I like the new season of True Detective a lot. Also keeping up with Billions, as a light entertainment.

Re: the Trump Show Must go On!

The Trump Show MUST Go On!!!

The play's entire script is taken verbatim from the messages as well as Strzok and Page's answers to prolonged questioning in private congressional hearings. The show will also be filmed and released online.


The performance is meant to expose "what was really going on in the FBI in the run-up to the investigation into the alleged Trump/Russia collusion as senior FBI agents became increasingly alarmed that Donald Trump might win the election," according to a press release.

The play's writer, conservative filmmaker Phelim McAleer, described the development as "a victory for artistic freedom and the truth, and a victory over the cowards who tried to stop the play."

"It's very heartening to see that at least one theater in D.C. doesn't practice censorship because it can't handle the truth," McAleer told Fox News Tuesday. "The Reagan Amphitheater management is to be applauded."

In a statement sent to Fox News last week, a Studio Theatre spokesman said the theater canceled its contract because "Media reports have made us aware of undisclosed details about the event."

"Additionally, there have been open and violent threats made against the theater and event participants. Studio has an institutional responsibility to consider the safety of our staff, patrons, community, event organizers and attendees. These concerns must be paramount."

The spokesman said "we have no further comment at this point," when Fox News asked for details of the "violent threats."

However, Swanson addressed the threats on "Fox & Friends" last week, saying, "There was a death threat last week on Twitter to lock the doors and burn down the theater."

"That's unfortunate. Nobody wants to see something like that."

When asked what made her want to participate in the play Swanson said, "I think it's a story that people need to hear."


Strzok was the senior FBI agent working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russian activities during the 2016 presidential campaign. He left the investigation in late July 2017 after the text messages between him and Page were discovered.

In June of last year, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz published a report that revealed dozens of anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and Page.

Horowitz, who at the time was investigating the bureau's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state, found that some bureau officials "appeared to mix political opinion with discussions about the MYE investigation." MYE refers to Midyear Exam, which was the FBI's code word for the Clinton probe.

"I was shocked when I read the texts and their answers in private congressional hearings. Most people have no idea what the people behind the Russia investigation were saying when they thought no one was looking," McAleer said. "People need to know about these texts and how the establishment tried to subvert democracy because they didn't like who the public had chosen."

Page briefly served on Mueller’s team before returning to the FBI's Office of General Counsel in July 2017. After Strzok was removed from the investigation, he was reassigned to the FBI's Human Resources Division.

In July 2016, Strzok opened the FBI’s initial Russia investigation, which was nicknamed "Crossfire Hurricane" inside the bureau.

Page resigned from the bureau in May of 2018, and Strzok eventually was fired in August 2018.

Many of McAleer’s projects have been controversial, including his play "Ferguson," about the 2014 police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Miss. McAleer said he faced "similar censorship" when he put on that play in Los Angeles.

Margaret Carlson: Trump Presidency Like 'The Truman Show'
Posted By Ian Schwartz
On Date October 15, 2018

Bloomberg columnist Margaret Carlson said President Trump plays the "bottom line" president in his version of 'The Truman Show.' Carlson said Monday on MSNBC that nearly everything the president does is on camera and "if the camera light is not on, he's not on."

"Everything is the bottom line. He's the bottom line president in 'The Truman Show.' Because if you have noticed, almost everything he does is on camera," she said.

"He loves talking to the press," Carlson told host Andrea Mitchell. "He's now his own communications director. He's giving the press conference almost every day. And it is 'The Truman Show.' What he does is almost everything he does is on camera. If the camera light is not on, he's not on."

MARGARET CARLSON, BLOOMBERG NEWS: Everything is the bottom line. He's the bottom line president in 'The Truman Show.' Because if you have noticed, almost everything he does is on camera.

Hollyoaks - annoyingly stupid storylines at times, but still riveting viewing. :shock:
Seasonal airing
The Graham Norton Show - funny as always:Kevin Hart and Will Smith were hilarious on last night's show. :lol:
Gotham - the final series, in this current portrayal of the dark knight.. why must it end! :(
The Looming Tower - Powerful portrayal of the actual events leading up to September 11th 2001.. addictive viewing.. a well-written, well-acted, and clever script, so not your usual 9/11 portrayal :shock:

Lost interest/kept crashing during all but Hollyoaks and Gotham, but Killing Eve and Blackish are now/back on my viewing radar.

I've taken to watching Blaze TV, which hosts a whole array of US shows.. Ancient Aliens being a favourite one of them and offering alternative insights to our worshipping of Gods.

Im tempted to give "Girls" a try, as it seems to hold more truth about the relevant demographic than anything else it produces.
There is actually some humanity in there, due to some brilliant casting.

The new Dark Side of the Force dude of the more recent Star Wars episodes was discovered by this show. Which is why a lot of nerdy Star Wars fans hate the new installments. But they're great.

I never have been turned off by women as much as by those in HBO's hypevehicle Euphoria, especially the ones who are "like, really hot". Disgusting soulless sex puppets masquerading as humans by defiling what it means to be human. Disgusting show. Fuck you Drake. Filthy pimp slicking limp dicking rim licking clickbaiting shitdripping nitwit.

Currently on my viewing radar:

Weekday year round airing
Hollyoaks - I'll have to catch up on this weeks last 2/3 episodes over this weekend, as I missed them due to a waning interest in TV.. due to mind being occupied with thought.
Ancient Aliens - a thought-provoking series, offering alternative insights to our worshipping of Gods and to the development of all things human.

Seasonal airing
Celebrities Go Dating - reality TV at its funniest.. but not muggiest, like Geordie Shore.. otherwise I wouldn't be watching it. lol
