  1. He's apparently sober and happy and looked well enough on The Tonight Show, but wow does Macaulay Culkin live one weird-ass life. (And that's even before he turned out to be dating Celia from AMC 2.0 for awhile)

      The original cast tho?

      Remember the Sally Struthers version playing at weird hours usually on a UHF station in the late '80's/early '90s? @Khan

      Thanks. It was interesting to hear her talk about Living Single, and Hillary. I had no idea she was a surrogate.

      Maybe, but those days are back! Also, that's pretty much her current uniform minus the Mar-Vell/Kree green instead of red.

      After Hot Topic Wanda I don't have much faith in MCU to make the effort but hopefully it will work out.

      Well, it's her actual superhero uniform so I dunno what to tell ya. I like it.

  2. I do not care for Grey's Anatomy, but this is one refreshingly raw interview from Ellen Pompeo: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/ellen-pompeo-tvs-20-million-woman-reveals-her-behind-scenes-fight-what-i-deserve-1074978

      I saw that some people were upset with her comments about Faye Dunaway, but I thought she was just being honest about a life in Hollywood for actresses (although Dunaway burned a lot of bridges).

      @DRW50 I don't know why people are upset about the Faye Dunaway comment. Ellen wasn't insulting Dunaway, she was stating the fact that Faye was a major star and has nothing to show for it, financially, when the men she worked for are filthy rich. Pompeo is making her money and good for her. She's one of the few, like Suzanne Somers and Joan Collins before her, whose willing to talk about what money she's making so that other actresses can know what they're actually worth.

      Jamey Giddens, of all people, drew parallels from this interview to the Genie Francis situation - the thing is, he's absolutely right. Not just about how long Pompeo and Francis kept their shows and characters viable and moneymaking for more than a few years, but also in how the networks attempted to use their male leads to leverage them for the salary lowball.

  3. Nafessa Williams - lampooned for her work as Deanna on OLTL - has grown into a solid actress playing a queer superheroine on CW's Black Lightning, and I for one am going to credit her recurring role on Twin Peaks as being responsible for it all

    1. Taoboi

      Taoboi

       I thought that was her. 

       

      Always nice to see OLTL stars doing well.

  4. Sharon Stone is trending at the  Golden Globes and I am happy for that crazy bird. She was fantastic in Steven Soderbergh's interactive series Mosaic, free on your mobile device! #shamelessplug

  5. DeWanda Wise *may* be playing Monica Rambeau in Captain Marvel: http://deadline.com/2018/01/shes-gotta-have-it-dewanda-wise-captain-marvel-brie-larson-1202235891/

      NothinButAttitude

      Good for her! Love DeWanda and glad she's getting a lot of shine lately. I wish her hubby, Alano, who is equally is talented, would get some shine too.

    2. ChitHappens

      ChitHappens

      B, you should have stopped at "lately"!  

    3. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      Why? LOL. You don't think Alano is talented?

  6. There will never be a better NYE movie: 

     

    1. Taoboi

      Taoboi

      WOW. That takes me back.

  7. Apparently Series 10 of Doctor Who is finally coming to Amazon Prime in January. God willing.

  8. Laura Dern's big scene in The Last Jedi really should have featured this new Twin Peaks classic: 

     

     

  9. A little amazed to see 90s queen and 90210 recurring favorite Christine Elise reappear after all these years in her old role in the Child's Play films. I wondered where she went.

    1. Taoboi

      Emily Valentine....good times, good times...

    2. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      Most importantly, though, is she showing Chucky (or Andy) how to exchange an egg? Is her chin still the stuff of dreams?

  10. And in nerd news: I should care more about the monopoly, but right now all I care about is that Disney owns the X-Men and Fantastic Four and they can finally come in out of the cold.

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      The new X-Men movie - has it already been made?

       

      I wish they could put Ioan Guffud in the FF movies again...

    2. Vee

      It has. But I think it's all forfeit now - I like a lot of the current cast but the continuity is a shitshow. I assume they will hard reboot everything but Deadpool, who has a long history of commenting on corporate ownership and breaking the fourth wall/existing outside continuity. (I have my doubts the upcoming New Mutants movie will not be a one-off as well, despite a solid cast - I think the premise is a bit too esoteric and I'm not convinced they're getting the Demon Bear story right)

       

      I've wanted this for the poor Fantastic Four since Iron Man. The First Family is tailor made for the MCU.

  11. Those hicks fuckin' did it!

  12. I'm behind but yikes: The Walking Dead just made a huge change and I think it's a mistake.

  13. Okay, fine: You all (and Justina Machado and that retro remake opening) got me to push One Day at a Time up my Netflix queue. When I was a kid I'd watch it on E! and had a crush on Glenn Scarpelli - sigh.

    1. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      I thought you had watched it already? It's good, old school sitcom fun! Very Lear, but proves that Lear doesn't have to be outdated. Nice, long scenes, no intrusive background music, etc. 

    2. Vee

      Vee

      Just a couple episodes before I got busy. I worked on a Lear documentary a few years ago so it's nice to see him still at it.

  14. I guess I shouldn't have worried about Twin Peaks' reception in 2017: Sight and Sound and Cahiers du Cinema are naming it in the top 'films' of the year and Rolling Stone gives it best show.

  15. We don't deserve Jenifer Lewis.

    1. Vee

      Vee

      Just kept being herself. Also I saw her on The View and it was a hoot.

    2. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      She is the literal best. "I don't want nobody fkin with me in these streets" remains a personal hymn.

      So happy she got a Critic's Choice nomination yesterday.

  16. Your Friday reminder: SON has no moderators. Unless they do. But they'll have to speak on it before I stop.

    1. Vee

      Vee

      I only see one active, but I may have missed 'em. One problem at a time.

      Where are Errol and Toups. They need to take care of that one troll who keeps posting racial comments

      Oh? The lint is still here. Darn.

  17. Prince Harry is off the market and I'm very charmed by him and Meghan Markle. Also, SON has no moderators.

      I haven't been a big Harry fan since he wore that Nazi uniform. Sure, he's rehabbed his image since then, but given that family's history of Nazi sympathizing and antisemitism, I'm skeptical. Still, if he's changed, good luck to them.

  18. Your Sunday reminder after the holiday break: We have no moderators at SON

  19. Took a day off, but Tuesday: Still no moderators. Or are there? Toups or Errol, feel like commenting?

    1. ChitHappens

      ChitHappens

      Because you are doing exactly what you are accusing someone else of doing.  Besides, you are a super smart person and I'd rather see posts from you on the topics at SON than to see you raving daily about a "troll".  It makes you seem a tad off.  

       

      Use your time/energy wisely.  Have fun :)  

    2. Vee

      Vee

      Raving, no. Disciplined, yes. It's what the moderators and anyone responding to the trolls on the board lack - consistency and focus. If you have a better way to deal with this forum's systemic lack of moderation and inability to deal with trolls than to regularly raise awareness I am all ears. Pretending it isn't happening, rolling over and playing dead, and blaming the victim are not rational options. Saying "just ignore him" got old years ago, especially when those of us who blocked him still have to deal with his posts due to spamming.

       

      You tried, but you're wrong.

    3. Taoboi

      Taoboi

      Speaking of lint, you have realized that it (they) appear to have vanished since the blowup.

       

      Perhaps you got your wish after all...and made a LOOOOTTTT of people happy. :)
