  1. I just watched the episode about Stacey Devine, the mother of two who was killed by her evil husband in Arkansas. Are there any updates? I read an article saying a trial was to be had last fall, but there's nothing about the outcome.
  2. Like others, I enjoyed this season but thought it was subpar compared to others Given how it unfolded, I don't see why Prax couldn't have featured. Bobbie was on Mars, Chrisjen on Earth, they could have followed Prax on Ganymede and we see the fallout from that perspective. Then all the Ilus stuff with the Rocinante. I just hope Prax is back in S5. From the new characters I only liked Murty, because the actor did a good job even though the character himself was unlikeable. And Marco, who is very easy on the eye. His plan for the belters has me intrigued, he keeps talking
  3. This is so odd. I was looking to see how Lowe got involved with Wild Bill, which is about to air in the UK. And the shows sound similar. I'm now wondering which came first.
  4. Heads up for UKers, they've been showing Smallville from S1 on 5Star, channel 30 on Freeview. You can also watch it on their catchup service my5. It's been fun seeing the show again. Rosenbaum truly was so great as Lex.

    I began watching this show on 5USA (UK) for Lee Tergesen. I saw him in the promos. I'm liking it so far. I love Kick, the actress plays her very well. At first I was annoyed with Bishop, he seemed too pushy and know-it-all, but I'm slowly warming to him. I just hope there is no romance with Kick. The set-up is farfetched, but I'm willing to go with it because the show has been enjoyable.
  6. Like the tv adaption of The Lost Boys, I don't have much hope for this show, but I'll probably give it chance. So much will rest on the casting and depiction of Lestat, which is no easy task. I do like the idea of the show beginning with Lestat's story in Paris.
  7. I binged watch this show last week and absolutely love it. I knew I was all in when Happy found Nick in the ambulance and sang his song. 🎵The happy horse, horse, horse. So full of fun of course, of course! 🎵 lol! I was legit like Nick, whoa, what is this!? Oswalt is perfect as Happy. And I didn't think Meloni would ever again reach the heights of Keller, but Nick Sax is the perfect character for him to let loose.
  8. I wouldn't be surprised. Think of all the shows filmed in Canada, I'm sure a good number of actors/crew were targetted.
  9. Clayne being uninsurable is the key. They can't go on with him if that's the case, which is probably what forced everyone's hand in firing him. The question then is what made him uninsurable. It adds weight to the theory he has a drug problem which escalated. It would certainly explain why he was throwing any kind of punch at a 78 year old fellow actor! The mandated therapy was probably done to try and salvage things with the insurers who threatened to pull out. Studios will put up with just about anything as long they're making money. So it had to have become a practical road block that
  10. A drug problem would explain a lot. The secrecy, the mandated therapy, the difficult behaviour. All while still gaining support from some of the cast/crew. He probably unloaded on someone important at WB.
  11. I guess it wasn't just pr! He must have really messed up for them to fire him. I read there's recordings of his behaviour, so something may leak.
  12. Could this be a pr stunt? I mean this drama has got people talking. I wouldn't be surprised if it's renewed and Crawford is still there.
  13. If that's true, then it's even worse than I thought. I assumed she'd come to her senses and go for a plea deal, but if she's ride or die for Keith then truly, screw her. Even now while facing serious charges, she's getting opportunities and chances to turn it around, if she wants to spit on that, then a-okay. And have people seen the last post on her twitter/instagram? It's a very worrisome video of a boy who is apparently part of this cult. The way he's speaking is not normal for a child of his age, he's clearly been indoctrinated. I've read that the trafficking charges include child vic
  14. Apparently Allison's parents have worked for NXIVM and defended them after being told to get Allison out. This doesn't surprise me one bit. I've been wondering where they are while their daughter's life is taken over and destroyed. Seeing as Allison is now co-conspirator #1, I guess we'll eventually learn what happened.
  15. Yeah, it must be hard for Kristin, I've seen others blame her, which is unfair. Back then it was believed Allison first brought Kristin along to the seminars, now people are saying Kristin brought Allison into it. But I don't think it matters who introduced who, neither should hold any guilt, Raniere and his cohorts are the ones responsible. Kristin and Allison thought NXIVM was a legitimate self-improvement group. Kristin is just lucky she got out, like Grace. And we don't know what is going on with Allison to make her more susceptible; what her life is like, her mental health, where her fami
  16. I take it people know of Allison's involvement in this cult. I've been shocked since the story broke. I mean I knew she and Kristin were involved in this shady group, but had no idea things were so bad. It's crazy. I remember when this first came to light. It was like a Ted Talk, women empowerment etc. then they set up that Girls By Design project and Kristin dated that Mark guy, who was always suspect to me. I'm glad she dumped him and managed to get out. Apparently, there's been attempts to rescue Allison, but she's too far gone. This is so terrible. Also Grace Park had dealings wi
  17. Yeah. I remember being puzzled by this when it was announced. It seemed strange, as did their decision to rest so much on the appeal of Ryan Gosling. Well it seemed that way to me anyway. The lore and story of 2049 was not promoted at all, it was mostly about Ryan being the new lead. I had to watch Blade Runner in class many years ago. Can't say I enjoyed it, but I appreciate its significance to the genre. I think Total Recall would have been a better bet.
  18. I never knew he said this, but it doesn't surprise me one bit. It's what I've suspected. There is a deep disdain for Superman within DC Entertainment, which comes through in the movies, and is partly why the franchise hasn't fared well imo. It's telling that Marvel has made Captain America work, while DC flounders with Superman. Until someone who is truly interested in the boy scout gets ahold of his story, I can't see things getting better.
  19. I watched chapters 1 and 2 back to back, and this is such an awesome franchise. There is so much to love. Firstly, Keanu. Who I've always adored, so it's great to see his continued success. He's convincing as the sorrowful assassin, he's also kickass and so very hot. Then the world building, which is really fascinating. All the coins and rules that they have. I loved that scene with telephone girls, seeing the tech they use and how they processed the hit. The Continental hotel was already a great idea, but that scene expanded the universe even more. I also love the casting. I read the dir
  20. I just learned about Linda returning and can't believe it! I never thought it possible, but finally the studios see the light! Absolutely. It has always been about Sarah and John. Hopefully Arnie's role is limited.
  21. My favs are Bette Davis movies. Hush.. Hush, Sweet Charlotte All About Eve Little Foxes Dead Image I also like a lot of British classics, especially ones feature Alec Guinness. Kind Hearts and Coronets The Ladykillers The Lavender Hill Mob
  22. Does he remind people of Leo? This is the first I'm hearing of such comparisons. I don't see the similarity at all, imo he's more like a less talented Paul Dano.
  23. In the context of the fashion industry, size 16 is on the bigger side. And why does anything need to be expressed? For the same reason you'd say a model might be skinny, or tall, or short. How are you meant to describe the model if curvy is off limits, or are you not meant to to describe her at all? It's worth noting that when Cha Cha called his model fat -- and she was nowhere near that -- there was a talking head montage of the contestants throwing out alternative descriptors, and curvy was one of words used. Kenya even corrected Cha Cha at the dining table, and used curvy. That is the
  24. I don't think she was saying it as an insult. The model is not slim. She is on the bigger side. How is someone meant to express this? Yes curvy is actually related to body proportions, we all know this. But many bigger people have decided to call themselves curvy and pushed it as a more appropriate term. I certainly thought it was. I think Shawn was using it in that context. I think she was actually trying to be respectful.
