Whatcha Watchin'?, Season Two

Ok, I ran out of episodes of The Equalizer, and decided to watch something else starring Queen Latifah. I only got through about 30 minutes of End of the Road before deciding it’s better to finish it during daylight hours (and far away from mealtimes :grimacing:):

Holy cow how did they manage to get Catherine de Medici to play the lead in that show?

That had passed me by in the first two episodes.
Just watched s01e03 and I get it.
Thank you for pointing that out, it would have taken me the whole season to clock it, I’m sure.
Just adds to the fun!

Will it involve amnesiac cops having ill-fated relationships with marginalised sex workers like the movies?

Hey now! That cop might be a marginalized sex worker himself! We just don’t know (and it would make no sense if he were…), but I have a theory…

Just so long as all of the robots are white /s

Not exactly a sex worker, but K (the cop in the second movie) was a replicant who was explicitly designed to be unable to disobey his human superior (the police lieutenant played by Robin Wright).

That’s why the scene where she asks “what happens if I finish [your booze]?” was so creepy—she was clearly toying with the idea of hooking up with a person who was literally incapable of withholding consent.

The Cleaning Lady is back for a second season!

Also, I’m surprised I didn’t know about this sooner. One of my favorite dwarves, and several mainstays from Irish television. Not the best detective series, but it’s good for background noise while I’m working.

Guess I might watch a Bond film after all!

I think that’s just fan wishcasting, at least for now. The producers certainly aren’t playing up the likelihood given that Elba is already 50 years old and has already gone on record saying he thinks he’s too old for the part and generally doesn’t seem interested in it anyway. As the producers put it:

“We love Idris,” said Broccoli. “The thing is, it’s [the next Bond film] going to be a couple of years off. And when we cast Bond, it’s a 10-12-year commitment.

The situation reminds me of what Sean Connery once said regarding the then-58-year-old Roger Moore being cast in View to a Kill:

At the time of this movie’s release, Sean Connery told the press, “Bond should be played by an actor 35, 33 years old. I’m too old. Roger’s too old, too!”
