Rosie is a sterile cat. I found a kitten on the street for her to adopt. This was her reaction pic.twitter.com/CAjGLHihzi— Michael's Cat (@michaelscat2) February 4, 2021

A stunt performer is suing Game of Thrones‘ production company after being injured filming the Battle of Winterfell scenes. Maybe, I don’t know, they should have turned on a light or two?
An ad-supported tier could be available on Netflix as soon as the end of this year. They also plan on cracking down on password sharing at the same time, so BINGE NOW, YOU PARASITES.
As for how that crackdown will work, let’s look to Netflix in Peru, Costa Rica and Chile, where Netflix has tested charging an additional fee to add “sub accounts” for up to two people outside the home. “The pricing is different per country — about $2.13 per month in Peru, $2.99 in Costa Rica, and $2.92 in Chile, based on current exchange rates.”
Netflix has announced the dates for all of their Netflix is a Joke specials, but don’t look for the recent Dave Chappelle Hollywood Bowl show.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is already ineligible to be nominated for Emmys this year unless Disney decides to release episodes early. That, of course, is highly unlikely.
The Directors Guild of America president has condemned the leaked Supreme Court decision revoking Roe v. Wade. She didn’t say anything about pulling productions from states that restrict women’s rights, though. Stay tuned, I guess.
Why am I, w/@CNN PJ @RonnieMcCrayJr, on this balcony? This is @dougmastriano's rally in Uniontown, PA. The campaign said we could attend, then said no press allowed. So… I rented this room w/a balcony just so we could cover a leading contender for #PAGov w/the primary 1 wk away pic.twitter.com/pDi96GTvh8— Kyung Lah (@KyungLahCNN) May 9, 2022
Reminder: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns tonight. Here are some off-screen dramas you might want to read up on before the premiere.
Congratulations, Andy Cohen!
Fred Savage was fired from The Wonder Years as executive producer and director, for inappropriate behavior. It should be noted that this is the THIRD show on which he has been accused of behaving inappropriately.
Director Cory Fukunaga is being accused of harassing and grooming young actresses. After two sisters that he propositioned — together — turned him down, “he allegedly responded by asking if they knew ‘how bad this would look’ if they went public with their accusations.” Uh-oh, Cory.
Frank Langella wrote a lengthy response to being fired by Netflix for inappropriate behavior on the set of Fall of the House of Usher. Basically, he’s been “canceled,” it’s “not fair,” and “not American.” Langella does admit that he touched an actress on the leg which was not part of the blocked scene, that he called people “baby” and “honey,” that he told off-color jokes, and that he was huggy. He bemoans this “new order” and calls his firing “the real definition of unacceptable behavior.”
You know, every once in a while I feel a little pity for old-timers like Langella who don’t seem to be able to wrap their heads around the fact that their female co-workers will no longer tolerate being groped or condescended to. The man has been in the business for nearly 60 years, and it probably is difficult to understand that what might feel like “friendly” behaviors are now unacceptable in the workplace. He’s not sexually assaulting anyone, after all! But I would counter by asking if he would have done any of these things (with maybe the exception of the off-color jokes) to any of his male co-stars, and if not, why not?
I had saved some stories about Matt Gaetz and Erick Erickson trolling women about the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade, calling women “hysterical” and “cat ladies” and suggesting the repeal of the 19th amendment, but instead of giving them this space, I suggest you click through and read this thread instead:
Justice Alito's invocation of Sir Matthew Hale in his leaked majority opinion is so, so much more fucked up than people realize. I'm a professor with a PhD, and my area of expertise happens to be women and gender in the early modern era (1500-1700).
