Julia Fox claims that Kanye West has a big penis
November 23rd, 2022 under Kanye West, Showtime. [ Comments: 1 ]

Julia Fox was on Ziwe’s Showtime talk show and talked about how big Kanye West’s penis is. Well, she didn’t say it exactly; she had the host extend her hands to represent how big it is. And it appears to be big.

I don’t believe Fox because Kanye acts like someone who is compensating for a small penis. I mean, he is one of the hugest dicks out there, and that normally correlates to someone with a small dick.

Not all men with small dicks are big dicks. But most big dicks have a small one.

And I am the one grossed out now because I am picturing his penis. So gross.


Peleton strikes again, gives another scripted character a heart attack
January 24th, 2022 under Showtime. [ Comments: none ]

Last month, And Just Like that killed off Mr. Big with a heart attack after he used his Peleton. Well, the writers of Billions also had that idea. So, yesterday during the season premiere on Showtime, they gave Wags a heart attack while he was working out on the bike.

The Billions episode was shot in April (before the Sex and the City sequel filmed theirs), but they added the line about not going like Big after the other episode premiered, according to USA Today.

While fans are loving the killer stationary bike storylines, Peleton is not. Therefore, they issued this statement, “We get why these fictional TV shows would want to include a brand that people love to talk about, but Showtime’s use of Peloton’s Bike+ and reference to a Peloton Instructor was not a brand, product, or instructor placement, and we did not agree for our brand and IP to be used on this show or provide any equipment. As referenced by the show itself, there are strong benefits of cardio-vascular exercise to help people lead long, happy lives.”

I get where Peleton is coming from, but they are getting plenty of free promotion on two shows that have viewers in their target audience. So instead of acting like they have a bicycle seat up their a$$, they should laugh it off. It would work more in their favor.


Yellowjackets is a mystery told 25 years apart
November 14th, 2021 under Showtime. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 10p, Showtime has a new suspenseful drama, and you are going to instantly be hooked on Yellowjackets.

In 1996, the Yellowjackets, a high school girls soccer team, made it to nationals. It should have been the time of their lives, but it wasn’t. That is because their plane crashed in a remote wilderness, and they were missing for 19 months. What happened to them during that time still haunts them 25 years later.

Yellowjackets tells the story of what happened in ’96 and then 25 years later. However, someone from their past is trying to get them to reveal what happened when they were stranded. Whatever happened back then was so awful, they agreed to keep it a secret. With each episode, we get a glimpse of the horrors they went through, and why they can’t get over it.

Since they are telling the same people’s story 25 years apart, the casting department had to work hard to get actors that looked alike to play their teenage and 30-something selves. They did such a great job; they deserve the Emmy.

Who are they? There is Shauna (Sophie Nelisse/Melanie Lynskey), who was timid because she was second fiddle to her best friend Jackie (Ella Purnell), the team captain. As an adult, she is in a loveless marriage with a daughter she can’t stand. She is the one member who really wants to keep what happened a secret.

Natalie (Sophie Thatcher/Juliette Lewis) was the partying rebel back in HS and as an adult. All of those years of drinking has caught up with her, and she is in rehab. She was tough back then, and she is even tougher now. She will protect her teammates from whoever has it out for them.

Misty (Samantha Hanratty/Christina Ricci) wasn’t a player on the team. She is like their weird water girl. She desperately wants to fit, but she is too creepy to be one of them. She never loses that scary creepiness, even as an adult.

Taissa (Jasmin Savoy Brown/Tawny Cypress) thought of herself as the leader of the team, but she wasn’t. As an adult, she is running for office. Because of that, she wants to share what happened to them. However, Shauna put her foot down and won’t let them do it.

However, everyone might change their minds when they realize that someone is after them. Who is it, and why? We will just have to keep tuning in to find out in the suspenseful story about a plane crash and how surviving it destroyed them all in different ways.


Will Dexter fans finally get the ending they deserve?
October 14th, 2020 under Showtime. [ Comments: none ]

When Dexter ended its run in 2013, fans of the show were pissed about how the producers wrapped up the series. You can say they wanted to go all Dexter on them. Well, now, 7 years later, they are finally getting some killer news. The killer will be back for a ten-episode limited run next fall.

“DEXTER is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for SHOWTIME, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago,” said Gary Levine, Presidents of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series. Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world!”

What they are going to show us, we don’t know. But anything has to be better than how it ended. Although, I never should assume because it could wind up being worse. I doubt it, but it could.

Are you excited that Dexter is coming back, or do you think it should remain dead like his victims?
