Lucifer Renewed for Season 3 at Fox
By Matt Webb Mitovich

Here’s some hella good news: Fox’s Lucifer has earned an early Season 3 renewal.

As such, it is only the second Fox drama to secure a pickup for the 2017-18 TV season, following the mighty Empire‘s recent Season 4 order. (On the comedy front, both The Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers are locked in for next season.)

“Lucifer is one of those rare shows that starts strong out of the gate, and just keeps getting better and better,” said Fox Broadcasting entertainment chief David Madden in a statemament “Tom [Ellis], Lauren [German] and the entire cast have really made these characters three-dimensional, and the production team – Jerry [Bruckheimer], Len [Wiseman], Jonathan [Littman], Joe [Henderson] and Ildy [Modrovich] — is one of the best in the business.”

Lucifer opened its sophomore run with 4.4 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating, and for the season has quite steadily hovered around 3.8 mil and a 1.1 (which is precisely what it’s winter finale posted). With those numbers, the supernatural dramedy builds on lead-in Gotham‘s average audience (3.5 mil) while matching its demo number.

Following this protracted midseason break, Lucifer resumes Season 2 on Monday, May 1, when the murder of an up-and-coming guitarist causes MIA Lucifer to resurface – with a new mystery woman on his arm. Meanwhile, Charlotte realizes she may have found a way to finally get the fam back to Heaven.

What are your thoughts on teen wolf? especially writing wise? I have stopped watching regularly around 3b and I wasn't too convinced by what I've seen here on tumblr about the rest of the episodes, in particular 6x10...

i will always have a special place in my heart for the characters i love that the show gave me. i still blog about teen wolf, i write fic, and i enjoyed s1-3a. saying that, i don’t particular enjoy what the show became, or look back on the experience i had as a fan with much nostalgia (i think we were v much used and abused as a fandom online, for sure). i love my part of fandom, though.

short answer about the writing… it was terrible because

1) there was a complete lack of planning and follow through

2) we love this idea/actor/theme for 30 seconds but oops now we don’t

3) they completely misused their social media as a way to a) explain away/correct plot holes in their own writing and b) encourage viewers to watch a show they implied to be many things that it turned out to… not be any of

long answer

Artemi “Blackhawks Magazine” Interview Transcription

I was asked to either post pictures of/transcribe the Artemi Panarin interview in Blackhawks Magazine; I opted to transcribe it so you can actually read it!  I was afraid the pictures would be unclear.


Artemi Panarin came to Chicago from far away and has made it in a big way.  The Russian rocket became an instant fit with the Blackhawks, endearing himself to fans and teammates.  Panarin is still learning to speak English, but here, through an interpreter, he conveys how advanced he is at life and hockey.


You are a star in Chicago after only a few months.  Based on what you’ve accomplished so far with the Blackhawks, are you a star back home?

I don’t feel that I am a star in Chicago.  I would like to be, but not yet.  There are a lot of stars with the Blackhawks.  I am an OK player.  I’ve been good at times.


All right.  Now that you’re an OK player in Chicago, do they follow you back in Russia?

I come from a very small town.  Korkino.  Friends and family followed me when I played in Russia for a few years, and yes, now they can maybe watch some of the Blackhawks games if they are on television.  They would have to get up early in the morning.  In Russia, a lot of people follow the Russian players who are over here.


Do you ever get homesick? 

I miss family and friends, of course.  My mother and father do not live together; they are separated.  I am very close to my grandfather and grandmother.  My grandfather taught me a lot about how to play.  He played once, not at the highest levels.  Maybe they will come to Chicago for the playoffs.  I basically left home when I was 10 to pursue hockey.  So I have been by myself for a while.  No problem.  Sometimes it is good to be alone.  Sometimes it is good to have solitude.  That gives me time to go over things, to think things over.  I live by myself, but I’ve met some good people, including of course my teammates.


Do you cook for yourself?

Oh, no.  Oatmeal in the morning for breakfast.  But for lunch or dinner, I usually go out to eat.


You certainly look like you’re happy in a completely new environment, whether you’re playing hockey or off the ice.

I try to have fun all day, every day.  Chicago is very nice.  Lots of nice people, lots of nice restaurants.  There is one not far from the United Center.  Red Square.  I can go there and pretty much order for myself, whatever I feel like.


What are your impressions of the Blackhawks and Chicago since you arrived last summer?

I came here with high expectations.  I heard so many good things about the city and the Blackhawks.  So I was expecting this to be a place where I would like to play hockey, and I have not been disappointed.


Let’s talk about that.  Stan Bowman, the vice president and general manager of the Blackhawks, says he and his staff began taking a long, hard look at you just over a year ago.  But so did a half-dozen other NHL teams.  Why did you pick the Blackhawks?

I heard about the way they play and saw some of how they play.  They play a nice style, the way I like to play.  Skate, play smart.  I like smart.  I like to play with the puck.  So do they.  Good hockey.  What I thought it would be like is what it is like now.


