Can we talk about ‘The Last of Us’? Please?


Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Rough day over at NBC News and MSNBC.

The Last of Us was HBO’s second biggest premiere hit in a decade, second only to House of the Dragon. It drew 4.7 million viewers in the first full day it was available. 

Speaking of The Last of Us — LOTS OF SPOILERS, tread carefully:

I’m taking a ride with my best friendI hope he never lets me down againHe knows where he’s taking meTaking me where I want to beI’m taking a ride with my best friend
We’re flying highWe’re watching the world pass us byNever want to come downNever want to put my feet back down on the ground
I’m taking a ride with my best friendI hope he never lets me down againPromises me I’m safe as housesAs long as I remember who’s wearing the trousersI hope he never lets me down again

Netflix’s The Pale Blue Eye is just chock full of Edgar Allen Poe easter eggs.

Justin Roiland, the co-creator of Rick and Morty, has been arrested on felony domestic violence charges. He faces up to seven years in prison if found guilty.

Andrew Callaghan, whose documentary This Place Rules recently debuted on HBO, has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, including everything from pressuring women to have sex with him to violently assaulting others. Callaghan has responded with an apology video in which he admits to not fully appreciating power dynamics and coercion, but denies other allegations against him as “missing important contextual information.”

It looks like Prime Video is literally canceling Jeremy Clarkson — or at least his shows, The Grand Tour and Clarkson’s Farms — following his column in The Sun where he fantasized about making Meghan Markle walk naked through the street while people threw garbage at her. Clarkson has issued another apology, but it’s looking as though Amazon is cutting ties, nevertheless.

As you can see, it’s not a great apology.
