Best of Tom & Michael, 2017 [Jan. 1st, 2018|06:40 pm]
So another year recedes...can't say that 2017 was one of my favourites. There was political upheaval and personal loss, but there were also a few currants in the cake: getting to travel a bit, meeting up with Michael-pals at two conventions, regaining my mobility after last year's broken ankle. And of course there was THIS, ie the GREATEST THING THAT HAPPENED IN 2017:

Tom is amazing on Lucifer. There was an intriguing revelation about his character in the fall finale, which I won't spoil but should lead to interesting developments!


Kristin is producing her own show, "Burden of Proof", which will air on Canadian TV starting on Jan 10. Being the boss = Not a trace of pink in her wardrobe!

KK talked a bit about the Me Too movement. It made me think about the time a guest actress on SV, Katherine Isabelle, recalled a director trying to force KK into a more revealing costume and KK refusing.

I've wondered if KK will eventually address the elephant in the room, ie Allison M and the cult. A poster on reddit claims that AM's mother and sister are also part of the cult, which makes AM being able to extricate herself even more unlikely. If anything, in recent social media posts, AM seems to have doubled down. :(

But on a happier note, my favourite exchange from the best interview of the year!

Tom: "Remember Steve?"
Michael: "Steve! Our gay wardrobe guy! He was like: "Rosenbaum, you are gay except for your dick. Everything about you is fucking gay."
Tom: "He did say that many times."
Michael: "I loved Steve, didn't you?"
Tom: "Mmm-hmmm."
Michael: "How many times did he see you naked?"
Tom: "More than a handful, I'm sure!"
Michael: "I always asked him: "What does Tom look like naked?" He's like: "I'm not telling you anything."
Tom: *laughs*
Michael: "I'm like "You're good. And what do I look like naked?" He's like "Eh."

I'll go read that article. Sorry to hear about it, though. She seemed so smart and perky. Looks like maybe Kristin was the one to watch, after all.

Michael does seem to be just one really great guy. I haven't met him, as you have, but it shines through. :)

Kristin was part of the cult too, along with her boyfriend at the time - but fortunately managed to extricate herself back around 2010 or so. This cult was targeting women in Vancouver, where SV was filmed.

I still hope Allison can get free but it's been 10 years for her now :(

I'm reading an article at Rolling Stone, horrified by the details. What a terrible thing. So glad KK got out and hope Allison will eventually, but it sounds like she could be liable for prosecution if it comes to that. Ugh.

Yeah. it's grim. The cult leader is a very dangerous man, expert in exploiting vulnerable people. Here's hoping authorities nab him in 2018.

Yes, I very much hope they do.
