Happy Holidays, Retrowatchers! If you celebrate Christmas, I hope it was smashing. If not, I hope you had a good Wednesday. We are in the final full week of the year, which is usually a time of reflection. 2013 has been pretty good. I’m grateful that I started this blog, and one of my resolutions for 2014 is to get back to regular postings. The last few months of the year are always crazy, and January serves as the reset button to a normal schedule.
Two things before we start:
1.) Santa surprised me with this book. I had no idea it existed, but am excited to delve in. I will share any insightful facts, fun stories, or juicy secrets with you. Also, I must point out the name: Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted. Please note who DIDN’T make the title. (coughcoughMurraycoughcough)
2.) While out Christmas shopping a few weeks ago, I found an Andy Warhole-type painting of Mary, Rhoda, and Phyllis at a funky shop called Miss Pixies. Retrowatchers, it took everything in me not to buy it. (Well, that and the somewhat steep price tag.) I wish the painting was showcased on the store website so I could link to it. I’ve never seen anything so random, so awesome, and so connected to something that is currently a big part of my life. So, dear reader: If you are ever at Miss Pixies and the painting is still there, let me know.
And now, season three! This week, we discuss the first four episodes of the third season of Mary Tyler Moore, including:
Episode 1: The Good-Time News
Episode 2: What is Mary Richard Really Like?
Episode 3: Who’s In Charge Here?
Episode 4: Enter Rhoda’s Parents
