No doubt about it, his remarkable talent has evolved. I loved one of the comments.."He's one bad a$$ old man".

Still handsome too.

Karamu: 100 Years in the House

We watched a PBS show about Karamu Playhouse in Cleveland tonight. Although the theatre has been around for 100 years, the original "social club" began a few years earlier as one of the Cleveland Settlement Houses. I remember my Mom telling me stories about her times spent in her neighborhood's settlement house learning to do hand sewing (which she never really caught on with) and performing in plays (hmm, do I see where I get that from?).

It was an interesting, albeit short, history and overview of how important Karamu was in the neighborhood. It became, and remains, one of the premier community theatres dedicated to advancing African-American actors, playwrights, and other creative artists in their talents.

If you're interested in seeing the show and it isn't listed on your TV schedule, you can watch it (about 25 minutes) via the PBS "Ideastream" link:

We watch it faithfully every week, Charlie. The actress who played Linda Reagan, Amy Carlson, decided to leave at the end of her contract period rather than negotiate a new contract. I know how they wrote her character out of the story line, too, but I'm not sure if you want to know that right now. If you do, just let me know and I'll fill you in.

What episode was her last one? I don't watch regularly, so usually just try to catch up to what I missed. Also which episode the house gets burned?

Thank you

I'm totally hooked on The Alienist. You know it's good when you look forward to getting an hour free to watch an episode here and there.

Blue Bloods is our very favorite series..we never miss it. She was gone when the new season started in the fall. They never had a house fire on Blue Bloods, you must be thinking "This is Us"..another favorite of mine, although SC doesn't watch that.

She appeared in the last episode of last season, then decided to not return before this year started to film. They eliminated her character by having a medivac helicopter crash while she was in it assisting a patient. Never showed that scene, just referred to it in an early episode this year.

Actually, they did Kayelle. The season 7 finale was Danny and Linda Reagan's house on fire after a drug cartel bombed it. The entire family was huddled together outside and fine. And then the start of season 8? *poof* Linda's gone.
