Charmed Reboot Ruining Another Classic

I don’t know about you but I absolutely loved the original Charmed, I still watch the episodes on Netflix and although I have seen every one of them at least 25 times, I still watch them and still love the show. You can imagine how excited I was to hear that they are bringing the show back, that is until I gathered a bit more information on the Charmed Reboot. I for one will not be watching and will not encourage anyone else to watch either, they have taken a classic with a huge fan base and like so many other attempts to remake shows/movies and to create reboots, this one will likely not be any exception. They have made a reboot of Little Orphan Annie and what a flop, not only was it a flop but many people were outraged because apparently orphan Annie suddenly woke up an African American! James Bond, a very well known, well loved character has also morphed into an African American! It isn’t about the fact that these timeless characters were shown in reboots as African Americans overnight, it’s that there is such a fear of these constant complainers raising a ruckus every time that anything is made and there isn’t a person of color in it, a transvestite, homosexual or morbidly obese actor in them! Even some African American’s are disgusted by these things, it’s ridiculous and insulting to throw in characters just for fear of those groups that comb through every last scrap of movies and television, in order to start some kind of drama about someone or other being discriminated against!

Furthermore, a television show that turns out to be a smashing success isn’t solely because of the script, the main reason that a show is a hit with viewers and will go on for many seasons to come is simply getting the right cast of characters. A cast that mesh, one that viewers are familiar with for the most part and actors that people already love, can you imagine FRIENDS with an entirely different group of people? Or SEINFELD with a different cast of actors? I can almost guarantee that they would have been flops if they had different casts. I understand that with a reboot it’s often many years after the series has wrapped but Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty, and Rose McGowan are what made Charmed great. To totally disregard the original actresses that made the show a hit is clueless and wrong. Some “genius” must have been desperate to make a show and figured he’d just take a classic, make some moronic tweaks and throw it on television just to fill space in the lineup!

Someone should start a petition because it offends that these actresses, that are very well known none the less, are not so much as an after thought when it came to this Charmed reboot, what because they are older than they were when they starred in the show they are no longer of value? Older (and not even OLD) actresses are disregarded like yesterdays trash? They can’t remember how to act, they won’t run around with their asses hanging out so they are disposable? I am thoroughly disgusted and appalled by this nonsense, it sends the message that an actor/actress is washed up after they turn 40, that even though they MADE the series a success and it was only because of them, when they are older it’s a slap in the face that their show will be rebooted and they are not the stars and have no part in it.

Finally, going back to reboots that seem as if they take place in another universe, where the main stars turn into different colors overnight, I have read that one of the sisters will be a lesbian!  Do you remember any of the  original characters being gay? You know, instead of trying to cater to every stinking group of people out there and sullying up the show as a result, they might want to try catering to viewers, to the millions of die hard Charmed fans. Mark Pedowitz (CW President) really needs to remove his lips from the rear ends of certain groups and try instead to apply them to the arses of would be viewers and benefit from the already established, loyal original Charmed viewers.

It isn’t like all of us just tune into cable for nothing, God knows we aren’t getting free rides and we pay through the teeth for cable service, it’s pretty pathetic that we pay so much and there’s so little decent television to watch but we can’t really blame the cable providers for that. However, we can blame people like Mark Pedowitz not only for garbage tv fare on CW, but for allowing such an iconic series like Charmed to be completely ruined, which also takes away from the original.Try bringing Charmed back in all of it’s former glory, it would have made more sense to bring the real Charmed actresses back, even as a way to introduce the next generation and slowly integrate the “next generation characters” into the show. The fans of the series that have been a fan from day one know that yes, there were three sisters and later a half sister, not one of which was African American. We know the characters as well as the actresses that played them and we know that none of them were homosexuals either! We know each ones abilities that could logically be passed on to their offspring and I guess it could be possible that other new abilities could be developed, but to totally change everything insulting viewers because the entire premise is illogical and pathetic. I know that I, for one, will not be tuning in.

