More Gleason

Posted by / in Me Me Me / 1 comment

Last night I went to the memorial for my dear friend and mentor Michael Gleason, who passed away a few weeks ago. Here is a short essay I wrote for the memorial keepsake that was given out to family members.
I am the writer I am today largely because of Michael Gleason. And in some ways, I am the man I am today because of him, too…

The Warrant For My Arrest Scam

Posted by / in Scams / 14 comments

I had great fun today talking with “Lt. David O’Neal” of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, who left a message on my voicemail to let me know that a warrant had been issued for my arrest. He told me I had to call him back today at 213-334-6708. I did…knowing full well it was […]

Michael Gleason Has Passed Away

Posted by / in Current Affairs / 2 comments

I can’t really collect my thoughts right now to express how much he meant to me…it’s not easy to type with tears in my eyes. He and Ernie Wallengren, who died way too young, were my mentors in the television business…and in so many other ways.

Each week Bull is hired by someone very rich to influence and manipulate the jury in the criminal trial of someone who may or may not be innocent (but who, of course, will always turn out to be innocent, because our hero can be seen using his superpowers to get a bad guy off).

2016-2017 TV Season Review: MacGYVER

Posted by / in Television, TV Revivals / 5 comments

I don’t think I’ve seen more than a couple episodes of the original MacGYVER, so I went into CBS’ new reboot with a totally open mind and no nostalgic baggage. I could look at it as a new series, rather than comparing it to my memories of a beloved old show. I wasn’t wowed.
