Well, gee, if I look to see first what story gets the most comments and then write my blog about that, tonight’s winner is the archaeologist who did a bust of Caesar based on a composite of other busts of Caesar, except it doesn’t much look like any of them. I thought it looked like Bill Nighy – you remember, the down and out rock and roller from ‘Love, Actually.’ A lot of other people thought he looked like an alien.
Now, I’m kind of obsessed with a biopic about Caesar’s life which should, obviously, star Bill Nighy.
Which brings us to another topic. After they canceled the Roseanne show, more than one of my Facebook friends suggested that they keep the show, just kick Roseanne off and call it ‘The Conners.’ Well, I don’t know if the studio execs were listening or if it was just such a great idea everybody thought of it at once, but it did strike me as a cool coincidence when studio execs announced just that.
I’d never actually seen the show. I liked the original Roseanne, and she was definitely the heart of it. Whether or not this new one succeeds will be down to the writers. The actors are all good enough, but without smart-assed Roseanne, I don’t know that the show will have any pizzazz at all.
I just hope the write her out in a funny way. Choking on a piece of chicken at Popeye’s maybe. Getting run over by a Fox News van. Abducted by aliens, maybe?
Anyway, Roseanne Barr (the actress, not the character), is unemployed and, as far as comedy is concerned, damn near unemployable. But, Sarah Huckabee Sanders can’t keep up her bullshit forever. I think that job would be a natural for Roseanne.
