Price Is Right Awards A Treadmill To Contestant In A Wheelchair

Price-Is-Right

(PCM) Ugh! Not again Price Is Right!  The hit CBS game show recently made headlines when one of their spokesmodel’s accidentally gave away a brand-new car and now they are making headlines yet again after awarding a treadmill as the prize for a wheelchair bound contestant.

Can we say awkward? Danielle, the contestant in the wheelchair actually won two prizes, the treadmill and a sauna, however that did not stop social media from erupting about the absurdity of the entire situation.

Many were not sure if it was a producer fail, but the announcer did seem to very much rush through revealing the details about the treadmill and shifted much more focus on to the sauna. The contestant, Danielle, appeared to be a bit surprised by her prizes and said “Those are really nice”.

Good job Price Is Right!  CBS has yet to comment on the incident!

(PCM) TNA Entertainment today announced Billy Corgan, founder of the Smashing Pumpkins and creative icon, is joining TNA Wrestling as Senior Producer, Creative and Talent Development, effective immediately. In this position, Corgan will develop characters and create story lines for TNA’s flagship program IMPACT WRESTLING, broadcast Friday nights at 9/8c on Destination America, as well as other TNA programming.

“I’ve known Billy for years and have always been blown away by his musical artistry, as well as his knowledge and understanding of professional wrestling,” said TNA President Dixie Carter. “He has always impressed me with his creativity and passion for our business. Billy is truly gifted and understands the emotion tied to the psychology of connecting with an audience. The more we talked, the more I realized his perspective has the potential to make a huge impact on our brand.”

“Saying I’m humbled and honored by this opportunity to be part of TNA, a world-class wrestling organization, is an understatement and a dream come true,” said Corgan. “What’s great is the entire TNA organization stands in full support of my music life with the Smashing Pumpkins.

We knew Billy would bring a great viewpoint when we offered, and he graciously accepted, to attend a recent creative summit. During those meetings, Billy’s pioneering perspectives and collaborative approach made it quickly evident we needed to bring him on as a permanent member of our team.”

Marvel Netflix A.K.A. Jessica Jones Villain is Who!

(PCM) If you are swept up in the Netflix Daredevil hysteria, this news may by just for you. A former Doctor Who is a major villain. Netflix follow up show to Daredevil will be A.K.A. Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter seen below on set.

Jessica Jones is a class B Marvel superhero similar to Daredevil. A villain responsible for her backstory known as Purple Man will played by none other than former Dr Who, David Tennant. Upon seeing him portray the Purple Man you may never feel the same way about David Tennant again. We won’t spoil the story but be warned you may never experience a darker story in superhero lore. After all Jessica Jones has enjoyed a Marvel adult title in Marvel’s MAX series.

A.K.A. Jessica Jones will pick up with Jessica Jones after she’s made a short super hero run but is moved on as a private investigator. Tennant’s Purple Man will be in all 13 episodes which clearly indicates his character will be to Jones what Wilson Fisk is to Daredevil. With 13 episodes of Purple Man it’s also smart to assume he won’t be just her back story but her ongoing antagonist. An interesting side note is that the Purple Man really has it in for Daredevil.  If the show Daredevil is any indicator of how raw and visually upsetting a show can be, Jessica Jones is in for a very rough ride during her 13 episodes.

The photo below is of David Tennant walking along Union Square in lower Manhattan (April 2015). Union Square is a busy area known for it’s unique lively characters who inhabit Manhattan. Union Square not as well known as touristy Time’s Square, yet it is much more interesting. You can see David Tennant is dressed in purple which would indicate Marvel is taking the grounded in reality approach, perhaps abandoning the character’s purple skin color and merely giving Purple Man an affinity for the color purple. However in the comic book, the Purple Man has purple skin due to a freak accident. Purple skin could be explained and make for a more visual villain but this isn’t a canon killer. As long as the original story of how the Purple Man affects Jessica Jones is portrayed accurately that will make for the best story.

Marvel and Netflix have a full mini-universe planned. Hell’s Kitchen will have a full host of super heroes. Four in total. A.K.A. Jessica Jones is following Daredevil in 2015 to be followed by Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The four shows will culminate in a team up series named The Defenders which follows comic book canon. The most interesting fact of all is that these Netflix Marvel super hero characters are part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).  They could legitimately appear in any MCU film along with the likes of Iron Man or Captain Marvel.

Also featured in the Jessica Jones Netflix original will be Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
