The things I do because of my undying love of Mary Tyler Moore. I mean, I haven't watched Lipstick Jungle since the pilot and now here I am watching it early (before it starts on Sept. 24th) because I want to get a glimpse of MTM in action. She's looking quite botoxed (a substance which this episode taught me has some other interesting uses). The season premiere starts out with the three women giggling at at funeral (much like the most famous episode of Mary Tyler Moore in which Mary herself starts laughing uncontrollably at the funeral service for the station's resident clown). That's where the similarities end. The show isn't that terrible. It's just not my cup of tea. I already watched all of Sex and the City, I can't commit to another show just like it but less funny. But every once and a while it is nice to watch a show that is so uncomplicated that you can just jump into it without really much knowledge of it at all and completely follow the plot and storyline. It's like a soap opera. I don't plan on watching again... well, except for the episodes with Mary. Then I'm under fan obligation to sit through them.
