The lunatics writing ‘Gen V’ are completely obsessed with penises

I hear ya, Vince.

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Before I get started, I just want to say that my heart is broken by what is happening in Israel and Gaza. I’m absolutely sick about the loss of life and the terror that the hostages and civilians in Gaza are facing, and for all the innocent lives that will be lost in the coming weeks/days/months. It’s all so terrifying and sickening and will only get much worse before it ever gets any better.

That interview on Fox News with the candidates for the Speaker of the House has been canceled, lol.

The creators of The Boys and Gen V continue to be completely obsessed with penises. (Spoilers for Gen V abound in this link.)

Michele Fazekas (showrunner): When I came onto the show, I realized meeting Eric and Evan [Goldberg], straight dudes love penises. They love talking about them, looking at them.

Eric Kripke (executive producer): So funny. They’re endlessly funny. They’re the weirdest looking things. They’re just hilarious.

So I guess we can expect more dick-related shenanigans?

Also, Gen V is Team Amber Heard. And while Prime Video hasn’t given Gen V a second season order, the showrunner is hopeful it will happen. IT DAMN WELL BETTER.

Also, regarding episode 4’s ending:

Ridley Scott says his four-hour-long director’s cut of Napoleon will be available on Apple TV+. This is an interesting choice and makes sense as a way to make these extra-long versions of movies available. Speaking for myself, ain’t no way I’m sitting through a four-hour-long movie in the theaters, but at home where I can pause it to go to the bathroom or get snacks or come back to it on another day? Sounds great.

Great American Channel will be renamed itself Great American Faith & Living to emphasize its focus on faith-based programming.

Disney+ is reportedly editing classic Disney cartoons for more contemporary sensibilities.

Oh, they’re making a Squid Game slot machine. That doesn’t seem grimly on the nose at all.


BET+ is offering a deal for three months for three dollars if you sign up through Prime Video.

Magnum P.I.‘s showrunner didn’t intend for the 5th season finale to be the series finale, but he does assure fans that it won’t end with a cliffhanger.

R.I.P. Watchers on the Wall.

  1. They could bring back the intermission…..
    I also remember my parents telling me that when they saw The 10 Commandments the theater split it across 2 nights.

  2. My favorite Terence Davies film is Of Time and the City, a 74-minute retrospective look at Liverpool. (streamable on kanopy, available to rent / buy on Amazon)
