  1. Booksmart is my favorite movie of the year so far, and Billie Lourd steals it. As funny as her mother and grandmother.

  2. This is a very candid conversation. I've heard differing things about whether or not Pompeo is part of the drama at Grey's, but I do admire her bluntness. https://variety.com/2019/tv/features/ellen-pompeo-taraji-p-henson-greys-anatomy-empire-1203232936/

      I take it she's not a fan of Patrick Dempsey. 

  3. Folks (not me) are getting security warnings for SON again.

  4. Seems like ODAAT may go to Pop, of all places.

  5. Man, I forgot how dreamy the old Robin of Sherwood series was when I was little. Spawned my mother's fascination with the music of Clannad.

  6. I already enjoyed the new She-Ra, but adding Geena Davis makes it about 100% better.

  7. Constance Wu is melting down on twitter because her show got renewed. Amazing.

      She knew what she said. She knew how it was interpreted. This is called damage control. 

  8. I see Katy Perry is back at it

    1. Khan


      A Hamburger.  I [!@#$%^&*] CAN'T with that woman.

  9. Prince William is trending and unsurprisingly, here's why. Allegedly the source of the recent William/Harry feud, but how typical for the UK press to stay schtum while continuing to pour it on at Meghan Markle. Too late now. https://www.thedailybeast.com/prince-williams-lawyer-tries-to-suppress-rumors-of-affair?ref=scroll

      Ever since I saw the video from a few years ago where he was dancing at a ski lodge (leaving Kate behind), I had wondered. The marriage seems cold to me and they both seem like very cold people. Kate never really lived up to the unrealistic expectations the media put onto her, so Meghan is torn down to try to prop them up.

      This is why I roll my eyes when people act like MM's family is trashy and Harry's isn't. Please. He simply comes from moneyed trash. They are no better and if anything worse.


      It never bothered me that Kate seems cold though. She's much more suited to this family than Diana ever was.  Kate absolutely knew what she was getting into.  I bet you she turns up pregnant in the next year to solidify their relationship with the public.  Gah. I can't believe I'm even thinking about these people. They are as inescapable as the Kardashians these days.

      Well, the Royals are all a bunch of white inbred trash. This is nothing new. Philip was already banging society gals while Elizabeth was pregnant with their first kid

  10. America: Stop taking your little kids to horror movies while they're in theaters.

      I pray that one day we find a cure (if not a vaccine) for that [!@#$%^&*] awful disease.

    3. Juliajms


      Oh no. This is horrible news.

    4. Faulkner


      I couldn’t read that. It hits too close to home.

  11. I've probably talked about it before, but I just love The OA. There is nothing like it. Alice Krige and the late Scott Wilson give especially heart-rending performances in S1 but the main cast is also phenomenal, especially Phyllis Smith and Patrick Gibson.

      I agree Vee. Have you seen S2? I think it's even better than S1. It's such a mind [!@#$%^&*].

    2. Vee


      I am starting it shortly after rewatching S1. It looks even more insane than the first. I know they have an ambitious 5 year plan but it was frankly a miracle the show got renewed the first time. So I'm hoping it pulls out one more season - in the meantime, Netflix is sure to keep facing blowback and pressure re: their now-public attempts to cap most shows at 2-3 seasons.

  12. Nice to see Justina Machado getting a big network showcase with the Norman Lear special while ODAAT is in limbo.

  13. Debra Wilson from MadTV starring in a Star Wars game with Cameron Monaghan is... not news I expected today

    1. Vee


      She's at the end and is playing a Jedi Knight!  



    2. DRW50


      Great to see her still working. She never did get her chance. 

  14. Is it me or does literally no part of the interface work now?

  15. Thank God Wendy Williams filed for divorce before ending up in the ground.

    1. DaytimeFan


      Absolutely. I wonder if part of her time off was, among other things, getting a plan together for herself to get out. Much of what Wendy did the last few months was untangle herself from her husband's control little by little, until she had the strength to hire security guards, have them storm her studio, and have a process server serve her divorce suit in front of all their employees. 

