Why Some Episodes of ‘The Muppet Show’ Are Missing or Have Disclaimers on Disney+

The Muppet Show is now available to stream for the first time ever. Well, the vast majority of it, and a few of the episodes that are available come with some content disclaimers. But it’s all part of bringing a beloved TV staple to Disney+, a streaming platform that has taken an active role in informing its relatively young audiences about the cultural context in which potentially troubling stereotypes might pop up. Yes, even in The Muppet Show. Disney+ has been fairly good at the disclaime...

Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the globe." The NY Post reports, adding "It’s unstated precisely what Disney considers to be offensive on the show, but some characters depict Native American, Middle Eastern and Asian people.

As the David Bowie biopic Stardust is released, we take a look through the greatest music star portrayals – from Johnny Cash and Billie Holiday to Ian Curtis and Ray CharlesSome inspired casting made this biopic fiercely watchable – and it’s a movie that doesn’t quite conform to either of the genre’s two templates: underdog rise or tragic downfall.

"It would be nice if the wall-to-wall marathon showings of A Christmas Story on TBS and TNT led to a rediscovery of Jean Shepherd's other work..."

"... and even to a revival of the radio arts, but given that people have so many other things to occupy themselves nowadays, that it's unlikely."  Said Lurker21, in the comments to the Christmas Café. I've never seen "A Christmas Story," though I am one of Jean Shepherd's biggest fans. For years, in the 1960s, I used to get in bed in time to hear the "Call to Post" — which, today, sounds like something about blogging — on my radio tuned to WOR. And then...   Listening to those Jean...

Lakers closeout reputation will clash with Denver’s comeback magic in Game 5

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> After a Game 4 in which LeBron James scored 26 points, was a rebound and two assists short of his fourth triple-double this postseason, and played victory-clinching defense on the Nuggets’ best player, he was asked about his minutes. James had played 38 minutes that night, 10 of which were in the fourth quarter. He bristled at the suggestion that his postseason workload this year, which is at a career low 34.6 minutes per game, contributed to him having enough energy to...

Clippers coach Doc Rivers denies assertion that sports figures are ‘fanning flames of hatred’

Sam Rockwell to Play Country Singer Merle Haggard in New Amazon Movie, Will Do His Own Singing

Sam Rockwell is known for dancing his heart out in many of the movies he’s appeared in over the years.

Hear Brian Eno’s Rarely-Heard Cover of the Johnny Cash Classic, “Ring of Fire”

"Ring of Fire" has been covered many times and in many ways since Johnny Cash released it in 1963. But for all its recognition as one of his signature songs, Cash's "Ring of Fire" is itself a cover — or another interpretation, in any case, of a tune originally written by Cash's wife June Carter and songwriter Merle Kilgore for June's sister, Anita Carter. Though it made nothing like the mark Cash's recording did, the original "Ring of Fire" has its appreciators, a group that may well inc...
