Morning Coffee (3/18/11)Morning Coffee
Happy Friday! As I mentioned, I'm taking a quick trip this weekend, so I'm currently running around getting ready.
Tonight's TV Picks: Fringe, Merlin
The Times has announced digital subscription details, including its new paywall (after a certain number of articles, and not counting links from blogs or Twitter). A lot of people are up in arms, but I want the Times to stay in business, and I don't think anyone has any magical right to all their content free, so . . . I don't really get the issue. That said, I'm a paper subscriber, so it's nice that they're including the digital subscription with that.
Another thing about which people are up in arms: Jennifer Lawrence being cast in The Hunger Games.
Taylor Swift and Zac Efron are finally doing a movie together, as some of us who spend too much time thinking about this stuff have been saying they should for quite a while. Please, Taylor, fall in love and write us a song about his pretty pretty eyes.
A producer of Midsomer Murders was suspended for making awful comments about how he refused to cast ethnic minorities on his show because it would make it less "English." Gah. In general, I'm in favor of movies or shows set in a particular time and place accurately reflecting the demographics and attitudes of those settings, but this obviously . . . doesn't.Posted by Kat at March 18, 2011 06:59 AM
