I knew what I was getting into ……before I even got into it. Have you ever seen a trailer for a show, and you knew that there was no WAY this show was going to be a dud? You looked at the cast…….you looked at the writers……you looked at the thesis of the show, and just knew you were about to see nothing but quality?
That’s where my head was with “BILLIONS” before I saw it.This series delves into the uber dark world of wall street trading and the consequences faced by those left behind…….both in the money world and the legal world.
Starring Damian Lewis(Nicholas Brody- Homeland, for which he won an Emmy) and Paul Giamatti(John Adams- John Adams, A masterpiece of American political history)as the ying and yang of the business world. These two seem built specifically as the “frenemies” of each other. So much in common, yet so far apart ideologically. Rounding out the cast is Maggie Siff( Sons of Anarchy),Malin Maria Akerman(Silk Spectre2- Watchman),and David Costabile(Breaking Bad).
If you haven’t watched the first season you still have time as the second season does not start until Feb.19th.I believe it’s on Netflix or Showtime on demand.
Here’s the Season 2 Trailer
Reports are in that FOX might be okay with starting FIREFLY back up again. On one condition. Mr.Joss Whedon is involved. I’ve of two minds on this one.FOX could be just blowing smoke up everyone’s butts by suggesting that they would do it if Joss came back OR they may be extending an olive branch to see how far it grows out. I really hope it’s the latter.
Obviously a reboot would be missing a few characters. The late Ron Glass” Shepard” and DOA in the movie “Serentity”actor Alan Tudyk”Hoban Washburne”.Nathan Fillion and Alan are actually working on a web series right now called”Con Man” and I suspect if one was in, the other might join on also.
Gina Torres just did a stint on “Westworld” but I think her other engagements are relatively open and I would be surprised if she turned down the opportunity. I’m slowly talking myself into it folks.
Thanks to the “The Verge” for the source material.

I had to read up a bit on this as I had left the Harry Potter universe behind after the last film. It appears there is a British play that is selling out in London called “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. “It ‘s doing so well in fact that ,of course, there is talk of putting it up on the big screen…..as a trilogy(Hopefully not the same type of trilogy as the Hobbit where they REALLY stretched the script).
By talk, I mean there are rumor’s of discussions of chat with the cast. Yep, it’s that damn firm. I would not mind seeing a story taking place years later and moving the story forward PROVIDED they did not re-hash the original series to death(Hi J.J!!!).
I think for the right amount of money(whether that involved being thrown into the money pile would remain to be seen) all of the actors would come back .If it was to begin , it would not be doing so until 2026(after the last Fantastic Beasts movie) and that’s plenty of time to either establish yourself in other acting roles, or thank god for the opportunity at a paycheck.
Before I finished this article I read directly from J.K Rowling’s twitter account that none of this will happen. She was quite emphatic about it ,which convinces me more then ever that it may in fact happen. See below for the harsh twitter denial.
Inspiration from the folks at Digital Spy via the folks at the “Unofficial Universal Orlando Podcast”
This is probably one of the cooler articles I’ve read in the past few days. Imagine meeting someone who loves the Star Wars universe so much that they picked through frame by frame of the films and investigated who all the characters(both with speaking parts and not) and artifacts were…..and what they did. Our very own intergalactic ANCESTRY.com if you will….
Pablo has released two Visual Dictionaries so far. One for THE FORCE AWAKENS and one for ROGUE ONE along with 8 other books on the history of Star Wars looking at various niches involved in the making of the movies.
