Justin H. Min, who plays Ben, will now be playing Sparrow #2 going forward, and Netflix has said the following about the character:

‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3 Unveils Cast For Sparrow Academy Which Includes… A Telekinetic Cube?
The end of the second season of The Umbrella Academy left us with the introduction of an alternate 2019 which included a very much alive Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) and someone who seemed to be Ben (Justin H. Min). We also saw five people — including a floating cube that dubbed themselves the Sparrow Academy. This new mysterious group of kids aren’t necessarily doppelgangers to the original Umbrella Academy, but they might as well be.

Netflix has unveiled the actors who will make up the Sparrow Academy, which was formed by Hargreeves in this alternate 2019. In addition to Min, Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Genesis Rodriguez, Cazzie David, Jake Epstein and destined-for-greatness actor known as “Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube” are set to join The Umbrella Academy as this new motley crew with extraordinary abilities. They will join Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Ritu Arya

‘The Flight Attendant’ Sticks the Landing
This post contains spoilers for The Flight Attendant, whose finale is now available on HBO Max.

Back when I used to travel to places in the before time, I would greet the sound of the plane’s wheels touching down on the runway with an exhalation and a little smile. I knew the odds were highly in favor of a safe landing, but it was still reassuring to hear that thunk. When a television show I’m enjoying is about to come in for a landing, I hold my breath more deeply,

Honorary Oscar Recommendations: Is It Time for Indiana Jones and Chucky?

Honorary Oscar Recommendations: Is It Time for Indiana Jones and Chucky?
The Oscars don’t always get it right, and that’s why they have the Honorary Award. Countless actors and actresses have contributed greatly to the cinematic medium, but not every impact is deemed “Oscar-worthy.” Until the Academy at large begins embracing all genres and performance, the prize is given to reward a career that has had an influence in film.

The honor was created for achievements not covered by existing competitive categories and has been used for a few “course corrections” or significant milestones worth celebrating. In the past, the special award has been bestowed on artists such as Jackie Chan, Steve Martin, Gena Rowlands, Donald Sutherland and most recently David Lynch, Wes Studi and Lina Wertmüller, (“Seven Beauties”), the first female directing nominee.

There’s no limit to the number of awards that can be handed out each year, and giving suggestions can be tricky. Below are my

Quibi Officially Fades To Black, As Projected When Founders Announced Shutdown In October – Update
Updated; 7:28 Am The end credits have finished rolling for Quibi, the ambitious short-form subscription video service that launched last April at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

After a brief and floundering run, the Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman run app is over as of today – as anticipated.

Quibi still has a working website and a profile on major social media platforms. But the social accounts have become private and the Quibi app no longer allows users to sign in or view programming. When subscribers try to log in, they get an error message, but the app will stay on their phones until it is deleted.

Founder Katzenberg and CEO Whitman debuted their much trumpeted entry into a crowded streaming market after waves of marketing funded by $1.75 billion in startup financing, only to see it quickly fizzle.

The final exit is right on schedule for Quibi, which was initially founded by Katzenberg,

30 best TV series finales ranked, including ‘M*A*S*H,’ ‘Newhart,’ ‘Friends’ [Photos]
Once upon a time, in a TV world long ago, there was no such thing as a series finale. How can that be? In the beginning, most series were episodic, and although viewers came to love many characters, there weren’t story arcs to be resolved, or even futures to be determined. Somewhere out there, it seems, Lucy and Ricky and Fred and Ethel will always be up to their shenanigans, because it quite simply never really ended.

That all changed in 1963 when Americans got hooked on “The Fugitive.” Week to week, viewers tuned in to watch wrongly-convicted Dr. Kimble relentlessly search for his wife’s true killer while running from the law. TV history was made in 1967 when this series provided an actual conclusion to its story, which went on to become the most-watched television episode up to that time, proving that audiences yearned for closure with their favorite characters.
