Question: I think the last time I wrote to you was trying to decide whether to watch Lone Star or The Event in a time-slot match-up. You rightly pointed me in the direction of Lone Star in terms of quality, with clearly a star in the making in James Wolk, but sadly, it was a victim of the wrong network (Fox) for a show that probably was meant for cable, so it died an early death. Not that it matters in the long run, considering The Event also wilted. Now we have another Monday night time-slot match-up...

Molly Parker, Swingtown
Molly Parker likes playing pioneering women. On the mean streets of Deadwood (circa 1876), she was headstrong Alma Garret, and now on Swingtown (circa 1976), she's open-minded suburbanite Susan Miller. Parker talked with us about the buzz surrounding her new series — and no, it wasn't generated by that wacky '70s weed. (Swingtown airs Thursdays at 10 pm/ET, CBS.)
TV Guide: Swingtown is creating a stir.Molly Parker: It's interesting. Clearly the show doesn't shy away from sexual subject matter. But it's not a show about sex, it's a show about the inside of these marriages.
TV Guide: Any '70s memories? Parker: My memories are those of a child. I grew up in Canada on a farm. I remember the music, the clothes... it was a much freer time. I have no memory of swin
All the sex, that is? Clad in my '70s-feel Adidas track jacket and ringer tee, I asked Grant Show and Molly Parker about their saucy new series, and whether the rumor is true that CBS is toning down Swingtown's tawdrier content. Grab a friend (...or two) and enjoy the video!

Bursting with sex drugs sex open collars sex Farrah hair and sex the sure-to-be controversial Swingtown evokes the milieu of the Me Decade with a refreshing lack of retro camp We really wanted to make it feel like it was a lived-in 70s explains executive producer Alan PoulIn keeping with that claimed verisimilitude couples swap partners like theyre recipes no pair more enthusiastically than Grant Show and Lana Parrillas Tom and Trina Decker Molly Parker and Jack Davenport join in the debauchery as their curious new friends Susan and Bruce Miller whose previous neighbors were the straitlaced Thompsons Josh Hopkins Miriam Shor What keeps the show alive is not the titillation Poul says Its about three marriages that [each] have a different set of rules All were trying to do is be true to the times GJ Donnelly
CBS announced on Wednesday that Swingtown, which, until the strike hit, was supposed to launch midseason, now will get a summer debut. The nontraditional launch time for a scripted series, executive producer Carol Barbee tells the Reporter, actually "is perfect for Swingtown since the pilot takes place on the Bicentennial Fourth of July." Ahh, memories of me donning knickers for a Rogers Elementary School play....Swingtown, for those who can't remember back to last May's upfronts (when it was first brandished), follows couples experimenting with sexual and social mores in 1970s Chicago. It's like The Ice Storm minus the nympho Christina Ricci. It does star, however, Grant Show, Josh Hopkins (Brothers & Sisters), Miriam Shor (The West Wing), Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean), Molly Parker (Deadwood) and Lana Parrilla (Boomtown).
CBS announced today its 2007-2008 Fall Prime-time lineup, featuring five new series: one comedy, three dramas and one reality program.
