Harry's Law

Gawd, I love Kathy Bates!

Remember Kathy Bates?

Remember: Dolores Claiborne? or Fried Green Tomatoes (two of my all time favorite movies!)

or Misery or Titanic ....

or About Schmidt? 

Then maybe I need to know why such a fantastic Actress would turn to TV after  all her successful years as a movie actress?

I'd really like to think it's NOT about age.

But, this non-betting person, would actually bet on the fact that it is.  I mean, it almost has to be because she is just way too good an actress not to be used.

So, I was shocked when the very first episode of Harry's Law came on Saturday night at 8 pm!  "oh my gawd! Something decent to watch on Saturday!!!!!! How did this happen?!"

Ah well.. I am sure it's short lived as they keep announcing the "debut" as Monday night at 10 pm..a perfect time for me to fall asleep in the middle of the show *groan*   Therefore I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will also keep airing on Saturday night!  Oh how nice it would be to have something decent to watch on the weekend!!!

Did I mention that I love Kathy Bates?  Well I do.  I have enjoyed her performances in everything I've ever seen her in, be it a lead part or a small part...she brings something special to whatever she does. ..and this new TV series is no different.

There she was.  Kathy Bates!  On a television series!  I will be able to see her more than once every few years when she's in a movie!  I like this!  I know it will be a lot of work for her but I hope the show makes good and she's on for a long time to come.

Harry's Law...

Premise: An irascible attorney is fired and sets up her own practice in an abandoned shoe store and builds a team of unlikely colleagues.

I have to tell anyone who didn't see this that she's really very believable.. it's a strange group that they've casted together, but I think it's going to work.  I'm no critic.. lord knows when I like an actor they can do no wrong lol..but in this case, let's face it.. it's Kathy Bates!.. she can do no wrong! 

Ok I'll shut up now... I just wanted to mention the fact that her show will air tomorrow night for those of you who may be interested in watching it...Kathy Bates is always worth your time.

The one show I absolutely cannot wait to see each week is The Good Wife. All the little ins and outs and subplots are killing me! I go to sleep watching TV shows too, but now that we have a DVR it's no problem. I'll check this show out. Oops, my Monday nights are awfully full of stuff to DVR already; hopefully I can fit this in.

Pat, she is a favorite of mine as well. I hope they bring this out on DVD at some point. I can not stand regular TV!

She was on The Office as the new owner of Michael's office - and she was good, too. I'll have to try to catch this one just to see her. Thanks for writing about her so evocatively, Pat!

There are so many GOOD reasons people do Television now...And Having good scripts and and an interesting character to play goes a long long way as a selling point--PLUS, it's a steady job, if it "goes"...!

I watched that first episode and had some problems with it--I taped last nights show but haven't watched it yet....
And I think Kathy Bates is a Brilliant actress....But I will reserve my opinion until after I have seen a few more episodes.

Kathy Bates is fantastic. She's been playing a guest role on The Office the last few seasons so she's been dabbling with TV for awhile. Sad to say I think it is hard for older actresses to get parts in Hollywood (crazy, I know).

I absolutely adore Kathy Bates, too! Adore her. And honestly, I pay so little attention to actresses/actors that there's few people I can actually say that about. I've been tempted by this show, but there just seems to be so little time for TV. One show a week is about my limit, and I'm too addicted to Criminal Minds to give it up. Glad to hear you're enjoying it though...maybe I'll just have to give in...
