“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of (or commentary about) websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).
Well, I feel like I need to explain some things at the very start of this. For most of you know me as being a most manly man, and manly men do not generally celebrate the fairer sex for things other than having the potential to be dynamite in the sack and actually being dynamite in the sack, as well as being great at cooking and cleaning house. Whereas, this piece will not be touching upon any of those things.
Yeah, I know, ‘tis a great shock to the senses. For this piece is going to be about how much respect I have for the likes of [Mo’ne Davis] and the characters played by [Debra Messing] and [Tea Leoni] in their new television series.
Okay, the absolute truth of the matter truly is that I find both Debra Messing and Tea Leoni HIGHLY attractive in a physical sense, but I would like to focus upon the character of the characters they are now playing here. This should keep me out of trouble with Arlynda—right?
My days as a leader of manly men may be drawing to a close, however. For I have never been opposed to girls/women being allowed to do anything they can truly do, and Mo’ne Davis can flat-out pitch a baseball. So, there should not be any obstacles to her moving on to play high school baseball (with and against boys) if she chooses to, but it is my understanding that she dreams of someday playing big-time college basketball on the [UConn] women’s team. Oh, and aside from being a great athlete, little Miss Mo’ne acquitted herself splendidly during press conferences at the last Little League World Series, which indicates to me that she is a great person, as well.
The same can be said of Laura, and if there are any doubts of Debra Messing being a consummate professional when it comes to acting, her role in [The Mysteries of Laura] should put it to rest. For she is constantly being subjected to rather humiliating situations.
Yeah, her appearing on camera like that made me rethink just how attractive I find her, but some of you may applaud her courage. There is something seriously wrong with those who do, though.
Aside from scenes like that, Arlynda and I have both enjoyed the first two episodes of the show. The pilot episode tried too hard to be humorous much of the time for my taste, but the second episode was more palatable.
The show should be a big hit to both sexes just on account of highlighting just how [catty] women can be in certain situations. Of course, I suppose snooty women would find that rather off-putting.
Be assured that there is nothing catty about Tea Leoni’s character on [Madam Secretary]. For she goes about performing her duties with great grace and dignity, and I especially appreciate her leaning quite heavily upon the support of her husband, with them appearing to have a truly equal partnership in their marriage.
No, the significance of Tea looking like Hillary Clinton (although a MUCH more smoking hot version) while doing her old job as the United States Secretary of State on the eve of the next presidential election season is not lost on me. It is still a show well worth watching unless you have too many tea parties to attend to.
Now, do you think ending this with a great song might help smooth any feathers I may have ruffled? Alas, I am going to give it a try.