Bowman said a couple of his scouts, Mats Hallin and Ryan Stewart, were instrumental in the process, plus Barry Smith, the Blackhawks director of player development, who had coached in St. Petersburg before you played there.

Yes, we talked quite a bit.  They were very positive that the Blackhawks and Chichago would be right for me.


You certainly didn’t pick the Blackhawks because of money.  Bowman signed you to a two-year contract at the maximum entry-level salary ($925,000), which is all you could have gotten anywhere in the NHL.  He also said if you had stayed with St. Petersburg of the Kontinental Hockey League, you could be making three times that.

No, it was not about the money.  I thought it was time for me to see if I could make the NHL.


You were not drafted by any NHL team.  Was it because you were thought to be too small?

Too small?  I don’t know.  Maybe.  But here I am. (Smiling.)


According to Bowman, your contract included a clause that if you weren’t on the Blackhawks roster by December, you would be free to return to Russia.  There would be no minor leagues for you.

Yes, but I was confident that I could make it in the NHL.  I could have gone back to Russia if I didn’t make it, but I wasn’t really thinking about that.


Recently, you lost your frequent interpreter, Viktor Tikhonov, who was picked up on waivers by the Arizona Coyotes.

A good man.  He helped me a lot with the language and with getting used to being in Chicago.  He’s a good player, too.  I hope he does well with his new team.  Also, I have become friendly with a good family in Chicago, Andrew Aksyonov and his wife, Yulia.  They picked me up at the airport when I got here and I spend time with them.  We are good friends.


You’ve obviously hit it off with Patrick Kane, your linemate, on and off the ice.  You’re taking English lessons on Skype, but Patrick says he thinks you actually understand what he’s talking about a lot of times.

(Laughs.)  There are some sayings, some expressions, that I have picked up in the locker room, being around him and the other guys.  I don’t think I will say them all here.  But we do have a way of communicating.  Or maybe we’re just pretending that we understand each other when we really don’t.  (Laughs again.)


If you were to take Patrick for a classic Russian mean–if you haven’t done so already–what would it be?

Borscht.  Have to have borscht.  Maybe Russian ravioli.  Like dumplings.  Dough on the outside, meat inside.  Good.  I haven’t taken him for Russian dinner yet.  He took me to dinner not long ago.  Italian.  He paid.  I like the food in America.  But not fast food.  I don’t do fast food.


How about American beer?  Hockey players everywhere like beer, right?

Don’t like beer.  Ever.  Don’t drink at all during the season.  Summer, vodka.


What do you think of Patrick as a player?

One of the best in the NHL.  He is great to play with.  We kind of have a mutual understanding of what we’re supposed to be doing on the ice.  And my fellow Russian, Artem Anisimov, our center.  I can’t say anything negative about him either.  He does everything well.  He’s another great player.  So many great players on this team.


But you’re only OK?

I’m OK.


The KHL is generally regarded as the second-best league in hockey.  What’s the difference between the KHL and NHL?

There are a lot of good players in the KHL and good teams.  And there is good support.  When I played in St. Petersburg, the building was full.  But not full like Chicago.  And in the NHL, there are more good players, more good teams than anywhere.  KHL is good quality, but not like NHL.  The game here is faster.


Why do you think the fans in Chicago have taken to you so intensely?  They love you.

Maybe some of them do; I don’t know if they all love me.  But if I get excited, I show it.  Maybe some people like that.  Part of my job is to entertain.  We’re here to have run, right?  The atmosphere for hockey in Chicago, it’s exciting.  Loud.


What other Russian players do you admire?

Pavel Datsyuk, Evgeni Malkin, Alex Ovechkin and Ilya Kovalchuk, who I played with in the KHL.  Now I am friendly with Vladimir Tarasenko, who plays in St. Louis.


Head Coach Joe Quennville, apparently, was the one who nicknamed you “Breadman.”  Do you know why?

Because my name sounds like that restaurant: Panera Bread.  I haven’t eaten there yet.  I have gone there for tea.  Lately the coach is just calling me “Bread.”


How does Coach Q communicate with you?

When I came here, he told me, “Shoot the puck.”  When I don’t play well, I can see the look on his face.  He doesn’t say anything.


With the strong start you had this season, a lot of experts are already touting you as a possible winner of Rookie of the…

(Without interpreter) 24!


Wait a minute.  You just said that without an interpreter.  You understood where I was going with that question.

(With interpreter) I’m 24.  I played a few years in the KHL.  I don’t think of myself as a rookie.  It’s my first season in the NHL, but not my first season.


All the guys say you’re funny and have a great sense of humor.  How is this possible if only one other teammate, Anisimov, can understand Russian?

Me, funny?  Maybe it’s something they see in my face when I’m smiling or laughing.  I laugh at something I say, they think it’s funny, and then maybe they laugh, even though they really don’t know what I’m saying.


Above your locker, you have a religious icon that you often look to and touch.

I am religious.  Orthodox Christian.  My grandfather and grandmother, a lot of it came from them.


You mentioned enjoying solitude on occasion.  Do you think a lot about hockey when you are by yourself?

Sometimes.  If I have a good game, I don’t think too much about it.  If I have a bad game, I think about it.  I am hard on myself.  I am a critic of myself.  I am harder on myself than anybody else is.  Sometimes the mind goes too fast.  You have to clear it.  When things are not going well, like some of the guys told me earlier this year, it is good to just relax.  Sometimes you think you made a bad play.  Then you look at the film, it wasn’t that bad.


Girlfriend?

Nyet.  Single.


What would you rather do? Go to practice or sit down for an interview?

Practice.  Especially if the interview is a long one.  If the interview is too long, I don’t like that as much as a short one.


Is this interview running too long?

I would prefer going to practice.  This interview, it’s not so short anymore.  It’s going longer than practice.  (Laughs.)

Sorry girls but it’s time to say it. Riverdale turned into a pile of horse shit. Wow! I said it! The dialogue was all forgivable in the beginning but now that the storylines are completely lagging and we aren’t even a full season in? A mess lmaoooo. It started off so strong too…twin peaks it is NOT.

sherlysthougths  asked:

Oh good lord that second episode! So much to say, I do feel bad that Glims and Trixie were flanderised a bit, but the message was nice and we got to hear a great shipping line from Trixie "That's the Starlight I love" Seriously, its like they're just laying it out for us!

YUP I mean how can you help the children show for exaggerating things, but I think it was a great episode and the season is starting pretty strong! 

And I truly think Startrix is meant to be, this episode was on trust and emotions for goodness sake

I don't think Allura is adult coded. Whoops.

I keep seeing this as an argument against ships and I always find it disagreeable to her development and character more so than ships. Of course it’s a matter of looking at it personally, but I see her as being in her late teens like the rest of them.

Yes, she’s mature. Yes, she’s strict. But she has never struck me as that making her more of an adult. She was raised within an advanced and thriving culture and from her mannerisms to her speech, even the way she reacts to situations, it’s evident she was raised to be diplomatic. She’s a princess. Her upbringing and culture are very different. Royalty leads to high expectations and from her past comments, that includes training in battle from an early age. Just as well, she was suddenly thrusted into a vicious and bloody war that cost her the lives of everyone she loved and lost everything she’d always known. Her whole world was ripped from her out of someone’s selfishness. She didn’t even get to choose on her own whether or not she would stay to fight. Then she wakes up surrounded by strangers and only Coran and the mice have survived. And the first thing she has to do is rally the earthlings to fight the war handed down to her by her father’s death. She literally has the universe on her shoulders. She’s thrown back into war and basically becomes the commander of a small band of rebels. There’s no enjoyment, no breaks. She’s too used to this pattern. She grows up fast. She’s at war.

Secondly, her physique I’ve always held as being true to her Altean heritage. She’s tall, muscular, and broad with slight curves. She’s around the same height as Lance and Keith, maybe even a bit taller. King Alford was a lot taller than her as well, as is Coran. Her build and height are true to the fact that Alteans are some tall fine ass aliens. Teen girls can be huge af like I know some girls rockin some badass Amazon height. That’s good shit. Here physical build does not necessarily mean she’s older. She’s just bigger.

Recently in season 2, Allura starts to develop. We slowly see this strong and strict character show a near childlike side. There were very tiny hints of it in season 1, like her gossiping about the Paladins and getting into food fights and having fun. Now we see her losing her temper, making irrational decisions, wanting to goof off a little bit. She wants to be entertained and shop because she’d “love something sparkly”, a comment that is almost like a teen girl begging her parents to let her go to the mall with her squad. She even pouts when Coran says no. She loves the show the mice put on and on her own is even a bit goofy in nature. The paladins seem surprised by this before Keith asks about Shiro and muh boi, Space Cow. Then we get the whole Keith/Allura mini arc (bcuz honestly the seasons are rly short); we see her battle her thoughts on the Galra in more ways than one and each time she reacts not only diplomatically, but emotionally. She hasn’t had time to grieve or think.

Then she has to.

And she handles it by giving him the silent treatment? Girl, what grade are you in? She acts hella shady (and I don’t blame her though i totally feel for Keith) and she finally gets time to think. And when she finally confronts him, she’s at her most are state. Keith sees her pain, he sympathizes, and it’s hard for both of them. And she takes the leap and acts with maturity and understanding. For a moment, it’s just the two of them being people. Its personal. Its the most personal thing she’s had to do since she said goodbye to her father. Its a step forward. She’s growing naturally now. She’s starting to grow up on her own at her own pace. And she has a lot more to do.

After season 2, I came away with the idea that she’s around her late teens. Is she tall? Yeah. Is she mature. Yes, but we all know sometime the situation calls for it. Sometimes our lives force us to grow up fast. Maybe I feel this way because I can relate to that and our personalities are similar. Who knows; but those are my reasons. For me, saying she’s adult coded takes away from her character; she’s a bright, beautiful, young girl affected and developed from the world around her. Its tragic but amazing. It shouldn’t be dismissed as her being an adult. Kids can be insightful and brilliant if they get the opportunity.

You’re free to think differently, of course. To each their own.
