Ever Wonder Why Everyone Woman On TV Has The Same Hair? We’ve Got The Answer!

hairstyle

(PCM) If you are a avid television fan like us than you have probably taken notice that nearly everyone woman that graces the screen appears to share the same hair cut. Seriously, take a look. It’s mind-blowing.

We figured that there had to be some sort of logical reasoning behind this hair phenomenon and lo and behold Racked.com has actually discovered the answer to this puzzling mystery.  It actually has more to do with continuity and production than it does with actual fashion. By the women all sharing the same loose and face-framing style with slight curl at the ends, it allows those behind-the scenes to spend less time worrying if hair is the correct length or a piece is out of place, as the style allows for free movement.

Check out the video explanation below:

Always learning new things everyday! At least we have finally moved away for hairstyles like the Jennifer, the Farrah and the Angelina.

Star Trek Celebrates 50th Anniversary! Did You Know Lucille Ball Saved The Series?

lucy-star-trek

(PCM) The iconic and cult-favorite series Star Trek is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary, but did you know that the series almost didn’t make it on the air? It was actually saved by actress and producer Lucille Ball!

Lucy was the head of Desilu Productions and when it was revealed how much the pilot episode of the Star Trek series was going to be to complete it was initially rejected by the production company. Lucy overruled her entire board of directors and made sure that the pilot was produced.  It was later rejected by NBC back in 1964, however the network did ask for another pilot to be filmed with actor William Shatner taking on the role of Captain Kirk.

Lucy financed the project once again going against the judgement of her board of directors. Just another reason why we certainly love Lucy even more!

Actor William Shatner spoke with AARP magazine last month in regards to looking back on 50th anniversary celebration. On the subject of Star Trek being a hit show he said “I mean, Star Trek teetered on the brink for three years. Even while we were on the air, I was probably keeping my eyes open for other jobs.”

When speaking about the power of “Enterprise” Shatner commented “I was making a documentary, and I needed an airplane. So I cold-called an executive at the Canadian airplane manufacturer Bombardier and asked to borrow one. He said, ‘Sure! I became an aeronautical engineer because of you. This is my payback.’”

He went on to jokingly speak out his Starfleet rivals saying “I’m jealous of all the captains who followed me. Some are even young and good looking. I was young and good looking; the important word is ‘was.’”

When asked about being at peace with Captain Kirk, Shatner reveals “Whatever success I’ve had is because of him. I was a leading man, kissing the girls and fighting the villains. That’s not a bad bag to be in.”

A little more Star Trek history: 

Star Trek: The Original Series made its broadcast debut 50 years ago on September 8, 1966, premiering with “The Man Trap.” With this premiere, Star Trek promised to take viewers on a five-year mission where no one had gone before. However, that mission almost ended before it began, as the network rejected the original pilot episode, believing it was “too slow” with “not enough action.” Titled “The Cage,” that first pilot episode would be locked away and not broadcast in its completed form until 22 years later.

The early story of the Star Trek debut is fascinating to fans of classic television and Sci Fi. Beginning in 1966, the Trek journey began with a pilot episode titled “The Cage.” While this episode featured familiar elements, it was otherwise quite different from the Star Trek series audiences would soon discover. This first pilot-to-series version takes place 13 years prior to James T. Kirk taking command of the U.S.S. Enterprise. It had a different Captain, Christopher Pike (Jeffrey Hunter), and with the exception of R. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) it had an entirely different crew and a very different feel. The network rejected this original version, and the episode did not air on television in its completed form until 1988. But the Star Trek concept and universe lived on. A second pilot was ordered and from there the studio went on to produce new episodes, including what would be the premiere episode “The Man Trap” (1966), starring the beloved Star Trek crew led by Capt. James T. Kirk (William Shatner).

Supergirl Lands On The CW Network

supergirl-2

 

 

(PCM) Fans were in an upheaval when it was announced earlier this year that CBS was canceling Supergirl after only one season on the network.  It was announced recently that Supergirl would be returning to the airwaves on CBS’S sister station the CW Network. The move is a smart one seeing that comic book based television shows are bringing in huge ratings for the network.

