It’s going to be interesting to see what happens with Grey’s Anatomy. It would make sense for Disney to try to get it back from Netflix (Disney will still have to outbid Netflix to get Grey’s away or else face anti-trust lawsuits) but Netflix might be willing to pay up to keep its Shonda Rimes and Ryan Murphy shows, Read more

I do have the Coca-Cola/Access Hollywood/Noovie crap but I’ll admit I like how my local Alamo Drafthouse-inspired theatre airs a curated collection of clips selected to go with the movie enough that I try to show up early. For example, before Paddington 2, we saw clips from the Jungle Book, animated Paddinton shorts Read more

I’m also hoping to have some WoC in the cast. I wish Amy Hill weren’t busy with the new Magnum PI, she’s always on my wish list for a comedy.

CoiE started with time getting unstable. In the comics that meant heroes from the 1940s, the 1980s and 2980s encountering each other to fight a dinosaur but in the CWverse it could be Oliver encountering versions of Moira and Tommy from an earlier time.... tho Tommy would have come from a time in the past when that Read more

This makes me glad I didn’t have any siblings, I used to wish for a sibling if only to divide her attention but in truth she would have pitted us against each other. Looking back, I realize how she’d frequently compare me to other kids to make me feel inadequate and that if I had a sibling she would have been Read more

I almost forgot about it but you’re right. Dead of Summer lasted one season. IIRC, it was good enough that I watched it but didn’t feel bad when it got cancelled. Read more

Hearts of Pal? Is Lisa now serving up the former friends who have displeased her, now?

I had a friend who worked in food service risk management, she used to say that food poisoning that would cause a strong reaction so quickly was usually serious enough that you should go to the emergency room or call an ambulance right away. A good number of people tried to claim that they knew it was her company’s Read more

I still think Warner could beat Universal to creating their own Dark Universe by making a serious Dark Shadows movie and playing with those public domain monsters the way Dark Shadows did. The fun of Dark Shadows was how it played with those classic stories, that spirit is probably easier to modernize without being Read more

Yep. Gay men can call each other “Mary” or “girl” as an expression of affection but that article was pretty clearly using it as an insult. Reappropriation doesn’t mean we get to use reclaimed slurs in their old context. Speculating on what he does in bed with his husband is how he would have been discussed by Read more

VH1, I was responding to ‘(VH1) died after StoryTellers’. They dove into the trash after that but they kept going. MTV was already fully into the trash by then.

They took a turn and were big on reality shows where people debased themselves in order to date some celebrity (and maybe hope to get their own spin-off).

I wasn’t too surprised by Rachel, she was the show’s young Republican and was a huge fan of Jack Kemp (even excitedly coming home to tell everyone about one of his policy ideas that prompted Mohammed to declare was ‘the supidest thing he ever heard’ after trying to patiently explain to her why it wouldn’t work) at a Read more

They’ve spent so much time calling us anything-goes hedonists they’re surprised when we don’t accept “But my bliss is traumatizing children and triggering libs, why can’t you support it when I follow my bliss?”

My mom would constantly get sucked into these, she’d jump from one to another. While she liked the idea of it giving her more financial security, I think she did a lot of these because she was lonely. She’d attend every meeting and I think she did a lot of it to have someplace where she could go and see the same Read more

I love listening to him talk, I actually endured Chris Matthews to watch Buttigieg’s MSNBC town hall but then I look at his policy ideas and go ‘Fuck no.’ But I still enjoy his public appearances, he says all the right things and says them beautifully but his ideas on how to put his ideas into place are terrible.

Yes, this isn’t just about a boycott as a political action but an HR issue, any studio that asks a female employee to work on a production in Georgia will be putting them in more risk than if they were working on a production in another state.

This is an actual argument TERFs have been making of late. One of the newer arguments is that trans activists pressure lesbians to transition so they can be in heteronormative couples, which makes no sense if you know a little bit about queer people but I guess it’s meant for straight people who think they are Read more

It is the right place if you know you’re only going to get racists who don’t want to hear facts on your side.
