Bradley Cooper is my new best friend
Well, I think they do. I think that one of the things that all my recaps entail is, like, okay, I don't what's going on or what in the hell they're talking about, but isn't it funny? Or isn't it excellent? Or doesn't it rock?
And Merrin is pretty great as the bad Francie, you know?
I know. She really is. Although, I have to say that, out of the box, I think that some of the episodes were mixed up --
Oh, yeah. For example, when she calls...yeah, they were really mixed up. Like, when Syd makes the call to Will to get Francie?
That was from another episode. Yeah, it was really mixed up.
Yeah, when your Bryan Burk, your producer, and I first talked, he was in the mixing room, so I was listening to him mix the episode in the background, and one of the things he said was that they were piecing it together from, like, eight different things, because they kind of got mixed up. And I understand why they did it, because it really made sense in the long run. But things were kind of all over the place.
Especially with the Will/Francie stuff.
Yes. Like, all of a sudden they're making out? Over lobsters? What is this, Annie Hall?
Right, right. Exactly. Hopefully, the audience will just keep goin' with it. Keep goin'. Don't look back. Whatever you do, don't look back!
Well, we're all fans of it. Because, well, in the recaps, I was calling Francie "Foolio" because they just kept making her this fool that just kept asking Sydney, "Oh, so, another trip to Australia?"
Which is so great because now she's fooling everybody.
Oh, yeah. And now we call her "The Francinator" which is actually Merrin's name for her.
Oh, Merrin made that up?
Yeah. She made that up! Well, she was quoted in an article as making that up.
Oh, I'm sure she did. I'm sure she has, like, four names for her character.
I actually was a fan of hers when she was on Grosse Pointe and she had this small role as this sort of kind of unctuous Fox executive.
I tell you, man, she's so good.
She used to be a stand-up comedian!
Yeah, she's really great.
Yeah, I think that's...I think one of my questions was gonna be, even if this show gets cancelled eventually, which all shows do, regardless of how good they are, I think it's been a great vehicle for all of you guys. I think you're all used very well, I think it's really been a standing point that you're talented and you get a chance to show that.