  16. Deep Space Nine, finally in HD! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxHtZqzie1k

  17. Meagan Good was a surprise in Shazam.

  18. Jamie Lee Curtis is apparently down for anything, including roasting YouTube gamers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9KZFuXhfxw&feature=youtu.be

    1. DRW50


      At first I was worried this was some Gamergate extension...

  19. Tuesday in 2019, everyone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLD0PO-F6QwRNqGMPEvFTHyz243Ds1A_5P&v=TMOXxX5_wAA

  20. Alien: The High School Play makes me so happy. https://twitter.com/search?q=alien%20play&src=tyah

    1. DramatistDreamer


      I just read about this.  Everyone involved was so innovative and I'm glad that the Alien franchise complemented the play, instead of trying to pull a Cease & Desist, the way that Aaron Sorkin and the Harper Lee Estate has been doing with productions of To Kill A Mockingbird.

  21. Good for Queen Sugar (which I need to catch up on): https://twitter.com/QueenSugarOWN/status/1108139132914589696

  22. 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

      When you ask a comedienne/actress to direct the flow of conversation and she comes from the world of One Woman Shows, she might just take that job of being the authority on the stage seriously--funny how that works.

      Yeah, part of me feels a bit for how Walters obviously felt as though she had nothing else to cling to but then the other part remembers how she often railroaded and belittled others in interviews, seemingly just to create 'good television' and my sympathy fizzles.


      Jenny McCarthy was fortunate, any at all, that she managed to get any opportunities from her stint on MTV because I never even found that show Singled Out (or whatever) remotely entertaining.

    3. Juliajms


      I think JM did a good job of painting herself as the nice girl victim.  I actually fell for that for half a second, not that I have even a pinch of respect for her due to the vaccine issue.  Look how she paints herself as sympathetic to Walters, while making Walters look pathetic and incompetent, which she most likely was, but still. The repeated use of the word "shuffling" for example. I imaging to someone like BW there is nothing worse than being made to sound incompetent at your job.  She's never been warm and fuzzy that is for sure.  I've always instinctively avoided watching her because I found her off putting. Still, I respect that she broke barriers for women and being soft probably wouldn't have achieved that.


      I know next to nothing about WG either, but I'm going to go on a limb and guess that her career path wasn't an easy one.  I wouldn't have befriended JM in her place. I'm willing to give people a lot of slack in life, but using fame to damage public health is not something I have a lot of patience with.  Notice she is still doubling down with her BS on autism. She won't simply admit that what she says has no basis in fact. She's one of those "you don't know my truth" idiots.


      Apparently, BW is pretty far gone these days, so hopefully she won't even hear about this.  As for WB, I'm guessing she doesn't give a damn what JM thinks.

      IKR? ;)


      If you're an African-American and you're in the position that Whoopi is on the show, you have to be a bit of a bitch in the name of self-preservation; because you know that those above (and even below) you on the proverbial food chain will never have your back.  Could Whoopi have gracefully stepped aside and allowed Babs to "run the table" for her last shows?  Perhaps.  However, to use an old expression, if you give 'em an inch, they'll take the whole damn yard (and then some).


      Add to that Whoopi's general disgust over how the network values her (or de-values her, as it were) and I can understand why she felt she needed to hold ABC/Disney to her contract.  (I mean, she's an Oscar winner, for Christ's sake, and you won't even ENTERTAIN the notion of her doing a live performance of one of her biggest-ever roles on your network?  If I had been in charge, I would have BEGGED Whoopi not only to do "Sister Act: the Musical," but also "Ghost" and even "The Color Purple"!)


      "Notice she is still doubling down with her BS on autism. She won't simply admit that what she says has no basis in fact. She's one of those "you don't know my truth" idiots."


      It simply never occurs to people like Jenny McCarthy that one thing (vaccinations) doesn't always lead to another (autism).  If it did, then there would be a whole lot more autistic people in the world, for example.
