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?

CBS All Access takes all the color out of The Twilight Zone
June 4th, 2019 under CBS, CBS All Access. [ Comments: none ]


Almost 60 years ago when The Twilight Zone debuted with Rod Serling, it aired only in black and white. It was not until 1985, the first revival, that the new episodes were done in color. Since then every revival has been done in color including the latest one on CBS All Access.

That was until this week when they decided to release black and white versions of all of this season’s episodes. Would the color-stripped episodes change up the feel of the show? So far I only have watched the last episode in both forms and the answer is hell yes. It gives it the feel that makes the story even creepier. Which helps you travel through to another dimension. “A dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead – your next stop, the Twilight Zone!”

Granted, the last episode had a special guest star that made the effect even more fitting. However, I think the rest of the episodes will all benefit by going back to basics.

If you are like me and are going to rewatch them all in the different format, then keep your eye out for the Blurryman in all of them. Someone said they found him in the other nine. Did you spot him before he was revealed in the season finale?

I really hope that CBS All Access and Jordan Peele decide to do this again for the second season. Whoever suggested that they edit the show both ways deserves a big old raise. It was a very smart choice. One that really pays off for fans of the original.

Rebecca Romijn finds out if brunettes have more fun!
October 8th, 2018 under CBS All Access, Jerry O'Connell/Rebecca Romijn, Star Trek. [ Comments: none ]


As long as we have known Rebecca Romijn, she has been a blonde. But for her role in CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery, she is a brunette. Here is a glimpse of her with the darker locks and she is giving Alexis Carrington a run for her sexy money. So, I am sure Jerry O’Connell is making her wear the wig to bed when the twins are asleep.
