Shmanyway, this will have to do for now.
By the way, on a Will & Grace episode with Jeff Goldblum, Patti Lupone had a cameo. That link was almost entirely for my friend Keith. Also a little for my sister Emily. But mostly for me. Oh Will & Grace, I miss you. If my heart contained a cedar chest full of favorite 90s sitcoms, you'd be right there beside Friends, Seinfeld, and Home Improvement. Side note, I've taken to saying "I don't think so, Tim" instead of saying "no." It's going well, I think. Minimal complaints from my loved ones.
Speaking of Home Improvement,
DID I JUST BLOW YOUR MIND?! JTT ended up the shortest. Hilarious. Also, why in the holy crap did they include Heidi in this picture? And why is she more central than Al? Al made that show! He was the lynch pin! Heidi was the least essential person in the show, and yet she is front and center in this photo! And you know who isn't in the photo?
The big man himself. Wilson. That, by the way, is not Wilson. I know that we all can't be Home Improvement experts like myself, but that is actually my brother John in his Halloween costume. Best costume I've ever seen... hands down. (Or rather... "hands up!" Get it? Because if he puts his hands down he would reveal his identity? Moving on.)
There's nothing NOT 90s about this photo
All of this to say... I've had a lot of down time in Ann Arbor and I've filled a lot of it by re-visiting 90s sitcoms. And you know what I realized? Sitcoms are awesome. I don't care if they're so predictable that I can guess the episode's ending by the time the first joke rolls around. They're comforting. Everything gets resolved and nothing is too serious. And there's always someone there for comedic effect.
I'm watching "How I Met Your Mother" for the first time ever. I boycotted it in the past, mostly because I was lumping it in with "Two and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory" (both of which I'm against, I can explain later). It's the best thing ever! It just... it's so... it's just a happy show. It brings me back to a time of yesteryear, a time when black blazers over black turtle necks were in fashion. When mothers could wear the same black vest as their oldest sons.
What I'm trying to say is: Sitcoms, you're alright.
