  1. If we are going to face nuclear war I hope it at least doesn't happen until Twin Peaks is over.

      After Black Panther!

  2. Just to warn my fellow Twin Peaks fans - episode 14 apparently aired in Germany so spoilers may be around.

      LMAO!!!! I haven't even seen tonight's yet!

      It's a good one (Episode 13 I mean)

  3. I was thinking of using an electric toothbrush to help with my cleaning, but I read that it may cause tinitus. Have you had any experiences about this? 

  4. RIP Deborah Watling :( At least she can see her loved ones, and Pat Troughton, again.

  5. I shouldn't be, but I'm still surprised and sickened that the media is making a spectacle about OJ even all these years later. And people will gawk and clap like trained seals, as always.

      +1 the focus is ridiculous but news is all about sensationalism or fear mongering now.

  6. I'm never had much interest in Thomas Dekker (he was good in Kaboom though) but he responded to Bryan Fuller's passive-aggressive games about as well as he could have.

      I had to google it, but I've always liked him.

  7. So what did happen with Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina anyway?

  8. Recent Teri Garr interview. I think she was winding the interviewer up a bit.

      I feel for Teri, she's dealt with a lot health wise, but she didn't come off well in this interview - bitter and mean.

  9. 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

      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.

      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

      Nothin'ButAttitude

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

  10. 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

      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

      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.

  11. Really enjoyed Twin Peaks tonight.

  12. 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/

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

  13. @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

      Nothin'ButAttitude

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

  14. 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

      Wow, she looks great.

  15. 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

      BetterForgotten

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

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

     

  17. 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.

      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.

      AdelaideCate007

      I loved that movie as a kid too lol.

  18. 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.

      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.

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

    1. Vee

      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

      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

      Nothin'ButAttitude

      RIP, Roger Moore. 

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

     

  21. 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

      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

      YRBB

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

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

     

  23. 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...

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

    1. MissLlanviewPA

      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

      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.
