The Stand Timeline Explained

The Stand Timeline Explained
This article contains spoilers for The Stand episode 1.

Sometimes opening in media res has some real storytelling value. The goal of just about any story is to get people interested in continuing it. Given that the beginnings of stories are often expository and not particularly exciting, who could forgive a storyteller for wanting to jump right into the thick of the action and then fill in the blanks of what came before

Well, in the case of CBS All Access’s The Stand, I can blame producer/director Josh Boone and showrunner Benjamin Cavell for wanting to jump right in and I will do just that. Stephen King’s classic 1978 novel of the same name is an epic tale and presents all sorts of storytelling challenges to those who would want to adapt it. One of those challenges, however, is not how to begin it.

The Stand’s remarkable narrative begins in Arnette,

Don’t underestimate ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ in the Golden Globes’ wide-open comedy/musical categories

Don’t underestimate ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ in the Golden Globes’ wide-open comedy/musical categories
Look out for Irish romantic comedy “Wild Mountain Thyme” to score Golden Globe bids in the comedy/musical film categories when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announces its nominations on Feb. 3.

With no clear comedy front-runner, there’s a bunch of potential contenders jockeying for attention alongside “Thyme,” including “On The Rocks,” “Palm Springs,” “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” “Emma”, “The King of Staten Island,” and the upcoming “The Prom” and “Promising Young Woman.”

Wild Mountain Thyme” is the latest from writer-director John Patrick Shanley (“Doubt”). Set in the lush Irish countryside, it stars Emily Blunt as Rosemary, a farmer who pines for her dashing neighbor Anthony (Jamie Dornan). The two become caught up in their families’ land dispute, as Anthony’s father (Christopher Walken) wants to sell their farm to American relative Adam (Jon Hamm).

Jamie Dornan on Why ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ Is the Irish Love Story He’s Been Waiting For

Jamie Dornan on Why ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ Is the Irish Love Story He’s Been Waiting For
Jamie Dornan was in lockdown with his family when he received a fan letter that was more than a little creepy. The star of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movies was sent “a collage of photographs of a kid,” with a note about his most famous role.

“Someone saying that it was my kid, and my wife should know that I have this kid who’s 7 years old,” Dornan, 38, says over a Zoom call. He squints to absorb the weirdness of this allegation. “I think they were trying to say that the kid was mine and Dakota Johnson’s, and we’d had this baby while we made the first ‘Fifty Shades’ movie,” Dornan says. “It piqued our interest, let’s say. It was a bit freaky.”

Dornan learned all about freaky things when he suited up as Christian Grey, the sexually adventurous businessman based on the E.L. James books that became a cultural phenomenon.

What Makes Eden Netflix’s First “Japanese Original Anime”?

What Makes Eden Netflix’s First “Japanese Original Anime”?
Earlier this week, Netflix re-released the promising trailer for Eden, a science fiction anime series coming to the streamer in May 2021. The four-episode, Japanese-language series is set thousands of years in the future in a robot city known as “Eden 3.” When two farming robots accidentally awaken a human baby girl from stasis during a routine assignment, they begin to question everything they thought they knew about the myth of humanity and decide to raise the child secretly on their own.

Great premise, right? Well, the production has some great creative talent to drive it too. Eden comes from director Yasuhiro Irie, who also did Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and boasts Toshihiro Kawamoto, best known as character designer and animation director for Cowboy Bebop, as a concept designer. Hopefully, Eden is good; regardless, it is a notable series in the history of Netflix, as Eden is being billed as “the first Netflix Japanese Original Anime.

‘The Vow’: What the Finale’s Surprise Twist Means for Season 2
HBO’s buzzy Nxivm sex cult docuseries “The Vow” has been criticized for dragging at times over the course of its nine-episode run. But the closing moments of Sunday’s season finale left no doubt about where the storyline is headed in season two, which HBO formally ordered last week.

Warning, spoilers for the finale episode of “The Vow” ahead.

Here comes the counterspin from now-convicted felons Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman, co-founders of the self-help programs at the heart of the whole of shocking story that led to federal human trafficking, sex abuse and racketeering charges. “The Fall,” episode 9 of “The Vow,” ends with hints that the pair will go on camera, or at least on the record, with “Vow” directors/executive producers Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer.

The closing sequence features what appears to be a glimpse of Salzman under house arrest, complete with a shot of her

9 Best TV Roles From Gillian Anderson

9 Best TV Roles From Gillian Anderson
Full-time TV goddess and part-time television detective Gillian Anderson is never far from our minds. Here are nine of our favorite TV roles from the actress, whose on-screen legacy reaches far past The X-Files franchise to British period dramas, eccentric Bryan Fuller shows, and animated snarkiness.

Dana Scully in The X-Files

Let’s just get this way out of the way, shall we? Not because Anderson’s turn as Agent Dana Scully over the course of 11 seasons (and counting?) of The X-Files TV show and two The X-Files movies should or could be diminished, but because most everyone is familiar with Anderson’s turn as the chronically skeptical FBI agent.

Dana Katherine Scully is more than a TV character. She’s an institution. I grew up watching The X-Files and having a female character who wasn’t the same cookie-cutter example of what it was to be a woman made

Channel 5’s The Deceived Ending & Plot: What Happened to Ophelia, Roisin and Michael?

Channel 5’s The Deceived Ending & Plot: What Happened to Ophelia, Roisin and Michael?
Warning: contains finale spoilers for The Deceived

‘This has all been about your fragile little ego, hasn’t it?’ Ophelia told Michael in The Deceived’s final episode, and she was dead-on. Dr Michael Callaghan, played by Emmett J Scanlan, was poison to the women around him. He lied, cheated and manipulated to conceal his inadequacies, and in the end, paid the price. With spoilers, here’s how the psychological thriller’s finale played out.

What happened to Annabelle?

Before Michael’s affair with Ophelia (played by Emily Reid), he was cheating on his wife with another student – Annabelle Lorimer (played by Saffron Coomber). She had written the manuscript of her first novel – The Ruin – and asked him to read it. Realising it was good, and having failed to get his own first novel published, Michael stole her work, changed the title, and had it published as his own debut.
