  1. Nooo, I cant believe it, my favorite miniseries of all times! One of my favorite books, but NBC has no money for such an enterprise. Dan Curtis went bankrupt with the sequel. And then...the subject..in this Age of Diversity, the leads would have to be played by Blacks and Latinx. Dying to watch the israeli series, pray Netflix buys it like it did with Shtisel and Fauda, and they made it in Ladino too? Cool. Hate Hulu getting Mexican Gothic. There is no way I can watch Hulu stuff

    1. They will most probably ruin it, I don't really know why do they have to do what was already done before, there are tons of WW2 books waiting to be adapted for the first time. The Israeli series is from the same producers as Fauda, so Netflix might buy this one too if it is any good. Hulu had good series in Harlots, but their The Great is nasty and shitty.

    2. Sadly, but I agree with you. And yes, there are tons of books that should be adapted. Yes, Hulu's series do not live up to theirpromises, although I still want to watch "Das Boot".

    3. I haven't seen the first season of it, sadly, yet, so I cannot start the second one :)

  2. I wonder if Mark and Kelly will cast their daughter as the lead in Mexican Gothic. I mean, she's probably perfect for the role considering the life she's been lucky enough to live.

    1. Oh, Lawd, I've just about had enough of celebrity brats, we don't need another one, although I do love me Kelly and Mark.

    2. Well, nepotism runs rampant in Hollywood, so it wouldn't be shocking if they did. Their daughter is quite beautiful though and would certainly draw in a few eyes.

    3. Hopefully she ain't annoying like most brats.
