Did the Menéndez brothers’ dad rape a member of Menudo?
April 18th, 2023 under Peacock. [ Comments: 2 ]

It has been 3years since music executive José Menéndez and his wife, Kitty, were shot and killed. Their sons, Lyle and Erik, were convicted of their murder in 1996 after a very public trial.

During their trial, the Menéndez brothers alleged that their father physically and sexually abused them. But, there was no evidence found to support that claim.

However, their case might be reopened because Menudo’s Roy Rosselló is telling Peacock that he was raped by José Menéndez.

During the three-part series, Rosselló will share his story in Menendez + Menudo: Boys Betrayed. The streamer says he “could be the key to changing how the public views the brothers’ case while simultaneously crusading for his own justice.”

Rosselló joined the Puerto Rican boy band in 1983 when he was just 13 years old and was a member until 1986. The band was famous for kicking out bandmates when they got too old, which the joke was hitting puberty.

This is not the first time that a member of the group claimed they were raped or sexually abused by someone. But it was the first time that someone said that it was José Menéndez.

It will be interesting and heartbreaking to hear what is revealed in the limited series that starts streaming on May 2nd.


Bel-Air charmed its way into a third season

Back in 2019, when Morgan Cooper released his trailer for a serious version of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, we were all blown away by what he did.

Now, here we are four years later, Will Smith decided to turn that dream into a TV series, and Peacock picked it up to a series.

The first season did so well that the streaming service gave it a second season. The second season is doing even better, so they renewed it for a third season today.

And no one is surprised because I think it is even better than the original.

The drama is currently streaming its second season on Peacock, so spend the weekend binging it. I promise you will love it as much as everyone else who has seen it.


We are getting a Monk movie!

I miss the days when USA Network had shows like Monk and Psych on the air. While those days are long gone. Peacock keeps bringing them back for movies to remind us how good things used to be.

So far, we have gotten three Psych movies, and today the streaming service announced that they are getting one for Monk.

“When creator Andy Breckman came to us with a new Monk case set in present day, we immediately fell in love with this story all over again,” said Michael Sluchan, EVP, Movies, Kids, Daytime, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “The movie has the heart and humor of the original series with a contemporary relevance, and we’re overjoyed to work with the original creative team, including Andy, David Hoberman, Randy Zisk, the unparalleled Tony Shalhoub, and our partners at UCP, for what is sure to be a must-see movie event for Peacock audiences.”

In Mr. Monk’s Last Case: A Monk Movie, our favorite detective returns to solve one last, very personal case involving his beloved step-daughter Molly, a journalist preparing for her wedding.

I know you don’t care about that as much as you want to know who will be back for the reunion movie. Besides the obvious Tony Shaloub, we will also see Ted Levine (who better grow back his mustache), Traylor Howard, Jason Gray-Stanford, Melora Hardin, and Hector Elizondo reprise their roles.

Peacock did not say when this will debut, but I am assuming they will tie it in with the second season premiere of Poker Face. At least, that is what I would do.

Until we get the Monk movie, you can rewatch or discover all eight seasons on Peacock. Monk ran from 2001-2009.


Days of our Lives will live to see 60!

Every year when it comes to renewing Days of our Lives, we wonder if it will be back for another season. Last year, the Soap Opera moved from NBC to Peacock, and we weren’t sure if it would survive.

Well, it is making a Gloria Gaynor song and will survive. Not for one season, but two! That means it will celebrate its 60th year on the air!

Congrats to the little show that could!

Moving to the streaming service was a blessing in disguise! Now that fans aren’t beholden to a timeslot and can watch it when they want. Therefore, more people are watching the Daytime Drama.

UPDATE: In other TV news, the overpriced Val Kilmer-less Willow is one and done on Disney+, according to Deadline.


M3GAN is getting an unrated version on Peacock
February 17th, 2023 under Peacock. [ Comments: none ]

If you are like me and thought that M3GAN was tame and lame, then you are not alone. The studio gave the big screen a PG-13 version.

However, on February 24th, Peacock is giving us the one that is unrated with never before seen footage. And I can’t wait to see that android be the killing machine that she was intended to be. Let there be blood.
