At least there was one bright spot yesterday regarding the first Presidential debates...we were surprised with a new "mini-episode" of Will and Grace, focused on the election.
They actually did a really good job recreating the set and getting the cast wrangled on such short notice. They slipped back into character almost seamlessly and it was fun to see them all (even Rosario!) together again after almost 10 years.
The networks really should think about bringing them all back and creating another season or two.

This upcoming new TBS show, People of Earth, looks like it might be entertaining...
It's got a good cast and the trailer is pretty funny. Hopefully it'll be worth watching.

Crash and Smash
If you liked Mad Max: Fury Road...then you'll enjoy this video of some of the action footage without any CGI. Pretty amazing how many dangerous stunts and effects were done with real people involved.
I'm good with my desk job.

Well, this is kinda sad news...
One of Hollywood's highest profile marriages is over. Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences.
According to the court documents, the pair separated on September 15, two years and one month after they married in August 2014.
While Pitt and Jolie married in 2014 their relationship became the subject of speculation in 2004, when they co-starred in "Mr. & Mrs. Smith." At the time, Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston. In January 2005, Pitt and Aniston announced they were splitting and Aniston filed for divorce a few months later.
I thought they usually seemed happy and certainly did a lot of good, not only with their family, but with the various causes they both supported over the years.
However, there are reports that Brad has had an ongoing weed and alcohol issue, so apparently Angelina had become concerned for her kids (she's seeking full custody and wanting him to just be granted visitation rights...so that does say something).
I know there are two sides to every story, so we'll probably never really know what happened between Brad-Jennifer-Angelina.
But, I'm betting that when Jennifer Aniston heard the news, she was all...

Star Wars VFX
You'll definitely appreciate how amazing the effects were in Star Wars: The Force Awakens after watching this rare "Behind the Magic" video....

It looks exactly like the kind of tear-jerker that I enjoy and, likely, will have me ugly-crying in the theater.
You have all been forewarned.

Still Kicking and Stretching
Exactly 50 years ago, today, the very first episode of Star Trek premiered on television and, all these years later, the brand is still growing and going stronger as time moves forward.
Star Trek has had many incarnations over the years—there have been six television shows, 726 total episodes, 13 movies, and one reboot—but its primary mission has stayed the same. The result is a series that won countless awards (31 Emmys!) but has also fostered a massive fandom that includes actors, politicians, and more. It’s a show that created and made famous many of the tropes that science fiction uses all the time now. It’s a series so influential that an actual spacecraft was named after the fictional starship Enterprise. Scientists have spent years working to turn the fake technology seen in the series into a reality.
It seems impossible now, but back in 1966, the original Star Trek was not an easy sell—it had two pilots and a major cast change before going on the air—and it was canceled after three seasons, due to low ratings. But thanks to syndication, a loyal fandom arose, one that has only grown over the last five decades. Now it’s an institution. And it’s an institution that will continue, as the series finally returns to TV next year with Bryan Fuller’s highly anticipated Star Trek: Discovery.
Happy Anniversary, Star Trek!!
May you still be as popular (and flexible) over the next 50 years.
Live Long and Prosper.
