  1. Snuggle down for a CBeebies Bedtime Story with Tom Hiddleston? Friday 25 June, the BBC series "CBeebies Bedtime Story" adds Tom Hiddleston to the roster of actors and celebrities reading bedtime stories to those of us at home. I mention this in case anyone wants to hear Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.
  2. Fun fact: The little boy's contortions were performed by an actual contortionist, not CGI. They just mapped David's face over hers. Michael Chaves (Director): And that’s all in camera. That’s real and that is the speed. We did not speed it up, at all. Our contortionist is this little girl named Emerald Wulf, who was 12 years old at the time, and she did that all in camera and at that speed. Originally, it was planned to do it really slow, and we shot it and it was definitely cool. But afterwards, I was like, “Emerald, can you do anything else? Do you wanna try something else?” And she was
  3. He did a podcast appearance on The Kingcast (a talk show podcast devoted to horror author Stephen King and his work) talking with him about both the original book and movie, so I wonder if it's a sort of preview of his intentions...
  4. Well, it's a fascinating idea. Almost always, the main problem with a murder house is what remains after a physical cleaning. How does one erase an invisible death stain for those who live there? Can you minimize the house's reputation by making minor changes to the exterior of the house? What if your house becomes a tourist attraction? Fixing all this seems like such an interesting challenge to me.
  5. I really wanted to see this because I love the concept of rehabilitating 'murder houses' and the work that goes into it. There's a man named Randall Bell that has been doing this since the late 80s/early 90s, so if this is something you're interested in, there's a lot of articles about him online.
  6. Kablooie might be, according to this article at ScreenCrush. The drink can was "Josta". It's an ongoing production detail to have discontinued products around.
  7. I think my favorite neo-noir is "Devil in a Blue Dress" because Denzel Washington was perfect as Easy Rawlins, but very close behind is "LA Confidential" because it had so much style. Also, it seems to be really hard for people to adapt James Ellroy's work well, but this did a great job of creating a screen version that was faithful to the feel even though it didn't keep all the subplots. For classic noir, I don't have a fave because there are so many great ones. For now I'll add "Sweet Smell of Success" because the story is so wonderfully messed up and the dialog is highly quotable, and
  8. I used Wikipedia to find the episode date, but just now learned that in the US and Canada, British series 1 and 2 were merged into US Season One to make up for the small number of episodes per series (season), and the same was done for series 3 and 4 to create a longer US Season Two.
  9. I really liked the UK series Timewasters. It's recently been picked up by IMDB TV, but of course there's also a US remake being developed. "Starring Daniel Lawrence Taylor (Cockroaches) as Nick, Kadiff Kirwan (Chewing Gum) as Jason, Adelayo Adedayo (Skins) as Lauren, and Samson Kayo (Truth Seekers) as Horace, the first season sees the band transported back to 1920s high-society London. In the second season, the time-traveling quartet are transported to London in the 1950s. Met with strange stares and genuine curiosity in both eras, the group navigates the clash of cultures and social
  10. They are pictures of the Manson Family (murderers), the Menendez Brothers (murderers), and a reference to the Sackler family of pharmaceutical murderers (largely responsible for the opioid crisis).
  11. This seems like a hard thing to get a series from, since Ginger's change is pretty quick. Maybe a mini series?
  12. The shows I miss are: Profit. Maladjusted man played by Adrian Pasdar rises in corporate ranks through clever but horrible acts. It would have fit in well with that batch of jerk protagonists like The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men, etc. But it was too early and people were shocked and appalled, so it lasted one very short season. Century City. Near-future legal ethics drama featuring Viola Davis, Ioan Gruffudd, Hector Elizondo, and Kristin Lehman.. Technically science fiction, because the issues dealt with all involved things like “man doses other man with some sort of recordin
  13. The one thing that caught my attention was when L&O: UK remade (as S3, Ep 1 'Broken') a US episode (S10, Ep 2 'Killerz') that was drawn from two UK homicide cases. I remember it being a big controversy because James Bulger's mother was all over all the news trying to get the episode removed from re-airings.
  14. Did anyone watch the 10th anniversary show? I thought it was a great look back at the series and, as is custom, I got teary-eyed more than once. [It was an out of character retrospective, so no worries about spoilers.]
  15. And Squidgygate, for the sake of fairness.
