Linda, I haven't checked that show out yet, but I have a question.
Are the stories in each episode one-offs or is it a continuing storyline.
Or does it combine a one-off for each episode along with a continuing
storyline. I guess that's three choices.


The stories in each episode are one off's with the personal lives of the two main characters being a continuing story. The female detective, Lizzie Needham, lost her fiance, who was also a detective, and she is still dealing with this, and Dr. Dylan Reinhart, who is an exCIA  operative, a professor, and a best selling author whose book is on abnormal behavior. His partner who quit law to open up a bar, is his salvation, and they have had their story in each episode.

As the episodes have progressed, we have found the viewer finds out more about each character, their past and their foibles. I enjoy watching it.

Saw this today, and have a lot of mixed emotions going on about it.   I will say I thought Al Pacino was great as Paterno.

review here.

Harry Anderson, ‘Night Court’ Star, Dies at 65

Harry Anderson, the amiable actor who presided over the NBC comedy “Night Court” for nine seasons, has died at his home in Asheville, N.C., according to a local media report. He was 65.

Anderson was found at his home by police officers early Monday , according to a report by WSPA-TV, the CBS affiliate in Spartanburg, S.C. No foul play was suspected, police told the station.

Anderson was a magician-turned-actor who was known as a rabid fan of jazz singer Mel Torme. The affection for Torme was woven into his TV alter ego, Judge Harry Stone, a quirky character who ruled the bench at a Manhattan night court. The sitcom was a mainstay of NBC from 1984 to 1992. Anderson earned three consecutive Emmy nominations for his work on the show from 1985-1987.

Anderson gained national attention after he guest starred as grifter Harry “the Hat” Gittes on NBC’s “Cheers” in the early 1980s. On “Night Court,” Anderson played a goofy but big-hearted judge who encountered a host of oddball characters and cases every week. The series also starred John Larroquette, Richard Moll, Charles Robinson, Marsha Warfield and Markie Post. Anderson also directed two episodes of the series and wrote or co-wrote five episodes during its long run.

I heard that this morning. They had a nice appreciation of him on the Today show.

I always enjoyed that show, the cast of characters was always too funny.  He'll be missed.

It's the last episode of "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story next week. There will have been 9 episodes ...and I have been riveted by the whole story.

The weakest character...for me.....is Donnatella ...played not very well by Penelope Cruz.

The young actor who plays Andrew Cunanan....Gianni's murderer has been brilliant.

Really worth a watch if you get the chance.

Stephanie March made a return appearance as Alexandra "Alex" Cabot, former ADA, on last night's episode of L&O: SVU.

I thought the plot was very interesting, centering on Alex helping women and their children to escape from abusive partners.

Maybe it's just because March played the ADA when I first began watching the series, but I still like her best of all the ADA's they've had.

Scott Porter was in the cast, too. Guy's put on weight since I last saw him on Scorpion.  ::) (IMDb says that was in 2016; I didn't think it was that long ago.)

I watched that episode, too, Jeff. Another one of those intriguing right & wrong, what would you do, moral dilemma
stories that can make one glad you don't have to make these decisions.
