The Good Fight cast is our Sunshine today
May 13th, 2020 under CBS All Access, Uncategorized. [ Comments: 1 ]


The Good Fight cast cannot shoot scenes together because of the Coronavirus pandemic, but they did find something they can film as one. The actors got together with the creators of the CBS All Access show and sang Gene Autry’s You Are My Sunshine on Zoom. Bringing some much-needed sunshine into our lives.

Were they perfect? Nope. Then again, it is hard for most people to measure up to Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald’s voices. However, that doesn’t matter, what matters is the joy they are spreading with this song.

CBS All Access is bringing back our childhood for the children!
January 13th, 2020 under CBS All Access, Sir Patrick Stewart/Sir Ian McKellen. [ Comments: none ]


CBS All Access teamed up with Dreamworks Animation to reboot some of our favorite shows from our childhoods. Beginning on January 17th, they will be streaming all new versions of Mr. Magoo, Lassie, and George of the Jungle. They join the updated versions of Danger Mouse and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

I might be too old to watch all of this, but why should I stop being a kid?

For adulting, I will be watching Star Trek: Picard that was picked up for a second season before season one even debuts on January 23rd. I also can check out season two of The Twilight Zone with special guest stars Morena Baccarin, Colman Domingo, Ethan Embry, Jenna Elfman, Tavi Gevinson, Tony Hale, Abbie Hern, Gillian Jacobs, Sophia Macy, Joel McHale, Chris Meloni, Billy Porter, Jimmi Simpson, and Daniel Sunjata.

Why Women Kill will kill again!
October 16th, 2019 under CBS All Access. [ Comments: none ]


Marc Cherry gave us Desperate Housewives and Devious Housemaids, and yet his newest show might be his best one yet. Why Women Kill takes place in the ’60s, the ’80s and today. The one thing that all three of these wives, from different eras, have in common is their husbands are cheating them. It is a story as old as time.

Each week, we saw how they handled their husband’s infidelity. One befriended her husband’s mistress, one had an affair with a barely 18-year-old neighbor boy and one invited her lover with them. What could wrong? A lot. Tomorrow on the season finale, we find out how it all ends for these housewives.

While their tale ends tomorrow, CBS All Access announced today that the show will be back for a second season with new women who want to kill. Unless Cherry does a Ryan Murphy and brings back Ginnifer Goodwin, Lucy Liu and Kirby Howell-Baptiste as different characters. Which I am perfectly fine with.

This show had me hooked from the very first episode and gets better with each one. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, they trick you. Last week’s episode definitely prepared us for a finale that will leave us as satisfied as all of the mistresses.

If you have not seen this soapy show, then you must watch, darling. It is the perfect campiness we all need in our lives.

Why Women Kill looks like it is going to be a killer show!
July 24th, 2019 under CBS, CBS All Access, Desperate Housewives. [ Comments: none ]


Over the last century, women have slowly learned how to use their voices to speak up. How they handled infidelity in the ’60s is different than how they treated it the ’80s and is much different than we do it today.

Starting August 15th on CBS All Access, Why Women Kill shows how three women (Lucy Liu, Ginnifer Goodwin and Kirby Howell-Baptiste), from each of those time periods, handle their husbands cheating on them. In a way that only Desperate Housewives’ creator Marc Cherry can.

Mark your calendars because you are not going to want to miss this tantalizing show.

Watch Mary Chieffo transform into a Klingon
June 21st, 2019 under CBS All Access, Star Trek. [ Comments: none ]


Mary Chieffo plays Chancellor L’Rell, Mother of Klingons on Star Trek Discovery and that means she has to wear a lot of makeup and prosthetics in order to play the part.

CBS TV Studios shared a video of her getting into character. Unlike other actors, it is not as easy as just putting on an accent. It is hours of sitting in a makeup chair as they make her up piece by piece. You have to admire how cool she is throughout the long process. I cannot even sit still to write this up and she is like whatevs.

Which is why CBS All Access is asking for her and the makeup department to be considered for an Emmy. The voters should consider that there is much more to acting than acting out the lines. I doubt someone like Constance Wu would be willing to go through all of that for a role. Now I am not saying that acting out lines is easy and should be nullified, but some actors have to do a lot more before they go in front of the camera and should be recognized for that too. Mandy Moore does more to play Rebecca Pearson than some of the actresses on Big Little Lies.

I also think it is really interesting to watch these transformation videos. I enjoy watching a human turn into something else. How would you say that in Klingon?
