  1. Debts don't make me laugh, but the comical element in Uninsured is provided mainly by the reverse situation by which younger parents have to take care of the older parents. So, laughing it is..

    United We Fall with the 'judgemental mother' who was supposed to leave but never left, sounds like a very promising family comedy.

    1. It will probably be hilarious now that they've got Fran, love her to bits! She was such a great part of my youth with The Nanny and I've always loved what she did later on as well. I bet she is popular in Israel as well, as her family in Nanny was hilariously Jewish, especially her mother and grandmother.

  2. I enjoyed seeing Jane Curtin as the literary agent in "Can You Ever Forgive Me" -- glad she'll be back on the small screen too!

    1. imagine if they were in a sitcom together! We will have to pray every day for their pilots to be ordered into series! I missed Jean Luc so much words cannot describe. And Fran is such a living legend, love her privately as well.

    2. While that would be lovely, as least we get two shows to look forward to instead of one. Double the fun and less heartbreak if one gets the ax.
