Liza with a Z

If you’ve been watching “Fosse/Verdon” on FX, you’ve seen scenes in which Bob Fosse directed Liza Minnelli in “Cabaret.” But you may not her 1972 TV special, for which both of them won Emmys. Here’s some history and a highlight from that show.

The Pirates Are Not Taking Over

Recently, I got into a discussion with a young guy who claimed that streaming services like Netflix and Hulu are dying because video piracy is coming back, big time. I don’t think so, and here’s why.

My thoughts on the reboot of the Helen Hunt/Paul Reiser sitcom, “Mad About You,” coming soon to a channel you never heard of that you probably don’t get.

Pop Goes The King

I haven’t yet seen the four-hour documentary HBO will air tonight and tomorrow about 2 men who say Michael Jackson abused them when they were boys, but I’ll bet it burns up social media — and causes radio stations to consider dropping his music altogether.
