  1. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    It was obvious Gordon Thomson was gay as hell on SuBe.
  2. The loudest element of the 'general audience' on social media is angry old Trekkies who think Seth MacFarlane's The Orville - which is basically a TNG cosplay spoof which looks like it was made in 1991 for about ten grand - is 'the true new Star Trek' without all that messy social justice. That's not general audience, it's spamming. You scratch the surface beyond their spamming of the most popular results on Twitter, or check other Trek boards which aren't reddit or PTV and you find a pretty engaged audience, especially at the long-running TrekBBS. But either way, Trekkies always hate any new Star Trek, they have since 1986. Then they still watch it.
  3. Look again. Critics mostly dug it, while a very vocal minority of Trekkers - who hate every new Trek series every time - spammed their displeasure. But outside of a few enclaves like reddit most of the fans are giving it a shot.
  4. Wow: The zero-budget "avant-garde black soap opera' Bill Gunn and Ishmael Reed made for public television is somehow getting a restoration:

      Cool! I cannot wait to see the episodes come out and how it all pans out.

      They were very very very cheaply made - I can't imagine how it'll look.

      That's terrific. I hope we get to see it.

  5. Undoing the daytime soap stigma

    Anyone in this thread smoke weed
  6. Poor Sonequa Martin-Green cries in every single interview she gives about working on Star Trek. I guess I'll give CBS All Access the 1-week trial today.

  7. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Christine Toy Johnson - who played JFP addition Lisa West, a short-lived love interest for Hank Gannon on OLTL - had a heartbreaking turn as Richard Thomas' spouse on The Americans this season. Like many NY-based dramas the show regularly employs soap talent, and OLTL talent in particular.
  8. The Politics Thread

    Politico says WH staff are 'looking for the exits':
  9. The Politics Thread

    Yep. That's that (for now). I think it will keep on failing, but it is interesting watching - they blindly went ahead with this suicide bomb knowing it was a disaster simply because of intense pressure from their mega-donors. Now that that bluff from the donors has been inadvertently called by this failure it'll be interesting to see how the bought and paid for GOPers react.
  10. People don't care about when you link shít, dude.
