The end of an era.

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

The BBC (and cable news here in general) are on death watch. The Queen is dead. God save the Queen.

I’m not much of a royal watcher, but this is undoubtedly a historic moment in time. Queen Elizabeth was 96 years old. She was the longest reigning monarch in the United Kingdom’s history. In her 70 years on the throne, she lived through 15 Prime Ministers, and met 13 of the past 14 Presidents. Winston Churchill was the Prime Minister when she was crowned. The world has changed.

(Real quick, before we get on with the rest of it: go vote on TV Foolishness right here. These are interesting polls today, and you don’t want to miss your opportunity to vote for the Goddamned Orville again, do you?)

Thursday is She-Hulk day, and since I wasn’t around to talk about Megan Thee Stallion making an appearance last week, I’m going to mention it here: Megan Thee Stallion was on She-Hulk as Megan Thee Stallion! She and She-Hulk twerked!

It turns out, Jameela Jamil is the one who connected Megan Thee Stallion to the show, having worked with her on Legendary, which OF COURSE.

Anyway, She-Hulk is a fun feminist show that is tackling male entitlement and all of the ways women are second-guessed, undermined, and belittled. Keep on commenting, haters, you’re just proving the show’s entire point.

Norman Reedus thought he was going to die during the filming of the last episode of The Walking Dead, which would have been really ironic, if you think about it.

This is a very interesting piece about how Mo was shot and edited to capture both the comedy and drama, but also its very distinct sense of place in Houston.

This Variety list of “The Worst Finales of All Time” can just go right on ahead and suck it. I see that the editors note that this list is in “no particular order” but the fact that The Sopranos is at the very top of a list number 1-24 makes me think otherwise. If you didn’t like the finale of The Sopranos, you didn’t understand The Sopranos. I said it and I mean it.

But apparently, the show included on the list that elicited the most outrage was Dinosaurs. The Variety writer who included it on the list received so many comments disagreeing with his assessment that he reached out to the creators of the series to ask about that very dark ending. Kudos to him for not just listening to his readers but trying to learn more.

If you enjoyed — or were baffled but intrigued — by The Rehearsal, this is a solid list of other TV series and movies to watch that are similar.

I don’t know how you make this entire list and leave off Buster’s hand/Loose Seal.

Waaaaaait, Alexandra Daddario was on All My Children for a year? Maybe that’s why she’s always seemed so familiar …

Annyway, here are 10 more famous people you might not have known had a career in soaps.

Warner Bros. Discovery has canceled DC FanDome for 2022, because fuck your fandom.

Advertising on Netflix isn’t going to be cheap. And Netflix is going to go live with ads in November so as to beat Disney+ who is launching ads in December.

If you want to try Disney+ on for size, today’s the day to do it.

Bob Iger states the obvious: traditional TV is in for a “world of hurt.”
