It was announced sometime back that when daytime drama shows returned from hiatus, the actors over age 65 would not be allowed to tape scenes right away. This was because of the risk of COVID-19 for older adults. Eric Braeden ( Victor Newman, The Young and the Restless) immediately spoke out saying that senior cast members should be able to sign a waiver and resume working if they so desire. It looks like Braeden wields the same power as his, alter ego, Victor because Soap Dirt says the veteran actor will be among the first on the set, should Y&R begin taping next week. The projected first day is alleged to be July 15.
When it comes to spoiler alerts and breaking news related to the four remaining soap operas, fans know to tread with caution. This is especially true when a serious accusation is lodged against a favorite actor or actress. Viewers don't like to be given fake news, but in the entertainment business, it does happen. Just because a set insider or trusted source has supposedly revealed breaking news, does not prove that it is absolutely true. Even so, viewers do want to know what is allegedly going on with their favorite programs as well as the cast members who portray their beloved characters. Having said that I will now report what has been written, but please keep in mind this is merely a rumor at this point.
Although the films are beloved, the general consensus is that the third installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, At World's End (2007), is...questionable at best. Despite the litany of reasons one could argue that this film was Not That Good, the iconic rain-soaked wedding of Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner is not one of them. Quite the opposite, it's one of the few aspects of the movie that most viewers can't complain about.

Ever since I started watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine, I’ve been a massive fan of Andy Samberg. Of course, I had heard of his exploits on Saturday Night Live and as one of the members of The Lonely Island before, but it was after I saw him as Jake Peralta that I began to take notice of his incredible charm and talent for comedy. It was only natural, therefore, that I immediately plop myself down first thing in the morning when I heard that a new movie starring him titled Palm Springs, had been released on Hulu. I went into the movie completely blind and not knowing what to expect, and what I found was pleasantly surprising. Palm Springs is a light-hearted romantic comedy that can get surprisingly poignant at times, yet never loses itself in its more serious moments.
Perhaps there is no stronger contender for the title of “breakout star” in Better Call Saul than Rhea Seehorn’s Kim Wexler.
I’ve decided to analyze one of my favorite movies of all time; The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The plot is set during the World War II bombings and four siblings are sent to a country house, by their mother, so they can be safe. In this country house, the youngest of the siblings, Lucy Pevensie, finds a wardrobe, which was actually a portal that took her to Narnia. The next time she ventures through the wardrobe, she brings her other three siblings with her and along with the narnian creatures, set off to defeat and dethrone the Queen of Narnia (who was not actually the queen, but rather the evil White Witch, who likes to call herself the Queen) to take their rightful place on the throne and release all of Narnia from her terror.
In what I write, which is fantasy set in current times. I like that the elderly neighbor who is nosey and wise, that just might be a witch. I like to imagine that pixies live in the garden complaining about car exhaust. I love when the fantasy dove tails with some aspects of what is going on in the “Real World”. Yet, there seems to be something a smidge off in most books.
