I just said to myself last night that I would wear 80% of Blanch’s wardrobe today as a 31 year old. It made me laugh to hear that Rue insisted on keeping every outfit!

Yikes

I listened to only one of these (Perfect Strangers) and wow...the negative energy and hate is intense and pretty unpleasant! This show was a classic and the comedic duo of Bronson Pinchot & Mark Linn-Baker was seriously excellent. And who on earth think Serge from BHC is bad?! That character was awesome! You two have zero sense of humor. Sorry. Who wants to listen to this downer of a podcast??

I give five stars to any podcast that name checks me. Hosts could be drunker though.
