    How will scripted TV handle the coronavirus?

    When scripted television finally returns with new episodes, how do you think they will handle the coronavirus? Will they faithfully depict the mask-wearing, social distancing world as it now is, or some fantasy world where it never happened? I imagine that the more realistically inclined like...

    What kind of Alien movie would you like to see?

    I came across this video on YouTube speculating on what the future might be for the Alien films now that Disney has taken over the franchise. First, although I don't care fro prequels in general, if Ridley Scott only has one more to go to fill in the gap between Alien Covenant and Alien, then I...

    Howie Hawkins Australian TV interview

    Presumptive Greens nominee Howie Hawkins was interviewed on the Australian Planet America programme last week. Despite the frivolous-sounding name and the lighthearted tone, the show provides a (mostly) serious analysis of American news with a focus on presidential politics. The Hawkins...

    Abby: Psychopath or Machiavellian?

    At one point Greg says to Abby that she's a "borderline psychopath." I happened to be listening to a radio programme the other day where they were talking about Psychopathy and Machiavellianism and it seems to me that the latter describes her more closely. The key difference appears to be that...

    How Do You Pronounce "Worry"?

    How do you pronounce the word "worry"? Until recently it was always pronounced to rhyme with "hurry". Now more and more often I hear it pronounced to rhyme with "sorry" - and it's annoying. You might argue that it is more consistent this way but since when was consistency a feature of the...

    Miss Ellie's breakdown

    I've just started a rewatch of Lorimar Dallas Season 7 (DVD). Miss Ellie is being kept on ice by Clayton at the Takapa Resort, sedated, because of how badly she was affected by The Fight For Ewing Oil. This may be what TNT Dallas is referring to when they say that she was in some kind of home...

    Father and Daughter Hitmakers

    With Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus simultaneously on the charts recently, I was trying to think of other father and daughter combinations who have achieved the same feat. The only ones I came up with were Frank and Nancy Sinatra in the sixties. I'm pretty sure that Marty Wilde's chart days were...

    Holy Accolade! Burt Ward Gets Star on Hollywood Walk Of Fame

    Burt Ward is getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame 50 years after playing Robin on the Batman TV series. Somewhere Adam West is looking down and saying, "Well done, old chum!" :) https://variety.com/2020/tv/features/batman-burt-ward-hollywood-walk-of-fame-interview-1203453454/

    Alec Baldwin's "Here's the Thing"

    Australia's ABC Radio National has been playing some of Alec Baldwin's interview series as a summer fill-in. He talks to, among others, Barbra Streisand, Jerry Seinfeld, Carly Simon, James Cromwell - no fellow former Knots vets as yet, unfortunately. I've been very impressed by his interview...

    L.A.'s Finest

    We're about five episodes into this now. @Mel O'Drama This is what I imagine the rebooted Cagney & Lacey would have been like had it gone ahead. Gabrielle Unions and Jessica Alba as two female buddy cops in Los Angeles - one black, one white, the latter married with a teenage stepdaughter...

    New 007 is a woman

    A quote borrowed from another thread. http://soapchat.net/threads/the-13th-dr-who-is.2896/#post-72380 It's been reported that in the next James Bond movie, Bond is retired and the 007 number has been reassigned to another agent - who is female. I've been opposed to the idea of a female Bond as...

    Idiotsitter

    Idiotsitter. Has anyone watched this? It's one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. It's about a woman who is hired as a nanny only to discover that her charge is actually a grown woman under house arrest. The "nanny" quickly becomes as crazy as the "child" and they get mixed up in all kinds...

    Names that spellcheck doesn't recognise

    I'm not sure if the spellcheck feature I'm seeing comes from the forum software or my computer's operating system but it has some surprising omissions. For instance, it recognises Superman and even Superwoman - but not Supergirl. I see it now underlined I red. It knows The Beatles (with an...

    Alternate theory re Bobby's return and Knots Landing

    With all due regard to @Mustard 's well-argued defence of the dual universe theory, I frankly just don't like the idea of two sets of Ewings running around living two sets of lives. If we're going to borrow from science fiction concepts I'd rather say that time was reset when Pam woke up...

    Star Trek Star Trek Universe to expand; Picard to return?

    https://www.space.com/40939-more-star-trek-tv-shows-coming.html I've always like the idea of a Starfleet Academy series but my first choice remains one that will move into the future. I don't see much point in a Khan show and I'm luke-warm on Picard returning unless maybe it's a recurring role...

    The Good Doctor vs The Resident

    These two medical dramas premiered with a short time of each other and so invite comparison. According to the advertising, The Good Doctor is currently Australia's favourite drama but personally I prefer The Resident. The Good Doctor himself, played by Freddie Highmore, is okay but he can't...
