First produced in 2007, Keith Huff's “A Steady Rain,” made it all the way to Broadway by 2009. That record-breaking sellout starred Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig. Obviously, the play's current outing at the Odyssey doesn't have the same mega-wattage of the Broadway production. Still, even sans established stars, Huff's taut two-hander remains a stellar vehicle for two accomplished actors. Sal Viscuso and Thomas Vincent Kelly are undeniably that, despite a few marked line lapses on the opening weekend.  Viscuso plays Denny, a hard-edged cop whose casual racism has kept him from promotion.

Oh, to live in a world where "Last Tango in Halifax" becomes as crazy-popular as "Downton Abbey. " Both air here on PBS, although "Last Tango" is not under the "Masterpiece" imprint, and both feature British legends (Maggie Smith in "Downton," Derek Jacobi in "Last Tango"). Also, both explore, with no shortage of sentiment or humor, the vagaries of time and tide as well as the essential significance of family. In many ways - freshness of characters, complexity of insight, courage of conviction - "Last Tango" is the better show.

Here is a transcript of Jodie Foster's acceptance speech in receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award at Sunday night's Golden Globes: "Well, for all of you 'SNL' fans, I'm 50! I'm 50! You know, I need to do that without this dress on, but you know, maybe later at Trader Vic's, boys and girls. What do you say? I'm 50! You know, I was going to bring my walker tonight but it just didn't go with the cleavage. "Robert [Downey Jr.], I want to thank you for everything: for your bat-crazed, rapid-fire brain, the sweet intro.
