June 11, 2017: A busy week ahead! And more Dark Matter season 3 premiere fallout! — Josephmallozzi’s Weblog

Well, it’s decided! Sort of. I’ve packed away most of my belongings and squirreled them away in the crawlspace. This week, the place gets a top to bottom interior cleaning, an exterior power wash, and then, on Friday, the stagers come in to prepare the place for showing. The house goes on the market this […]

Tony Snubs: 5 Big Surprises From the 2017 Awards — Variety

In a year without a “Hamilton,” the races for the 2017 Tony Awards had seemed fraught with unpredictably. But while there were a couple of dark horses (“Come From Away,” “A Doll’s House, Part 2”) giving the frontrunners (“Dear Evan Hansen,” “Oslo”) a run for their money, the night played out largely as expected. Even……

Wonder Woman: Worth the 40 Year Wait — Lady Smut

by Kiersten Hallie Krum I was five years old in 1977 when I jumped off my older sister’s canopy bed and sprained my arm. Hers was a tall bed, tall enough to house a trundle bed underneath, and was as high as I could get at just past 9 PM on a Friday evening. You […]

Doctor Who’s “The Empress of Mars”: Can’t We All Just Get Along? — We Minored in Film

I’ve been accused (and perhaps fairly so) of reading too much into Doctor Who’s recent episodes, seeing social commentary where I wanted to. As such, I hesitate to share my views on “The Empress of Mars” since it struck me as having a slight Brexit feel to it. It’s not as overtly about anything current […]

Timeless’ Renewed or Cancelled: Will Abigail Spencer’s Show be Back for Season 2? By Daniel S. Levine

I have been researching Timeless’ destiny but have been coming up empty handed. That is, until today. A Bing search yielded this article, about 7 days old. At the very least, I now know that Timeless is on the “bubble”. By now, most shows have either been renewed or sent to cancelation hell. NBC has certainly gotten hopes up by ordering more episodes. The series complied and Timeless managed a full season with an unfinished story. Timeless’ basic storyline is not a new idea, but a fresh take on time travel. It has an ensemble of excellent actors backed up by script writers weaving their magic for each foray into a different time in history. We have a team with established chemistry: Lucy Preston, Rufus Carlin and Wyatt Logan. The plotline from IMDb states: “A trio travels through time to battle a master criminal out to alter human history in this drama.”. This master criminal is Garcia Flynn. This series has kept me glued to my tv and DVR. The ratings in that coveted 18-49 demographic have been fairly stable with some slight dips. I think that speaks well for a freshman drama. NBC, please don’t let Timeless slip down the “bubble” into cancelation oblivion! – M Barnett

‘Timeless’ Renewed or Cancelled: Will Abigail Spencer’s Show be Back for Season 2?

The season finale of NBC‘s Timeless aired tonight, so you will be wondering if the show is coming back for a second season. As of now, the time-travelling show starring Abigail Spencer and Matt Lanter has yet to be renewed for a second season and its prospects are looking dim. Although the ratings for the show haven’t been great, its creators are confident that there will be more episodes in Fall 2017 and that’s how they wrote the season one finale…
