    :lol: I hadn't thought about that but... yeah! :lol:

    Speaking of that, there IS actually a documentary going on right now about George Lucas and the OT called "Icons Unearthed: Star Wars" on Vice TV Tuesday nights. I had no idea the shitstorm Lucas and his crew went through to get the OT films made. It really is fascinating stuff and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in Star Wars or independent film-making.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    My Stepfather thinks its real, and made me promise to watch "the latest episode" because I am woefully uninformed about how spooky the world truly is.

    First it was too difficult to explain that he's watching reruns, when I have access to US TV as it airs, so I'm not going to be able to watch the episode he wants me to watch unless he gives me an episode number or a title, but still he persisted to keep repeating "Just watch the episode from last Friday".

    So...

    In the episode I fell asleep during, they were using "radios" to locate wormholes hovering above mutilated cattle.

    ##ck off.

    I hadn't heard of that one, but I did start watching Light & Magic on Disney+. Really good so far.

    Not so much as canceled as being moved to a streaming service.

    Days of Our Lives is moving from NBC to Peacock starting in September.

    I understand they removed some HBO stuff like Vinyl but I am confused. Why would removing it from HBOMAX also remove it from regular HBO as well? I thought those things were merged together.

    Maybe they want to remove past series that haven't fared well, and only showcase the successes.

    So it'll be nothing but The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and Game of Thrones. Good to know.

    The move away from cable was more than audiences wanting to cut their cable bill. it was about being able to pick what you wanted, and I suspect a lot of subsribers were like me and sick of the shit of knowing most of what they got was unwatchable reality shows etc. But the MBAs that control all of entertainment are the flees riding on the dog. they hopped over with the change in industry and have a whole new crock of shit warming up. They can't even pay attention to the lesson of Netflix that cutting the movies, getting audiences involved in series only to end them 3 seasons in as a matter of policy and, again, pouring on the budget friendly reality shows, doesn't work.

    It's much easier to cut off a subscription streaming service than it was to cut cable. There will probably have to be a few financial train wrecks in the streaming field or some successes that are the case-against before they will figure that out.

    They're claiming them as losses on their taxes. In order to do that, the shows and movies can never be monetized again. They're sacrificing content for tax credits.

    Skinwalker all comes down to one dude running a scam in the 90's and making it big selling it to Bigelow for a fortune. Bigelow used government funds to run experiments there for years until even he gave up trying to find anything and sold it off. Now other scammers have a reality show about it.

    I think it's hilarious that Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav could keep a straight face saying that Batgirl was crap and was better off axed when his tenure at Discovery Communications saw TLC start cranking out shit like Jon and Kate Plus 8, Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo, and that show about the creepy-ass Duggar family. Fuck you, Zaslav. Fuck you and the horse you rode in on.
