saw only one movie on DVD; the peanuts movie. i hate to use the word delightful, but it was. if you're a fan of the comics/cartoons you'll spot a boat-load of references.

in TV; the season finally of NCIS: new orleans was not a let-down really, but spoiler )

the new season of the amazing race started & ended while i was gone. it's been just so-so for a while, but yet i still watch.

in books; i haven't read may but the ones i liked are; Queen Victoria's Children by John Van der Kiste, Heads in Beds: A Reckless Memoir of Hotels, Hustles, and So-Called Hospitality by Jacob Tomsky & The Spies of Warsaw by Alan Furst

archersangel: (blah)
as part of the disaster that took over my life not only did my brother & i loose the internet, but we had to move. it's a small place in a village, which means neighbors. something we've never really dealt with before. we've always lived out in the country where the closest neighbor was at least a half a football field (american football that is) lengthen away. now the closest one is a literal stone's throw away. we also have to pay rent, a new experience as well.
there's no smoking, drugs or loud parties (not that we did that anyway) & all kids under 18 have to be home by 10 pm. there are also "quiet hours" between 10 pm & 7 am. which puts some restriction on late-night wal-mart shopping.

we have internet, which is good & crap tv reception, which is bad. so i can't see my precious NCIS: new orleans "live" & have to catch it on (which put the 3 i missed in jan. behind a paywall. bastards) & we were getting something called cozi tv which had quantum leap episodes (30-something scott bakula at his finest) but we're putting it on the netflix DVD list. they don't have it on streaming.
archersangel: (fustration)
the amazing race still doesn't have an air date. CBS usually as two a year, one in the spring & one in the fall. but because the network picked up full seasons of a couple of shows, i guess there's no room on the schedule.

'The Amazing Race,' Season 29 can get delayed further as CBS might be thinking of stretching the show into 2017, reports Enstarz. According to the news outlet, the wait is surely going to be unbearable for the fans but it may not be that bad too. CBS has not made any announcement regarding the return of Season 29 despite the fact that it has been completely filmed and is ready to air. The Fall TV lineup of the network did not mention anything about the show and it does not look like any announcement will be made in near future.

they should air it sooner, rather than later if for no other reason than to annoy d*nald t*rump because TAR kept winning emmys when his reality show didn't.
His claims that the Emmys were rigged against his show The Apprentice came back to haunt him during the third and final presidential debate with Hillary Clinton, when his claims the election is rigged were brought up, and she used his comments about the Emmys being rigged against him-and in favor of The Amazing Race, which has won 10 Emmys-to prove it was his way of thinking when things didn't go his way.

third verse, same as the first: i don't really care for the new woman.

might have disliked her a smidgen less after this week's episode. i read somewhere that in the sixth episode their going to reveal a more vulnerable side to the character & that will all magically make us like her. *gag*

it doesn't matter one bit if the viewers start to like her, if the rating keep going down like they are this is the end of the series.

archersangel: (geek girl)
the rating are down. that is thought to be the result of brody being written out & gary glassberg's passing just last month.
After his death, another blow came to the show with the departure of Zoe McLellan‘s departure from the show, which further affected the show’s ratings. From its 11 to 12 million viewers during its premiere episode for season 3, the ratings are going downhill from there. Although the second episode rating showed some improvements, it is still low compared to what the show has been expecting.

The show has to find something to renew the interest of its viewers. Something that will take their minds away from the recent developments happening in the show. If such performance continues, there is a possibility that this could be the show’s last season.

and it doesn't help that stupid CBS moved it to 10 pm on tuesdays in favor of that stupid bull show.

also brody's replacement seems to have a hard time fitting in. the actress as well as the character.
Vanessa Ferlito, on the other hand, said in a report that she might find it a real struggle to fit in the big shoes of McLellan’s character. Furthermore she said that it is a “New Orleans thing” which means that they are “territorial.” The new cast member added that this is the gang’s place and that they are proud of New Orleans. She even described the city as a “tight-knit community.”

come on people! i'm not happy with this change, but i want to have scott bakula on my tv on a regular basis. *sigh* maybe those goofy cult of scott bakula people are right & his career did die for our sins.

archersangel: (sexy)
no reason why i'm posting these, but then i probably don't need a reason.

