'SHANNARA' EPIC TV SERIES
IVANA BAQUERO JOINS THE ELVES
Tones of television news for you today, people, starting with the update on MTV's small screen adaptation of famous epic fantasy novels SHANNARA which has a new cast addition: young Ivana Baquero, who played the little girl in PAN'S LABYRINTH, will star in the ten episodes of the epic series set in our world, thousands of years after the destruction of our civilization. The descendants of the SHANNARA family are empowered with ancient magic and their adventures continuously reshape the future of the world. Ivana Baquero will play Eretria, a young woman from the wrong side of the tracks who’s been forced to use her beauty and wits to survive. She’s a human who has been raised in a den of thieves known as the Rovers. When she rescues elven prince Will (Austin Butler) from danger she becomes unwittingly tied to his and his sister Amberle’s (Poppy Drayton) quest to save the Four Lands. Aaron Jakubenko and Manu Bennett are also in the cast!

    1. it's the best one outthere, extremely deep and tackling social and political issues always with a compromise which is why I watch it eventhough I hate right wingers (Tim's character is a strong republican in it). Truly a unique sitcom in today's world of stupid comedies

  2. I bet this episode of Last Man Standing is going to be a riot! I always loved Tim and Patricia on Home Improvement!

    1. it will be a massive riot, I'm ever so excited! She will be the third, methinks, member of HOME IMPROVEMENT to cameo in LAST MAN! They say she might stay as a regular guest if the audience likes her! That would be a thrill!

    2. Of course audiences will like her! What's not to like about those two together again! They were from a time when tv was wholesome and fun to watch, unlike the garbage of shows today.

    3. that is true, and LAST MAN STANDING is one of the very few, if not the last one, of the wholesome sitcoms on TV today

  4. I wasn't too crazy about Pan's Labyrinth. Last Man Standing- haven;t seen it.
    Leona Lewis is still singing about Christmas(lol).
    Love the blue outfit and snowflakes, though you probably changed two weeks ago and I didn't notice.

    1. I hated PAN LABYRINTH, and I hate what del Toro brought to the cinemas - openly stabbing a little girl on the screen... that is a taboo which never should have been crossed....

      LAST MAN STANDING is truly lovely, one of the very few shows and sitcoms today that actually have lots of depth and message.

  7. Looking forward to seeing Shannara. Unlike most, I thought Pan's Labyrinth was a good watch. Haven't seen Last Man Standing...will have to look for it! Thanks for the updates!

    1. I just cannot accept movies in which kids are being killed, especially vividly and openly.
      Hope MTV doesn't turn SHANNARA into a teen fest....

  8. Lots of good info here. I'm looking forward to seeing "Last Man Standing" in a couple hours. That should be a good episode. I don't always agree with his non-PC comments on the show, but I really like it. It's kinda cool that he plays an amateur radio operator on the show, and a couple months ago, he actually got his license for real. (But I haven't talked to him on the air... yet.)

    1. I can't wait to check out ratings for LAST MAN STANDING episode later today!
      I almost never agree with Mike's opinions in the sitcom, especially about hunting and politics, but that is why they have liberal characters in it too, like his son in law, to make balance and a compromise in the end. And it is so educational and thought provoking to watch
