It’s all good, “bro.” I find that I become physically ill if I try to exploit for personal gain any of my Extra Sensory Perception abilities. They can only be used to fight for Truth, Justice, and the Tellurian way.

Thanks, TigerFang. Yes, when I try to exploit my stupid power, it doesn't quite work out. But it's there when I don't try. So, anyhoo -- Also, I'm a woman.

Just tryin’ out that Gucci-talk thing; y’ know, like the old saying says: “When in Greenwich Village, do as the Pope of Greenwich Village does.”

What would you entitle the Thirtysomething reboot project?

LOL. Got it.

They'll probably just use the same title, and I would do that, too. But it would be funnier if the parents (played by the original actors) were the main characters and they called it Sixtysomething.

Bochco had pushed the envelope some with Hill Street Blues and LA Law and St. Elsewhere had done the same for medical dramas. but mostly it was Steven Cannell-style junk. the follow up that Z&H made (after exec producing My So Called Life), Once and Again was much better. criminally underrated and underseen, like most of them

(assuming this sequel does go to series, i'd KILL to write for it so if anyone has an in with Ed or Marshall, feel free to PM me)



Hey. I like that Stephen J. Cannell junk because 1) his production bumper got me into writing and 2) I couldn't relate to normal, average people who either cheated or were cheated on or went through a disease because I was a weird kid at the time.
