  1. FWIW: I'll spam this status bar everyday to get Errol or Toups to address the troll issue and I urge everyone else to start threads or do the same. I don't particularly care if they'd rather ban me than a troll.

      Apparently, this board is now being run by the Trump administration.  Unbelievable.

      So they want Trolls to run rampant then go for it Vee, spam them all you want ;)

      Trolling is the wave of the future!

  2. Another unforeseen benefit of Stranger Things 2: Introducing me to Olivia Newton-John hits I wasn't familiar with.

      Love this song, I have that CD 

  3. Dear Netflix: Please put Sheryl Lee in Stranger Things 3. Signed, your fawning acolyte Vee

      Sheryl Lee Ralph? I love her!

      Oh, LOL. I haven't seen Stranger Things 2 yet, so just a guess.

      Uh.... everyone already knew that.

      Which was what I said in a roundabout way. Uh...hello.

       

      Still love ya though. ;)

      This is disappointing for sure.  I don't believe he doesn't remember either. I guess he had the grace not to completely deny it, which would have been easy to do after 30 years.  So sad to think of all these victims. I know it's nothing new, but just awful how many people have been harmed by sexual predators.

  4. It's probably the tackiest thing ever to say but in the wake of this year defined by corruption, bigotry, white supremacy and now sexual abuse scandals, I can't think of a better time for Agnes Nixon's two key soaps (AMC and OLTL) to be back on the air telling the kind of relevant social and political stories they always told best.

      Not written by the current hacks no current soap writers can pull off this anymore

  5. Stranger Things 2 uses Susan Lucci and Erica Kane as a character beat. I love it.

    1. Khan

      Khan

      How?  I probably shouldn't ask, since 1) I don't watch ST and 2) I don't want to spoil anything for those who do.  Nevertheless, as an Erica Kane/Susan Lucci fan, I have to know.  Could you maybe PM me?

       

      (By the way, didn't I ask whether that old AMC clip would figure into the show? ;) )

    2. Khan

      Khan

      Oops.  I wrote that last reply w/o checking the AMC thread first.  Nevermind. :)

  6. Terri Conn (ATWT, OLTL) is among the women who have come forward to accuse writer-director James Toback of sexual harassment.

      Having her leg humped as she watched him release himself?  That's so damn despicable!  

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      The author of the L.A. Times article says that an additional 193 women have contacted him about Toback since the article was published!!:o

  7. TFW you're working a rush job on a Tika Sumpter movie. Good for her.

  8. Lauren Holly's full account of her encounter with Harvey Weinstein is absolutely heartbreaking. Watch the full clip in the thread.

  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. 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.

    1. Taoboi

      Taoboi

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

    2. YRBB

      YRBB

      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.

    3. Taoboi

      Taoboi

      @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.

  11. Kelela's first major label album "Take Me Apart" is futurism meets Janet/Velvet Rope-era Janet Jackson. Listen to it on Spotify, it's great.

  12. In the wake of the Weinstein scandal, Terry Crews has a story too: http://www.vulture.com/2017/10/after-harvey-weinstein-terry-crews-shares-his-own-story.html

      As long as there's a Hollywood, there will be men like Weinstein, slithering around, using their power to defile and demean women.  But I am glad to see women and even men speaking up about this issue, if only so those who are influential within the film and TV industries will think twice before putting anyone through this personal and costly humiliation.

    2. Vee

      Not just women. Wait for the next one.

      Terrible that he believed (knew) he would go to jail if he fought back.

  13. Erika Alexander has a pretty serious side career writing increasingly major comic books now and I'm quite happy for her.

      That's great! She's was awesome as Max on Living Singles.

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      A piece of trivia-- Marta Kaufman who co-created Friends, said that Living Single was the inspiration for Friends.

      Good for her. I so miss her on TV.

  14. If the rumors are true about who pops up in Blade Runner 2049 I will eat my hat.

  15. Wow: The zero-budget "avant-garde black soap opera' Bill Gunn and Ishmael Reed made for public television is somehow getting a restoration: 

     

    1. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

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

    2. Vee

      Vee

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

    3. DRW50

      DRW50

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

  16. 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.

  17. GL's Don Stewart stars with a talking chimp named Trudi in the ridiculous "Carnival Magic" - the new Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Netflix just keeps on giving.

  18. Nichelle Nichols meets new Star Trek lead Sonequa Martin-Green at the Star Trek: Discovery premiere: https://twitter.com/NichelleIsUhura/status/910305125805080576

      That's so beautiful.

      It really is! I have been upset with how the show has been handled in some areas, but the early word is good and I love Star Trek so we'll see. I just wish it wasn't stuck on CBS' white elephant platform. The pilot airs on TV on Sunday.

  19. WHY is Jessica Tuck joining GH?

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      I'd say money talks but they can't be paying much. I guess it's still a gig. I'm just glad they aren't going to have her play Megan...

  20. Not here for this earthquake shít! Moving West was a mistake!

  21. The young girl in It is going to be a huge star if she plays her cards right.

      Agreed, wholeheartedly.

  22. Series 2 of Sky's Fortitude is a lot more all over the place plot-wise than Series 1, but it still retains the power to absolutely shock when it takes a major character. Oof.

  23. Nice to see Ebony freelancers standing up. I can never know the magnitude of that particular struggle, but as a freelancer I know what it's like to have to hunt down your pay for months from a client: http://www.theroot.com/ebonyowes-freelancers-sue-historic-black-magazine-for-1802248405

      I know what this is like too. People would never do this to contractors on Wall Street, so why has this become an acceptable practice toward writers and artisans?
