I was a fierce fan of a TV show called Dawson's Creek during its six season run some years ago, probably because I adored the winsome Katie Holmes, who played Joey. I was reminded of that last night when I visited the wonderful Geffen Playhouse.
So, in one day I heard that Harry's Law -- a show I enjoyed for its wit and intelligence as much as the fact that its lead character was a 63-year-old woman -- was being canceled, and I gave Girls on HBO one more chance. I say "ugh" to both.
It does not seem quite possible that Jack Nicholson could be turning 75 today. He seems ageless, particularly when you revisit his best films. And that's just what we should all do to mark the occasion.
