created that might help him. If he says something inappropriate, then it buzzes him. Side note, someone needs to make this app real!

Anyways, Murphy, Miles and Corky (Faith Ford) go to the bar, and the latter talks about the times she was sexually harassed when she was first starting out. That strikes a nerve with Murphy and causes her to remember something that happened to her when she was younger.

Later that day, Avery (Jake McDorman) realizes that something is off with his mom (with a line that will make you LOL), so he asks her what her what is going on. She tells him and he explains to her what happened to her is not her fault. But it is still weighing on her.

She goes to the bar and talks to Phyllis (Tyne Daly). The bartender, who does not like give her advice, gives her some. She needs to confront her attacker. That is when she decides to see him and confront him about their past.

What happens next is something everyone needs to see. It might show all of these people, who cannot understand the #MeToo movement, why it is so important. Why he said/she said is not just perceived as he said. For the first time in history, she said being heard just as loud if not louder.

Tonight, I highly suggest to everyone, to watch Murphy Brown because it is a real eye-opener. It shows us how the women of today feel empowered that what happened in their past is not their fault. They should not be ashamed. That they are victims and not their assaulters. Maybe if this aired last week, Kavanaugh would not be on SCOTUS. Which he should not be but that is a whole other episode.

The Queer As Folk cast reunited!
June 8th, 2018 under Queer As Folk, Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly. [ Comments: none ]


For the first time since Queer as Folk ended in 2005, the whole cast got together to talk about how groundbreaking their show was then and still is today. Scott Lowell told Entertainment Weekly, “We stopped making this 90 years ago, and people are still…discovering it for the first time and think it is real.” Then he added, “That this felt, in an odd way like a docudrama. To a world, many people knew nothing about and now they do. Now they are as passionate about those issues as anybody.” Issues like hate crimes, coming out, same-sex marriages, HIV, crystal meth in the gay community and so much more.

These issues felt real because of the way that Brian (Gale Harold), Justin (Randy Harrison) Emmett (Peter Paige), Ted (Lowell), Justin (Randy Harrison), Lindsay (Thea Gill), Melanie (Michelle Clunie), Ben (Rober Gant) Michael (Hal Sparks) and Debbie (Sharon Gless) portrayed each storyline that was given to them. This cast might not have not all been in the same place for 13 years, but they still look as close as they did when they were all spending the night out at Babylon. Of course, that was before the nightclub was blown up.

On that note, I am surprised that this show has not been picked up for a revival because the Babylon explosion was, in some ways, like what happened at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, a hate crime against the LGBTQ community. Not only that, so many topics that they touched on back then are, sadly, relevant again. Plus, CowLip (Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman) are brilliant at expressing important messages through the writing they do for each of their characters.

Plus, I miss watching naked men. When Harold was asked why so many straight women watch the show, he told the interviewer that just like how men like watching two women going at it, so do women like seeing two men have sex. At that moment, I realized why I watched and love this show. It still remains one of my all-time favorite series to this day. Or as Paige puts it, “I often say people came for the queer, but they stayed for the folk.”

It was the first show that was based on an almost all gay cast of characters. Until QAF, there would be a homosexual character on a show, but this one was all about several same-sex couples. It opened the door for some many shows to do the same. Not just because they were the first do it, but because they did it so right. And because the characters did it a lot. Sorry, back to the important things they covered.

Seriously, this is a show that we once again need on our televisions, and it bogs my mind why they are not doing new episodes. C’mon Robert Greenblatt, bring back the baby you only had for a little time on Showtime.

A mini Queer As Folk reunion!
June 27th, 2017 under Queer As Folk, Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly. [ Comments: none ]


Over the weekend, Queer As Folk’s Debbie and Michael Novotny were reunited, and Sharon Gless and Hal Sparks still look like the loving mother and son they played on the Showtime drama.

So much so, I do not know why no one has brought the show back for a revival. Seriously, if any show deserves it, it is this one. So much has happened in the LGBTQ community since the show went off the air in 2005, I would love to see how the cast of characters would tackle those issues today. Well that and I really miss the show. Plus, it was eye candy and what girl does not like watching two guys go at it? I know QAF taught me that little lesson.

Seriously though, QAF was much more than sex. It was wonderful writing, great chemistry, excellent acting and show with important messages to get out there. Each week they found a way to tell an interesting story that was also informative. We need more shows like it on television and bringing it back would be a good start. Who is with me?