Harry & Meghan A Royal Romance The Movie Review

You know sometimes I think that television networks assume that all viewers are ignorant, that they cannot “read between the lines” when watching a movie that is based in truth. There was a load of hype before the movie actually aired, leading viewers to believe that it could rival  Everafter  (minus the beautiful Drew Barrymore of course). Some nestled in with their popcorn, all cuddled up and overtaken by anticipation, yes, yes, that may be quite an exaggeration but some people were indeed curious for the most part about how on earth Prince Harry could possibly have become interested in Meghan Markle, even in passing.

What I quickly gathered as the movie rolled on, and on, and on (oops I almost fell asleep thinking about it) was that on Harry and Meghan’s 2nd date, after he swept her away to Africa, she felt that she knew him well enough to hop right into bed with him. The movie showed them speaking on the phone shortly after they met and she had been reading all about the Prince. The scene where Meghan rushed to the airport to stop his flight was ridiculous, even by Hollywood standards, stalkerish, desperate and psychotic especially after she had just went up one side of him and down the other for having the audacity to have tried to protect her from reporters and what he called trolls! Since the pair dated and married in under two years, it was interesting to have the movie try to make viewers believe that Meghan was all about being independent and standing on her own two feet, appearing to want to continue working and making her own way, suddenly turning on a dime she wanted the whole “experience” and quite her job. Finally, the single most disgusting, disappointing part of the entire Royal B.S. er, Romance movie was that as too often happens in society, the emphasis on race and trolls did in what shred, and I do mean shred of interest a viewer may have had.

What I learned from watching Harry & Meghan A Royal Romance is that Meghan studied Prince Harry, played the role of her lifetime and reached her goal. That Meghan is bi-racial but seems able to only relate to the African American in her whenever there is a cause or chance to garner attention from it. Crystal clear from the start of the movie, as if we didn’t know this already, is that like a crazed reality star Markle is over the top desperate for attention and perhaps for Harry that was the bigger selling point, she seems to crave media attention when it shows her in a light that she desires to be shown in but heaven forbid the media states an ugly truth. If you haven’t guessed already, the movie stinks terribly, and while Murray Fraser the actor playing Prince Harry is his lookalike, the actress portraying Meghan Markle, Parisa Fitz-Henley is a beautiful woman but that’s just the problem with casting her in the role of Markle, she doesn’t even resemble Markle.

Celebrities And Freedom Of Speech?

Here we go again, further proof that our right to freedom of speech is being snuffed out! Alec Baldwin is not one of my favorite people, but because he lashed out and said something that offended people, he catches hell for it and is forced to apologize for his words, his feelings

A British reporter made the claim that Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria was tweeting about wedding presents and television appearances, during James Gandolifini’s funeral, on Thursday. This set Alec off and he allegedly tweeted some threatening things in reference to George Stark, one tweet said that Alec would put his foot up Stark’s “f’ ing”  ass but that he’d dig it too much! Alec also called him a toxic, little queen in a tweet that said that Alec would find Stark, and “f” him up!

Brutal it may be, but however warped or different someones opinions or feelings are, they are still entitled to them no matter what. As long as someone isn’t acting on their hate, anger or dislike, then the truth is that these are still words, no matter how ugly they might be. Threats are a horse of a different color though, you can’t go around threatening people, that’s not okay, and is often a precursor to violence. 

People out there say mean, hateful and ugly things each and every day, it’s an awful fact of life, you can’t stop them, you can’t change people. You’ll never see the day when everyone agrees on everything, people are all different, opinions are different, feelings are different, and people were raised differently. That being said, some will voice their opinions, some will hide them for fear that they differ from the majority, or minority, and some will pretend that they feel the same as those in the crowd that they happen to be part of, that particular day! You can say that if you don’t have anything nice to say about someone, then say nothing, or you can say that sticks and stones will break bones, but names will never hurt you, but that doesn’t mean that anyone will comply.

The good, the bad, and the ugly, opinions are all different, about everything, not just race, homosexuality and religion. As long as no one is hurting someone with violence, you can’t stop a person from saying what they feel, otherwise you’re suppressing their right to freedom of speech. It infuriates me that out there, every day someone is name calling or making a statement that someone else doesn’t agree with, and that’s just fine. However, you take a celebrity and put them in a situation where the press is around them all the time, they are caught saying something when they are mad, or simply answering a reporters question with honesty, and the next thing they know, it’s on the six o’clock news! They are put through hell as a result of saying anything just because they are in the public eye! 

