Carol Burnett: 90 Years of Laughter + Love (TV Special 2023). 1h 24m

“Carol Burnett has LONG been one of our favorites … a talented performer as a comedian (both vocal and physical), singer, and dramatic actress. She did it all on her long running variety series, and thatu0026#39;s where she earned the majority of her fans.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhile this tribute had some entertaining and heart-warming moments, sadly many segments of it just laid eggs. It seemed many of the presenters had only a cursory connection to Carol Burnettu0026#39;s life and career, and unfortunately I suppose thatu0026#39;s to be expected since, at 90, sheu0026#39;s simply outlived most of her contemporaries.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStill, weu0026#39;d have loved to see more retrospective of Carolu0026#39;s own performances and fewer show tunes by people we donu0026#39;t know and who frankly werenu0026#39;t at all entertaining. At times Carol herself seemed a bit baffled by the offerings, and really only moved by the attendees that meant something real in her career … notably Julia Andrews and Vicki Lawrence.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe best part of this special were the interview segments with Carol herself and clips from The Carol Burnett Show, and they did pick some of the best remembered moments, like Tim Conwayu0026#39;s Siamese Twin Elephant bit. :-)”
