The exorcism of weeknight TV

Get ready television watchers. If you still tune into the TEE VEE screen for your nightly entertainment, a new show may soon grace your safe living space: An NBC exorcism program..

The DOME must be dull.. crime shows are saturating the market.. And as for comedy, nothing is funny anymore.

Cue the doom and get the gloom: The exorcist is knocking.

Here are what trade publications are telling us about this new venture into the paranormal and religious: NBC is going to explore demonic possession in a new program. The network handed out a script called THE POSSESSION OF MAGGIE GILL that follows the Gills, an American middle class family who experience frequent paranormal activity within their Eugene, Oregon home.

The program is being produced by Amblin Television--the same that gave us UNDER THE DOME and EXTANT, among others..

Lately, it would seem, evil is selling on the small screen. ROSEMARY had her baby and the gates of hell opened in the Middle East.

Yes, there may be no connection.. it's all entertainment, baby. But which comes first? The reality or the making of? The chicken or the egg? Which influences which? You can the judge, jury, and exorciser on that.

In the mean time, the power of Christ is compelling our entertainers to give us more of what we want. Apparently we want monsters, demons, and exorcisms. And lots of them.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…
