What happened to that post where you looked up "ebert" on google images and the first thing that popped up was a picture of a stripper with bert and ernie dolls seemingly going down on her?

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Wednesday, 29 December 2021 15:20 (one year ago) link

I didn't see this series, but I did a search in the archives for "Tierney" and only found one or two posts that seemed to be about this show, no entire thread (unless it didn't mention her name).

Halfway there but for you, Wednesday, 29 December 2021 15:25 (one year ago) link

yeah that is what i found too -- lots of love for Maura T but no thread for this series! where she features prominently!!

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Wednesday, 29 December 2021 15:38 (one year ago) link

I did the same, seems like there were some posts on the '10 favourite TV shows' thread.
