Special Mention: The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Directed by Jim Sharman
Screenplay by Richard O’Brien and Jim Sharman
For the unfamiliar, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the film adaptation of a popular musical stage production composed and written by Richard O’Brien, a struggling actor at the time who was best known for his performances in such musicals as Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar. For O’Brien, The Rocky Horror Picture Show was an homage to drive-in double features and science fiction B-movies of the fifties, and ironically, the film itself went on to become the ultimate midnight movie. To this day, screenings held in and around its anniversary as well as on Halloween sell out. It has never been pulled by 20th Century Fox from its original 1975 release, and it continues to play in cinemas four decades after its premiere, making it the longest-running theatrical release in film history. »

Pre-credit sequence. We begin at Nagarote, as I try to remember where we left off and what the names of the tribes were. Shirin is sad to have been blindsided and to have lost Max. "I don't know that I can trust you," Carolyn tells Shirin, further shunting her aside. Shirin protests that Max made her isolate herself, but Carolyn is being rough, making it clear that she wants no part of the newly solitary Shirin. "Is anybody left in this game willing to play with me?" Shirin ponders, wondering if this is a reflection on her. Hali levels with Shirin and tells her that Max had been annoying and that people felt like she was annoying as well. Ouch. This hits home for Shirin, who grew up rich, but not popular. So sad. I guess. Kinda. "I'm trying to do now what I was incapable of doing back then, »

Monday’s The Originals (The CW, 8/7c) is taking viewers back — way back — to World War I to introduce another piece of the increasingly complicated puzzle that is Marcel Gerard.
“The episode is really about seeing Marcel as a present-day leader, then getting to understand how he became that way through flashbacks,” Charles Michael Davis explains to TVLine.
Those flashbacks — filmed “about two or three miles down the road [from The Originals‘ set] on a hill at a horse ranch” — come courtesy of werewolf bite-induced hallucinations, which Davis describes as both “cool” and “creepy.”
“You’ll get a lot of action scenes, »
On Monday’s Jane the Virgin (The CW, 9/8c), the titular heroine preps her boyfriend/baby daddy Rafael for dinner with her family, but winning over her disapproving mom Xo will prove even harder than the couple fears.
“There’s definitely tension. Let’s put it that way,” Andrea Navedo previews.
For starters, Rafael rubs Xo the wrong way when he says Jane should do whatever she wants when it comes to her career, since he’ll take care of her and the baby financially.
“I just can’t get past the fact that he has a lot of money, »
