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."

Tom's increased visibility has been a saving grace of 2017!

No one but Michael could have given this to us, and it was a delight from start to finish. I am forever grateful. Love how the boys still look at each other, and the dueling ARMS, in your pics!I'll be checking out KK's new show. I've always found her to be thoughtful and articulate in interviews. I can only imagine what she has faced over the years. I remember reading about how the director of Nicodemus was awful to KK during the swimming pool scene, is that the incident you're talking about?
I meant "Slumber" as Frelling details below, but Nicodemus was actually worse because KK was only 19 there and Lana was supposed to be 15! I always felt that the episode wasted an opportunity there, with Lana such a passive character. Nicodemus should have been a chance for some of her underlying anger to come out, but no, it's all sleazy-producer wish fulfillment.

In hew new show, she gets to play a tough lawyer and she looks fabulous and professional!

I look forward to Michael's podcast every week (missed it last week and hope it returns soon!). Every episode is different, and they're all so interesting. For me his guests from the world of sports have been a particular revelation, since I know nothing about any of that. Glad the response has exceeded his expectations!
He mentioned that Seth Green and Zach Levi are coming up but did not mention AM, which is a relief under the circumstances. Still hoping for Glover!

I hope you get to see Michael again this year at a Con or two, and who knows, maybe Tom will join him!
Thank you - if Tom does do a Con, I hope you get to see him! Michael's now signed up for Cons in St Louis, Cleveland, Philly & Chicago so plenty of opportunity for Tom to join him <3
