  1. The Three of Us will have a pretty cast. Hope it is good.

    Jury Duty sounds like it will be frustrating. I can't imagine being on jury duty (have always gotten out of it here) let alone watching jurors bicker for an entire season.

    1. I thought jury duty was a one off thing, do they take them for a whole year? I thought it is just one case and then you are free.

    1. It won't be an episode, dear, it will be nonscripted reunion, just actors gathered in the studio and talking about their old days.

  3. All three sound OK, but nothing that makes me EEP with excitement. I wonder what they will do with Jury Duty after they order lunch and decide on a verdict?

    1. I'm guessing they will never really decide on the verdict LOL that would be the comedy in that comedy.
