I know what you mean, bees. It just doesn't get any better than this! As I watch the episodes over and over, I continue to be blown away by the amazing acting not only by Bruce and Cybill, but the whole ensemble. Everyone fit together so perfectly. I guess that's why it's so easy to get carried away to that special place where this make-believe world seems so real. No matter how many times you watch, it always seems fresh. The funny parts continue to be funny - I still giggle out loud when I hear certain lines. One of my favorite little moments actually occurs in Maddie Hayes Got Married. You know when Walter comes into the office for the first time and he mistakes Bert for David? Agnes comes out with this giggle that sets me off every time. Also, when David walks out of his office to meet Walter and looks off to the side looking for Walter and then Walter and Agnes look in the same direction. Classic! And the sad parts still get to me. Just hearing the loop of "If I Fell", makes my stomach clutch. No matter how many times I watch the drama unfold, I wish that it would end differently this time. I'm just an incurable romantic...
I am excited to see another young fan here on the boards! I was 25 yrs. old when ML first began. And just recently have rediscovered it in the last 9 months or so with the DVD's.
Oddly enough, my perspective of ML has changed somewhat with the passage of time.
So, don't give up on some of the episodes like Atomic Shakespeare, etc.. I know when I was in school and "forced" to read Shakespeare it was not my cup of tea either!!! But, if my English teachers could have pulled out Atomic Shakespeare back then I probably would have been a little more receptive.
Enjoy all of the threads and I hope you post often!!
Oh thank you! But it's not really about Shakespear lol .. I just didn't like when they played other roles, if "The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice" wasn't so amazingly well done, I wouldn't have liked it .. anyway I intend to keep posting, I get more in love with series everytime I rewatch it
Hey Nazel, good to see another of my gender take the leap and join the fray.
I have to echo beesnbears post. I too was 25 when ML started (OK, yeah now I'm almost 48 but I act like I'm 14). I immediately loved the show once introduced to it by a buddy's kid sister. I taped just about all of the episodes since I worked on ML nights, which turned out to be a great deal as I could watch and rewatch the first runs (with commercials!) as much as I wanted.
I also agree that my appreciation of the shows grows with time. The first time around, I of course identified with carefree, sometimes reckless Dave with my small apartment, new Corvette and party habits. Now, over 20 years later, I find myself identifying more with Mr. Hayes with a 4 bedroom colonial, OLD Corvette and falling asleep on the couch by 10.
As long as I don't start identifying myself with Emily Greydon, I think I'm OK.
