The Enduring Romance of Beauty and the Beast

Lady Smut

by Kiersten Hallie Krum

I remember the first time I saw Beauty and the Beast in 1991. It was in the Berkeley Heights movie theater. Thursday nights were buy one, get one, but I went with my friends for a matinée. Funny, I can’t remember who I was with, but I distinctly remember that first moment when the curtain drew back (yes, it had a curtain across the screen) and the first image of the movie filled the frame.

I gasped. For real. I spent the first 90 seconds wavering back and forth between thinking it was real and believing it was a cartoon. The colors were so bright, the images so crisp, it was breathtaking, as in it literally took my breath away. Minutes later, the opening number “Belle” began and I was officially enraptured. The complexity of the song, the brilliance of the lyrics, the timing of the…

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…
