I’m in agreement with you here. I can’t believe, with all the talented Jewish actresses/comediennes in New York, they came up with Jane Lynch. I mean, Jackie Hoffman, if she could contain the urge to mug, would have been divine.

It still bugs me that Bea Arthur and Estelle Getty were hired to play Italian Catholics (they were never convincing, as such). Why the creators chose not to make the characters Jewish, I’ll never know. Estelle Getty’s tenor and rhythm always reminded me of me Aunt Rhoda, who spoke fluent Yiddish.

But so does Nancy Walker as Aida Morgenstern, Rhoda’s mother. Nancy wasn’t Jewish, but she sure was convincing — at least in her earlier appearances.
