  1. It's out this week, so I'm calling attn to this again. I love Debra Wilson. She's doing a ton of voice work in recent years and needs more regular roles, but at least her performance is motion captured here.

  2. It is still bonkers to me that Lindsay Wagner has a major role in the biggest video game of 2019.

      Please tell me it's "Bionic Woman: The Game"

  4. Billie Lourd is so damn talented. Like her mother and grandmother, she can elevate anything.

      Love her! Definitely one of American Horror Story's greatest assets. 

  5. For soap fans looking for a Halloween treat, Jill Larson (AMC/OLTL) is both heartbreaking and terrifying in The Taking of Deborah Logan on Shudder. Opal forever!

  6. Jennifer Lopez deserves a nom for Hustlers. I said what I said!

      It ain't just me saying it, so you can both ease on down the road!

      Then everyone who is saying it is totally wrong.

      Vee is completely right! 

  7. Ryan Murphy clearly thinks he's clever playing Herb Alpert's "Rise" in a foreboding scene on AHS but the entire show is just a camp nostalgia wikipedia fest. I don't know how people get through year after year of this.

      Watched the first two episodes of AHS 1984. It's has impressive 1980's aesthetics. Covering for a paper thin story.  The amazing Angelica Ross's talents are being wasted in this mess. AHS has always been a mixed bag. Some seasons are great, good, mediocre or bad.

      One of these days, people are gonna catch onto the con Ryan Murphy has been pulling with everyone since "Popular."

  8. The general public's response on social media to the John/Marlena Tide ad just goes to show that soaps still have love from a generational audience. The networks just don't want to service it. #thatsthatonthat

      I agree and it helps that Jarlena are hugely popular with a ginormous fanbase. Tide knew who to market too and it worked

      Part of me wants to applaud P&G for finally seeing what's obvious-- that the synergy between soap and soap operas can always be renewed and will never grow stale as long as innovative and creative ideas come to the fore.  The other part of me is irritated that someone at that wretched corporation didn't have the brains to implement this when P&G still actually produced soaps.  So, in effect, one hand is clapping or maybe a Pelosi-style of applause.

  9. Jharrel Jerome! What a talent, both in WTSU and Moonlight.

      Always nice to see talent rewarded. 

  10. RIP Aron Eisenberg - Ensign Nog of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, one of the best shows of the 1990s and a precursor to many, many serialized sci-fi shows today.

      I watched one of the other clips, where he was talking about his fear of death or injury since losing a leg. Very powerful. It's especially moving when you remember the Ferengi were created as cheap jokes.

      DS9 took what had been a catastrophic failure of a villain race on TNG since early on, the Ferengi, who had been considered a lost cause at that point, and made Nog, Quark and Rom some of the most complex characters on the new show. Strip away some of the chintzy syndication production values and many of their great monologues would be at home on HBO, on Deadwood or The Wire.

       

      If nothing else comes of this sad event I hope it spurs more people to watch DS9. It starts slow and episodic but by the end of Season 2 is starting to hum, and by Season 4 is cooking with gas. It's there for me every time. I'll watch some again today.

  11. Constance Wu is coming for the Faye Dunaway throne and that's equality tbh

      Thanks for telling me about that. A great read. She reminds me of some of my aunts, which...is something.

      I am starting to love her for being such a drama queen. That New Yorker article was great and really won me over. Also, I love Eddie Huang.

      I think she's as much of a nightmare as many journalists say, but good lord is she entertaining.

  12. God bless the free Pluto TV app and its wide range of streaming channels. Especially Doctor Who Classic.

    1. Vee

      And the MST3K channel!

      Pluto TV is underrated and it's a lot better since they've cleaned up that once messy interface.

      Yes I love it. I binge the Unsolved Mysteries channel a lot lol. I'm glad the constant buffering has stopped too

  13. Have we posted "Where's Rodney?" yet? https://twitter.com/Foywonder/status/1164972737363873792

      You may be just about the only human being who watched it when it aired. Congratulations, Khan.

      That theme song is a low-key banger, though! They fit Rodney's one-liners in with the beat well. And I love me some Thea!

  14. The Cramer women will have their revenge on Mar-a-Lago. (Too soon?)

      I thought about Dorian Cramer Lord too when hearing about the hurricane.

  15. Moon Knight and his five personalities are coming for his money.

      I think Sony is operating at an extreme disadvantage and being stupid, as usual. Spidey can be sectioned off if need be from the larger MCU, and Spidey's supporting cast can be kept to his films. But I don't think it will come to that.

    3. DRW50

      Spiderman's main connection to the MCU was Tony Stark, so if they do lose rights to him they have already mined most of that material anyway.

      Can't Disney just buy Sony? They practically own the rest of our souls already.

  16. For some reason I woke up reminded of Katie Holmes' masterful ploy that got full custody of her daughter away from Tom Cruise and the CoS in a lightspeed divorce. Quietly keeping an apt in NYC and taking work that filmed there, and doing it all in record time before he knew what hit him. If you told me Katie fuckin' Holmes would be the woman to outwit Scientology I'd never have believed you. A move worthy of the soaps.

      I heard that GH has its 2-bit cult story but somehow I think that they lack the imagination or creativity to write something akin to the Katie Holmes story. That story is more classic daytime soap (i.e. 30 years ago).  Maybe a good primetime soap on AMC, Netflix, Amazon or Hulu.

  17. Yoof Twitter embracing The Golden Girls on Hulu makes me happy.

      I signed up a month ago to watch Handmaiden's Tale and saw TGG.  I was over the moon.  I just need to remember that damn password!  

  18. Adrian Lyne is making movies again and I'm excited. He's never been given enough credit.

  19. Guess I slept through the spam. Can someone explain the mess this time?

    1. ChitHappens

      ChitHappens

      Someone came on and started posting thread after thread in the Spoilers and Off Topic pages.  Pushed all the real stuff off of the first page of each.  I think the script was in Japanese?  Not sure tho.  

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      Chinese characters, I'm pretty sure, which makes sense considering that China, as well as Russia and the U.S. are countries that have become known for producing hefty amounts of spam and malware.

      Like, I get that the character may be the lead, but after the stories about her being hell on that set as well, there's the fact that I'm sorry, but she is not a bigger name than J. Lo yet.

      It seems like she hides behind "driving representation for Asian Americans in media" to excuse her bad behavior. Despicable.

      She's always been like this.

      Well, you know you're a lunatic when your ex accuses you of adopting a baby and passing it off as your own.  But reading about the weight loss and inability to remember lines or blocking makes me wonder if something else isn't going on beneath the expected tantrums.

    4. Cat

      Cat

      @Khan Agreed, this is long-standing lunacy mixed with pills, booze, and age-related dementia. I believe she has been in an assisted living facility for over a decade -- she's not that old or immobile, but assisted living says to me that she needs to be monitored 24/7 and has done for some time.

       

      Sad to hear about her being like this. I know she's always been cray, but she remains one of my fave actress from the late 60s and 70s.
