    Cats (2019)

    I guess Rebel Wilson is playing Rebel Wilson again. Because that's about her limit as a performer.

    The Lion King (2019)

    I think this is the right release year. There's nothing official, but a bunch of casting news has started dropping. First it was Donald Glover as Simba, and just a few seconds ago, Jon Favreau dropped a comment on Twitter that James Earl Jones will again be Mufasa. Am I incredibly excited about this? Yes I am.

    Is that...GENE? This is like the Disney Afternoon version of Infinity War.
  4. And the town doctor was a woman. It's rather sad to think that was probably novel in the mid-80s. Even though that plot seemed to come out of nowhere, it made so much sense in hindsight. Mary Ann seemed to get her saucy sense of humor from her grandmother. I remember loving that when they met up with Grandma at the Mall of America on their road trip, Grandma really shaded Dawn's father, who was being a total asshole.
  5. With the BSC--in addition to Watson trying to buy Kristy's affections--Stoneybrook seemed to have two sides, the upper-class side and the upper-middle-class side. Given that Stamford seemed like a stand-in for Hartford, with its eleventy-billion insurance companies, the general lack of money problems among the families (exception for the Pikes) seems realistic. And now I can't stop thinking that Watson was neighbors with Richard and Emily Gilmore. As an aside, one of the things I really liked about the setting was that so many of the moms worked. Which also strikes me as realistic for the population Stoneybrook was likely to have. The moms who were divorcees probably had to (and that provides a need for the BSC's services), but Claudia's mom didn't, nor did Kristy's mom after she remarried.

    Cats (2019)

    That is...horrifying.
  7. Regarding the stinger on the end: Oh HELL yes!

    What if Greg House was a medical examiner? If you're not watching a great Australian mystery series, you're missing out. Available on Hulu in the US.
  9. I suppose, but is that a movie anyone thinks about any more? The only reason it's crossed my mind in the last 25 years is because How Did This Get Made covered both Look Who's Talking Too and Look Who's Talking Now.

    Marvel Comics: All-New, All-Different

    I was kind of right, and kind of wrong. During the conclusion to the story, called War of Realms, she ended up with Ultimate Mjolnir, but once the story was over, it transformed itself in a new weapon called Undrjarn, which is capable of manifesting as any weapon she wants. And now she's Valkyrie, and getting her own series. Yay.
  11. As Secret Wars winds to a close, we're beginning to see hints of what's to come. What's up, what are you looking forward to, what are you going to avoid? Can the Marvel Universe handle becoming less meat and potatoes and a little more arty? Definitely on my list: A-Force New Avengers Ultimates Ms Marvel All-New Hawkeye Spider-Gwen Web Warriors Uncanny Inhumans Angela - Queen of Hel Extraordinary X-Men Strong Possibilities: All-New All-Different Avengers Captain Marvel Scarlet Witch Astonishing Ant-Man Spider-Woman All-New X-Men After seeing good reviews, I picked up Dr. Strange #1. It's fabulous.
  12. They're rebooting Look Who's Talking for...reasons. Just, I beg you, leave this one in the past.

    Queer Eye

    Apparently, one of the heroes was Jonathan's high school teacher. Please hand me the Kleenex now.

    Mulan (2020)

    The phoenix isn't Chinese, so I'm not sure about that. There does appear to be some kind of hawk with her in the trailer, which is pretty cool. The Li Shang analog is played by Donnie Yen, who is an extremely good-looking man, but he's also in his 50s, so if there is a romance, it's not with him.

    Mulan (2020)

    I'm in. I don't think they've said one way or another, but given that the original was very poorly received in China for deviating so much from the legends of Hua Mulan, I doubt we'll see them. I'm not even sure we'll get any kind of a romance plot either, and I'm fine with that.

    Babylon 5

    Per Straczynski, yes.
  18. Here we go again. Thankfully, they've decided to pare down the comics with all those pesky minority leads, so we can get back to what comics are really all about.
  19. Is this the voyage of the Kid's Crew?

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    I have my issues with CinemaSins, but I do always get a smile when it's clear that, despite their schtick, they did like the movie.
  22. Hulu Live has it. I don't have cable, and it was how I watched ER reruns before they added the entire series to regular Hulu.

    Charlie's Angels (2019)

    I am hoping against hope that Jaclyn's cameo means that Kelly is one of the Bosleys.
