All in the Family and The Jefferson LIVE

Live in front of the audience was LIVE, but when Jamie Foxx, Oscar winner, acting as George Jefferson in the All in The Family, even his co-star Anthony Anderson and the rest of the cast either giggle or laugh, flubbed his lines. Jamie Foxx handles it like a professional. Woody, who played Archie Bunker, could not control his laughter, he turned around to hide his laughter, that’s what happened when you do live performance in front of millions of people either with the studio audience and TV audience. There was another one when George walks on Bently’s back the boom mic appears in the frame.

The only actors who were believable were Marisa Tomei, Wanda Sykes, and Jamie Foxx.  Other actors Ellie Kemper, Ike Barninholtz, Anthony Anderson, Marisa Tomei, Wanda Sykes, Mara Gibbs, Jennifer Hudson, Will Ferrell, Amber Steven West, Stephen Tobolosky, Sean Hayes, Jackee Harry, and Kerry Washington. They did a tremendous job in performing their roles. if this show gets an Emmy Nomination, these actors deserve it.  

Woody Harrelson and Marisa Tomei sang the opening song “Those were the days” it was perfect. The episode they did was “Henry’s Farewell”, which aired in October 1973. In which they meet the Jefferson at the party say farewell to Henry Jefferson, George’s brother

The script was written by Norman Lear himself, a fantastic comedy writer.  If people wanted to be a scriptwriter for television, they should learn from the best from Norman Lear writings and his shows.

The name mention in conversation was Shirley Chisholm,  Democratic in 1968 she became the first black woman elected to the United State Congress. In 1972, she became the first black candidate for a major party’s nomination for President of the United States, and the first woman to run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

In The Jefferson pilot, “A friend in Need,” premiere in January 1975, George demands that Louise hire a maid. However, the couple ends up hiring a sassy maid.

In the LIVE version show in 2019  and the IMDB mention someone else, which was a decoy. We did not know who will play the maid until Marla Gibbs appeared in the doorway of the Jefferson apartment. She was the original maid in the series. The studio audience and the TV audience was surprised to see, and she still knew her lines, and she did not flub her lines at all, she was a fantastic performer.

In the original show in the 1970s family hour was considered to be the 8 pm hour, Norman Lear and the executives pushed the FCC to show the program around the 8 pm slot, not 9 pm or later, of course, there were lawsuits back in those days, and so Norman won the case. The N-word was used on the show, live in front of the studio audience and the TV audience that shocked America, and it made news back in the 1970’s.

The point of these two iconic shows tells the relationship between black and white and how they were treated differently and the language they used back in the 1970s. We could learn a lot about the relationship back then, today too much chaos. They are still showing the classic of All in the Family and The Jefferson on syndication.

There are few shows, such as The Goldbergs on ABC they used foul language too, but it is bleeped out, which is considered to be in the story content.

The same thing with Norman Lear shows on the story content and how it was used on the air. Especially during a family hour at the 8 pm slot.

If you missed the episode either catch it on demand or they may repeat it, during the Memorial Day weekend.

13 Reason Why: Season one – The Review

A teenage girl named Hannah Baker kills herself and leaves behind a set of cassette tapes which identify 13 reasons—and accordingly, 13 people—from her high school who she considers responsible for her suicide. The story is told over the course of 13 episodes, in flashbacks from Hannah’s point of view and from the present-day perspective of another student, Clay, who had a crush on Hannah and spends most of the show grappling with the secrets he learns on the tapes and confronting the people involved.

I have seen all of the episodes, and it is quite intriguing to watch, and it is worth seeing it again before the new season starts soon. The actors and the story are incredible and compelling and good looking too. It’s mesmerizing to watch happens next.

Selena Gomez is Fine

selena-gomez 2

Selena Gomez is feeling just fine; she underwent surgery to receive a kidney from her best friend Raisa, she’s a star from “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”

According, to Selena Gomez, when she was being interviewed on the Ellen DeGeneres show back in 2015, she said: “It’s an autoimmune disease, which means it is the result of the immune system attacking normal tissue.”

What Is Lupus? The immune system is designed to attack foreign substances in the body. If you have lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system, and it attacks healthy cells and tissues. This can damage many parts of the body such as the:  Joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, brain.

Raisa met Selena back in 2007 when they were a part of a group of Disney and ABC Family, and they started to visit the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.

“I am beyond grateful that God would trust me with something that not only saved a life but changed mine in the process,” Raisa said. “This was part of our story, and we will share it soon, but what is important now is that this is not the only story.”

“There aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa,” said Gomez. “She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much, sis.”

13 Reason why to watch this show

13 reason why

There’s a show on Netflix called “13 reasons why”, they have great actors, and an exquisite story line and a very controversy plot, it talks about teen suicides. I think it shows because some teens don’t want to talk about it and parents must recognize their child mental problems before anything happened.

You will never know they might end up killing someone else or themselves, it’s an epidemic crisis problem in the world. Go to the cemetery and see how many young people died over the past 10 to 20 years ago, they never succeed. They stop living. The better way stop a mental disorder behavior is two ways, take medication or go to a mental institution and they are both expensive. What to do? Is your choice!

