Some things just don’t fly on American TV. For example, the unedited version of Tipping the Velvet will probably never air in the U.S., which is, frankly, tragic. Luckily, some things do eventually make it across the pond, like The Graham Norton Show, which airs on BBCA. I look forward to seeing the episode that features Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly. It recently aired in the U.K. in celebration of the release of the Cagney and Lacey season 1 DVD.
For now, I’ll have to be satisfied with a clip — and I definitely, completely am. It involves hidden speakers and a two-way mirror in a ladies’ room, but I can’t really describe it. It’s best to just watch. I’ll offer one quote:
Daly: "Use your panties."
Gless: "I’m not wearing any panties."
