A Rare Retraction.

About seven posts ago, I took a major crap on the TV series "Our Miss Brooks".
I thought the writing was horrible, even though I thoroughly enjoyed the performances.
But I stuck with it, and after about twenty episodes, the writing got much sharper, and it's been
consistently way above average.
I recommend it heartily.
I judged it too soon.
It is now a highlight of my day.
Particularly Gale Gordon's work.
He really hit his comedic stride in this show.
Far funnier than he ever was with Lucy.
And Eve Arden's timing is perfect.
If I discouraged you the first time, I'm sorry.
Mea Culpa.
But there are many episodes left, and it's definitely worth your time.
Next time, I'll once again do a Report Card on one of the plays I saw in New York.


My books, "Show Runner" and it's sequel, "Show Runner Two", can be found at the Amazon Kindle Store.
Along with the newer ones, "The Man Is Dead", and "Report Cards".
They are all compilations of blog entries that have since been removed from the blog.
So this is the only way you can find them.
You can search by typing in my name, Cindy Williams, Laverne and Shirley, The Odd Couple, or Happy Days.
Check them out.
You don't need a Kindle machine to download them.
Just get the free app from Kindle, If and they can be downloaded to an IPhone, IPad, or Blackberry.
The paperbacks, "Mark Rothman's Essays" and my new novel, "I'm Not Garbo" are not e-books.
But they are available for people without Kindle.
I have many readings and signings lined up for those, and the thing about Kindle is you can't sign one.
If you'd like one of the paperbacks, personally autographed, contact me at

And now, we've got my reading of my "Laverne and Shirley Movie" screenplay on YouTube.

About Me

Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
