The first trailer for the new James Bond movie, No Time To Die, was released today...
These movies all pretty much have the same plot, lots of being chased, shot at, big stunts, being captured, almost dying, then escaping, the end.
But, they are always well done, beautifully shot, and good mindless fun until the next one rolls around.
We'll see how Daniel Craig's final Bond performance does when it opens on April 8th.

Very sad news over the weekend...
Veteran actress and Will & Grace breakout star and fan-favorite Shelley Morrison died Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She was 83.
In addition to Will & Grace, Morrison’s resume includes a lengthy list of TV series and films. From 1967 to 1970 She played Sister Sixto alongside Sally Field in the iconic series The Flying Nun.
She also had guest-starring roles in other TV staples from the ’60s on, including The Fugitive, L.A. Law and Murder, She Wrote. She also provided the voice of Mrs. Portillo in Handy Manny, an animated series from Disney. She also appeared alongside many legendary actors in many films including How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life (1968) alongside Dean Martin, Funny Girl (1968) with Barbra Streisand, Mackenna’s Gold (1969) with Gregory Peck as well as Fools Rush In (1997) with Salma Hayek.
The actress’s career spans 50 years but is best known as the sharp-tongued maid Rosario Salazar from NBC’s Will & Grace who would go head to head with Megan Mullally’s Karen Walker, trading verbal jabs and insults. She played the character for eight seasons from 1999 to 2006 and won a Screen Actors Guild award for best ensemble in a comedy series.
I used to love her on The Flying Nun and especially on Will and Grace. Her arguments with Karen were one of my favorite parts of the show. Like this one for example...
I thought the show did a great job of paying tribute to her and the character this past year. They must have known that she was ill.
She will be missed but fondly remembered.

A trailer for the upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earths was released today...
I've enjoyed seeing all of the CW heroes come together each year for their crossover events, so am really looking forward to this one too.
It all starts on Sunday December 8th.

It appears that the director of TV's Fargo and Legion series may be writing and directing the next Star Trek movie...
Paramount Pictures is in final talks with Noah Hawley to write and direct a Star Trek film. Through his 26 Keys production banner he will produce along with JJ Abrams and his Bad Robot banner. Hawley will helm the fourth film in this iteration of the venerable franchise, with the Enterprise crew led by Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg and Karl Urban.
In addition to his groundbreaking series Legion, Hawley serves as executive producer, writer, director and showrunner on FX’s Emmy-winning limited series Fargo. He currently is in production on the fourth season, which stars Chris Rock, with Hawley directing the first episodes.
I like both of those series and, of course, love Star Trek.
All available body parts are crossed that this will happen soon.

The first trailer for the upcoming HBO sci-fi/comedy series Avenue 5 was released....
It looks like it's trying to be a cross between The Love Boat and The Orville. I'm not sure whether that combo is gonna work or not.
Guess we'll find out when it comes out in January.
