Host or No Host?
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  I must admit, I didn’t even notice that there was no host Sunday night for the Academy Awards. The opening musical number was fabulous – Queen with Adam Lambert was a "wow". Followed by three just plain funny women – Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. And then off to the awards! In my opinion, the show moved faster and with more inte

Serena
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  I didn’t see the whole exchange, but I have been fascinated by the story.   Serena was accused of cheating and reacted, loudly and strongly. She would never cheat to win she said. She would rather lose.     Serena accuses the umpire of sexism.     Her opponent, Naomi Osaka, who in her own words, wasn’t supposed to win, did just that. Then she

The Next Big Binge
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  I admit that periodically, I enjoy a good binge watch. My first ever binge was Mad Men. I couldn’t get enough. I almost missed my train stop more than once, absorbed in a particular story line as the E train pulled into the Fifth Avenue station.     Later, I ran through Orange is the New Black at an even quicker pace.     My current binge t

Broadway Here We Come
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  If you could pick just one Broadway show to see, what would it be?     We are big Broadway fans, most often musicals. We have seen Les Miserables multiple times and really loved Book of Mormon.     We are ready to expand our list. What are your suggestions?

When The Music Stopped
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  Bette kept on going.     Sunday night, Bette Midler won the coveted Best Actress in a Musical for her role in the revival of Hello Dolly. I happen to be a huge Bette Midler fan, so perhaps I am biased.     But I thought she looked wonderful and her speech was hilarious. Nothing was going to stop her. It went on for four minutes. Even when the

Quite A Mistake
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  I didn't watch most of the Oscars Sunday night, although it was on in the background for a while. I happened to sit down for the very end, just as Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were walking on stage to present the Best Picture award. I was really taken by Faye Dunaway's dress.     But when Warren Beatty seemed confused as he was preparing to a

The Selfie Phenomenon
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  Recently I saw a picture of Hilary Clinton at a public event. She was looking out at the crowd smiling and waving but the entire crowd had their backs to her with one arm up in the air. What were they doing, you ask? They were all trying to take a selfie with Hilary.     Selfies are a modern day phenomenon. Every where you go, someone has their

Who Makes You Laugh?
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  You may catch me giggling out loud on the Long Island Railroad. I am in the middle of Billy Crystal’s most recent book, “Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys?” Billy Crystal makes me laugh out loud. I think it is partly because he talks about his own experiences, and being from a Jewish family an

It's Jeopardy!
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  Jeopardy has been in my life since 1991. Truth be told, I had never been the biggest fan (and I never liked Alex Trebek). From the time I met my husband, however, 7 pm became hallowed time – the time when the television would go on and we would compete in the categories of the day. Jeopardy was and continues to be his game of choice. As the years

Big Bang Theory
Posted By : Nancy Schess

Do you watch? I do. Actually, my whole house watches. Since an episode airs just about every thirty minutes, we watch a lot. This show reminds of a quirky version of Friends, which I also watched religiously in its day. The ensemble cast has a rhythm uncharacteristic of such strong characters but it works here with great success. Repeatedly borrow

Sometimes You Really Can’t Go Home Again
Posted By : Nancy Schess

We used to be big Jay Leno fans. Tonight Show regulars. When Jimmy Fallon took over earlier this year, we were concerned. Jimmy was funny, but could he fill the large shoes that came before him – at least in our humble opinions? Rumors had it that Jay had been forced out (really twice) and that his appeal to large audiences was fading but not in

RIP Robin
Posted By : Nancy Schess

In my humble opinion, Robin Williams was one of the most talented human beings to have ever lived. You may disagree but a stroll down the long list of his accomplishments I believe supports my premise One episode on Happy Days in 1974 turned into a classic sitcom called Mork & Mindy in 1978. So many examples of the breadth of his talent follo

Alice
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  Please tell me that I am not alone. Ann B. Davis played the character of Alice on one of my all-time childhood TV shows, the Brady Bunch. (Don’t get me started – I’ll be talking about I Love Lucy next). Sadly, she passed away this weekend and that had me strolling down memory lane. I am actually a little fanatic about the show. I still sometime

Los Angeles Here We Come
Posted By : Nancy Schess

Recently, my son announced that he was planning to audition for “The Voice” – and win -- so we had better start preparing for a family trip to Los Angeles. That led to a conversation about which judge to choose if he became a contestant -- Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira or Usher? For the next several days, that’s right days, the conversat