Fans are the ones who make these people celebrities, but I think that they forget that they are people too. They aren’t the personalities that they pretend to be in movies and on television, they have their own feelings and opinions about everything, just like you and me. Some are fans, until they hear about some scandal that’s been started by something they said or did, it’s like people want them to be some pretend character they’ve seen them play in movies! When they see a darker side……. and by that I mean…. when they realize that the celebs opinions differ from their own, all of a sudden they crucify them! Paula Dean is a sad example of that, she answered questions truthfully, owned up that she used the “N” word, and her so called fans turned on her in the blink of an eye! Rather than praise the fact that she was honest, especially on such a touchy subject, no people would rather jump on her and see her sink as a result of her not lying!

We’ve all got problems, we’ve all seen our share of tragedy in this life, there’s so many more important things to raise a ruckus about. Look at those poor children going to St. Jude’s for treatment of all types of cancer, suffering beyond belief. Imagine what their parents are going through having a child that is terminally ill, watching that child’s brave fight, each and every day. It makes you wonder why there’s such hell raised over what someone said in anger, what they said years ago,what was said in honesty, or why a celebrity going on a rant gets so much attention! Every one of us has been in a situation where our choice of words could have been much better, we’ve all been pee-d off about something and said things in anger that we shouldn’t have. Maybe we should stop looking for hidden meanings in what someone says, or better yet, maybe we shouldn’t keep feeding it media attention so that a flicker turns into a bonfire!

Cesspool Society!Death Of Religion!Homosexuality!

This Paula Dean situation has me so awfully disgusted with the state of things in this country, I can’t even begin to tell you! My grandfather always said that the only thing that will fix this country is another civil war, I never understood why he was so sure that such a strong action would ever even be needed, until now! There is zero privacy left for any of us, even our own government spies on us, we’re in danger of losing our right to bear arms, and there is no such thing of freedom of speech. Sad that our own citizens are the ones that have robbed the rest of us, that, along with our freedom of religion! They went so far as to disallow prayer in schools!

Back in the 40s, 50s, and 60s life was totally different, people had some religion, currently most children don’t know God and have never heard of the ten commandments, parents don’t make it a priority! Yes, back in the day, most teens went to the drive in rather than go out partying all the time, getting slop drunk and having sex with anyone they could find. Girl’s weren’t encouraged to get pregnant, safe sex wasn’t an issue because they were taught abstinence instead. Freedom of speech was a reality and those gays that were around, they kept their preferences to themselves, rather than flaunt their sex lives. Can you imagine them having the audacity to have ever pushed for the rights given to married men and women, back then?

In those days many people were able to go to bed, without stressing about whether or not they locked all of their doors and windows! Crime wasn’t nearly as bad as it’s become, but what do you expect in a world that’s become far worse than Sodom and Gomorrah? Step back and look at it 100 percent unbiased, without feelings and just letting your logic lead. Don’t let the fact that you might have a gay friend or relative, influence you. Now, think of the Bible, where in that book did you ever see it written that a couple of the same sex should be married? Where does it say that God finds that acceptable? Before you spend a year trying to look, I’ll tell you, you will not find either in the Bible anywhere! Once again, people want to change the word of God, to say what they want, attempting to justify their behavior, their actions, their lust, their sins. In the not so far future, many of us will rue the day that churches will cave in and allow gay marriages, pre marital sex and Heaven forbid, suppressing our right to freedom of speech!

Now I truly believe that God is all loving, that if we follow his word, we will indeed be rewarded. However, the Bible lets us know that while he is a loving God, he will not allow sinners to be rewarded, or for the good books words to be twisted, warped and downright contradicted! It may be a drastic example, but think of a torturing, thieving, abusive brute, who slaughtered twenty people and nineteen of them were small, innocent children. Can you imagine him standing at the gates of Heaven saying that nowhere in the Bible did it say that one couldn’t slaughter 1 adult and 19 children? That those words weren’t written there? How about a gay man standing there, saying that the good book stated that a man shall not lay with another man, and that he and his partner only stood? Or, the same telling God what the book that God wrote did and did not say? How if it was a sin, then why did so many others in the world, also condone it and push for their equality? Huh, there will be endless others in line behind him, who will have to turn back and take a 1 way ride into hell!

Please understand, a good Christian shouldn’t hate or abuse homosexuals, but when it is condoned by a person, it then becomes their sin as well. By agreeing that they should have all of these different rights that are expressly afforded to normal married men and women, well that is the same as you yourself being gay! There’s something else you can forever search the Bible for, and wont find, nowhere does it say that you can be a homosexual, you should go out into the streets pissing and whining about not having rights that a man and woman have, or that you should publicly speak about your sexual likes & dislikes, preferences, sexual positions, etc. Take a lesson from normal heterosexuals, keep such things private! That should be common sense, at the very least, as well as common courtesy!


Mermaids The New Evidence Leaves Even More Questions

Animal Planet has always been my favorite network, hands down, and with the Mermaids installments, it’s proved that it remains a force to be reckoned with. Rarely have I seen a topic that has positively, mesmerized viewers, like the Mermaids topic, sadly, other networks will probably attempt to jump on the bandwagon, and come up with some lame show or other.

Okay, so as for the Mermaids the new evidence show, did it look to anyone else like the video the American tourists taped of the mermaid on the rock, like the mermaid had hair? It certainly seemed like it, but as we have already established, they do not have hair, I’m assuming that hair would only serve to cause drag in the water. As for the video shot during the rescue exercise, clearly that was not a seal, so someone tell me, why on earth does the Government continue to deny and to cover up such things? Are Mermaids a threat to national security? I still say that it is because they realize that most of the people in the world would have a problem with these creatures being killed off, like so many other species have been, and are being.

So many questions….. how is it that these creatures know to avoid us? They are intelligent enough to develop weapons to hunt fish, but does it end there? Do they believe in a higher power, or do they wonder how it is that they came to be? The first show stated, when they explained the aquatic ape theory, that when our ancestors began eating food from the sea, it accelerated brain function, their intelligence, that being said, wouldn’t these creatures be more intelligent than us? Did you ever wonder why it is, that dolphins are friendly with humans? And the fact that they help catch fish in certain countries, being intelligent enough to remain calm when the nets cover them? Interesting. Remember the woman who was diving in the ocean among the whales? Suddenly the whale, as if playing, pulled her by the leg deep down into the water until she thought that she was going to drown. As if sensing that she was in trouble, the whale shot her up to the waters surface!

Animal Planet really outdid themselves with these shows, capturing the attention of all of us. I fear that now though, there are some out there that will try to be big shots and go in search of these creatures. Obviously they have existed, pretty much from the start, and have not wanted to be found, and with good reason. I agree that we cannot co exist with any new species, men are too quick to want to kill that which they cannot understand. Of course, I do believe that the Government knows a hell of a lot more than they pretend to, if they had a Mermaid in captivity for any length of time, as reported on the first show, you know damned well that when it died, they dissected it, gathered all of the information one could possibly gather. Still, in typical political fashion, they deny, deny, deny, and claim that no such creature exists!

I would love to know more, as I’m sure all of you would, but not at the expense of killing off another, entire, type of species, that may or may not be relatives to mankind. The way the Oriental people slaughter whales, I wouldn’t be surprised if they too, now go out and hunt these poor creatures down. They are safer wherever it is they are, and must be pretty damned smart to know to avoid humans. It’s heartbreaking that they cannot avoid their weapons though, that’s probably the reason that the government doesn’t come clean, because they don’t want to stop the testing that’s killing so much marine life, they want to continue making their weapons of mass destruction, at all costs.


Mermaids The New Evidence

Isn’t it something that after all of the information that has come out, pertaining to the new species (Mermaids), the Government still continues to allow the sonar testing, thereby killing ungodly numbers of marine life, as well as, who knows how many yet undiscovered species! Why? Why would the Government cover up such an incredible find? It can’t be religion, because religion can co exist with this type of discovery. They cannot pose a threat to us, in any way, quite the opposite I fear. I can only guess that because the species are so closely related to us, it’s like they are killing our own kind.

History doesn’t lie, for as long as there has been Government and military, there have also been cover ups from the start. I’m sure there are still skeptics out there, but the video shown last night speaks for itself, sure there are scams out there, more of them than factual evidence, but you also have to ask, why would legitimate men come forward with it, exposing themselves to ridicule from their peers? Why bother at all?

I personally believe that it would be ignorant not to believe that there are new species out there yet to be discovered, especially in the oceans of the world. face it, men have intruded on nearly every last inch of this planets land, but there are a vast number of places deep in the ocean that we never have been able to explore. I think it’s a huge mistake to drill in the seas, haven’t we trashed this planet enough already? So many animals have become extinct through no fault of their own, simply because men thought it macho to kill them, and thanks to over population, they have no habitats left of their own, the same will happen to these Mermaids, if there are even enough left to procreate, that is!

It seems that the military testing will continue, no matter what the price is, and any hope at all of preserving these elusive, mysterious creatures, will be gone forever. I think the testing should have stopped the first time that it killed so many whales, dolphins and other marine life, but as we’ve all seen, they have continued it. Why is it not okay to abuse and kill cats and dogs and other land animals, yet it is perfectly acceptable to wipe out entire families of marine life? And what horrible, painful deaths all of those whales, dolphins and mermaids died! Once again, man has slaughtered innocent life, and for what? To test some new weapon? Weapons that I’m sure, in the scheme of things wont help anyway. What is that saying about all of the countries standing in puddles of gasoline, each with their own matches?

The cost of these tests is simply not worth it, and the saddest part of all is that it shouldn’t be stopped just because of these mermaids, it should be stopped because of the countless lives in total, that the testing has resulted in being lost! I truly hope that after all of this attention, people ban together and demand that changes be made, demand a stop to the sonar testing, and demand that the drilling cease, or at the very least, keep it to a bare minimum!


Thank You To All Anti Reality Petitioners!

I want to say thank you, to all of you out there, who have started or signed a petition, especially if it pertained to television programming. There are far too few viewers who care enough to try and put a stop to some of the reality trash that’s now being aired on television. There was another reality show about a man and all of the women he’d had kids with, slated to air, until thankfully, a petition was circulated and signed by enough people to make the network pull the stupid show! I truly believe that there are many shows that need to be taken off the air, starting with the reality trash kings themselves, the Kardashians.

It infuriates me that a show will be called a “smash hit”, when they reach that conclusion simply from the Nielsen viewer households, which make up an entire 1% of all viewing households! It’s ludicrous when the rest of us viewers, pay for our cable services, only to be bombarded with reality garbage, or as I like to call it, dumpster fare. Get rid of the trash reality shows, that’s all, keep the ones that really are tolerable to watch, and get rid of the rest, or will it take umpteen more petitions, to see results?

Who on earth would want their children to watch crap like Honey Boo Boo? A family of overweight, self proclaimed Hillbillies with no manners, seemingly uneducated, bidding on food at discount prices? Or watch a family of nobodies, famous for being nobodies, which one made a sex tape to have her mommy dearest sell to the highest bidder, that was their big claim to fame! The list is endless of stupid reality shows, someone needs to make one big petition, and list the countless dumpster fare on it, all at once, to put a stop to it and take back our television fare.

There is nothing interesting or educational about most of the reality shows on, watching a posse of Jersey Shore wannabes, Iranians getting slop drunk and flaunting their wealth, or a housewife reject who cant sing, wearing her wigs to try and make sales, no thanks. Not only have we had these people taking up time on a reality show, but the next thing you know,they’re given a talk show to boot! Some of these networks are not only greedy, they’re moronic and need to stop the madness! We have enough trouble in this society with teenage pregnancy, drunkenness,you name it, but we don’t need it glamorized too!
