    Yeah, that was great! Do they not know the name of the people trying out, because Hugh Laurie was already well known by then? He looked a lot like Hugh Laurie too, LOL.

    Agree. When I spent a year in England in the mid '80's I had long chats with the milkman about (American) country music, of which he was a huge fan--and only one of many. So many of them could "sing" with a good country twang or Southern accent.

    Interesting! I've often wondered why so many Brits default to a southern dialect when imitating Americans. I wonder if this may have something to do with it.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Her name IRL is Olivia Wilde! Love her! She has moved on to motion pictures! She did make an appearance early in this last season in one epi!



    This was a great Finale! From the behind the scenes (which I thought was so cool to do) to the actual Finale! So sad to see the show gone. We have watched it for years. My husband has Hugh Laurie's New Orleans CD! It's fabulous!

    The one prior to it was Warren Zevon's "Keep me in your Heart". For personal reasons, this song usually makes me bawl like a baby. This time I was smiling through the tears.
    Keep Me In Your Heart really caught my attention. I can't figure out where I heard this song before. It was also featured on some other show or documentary. I recall balling my eyes out, but I can't recall what it was. Isn't that crazy? LOL
