Which is why I said it’s early in the season so I will wait and see how it all goes. But based on these first three episodes, the reboot hasn’t really established why it deserved to return in 2018, regardless of how talented Candice Bergen is. I’m beginning to see where the tepid critical response to this is coming from now.October 12, 2018 at 5:19 pm #1202651648
<p>Murphy’s #MeToo confrontation moment was strong for Candice Bergen, and I’m liking that her relationship with Phyllis is mirroring Murphy and Phil’s. Beyond that, this reboot is doing little to distinguish or justify itself for existing in 2018. All the modernizing in the world with social media, Trump references, and current events can’t replace the missing “spark” that’s either there or it isn’t. Part of the problem is a lacking ensemble cast. Bergen really needs strong actors to bounce off of to bring out her greatness. Jay Thomas, Colleen Dewherst, Scott Bakula, Lily Tomlin, Robert Pastorelli, Pat Corley, Robin Thomas, etc., all did that previously, and now what’s needed is the next iteration of that. It’s early on still, so here’s hoping for that and more.</p>
Ford, Regalbuto and Kimbrough were all Emmy nominees, and Shaud should have been. When either English or the OG writers were running the show, they were all part of what made the show great.October 12, 2018 at 7:38 pm #1202651692

I know the show’s past Emmy history. My point was having screen partners now that challenge Bergen, which I haven’t seen yet.October 18, 2018 at 4:48 pm #1202656333

Loved this episode. My grade: A+
Midler, Larroquette, and Shields coming for those possible Emmy nods 🙂October 19, 2018 at 12:05 pm #1202657137
I’ll admit that I was a little giddy seeing Jim Dial again lol. The reboot wasn’t complete without Charles Kimbrough making at least one appearance on it.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantOctober 20, 2018 at 1:42 am #1202657498

The return of Charles Kimbrough definitely livened up this episode.October 27, 2018 at 8:27 pm #1202663178
So what did everyone think of the most recent episode from this past week titled ‘The Girl Who Cried About Wolf’?October 28, 2018 at 9:26 am #1202663380
LOVED it. Finally watched it. Avery was my MVP easilyOctober 29, 2018 at 6:06 pm #1202664601
I thought this week’s episode was actually the strongest yet.November 1, 2018 at 3:42 pm #1202666505
