Reed Between The Lines

Theo grew up and I love the way he REEDs!

I suppose Malcolm Jamal-Warner was like, “So if you didn’t like the idea of the Cosby Show…” where there was a black doctor successfully married to a beautiful black professional woman and heading up a well cultured family“…then you’re going to really take issue with two black doctors in a successful marriage, raising a family” and pretty much – cut from the same COSBY cloth.

It’s beautiful.

I used to love The Cosby Show. It opened up a world of NO LIMITS for me. I discovered the series when I was in the 9th grade [1985-86]. My kid is in the 9th grade now, and just discovered REED BETWEEN THE LINES. Ooo! Great timing & how relevant. I hope she finds NO LIMITS & Relevance in every single episode – like I did.

The cool thing is even though it’s clearly set in the 2000’s, the children of Dr. Carla (Psychiatrist) and Alex Reed (Univ. Professor) remind me a lot of the Cosby kids. The Reeds have a set of fraternal twins, (a girl and a boy) and a younger daughter. Style and individuality in wardrobe makes each one stands out and is vibrantly reminiscent of the 1980’s – something like Tempest Bledsoe, Lisa Bonet, and Malcolm J. used to dress.

RBTL is a comedy with real life social situations about being online, self-identity, self-improvement and other familial situations. Today BET channel is running a marathon of Season 1. Tune in and see yourself… tune in and see your kids. Tune in and see how nice lil’ Theo has grown up to be. He plays a great (and wise) dad. His character beyond The Cosby Show is nothing short of impressive. His physique follows suit. Ooo!

Had you seen him? Did you know?
Had you caught an RBTL episode?

Season 1 was a hit
Season 2 is coming quick.

Well actually I can’t find a date for when Season 2 begins,
But when it does, I implore you to tune in.

Don’t let Newt Gingrich go on believing
Blacks have no aspirations, beyond rapping and weeding.
Newt must be on a diet of “resin & seed” eating.

Anywho, REED BETWEEN THE LINES looks a lot like me and you,
I’m Qui
Digging the cast of ‘The Cosbys II’, because watching my reflection is what I’m into. Ooo!

They're Talking to ME

I was bound to watch it – it’s just what the doctor ordered (along with Mother Natures low temperatures) and it is fast becoming one of my favorite talk shows – along side of Tyra Banks and The View. Are you watching it? It comes on CBS @ 2pm/1pm CST. The Talk is hosted by: Julie Chen, Sarah Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson-Peete, Leah Remini and Marissa Jaret Winokur. Marissa was the former host of “Dance Your Ass Off”. Remember her? With the big hair and the big smile? Well on The Talk she’s working the audience aisle. She’s also toned down ‘the BIG HAIRSPRAY do’, added a blonde highlight or two and wha-lah! She’s back in business & looking good.

Though I’ve not caught an episode (yet) of Marissa sitting at the round table or perched on the couch alongside the other ladies. I’ve only been watching a week or two, because when it comes to adopting “new shows” I’m slow to move. I’m just picky. But the last couple of “Talks” I’ve tuned in to have been right on the money. Their current topics are dead on in vibe. I can honestly say I appreciate each woman on the panel and dig her individual vibe…what she brings to the table.

It’s a beautiful fresh bouquet of beauty, laughter, and relative life experiences. It’s a great afternoon pick me up. Tomorrow I’m sure to turn in because todays preview of Wednesdays show showed clips of Niecy Nash crying on the couch. Oh Lawd! Not Niecy. That’s my girl. I miss her on “CLEAN HOUSE“. Tempest Bledsoe is the shows new host and sticking true to how I do — I’m slow to move. I admit I have not tuned in yet to catch her in action. All the same, I KNOW I’m tuning in to The Talk on December 29th – I have got to see what the flower with the flower in hair has to say. Unnnn! (the noise Niecy is known to grunt). I wouldn’t miss it for a thing.

I’m sure I’ll hit the comment box with the details tomorrow.
Was Niecy crying out of happiness, or some sort of sorrow?

I don’t have a clue, so I won’t fictionally squawk.
I’m Qui
Instead I’ll update ‘my online conversate’ post Wednesdays broadcast of THE TALK.

Keep up with the conversation on TWITTER: TheTalk_CBS.
I’ll see you there.
