What a genuine thrill to lay eyes on the Honorable Judge John A Gatling AKA Venus Flytrap AKA (and most importantly to this context)
Frank Parrish from the much loved and often mourned, "Frank's Place" (1987).
Yep, Tim Reid was in the cast last night.
I guess there's no way to avoid it, but, sometimes the playlist is a tad forced and obvious, the loser keyboard player who we all know is riding on the dress hem of his fiddle playing mate was singing "Junko Partner", just before he was outed for "scoring in Houston".
Getting back to Frank's Place, there were only 22 episodes, I know I'll own the TREME BOX SET one day, it would be so much cooler if it included the other great N'orlins series.
"I was born to ramble, born to rove
Some men are searchin for the Holy Grail
But there ain't nothin sweeter
Than riden' the rails."
