‘Stumptown’ Is The Latest Show To Be Cancelled, Partly As A Result Of The Pandemic

Published

on

Back in May, during slightly more optimistic times, ABC gave the renewal order to Stumptown, a novel spin on the crime drama, in which Cobie Smulders played a down-on-her-luck veteran with PTSD and gambling debts who reinvents herself as a private investigator. Alas, it was too good for this world: As per Variety, the show has become the latest to be unexpectedly cancelled, despite the previous promise of more to come.

Among the main reasons? According to one source, the fault partly lies with the pandemic. COVID-19, still raging with no end in sight, has done a ton of damage to television scheduling needs, and some four months after giving the order for more, ABC wound up changing its mind, nixing the second season.

For fans of the show, don’t give up hope. The makers will reportedly be shopping the series around to other networks, hoping one can fit it into their schedule. Other shows that have been axed due to coronavirus complications include I Am Not Okay with This and The Society, both on Netflix.

Along with the always welcome Smudlers, Stumptown — based on the graphic novel series by Greg Rucka — also featured Jake Johnson, Camryn Manheim, and Michael Ealy. May they return for more, ensuring that it won’t end up belonging to the storied “one season and done” gang, populated by the likes of My So-Called Life, Freaks and Geeks, Firefly, and Terriers.

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Curry Review

Published

By

When I say I eat pumpkin everything during the fall, I really mean it. Pumpkin breakfasts! Pumpkin desserts! And now pumpkin curry. Trader Joe’s spicy pumpkin curry is exactly what it sounds like — it’s a simmer sauce that’s a blend of pumpkin spices and curry spices. There’s also a kick to it that doesn’t pack too much heat, so it’s not overwhelming. Overall, this is a Trader Joe’s product that I definitely recommend.

The pumpkin curry is billed as a simmer sauce, so you can use it in any number of dishes. I imagine it would work really well to cook chicken or tofu in, I just conveniently don’t cook chicken or tofu. To try it, though, I warmed it up on the stove and ate it with some rice. The sauce is thick and creamy and warms up in no time at all. You could also easily throw this in a bowl in the microwave to heat it up if you’re into that.

As much as I love pumpkin, I was a little concerned with the blend of pumpkin and curry. Curry is such a strong flavor, and pumpkin is not nearly as potent, so I kinda assumed this sauce would just taste like curry. I was pleasantly surprised to note that it is a very layered sauce that showcases all of the components. While curry is the predominant flavor, the hint of pumpkin really comes through. The sauce also has the standard pumpkin spice ingredients to fill out the pumpkin flavor, along with some sugar and coconut milk. The zing comes from red jalapeño, but it’s very subtle. It provides the heat you might expect from curry, but it only lingers in the back of your mouth. No burning here!

If you’re looking for a tasty fall option for savory dishes, this is definitely a good item to pick up at Trader Joe’s. It also comes in at an awesome price point — less than $3 for a jar, and the jar will go a long way depending on how you use it. I had an entire bowl of rice with plenty of sauce, and I could easily get three or four more meals out of what’s left. If you’re cooking a whole meal for a family, you probably need the entire jar, but again, it’s less than $3.

I absolutely recommend grabbing a few jars of this if you spot it on the shelves at Trader Joe’s. We all know how quickly limited-edition items sell out, and this one will most certainly be no different. Plus, it won’t be on shelves for very much longer anyway, so grab a few jars (or, like, a dozen, no judgment) to keep in the cupboard for the next few months. Come December, you’ll be glad you did!

Shiba Inu Goes Viral For His Love Of Smiling, Especially After Seeing Food (30 Pics)

When it comes to food, the puppy’s owner said he’s not picky at all; Uni loves everything, especially potato sticks.

However, if you too want to give your dog potatoes, American Kennel Club warns that it should be baked or boiled, with nothing added to it. “Potatoes fried in oil, such as french fries or potato chips, or potatoes with butter or salt added to them are not healthy for dogs. If your canine companion has diabetes, he should not be given potatoes because they can cause blood sugar spikes,” the organization wrote.

Uni, however, clearly can and does enjoy eating them.

Look, everyone’s got the right to pass on movies and shows for no reason whatsoever. And there are a ton of legitimate reasons to bail on a show, a movie, or even an entire franchise or an actor’s body of work. That’s good–it’s how the marketplace should work. But human beings are just as likely to nope out for petty, dumb, spiteful reasons.

We asked our fans on Facebook to tell us the absolute weakest reasons they skipped a movie or show. Don’t be too hard on them–pretty much all of them openly admit that their judgment is seriously out of whack, here.