Supergirl was bringing an averaged 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.03 million viewers overall in Nielsen’s “live plus-7” estimates. It was CBS’ top-rated rookie drama this season in the demo, and was also its youngest-skewing drama with a median age of 55.6. CBS has been known to have given the axe to many shows in the past few years. It is like CBS is afraid to take a chance and try and find a new audience. I guess their mindset is, don’t break what is already working.

As Supergirl fly’s our way in the upcoming weeks it was announced that Tyler Hoechlin (Everybody Wants Some) has been cast as Superman/Clark Kent, the first live-action television incarnation of the Man of Steel since Smallville which went off the air in 2011. Hoechlin will be the sixth actor to portray the last son of Krypton on a live-action television series following George Reeves, John Haymes Newton, Gerard Christopher, Dean Cain, and Tom Welling.

The sophomore season looks right at home on the CW Network. Supergirl’s crossover episode on The Flash which aired in late March was a rating’s boost for the show. With Supergirl landing on the CW we can look forward to seeing many crossover’s with the DC Universe. Season one of Supergirl can now be seen on the CW on Monday nights at 8pm. The second season of Supergirl will premiere on the CW at 8 pm on Monday, October 10th.

Netflix And The Duffer Brothers Officially Confirm ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2

Stranger-Things-Season-Two

(PCM) The news we have been anxiously waiting for has finally arrived! Netflix has officially give the green light to “Stranger Things” season two. The new season will make it’s premiere sometime in 2017.

Following the announcement and release of a all-new teaser trailer, EW.com spoke with the Duffer Brothers to get some further insight into the upcoming season. The Duffers confirmed that the storyline will continue to take place in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, however there may be a few scenes/scenarios that take place outside of the town in the new season. They teased that the opening scene of the new season takes place somewhere else outside of Hawkins.

The story will also pick up almost exactly one year later in November of 1984. Ross Duffer told EW, “I don’t think we ever thought anthology. I think we talked like a larger time jump where the kids are older now and it’s a different decade. That’s something we batted around from the very beginning. But for us, there’s still more story here [in the 1980s], there’s still things that are unresolved.” So, expect to see the return of Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Joyce (Winona Ryder), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), etc. “We don’t know about Eleven. We leave that up in the air.”

The brothers also revealed that there will be four new characters introduced in the second season and there will be nine episodes. It appears that the words featured in the teaser trailer are the titles of season two episodes.

Sadly A Favorite ‘Stranger Things’ Character Will Not Be Making A Return

** The following article contain several spoilers from the Netflix original series “Stranger Things” **

Barb-Stranger-Things

(PCM) Fans of the Netflix original series “Stranger Things” will be saddened to learn that one of their beloved characters will sadly not be making a return for season two. For some reason fans absolutely fell in love with the quirky character of Barb, Nancy’s best friend, who tragically lost her life to the monster during her trip to the Upside Down. Fans were holding out hope that somehow Barb would pull through, however new comments made by series creator Matt Duffer to IGN appear to seal Barb’s unfortunate fate.

Even though there was a clear shot of Barb’s corpse seen by Eleven when visiting the Upside Down, there was still some amount of hope that Barb would somehow survive. Matt Duffer says to IGN, “I can’t see it happening. But Barb will not be forgotten. We’ll make sure there’s some justice for Barb. People get very frustrated, understandably, that the town doesn’t seem to be really dealing with Barb. That stuff is all happening. We’re just not spending any screen time on it. It’s not like her parents are like ‘Oh Barb left. She died!’ Season One actually takes place over the course of six or seven days – it’s a really short period of time. So part of what we want to do with hypothetical Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened.”

May Barb sadly rest in peace, however something tells us that peace and the Upside Down do not go hand in hand! Now we will see Nancy have to wrestle with the guilt of letting her best friend die while getting it on with Steve w/the good hair! Yuck!

Duffer also revealed that we may not have seen the end of evil Dr. Brenner. “I would say that if we were going to kill Brenner…as an audience member watching the show, if that was his death, that would be very unsatisfying to me — when the monster jumps on him and we cut away. He would deserve much more than that as an ending. So yes, there’s a possibility of seeing him again.”

Ugh! No Barb and more Dr. Brenner, either way we can’t wait to see how season two will play out!
