The Warriors! Streets of Fire!! Too Close for Comfort!
I love Valerie in "French Postcards"
I've worked with Deborah Van Valkenburgh in the theatre. She's lovely, gracious and utterly professional. And of course, enormously talented.
Just caught her on a rerun of Cold Case. She was great.
in what show r3?
R5. "Picasso at the Lapin Agile," "I Love You You're Perfect, Now Change" and "The Beauty Queen of Leenane."
I heard she is spending more time on paintings. I've always loved her. I saw her on Cold Case and would love to see her more on tv. Has anyone met her? I think she would be great to hang out with.
Where's my thread?
"You make me come...COME ALIVE!"
"Too Close for Comfort" was the funniest and best written sitcom of all-time. Much more intelligent and witty than any of its contemporaries. It's nearly forgotten now, but it was better than anything on TV before or since.
R10, Dearheart, you're off your meds. Too Close for Comfort was anything but witty and intelligent. It was mediocre at best. The '80s were the worst decade for sitcoms. The best were Cheers and Newhart (other than the '70s carryovers that ran into the early '80s - M*A*S*H, WKRP in Cincinnati, Taxi, Barney Miller). Too Close for Comfort was actually not all that funny and not particularly well written. The cast members were quite good though(except for Jim J. Bullock, who was irritating).
Deborah and Lydia are close friends. They were together at a reunion. Both look good.
Didn't Lydia Cornell marry a guy with big money and never had to work another day? I think a few other 80s actresses did the same thing. There was one whose name escapes me, but she was on a sci-fi show and shortly after it ended she married into a very wealthy family overseas and left Hollywood for good.
"I ain't no WHORE."
I love the final subway scene in The Warriors. The gang kids were so much hotter than the prom kids.
R11 you forgot other 70s carry over sitcoms like Three's Company, Diff'rent Strokes and The Facts of Life.
R10 You are pulling our leg, right? TCFC was plain dumb. Those predictable, juvenile "sitcom" jokes.
Deb's pussy gets soooooo wet.
Deborah and Lydia Cornell are both around 60 years old now. Does that make you feel old?
R18. Yes, Deborah and Lydia are 60--but 30 years ago, they were 30, when "Too Close For Comfort" was on the air. They were rather old to still be living at home with mom and dad even then.
Deborah (Jackie Rush) worked at a bank and later as a fashion designer. And Lydia (Sara) was a college student--a rather old college student apparently. I suppose the show made more sense when the girls moved downstairs to their own apartment. I guess, thus the name, "Too Close For Comfort."
Lydia wrote, directed, and starred in a film called Venus Conspiracy. Deb was a co-star.
The candy scene at the link.
What happened to the "DVV has committed suicide" mash-up thread? I was enjoying it...I was ready to post "I accidentally killed my neighbor's gargoyle, I think, and Gale Harold is sick about it!"
Ugly ass bitch
Why was TCfC such a cheap-looking show, even for its time? Was it due to videotape?
It was a cheap show because it wasn't supposed to be a hit. It was one of those "throw-a-ways" but it was on behind, "The Suzanne Somers" Show and that made it a hit.
Then JM J Bullock became a breakout fag...ah star...and the show quickly moved from Ted Night's "girls" to his main girl Munroe.
