Spotted: Walder Frey (i.e. actor David Bradley) at a wedding. Luckily, it ended better than the typical Game of Thrones wedding.

        Today we’re playing an excerpt of Terry’s interview with Elaine Stritch, a performer lucky enough to have debuted songs by Noel Coward and Stephen Sondheim, and to have been coached by each of them.  She died last Thursday at the age of 89. 

        Stritch used to describe herself as “a Catholic, diabetic, alcoholic, pain in the ass.”  Her Broadway career began in 1946.  She was Ethel Merman’s understudy in the Irving Berlin musical Call Me Madam in the early 50s, and starred in Noel Coward’s 1961 Broadway musical Sail Away, in a role that he expanded to suit her large talent.   In 1970 she co-starred in the Sondheim musical Company, where she sang what became one of her signature songs, The Ladies Who Lunch.  In 2002, she was on Broadway in her autobiographical one woman show Elaine Stritch At Liberty.   In 2010, she replaced Angela Lansbury in a revival of Sondheim’s Follies.  TV audiences knew her from 30 Rock playing Alec Baldwin’s mother. 

        Terry spoke with Stritch in 1999, when she was starring in a revival of Sail Away, in honor of Noel Coward’s centennial.

        arathesane said: Yeah, mine aren’t in order. Only one would be above any/all of the others( Nobody’s guessed him, yet, though I’ve repeatedly said he’s my TV fave of all time.) Made a list last night so I wouldn’t change it! Was hard to leave off several characters.

        I havent seen your list but I would guess Omar from The Wire.  I didnt make a list, I think 10 is enough to give me a little leeway because I am sooooo picky.  But I know people wont guess some because I dont talk about them that much or they’re from really old shows or something.

        Haven’t posted a list, Veronica Mars is the only one that has been guessed accurately so far.

        And, yeah, Omar, is the character I was talking about, my fave of all time.

        (Some gifs for the correct guess.)

        I’m not sure with me that it’s that I’m not picky more than I currently watch about 20,000 shows and have watched so many others in the past. Though, all of the characters I picked are from shows that aren’t on anymore. I think the earliest character(so to speak) premiered in ‘91.

        There are many I could have been picked from series older than that, but while I love them, I wasn’t ever obsessed with them. That’s how I narrowed down my picks, ones I was either once obsessed with or ones that I relate to.

        I also tried not to have my current Deadwood rewatch influence me. Which was hard because, oh, so many great characters. Or etonia’s X-Files rewatch influence me. (Scully narrowly missed the cut.) Honestly, I could probably have picked ten from The Wire, alone, Or all the characters from The Hour, several from BSG, several from TTOI or Veep, and so on. Some series have so many great characters.

        My friends Grayson and Tina counterprotest the anti-choice people in Raleigh every Saturday. Here, the antichoice people have assembled in prayer to, as they are reported to have put it, “pray for Grayson’s wife.”

        Seriously? That came out of Mulder’s mouth? On the show?

        Yuuuuuup. It was jarring.

        I guess, technically, that could be correct? Because he has a degree in psychology and worked for the behavioral science unit but isn’t really a practicing psychologist? Though, he does use applied psychology in his work, still, and, yeah, the line isn’t trying to imply that subtle a distinction, anyway. It sounds more like a glaring continuity error.
