  1. Who is this Halsey who seems to keep popping up to talk [!@#$%^&*] and dress like she just got off Rainbrow Brite? Is she our new emo woe heroine? 

    1. Nothin'ButAttitude


      She's some trashy singer that got a little bit of traction last year, but has lost it since. Apparently, all her old, bigoted tweets are coming out to haunt her and rightfully so.

    2. DRW50


      I saw her defending some homophobic rapper against "political correctness" while bragging about what a "socially conscious" person she is. And talking [!@#$%^&*] about Igloo Azaela and Britney Spears. The former is awful but she seems to be back to obscurity. Britney Spears is mostly in her own world and not really bothering anybody. This girl needs to get better media people.

    3. Nothin'ButAttitude


      Well she won't need media people now b/c she's about to fade into obscurity after all of this. 

  2. With so much wrong in the world today I'm glad that at least Megyn Kelly continues to flop and make NBC look terrible.

    1. DramatistDreamer


      I read that she lost in the ratings to America's Funniest Home Videos. So fitting that she should lose to a show that many people don't even realize is still on the air.

    2. KMan101


      I was so happy to see her show sinking in the ratings. She's extremely overrated and I think I predicted she wouldn't bring the ratings like they thought she would.


      She pissed off a lot of people by going through with the Alex Jones interview. And NBC received a lot of flack for not pulling it.


      I think her morning show will also tank but we'll see.


      It's like Katie and Meredith. Both charming women but their talk shows basically failed. Sometimes the grass isn't greener but I guess you have to at least give it a try.

  3. Really enjoyed Twin Peaks tonight.

  4. RIP Stephen Furst, long-suffering Elliot Axelrod of St. Elsewhere. Thanks for giving St. Eligius so much heart. http://deadline.com/2017/06/stephen-furst-dies-animal-house-obituary-1202115443/

    1. Wendy


      And also very well known as Flounder from "Animal House"! May he RIP.

  5. @Nothin'ButAttitude did you hear about that CBS All Access game show Da'vonne will be on? I won't be watching as I don't have that but I wish her luck...

    1. Nothin'ButAttitude


      I sure did! She's supposed to be on Candy Crush with Paul. Unfortunately, Caleb/Frankie are on there too. <_<

  6. The only good thing about Bill Maher's bile is that it has given some media attention to the lovely Anne Marie Johnson. I wish I saw her on TV more often http://thegrapevine.theroot.com/ann-marie-johnson-to-bill-maher-just-stop-be-a-little-1795918873

    1. Vee


      Wow, she looks great.

  7. Watching Streisand's Other Instruments special. It's fascinating...definitely would not be aired today. 

    1. I Am A Swede

      I Am A Swede

      I have her tv-specials on dvd, but I've still not watched all of them. But this sounds intriguing, so I must find the time to do that soon. 

    2. BetterForgotten


      I think she wasn't a fan of doing it and only did it to fulfill some contractual obligation. 

  8. The British Soap Awards were held tonight. I'll post the results here and it should be covered up under replies.


  9. RIP Robert Michael Morris. So funny on The Comeback.

      I actually liked it, albeit more for the cast (especially Edward Herrmann). I used to watch it a lot as a kid.

    3. Cat


      I LOVED that movie! And wtf?????? Have they learned nothing from the colossal flop that is the Dirty Dancing remake? I cannot think of any actor or actress today who could replicate Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel's chemistry in that movie.

    4. AdelaideCate007


      I loved that movie as a kid too lol.

  10. Between Schumer's movie flopping and the Baywatch revival (how creepy does Efron look in that...) flopping, I'm glad Americans have good taste in some areas.

      Isn't Trainwreck her only other film besides Snatched? I think she can be funny, but she is such a White Feminist (as in, generally not seeing beyond the problems privileged white women face, as opposed to poorer women/women of color/queer women) at times, she can really drive me nuts. (And that interview last year with Partner in White Feminist Crime Lena Dunham? Yeesh.

    3. cassadine1991


      Efron looks roided out. He got too muscly. 

    4. AlexElizabeth


      Anytime the commercial for that terrible Snatched movie comes on, I have to mute the TV. I cannot even stand to listen to Amy Schumer. She is so terrible and unfunny that it's painful.

  11. RIP Roger Moore. My first Bond, and a man who brought a natural wit and droll humor to many a role. 

    1. Vee


      What a classy fella.

      I remember an interesting series of anecdotes from his released diaries on the set of Live and Let Die - talking about how pleased he was to get to make out with Gloria Hendry, and dismissing the racists.

    2. DramatistDreamer


      He was the Roger Moore that I first saw as a kid. I later learned about Sean Connery.

      Today just feels like one of those down days for me. I'm trying to push past it but there's just a lot of disheartening news that happened in the past 24 hours.

    3. Nothin'ButAttitude


      RIP, Roger Moore. 

  12. Katy Perry continues downward spiral via an awkward Golden Girls homage (the host is kind of cute...). 


  13. Watching this Grantchester show and they don't even try to pretend that people aren't watching in large part to see James Norton half-naked. I wish more producers were this intelligent...

