Last month AmazonStudios uploaded 5 primetime and 5 kid pilots on Prime Instant Video for viewers' comments and responses. This month viewers that responded to the co-programming challenge will see the fruits of their labor. Amazon is sending 4 pilots to series. The series are:The After (a sci-fi from X-Files creator Chris Carter), Transparent (a semi-autobiographical based on writer Jill Solloway), Bosch (a cop show based on a book series by Michael Connolly), and Mozart In The Jungle (a dramedy about Orchestral musicians). Some critics are saying, Transparent is the best of the series lot. Time will tell if Amazon's series picks will have legs.
"On The Shoulders of Giants" is a great film to see in light of recent developments in the NBA. The film was written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (also the executive producer) and Anna Waterhouse. The film was released on February 11, 2011.
In Memoriam There are those in the media who are gripping about the "stars" or well know performers who were left out of Oscars 2018 " In Memoriam ". We think the focus was on the behind the scenes people and lesser known performers who also contribute the magic of making movies. Lots of attention was devoted in the media to the passing of Adam West (we went on endlessly in social media about West) as we grew and Glen Campbell , but the award show is being slammed for not including them. We ask, how much attention did the media give to the people who were included?
