First off, Helen, I'm sorry for your loss. Because it is a loss, even if it's just of opportunity. There's no one way to respond to death, no one way to grieve. You feel what you feel, and I...

This is one of the best QL episodes, and one of the best episodes of TV period. It encapsulated the cost of leaping (knowing the future and having only limited power to change it), versus the desire...

There's the pilot of The Cosby Show. Already the show was memorable just being on the air, because it was sit-com with a black family who werenít at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder. At the...
