Too alarmin' now to talk about. Take your pictures down and shake it out. Truth or consequence, say it aloud. Use that evidence, race it around. There goes my hero… watch him as he goes. There goes my hero… the BCTV Daily Dispatch! With waves of love and respect for the greatness that is the Foo Fighters, we're back with another round of the best and brightest across the television landscape over the past twenty-four hours. Newbies for this go-around include WWE Raw recap, Kevin Can F**K Himself review, The Flash preview, and a Big Mouth spinoff with Nick Kroll, and Renee Paquette's "virgin birth" is celebrated (and while not yet making the cut, The CW's Stargirl gets the Eclipso ball rolling).
Following that, we have the "BCTV Rewind" with a selection of curated articles more than worth your time that you may have missed the first time around. Then we round out everything with another edition of "BCTV Weird," where we look back at that time the producers of My So-Called Life detonated a nuclear bomb destroying Charleston, South Carolina. But first, here's a look at today's BCTV's 10/24 Rundown:
And here are a few more articles to add to your reading lists- including Loki thoughts, a Perfect Strangers reboot, a Trese panel, Beauty and the Beast prequel series gets a green light, Black Summer interview, River Song returns, a double dose of "American Horror Story" universe news, The CW sets its fall schedule, Jenna Elfman offers greetings from the Fear the Walking Dead Season 7 set, Titans Season 3 is ready to wrap, Lesley-Ann Brandt offers Manifest a little Lucifer luck, Marvel Studios stars talk television, and Stargirl gets a second-season poster with a touch of Eclipso:
First airing in 1983 and stemming from director Edward Zwick and writer Marshall Herskovitz (thirtysomething, My So-Called Life), the Emmy Award-winning Special Bulletin was set up as a series of simulated news broadcasts in which RBS anchors John Woodley (Ed Flanders) and Susan Myles (Kathryn Walker) cover a terrorist group that's docked a tugboat with a nuclear device aboard in the harbor of Charleston, South Carolina. Their aim? Force the U.S. Government to disable all of its nuclear weapons. The result? Well… let's just say a decent chunk of the southeast ended up not quite livable for the next thirty-plus years or so. Though it was clear that it wasn't a real news broadcast and there were disclaimers throughout, the result was still pretty chilling- especially the broadcasts that take place after everything goes south. You can check out the entire movie here– or check out the following preview:
