A friend says he his making, "Pork chops in brown butter, garlic, sage sauce. Asparagus and baby yukons on the side."
My first thought is,
"Will there be applesauce?"
As in Bobby Brady on the Brady Bunch saying "pork chops and applesauce." in the voice of Humphrey Bogart.
Anyone else have that same memory trigger when you hear pork chops?

A case of overly high, unrealistic expectations on my part.
The adulation by a doorstop biographer and some "why, WTF" interview questions were grinding, but the slowly typed out tweets followed by a chirp did me in.
Damn #documentary equivalent to the #sitcom laugh track.
Summary: A union busting right-winger who loves fart and penis jokes and whose defenders wield bullying as a kid as a shield.

"Welcome Back" is a popular record that was the #themeSong of the 1970s American television #sitcom #WelcomeBackKotter. Written and recorded by former #LovinSpoonful frontman #JohnSebastian, it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for one week in May 1976 after only five weeks on the chart, and also topped the #adultContemporary chart (the show itself had become an instant ratings success upon its premiere the previous fall).
✡️ Today's Jew of the Day is Rain Pryor!
Rain Pryor is probably best known for being Richard Pryor's daughter, but she has had a full career on her own, including as an actor and award winning plawyright, and even musician!
Many of us may remember Pryor as TJ from the sitcom "Head of the Class", Pyror went on to do other acting work, but the most notable production was writing and starring in Fried Chicken and Latkes, a solo show about growing up Black and Jewish in the 1960s and 1970s in California.
"Alone" is a song composed by #BillySteinberg and #TomKelly, who recorded it under the name i-Ten on their 1983 album #TakingAColdLook. It was later recorded by actress Valerie Stevenson and actor #JohnStamos on the original soundtrack of the #CBS #sitcom #Dreams in 1984. American #rock band #Heart covered it on their 1987 album #BadAnimals, and this version reached number one in the US and Canada. In 2007 #CelineDion recorded it for her album #TakingChances.
I subscribed to Paramount Plus to catch up on Star Trek stuff and I was pleasantly surprised that they had Detroiters which is one of the funniest shows Comedy Central ever made. It's a Tim Robinson and Sam Richardson show and if you enjoy I Think You Should Leave on Netflix you'll like this sitcom about a couple dumb guys running an ad agency!
An absolutely amazing animation, highlighted by Seekerofsplendor, where over 130 artists have collaborated to recreate a single episode of the American sitcom 'Fraiser'.
✅ A very silly episode about a top secret celebrity DnD game, but I had no problem with the silliness because it was consistently making me laugh. Particularly in the second half when the girls got in on the act.

"Living Single" debuted 30 years ago today...
Second draft. Let's try this again:
Nine seasons, till the series ends,
The comic and his crazy friends
Drink coffee, talk and make their clever
Jokes, but nothing happens, ever…
Till, under good samaritan laws,
Their selfish foibles and their flaws
Revealed, each one is judged to be
A menace to society.
Poor little rich boys. (And hats off to whoever thought of a Carvel cake to broker peace. Even without that inspired little touch, the #sitcom writes itself.)
‘What Are You Going to Do About It, Fat Boy?’: How a Hamptons Feud Between Two Uber-Privileged Art Dealers Exploded Into an All-Out Turf War:
J’avais bien aimé The Big Bang Theory et j’étais un peu sceptique pour Young Sheldon, mais on a tenté le coup. Pas de regrets, c’était dans le même esprit et aussi très plaisant.
Alors attention, c’est de la sitcom à l’ancienne, tant sur la forme que le fond. Il faut accepter ce côté vieillot, mais j’ai trouvé ça drôle et attachant, comme l’originale.
In this week's podcast, we play THE NAME GAME!
There's more than one "Alan Katz" in Hollywood. More than two, in fact! In this episode, a couple Alan Katz's get together to plot against the world and swap show biz stories!
The "other" Allan Katz has an amazing bio.
He wrote classic TV shows All In The Family, Sanford & Son, Rhoda, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Roseanne, Blossom & a little show called MASH.
And along the way, Allan rubbed shoulders with everyone from ORSON WELLES to the MONTY PYTHON troupe to THE BEATLES.
A great, funny storyteller with heaps of great, funny stories. What could be better?
New post: 1990s Black sitcoms on streaming and home video
I am afraid the Frasier reboot will be a failure. I hope not, but people didn't watch Frasier for Frasier. It was the cast ensemble around Fraiser that people came to watch.
There are big shoes to fill with no Martin, Niles, Eddie and Daphne.
🔗 Frasier's Revival Is Already Disrespecting 1 Great Character From The Original Show
If you’re about my age you’ll remember #welcomebackkotter a 1970s #sitcom set in #brooklyn It was John Travolta’s breakout role. The opening #montage sequence featured a shot of a sign that used to stand on #beltparkway that said “Welcome to Brooklyn, Fourth Largest City in America”. Did you know that that sign hangs in the lobby of Brooklyn #borough hall? #newyorkcity #nyc #gabekaplan #johntravolta #sweathogs
A new General Knowledge Quiz has just been posted on our website!
I may be mostly damaging my brain with atonal avant-garde chamber music & free jazz during the day, but in the evenings I've been rewatching the gentler As Time Goes By with Judi Dench. All hail writer Bob Larbey. The Good Life, Ever Decreasing Circles, A Fine Romance.
I'm not a fan of sitcoms generally, but for some reason I can watch the 4 mentioned above again & again. They're like a pot of tea, a hot water bottle & a blanket. Cosy. Mainstream/family comedy writing at its best.
It’s a #Sitcom sort of mood this weekend.
I loved #Community, #ModernFamily, #30Rock, #TheITCrowd, #FullerHouse, #KimsConvenience, #SchittsCreek, #TheGoodPlace, #CougarTown, #Frasier, #UnbreakableKimmySchmidt, #Superstore, and #Brooklyn99 when they were still on air.
Both episodes of Ministry Of Happiness - a sitcom about the first BBC radio station in Wales - are now available on BBC Sounds. Just follow the link:
I also did some live tweet-alongs over at the other place, with the facts which inspired the show - but leaving links to those here feels somehow disrespectful. But the key bit is - more of it is true than you'd expect!
Still on the fence with the '70s Show and Night Court reboots, but I am *not* on the fence with the laugh tracks. They're just awful.
This seems like a true slam dunk. I've never talked to anybody who was in favor of laugh tracks. Can't we just leave them behind?
Thank you for this day. 🌇
