Some sad news...

This is a bad photo but the cast of the "Golden Girls" will always be beautiful in my eyes. Photo by LifetimeTV.com.

Estelle Getty died today. If you don't know her, she was wise-cracking Sophia Petrillo on NBC's "The Golden Girls."

I own all the seasons and today I'm going to be watching a few episodes as tribute. I game to the GG party late though. My friend Leon is a HUGE fan. In fact, whenever I would visit him in Atlanta he and I would at some point during the visit find ourselves watching an episode or two. Some people don't get why folks were crazy about four old biddies living in a house in Florida but they had a lot of laughs and a lot of tears and some episodes were just so hysterical I still crack up just thinking about them. If YouTube lets this clip stay up, here's one of my favorites.

She shall be missed. Thank you for being a friend.

"Heroes" webisode

I gotta say, the folks from "Heroes" are raising their game.

Can I just say, I'm on a "Heroes" high? I've been re-watching the first season and it was so amazing, so wonderful that there are no words. Last season in a word: sucked. There were some good episodes but over all it just kinda fell flat.

Now with the upcoming season called "Villians" I can't wait for it to start. I'm going to dub it "Heroes: Legion of Doom."

I'm kinda digging these Webisodes to keep us watching until the main event. I hope the postal guy makes it onto the show because he's cool and I love his power.
