I still haven't gotten used to Mankiewicz, he's so smarmy and sarcastic and ironic in an obvious way, painfully trying too hard to pander to a younger demographic, which TCM has been coveting for years. I don't blame the network for going that route, but they don't have to do it in such a superficial way. Robert Osborne had CLASS and that's something I just don't see in Mankiewicz, at least not yet.
