September 9, 2017: Dark Matter fans Rock the Raza…and twitter!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

In a word: Wow!  Going into last night’s scheduled tweetfest, I was hoping we could double the numbers of the preceding dry-runs that tallied somewhere in the area of 29k-30k tweets.  Well, Dark Matter fans stepped up enmasse and did better.  MUCH better.  We didn’t just double those numbers.  Hell, we didn’t even triple those numbers.  Here were the results when I checked this morning –

Over 124k tweets!  And that number has climbed to over 140k in the last six hours.

We trended for over four hours in the U.S., held at #2 in Canada and L.A., and hit #1 New York!

Joining Dark Matter fans in our #RockTheRaza campaign were influencers from television, music, media, comics, and books.  It was amazing to see so many friends, new and old, throwing their support behind our little show.  So thanks to them, thanks to our incredible cast, and an extra…

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 […]

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…

So Long Mary Tyler Moore

Envisioning The American Dream

mary-tyler-moore-mtm_tvg_3-77 As a 30 year old single working woman, Mary Richards acted as a kind of stand in for a new American female for a generation of women. TV Guide May 1977

With the turn of a TV dial, Mary turned the world and my childhood on with her smile.

A constant presence on my TV screen, Mary Tyler Moore and her winning smile, shepherded me through  my Kennedy era childhood, my tumultuous teens and straight into my early adulthood.

Who didn’t love Mary as Laura Petrie, the New Rochelle housewife who defiantly  traded in the per-requisite starched dress and pearls of other TV housewives for a more fetching pair of capris.  After several seasons of stuffy and often stilted  TV sitcom  moms like June Cleaver and Margaret Anderson,  Laura was a breath of fresh suburban…
