  1. The Politics Thread

    Now trending again, the Svengali of our times:
  2. Eden Riegel popping up in the One Day at a Time Season 1 finale just makes me bitter all over again that AMC and OLTL 2.0 weren't on Netflix where they belonged with better management.

  3. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Stacy Haiduk (Patty, Y&R; allegedly soon to be DAYS) has a surprise cameo in episode 2 of HBO's excellent Sharp Objects, playing a meth-addicted cancer-ravaged hick mother. I didn't recognize her until I saw her name in the credits. She was great.
  4. Best of luck to VA but Jordan has absolutely no character due to the writing. Best to write her out and conceive someone new.
  5. The Politics Thread

    It's Iraq all over again. A lot of them still want to pretend that the Russia story is too diffuse, never enough to prove, etc. The reason is because admitting it's all real is both 1) a massive system shock which upends our democracy as we know it, indicates a massive national danger and destroys any remaining illusion of the same old political games, and 2) an indictment that they are culpable in this by way of their handling of the election and how they let ratings, Russian strategy, psy-ops and resentment of the Clintons and the Democrats shape their coverage. They had a very, very hard time admitting that on Iraq - it took years - and while some in media have said it, for many it will be harder now. But for all my anger, I am glad they are covering it and saying it. There is a huge swath of the general public for whom our deeply flawed media is still the only major outlet they have. Notably, Maggie Haberman - who spends a lot of time strenuously defending her access and the NYT on Twitter - has abruptly left it as of the other day.
  6. The Politics Thread

    Meanwhile, I don't even want to get into what Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez - whose win I was pleased about - are doing in Kansas against Sharice Davids (who's endorsed by Emily's List). So I'll let someone else do that.
  7. Doctor Who

    @DRW50 will be disappointed I have not been able to keep up with #DoctorWhoOnTwitch's month long marathon, but I am watching stories online on dailymotion to slowly catch the ones I want but missed. Hope to watch Curse of Fenric, but I don't know which version they'll show. Paul Hanley, who did gorgeous art during Season 3 of Twin Peaks, has been doing illustrations throughout the marathon (much more on his Twitter):
  8. Netflix: One Day at a Time

    Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz discuss ODAAT in an interview with Vulture:
  9. The great Joe Bob Briggs' 24 hour horror marathon temporarily crashed streaming service Shudder and got Hellraiser trending on Twitter. Joe Bob has not missed a beat since TNT's Monstervision. Hopefully this ensures a permanent slot for him on Shudder soon.

      And for soap fans: One of the marathon's highlights, cult classic Sleepaway Camp, features the original(?) Tad Gardner Martin, John Dunn, fresh off AMC and meeting a gruesome fate. Also, Jane Krakowski just pre-SFT was slated to play the teen villain but backed out over content.

      Good for Joe Bob Briggs!!