    1. ~bl~


      And in the US it airs on PBS, so funny.

    2. DRW50


      It's definitely a PBS type show, although a bit looser than some of their offerings. Gratuitous shots in the bath are always a nice surprise though.

    3. YRBB


      I've never heard of this show before but I hear you and will definitely be checking out. 

  14. One of the more frightening intros I've ever seen. This would have creeped me out as a kid. 


  15. Watching Postcards from the Edge for the first time and noticed that Carrie Fisher put a lookalike for herself in a supporting role (Meryl's roommate) even as the main role was also based on herself. What a fascinating person Carrie was...

  16. Katy Perry seems to be having a slow breakdown...well at least it's more interesting than her attempt at "woke pop."

    1. MissLlanviewPA


      I like that she's at least making an effort, because I really think she's being genuine in her commitment to activism. She grew up as the daughter of fundamentalist Christian preachers, and I think she's made a very real effort to make up for the way she was raised. 

    2. DRW50


      I think she genuinely wanted Hillary to win, and shared her positive values, but if she has a real voice for activism, doing a single with misogynists/homophobes and comparing the color of her hair to Obama being black is a bit of a pause button.

  17. I've spent about 9 episodes of the new One Day at a Time telling myself the doctor couldn't be Ned Nyerson from Groundhog Day because the actor was dead. Apparently he isn't! Oops...

    1. Soapsuds


      I am enjoying the original one on Logo. So great to see episodes I haven't seen in years. BTW...has season 2 of the new ODAAT started? I haven't even finished watching Season 1.

    2. DRW50


      Not yet.

    3. MissLlanviewPA


      *Ryerson, actually. :) 

  18. @Khan was it you who said you thought the last season of Hart to Hart was terrible? If so, why?

    1. Khan


      Let's be honest: the basic premise of "Hart to Hart" -- a billionaire, his wife, their butler and dog "go and get involved/ 'til the mystery is solved" -- was total pablum.  But producer Mart Crowley lent the series a light, knowing touch that helped the ridiculous -- and I do mean ridiculous -- stories go down easier.  When he left before the start of the fifth and final season (to work on TV movies), he took that quality with him.  Or so I thought.  The stories seemed to be trying too hard to be clever; and the romantic interludes between the Harts, which had been the series' calling card, now felt more like afterthoughts.  The ones who replaced Crowley, the La Monds, Kasica & Scheff and Roos just didn't understand that we weren't watching the entire time for great mysteries (because, frankly, they never were) but for the unique, throwback chemistry among Robert Wagner, Stefanie Powers and Lionel Stander (and, of course, "Freeway").

      Which is ANOTHER reason why I love "Murder, She Wrote" as much as I do.  Peter S. Fischer quit after the seventh season, but even though the next four seasons (one with David Moessinger as showrunner, the last three with Angela Lansbury herself) presented a less folksy, more modern show, they were smart enough NOT to tamper with what made the show so successful (namely, Jessica Fletcher and her inquisitive but non-judgmental nature) so that those seasons are enjoyable in their own right.

    2. DRW50


      Thanks. I agree with you. It did seem a bit desperate later on. What did you think of the TV movies? 

    3. Khan


      The first one was...okay.  It recaptured some, but not all, of the original series' magic.  (Honestly, I can't think of a reunion movie that DOES recapture that kind of feeling.)  But it was discombobulating for me to see Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers so much older (even if, chemistry-wise, they really hadn't missed a beat) and Lionel Stander so frail.  Moreover, without that old house of theirs (which they did away with by way of an explosion, IIRC, since those sets were long gone), it just felt like something was missing.


      Years ago, when they switched the reunion movies from NBC to another network, Stefanie Powers remarked that the move was, in fact, a good thing, since NBC kind of forced them into a more specific, murder mystery mode (in order to fit the Friday night sleuthing lineup) which, she said, had never really been their forte.  I didn't watch too many after the first movie, but having caught up on Cozi and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, I am inclined to agree with her.

      Speaking of, I wonder whatever became of the reboot?  Weren't they planning to bring back the series but with the Harts as a same-sex couple?  

  19. Just saw a mod on a private board I'm on bully and attack a poster and delete their material solely for liking a character they hated. Sometimes I take for granted how freeform SON is compared to a lot of boards out there.

      It's not.

      Was this a soap board or for another genre?

      I read that obit this morning and immediately went to You Tube. A phenomenal talent!

  20. RIP Chelsea Brown of Laugh in and cult movie fame. She also had a long career in Australia. http://www.metv.com/stories/rip-chelsea-brown-of-rowan-martins-laugh-in

  21. Ugh at Joss Whedon directing Batgirl. Another DC movie I won't be watching. I can't wait to see how many Whedon fanboys suddenly start loving DC movies because of a few generic quips and girl power buzzwords.

  22. I was listening to Work and the subtitles said "I dealt with you the nicest." I thought it was, "I dealt with you tonight, sis." I prefer my version...
