Ever see a geodesic dome home? You know, those sphere-like homes made from a rather complex network of triangles? You’ve got R. Buckminster Fuller, or “Bucky,” to thank for that. Born July 12, 1895, Fuller was an early green architect whose primary passion was humanitarianism. He felt the main two problems in the world were homelessness and hunger, and worked his entire life to find simple, economical solutions to them. One example of this is his Dymaxion House, a pre-fab, round structure supported by poles. The home was heated and cooled by natural means, and its shape minimized heat loss and required fewer materials to construct than a typical home, making it environmentally friendly and affordable. Fuller worked on this project after World War II, when there was a housing shortage in the U.S. Unfortunately, although thousands of Americans eagerly placed orders, funding problems caused Fuller to cancel the project. It was after the Dymaxion House fiasco that he developed the geodesic dome, which quickly caught the attention of the American government because it was lightweight yet strong, and could be quickly assembled — perfect housing for soldiers stationed overseas. He made thousands for the U.S. Army, and many others became homes, which were extremely energy-efficient thanks to the design; a dome’s spherical structure allows air and energy to freely circulate, which means heating and cooling occurs naturally. Fuller lived in one himself in Carbondale, Illinois, where he taught in the Design Department at Southern Illinois University. https://www.instagram.com/p/BWdgkPZl6zt/

Imagine if all the metals, factories, man power, and organization of the military was used to empower human beings rather than prepare for their annihilation. All the fundamental necessities of life including food, water, shelter, energy, transportation, could be ubiquitously accessible to everyone on earth, with high efficiency and sustainability. The technical means of this are already here. This could usher in a new level of freedom and possibility never before experienced in history. No longer would humanity waste most of it’s effort on simply trying to survive, but rather to fully explore its previously hindered and vastly unrealized potential.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Mary Kills People' Star Caroline Dhavernas Embraces the Bizarre

Caroline Dhavernas, star of Lifetime’s Mary Kills People, has always been a fan of the unusual.

The Canadian actress – who sunk her teeth into characters like Jaye Tyler on the short-lived whimsical dramedy Wonderfalls and Dr. Alana Bloom on the poetic psychological horror-thriller Hannibal – is eagerly awaiting Showtime’s upcoming Twin Peaks revival. “I can’t wait,” the 38-year-old exclaims giddily over the phone during an early morning chat in April. “I’m beside myself. I don’t understand why I’m not a part of that show.”

Study Dhavernas’ resume and you’ll see why. As the aforementioned roles indicate (both notably with frequent collaborator Bryan Fuller, whose next project is Starz’s American Gods adaptation), the Montreal, Quebec native has a knack for leaning into the quirky, the peculiar and the just plain weird – and she’s absolutely OK with that.

“I like when things are completely absurd. I love that people will step away [from] what has already been done and pre-chewed. I like when people take risks,” Dhavernas says. “I want to be able to challenge myself and challenge the viewer and challenge the back of our mind – the subconscious mind. I’m a big fan of Twin Peaks and any show that will fall into that type of dream-like weird stuff.”

Her new series, the six-part Mary Kills People, could classify as “weird,” though not in the Twin Peaks sense. In the Lifetime drama, Dhavernas plays Dr. Mary Harris, a single mother and ER doctor who helps people suffering from terminal illness by illegally ending their lives with assisted suicide. It’s a real-life topic that has been polarizing, though Dhavernas admittedly had difficulty comprehending why a show with such a premise could be seen as provocative.

“I didn’t quite see it as controversial when I first read it, [but] when I saw it marketed that way, I realized that it was because it’s a very sensitive issue for many people,” she recalls, noting that it recently became legal in Quebec for patients to seek physician-assisted dying.

“All sorts of characters [on our show] have different opinions on the matter. Mary certainly feels that people should have the right to choose; other characters don’t feel that way,” Dhavernas says. “When I saw the first episode at home with my buddies, we started talking about assisted dying and it was a great way to start a conversation – if that happens in many households, then good.”

Mary Kills People doesn’t pick a side; instead, it digs its heels into Mary’s double life and her gradual downfall with a heavy helping of drama, a splash of sexiness (there’s a hookup or two in the first two episodes) and a dash humor sprinkled throughout (see: Mary’s unique friendship with her partner-in-crime, Des).

