++ After seeing the trailer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, I am even more excited than I was before. We only had a brief sneak peek last time, but here we get actual footage from the series and I'm incredibly impressed with it. So far from what we see in this trailer, there's a blend of the old school puppetry and use of special effects to enhance the world, and I really like that. And this is only a teaser trailer, which I'm assuming we'll be getting another one between now and before it premieres, but damn. I'm all in. Although I know that Netflix has been very picky about this very thing, I'm just hoping that it'll be released onto DVD/Bluray. Because, what's the point if I can't have the movie and the series together on my DVD shelf? I need a completed collection, dammit.

++ One Day At A Time has been saved by CBS! I was honestly surprised by this news, because based on what was being reported it seemed that Netflix was refusing to budge for anyone to save the show. But it seems like that was only for other streaming services to pick it up, not network television. It's still shitty what Netflix did, and continues to do, with the majority of their programming by cancelling after three seasons (or less) with no warning whatsoever based on a fucked up subscriber algorithm, but I'm happy that at least ODAAT was able to be saved.

++ Very recently, since many videos were popping up in preparation for the release of the Child's Play remake, I went down the rabbit hole of watching Aubrey Plaza videos on YouTube, from compilations to interviews and other segments. I've always loved Aubrey ever since Parks and Rec, but I hadn't watched some of her interviews and things in a while so I just went down that rabbit hole of hunting them down. I love her so much. We kind of share the same sense of humor, and I do like how she's become more comfortable during interviews now, while still maintaining that level of deadpan humor and awkwardness. My favorite recent ones are her episode on Hot Ones and her taking a lie detector test. But really, everything she does is gold. ❤

++ It was announced yesterday that Halle Bailey has been cast as Ariel in the upcoming live-action The Little Mermaid, and naturally all the racists have come out of the woodwork being mad about it because this Ariel is going to be black. This happens every single time, it's quite predictable, and just seeing the mental gymnastics they do to defend their racism and ignorance is just wild. It's not really surprising anymore, just disappointing. Either way, while The Little Mermaid is not my favorite Disney movie, and while these live-action remakes are a huge hit-or-miss for me personally, I have no problems about this casting at all.
