Dumb-Ass-Monkey: Rose McGowan Loveslave: Post and "Mac" also played Cam Diaz's parents in there's something about mary.

So, you think all black people look alike?

I suppose you think this is Mac, too!

[www.trbimg.com image 260x290]
There's nothing wrong with that name.

I just saw John Larroquette do a guest role in some show and damn, he's still really good. He should be in more shiat.


He was great in 'Chuck'

FirstNationalBastard: Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener:

coco ebert: Yes, we must all respect the venerable Theme Song. It is hallowed ground within pop culture.

I mourn the art of the Theme Song as it is now.

Always a hurry, hurry, hurry with new shows, no time for a theme song.

Heaven help us all when/if Psych abandons theirs.



Actually, USA has been keeping the theme song tradition alive. Psych, Monk, Suits...

In fact, Cable is where the theme songs migrated to, along with quality dramas. Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, the USA shows... they all have recognizable theme songs.



You can't get more recognizable than the theme song to 'Justified'
That weird country rap thing.

YES!

I love Gangstagrass's song for Justified.

I wish they could use the whole theme song EVERY episode, but that's not a realistic option. Ah, well. (some swearing, possibly not-safe-for-work, definitely not The Final Countdown)

Never missed an episode of NC and must have watched them 4-5 times over thanks to syndication.

RIP Reinhiold

acefox1: The episode with Michael Richards as the invisible burglar is amazing.

Not for his performance but for being in a show where not one but two other actors towered over him.

/Never realized how tall John Larroquette was before that scene. Dang!


Apparently a whole lot of the cast (Harry, Mac, Bull, and Dan) ranged from 6'3" to 6'8", and there was an episode called "Nuts About Harry" that guest starred James Cromwell and Kevin Peter Hall, who is better known as the Predator.

My nostalgia for The A-Team is probably what has kept me watching Burn Notice. Sure it has ridiculous and repetitive plots, but it's basically A-Team: Miami.

But unlike the A-Team....let's just say the plot changed a bit (won't spoil it for ya). The A-Team was still technically "on the run" in the last season or two.

I'm up to date on Burn Notice. The plot hasn't really change that much, even this season. They always a have their job of the week to do, along with minimal advancement of the master plot. Thankfully, the master plot finally ran out of "the bigger bad guy behind the bad guy", but it's still the same basic show.

Speaking of Laroquette, there's a wacky comedy from 1990 (?) with Kirstey Alley called Madhouse. Real cornball, but Laroquette and Alley make it very watchable.

"We ate the Necco wafers."
Oh, sweet Jesus, that's awesome.

Night Court had some great recurring characters on it. The Wheelers are a couple of the best. Personally, I always loved whenever John Astin showed up. Then there was Dan's homeless lackey for the first couple seasons.

And who can forget Yakov (Link)

There's nothing wrong with that name.

I just saw John Larroquette do a guest role in some show and damn, he's still really good. He should be in more shiat.

Did you know that he was the prologue voice over in the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"?

There was an episode of Night Court where he was watching television, and you heard the prologue and he said, "Eh, I've seen this already."

Also, I absolutely loved him in "The John Larroquette Show." Then again, I'm a big fan of finding humor in dark places.

When I was a fan of Night Court in the 1980s, it was like my hobby was finding Larroquette's pre-Night Court roles. He had a couple of lines as an unmasked Klansman in the Twilight Zone movie. Also, this is him. And, of course, Stripes.

Markie Post was harder to find, but A&E, before the network became all "Look at the freakshow" all the time, they often played a crappy movie late at night called "Massarati and the Brain." "Hoarders" marathons were a step up.

"Reinhold?"


And how could you have TOTALLY MISSED the time he played a Klingon???

Judging from his picture he was a hardcore motherfarking drinker and is probably lucky to have made it to 63, which really isn't as young as some people may think.

Oh, sweet Jesus, that's awesome.

It's kind of a shame Spiner ended up getting somewhat typecast after TNG, but you take what comes I guess.

On the other hand, put him in makeup and uncredited, and he rocks the screen. (ID4, Dude, Where's My Car?)

I remember an episode where Hurricane Mel(!) hit NYC, and I rolled my eyes at that as sitcom silliness that 1) hurricanes don't come close to Manhattan and 2) they'll never get all the way to the "M"s in any given year.

According to IMDB the man hasn't worked since 1990. So he managed to pretty much retire at 40, which I think is a dream for most of us. Retire while we're young enough to enjoy it.

He was terrific as White House Counsel Lionel Tribbey on the West Wing. Oliver Platt was better, but not by much.

God, I loved that show.

Also, I think the first time I ever saw the scrumptious Ms. Sela Ward was on NC when she played a friend of Christine's. Thank you, Mr. Weege; may you R.I.P.
