3 things to watch this weekend: Reese Witherspoon’s spiritual sequel to Big Little Lies

Published

on

The country is slowly opening up. Cafés and restaurants are beginning to open with a maximum of 10 guests. If you happen to be the 11th wheel in your friendship circle and you need something to do this weekend, here is a collection of three shows to keep you entertained all weekend long.

Little Fires Everywhere

What: Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington team up for a polished, binge-worthy family drama. In what might seem like another spiritual sequel to Witherspoon’s Big Little Lies, this drama (based on Celeste Ng’s novel of the same name) deals with heavy subjects of race, class and privilege. Witherspoon plays flawless journalist Elana who lives with her seemingly do-no-wrong children and husband Bill (Joshua Jackson). Washington plays a mysterious artist who, along with her daughter, topples the picture-perfect life of Elana. It’s big stars giving tremendously good performances. Once you start this show, you won’t be able to stop until the dramatic (and dare we say controversial) ending.

When: All episodes drop tonight (Friday).

Where: Amazon Prime Video.

Emergence

What: Did you know it’s been 15 years since Lost premiered? Nine’s new US series, Emergence, has been described as Lost meets This Is Us, and is a fresh take on the mythology-driven, sci-fi genre series. Like Lost, Emergence features a terrific cast and a begins with a plane crash. Fargo‘s Allison Tolman plays Jo, a police chief who is summoned to the site of a plane crash. Inside the wreckage, she finds a young girl who is suffering from amnesia. It isn’t long before Jo discovers that this young girl isn’t ordinary and this was no ordinary plane crash.

When: Right now. Every episode of the first season is available to stream.

Where: Stream now for free on 9Now.

High Town

What: Jerry Bruckheimer has produced many crime dramas over the years, including CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Without A Trace, but this new crime-drama is a step above all of those. This new eight-part crime series is set on the gay hotspot of Provincetown, on the tip of Cape Cod, and follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, intertwined with an unfolding murder investigation. The series is chock-full of racy lesbian sex and more than its fair share of gratuitous stripteases. It’s as sexy as Underbelly and as dark and mysterious as the first season of True Detective. A must watch.

When: Watch new episodes every Sunday.

Where: Only on Stan.

Nine Entertainment Co (the publisher of this website) owns and operates the streaming service Stan.

The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever: A look back at Jason Mesnick

Published

on

The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons takes us back to Jason Mesnick’s season!

The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever is going down memory lane as we revisit Jason Mesnick’s infamous season. For those who watched Arie Luyendyk’s season and saw his last minute decision to break up with Becca Kufrin and go with runner-up Lauren Burnham will find Jason’s season a bit too familiar.

Technically, Arie pulled a Jason Mesnick, the man who kicked off the “I think I want to be with the person I just broke up with, not the one I proposed to” move. And with that, I’d like to get you hyped for the look back at Jason’s season on the next episode of The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever.

Pulling a Mesnick

Jason Mesnick was the lead all the way back in The Bachelor Season 13 (feels like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it?). His season started off as any other did with your usual dose of Bachelor drama, fights, and heartbreak. But the true heartbreak didn’t come until the season came to an end and Jason found himself in a very unfortunate predicament.

Initially, Jason proposed to Melissa Rycroft, and broke up with Molly Malaney. But in the moments that followed, it became very clear to Jason that he had made a grave mistake. Prepare yourself to see the iconic balcony scene–it’s a doozy!

A brutal After the Final Rose special

The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever will surely make us relive the moment Jason Mesnick decided to break things off with Melissa–on live television. I think we can credit the producers for making that happen.

Melissa learned from Jason that he wanted to be with Molly instead and had to endure a breakup on live television as her fiancé went off with his runner-up. It was brutal.

10 years later…

A decade has passed since that awful moment, and it seems like everyone is living out their happily ever after. Jason and Molly are still married with two kids (their daughter and Jason’s son from a previous marriage), and Melissa is married with three kids. So, yay for happy endings!

However, having to rewatch that ending is not going to be fun for anyone, and I’m sure that they will all be stopping by The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever to share what life has been like since that awkward breakup.

Next: The Bachelorette: Hannah Ann Sluss spotted on set

Jason Mesnick had no idea he’d start a trend in Bachelor Nation (we’re looking at you Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Peter Weber!).

Did you watch Jason’s season and cringe watching it unfold? Share your comments below!

Published

on

Alan Menken has done it all. He recently won his first Emmy award, making him the 16th person to ever achieve the EGOT, winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award. He’s also behind some of the most memorable and iconic music ever written. But never let it be said that writing those songs is easy. Case in point, Aladdin‘s iconic, and Oscar-winning song, “A Whole New World” Was tentatively titled “The World at My Feet” until Menken’s lyracist decided that Disney lone songs shouldn’t be about feet.
