THE KOMINSKY METHOD - Season 1 | ©2019 Netflix

THE KOMINSKY METHOD is an uncharacteristic creation for writer/executive producer Chuck Lorre. Lorre is known for the CBS comedy hits he created or co-created, including the long-running TWO AND A HALF MEN, MIKE & MOLLY, the continuing MOM, the just-concluded twelve seasons of THE BIG BANG THEORY and that show’s prequel spinoff, the renewed YOUNG SHELDON. THE KOMINSKY METHOD, now in its first season on Netflix and in production on its second, has its share of humor. However, it deals seriously with issues of aging, failing health and death.

On July 29th a big party was held by CBS/The CW/Showtime for the Television Critics Annual Summer Press Tour at The Event, which is actually the upper parking lot where the department store Robinson’s/May in Beverly Hills used to be. Taking pictures before heading inside it was quite a turnout of stars from the three networks of their new shows and returning shows of the three networks CBS, The CW and Showtime. I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »
