The TreeGhosts : Season 2 Episode 4
Sasappis is between a rock and a hard place in this episode. While he wants to protect the tree for personal reasons, he does lie about its significance, putting Sam in a sticky situation. What was it like getting to work on this storyline?
The TreeGhosts : Season 2 Episode 4
Sasappis tells Sam that the markings on the tree represent the dialects of the Lenape. Do you think the irony is lost on him that his Season 1 episode showed off his storyteller side?
You mentioned the importance of modern Native representation. Was that something you discussed with the Joes for this episode in particular? What was the collaboration process like for this installment?
A stickler for etiquette and maintaining a good reputation, as Alison quickly discovers, Fanny has a hair-trigger temper, which prompts many complaints about modern life. She often tells Alison how to behave as a "lady". It becomes apparent later in series 3 that she only nags the other Button House residents as a way to ignore her own problems, and when there is nothing to be annoyed at she doesn't quite know what to do. It's rare to see her show anything past her rough exterior, although on some occasions she has shown sympathy for others. For example in the episode Perfect Day, in which her traditional views on same-sex marriage are changed once she realizes that if her husband, George, was allowed to marry who he chose, she wouldn't have been killed and she could have married some one who she really loved. She also shows a considerable amount of sympathy for Nicholas in the episode He Came!, she argues that judging him is unfair and that no one knows the events that led to him becoming homeless, since she and her mother almost became homeless at some point.
Earlier this month we reported that Mt. Bachelor will offer cheaper lift tickets for guests who choose to sign a liability waiver. Now the resort is taking a similar approach to season pass prices.
It is expected that many season pass holders and day ticket purchasers will opt to sign the waiver. This is not just because they want to save some money but because they also understand the concept of personal responsibility and the inherent risks of skiing and snowboarding.
On 9 January 2019, in the third episode of the seventh series of the BBC One programme Father Brown, titled "The Whistle in the Dark", the character Professor Robert Wiseman reads a collection of ghost stories by M. R. James and later suggests that the whistle in his possession in the one described in James's "'Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad'".
Although ITV produced four black-and-white adaptations of James's ghost stories between 1966 and 1968, no surviving copies are known to exist. However, a short preview trailer featuring several scenes from the 1968 adaptation of "Casting the Runes" survived and has been shown at cult film festivals. The trailer is also available on Network DVD's Mystery and Imagination DVD set. "Casting the Runes" was again adapted for television in 1979 as an episode of the ITV Playhouse series with Lawrence Gordon Clark directing and starring Jan Francis as the lead protagonist (a man in previous adaptations). It has been released by Network DVD which also includes a 20-minute adaptation of "Mr Humphreys and His Inheritance" (made in 1976 by Yorkshire Television as part of the Music Scene ITV Schools programme) and A Pleasant Terror, a 1995 ITV documentary about James.
Ten of the BBC productions made between 1968 and 2010 (including three episodes of the Christopher Lee readings series) were released on DVD in October 2011 as a five-disc boxed set in Australia by Shock DVD, as The Complete Ghost Stories of M. R. James. A boxed set of the BBC's Ghost Stories For Christmas productions, including all of the M. R. James adaptations, was released in Britain in 2012, and an expanded six-disc set (including Robert Powell's series of readings from 1986, and readings from the BBC's 1980 Spine Chillers series for children) was released in 2013.
Also on 21 December, a series apparently entitled Classic Stories: Tales for Christmas was uploaded to BBC Sounds. The episodes included a reading of "The Mezzotint" performed by Sam Dale and produced by Justine Willett. The provenance of this series is something of a mystery as it appears to never have been broadcast prior to its appearance online.
We're now three episodes deep into season 3 of Donald Glover's "Atlanta," and it's abundantly clear that the series is leaning fully into afro-surrealism with the delightful absurdity of "The Old Man and the Tree." The episode also makes it obvious that the themes presented in the season premiere are going to be the overarching themes of the entire season.
