Mindy Newell: Utopia, Dystopia, Death…and Riverdale

30 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Sir John Hurt died a few days ago. One of Great Britain’s finest actors, his rise started with his turn as Robert Rich, a courtier and lawyer in Henry VIII’s court, in Fred Zimmerman’s A Man for All Seasons. The movie, based upon Robert Bolt’s play about the fall of, British Lord Chancellor Thomas More, could be considered a science fiction story as it deals with a perfectly harmonious island society that was nowhere to be found in More’s 16th century – or in the 21st, for that matter.

Sir John, in his long and brilliant career, was no stranger to our brand of cultural pop geekdom. Besides his outstanding turn as the War Doctor on the 50th anniversary special Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor – he recreated the War Doctor on four sets of audio plays for Big Finish; three are already out, »

Remembering 7 Influential Episodes From ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’

25 January 2017 2:58 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

But Mary Richards, the character played by Mary Tyler Moore, who died Wednesday, was an influential feminist icon who helped shape public perceptions about career-minded single women in the 1970s.

“It was never a stand on the soapbox and shout show,” Moore said during an interview with the Archive of American Television in 1997. “It pioneered but it pioneered without self-consciousness.”

Mary Tyler Moore” creators James L. Brooks and Allan Burns famously wanted to have Mary Richards be coming off a divorce at the start of the show. But that was a non-starter for CBS. Instead, Mary’s backstory had her moving from another town in Minnesota to Minneapolis after being dumped by the fiancé who she supported through his medical residency.

Mary Tyler Moore, who died Wednesday at the age of 80, became a feminist icon with her hit 1970 sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

It was a progressive concept that marked a shift in popular and political culture — and would go on to influence a generation of women, including Oprah Winfrey, and inspire them to visualized a world for themselves outside of simply being a wife and homemaker. »
