It was a great night for entertainment and television memorabilia collectors as a star-studded cast lined 30 Rock’s sarcastic ode to Valentine’s Day last night. The weekly ratings powerhouse welcomed guest appearances from Horatio Sanz, Jon Bon Jovi, Elizabeth Banks and Jason Sudeikis in Thursday’s “Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day” episode, one that saw a hilarious take on celebrity stalking and the romantic shortcomings of characters Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy.
In one of the funniest skits of the show’s fourth season, Jane Krakowski finds her character Jenna being stalked by Maynard (played by Sanz), who goes as far to mail her pictures of him breaking into her home. Krakowski’s character also receives butchered television show photos and collages from Sanz, at each point letting out a high-frequency shriek.
Tracy Morgan’s character chimes in with a note about celebrity stalking: “That’s a real problem in the celebrity community. But if Beyonce would just answer one of my letters, I’d stop trying to break into her house“.
After three weeks of very public bickering and amidst gargantuan ratings, NBC and soon-to-be-ousted Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien have reportedly agreed to terms on a separation. After boiling down the fates of Conan’s characters like Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Pimpbot 5000, the two sides spent much of the past four days hammering out severance packages for many of the nearly 200 employees currently employed on the Tonight Show. While Robin Williams joked about NBC having a yard sale for the set’s couches and desk on Thursday’s show, there’s no word if the network will hold an auction or sale for the show’s television memorabilia. When Leno left the Tonight Show in May of last year, there was a bevy of celebrity autographs made available through a private auction in the following weeks.
As time gets further away from the last episode of the Sopranos, I am starting to miss the show more. I wish they would have some new episodes but all I have left it seems are the memories. The great acting combined with so many other great attributes that existed in that show: the production values, cinematography, editing, the list goes on, created so many lasting vivid memories.
I grew up around guys like that and I even think that ‘Paulie” (Tony Scirico) was actually a guy I knew and feared coming up as a kid in Brooklyn. If he had a brother named Carmine, then I would be certain. It was cool to know those guys and certainly important when negoitiating your way down the street in those days. You had to know someone in order to secure a safe passage from your house to the subway station. Not always, but sometimes, you would be taunted or actually physically assaulted by the pepole hanging out on the corners.
That’s why it was such a great experience watching the Sopranos and being reminded of their day to day activities through the safety of my living room television.
The Sopranos is a great show and one that I can view over and over again as a piece of television history and nothing can ever take that away.
