I had not read any rumors, but I have been wondering the same thing all season. These two characters act like co-workers, not lovers, most of the time. If they really have had a falling-out, that is way too bad, but they need to act over it. If Marlowe is trying to avoid the Moonlighting trap, then he is trying too hard, because this season grates. It is just not right-feeling.
I do not believe that celebrities, movie stars, television personalities, whatever you want to call them, live lives quite like normal people. Plop that group down in Sandy, Utah, or Custer, South Dakota, or Hinckley, Illinois, and they would mostly be married. Possibly not the child.
I don't think there is too much Amy at all. I really enjoy her character; she has toned down and smartened up socially from her original persona, and shown she is capable of growing emotionally. Last night Sheldon took another tiny baby step, when he comforted Leonard about the problems with Penny, without making any inappropriate or hurtful comments. (We will ignore the "kick me" sign). I was getting kind of tired of waiting on Sheldon to grow up, and there had been precious few hopeful signs of that in more than a season. But there it was! While I don't believe that it is possible for Sheldon to become normal, given his mental state, I do believe that it would be possible for him to improve to the point where he could live a more normal life. I spent most of my childhood and adult working life in and around universities; there are some very geeky folks who nevertheless manage to live vanilla lives. If they ever let him learn, as a man that smart is capable of doing, he might attain that, too. It would make for a nice final episode of the series ....
Wasn't that character retiring and moving to Hawaii?
They sound like an utterly charming couple. And lovely of them to rescue dogs. I hope that she appears a lot this season. It is sometimes annoying to me that so many programs have so many single persons as adult characters. While apparently this is an increasing trend in the USA, it is by no means as common in a workplace as they portray it on television. I don't know about Perlmutter, but otherwise, Gates and Ryan are the only married characters in this cast. Just not normal. So, it would be nice to see more of Mrs. Ryan.

I think Margo Martindale is brilliant; I loved her on Dexter. I have been a fan of Beau Bridges since we were both children, and I watched him on his father's television show. With that in mind, I had high hopes for The Millers. Those two (I thought) could rise above any bad writing. I guess I was wrong. That show, much as I want to watch it, makes me cringe. Ms. Martindale's character is too far over the top. She is presented as a good mother, despite her excesses, but she is NOT a good mother. Beau Bridges's character is too stupid to believe; no one of even average intelligence can be that oblivious to the way the world and its devices run. I have never seen the three young ones before, the son, daughter, and son-in-law. And if I happen to see them again, I won't remember them from this. I intend to forget about the rest of this program as quickly as possible, too. I never saw any of the five programs in your list, so I have no opinion on which of those may have been worse than The Millers, if any. (If that is possible.)
Considering Vance's temper, I cannot imagine that there would NOT be more friction between Vance and Addison. Vance is almost always on the prod. (I just LOVE Ben Vereen -- since his Chicken George days). Palmer and Breena are sweet, kind, generous, smart, well-employed, respectable individuals, very much in love. They have a lot to offer to a child, and any agency which met them should be able to see that. They should not have more trouble than anyone else getting a child. They might have difficulty getting a healthy white baby, though. The supply is limited. I'm always up for coffee cake. Ducky's a wizard at profiling.
I was being sarcastic. You are being stupid. I watch the show every week, I own all the DVDs of NCIS and JAG, and I have been commenting on this show here for years. Get your head in the game.