"a conversation with scott bakula" a nerd HQ 2016 (some thing zachary levi from chuck does)

scott on CBS sunday morning talking about NCIS: NOLA

scott at the 50th anniversary trek creation con in vegas

he sang just a little bit of a song from hamilton & if i didn't internally squee, i certainly squeaked because just a couple of days ago i posted a thing about a NCIS: NOLA/hamilton fusion.

he mentioned that if ENT had gone on longer the might have been a musical episode. so now, there needs to be a musical episode of NCIS: NOLA

On the same day CBS went on the defensive about the lack of diversity on its fall schedule, "Star Trek: Discovery" executive producer Bryan Fuller made clear that his new series will not have that problem.
Fuller announced Wednesday that the new show will feature a female lead character and honor the franchise's history of inclusion.

"'Star Trek' started with a wonderful expression of diversity in its cast. You had a Russian with a black woman and an Asian man amongst a Vulcan, which is a different kind of diversity," Fuller told reporters at a panel for the show at the Television Critics Association press tour. "We're absolutely continuing that tradition."
Fuller also said the new series will "absolutely" have a gay character.

MacGruber has come and gone, Mythbusters is winding down its final season, but as these MacGyver proteges pass away, the original is coming back. EW has confirmed that in a meeting with analysts Friday morning, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer announced the studio is developing a film reboot of the classic TV show.

“I’m also pleased to announce this morning that we’ve joined with our friends at CBS on a development deal to re-envision the MacGyver franchise in film and television, with CBS taking the lead on the TV show and Lionsgate taking the lead on the film,” Feltheimer said.

archersangel: by helens78 (dreamsheep)
when the show comes back from "winter hiatus" on Jan. 5 it will have a 2-hour "cross-over event" with NCIS.

i think it's called sister city & it starts with NCIS which airs before NCIS: NOLA. so if you don't watch one of the series, you have to make plans to watch both to get the full story.
archersangel: (star wars)
a few year back i posted about ABC looking to do a live-action star wars series in the wake of disney buying lucasfilm. well it looks like some insiders are not closing the door on that yet.

I talked to Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy over the weekend at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press junket, the full interview will hit the site later in the week. During my chat I learned that the company is still spending a lot of time looking, discussing and developing two of the most notorious left-over projects from the George Lucas era: the live-action Star Wars TV show Star Wars: Underworld and the Star Wars 1313 video game. Could either of these thought to have been abandoned projects find new light in the Disney era? Find out after the jump.

and they have to have another scene with some ford product racing around to show how awesome ford autos are. it's the same thing on the amazing race, every seasons for the past few years has had them drive a ford at some point. they even had them hook-up a big pick-up to a bolder to pull it away to reveal a clue. the whole time they were raving over how well it did the job. i rolled my eyes so hard at that.

(i don't think i did this before.)

here are some random links i've found over the years that could be of interest to a fic writer.

seventh sanctum is a "generator" site for names of places, things & people. need a name for an alien race? a dragon? a weapon? a sci-fi government? currency? a tavern? tarot cards? and if you don't like what is generated, you can try again for 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 suggestions. best for fantasy, sci-fi & anime stories.

fantasy name generator like it says it's a generator for names of fantasy characters & place names too. some "real" names can be generated as well. but since the name order is random, you sometimes get a name that only sounds (or looks like) they would fit for a real-world character. especially the ancient roman names.

internet movie firearms database want to know what gun(s) the main guy(s) in a movie or tv show use? the the bad guy(s)? what gun the third thug from the left had? or what guns were in the display case in the background? they even cover stuff like RPGs & mortars and if the gun is a real thing or something they modified for the cool factor. you can even search by actor to see what weapons they used in various shows & movies. they cover anime too.

fic writer's guide to firearms by [ profile] chn_breathmint covers gun safety, clips vs. magazines, types of ammo, types of guns & even what happens when a person is shot. it's in four parts with a link to each part at the bottom of the one before. focuses on the movie inception, but the gun info is mostly universal.
