    Well, I guess that's it...

    Castle Cancelled By ABC – No Season 9

    May 12, 2016

    ABC has cancelled Castle at the last – there wont be a Season 9 of the procedural.

    Despite nearing a deal for Season 9 without leading lady Stana Katic, the network has instead opted to end the series, with the upcoming May 16 finale now representing the series finale.


    Guess this frees Fillion up for a Firefly reboot.

    After Beckett(whatever her real name is) didn't get re-signed for whatever reason, the show was done.

    You're right though...maybe they can do something like Firefly since it'd be impossible to re-create the show.

    Stana Katic ( ) and yeah, I agree. Going to miss the red head daughter, Molly Quinn, and the new British chick, Toks Olagundoye, too.

    Honestly, I always thought the show was pretty well cast. Fillion and Katic did great in the lead roles. The two other detectives, John Huertas and Seamus Dever, were also a great pair. And the Firefly reunion cameos were always fun. The plot lines weren't always great but the show was reliably entertaining with plenty of wit.

    Hard to believe the show is in its 8th season. I guess that's a pretty darn good run though when you consider shows like the modern Star Treks (except Enterprise) all ran for 7 seasons.

    Reboot? Not sure if want... Especially with as unhinged as Whedon has become over the election.

    Fox Will Move Forward With Firefly Reboot - On One Condition

    February 9, 2017

    Ever since Firefly ended, and Serenity graced theaters, sci-fi fans have been begging for more of the brown coats.

    The series only lasted for one year on Fox, but it is widely regarded as one of the best sci-fi shows in history. The Joss Whedon creation - starring Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk - is still gaining momentum and fans to this day.

    The folks at Fox often ask if they would ever be willing to make a reboot of Firefly, or at least revisit the original with some more episodes. With X-Files, Prison Break, and 24 all getting new shows, is it really out of the question?

    According to Fox President Of Entertainment David Madden, the option for more Firefly is on the table. There's only one condition:

    Joss Whedon has to be on board if it's going to get made.

    It's because of Whedon that the show became the landmark that it was, and Fox doesn't want to get involved without him. They know it could be a hit, but they aren't willing to drop the show's identity.

    Madden was sure enough about his decision to mention that he wouldn't even consider the possibility without Whedon's involvement.

    So, if you're hoping for more Firefly, look to Joss Whedon. It seems to be in his hands now.


    Valid points about all the other shows getting relaunched. And Fox did do pretty good with the X-Files return...

    I just found out Christina Hendricks is in my AO, more specifically the Florence/NKY area, filming The Strangers 2.

    I've been in Florence a few times the last couple days. Haven't seen her or her two best assets...

    Well, we all know how much Joss Whedon hates Trump and proclaims to be a proud feminist.

    Turns out he's just another Hollyweird hypocrite... No surprise there.


    Joss Whedon Is a ‘Hypocrite Preaching Feminist Ideals,’ Ex-Wife Kai Cole Says

    “He used his relationship with me as a shield … so no one would question his relationships with other women or scrutinize his writing as anything other than feminist,” she writes

    August 20, 2017

    I’ve been asked some questions by the press recently about my divorce from Joss Whedon, to whom I was married for 16 years. There is misinformation out there and I feel the best way to clear up the situation is to tell my truth. Let me begin by saying I am a very private person and the act of writing this is antithetical to who I am and everything I stand for. Yet, at the same time, I feel compelled to go on the record and clear up some misperceptions. I don’t think it is fair to me or other women to remain silent any longer.

    I met Joss in 1991. I was driving across the country from Massachusetts on a whim, and met him when I was passing through Los Angeles. We fell in love and I moved to L.A. so we could be together.

    I was with him when his “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” script was adapted, and the resulting movie released. It was painful to see how his vision was interpreted by the production team and on our honeymoon to England in 1995, I urged him to figure out how to turn it into a TV show. He didn’t want to work in television anymore, following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, but I convinced him it was the fastest way to get the experience he needed, so he could direct his own films someday. I had no idea, in that lovely garden in Bath, that it would change everything.

    There were times in our relationship that I was uncomfortable with the attention Joss paid other women. He always had a lot of female friends, but he told me it was because his mother raised him as a feminist, so he just liked women better. He said he admired and respected females, he didn’t lust after them. I believed him and trusted him. On the set of “Buffy,” Joss decided to have his first secret affair.

    Fifteen years later, when he was done with our marriage and finally ready to tell the truth, he wrote me, “When I was running ‘Buffy,’ I was surrounded by beautiful, needy, aggressive young women. It felt like I had a disease, like something from a Greek myth. Suddenly I am a powerful producer and the world is laid out at my feet and I can’t touch it.” But he did touch it. He said he understood, “I would have to lie — or conceal some part of the truth — for the rest of my life,” but he did it anyway, hoping that first affair, “would be ENOUGH, that THEN we could move on and outlast it.”

    Joss admitted that for the next decade and a half, he hid multiple affairs and a number of inappropriate emotional ones that he had with his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends, while he stayed married to me. He wrote me a letter when our marriage was falling apart, but I still didn’t know the whole truth, and said, “I’ve never loved anyone or wanted to be with anyone in any real or long-term way except for you ever. And I love our life. I love how you are, how we are, who you are and what we’ve done both separately and together, how much fun we have…” He wanted it all; he didn’t want to choose, so he accepted the duality as a part of his life.

