I’ve only seen some of TNG movies and a handful of episodes from season one of the original (Trying to power through the first two seasons before it gets good), but I couldn’t wait so I did watch the first episode of Picard. I’m glad we finally get to go forward with the timeline. Voyager has always been my favorite so it’s nice seeing where the world is now. My only complaint which I always have with CBS All Access is the week by week release. Still, I’m in! Excited to see where this goes and really excited for Discovery.
Catching up, and finally watched New Years and I noticed the change on this episode with the scenes at Julie's Luncheonette Restaurant for New Years and again with Eli & Gabi showing up at Kristen/Lani's door. I agree it looks better aesthetically and takes away from the overall cheap, cardboard wobbly look of the sets.
As much as I loved her as Myrna Clegg on CAPITOL, and lived for her scenes w/ Constance Towers' Clarissa, to me, Marj will always be Blair Warner's mom on "The Facts of Life." She and Lisa Whelchel had such wonderful mother-daughter chemistry, especially whenever Blair had to be the adult in their relationship (like when Monica was dealing with breast cancer, or deciding whether she wanted to abort her late-in-life pregnancy).
RIP Marj. You are missed already.
