Las Vegas' Cheryl Ladd ages gracefully in Though None Go with Me (inset).
Cheryl Ladd, grandmother? Have we come to that point? Sort of, but not really. In the Hallmark Channel presentation Though None Go with Me (premiering Saturday at 9 pm/ET), Charlie's onetime Angel disappears behind old-age makeup to play Elizabeth Leroy Bishop, a woman who relates stories from her colorful and oft-times turbulent life — Amy Grabow plays Elizabeth as a young woman — to a grandchild. As anyone who has seen Ladd on Las Vegas knows, it must have taken a lot of powder to make this heavenly beauty look anything but robust.

Las VegasWell, they didn't call this episode "Down and Dirty" for nothing. A porn convention takes up temporary residence at the Montecito, which means I can't write about half the things that happened; I'm going to take the high road and remain somewhat family-friendly. Let me just say that there was an ample amount of adult-oriented puns, situations, fun porn movie titles and a cameo from some guy I've never heard of named Ron Jeremy. (That's the story I'm sticking to.)
Let's move on to things of the Barry Bostwick persuasion, shall we? Called on to direct Big Ed's TV commercial, it turns out his character used to date Ed's wife, Jillian. Let's see, Cheryl Ladd and Barry Bostwick. A few Googles later and I find out that back in the day (1978), Barry was in a Se
Poor Ed. He has to take pills for his hypertension and find a way to stay destressed even though he runs one of Vegas' megacasinos that's always the target of nefarious types looking to act out some nefarious schemes. On top of that, some stupid fool has stolen the big guy's identity. Wait, there's more. Unbeknownst (I love that word. It's so Speed Racer.) to him, Mike gets Ed's precious Aston Martin stolen and chopped up. Stay destressed? I don't think so. At least this all leads to some pretty funny Ed and Danny scenes. James Caan and Josh Duhamel really have this father-son-type chemistry down pat. And is there anything better than finding out something about Sam's mysterious past? Don't answer that. But come on, admit it: Her brother shows up (half brother, I get it Sam) and the girl vibrates all kinds of nervousness over her coworkers finding stuff out about her. That's enjoyable! Learning that as a kid she had a lisp and she could Electric Boogaloo wit
If you love topless women with ample assets, Ed, Mike and Danny solving a couple capers and yes, more guest stars than you can shake a stick at, then you've come to the right casino. Counterfeit chips keep Ed and Mike busy. No less than Richard Lewis, Paul Anka and Dennis Rodman ante up for a pseudo celebrity-poker showdown with Danny. At this point, I really was hoping Phil Gordon and Dave Foley would make a surprise appearance. Instead we get to hear Rodman ask when the Pussycat Dolls go on. Las Vegas, you slay me. At least you have the good sense to bring Mitch back into the security fold. Welcome back, Mitch Longley!
One of my favorite over-the-top moments (out of so many) is when Ed is interrogating some Barbie doll who seems to be bestest buds with the word "like." She like, talks like this but can't really like, tell her story in a way like, anyone would understand. OK? Like, totally! As for Lara Flynn Boyle, her
