    Sneaky Pete

    Variety is reporting that the show has been "canceled." The article does not mention the source of this news (no "according to" or "confirmed by").

    Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: Don't Call him Sir!

    Amazon Prime Video currently has the 1986 TV movie Prince of Bel Air (IMDb ) currently available free for Prime members, which like the following year's Summer School stars Mark Harmon as the main protagonist with Kirstie Alley as his love interest and features JAG's Patrick Labyorteaux as a supporting character. Harmon stars as the owner of a pool service company who takes a sheltered boarding school student (Labyorteaux) under his wings after being asked by the student's rich father (the late Robert Vaughn) and meets the student's artist cousin (Alley) in the process. It's a light and predictable romantic comedy, but still fun, and worth watching, especially for fans of Harmon. Two technical caveats: As mentioned, it was a TV movie, so the aspect ratio is 4:3. And, at least when I streamed it, the audio was signficantly out-of-sync in spots.

    Stargate Origins

    For those with an Amazon Prime subscription, this is currently free on Prime Video as a single 104 minute video, "Stargate Origins: Catherine." It wasn't great, but it was worth watching. Though, I wasn't a fan of the planet being "Abydos All Along" nor the mind-control instructions at the end (which undercut the plot and motivations of the original film). Spirited Catherine didn't bother me too much. If this had been developed into a full series, I think Catherine would have become the original "Black Widow" of the Gateverse.

    That detail is in the 204 page affadavit (PDF). Huffman's section begins on page 72 while Loughlin's starts on page 88. Since I didn't see it linked above or in the TVLine article, additional DOJ documents for the investigation are available from this link: https://www.justice.gov/usao-ma/investigations-college-admissions-and-testing-bribery-scheme (at the bottom, after the list of persons charged).

    Whiskey Cavalier

    If the "team" was a joint law enforcement task force based in the United States, the CIA officer could theoretically be given a Special Deputy U.S. Marshal badge, which would give them law enforcement officer privileges, but that ain't this show. And, honestly, I'm not sure what this show is yet, since we didn't really see the "team" working as a proper team. But, the show seems to be about an espionage-y team that works outside the United States. That scenario is classic CIA territory and not at all FBI territory, especially as the FBI has no true law enforcement jurisdiction outside the United States. The FBI does work on investigations outside the States and liaison with foreign law enforcement agencies, primarily through legal attachés who are based in embassies (FBI.gov summary). Yet, this show makes it look like the FBI has a mini field office in the Paris embassy. So, the whole FBI vs CIA thing doesn't really work for me. If they wanted to do antagonistic agencies where overlapping jurisdictions actually make sense, a joint team with the CIA and some other foreign intelligence service, say the U.K.'s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS or "MI6" in Hollywood jargon) would work much better, drama-wise. (And, on the business end of things, could perhaps open up the option of a joint production to spread out the financing and risk.) Also, an option for antagonistic inter-federal agencies would have been to make one of the leads work for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), which is under the Department of Defense. Like the CIA, they have a Clandestine section. * * * I guess the show is just going to overlook the fact that the NSA Guy kinda paid off a Russian mercenary to kill someone (the helicopter pilot). They didn't give Ana Ortiz too much to do except confirm the identity of a CIA operative over an apparently unsecured phone line. And, how did she even have access to the file? Speaking of bad OPSEC, the characters' codenames are based on their initials (Foley mentioned this in an interview). Also, discussing your latest op in the public lobby of an Embassy is not a good idea.

  12. IMDb (owned by Amazon) has just launched a free -- with commercials -- film and TV streaming service, called "Freedive" (Mashable article).

    Deadly Class

    Official YouTube link for full episode preview (embedded below, may be removed from YouTube after January 16th): For a pilot, that was one of the better ones I've seen in a while. The episode flowed fairly well without becoming a boring paint-by-numbers guided tour of exposition, unlike the other unusual private school new series this year. (I'm looking at you, Legacies.) And, there was some real tension about what would happen to the lead in regard to how/where he would fit into his new situation. And, I may have let out an audible groan during the "Yesterday" shot, but that was one of the few in media res openings that actually worked. Since, it wasn't an opening action sequence, I wasn't impatiently waiting for the episode to get back to that specific point in time. Plus, the opening classroom scene worked very well establishing the assassin school and the mood of the series. I'm still in wait-and-see mode as to how the main characters break out of their types. And, the same for the apparent love triangle being girly-girl María and emotionless Yakuza biker girl Saya. Random: Hello, Miss Deputy Lupoca! Hi Ryan Robbins! Bye Ryan Robbins! Henry Rollins does intense so well.
  14. Men in Black International - Trailer #1 Men in Black International - International Trailer #1 Some background details, via ScreenRant: Now, this looks good. Love Tessa Thompson's character. And, Chris Hemsworth -- I'm getting a fun young Roger Moore vibe (is a The Saint film reboot in Hemsworth's future?).
