Those were the Key words in my Title.
I apologize if that confused you somehow. But a quote doesn't always preclude the ability to comment on the entire thread, now, does it?
I never implied that you did anything wrong. Implication is quite different than inference.
I can take your excellent points one by one.
Yes, it did. I apologize.
And yes, IMHO, I thought it might fall in that category.
Well at least you made me laugh.
That is one of my chief goals. Even if it makes you want to punch my lights out.
And the more I think about it, I have to disagree. Written text absolutely conveys inflection and/or feeling, if it's done properly (or sometimes improperly).
Otherwise, you could not have inferred 'pretty harshly'. 'Dripping with sarcasm' also seems to convey something. Sorry about that. I'm a work in progress.
Hmmm. Well, I've avoided this thread but I might as well make some observations.
As we've noted in other threads, because of streaming and heavy competition the number of scripted TV series is significantly higher than a few years ago meaning more acting jobs.
Producers know that familiar actors from prior series seem to draw more initial episode viewers which gives a bit of a head start on ratings.
Some networks seem to be drawing actors from their own prior shows though those networks don't appear to have the old pre-1950's movie studio model; sometimes this may be related to the fact that they contract with a few producers.
Familiar actors can make a commercial more noticeable and it's extra money for the actor.
I may find Tom Selleck in "Blue Bloods" a familiar, comfortable visage, but he's old (and I'm saying that knowing he and I were born in the same month of the same year). So it's good to see some new faces as key characters - and I say "new" even though I may recognize them as supporting role actors from prior series.
Still, I was surprised to see Reshma Shetty from the medical drama "Royal Pains" and Odette Annable who was in the medical drama "House" in the new medical drama "Pure Genius."
Tom Selleck is 71?
Yep., He was born January 29, 1945. One of those casting weirdnesses is his "Pop" is played by Len Cariou who was born September 30, 1939, making him age 6 when Selleck was born.
