Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
Netflix is looking hard at releasing some of its biggest titles on a weekly basis. I UNDERSTAND WHY, BUT I DON’T HAVE TO LIKE IT.
The Queen once skipped a private performance by Paul McCartney to watch Twin Peaks and I finally have something in common with the Queen of England, in that I would have done the exact same thing. Honestly. You young ones might not know, but back when it was on the air, Twin Peaks was THE SHIT, and you did not miss an episode. (Also, if you missed an episode, the next time you tuned in there might suddenly be a little person speaking backward while dancing around in a weird lounge and you’d have no idea what was going on. Not that watching the missed episode would make it any clearer, either.)
People are mad about the Boris Johnson series, This England, coming out so soon after the Queen’s death, but they need to get over it already.
The final scene of Days of Our Lives on NBC ever being interrupted with dead queen coverage is EXACTLY the reason the show’s fans should be happy it’s moved over to Peacock today. There are no breaking news interruptions on streaming, after all.
Mike White teases what the second season of The White Lotus will be about — and it won’t be hotel guests vs. hotel employees this time.
This list of characters who were only supposed to be on their shows for a few episodes but ended up not just staying, but becoming iconic is great. Can you even imagine Buffy without Spike? Breaking Bad without Jesse? True Blood without Lafayette? Freaking Happy Days without the Fonz?
Let Ellen Pompeo do other things, guys! She’s been on that show for fifty years already!
This is a lovely exploration of the “Gregory” scene in The Sandman which hit REALLY HARD despite being only the second episode in the series.
