Fraiser just Frasier is coming to Paramount+
February 25th, 2021 under Kelsey Grammer, Paramount+. [ Comments: none ]


There have been rumors for almost three years that Kelsey Grammer wanted to bring back his character Fraiser Crane in a sequel series. The rumors are true, and it is coming to Paramount+.

“Having spent over 20 years of my creative life on the Paramount lot, both producing shows and performing in several, I’d like to congratulate Paramount+ on its entry into the streaming world,” said Kelsey Grammer. “I gleefully anticipate sharing the next chapter in the continuing journey of Dr. Frasier Crane.”

As of now, they have not announced if any of the show’s original stars will be part of the reboot. Without them, I have no faith in the show. Grammer might think it was all about him, but it was also about his castmembers’ chemistry with him.

Would you watch Frasier if it is just Frasier?

The Twilight Zone entered the Twilight Zone and it’s not coming back
February 25th, 2021 under Paramount+. [ Comments: none ]


One of the biggest shows on CBS All Access is The Twilight Zone. Therefore, you would think that they would want a new season on the rebranded Paramount+. They do, but there is a slight problem.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Executive Producers Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg have decided that they do not want to do any more episodes. There was no reason was given for the EP’s decision.

I heard rumors that Peele wanted all of the episodes to be aired in black and white like the original run. However, they were streamed in color. It makes you wonder if he wanted things that they were not letting him do?

Console Wars is the story of ’90s video games you never knew you needed to know
September 29th, 2020 under Paramount+. [ Comments: none ]


Back in the ’70s, Atari introduced video games to people’s homes. Then in the ’80s, it was replaced by Intellivision and ColecoVision. However, they were turned into ancient artifacts by Nintendo in the ’90s.

Nintendo thought the market was theirs and only theirs. That was until Sega joined the scene. Once they did, there was a console war between the two. The documentary Console Wars, which is streaming on CBS All Access now, talks all about their battle to become #1.

If you were a kid of the ’90s, then chances are you asked your parents for a Nintendo console. If you already had one, then you wanted the Super Mario games to go with it. There was always a game you needed, and you had to have it. They were making money like it was growing on trees.

Sony in Japan realized this was a growing business, so they decided to get into the game with their own game. They hired Americans to help develop Sega, and come up with a way to compete with Nintendo. They had a lot of different strategies, and one of them was Sonic the Hedgehog.

The fast blue creature was quickly Donkey Konging Mario Bros into second place. How would Nintendo take back their title? How far are they willing to go? They both released Mortal Kombat, and only one of them got in trouble for the violence. What was the difference? Did having 256 colors really make a difference? The mistake Sony made that cost them billions. These are just a few of the things that we find out in CBS All Access’ first full-length documentary.

The doc, who was Official Selection of the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, includes interviews with the people who worked at both companies, file footage, and stories you have to hear to believe. While I am not a video game girl (much to the disappointment of my father), I thouroughly enjoyed it. I learned things about the video game wars that I never knew I wanted to know. The competition between the two is even more intense than Tetris when it speeds up.

Hopefully, the doc’s producers and directors, Jonah Tulis and Blake J. Harris, will give us the sequel about how Xbox and Playstation made both of those games obsolete and fought to become #1 in the new millennium.

The Good Fight cast is our Sunshine today
May 13th, 2020 under Paramount+, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]


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 Paramount+, 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.
