‘Euphoria’ Lets Rue Catch Her Breath in Special Episode ‘Trouble Don’t Last Always’: TV Review

Click here to read the full article.

When I think of “Euphoria,” I think of neon lights, glitter smeared across bleary eyes, dizzying camera angles betraying the disoriented teenage mania that fuels it. I think of Rue (Zendaya) staring across a crowded room at Jules (Hunter Schaefer) with such palpable longing that it hurts. I think of the stunning last moments of the season finale, when Rue mourns Jules leaving her at a train station by relapsing and collapsing into a musical fever dream. I think of the last time we see her, when she’s dragged herself up a pile of writhing bodies only to throw herself off the cliff of them. By design, “Euphoria” is completely overwhelming, throwing too much all at once at its audience and daring it to blink.

“Trouble Don’t Last Always” does none of this. The new special episode — which dropped Dec. 4 at

Most conservatives don’t understand purpose of journalism, says founder of website on media bias

In 2005, Matthew Sheffield launched what would become one of the preeminent conservative websites devoted to calling out liberal bias in the mainstream media.

Over the last decade, however, Sheffield — who founded NewsBusters with his brother Greg and worked there until 2014 — has come to believe that he was part of a problem, not a solution, and is now working to correct that error.

The problem, as he describes it, is that most conservatives think the purpose of journalism is to wage partisan political warfare, and that has created an ecosystem on the right where facts and truth are increasingly irrelevant.

Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Babyface Share ‘He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It’

The production duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have released the music video for their collaborative single “He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It,” featuring Babyface.

The video cuts between Jam and Lewis in the studio and Babyface serenading the listener on his blue guitar, as different women listen and dance to the slow jam single. “He don’t know nothin’ ’bout it/’Bout time you found a man,” Babyface croons. “He just beaten’ ’round it/Girl he don’t understand.”

Although Jam and Lewis have been producing albums for nearly four decades, most notably with Janet Jackson, “He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It” is their debut artist release. The collaboration has been in the works since Babyface presented the production duo with the Icon Award and performed alongside them at the 2019 Soul Train Awards. Jam and Lewis are set to release their first ever album of all original music in 2021.

Harry Styles Says One Direction Don’t Compare Themselves to Each Other

Just because Harry Styles is enjoying a thriving solo career, what with the massive success of his most recent album, Fine Line, and his appearance on the cover of Vogue, doesn’t mean he doesn’t look back on his time as part of One Direction fondly — and he wants to make sure everyone knows that the band does not embarrass him.

Harry snagged the cover of Variety, where he was named Hitmaker of the Year, and opened up about how 1D impacted his solo journey and that of his bandmates, who have all had solo success of their own since Zayn Malik’s departure and 1D’s hiatus. 

“When you look at the history of people coming out of bands and starting solo careers, they feel this need to apologize for being in the band. ‘Don’t worry, everyone, that wasn’t me! Now I get to do what I really want

Florence Pugh Masks Up for Afternoon on Set of 'Don't Worry Darling' in Palm Springs

Florence Pugh is spending another long day on set of Don’t Worry Darling!

The 24-year-old Oscar-nominated actress was seen staying safe in a face mask while on set of her new Olivia Wilde-directed movie on Wednesday (December 2) in Palm Springs, Calif.

Florence was seen wearing a black dress and showed off her character’s diamond engagement ring and was spotted running across set to film her next scene.

The day before, Florence was spotted filming scenes with her on-screen husband Harry Styles outside of the characters’ house.

Not much is known about the film, but reportedly, “the setting is an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert and centers on a housewife who uncovers a disturbing truth about her seemingly perfect life.”

Last month filming on Don’t Worry Darling was halted for a few weeks after a crew member tested

Stephen Lang Says Don’t Breathe 2 Is Its Own Thing

Don’t Breathe 2 is finally coming our way next year, but don’t expect a repeat of the first movie. This, according to star Stephen Lang, who will be reprising his role as “the blind man” from the 2016 horror/thriller. Even though much remains mysterious, Lang says that the sequel is very much its own thing.

Stephen Lang is currently promoting a very different type of project; his new children’s book, The Wheatfield. During a recent interview, the actor was asked about the upcoming sequel, which wrapped filming back in October. The movie managed to film during quarantine, which is an accomplishment on its own. As Lang explained, in some ways, the health and safety protocols enacted on set worked in his favor as an actor. Here’s what he had to say about it.

Will a ‘GLOW’ Movie Happen? Alison Brie Says ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

Click here to read the full article.

Fans of Netflix’s “GLOW” were dealt a wallop of a disappointment last month when the planned fourth and final season of the popular comedy series about women’s professional wrestling was axed due to the pandemic. Cast member Marc Maron shortly thereafter stoked fans’ excitement when he suggested that the best way to wrap the series would be a two-hour movie to give the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling one more shot in the ring. Alison Brie, according to a recent discussion as part of The Playlist’s “The Fourth Wall” podcast, shares that sentiment, but is also pessimistic about the return.

“I certainly think a [‘GLOW’] movie could tie everything up,” said Brie. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers. And they’re so devoted to these characters that they created. I think a movie would be a great way to wrap it

Alison Brie on a Possible GLOW Movie: ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

One of the more recent casualties of Netflix’s new harsh habit of canceling shows unceremoniously is GLOW, which, rather than being canceled, was actually ‘un-renewed.’ Which is to say it had already been picked up for a fourth and final season before Netflix changed its mind and pulled the plug completely, leaving fans in limbo with an unfinished story.Obviously, in times like these, viewers might clamor for that one extra season, even if it’s a shortened version, just to give some closure. Or, in this case, a GLOW wrap up movie, which fans (and star Marc Maron) have asked for.

While talking to The Playlist’s podcast, The Fourth Wall, Brie opened up about the possibility of a movie – and why she’s not exactly counting on it happening.

“I certainly think a [GLOW] movie could tie everything up,” Brie said. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers.

Lockdown: Don’t buy pets on social media, charities say

A box of abandoned kittensPress Association

Animal charities have warned people not to buy pets from breeders advertising on social media platforms like Facebook.

A BBC investigation has revealed puppies and kittens are being advertised through the platform, even though Facebook guidelines say the animals cannot be sold between private individuals.

Charities say that the animals may be sick, too young or it could be a scam, with no pet for sale at all.

The warning comes as demand for pets increases over lockdown, with the RSPCA calling these sellers “extremely irresponsible”.

“We know that there are lots of unscrupulous breeders and sellers out there who exploit social media and classified websites in order to sell puppies and kittens without arousing suspicion,” a RSPCA spokesperson said.

It says people should consider adopting from a rescue centre first, or follow its advice on buying dogs and cats – including seeing where the animal was bred.