You won’t be committed a crime, it’s that they want to be – rest in peace.

The best way stop this is to talk someone, your parents. Parents should be the first to know, they know you, and they raised you. If your child wants to tell a teacher or a friend, they will talk to your parents first. Parents have to know about their child behavior. A child cannot keep it as a secret because the parents have to know and they will try the best way to prevent this behavior.

Do you want your child to be taken away to a mental institution? They will die! Of course, they have the best nurses and doctors in the whole world, but can they take care of your child? That’s horror movie in the making awakened or get revenge or possibilities an escape!

You have to talk to your children. This show “13 reasons why” is telling the parents of how to talk to your children, your children don’t want to talk about it. Let them stay home for a couple days, blocked some programs that your children watch especially violence programs, and hide the password or take the password with you. Remember school is too much drama for your children because it caused stress and anxiety or let them be homeschool for a while or finished their projects that were assigned three weeks ago and needs to be turned in as soon as possible.

If your child wants to watch “13 reasons why”, you could do one thing, flip the channel to a good comedy, that’s a simple way to do it. Laughter is the key to life. Is Girl Meets World still on the air?

The more people talk about “13 reasons why”, people will want to watch it.  Parents have a choice? Don’t watch it, simple talk to your children, they have so many stories they want to tell you.

13 The reason why is a good show, because in between the breaks when filming the show they had therapy dogs on the set, the cast would play with the dogs or hang out together to have fun.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Neighbors 2

Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are expecting their second child and preparing to sell their old house, which is subjected to a 30-day escrow. However, a newly established hard-partying sorority, Kappa Nu, led by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz), has moved into their neighboring house. To prevent the buyers pulling out, Mac and Kelly are soon forced to reunite with Teddy (Zac Efron) to help battle the sorority sisters.

In other words, it’s hilarious, raunchy and hilarious. Do you remember your college sorority or frat parties? Back in your days? Probably back in the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s? The classics were Animal House (1978) and Revenge of the Nerds (1984). I saw the last one recently, because back in my days. I was teenager and I wasn’t allowed to watch it. It was rated “R.” And I was a teenager in the 1980’s. I don’t know if universities are still doing this since a lot of students are getting trouble and getting suspended for bad behavior.

For me, I am glad I am not a party person. It will ruin anyone life.  Now with technology and cell phone, anyone can be seriously suspended or expel from a university and ruin their career. So don’t party too hard.  Don’t post embarrassing pictures on Facebook, it can ruin your life and career.  Just study hard and you can meet your soul mate.

Now, in today’s universities sororities and fraternities, they cannot throw any parties on campus with drug and alcohol involve. It’s against the university rules and polices.

My thought of the movie, it’s hilarious. Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, and Rose Byrne are a comedy team.  The other actors are Chloë Grace Moretz, Kiersey Clemons, Selena Gomez and Beanie Feldstein, they were hilarious too.

Please check out this movie premiering May 20, 2016!

White House Down

White House Down

This is  a highly anticipation  movie of the summer, maybe a summer blockbuster movies already started, maybe Channing Tatum will take off his shirt like when he did on Magic Mike.  I had two women sitting besides me when I was watching the movie, they did not care about the plot, and all they wanted to see is Channing Tatum. One of them women looked at me and ask if this was Magic Mike the sequel.

“No, it’s White House Down” I said.

“Ohh, I don’t have a TV” said the attractive women.

That explains it.

Anyway, Channing Tatum plays Cale, an earnest, overachievement D.C. cop who saves President Sawyer – Jamie Fox, wielding heavy weapons with more energy than conviction – and foils the terrorist. This movie reminds of Bruce Willis ‘Die hard in a White House’ and Channing Tatum is much younger, stronger, muscles, and smarter, and he saves the day. The supporting cast Richard Jenkins as the top congressional official and James Wood as a turncoat Secret Service agent.  Channing Tatum daughter in the movie is played by the young and talented Joey King. You may recognize her from TV and Movies such as from TV:  Suite of Life of Zack and Cody, and Bent.  Movies: Ramona and Beezus with Selena Gomez,  Oz the Great and Powerful, and Dark Knight Rises (she shave her hair off).  This summer she will be featuring in ‘The Conjuring’ coming out this summer.  It’s a true and scary movie.  I will do a review and background of the movie with no spoilers.

Roland Emmerich, was the executive producer of “Independence Day”  and directed “White House Down.”  He used primarily the same scene from “Independence Day” instead of Aliens attacking, terrorists.  He also produced such hits such “The Day After Tomorrow”, “2012” and “Godzilla”

The story  and writer was James Vanderbilt  from “The Amazing Spider Man.”

So please check out this movie. You will not be disappointed. It will keep you awake through out the movie. Overall, this movie is good, the movie is 2 hours and 20 minutes long. So please wear diapers so you will not missed a second of the action. (No caffeine drinks)
