We didn't win the Emmy.
Mary McDonnell was truly robbed!
And as for the Hair Emmy? Well. Just like last year, the Hair Emmy again went to another show, on yet another network, and they truly deserved to win, AGAIN, because those hairstylists have some Mad skills, and they're not all Menů
But you can tell from our faces that Greg and I had fun anyway!
Okay. Enough of that. Let's talk about this week's episode of "The Closer" instead, shall we?
His third time up to bat, David "Dmac" McWhirter hit another home run as our fearless director. This time he tackled the touchy subject of family differences, and how sometimes they are solved, not by talking and sharing feelings, but by screaming and devastating violence. Yikes. But seriously, who would watch a cop show where everyone sat around and talked through their problems? Not me, that's for sure. I need conflict and resolution in my fictional entertainment. Just like every other human person I've ever encountered. Well, there is certainly a lot of conflict and resolution in this episode. Oh, can I just say that Jake Busey, one of our guest stars, usually plays kinda bad-ass creepy characters, right? Remember him in Contact? Whoa. Anyway, I'm happy to report, he's a nice guy! Not creepy at all in person. What a relief!
This is one of those episodes where the "whodunit" is a big surprise, and really makes me think about how fiction is usually influenced by fact, and to seriously wonder what would push someone to commit such horrendous acts of heinousness.
Umů Is Heinousness a word? I don't know for sure, but if it's not, it should be!
