  1. Jenny McCarthy is admittedly no brain trust, but this excerpt from a new expose on The View is brutal: https://www.vulture.com/article/ladies-who-punch-the-view-jenny-mccarthy-barbara-walters.html

      I'm not sure how to feel about Barbara Walters.  Part of me feels bad that she was pushed out, but it sounds like it was time. Whoopi doesn't come off as very nice and JM is useless, imo.  She can go straight to hell with her anti vaxxer, anti science nonsense.

  2. Now the PM Inbox doesn't work.

      I'm not seeing this message on my end. What exactly where you doing, if anything different than clicking on the "inbox" link?

      Found the problem. Looking into it.

    1. DramatistDreamer


      but why claim that you're going to undertake a search if you're not actually going to undertake a search?


  3. Nice to see Captain Marvel at the end of the new Avengers trailer.

  4. Of course "Aunt Becky" is actually trending.

      People are certainly having fun with this. It is one of those things that makes a day more fun despite the illegality of the actions.

      I recall 'Aunt Becky' was a guest on her daughter's Youtube channel awhile ago.. and she made mention of the money they spent on her education... I thought it was interesting the way she said it, and I filed that comment/body language away....and now it makes sense.

  5. I was shocked and surprised to discover who Annette Bening is really playing in Captain Marvel (good movie, BTW). Do not spoil in this status.

  6. Vulture just compared Brie Larson in Captain Marvel to Patty Duke. It's like they're actively targeting @DRW50!

    1. DRW50


      That would explain all the John Mulaney articles. Is that reviewer the one whose Wonder Woman review was about how much he wanted to hump Gal Gadot?

    2. Vee


      I hope not!

    3. DRW50


      It is! At least this one is better I guess.

  7. We're swamped with genre anthology shows of late, but Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone looks like a cut above. 



    1. ChitHappens


      Yep, but CBS is playing games.  I don't want to pay for another service to see it!

    2. Vee


      The much better Season 2 of Star Trek Discovery (and the upcoming Picard show) made it worth it to me. Plus CBS keeps offering you 1-2 months free if you try to cancel, so it's a savings.

  8. With GOT returning soon I'm reminded that its last season ran concurrently with Twin Peaks. That was a very, very strange double feature on Sunday nights - a show that had become a massive phenomenon rushing through a ton of plot and spectacle week after week to fulfill intense public demand, alongside a show that was far less action-packed but far more unpredictable and by extension, far less desperate. I still enjoy GOT, many warts and all, and I enjoyed a lot of its last season, but the difference in ethos and requirements was stark.

    1. DRW50


      I also remember a lot of jeering from some GoT fans about how vastly superior that show was, which just reminded me why I quit watching. 

  9. Stephen Dorff used to do nothing but annoy me with OTT performances in the '90s and early '00s but he is giving the surprise performance of his career as The Other Dude in True Detective 3.

    1. Soapsuds


      I cry every time I see this movie.....



  10. Fleetwood Mac drama continues and I'm worried: https://twitter.com/Variety/status/1094003146039255040

    1. DRW50


      That's scary...I hope his vocal chords heal. I'm glad the surgery went alright otherwise.

    2. Khan


      I'm glad, too.  But, man, WHAT NEXT?

  11. Lord those AMC/OLTL 2.0 openings didn't age well. I like the songs though!

    1. NothinButAttitude


      Is it bad that I have both of them on my playlist though? 🤐

    2. beebs


      I hated them when they came out, and I hate them now. Everything else about those shows looked so professional, and then to pair them with those half-assed retail training video openings was just embarrassing.

    3. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      I'm with beebs - I already thought they were awful then. But yes, those songs were nice, and I listen to both often.

  12. Almost four seasons in, I'm still surprised when Rachel Dratch turns up in yet another cameo on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

  13. Carol Danvers, Monica (and Maria) Rambeau, and '90s Elastica! I loved Elastica. 



    1. DRW50


      I got so confused. I thought Elastica was some superhero I hadn't heard of.

  14. A very fun interview with Star Trek's Jonathan Frakes, who is always a hoot. Genie Francis comes up: https://www.vulture.com/2019/01/star-trek-jonathan-frakes-director-interview.html

  15. Star Trek Discovery's second season premiere was a significant improvement on the entire first year but they have got to stop making Sonequa Martin-Green give cheesy philosophical voice-over speeches out of Oprah's Intergalactic Book Club.

  16. Gloria Monty's greatest sin. I'll never get over this. Finola's face says it all.

      She hired him!!

    3. DRW50


      Oh. For some reason I thought he was came on in 1990.

    4. Khan


      I still don't see how that was her greatest sin.  Especially when we all know and remember all those scenes with that annoying Eckert clan.

  17. Maybe let's NOT quote Rorschach from Watchmen on Twitter like a 15 year old boy in 2009 when we're a newly minted member of Congress.

    1. DRW50


      She's getting gushing praise for her "clapbacks," and that's all she cares about anyway.

    2. marceline


      I've done a pretty good job of filtering her out of my news.

  18. I forgot The Conners is back tonight.

  19. Captain Marvel:
