This one will haunt your dreams.” But, some critics, such as Alan Sepinwall, feel that the show just has scenes and sounds that people will want to forget. Some critics gave mixed reviews, such as Mary McNamara of The Los Angeles Times who said “Because even with all the zombies and vampires, there is always room for a good “American Horror Story”. The first season scored a 62 out of 100 from the review site Metacritic  from 30 reviews by critics.

TV Soaps and Coronavirus, Less Episodes Being Screened

It’s taken our sports, it’s taken movies, our freedom. Coronavirus is also trying to take our soaps.

And while Coronation Street, Eastenders, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks have had their schedules cut, they  have not been cancelled altogether.

Eastenders.  Filming of has been suspended due to the pandemic, and it will only be on BBC twice a week instead of the usual four times for the foreseeable future.

Coronation Street is also having its number of airings cut from five per week to three.

 

Emmerdale.   ITV had initially confirmed that Emmerdale would continue every weekday at 7pm but alas the schedule has now changed.It will air on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm. Coronation Street will follow at 7.30pm on

Hollyoaks  Despite initially vowing to continue, Channel 4 has made the decision to hold filming. As a result, the number of weekly episodes will be cut from five to three.


The People vs O J Simpson Serial on Netflix – Superb

The Accused

O J Simpson made his mark with athletics while playing running back for the University of Southern California, winning the Heisman Trophy in 1968. O.J. — also known as “Juice” — was signed by the Buffalo Bills, where he played for nine years before being sold to the San Francisco 49ers. After retiring from the NFL in 1979, he also made a success with small acting roles and celebrity friends. In 1994, it was reported that he attended Donald Trump’s wedding to Marla Maples.

The Victims

Nicole Brown Simpson and O.J., who were 12 years apart, met in 1977 and married in 1985. The years they were married were splattered with domestic violence accusations and spousal abuse claims from Brown Simpson against him.

Nicole and Ronald Goldman—a waiter at a nearby restaurant, who was reportedly bringing her a pair of glasses she’d left —were found dead on June 12, 1994.

A great series that delves deep into the trial and the lengths the defence and prosecution go to in order to find him not guilty or guilty.

The First Western Movie Ever Made Was Shot in Lancashire

The Great Train Robbery is considered to be the first western ever made.   WRONG -WRONG -WRONG
The movie that bears the distinction of being the first cowboy ever filmed was shot in 1903. It is twelve minute long and called “The Great Train Robbery”, a silent, was an immediate hit with the public and supposedly paved the way for scores of other films set in the mythical old west.
NOW HERE IS THE TRUTH

Forget Hollywood. The world’s first Western was shot in the countryside near Blackburn Lancashire, new research has suggested.

Kidnapping By Indians was filmed in 1899, 4 years before The Great Train Robbery, which until now was widely seen as the genre’s first film.

Artist Jamie Holman made the link to Lancashire in a study of records by the British Film Institute.

Mr Holman said the information, which showed a filming location close to Blackburn, was “hiding in plain sight”.

The one-minute film is due to be shown in a public screening Blackburn, which was once home to the pioneering film makers Mitchell and Kenyon.

Mr Holman, who has researched links between the cotton industry and film history, said: “Blackburn had links to the Wild West.

“Cotton workers had worked in the USA and they told stories of the wild frontier.

“Mitchell and Kenyon would have been aware of the appetite for the Wild West at the time. Many of the stereotypes are there: the head-dress; the tomahawks.”

This one-minute movie is due to be shown at a public screening in Blackburn, which was once home to film makers Mitchell and Kenyon.
