I really hope that we get some BTS or gag reel for BLL at some point. It's so tough to see the abuse scenes and I hope that the atmosphere wasn't too troubled by that. So, to ease my mind a bit I would love to see Alex and Nicole interacting and laughing BTS. Do you think there is a chance for that?

I would love to see that too, but it’s probably doubtful that we’d get to see a gag reel for Big Little Lies. I waited anxiously for the True Blood gag reel every year (you know there was one, it had to be fantastic, and the fans never got to see it - only the cast & crew). I don’t think HBO or other studios get that is what sells Blu-rays anymore, it’s the EXTRAS!! 

I’m not sure we’d get much in behind-the-scenes footage either but I’d be happy if they gave us some virtual tours of the houses. I spotted some pics around the Wright’s house that I would like a closer look at. You can see Alex in them but they are too blurry to fully see. 

Thanks for writing!

Amazing! Virtual Tour of Mordechai and Esther’s Kever in Hamedan, Iran

For centuries, Iranian Jews,  particularly women praying for fertility, venerated the modest brick shrine. The first detailed accounts in the historical record are from Christian tourists in the 1800s and early 1900s. These records, which include outstanding illustrations, descriptions, and even photographs, were recently digitized–and provide a rare glimpse into the condition of the shrine in the past and the particular observances once held there.

One 19th-century visitor describes a marble plaque on the interior dome walls claiming that the structure was dedicated in the year 714 CE (Jewish calendar year 4474) by “?the two benevolent brothers Elias and Samuel, sons of Ismail Kachan.” Other visitors describe rooms covered in pilgrims’ graffiti in various languages as well as darkened by candle smoke; a stork’s nest sitting atop the shrine’s dome; and a prayer area within that was designed to enable worshippers to face the tombs and Jerusalem at same time.

They also recount that notes in Hebrew script were placed near the tombs, similar to how Jewish worshippers often tuck prayer notes into the stones of Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall. For Iranian Jews, who could only reach Jerusalem with great difficulty, the shrine served as a stand-in place at which to pray and weep.

Until the 1970s, the shrine was hidden away in a crowded part of Hamadan, surrounded by houses, and only accessible through a narrow dirt alley. But in 1971, in honor of a national celebration of 2,500 years of Iranian monarchy, the Iranian Jewish Society commissioned architect Yassi (Elias) Gabbay to undertake a renovation.
