The name Connie Simpson doesn’t ring any instant bells — yet — but the woman who bears it is a lot more high-profile than her demeanor would let on.
Known as “Nanny Connie” to her clients, the 30-plus-year childcare veteran from Mobile, Alabama, has worked with celebrity parents like John Krasinksi, Emily Blunt, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.
“’s life greatest equalizer,” Biel, 35, says in a video for Simpson’s new Jbtp (“Just Be The Parent”) media campaign. “Doesn’t matter where you’re from, how much you make, what you do … you are grounded to every other parent on this planet. »

Variety more 'sequels we don't need!' news. Boss Baby is getting one for 2021. Sigh. I actually thought that movie was unexpectedly good but most movies don't actually need sequels. Stop trying to make movies into big TV shows with multiple episodes! TV is great but Movies are not TV!
I Wouldn't Normally Link This But. »

The reception to Marvel’s Netflix shows has varied considerably from series to series - but something almost everyone agrees on is that Rosario Dawson’s character, Claire Temple, has been a highlight of them all. Like a Netflix Agent Coulson, it seems clear she’ll serve as the character who ultimately unites the team during the crossover series, The Defenders.
But it's possible her role is destined to be even more substantial than that. The ending of Iron Fist in particular hints that Claire may take the step Coulson never did and join the ranks of the (occasionally) costumed adventurers. We can't help but wonder: is she »

Iron Fist is currently veering between being a soap opera boardroom drama and a generic Netflix Marvel action series...
These viewing notes contain spoilers.
Iron Fist, the fourth and final member of the Defenders, has finally made his debut. As with previous Netflix series, we’ll be reviewing an episode a day highlighting the characters, reference points and easter eggs we spotted. Feel free to read along as you watch too, but please don’t spoil future episodes for anyone in the comments!
Ouch. Just when I thought Iron Fist had turned a corner, the cold open - sexy women pitching synthetic heroin to potential buyers - bordered on cringeworthy. After that things got a little better, but the show is veering »
Iron Fist has finally been released, and if I can get away with it today I will attempt to give Spoiler-free'ish updates throughout the day! I have been waiting for this for awhile, and while we have seen nothing but negative reviews, it is up to us, the readers, for the final decision!
Episode 01 + 02
The first episode has a very "Bruce Wayne returns" type of feel to it, as Danny Rand shows back up after being missing and presumed dead for most of his life, after training in a mystical place that "can't be reached from here." The Meachums kids have taken over the company after their father's death from cancer, but it should actually be Danny's company. Rand does not seem to want money, just some answers. He attempts to go to a Dojo to train, which doesn't work as planned. At the end we get a surprise as someone is still alive. »

Spare a thought for Claire Temple. Ever since Daredevil made a beeline for Netflix two whole years ago, Rosario Dawson’s kind-hearted nurse has patched up the Man Without Fear and Mike Colter’s Hero for Hire, not to mention giving some much-needed advice to the prickly Jessica Jones.
But on March 17th, the final Defender, Iron Fist, will call upon Claire Temple for medical aid, and a new clip from IGN sheds light on the first encounter between Temple and Danny Rand’s hero-in-training. Is Marvel’s steadfast supporting player slowly beginning to complete her transition to Night Nurse? It’s the one rumor that continues to do the rounds online, but until we hear official confirmation one way or another, you can get a better sense of Claire and Danny’s dynamic up above.
