Tom Howe is an English composer who has been working in the film and television industry since the mid-2000s. Though starting relatively recently, his works have been heard by millions, with British audiences in particular no doubt being familiar with his compositions for programs like Autopsy: The Last Hours Of…, The Lodge, and Paranormal Witness. His latest two musical pieces are for the movies Early Man and Charming, both set to be released in 2018.
Flickering Myth had the privilege of interviewing him, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it. I began by asking Mr. Howe a seemingly straightforward question of what the biggest difference was between composing for a television series versus composing for a movie. “The truth is the difference is becoming less and less,” Howe told me, as the past 10 years or so has seen
Elizabeth Ho is an American actress who has been working in the industry since the mid-2000s. She studied acting at the University of Southern California, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in theater, all while working numerous blue collar jobs on the side. Her breakthrough came with the Netflix original show Disjointed, which she currently stars in as Jenny. Flickering Myth managed to get an interview with her, and I in turn had the privilege to conduct it.
Ms. Ho, who goes by Liz, has worked on several different sets over the course of her career, from cable network shows to television movies. I began by asking her how different working on a Netflix show is compared to those other venues.
“I think it really hit me when Kathy Bates said the word ‘f*ck’ on set,” she answered with a laugh.
Ruth’s Alternative Caring is re-opening its doors. A trailer for Part 2 of the marijuana dispensary comedy “Disjointed” has dropped and promises plenty of new cannabis-fueled shenanigans for Ruth (Kathy Bates) and her co-workers — as well as some social commentary.
“I’m getting back to my roots. The whole planet’s gone to hell. I’m pissed off,” longtime legalization advocate Ruth announces. Now that she’s achieved her dream of opening a legit pot business, she’s ready to dive into other causes. According to a list seen in the clip, “Polar Ice Caps/Ice Caps in General” and “Protestant Reformation (Too Late?)” are among the topics she’s most passionate about.
But it’s not like Ruth could ever forget her first love. The trailer also teases one mother of a 420 celebration, complete with singing, dancing, and cannabis leaf-patterned umbrellas. “You don’t

In part two of the 20-episode series, Ruth’s Alternative Caring has reopened after having been shut down by the DEA, keeping Ruth and her “budtenders” in business. “Disjointed” also stars Chris Redd,
You might have seen that Disjointed (debuting this Friday) stars the great Kathy Bates and airs on Netflix, and assumed that it must be innovative in some way. But don’t be fooled: This is basically a lame CBS sitcom dressed up in hip, streaming-service clothing. Chuck Lorre (of Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory fame) is an executive producer here,
“Head to Ruth’s joint and buy as many joints as you’d like!” is a slogan Ruth herself might share in the series: an easy, obvious joke for a show built (mostly) around simple pleasures.
Fans of equally elementary wordplay are probably sold, but not so fast — the new Netflix comedy unveils a harsh buzz upon further pun-vestigation. Optimists could argue “disjointed” refers to the the pieced together family of pot dealers, smokers, and breeders who all work out of Ruth’s shop. That’s a nice thought, but after binging four episodes,
Academy Award winner Kathy Bates plays Ruth, a lifelong advocate for legalization who is finally living her dream as the owner of an Los Angeles cannabis dispensary, Ruth’s Alternative Caring. Joining her are three charismatic “budtenders”, her entrepreneurial twenty-something year old son and a very troubled security guard.
Disjointed arrives on Netflix on August 25th.
You could make these jokes all day and apparently, so can “Disjointed,” the latest Netflix multicam comedy premiering later this month. Kathy Bates stars as the proprietor of “Ruth’s Alternative Caring,” an L.A.-area pot dispensary, a woman who runs the store along with a handful of ragtag employees.
