There are some movies that just get under your skin and cause you to have to think, and the worst part is you realise that they aren’t meant to be understood, and that is how they get their hooks into you. Robert Altman’s 3 Women was said to be based on a dream. I guess it comes as no surprise that it feels like it is one of the most haunting dreams you’ll have.

  • TVSeriesFinale
The Perfect Strangers sitcom revolves around aspiring photographer Larry Appleton (Mark Linn-Baker) and his misfit cousin, Balki Bartokomous (Bronson Pinchot) from the Mediterranean island of Mypos. The two end up becoming best friends and live and work together in Chicago and eventually marry a pair of best friend girls (Melanie Wilson and Rebeca Arthur). Other recurring castmembers include Lise Cutter, Ernie Sabella, Jo Marie Payton, Belita Moreno, and Sam Anderson.

The ABC series ran for 150 episodes, from 1986 until 1993, and has one of the catchier theme songs of that era.

George Lopez: A Reunion of the Sitcom Cast on Lopez Tonight

  • TVSeriesFinale
There was a small uproar when George Lopez and his sitcom left ABC in 2007. Lopez himself was very vocal about the cancellation and spoke out against the network decision. He felt that George Lopez was cancelled in part because it wasn't produced by ABC's in-house studio.

But, you can't keep a good comic down and Lopez has been having good luck hosting his own nightly talk show on TBS. The show's only been on for a few weeks and he's wasting no time in reuniting his old TV clan.

Tomorrow night, December 15th, be sure to tune in to Lopez Tonight to see the host reunite with Constance Marie (wife Angie), Belita Moreno (mother "Benny"), Valente Rodriguez (best buddy Ernie), Masiela Lusha (daughter Carmen), Luis Armand Garcia (son Max), and Aimee Garcia (niece Veronica).
