Let’s discuss that wild ‘Gen V’ season finale, please and thank you

Have I shown you my favorite possum of all time?

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Last week, the AMPTP claimed they were making their “last, best and final offer” to SAG-AFTRA to end the 117-day-long strike, and the actors’ union took the weekend to consider it. And it sounds like the studios and the actors are pretty close … except for one pretty big sticking point: “The language currently in the AMPTP’s offer would see the studios and streamers secure the right to use scans of deceased performers without the consent of their estate or SAG-AFTRA.” THEY WANT TO OWN YOUR FACE AFTER YOU ARE DEAD WITHOUT YOUR ESTATE’S CONSENT. I mean, look, with any union dispute, for anyone outside the industry, it can be hard to follow the specific negotiating points. But I think we can all agree HOLLYWOOD SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO OWN YOUR FACE AFTER YOU ARE DEAD. Insane.

Lisa Vanderpump thinks that Bethenny Frankel, Lisa Rinna, and Rachel Leviss are just being big babies.

So that Gen V season one finale! First of all, kudos on setting up both the new season of The Boys and a second season of Gen V. Sticking that kind of landing that gives runway for two separate shows is no easy feat.

But also THAT TWIST! I’m going to try to avoid as many spoilers as possible (though they will be all over the links I’m going to provide below), but … the entire season, not unlike The Boys in general, has been this very nuanced conversation about “good” and “evil” in a way that the traditional superhero franchises are just incapable of having, only to end the season by saying, “Yeah, none of your intentions and actions actually matter — what matters is who tells your story. They’ll be the ones who decide if you’re a ‘hero’ or not.” Genius. And important as we keep having to remind people that POLITICS MATTER AND WE HAVE A BINARY SYSTEM IN WHICH ONLY ONE PARTY ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT DEMOCRACY WHILE THE OTHER IS JUST GOING FULL FASCIST.

Sorry for screaming. Hey, did you vote today?

As for those links I promised you:

Is anyone out there arguing that Game of Thrones didn’t ruin Tyrion in the final seasons?

HOLD UP: There are rumors that House of the Dragon is going to cut the character of Nettles and if this is true, I’m going to riot. NOT OK, GUYS.

That creep Doc Antle from Tiger King has pled guilty to wildlife trafficking and money laundering.

Well, this is hardly surprising. russe

#MeToo

Russell Brand and Warner Bros. are being sued by a woman who claims he sexually assaulted her on the set of the remake of Arthur. According to the woman, Brand exposed himself to her and then later assaulted her in a bathroom while a crew member stood guard outside the door. Gross.

This is wild: Abigail Breslin reportedly didn’t want to be left alone on set with her Classified co-star Aaron Eckhart because of his alleged aggressive and unprofessional behavior, and she is the one being sued by the studio for causing filming delays. UM, GUYS.

Steven Tyler is being sued by a woman who says he sexually assaulted her when she was 17 years old in 1975.

Laura Bileskalne, who was fired from Below Deck Down Under for being inappropriate with another crew member, has thought about it and is pretty sure she did nothing wrong.

Roman Polanski is out here denying that he sexually assaulted a different underage girl back in 1973.

Emily Hampshire is sorry for dressing up as Johnny Depp for Halloween.

A reminder that Charlize Theron is a Goddmaned badass.
