The first season of Maude was released on DVD this week. Talk about long overdue. Is there a smarter, funnier, smarter (yes, I said that twice) show in all of television history? Not really. Especially not in sitcom-land.
Here’s a snippet from LA Weekly that handily (if unedited-ly) sums up Maude‘s brilliance:
It just doesn’t get better than Bea Arthur and Adrienne Barbeau. Funny is sexy, and, um, Barbeau-y is sexy.
On a sort-of-related note (in the sense that all brilliant TV is, arguably, related), episodes of Charlie’s Angels are now available on iTunes. Or so says Variety, anyway — when I checked the iTunes store just now, I found nothing. But I’ve never been much of a sleuth — I’m sure Charlie never would have hired me.
I would assume that 6 out of 10 lesbians prefer Sabrina, but maybe I’m wrong: Who’s your favorite Angel? Sabrina (Kate Jackson), Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) or Jill (Farrah Fawcett)? Oh, or Kris (Cheryl Ladd) or Tiffany (Shelley Hack)?
