Password sharing was fun while it lasted …



We just bought our second livestock guardian puppy and he met his herd for the first time last night. #cutedog #cute #greatpyrenees #dogsoftiktok #dog #puppy #puppylove #livestockguardiandogs #farmlife

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Password sharing is officially over at Netflix. How it works is Netflix will only allow your password to be used in your home location. And how Netflix will determine where the home location is will be based on where you log in — so if you’re sharing your password with others, you might want to login before they do. (How traveling with your account will work — or if you have two homes — is anyone’s guess. They haven’t clarified that issue yet.) You can add one another person to a standard account for $7.99 a month; two people if you have a premium account. It should be noted that a standard account with ads costs $6.99, so it might be cheaper to kick your college kid off and pay for their own standard account and make them watch ads.

The A.V. Club seems to think Netflix chose yesterday to revoke password sharing because we were all too busy roasting the debut of Max, and, you know, there’s something to it.

Peacock trolling Max is pretty good:


An argument against worrying about “sticking the landing” in the series finale.

I mean, if you really believed that Pedro Pascal was actually under that mask … I have a 140-year-old bridge to sell you.

The Hollywood Reporter‘s round table discussion featuring Evan Peters, Michael Imperioli, Jeff Bridges, Kieran Culkin, Damson Idris, and Pedro Pascal is going to have some people sweating thanks to this “daddy” exchange between Pascal and Cullkin:

At the same time, you seem to be having fun with the fandom. I don’t have a good handle on what the whole “daddy” narrative is all about …

CULKIN (To Idris) Husband, (to Pascal) daddy.

PASCAL I think one is (to Idris) young, (to himself) old.

What I do know is if you google your name and “daddy,” 1.5 million pages turn up. So, my question is …

CULKIN Will you be my daddy? (Laughter.)

Am I right that you’re having fun with it?

PASCAL Yeah, I am having fun with it. [The daddy thing] seems a little role-related. There was a period where the Mandalorian is very daddy to baby Grogu, and Joel is very daddy to Ellie. These are daddy parts. That’s what it is.

BRIDGES Are you a daddy?

PASCAL I’m not a daddy and (looks directly to camera) I’m not going to be a daddy.

CULKIN I’m a daddy. Nobody likes my daddy parts.

PASCAL Did you just say, “Nobody likes my daddy parts”?

CULKIN They like your daddy parts. (Laughter.)

(But also, who doesn’t get the “daddy” thing? Lacey Rose, girl, what’s wrong with you? Are you a part of society?)

La Brea will start filming again soon. Oh good.

I have no idea how they solved this puzzle, but good for them.

Just Sam, American Idol‘s season 18 winner, is back to busking in the subways. It’s a tough business.

Apparently, there’s some behind-the-scenes tumult over at Jennifer Hudson’s talk show, too.

It came out that Fox News treats its employees like human beings and allowed them to be called by their preferred names and pronouns, dress in alignment with their preferred gender, and use the bathroom that corresponds with their preferred gender, and now the hard RIght is OUTRAGED, and want to give the network “the full Bud Light treatment.” Let the girlies fight.

Shame on Target. I understand that their employees are being threatened by these lunatics, but maybe hire more security rather than capitulate to bigotry and hate.

And while we’re talking about bigotry and hate, Ron DeSantis is set to announce his candidacy on Twitter because of course he is.

Sending my thoughts to the greatest songwriter of the 20th century. Yeah — I said it. And I mean it.

Writers’ Strike Update:

So, over on HBO Max, movie credits pages listed specific roles for writers and directors on the productions. But when things moved over to Max yesterday, the credits looked … different … lumping writers and directors under a vague “creators” category, inspiring A LOT OF IRE:

It’s especially poor timing thanks to the current writers’ strike and the looming directors’ strike. Max is trying to blame it on technical issues, which seems like bullshit — you have to actively create a “Creators” tag. This was a choice. In any event, Max promises they are going to fix it. But yeah, you can see why the writers and other creatives are feeling a little disrespected these days.

Meanwhile, the actors might be about to join the strike.

And other actors already have the writers’ backs:

Meanwhile, you have to love David Simon:
