The second episode was pretty good, but Ellen Burstyn can't sing any better now than she did in Alice Doesn't Live Here Any More. A frivolous matter: I was impressed by Sigourney Weaver's bare arms. How many 63-year-old women do you know with arms like that? The political scenes are still more interesting than the domestic scenes, but TBS keeps pushing it as a family drama.

Good, complex Closer tonight, with one mention of the leak, in a dismissive way. This was the first Monday with no more Eureka and I'm suffering terrible withdrawal pains. frown
