Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

And just like that, Henry Cavill is now starring in and producing a Warhammer 40,000 series at Prime Video. There were a bunch of calls for Cavill to return to The Witcher (something I was TOTALLY FOR) after news broke that the DCU would be making a new Superman movie without him. However, this seems like a suitable project for the world’s most handsome nerd, especially since he’s really into Warhammer. 

“I have loved Warhammer since I was a boy, making this moment truly special for me,” said Cavill. “The opportunity to shepherd this cinematic universe from its inception is quite the honor and the responsibility. I couldn’t be more grateful for all the hard work put in by Vertigo, Amazon Studios and Games Workshop to make this happen. One step closer to making a nigh on lifelong dream come true.”

I’m glad he’ll be a producer on the series, too, hopefully preventing the sort of creative differences that led him to leave The Witcher in the first place.

But Henry, Hank — may I call you Hank? — may I offer you a casting suggestion? The wonderful Rahul Kohli from iZombie, Midnight Mass, and The Haunting of Bly Manor happens to be a HUGE Warhammer miniature fan, and he’s very handsome. Cast him, please and thank you.

Here’s the script to the first episode of Mo, y’all.

House of the Dragon‘s writer Sara Hess discusses bringing brought on the show in part to help make the childbirth scenes real and different and frankly, dangerous.

A reminder ahead of this weekend’s final two games: FIFA is The Worst!

There will still be a 9/10 p.m. hour on NBC — for at least one more year.

Netflix isn’t getting enough of y’all on their ad-supported platform.

Dead to Me‘s third and final season had a big premiere on Netflix. (It’s really great if you’re looking for something to binge over the holiday.)

GLAAD denounced HBO Max’s cancelation of Legendary, and who can blame them? I thought I knew about the ballroom scene, but I learned so much from the competition show. I’m sorry we have lost a spotlight for a deeply underrepresented community, a community from whom our greater pop culture steals so much from, without even knowing it most of the time.

Todd and Julie Christie will get to spend the holidays at home and then it’s OFF TO JAIL.

Jane Fonda is in remission, thank goodness.

I haven’t wanted to report on Elon Musk’s continued destruction of Twitter because I hate giving him the attention, but this asshole, he’s gone too far. I’m going to try to keep this brief, but it’s a little messy, so.

There was a Twitter account called @ElonJet that used publicly available information to track and post the movements of Elon Musk’s private plane. Originally, Musk promised that he would not take down the account so as to prove his “free speech absolutist” bonafides.

But then this week, Musk claimed that on Tuesday, a stalker attacked a car his son was in after finding the location of Musk’s jet via the ElonJet account. As a result, Musk put a new policy in place:

Thus, @ElonJet was suspended — again, even though it was only providing publicly available information. But curiously, the jet wasn’t tracked on @ElonJet on Tuesday, and Elon’s video of the “attack” wasn’t taken anywhere near an airport.

Twitter ended up fact-checking Musk’s own tweet:

And then, a bunch of mainstream reporters who cover the Elon Musk/Twitter beat, they were all suspended last night:

Musk then tried to defend this in a Twitter Space chat with journalists, claiming that these journalists were suspended for doxxing. But they weren’t — they were covering Musk banning @ElonJet. When Musk is challenged on this point in the Space conversation by one of the journalists he suspended, Musk peaced out of the chat, and then SHUT DOWN ALL OF TWITTER SPACE.

So, yeah. After riding into Twitter a month and a half ago as the hero of free speech, Musk is doing exactly what everyone fully expected him to do: shut down the voices of his most prominent critics.

I have resisted leaving Twitter — it’s an important source for a lot of entertainment news and pop culture responses, and I literally need it for this site — but when you start eliminating journalists for just doing their damn job you are on a dangerously authoritarian slope. I have long said that private platforms are not required to host anyone they don’t want to, and I still believe that. Twitter is not the government. And just as they don’t have to allow Nazis to have a platform, they also have no obligation to give mainstream journalists a platform, either. However, I also don’t have to give a platform my eyeballs and time. As soon as Post.news gives me an account or I figure out Mastadon, I might be out. We’ll see.

The Volcano: Rescue from Whakaari: In December 2019, a cruise ship off of New Zealand sent about 50 passengers on an excursion to a live volcano. (I should note here that the excursion was run by  a third-party vendor, and not by the cruise ship itself.) While those 50 people were on the volcano, the volcano erupted, killing 22 of those passengers, the remaining survivors suffered horrible burns and other injuries. And I bet you never heard about any of it because COVID happened and there was no other news. This documentary explores the harrowing event with first-hand footage. Netflix
