Cheers + Taxi + Seinfeld + some tubby kid I've never heard of = What exactly?

Not a bad cast but the make or break will be the writing.

Jesus Christ.  She's farking terrible.. like this walking monstrosity of a human. I dislike everything about her except how she looked in Star Trek II.

And she's got Michael Richards. Hooray. Paycheque required!

The Encyclopedia of Intestinal Blockage was already taken.

Good cast and she makes me laugh.

Fat Actress was one of the funniest shows of the last twenty years.

I bet she smells like prison sex...

Sounds like if the writing is good it will be seen as a bold new name. And if it isn't, it just won't be seen, for long.

From what I've seen, Hot in Cleveland is the best of the lot of these "Get people from 80s & 90s sitcoms and give them a weak script" shows on TV Land.  So, I'm not expecting much here either.   I watched about 10 minutes of the Fran Drescher one, it was horrid.

Good to see that this show is so awful they've given Michael Richards work.

Yeah, Fat Actress was pretty hilarious.

They should call it "Kirstie's Weight Loss Roller-coaster"
 
2013-02-16 10:31:53 PM  
I like Kirstie Alley. I don't care what her friggin weight is.

And it will be great to see Rhea Perlman again. She's awesome.
 
2013-02-16 10:53:31 PM  
It'll be on TV Land, which translates to a run in perpetuity-and relative oblivion-regardless of its quality.


I've no problem with this.
 
2013-02-16 11:05:20 PM  
I dunno, she has always had a je ne sais quoi.
 
2013-02-16 11:08:17 PM  
Anyone vaguely remember 'Veronica's Closet'?
 
2013-02-16 11:14:33 PM  
Don't Michael, Rhea, and Kristie still have residual checks coming in? They must really crave fame, work, or enough cocaine to bury New York.
 
2013-02-17 12:06:37 AM  
According to Kristie.

I Love Kristie.

Everybody Loves Kristie.
 
2013-02-17 12:31:01 AM  
Well, probably better than "Giant Baby" - the original title of the show.

texdent: Anyone vaguely remember 'Veronica's Closet'?


I do. Lasted only a few years, still went through changes ... Wait, I think I'm thinking of "Suddenly, Susan."

/never mind
//Brooke Shields, you owe me a dollar for bringing up the name of your show in a public place.

Jene Sais Quoi was my favorite Star Trek captain.

Engage!
 
2013-02-17 04:43:43 AM  
Lemme guess,  Now that she has her own tv show she can use it to invite all her $cientology friends and promote their stupid cult ?

//Hail Xenu !!!

As was "Whale Rider".

Michael Roberts is still (in my mind) the guy who shouts n****r at people and thinks it is funny.

$cientologists also get no respect in my book.

Rhea Pearlman always makes me smile when I think of her, but she won't be enough to make me change my mind about the other two.

You mean the 'white' guy who shouts it in a lame, last grasp Don Ricklesesque moment when he realized stand up was actual work. Whereas other borderline black actor/name can repeatedly shout disparaging remarks about other races and 'it's empowerment' and therefore worthy of acclaim or other easily dismissed act.

Yeah, bad, bad, BAD Michael Roberts (or Richards - if you know how to demonize a guy for a single moment of question....)

seenonradio: $cientologists also get no respect in my book.



One thing scieno actors all seem to do - it's not limited to them, but they kinda seem to do it more than 'normal' actors - is overindulge in just one trademark camera-mugging pose. See tfa for a great example.


/yeah, I know, "normal actors" is probably an oxymoron
 
2013-02-17 09:08:42 AM  
So she was too good to do Star Trek 3 & 4 but she'll do shiat like this?

I don't care what black comedians say about white people. It's not injurious. The N word is, however.

Well, she was at the top of her game, and wanted by Cheers fans back then.

Now.... Not so much.

I agree - the only thing it injures is the ridiculous notion of "equality".

Not only are you an idiot, but you also have no knowledge of the incident you are using to demonize someone. The guys (who were heckling him) more than had it coming.

No, sorry. Calling someone a 'stupid asshole' is one thing. Or using your comedy skills to skewer them is also awesome. Pulling out the word that says "My ancestors built this nation on your ancestor's torment so I'm better than you" is completely unacceptable.

Does the word "cracker" or "honky" have any effect on you whatsoever? No? Because racism thrown at the majority that enjoys privilege has no effect.

Eh, she wasn't on Cheers yet back then. Although if that were true, she'd be the anti-Shelly Long. Shelly quit Cheers to be a movie star and Kirsty would have refused a movie to focus on Cheers. The yin and the yang. And the coke head would have been the smart one.

I thought Fat Actress was funny. I may watch this.

Yeah. ST:3 was 1984 and she didn't join Cheers until 1987. She declined the role in the 3rd movie because she thought she would get typecast.

Well, oops. Now she has been typecast as the fat B-lister. That sucks.