“The writers set a really cool tone for it because it could’ve been a very depressing subject matter, but they found a way to give it a lot of meaning and to add a bit of humor. It’s a fun show even though we have moments that are beautiful and dark and deep,” Dhavernas notes. “As an actor, that’s what you’re looking for: different layers, different nuances and gray zones – and Mary is certainly filled with her own contradictions and complexities.”

Early on, Mary meets Joel (Beauty and the Beast’s Jay Ryan), who seeks her out for her services. He’s unlike any other patient she’s helped before, in that he’s attractive, mysterious and has a morbid humor about his upcoming death. In ET’s exclusive sneak peek from the first episode, Mary and Joel’s first meeting is fraught with tension – the good kind, of course.

“There’s this very strong, sexual connection there. When he says 'I’m going to die, can you make it happen faster?’ It’s that banter that she really gets,” Dhavernas says with a chuckle, though there’s more to Joel than meets the eye. “She doesn’t really have time for her love life and her sexuality, and he’s just there and they get each other.”

For Dhavernas, the “compact” first season – which aired in Canada earlier this year – was beneficial. “I liked that we shot for three months [in Toronto] and then after that, I went back to traveling and promoting the show, but having a bit of a life as well,” she explains. It’s something Dhavernas has learned to prioritize in her life, as she’s gotten older.

“I don’t really think ahead because in this business, there is so little control over the parts that I have access to,” she says when asked about roles she’s still reaching for, mentioning “crazy talented” TV mind Fuller as someone she’s happy to be associated with.

“He has that capacity to imagine you and takes pleasure in seeing you do the exact opposite of what he’s seen you do before,” Dhavernas praises. “That is so rare in this business.”

Mary Kills People premieres Sunday, April 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.

TVLINE | So, your final shot of Will and Hannibal is the two of them embracing and going over the cliff together. In the first two seasons, their relationship — or the possible romance between them — was mostly between the lines. In the last few episodes of Season 3, though, it started to feel a little more like, “The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Sociopaths in Love.” We’ve had Bedelia asking Will if he aches for Dr. Lecter. Will and Hannibal’s “goodbye chat” felt like a breakup. To me, it’s all seemed more overtly romantic, and I just wonder if that’s what you’ve been trying to project.

[Fuller] It felt like we had to s–t or get off the pot, ultimately, because there had been so much going on between these two men that when Will asks, “Is Hannibal Lecter in love with me?” it is very much about death and the romance between these two men. There is a quality to connections that go above and beyond sexuality. You can have this intimate connection with somebody that then causes you to wonder where the lines of your own sexuality are. And we didn’t quite broach the sexuality. It was certainly suggested, but the love is absolutely on the table. There is love between these two men, and confusion between these two men. We had to articulate it, and the idea for a [potential] Season 4 was an interesting continuation of that, as well as a subversion of it at the same time. So it’s strange to look at [this week’s episode] as a finale, because part of me believes that the most interesting chapter of Will Graham’s story is yet to be told.

I don't think we have any hope of a renewal/pick up anymore. The actors were released from their contracts, Fuller has other project, NBC cancelled it, Netflix/Hulu can't pick it up because of the Amazon deal. I'm sad to think it's really over.

This is why I hate people spreading those click bait articles, because THIS is what happens.

The actors being released from their contracts isn’t the end of the world - they can write new ones. None of them hate the show, they aren’t desperate to get away. They do alot because they want to. Every indication is that it is a very fun and productive atmosphere made up of people with the same or similar vision. hugh and mads are super free rn, they have no other commitments and they aren’t going to jump on the first tv that catches their fancy and lock themself to a different company for 5 years. They were ‘giddy’ at the season 4 idea, they’re probs going to want to make sure they can do it. Essentially, if actors can make the time (which by all indication they will want too) it’ll be totally chill.

Bryan Fuller had planned to do another series alongside hannibal when it started, he planned to show run BOTH, he’s not show running american gods (as far as I know) just writing. This isn’t damning for hannibal at all. On a normal schedule, they would begin writing season 4 in september/october, lets assume this renewal issue is going to extend that, he has the time to do both. 

No one said anyone else can’t pick it up because of Amazon, amazon can either make it easy or hard, rumour has it they’re making it hard, doesn’t make it impossible. When was something legal ever easy? fucking never.

(This is all repeats of stuff I’ve already said like 50 times today but if I need to say it again I will.)
