    Alex Borstein has lost a lot of weight.

    I saw her on Resident Alien last week.

    She looks so much younger.

    There's two ways to play this on MIss Maisel, where she is being constantly mistaken for a man.

    1. Add padding to her clothes.
    2. Run with her new killer bod and and write the woman some romantic story lines.

    This is disappointing news. But considering how long it takes between seasons, I guess I'm not surprised. While I'm looking forward to seeing the new season, my wife has "moved on" and isn't that interested.

    Since they are dropping two episodes a week on Fridays, I have decided to watch the first episode immediately with a three day or so waiting period before the second episode of the week.

    I haven't gotten around to it yet, but several friends have posted about how disappointed they were with the opener. Seeing as my wife was already decidedly "meh" about watching, this may turn into a lunch-hour watch for me during the week.

    During a moment of clarity, I realized that she was asked to gain weight for the role of Suzie, and they asked to keep it on for the duration of the show, which has since expired, so the new Alex is just what happens when she isn't aspiring to be Suzie.

    I saw something similar on Being the Ricardos, in the biopic the character of Vivian "Ethyl" Vance lost a lot of weight in protest for being paired off with a super old dude. Sick of being thought of so deficient she had to marry her father, she wanted to glam the part and become the sex symbol she though she deserved to be.

    P.S.

    Suzie is so a Lesbian, and we only have 8 episodes left to have that confirmed.

    The ironic thing is that I liked the first season, but the second felt so generic and insincere. Given how many people hated the first season, I'm surprised they even gave it a second.

    I watched the first episode of Another Life and it was just about the most inept hour of television I had ever seen with so many incompetent characters making nonsensical decisions over and over again. Apparently you can join the space program if you're a lazy slacker who lacks common sense, doesn't listen to authority and isn't any good at your job.

    The episode ended with one character trying to kill the captain to take command of the ship but it was unsuccessful and he was killed instead. At the start of the very next episode, everyone thinks the captain killed him for no reason and she doesn't say a thing to defend herself or explain what happened! I immediately turned it off after that.

    My husband was watching that not long ago--he likes Katee Sackhoff-and I thought it was laughably awful.

    Well if you can find it, I just finished the Education of Max Bickford, who has a tiny inny weeny pre BSG Katee in it. Standard American 40 minute drama, but some of the ideals are very outdated since it's old man Richard Drefus trying to be "cool" about his best friend transitioning into a woman back in 2001.

    Found the pilot on youtube.



    I was watching Eductaion of Max Bickford and Another Life back to back for a while, where Katee was zinging back and forth between 21 and 42, but it wasn't really at all that noticeable, except for the pink hair.

    I was going to say that. This is what I get for only coming in here once a day.

    Shocking everyone, 1883 isn't coming back for a second season because it wasn't planned as anything more than a limited series.

    There's another Yellowstone show coming out called 1932. Guessing that will also be a limited series.
