    What a wonderful treat. I spent the morning raking leaves and it was lovely to take a break and watch these two gifted performers. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks, Bobbi! I’m so glad (but not surprised) that you share my love for these two brilliant performers. It is such a joy to me to find these gems available online — and to see that they are even better than I remembered!

    I thought this was a highly unlikely duo– Burnett’s voice couldn’t possibly keep up with Andrews’ and Andrews was too stiff and regal to relate to Burnett– yet, somehow they work together beautifully. Thanks for a great clip.

    I think they were as surprised as anyone how well their chemistry worked on and off-stage when they made this in 1962. They became the closest of friends and did another terrific concert together in 1989.

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community. Last week's episode may have been the all-time best (SPOILER ALERT)

Comic-Con 2014
It's here!  San Diego Comic-Con begins Wednesday night in San Diego and I'll be there.  This is my favorite event of the year, a chance to find out what everyone will be watching, listening to, playing, and otherwise enjoying over the next few years.  As I always say, this is the Iowa caucuses of

Wish I Was Here
My intention was to review Zach Braff's new film without mentioning the controversy he stirred up in funding it via Kickstarter.  My view was that what mattered was the movie itself, and the kerfluffle over how it was all paid for was beside the point.  But it turns out that it is the point.  "Sc
