Both funny and true.
I recently discovered that I can watch Johnny Carson, free, around the clock. Sure, he had a some slow spots, but on average, his show was better than almost everything that's on now.
This is part of Shout Factory TV where you can also watch old Carol Burnett shows--not my taste, but lots of people loved her--the Marx Brothers TV collection, the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts, and much more.
They weren't all winners--Cyndi Lauper, ugh; Milli Vanilli, double ugh. But there were an awful lot of really good times then as this 4.5 minute nicely done video makes clear.
My takeaway is that professional stylists, hair, and makeup folks--at least some of them--are worth their pay.
Nobody writes dialogue like he does.
Interesting. Only one did Jerry label a putz and that may well have been a joke. (6.5 minute video.)
Interesting short Harvard Business Review interview of Jerry Seinfeld. This is especially good:
You and Larry David wrote Seinfeld together, without a traditional writers’ room, and burnout was one reason you stopped. Was there a more sustainable way to do it? Could McKinsey or someone have helped you find a better model?
It’s a consulting firm.
Are they funny?
Then I don’t need them. If you’re efficient, you’re doing it the wrong way.
Well, golden retrievers make most things better.
Interesting Quora discussion.
It’s not asking for “good shows”. They need to be shows that have “FINISHED”, and not only are satisfying along the way, but also have a satisfying ending.
For all your restricted-to-your-dwelling needs. I can recommend highly The Wire, Seinfeld, and The Sopranos.
