Greg2.6K's Boob Tube Combosity War: Return Fire

Post by Greg2600 » May 28th, 2018, 6:08 pm

Day Two

I opted to take NJ Transit in. However, for the first time in ages, I tried a few local stations where parking is free but scarce. I had surprising luck to find spots though, and that meant I was only paying $10.50 round trip! The downside was that if I didn’t make the midnight train at Penn Station, I’d be stuck for another 90 minutes.

I arrived and put all my early eggs into a geriatric basket. Basically, the cast (including Steenburgen again) were promoting a film that included Candice Bergen of Murphy Brown and Don Johnson of Miami Vice. The first stop was a mess, and they did next to nothing. I did manage to help Class score Luke Wilson, who I had already. Josh and I slipped away and decided to gamble on another spot. After a long while, the action picks up, and the cast are in fact on their way! On the way in, Candice signs quite a bit, and I get the photo as does Josh. Unbeknownst to us, Don has scurried in when no one was looking. We wait and wait and wait, with rain approaching, and he refuses photos leaving. This was really dumb on my part, I should have just left, as Joresky was uptown scoring names from ABC.

By the time we got up there, it was a windy mess with rain. Had to wait it out, and then run. I was planning to do a party spot, but with the rain, that was not happening, so I had to go to another but the rail was quite full. This spot stunk, because it had exits on either side of the building. Since most people were in the back, I figured that was the spot of action, and it was. Now I will have to admit, I’ve never heard of most of these people, so they were totally “get if there.” They would include Christina Ochoa (A Million Little Things), Britt Robertson (For the People), Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez and Chris Warren Jr. (The Fosters), Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars), Bryan Craig and Lincoln Younes (Grand Hotel), and Jack Falahee (How to Get Away with Murder).

On the “hey I actually know them” front, real happy to get Taran Killam (SNL), Romany Malco (The 40 Year Old Virgin), but I couldn’t get Lecy Goranson of Roseanne yet again. She did a few people near the door, but that was it. In fact, a fan claimed he knew her from his neighborhood, but didn’t get to her in time to get her to come over. Unfortunately I also missed any sighting of Demian Bichir, Roselyn Sanchez, and Scott Foley. Due to the train deal, I more or less speed walked down to Penn to make sure I made the train, while Bichir returned very late at night. Another big want, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, ran in and did nothing for nobody basically the whole trip.

Day Three

Back at it, this time to the same spot from the night before. People were in the front waiting, so I went to the back. I was just biding my time, when one other collector arrived. She was really itching for Roseanne Barr herself, and had some info on when she might leave, so I stuck it out back there. Michael Fishman left, but stopped and chatted with us about the show’s return for a good 10 minutes, which was really enlightening. Such a friendly guy. Anyway, a car pulls up, and the collector freaks out, as it is Roseanne’s. Out she came from the building, stopping to hug a friend first. Then she asked for photos, and Roseanne proceeded to comically jab at us, but actually kept her shades off and did them. I was gonna selfie, but the guard asked to take it, so I handed it over. He then proceeded to fidget with my camera to turn the flash off, because Roseanne doesn’t want it on. Once again, she swears at us, but whispers thank you I appreciate it to me. Reason being that I lapped praise on her for the success, and that I was (truthfully) happy to have the show back. He took a couple, and then off she went! Shortly thereafter, Lecy returned from a walk, and refused to stop!

With that success, I waited on the other side of the building, where the whole group had gotten a stoned Keanu Reeves as he walked by randomly. Everyone I saw either ran in, or I had already. Stunk because I wanted James Roday and David Guintoli, but they went in too quickly. And here came the rain again, and a lot of it this time. Just hours and hours wasted here, so I moved on with a few others for CBS names. Unfortunately, too much rain at this spot, but I had a sneak on where they might go next, so I left.

Too Wet!

There I was joined by friends Suzanne, Class, Joresky, Andrew, and a few more. However, the spot was maybe the best of the week, and we got a lot of people fairly easily. Right off the bat we spot John Francis Daley from Waiting and Freaks and Geeks! Then I get a photo from Jim Nance, CBS sportscaster. Then comes a van with the Murphy Brown cast I wanted. I loved the old show, and glad it’s come back. On hand were Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, and Grant Shaud, and I got photos with all of them. Never thought I could do so with these folks, as they’ve sort of fallen off the face of the earth. A bit later the action picked up again, and I got Damon Wayans Jr. and Felix Mallard (Happy Together), Marcel Spears and Sheaun McKinney (The Neighborhood), and a big one for me, Jeremy Sisto from Clueless and Wrong Turn!

Once again, like Cinderella, my time was short, and I had to book it for Penn Station, so Andrew and I left. Never saw Jay Hernandez though, he must have partied late. What’s funny is I get on the train, and sit down, and there across from me is actor Nathan Darrow from Gotham! He was half asleep, seeming to be rehearsing his lines. What’s even funnier is that another collector told me she had seen him on the train the week before.

Roseanne is very big. Probably the biggest miss from TV Week for me to be posted here. Excellent stuff all around.