    Then later, after he confessed everything, he told me, “I let myself love you. I stopped worrying about the contradiction. As a guilty man I knew the only way to hide was to act as though I were righteous. And as a husband, I wanted to be with you like we had been. I lived two lives.” When he walked out of our marriage, and was trying to make “things seem less bewildering” to help me understand how he could have lied to me for so long, he said, “In many ways I was the HEIGHT of normal, in this culture. We’re taught to be providers and companions and at the same time, to conquer and acquire — specifically sexually — and I was pulling off both!”

    Despite understanding, on some level, that what he was doing was wrong, he never conceded the hypocrisy of being out in the world preaching feminist ideals, while at the same time, taking away my right to make choices for my life and my body based on the truth. He deceived me for 15 years, so he could have everything he wanted. I believed, everyone believed, that he was one of the good guys, committed to fighting for women’s rights, committed to our marriage, and to the women he worked with. But I now see how he used his relationship with me as a shield, both during and after our marriage, so no one would question his relationships with other women or scrutinize his writing as anything other than feminist.

    I thought we were a couple, a team. I was a powerful influence on the career choices Joss made during the 20 years we were together (we lived together for four years before marrying). I kept him grounded, and helped him find the quickest way to the success he so deeply craved. I loved him. And in return, he lied to me. A lot. He said, after he left, he understood: “It’s not just like I killed you, but that I’d done it subtly, over years. That I’d been poisoning you. Chipping away at you.” He made me doubt my own instincts and watched me move further away from my personal values and social mores, trying to connect with him, never telling me it was impossible. By the time he finally confessed the truth, 15 years after his first affair on the set of “Buffy,” I was broken. My brain could not fit my experience of our life together, through the new lens of his deceit.

    My entire reality changed overnight, and I went from being a strong, confident woman, to a confused, frightened mess. I was eventually diagnosed with Complex PTSD and for the last five years, I have worked hard to make sense of everything that happened and find my balance again. It has not been easy, because even though in my personal life I have been completely open about what happened, publicly people only know his superficial presentation of us: him as the lovable geek-feminist and me in the background, as his wife and supporter.

    We’re finally divorced; I’m doing architecture again, and slowly getting my life and self-esteem back.

    Until recently, Joss was still letting the illusion of our marriage stay intact. Now that it is finally public, I want to let women know that he is not who he pretends to be. I want the people who worship him to know he is human, and the organizations giving him awards for his feminist work, to think twice in the future about honoring a man who does not practice what he preaches. But no matter what happens, or how people interpret this statement, I no longer have to carry the burden of Joss’ long-term deceit and confessions. I am free.

    Editor’s Note: A spokesperson for Joss Whedon provided the following response, “While this account includes inaccuracies and misrepresentations which can be harmful to their family, Joss is not commenting, out of concern for his children and out of respect for his ex-wife.”



    Joss Whedon Fan Site Shuts Down After Ex-Wife’s Explosive Essay

    Whedonesque site says 15 years “is a long time and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge… but now it’s time to say goodbye”

    August 21, 2017

    The Joss Whedon fan site Whedonesque is shutting down, it announced on Monday morning.

    The closure comes after Whedon’s ex-wife, Kai Cole, wrote a explosive guest blog on TheWrap, calling the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator a “hypocrite preaching feminist ideals.”

    “So farewell then, 15 years is a long time and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge. But now it’s time to say goodbye. No more threads after this one, we’re closing down,” the message on the fan site reads. “The site will at some stage become a read only site.”

    One comment on the thread asked, “This is about THAT piece?” as others discussed the recent column posted by TheWrap on Sunday, in which Cole speaks about her relationship with the filmmaker since 1991, including his various affairs.

    “So sad – the site closing, and of course the news of Joss and Kai’s relationship,” wrote one user. “I do believe that both Joss and Kai should be allowed to be human without being demonized.”

    It is not clear whether the fan site is shutting down in response to the column. TheWrap reached out to Whedonesque for comment.

    In her guest column for TheWrap, Cole opened by saying: “I’ve been asked some questions by the press recently about my divorce from Joss Whedon, to whom I was married for 16 years. There is misinformation out there and I feel the best way to clear up the situation is to tell my truth.”

    Is this a surprise to anyone?

    Woman seek wealth and power, men seek youth and beauty.

    When a young beautiful woman throws themselves at a wealthy and powerful man...this is what you get.

    Both sexes are genetically programmed to behave this way, you can no more change it than you can command the sun not to rise.

    Historically, 80% of all women have produced offspring but 60% of males have not. It's very easy to explain...80% of the women are chasing 20% of the men. The remaining 20% of woman settle for another 20% of men. The rest of the men are out of luck.

    This behavior is not new, nor will it ever end. This is why men are creative. We, as men, work and create things to become wealthy and or powerful. Women simply seek to find the best mate they can.

    All those beta male SJWs are simply doing the feminist bullshit to make themselves appealing to females. If they get enough wealth and power, the facade drops and they run trains on as many women as they can fit into their schedule.

    Was in Hallmark earlier today to get this year's Star Trek Christmas ornament. No surprise it's the USS Discovery. But, I've gotten every single one since 1991 so, naturally, I've got to get this one too.

    While there I found that this year Hallmark also released a Serenity ornament! Unfortunately it was sold out but, fortunately, it is still available online!

    So figured I'd give the Firefly fans a heads up.
