  1. American Gods in the Media

    Well it seems they managed to finish the season, somehow. I guess we'll see what happens.
  2. The Spoiler Collection

    I'm not surprised, Bill loves getting violent, but usually no one fights back. (This is not an endorsement of Ridge and Thorn's behavior - I'd be much happier if all three of them ended up dead.)
  3. Ah, another "ruined" life: Bryan Singer gets a $10 million directing job. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/bryan-singer-nabs-huge-payday-directing-red-sonja-1148877
  4. Spoilers and Speculation

    From "Walking Dead Family & Friends" via Facebook, this is the rest of the season premiere after the released video.
  5. I have to say, watching him escorted out to prison in cuffs while some of his victims stand in the rain has left me emotional. I hope this brings them some amount of peace. And I pray it gives hope to everyone who has been victimized that they can be heard and believed and get some justice. And I hope every bastard out there who thinks they can do whatever they want to people with less power shudders in their boots.
  6. Cosby has been sentenced to 3-10 years in state prison. These are tweets from a reporter in the courtroom.
  7. I know I could never watch the show again. Not just because of what he's done, but because he used that fame, that perfect family man image, the show itself, to lure and silence his victims. I'm sorry for everyone else involved but, no. And it was my favorite show by far growing up.
  8. Race & Ethnicity on TV

    I think those issues can and should be separated. The history of black characters being portrayed by women who have one black and one non-black parent (particularly if they're to be considered desirable) is long, and problematic. The prevalence of biracial actresses is more about colorism than their actual parentage. The visual proximity to whiteness and white beauty standards. But that's not the same thing as them not being black. I'm not interested in policing anyone's blackness, personally.
  9. Yeah, he does credit her. It's other people who fail to do so.
  10. Race & Ethnicity on TV

    They really do! I want to go out for happy hour with them.
  11. Fortunately for the world, he also finds time to engage in a lot of really excellent journalism.
  12. Good news, everyone! Sean Penn has things to say: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/sean-penn-says-black-white-metoo-movement-divides-men-women-1143989?utm_source=twitter Unlike, say, this kind of thing, which really serves to unite men and women: Thanks for your input, Sean!
  13. Well, Julie Chen has made it clear. Looking forward to her impending unemployment.
