These two new network shows won’t be seeing a second season.

They’re all good dogs, Brent.

NBC is pulling their programming from Hulu and going to keep it exclusively on Peacock, to the surprise of no one. That’s the point of having a Peacock.

Meanwhile, what’s going on over at Paramount+? Why are some of their most valuable properties on other streamers? Why on earth is Yellowstone streaming on Peacock when you have a Paramount+? Do y’all know what you’re doing over there?

The cinematographers of HBO’s Winning Time used “35mm, 16mm, and 8mm color (film stocks) – mixed it with black-and-white digital footage shot in large format (Panavision Millennium XL2), and even incorporated long out dated tube video technology (Ikegami ITC-730A and HL-79 cameras)” to create that vintage look and feel.

Here’s something I didn’t know: The Boys: Diabolical animated series? Episodes were written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg; Andy Samberg; and Aisha Tyler.

Also, yes, that finale for The Boys: Diabolical is canon.

Have you noticed how many series and movies about evil tech entrepreneurs and scam artists are out there right now? This is a long NYT piece about the trend, though I think you can’t separate the proliferation of these series from two things: 1. the sense of many people that the rich keep getting richer while their own situations stagnate and … and I know this makes me sound like an obsessive … 2. the long-simmering anger that Former President Huckster keeps getting away with crimes. I think there is this desire to see conmen and hucksters finllay get their due.

Love is Blind‘s villain, Shake Chatterjee, is using the old, “I got the bad edit” defense. OK.

Congratulations, Michael Cera!

Ukraine Update

It continues to be a fucking bummer.

CNN, ABC, and CBS News are all halting broadcasting from Russia because of their new “fake news” law that could land their journalists and producers in jail for reporting facts. TikTok has also suspended service in the country for the same reason, as have Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

Netflix has suspended service in Russia.

Meanwhile, Facebook, Twitter, and BBC’s website were all banned in Russia after the Parliament approved sanctions against “foreigners who infringe on the rights of Russian citizens.” But if they ban Twitter and Facebook, how are they going to spread their lies and propaganda?

Twitter has banned a bunch of accounts brandishing #IStandWithPutin.

Journalists from Sky News were shot by Russian troops in Ukraine, despite wearing vests clearly identifying them as Press. They managed to all survive, but the attack, all of which was taped, is terrifying.

WNBA’s Brittney Griner (who is from Houston) has been detained in Russia ostensibly for having hashish oil in her luggage. Here’s hoping she makes it home soon.

Mastercard, Visa, and American Express have suspended operations in Russia.

Bethenny Frankel’s organization, BStrong, has raised some $25 million for Ukrainian relief.

Back on Friday, Jeopardy! had an answer about Ukrainian geography, and felt like they had to make it clear it was recorded before the current war.

Ukrainian actor Pasha Lee was killed in shelling yesterday.

One thought on “These two new network shows won’t be seeing a second season.

  1. “But if they ban Twitter and Facebook, how are they going to spread their lies and propaganda?”

    Truth Social might take them.