Al spends the majority of the episode getting closer to Fernando. At first, he is impressed by the billionaire's lifestyle and willingness to protect it; however, things turn sour pretty quickly. The two play a poker game with some of Fernando's friends, during which Fernando reveals that he was once visited by the ghost of a naked, soaking wet Black man. He goes on to explain that he and the ghost shared a sort of "deep connection" that resulted in him being covered in the ghost's ectoplasm.
Van's behavior in this episode is a bit odd at first. She (unfortunately) doesn't get a lot of screen time, but what we do see of her raises lots of questions. I suspect her unwitting attendance of the Tupac euthanasia party in episode 2 had a major impact on her in ways we haven't been made privy to just yet. Her characterization in the series thus far hasn't shown her to be a thief or a bully, but at Nando's strange residence, we see her discreetly pocketing nicknacks and casually pushing random (white) people into the pool. She also claims she isn't angry at Earn when he asks, but she does make a point to ignore his call at the end of the episode, opting to continue eating and reading a magazine in peace.
Earn spends most of the episode being courted by a well-intentioned but utterly clueless rich white guy named Will who is sponsoring an aspiring young Black artist named TJ. He asks Earn for investment advice, which is funny since Earn's goal was to get investment advice from him. Specifically, he asks Earn if he should spend even more of his massive fortune by sponsoring upcoming artists in his home, letting them create and live there free of charge. It's a nice idea, but his resident artist is less interested in art and more interested in taking advantage of Will's naivety and goodwill.
The holiday episode of the NBC sitcom finds Carol (Andrea Martin) in a reverse Christmas Carol situation. In the episode, the optimistic mom/intern learns that her Christmas spirit has gone too far and is driving her co-workers at the news station crazy.
"Urban Jungle" is the forty-sixth episode in the TV-series Danny Phantom. A video game of the same name, based on this episode, was also released for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS consoles.
When he touches Tucker, Tucker shivers just like him and he admits that it is indeed weird. Danny dismisses it as sign that he is coming down with a simple seasonal illness, and the trio leaves for school as a trail of cold softly leaves Danny's body and freezes Sam's Venus flytrap, unbeknownst to the trio of friends.
The episode ends with Undergrowth regenerating himself as a tiny little weed, at which Tucker charges with his turbo mower and runs him down, ending the episode with the trio sharing a laugh after stating "That one's on the house" with a smile.
There's not much more to say about this episode, outside of Colonel Maria Clemente being redeemed as a person (she's not entirely career-minded) and Yu managing to make it to his sports festival just in time.The next one, though? Straight-up crystal skulls and Nazis. I can only wonder if this inspired Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

The US is famous, or infamous depending on who you ask, for the many adaptations of BBC original series. The most recent is CBS' reimagining of BBC's 2019 series, Ghosts. Now that CBS' new show is a few episodes in, we have plenty of material to compare and contrast the two versions.
At its core, the CBS' Ghosts hasn't deviated too far from the original's story beats. In the pilot episode, we meet a young married couple who randomly inherits a distant relative's large estate. The kicker, the mansion is infested with ghouls from across each country's history.
The comedy of these characters is different comedic branches of the control freak. Where Captain is a no-nonsense history buff, Issac leans into Jones' flamboyant comedic style. Jones, a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community as well as an advocate, brings a great sense of representation to the character, often hinting at Issac's hidden sexual orientation. Willbond is a writer on the show, along with several other castmates, which leads to an effective and consistent tone throughout the episodes.
These two characters are pivotal to the plot of the show. In each series' pilot episodes, we learn that these two characters are the only ones who can physically touch objects in the real world. While it takes a lot of time and effort, both shows' forward momentum would come to a screeching halt without their character's ability.
Finally, we come to Hudson Thames (What If...) and Laurence Rickard (Peter Rabbit) playing Crash and Headless Humphrey. Both of these characters are only featured in the first few episodes, as the extent of their character is rather limited. Both fill the role of the Headless Horseman archetype for the ghosts. Where Crash is a greaser whose head was severed in a knife fight, Headless Humphrey lost his most important appendage to the executioner. Sadly, these great actors are underutilized, as their rolling heads are used as a shock-gag for the living characters. 041b061a72
