Mulled Wine

Will tomorrow’s Mueller testimony pop any corks? Cause a public thirst for impeachment? Or finally dilute the taste for more Congressional hearings? Who knows. But. The Nadler-Schiff label will be served on every TV network. Take a sip every time someone says obstruction.

Speaking of bland blends. Season 2 of Big Little Lies. Except for Kidman v. Streep in the finale. Tours-de-force performance. High end.

Revivals

Tonys the best TV show. Actual talent on display from old classics Oklahoma or Kiss Me Kate. James Corden. Who new? He was great.

Big Little Lies. Season 2. Abusive husband replaced by abusive mother-in-law. Of course. Celeste takes the bait. Evil and dark, Meryl Streep is even better in the role than I’d predicted. Real. Resonates.

Rory woke up and commanded Canada’s course. Welcome back.

Toxic Misandry Lies

Meryl Streep joins the cast of Big Little Lies. Her role as mother of the late wife-abuser looks to be complex and enticingly evil. As such she has been doing press with her co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman et al. A strong-minded talented group of women.

However. Broken record alert. Agree with Meryl. The oft-used #MeToo phrase Toxic Masculinity hurts boys. Always said so. Not great for men either. Toxic People do exist. Individuals of either gender.

So. Yay Meryl. Toxic misandry should not be an acceptable theme. Looking forward to Season 2.
