Horror master Wes Craven, stopped playing this game at the age of 76. Known for (among many other things) being the creator of the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise, it may possibly now be safe to go to sleep. (joke)
Holy Dilemma, Batman! The Joker’s captured Batgirl!
Well, I hope that Heath Ledger and Yvonne Craig are better off now. According to an article on BBC, actress Yvonne Craig has moved on after a fight with breast cancer that had involved her liver. She was 78 years old.
I became a US Army veteran in September of 1982 – so I was an adult when Patrick Dempsey made “Can’t Buy Me Love” in 1987.
Like many others, my wife has been nearly addicted to watching “Grey’s Anatomy” – which stars Patrick Dempsey.
Recently, my wife and I were browsing Netflix Instant Viewing to see what might be available – and “Can’t Buy Me Love” was there, so we took a stroll down memory lane.
I found it very interesting that in CBML, the only classroom scenes with Dempsey’s character (Ronald Miller) are in the science lab – where they are working to memorize the scientific names of the bones of the human skeleton.
Pretty essential training for someone who will (20 years later) be a world-class neurosurgeon. LOL!
Here is my problem. I’ve been a joyful Netflix subscriber almost since day one. I get unlimited streaming, plus one disc at a time. For that I pay a modest price that I’m very happy with, that grants me legal access to watching anything available on Netflix.
However, a couple of years ago Netflix and SyFy couldn’t agree on terms to extend/renew a contract that already existed between them, and SyFy pulled all the content they were already offering through Netflix. Well, I’m what some people call a cord-cutter. I don’t have a satellite service, I don’t subscribe to cable-TV, and I don’t watch pirate video. So when SyFy pulled the plug on Netflix, they pulled the plug on me, and there are several shows on SyFy that I would love to see.
The Wil Wheaton Project
Stargate SG-1 (and all the spin-offs)
To further complicate the issue, because I have been using Netflix so long, I’m pretty well caught up on all the shows from the 70’s to the 00’s that I wanted to see but hadn’t seen every episode of. Well, of the ones that are still on Netflix. We’re currently working our way through the newer edition of “Battlestar Galactica” – but when we finish that, the only things we’ll still be interested in are a few projects that are still ongoing – like the wonderful geek-fest that is “Big Bang Theory”.
