I was talking to a friend today…

And it came up that we both loved Murphy Brown.

Why don’t they rerun those shows? They were screamingly funny and I think they still would be. Those characters! Eldon! OMG talk about your slow contractors. 😉 And the weekly secretary. We have all worked with those people at some point in our lives.

Maybe one of those channels that has endless reruns of old shows could add this to the line up? And tell me about it so I could watch them?

Meanwhile we have plans to see Book Club this weekend. It may turn out to be stupid but I can’t miss an opportunity to see Miss Bergen and her sense of comedic timing at work.

    1. OMG! I would LOVE that! Is it going to be Candace Bergen, or will they recast it? I would have to adjust to a new lead actress, but I would try!

  1. I think I’ve heard that Christian moral groups oppose Murphy Brown because it’s a bad influence on children and families. There’s a bunch of shows they hate and I think MB was on the list.

    1. Because she was a modern woman choosing things like when she had a baby and how? Because she was successful in a male dominated field? I can see why they are afraid of it. But it still was pretty darned wonderful.

  2. I remember one of the channels showing Murphy Brown here in the UK and I LOVED it! Totally.
    If they do re-run the original series I’d be over the moon if it were shown in the UK again. But a new series … well given a couple of watches and (fingers crossed) I’d fall in love with the new series too.

    Keeping the hope alive and keeping a watch out for it being mentioned.

  3. As far as I know the Murphy Brown show is coming back. I would love to see how the character handles things in the circumstances of today. I loved that show too. Never missed an episode.

    1. You are absolutely right. It was very predictable, each lady played her stereo type, the men were also stereotypical, but it was laugh out loud funny at all the awkward moments. The theater was filled with women with gray hair, and one man and two young girls. I have no idea if the girls got any of it. Pretty sure the guy did but wondered why he was there.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
