Maury Chaykin and Timothy Hutton starred in an A&E series based on Nero Wolfe - very different from the earlier Bill Conrad series but still enjoyable. The script hew more closely to the books. A curiosity of the series, fun once you get used to it, is the same repertory group appearing in different roles in each episode. But most on this board will much prefer the more than 30 novels and more short stories, because Wolfe is portrayed as a gourmand who employs a full-time chef and argues with him about ingredients. Off-topic but he also employs a full-time orchid gardener and there is a lot about orchids in the novels as well.

Not sure if she's supersize, but Amy, the titular character of Lady Chevy by John Woods, is definitely a BBW. I'm about halfway through and it's great so far, very well-written and from an interesting perspective. However it's also a serious downer and anyone suffering Covid blues or blues in general should maybe wait til they're in a place where they can handle it. I'm hoping for a happy ending, we'll see.
