Hulu Takes Down an Episode of ‘Golden Girls’ Over Blackface Concerns

Hulu has removed an episode of The Golden Girls over blackface concerns amid Hollywood’s grappling with troubling portrayals of race in film and TV.

Vampire Dad – review

Director: Frankie Ingrassia Release date: 2020 Contains spoilersPulling itself back in time to the sixties, something the film does admirably well, Vampire Dad is a comedy that feels more like the stretched out opening to a sit-com (or perhaps a couple of episodes mashed together) than it does a feature. This does not mean it is bad, indeed it is great fun, but it means there is a missing something, which I will discuss of course. Don’t let that put you off, however. What is there works well ...

The 10 Best Michael Keaton Batman Moments

The 10 Best Michael Keaton Batman Moments The cape crusader’s appearances on the silver screen have made him a global icon. The campy serials have their place in history, but it is arguably Michael Keaton’s performance in Tim Burton’s 1989 film,  Batman  (order your copy here) , that modernized the character. Keaton wasn’t just a good Batman but also a stellar Bruce Wayne: a perfect concoction of suave and grit. A lot of people grew up with Keaton’s Batman (the same way a lot of us grew u...

First online class: 7 of 8 pass test, #8 to test soon

Here are some of the students in my first online Tech class. A couple of weeks ago, I got an email from Bob, W7JNM.  He said that he had assembled a group of people who wanted to take a Technician class and would I consider teaching an online class. Honestly, I was a little hesitant. One of the reasons was that I was pretty sure that I couldn’t teach it in a single day. Another was I didn’t know how well my style of teaching would translate to an online format. Another possible “gotcha” would b...
