Twenty-five years ago, The Big Lebowski blew into theaters like a tumbleweed on an empty street.
Domestic audiences barely showed up, with the comedic detective tale only earning $18 million. Audiences gave it a B CinemaScore. Critics sniffed that it wasnt as good as Joel and Ethan Coens last release, the Oscar-winning Fargo.
But that was just, like, their opinion, man. ...

Stanley Tucci's adventures in Italy are officially finito. At least for now.
During his Dec. 14 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the beloved actor revealed that his Emmy Award-winning food and travel docuseries, Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, has been put on the chopping block.
"Unfortunately, CNN has canceled all of their original programming. So hopefully we'll end up on another streamer, networkwe don't know," Tucci told Fallon. "But yes, I have plans to do season 3 and more."
Fallon joked, "So Searching for Italy is searching for a new network," to which Tucci responded, "It's not as appetizing."
It's going to be a complete reboot to be produced and aired on the CW network.

An interesting and fun interview.
It will not be Bablyon6, but rather, a complete reimagining of Babylon5, brought to you by the original creator J Michael Straczynski.
IMHO, B5 was the only TV show to threaten Star Trek (in its various forms) for the very top position of greatest Sci-Fi franchise.

In 2018, Diplomats Warned of Risky Coronavirus Experiments in a Wuhan Lab. No One Listened.
... By April, U.S. officials at the NSC and the State Department had begun to compile circumstantial evidence that the WIV lab, rather than the seafood market, was actually the source of the virus. The former explanation for the outbreak was entirely plausible, they felt, whereas the latter would be an extreme coincidence. But the officials couldnt say that out loud because there wasnt firm proof either way. And if the U.S. government accused China of lying about the outbreak without firm evidence, Beijing would surely escalate tensions even more, which meant that Americans might not get the medical supplies that were desperately needed to combat the rapid spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the United States...
... What they were worried about was something called gain-of-function research, in which the virulence or transmissibility of dangerous pathogens is deliberately increased...
... This pattern of deception and obfuscation, combined with the new revelations about how Chinese labs were handling dangerous coronaviruses in ways their Western counterparts didnt know about, led some U.S. officials to become increasingly convinced that Chinese authorities were manipulating scientific information to fit their narrative. But there was so little transparency, it was impossible for the U.S. government to prove, one way or the other. If there was a smoking gun, the CCP [Communist Party of China] buried it along with anyone who would dare speak up about it, one U.S. official told me. Well probably never be able to prove it one way or the other, which was Beijings goal all along. ...
An article that I found quite sad.
Personally, I loved Firefly, Dollhouse, Avengers, and more from Whedon.
So sorry to see he's a jerk. Alas, much of this has been known for a while.
(Another reason I'm posting this is that he destroyed Justice League, and I'm still pissed about that. I think when Mr. Whedon sees the four-hour JL miniseries that Zack Snyder is creating for HBO, he will be rightfully humiliated!)
