On the awesomeness scale, the pairing of Alan Mandell and Barry McGovern in Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" is off the charts, a fantasy face-off in a league with George Washington versus Abe Lincoln or giant octopus versus giant squid — even though "Godot" is not the most action-packed of the existential classics. Mandell and McGovern are two of the most experienced and widely admired interpreters of Beckett's work, and beginning Wednesday at the Mark Taper Forum, they will perform together for the first time.

Dick Van Dyke's most popular movie role is that of Bert, the Cockney jack-of-all-trades and best bud with the practically perfect nanny ( Julie Andrews) in Walt Disney's beloved 1964 musical " Mary Poppins. " It was Van Dyke who introduced the Oscar-winning best song "Chim Chim Cher-ee" by Richard and Robert Sherman. But Van Dyke is quick to point out that the "British people have never left me off the hook" about his less-than-picture-perfect Cockney accent. "They just tease me to death," he says, laughing.

Tuesday night, two actresses use their considerable talents to freshen up a pair of shows drawn from the "tried-and-true" pile of network programming, one with much more success than the other. Zooey Deschanel joins sister Emily ("Bones") on the Fox lot, starring in Elizabeth Meriwether's "New Girl," a roommate comedy with a surprisingly satisfying twist. After an ugly breakup, Jess (Deschanel) decides she's tired of being the dorky duckling in a bevy of swans — her roommate Cece (Hannah Simone)

Re "Family-Therapy Participants Try to Shed Childhood Anguish" (July 14): I would like to offer another viewpoint concerning John Bradshaw and the workshops he gives. In 1988, I participated in one of John Bradshaw's inner child workshops. Already 18 years into a recovery process from childhood trauma, which included incest, alcoholic parents and severe physical and emotional abuse, there was still a missing puzzle piece. A few years before John's workshop, I had begun to search for my inner child.

Some Mission Viejo parents appear to be lacking both a sense of humor and trust in their children at Mission Viejo High School. Surely a little devilishness on the part of young people raised in Christian homes is not going to condemn them to hell. It's the young people's school so let them choose how to present it. The parents are upset by a cartoonish depiction of an otherworldly figure. The situation might be different if there was an actual photo of Old Scratch. Who knows what the devil looks like?

Attention Teen Beat editors: Uh, sorry, I meant L.A. Times. It was pretty difficult to tell the difference Sept. 17 with all the gushing going on ("Don't Call Him Sexy" by Bronwen Hruska and "Burning Bush" by Elysa Gardner). How many adjectives do we really need, I wonder? "Jutting jaw muscles and soulful blue eyes," "unkempt goatee . . . calm . . . his arm drapes easily over the back of the sofa," "lean, sinuous frame, high cheekbones and dark elegance" and my personal favorite, "While their appeal to teen-age girls would go without question to anyone who isn't blind.

Charles Hess was dedicated to his contact lenses--until he bought a pair of bookish wire frames he could decorate with colorful plastic tubing. His life hasn't been the same since. "I've never gone back to contacts," says the Los Angeles graphic designer, smiling beneath thin, marbleized-blue frames that complement his blue eyes. Modern eye wear, as Hess discovered, is irresistibly fashionable.
