John Ross was busy being dragged to the owner’s suite at the Dallas Cowboys game and getting told by J.R. that he’d now have his power of attorney for a while since the elder John Ross would be flying away for a bit. Think he’s going to get the signature of the real Marta Del Sol to make the whole deal legit? We’ll see. John Ross, ever seeking his daddy’s approval, was all too happy to peacock in front of Bobby and tell him he and Ann could stay on the ranch as long as they wanted. But we really loved the exchange between J.R. and Ann, when she told him in even in her wildest imagination, she didn’t think he could be quite this devious. J.R.: “Well, Ann, you’re just gonna have to work on your imagination.”

    What do you guys think of THE NEWSROOM?

    We talked about it a little amongs ourselves – Myndi still hasn’t seen episode 2 as of this writing. I’m not quite on board yet – I feel like I’m being lectured, and the fact that the show seems poised to have a confrontational interview every week means a weekly straw man to get shredded by Sorkin’s stand-in. (It’s something that’s always bugged me about his TV work.) Still, the characters are mostly appealing, so I’m waiting it out for a bit yet. And in the interest of full disclosure, I may not be giving it a fair shake because of Sorkin’s oft-reiterated belief that Internet writers are all bitter failures. That’s always in the back of my head.

    hellooo-
    one gentle question: wtf is a turd wig?

    i’ve googled and googled, and found no absolute reference that makes any sense, but i did learn a new bar joke.

    please educate your humble commenter.

    First off, I apologize for anything you may have learned by Googling “Turd Wig”.

    It’s actually a line from last week’s “Bunk” – at one point the announcer said “We’re gonna need a turd wig because sh*t is getting ugly.” And since we keep it classy around here, I couldn’t possibly pass that up as a title.

    I don’t know if it makes any MORE sense now, but that’s where we got it from.

    How we long for the simpler days of “Beefsquatch!” Thanks for reading, cub! Larry–I promise to get caught up on Newsroom in the next couple days and give you my thoughts…I don’t have quite the same issues with Sorkin, though I completely see what EJ is saying. I felt that way with Studio 60, for sure.

  6. cub says:

    EJ and Myndi,
    thanks for answering. i watch CB!B! but avoid BUNK due to gross foot phobia and that guy’s voice– (neither of which bothered me/were present when he worked w/K.Schall, iirc)–beefsquatch, indeed!

    Working with Kristin Schall makes everybody more appealing!
