  1. AMC: Fear The Walking Dead

    I'm not watching this mess atm, but the departing showrunner confirms what I'd always suspected: Madison was the intended ultimate villainous character.
  2. The Harvey Weinstein Scandal

    Lena Headey tells her story.
  3. "Roseanne" revival in the works

    Lecy looks great. I'm very happy this is happening - I always wanted the show to get a better ending. I just hope it isn't full latter-day Roseanne at her worst and most uninhibited. I know some of the past creatives are back, and I hope they can mitigate her self-sabotage that wrecked the show's final year or two. When she's stable and working with a good team she can do great work.
  4. The Walking Dead: Discussion Thread

    Danai Gurira appears in the new Black Panther trailer:
  5. Lauren Holly's full account of her encounter with Harvey Weinstein is absolutely heartbreaking. Watch the full clip in the thread.

  6. The Harvey Weinstein Scandal

    AMC's Lauren Holly talks to Canadian TV about her own Weinstein experience.
  7. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    I still take it as a personal offense that I can find no visual record of Frazer Hines losing his shirt on either this or Doctor Who. The true tragedy of the purging of our television history.
  8. The Harvey Weinstein Scandal

    I do think McGowan is unstable and needs to take a break, but I also think she's mostly telling the truth. The stuff that comes off truly unhinged is her ranting about all her projects and scripts in development - that's not happening for her and smacks of delusion mixed with valid rage.
  9. Really hope someone in the States picks up this George Michael documentary playing in the UK.

      It airs on Showtime this Saturday (Oct. 21) at 9 pm EST.

  10. The Harvey Weinstein Scandal

    Lysette Anthony (Hollyoaks, the 1991 Dark Shadows) says Harvey Weinstein raped her for years. The great Sarah Polley talks Weinstein in a NYT op-ed. I remember her all the way back to PBS' Ramona and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen when I was little, then in Go, before she became a great director. Kate Winslet unloads.
  11. Blade Runner 2049 did a classy thing for a down on their luck actor and is a shockingly great movie when it shouldn't be. Go see it.

      Good. I wasn't sure even after I saw the credits. Like others in that scene I was shocked in a good way.

      Gotcha. Thanks. That was a hugely wonderful surprise & such an affecting scene.

       

      Also, the movie showed me that Jared Leto can still be pulled back from the brink and turn in a nice, controlled performance.

       

      I think I need to go see it again.

      @YRBB Same about seeing it again. I still have a few conversations from it dancing in my head right now. One of them was a conversation I just had last week so it resonated beautiful.

  12. To be clear I did watch during the Loving Murders as a kid, but my memories from back then of almost anyone who didn't go on to be on TC are vague at best. So yeah, my knowledge of Ava is mostly from YT. The most I remember from pre-murder Loving is Angie and such - Debbi Morgan hooked me.
  13. AMC: Fear The Walking Dead

    I ain't watching this show again for a long time, lollll. They've killed half the original cast! What a hot mess. I feel bad for the few remaining old regulars.
  14. I'd like to know more about this, as I had no real concept of Ava and Alex back then like I do now, and details are scant in episodes available online. I know she freaked out about the case and took the kids to Florida, but it seemed like they just shuffled their longtime female lead off stage left at the end of the story after those two had been together years. Also, how did Jocelyn first get woven into Loving? I know they allegedly wanted to bring Peluso onto The City had it lasted. (And when did Danny die and Tony arrive? He sure got over Steffi and moved on to Ally fast when Heinle left TC). I do think Gwyneth's arc makes sense with the murders capping it off, but the mishandling of Trisha over years is just bonkers to me. I don't know how anyone thought it was viable to leave her off somewhere amnesiac wandering the earth for years, especially at the very end when they had options. It's up there with how carelessly OLTL handled Marty Saybrooke's final exit, though they did attempt to put a hasty band-aid on it months later with an off-camera mention.
  15. Guiding Light discussion thread

    Loved it. Yeah, that was apparently his name. If you find it again please let us know.
