WATCH: Pop TV Drop Teaser Clip For The Final Season Of Schitt’s Creek

The final season of Schitt’s Creek will air in the new year and we are so excited. Pop TV have released a teaser for the upcoming season on their Instagram account. The clip shows the cast dressed in formal attire as they stroll arm in arm past the iconic Rosebud Motel. It was announced earlier this year that the show would return for one more season on January 7th 2020. It’ll consist of 14 episodes packed full of, ‘the heart and humour that has made the series one of the best ever.’ President of Pop TV, Brad Schwartz made a statement: ‘Schitt’s Creek has become a pop culture phenomenon fuelled by the most talented cast…’ ‘And the most passionate fans in all of television.’ He goes on, ‘The final season is sure to be weekly must-watch TV as we see what happens to the Roses.’ ‘We know this final season will deliver even more of the heart and humour that has made the series one of the best ever.’ Meanwhile, the show’s creators Eugene Levy and Dan Levy also released their own statement. ‘It’s not lost on us what a rare privilege it is in this industry to get to decide when your show should take its final bow.’ ‘We could never have dreamed that our fans would grow to love and care about these characters in the ways that you have.’ The famously rich Rose family have known nothing but wealth their whole lives. However, it all takes a turn for the worst when they end up broke. Now all they own is a small backwater town called Schitt’s Creek. Johnny and Moira move to the town and live in a small room at a motel with their spoiled children David and Alexis. We see their world flip upside down as they live without the luxuries from their previous life. The show begs the question, ‘What happens when the rich become poor?’ The first five seasons are available to watch on Netflix now.

A church accidentally printed the lyrics to Tupac's 'Hail Mary' instead of the Latin prayer

A church accidentally printed the lyrics to Tupac’s ‘Hail Mary’ instead of the Latin prayer

18 November 2019, 21:42 | Updated: 18 November 2019, 21:47 An epic copy and paste error leads to a very different sort of Christmas anthem… A reflective, seasonal ‘Ave Maria’, courtesy of 90s star rapper Tupac Shakur: that’s what was on offer in this carol service, courtesy of a spectacular order of service typo. The copy and paste disaster was printed back in 2016, in a programme for a ‘Joy to the World’ concert in Colombo, Sri Lanka. “A Christmas carol service in Sri Lanka has accidentally printed the lyrics of Tupac’s Hail Mary, instead of the prayer”, wrote Twitter user Ravindu Thimantha who attended the carol concert and quickly snapped the editorial error. The ‘Hail Mary’ is a traditional Catholic prayer, asking for the intercession of the Virgin Mary. In music, it is most commonly found in its Latin form, Ave Maria, with famous settings coming from the likes of Franz Schubert and Sergei Rachmaninov, along with Renaissance composers Josquin des Prez and William Byrd. ‘Hail Mary’ is also the title of a song by 1990s rapper Tupac Shakur, who wrote it alongside hip-hop songwriters Young Noble and Kastro. The song depicts desperate prayer in a violent and troubled world. It also contains language not found in your usual festive church service. Instead of the traditional Latin prayer, which translates as ‘Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee’, Tupac’s version asks Mary: ‘Do you want to ride or die?’ After the 2016 tweet went viral, CNN spoke to Father Da Silva, from the Sri Lankan archdiocese where the mix-up happened. He told them that there was an error in downloading and printing the wrong song text. “The page was in the middle of the booklet. When people looked at this page, they saw it before the start of the show. Two people saw it and alerted us to it.” “We are very sorry to say that this happened,” he said.

With millennials trying to ban secret Santa, the Christmas clampdown is truly on its way!

W e had a good run – 1682 years, according to my online Gregorian calendar. But I think we’re all increasingly aware that, along with foie gras, clapping, pork scratchings, flirting, plastic bags and humour, Christmas is going to have to go. It’s inappropriate, for one thing. And I can’t get over the ubiquitousness of that word, as though overnight we’ve become a nation of headmistresses, frowning disapprovingly down at life over our bifocals. But think about it: we were somehow allowed to sneak in Hallowe’en and Guy Fawkes night – despite the refined sugar binges and the gore, the burnings at the stake and PTSD-prompting explosions of pretty pollutants in the atmosphere – but Christmas?

KD (a) Karuppu Durai Movie Review: A loveable journey of the importance of living

KD (a) Karuppu Durai Movie Review: A loveable journey of the importance of living

Madhumitha’s Karuppu Durai, starts with a voice-over by its titular character (Mu Ramaswamy), and the camera roves across the world of the septuagenarian. We are introduced to his village T Kallupatti, his house, and the men awaiting his death. Just when the camera traverses the women of his house, we hear, “Indha pombala pullainga ellam ivlo velai pannitu irukudhunga, indha aambalainga summa irukainga parunga,” subtly pointing at male chauvinism. While female characters spending the majority of their screentime in the kitchen gets normalised in most films, Karuppu Durai takes a pause and makes a statement. Within a few minutes into the film, we realise why we need films like this and why female filmmakers like Madhumitha are important.   Cast: Mu Ramaswamy, Nagavishal Director: Madhumitha   Though the promos and posters of Karuppu Durai are cartoonish, the central crux of the film is a serious one: Death. As a person with rural roots, the very word thalaikoothal (a practice of mercy killing the elderly and bedridden) has always given me nightmares. But the mix of emotions and humour is so perfect here that it made me search for my tissue both to wipe tears of sadness, and in minutes, tears of laughter. When Karuppu Durai is down with coma and the people stretch out their fingers to check for his breath, his mind voice goes, “Adi paavi, iva suruttu pudippaa nu ippo dhaan theriyum!” But the real fun starts when Karuppu Durai meets the adorable chatterbox, Kutty (Nagavishal) and gets re-christened KD. While the former is old, weary, and experienced, the latter is young, naive, and full of energy. The way their contrasts bring them closer and they become each other’s yin and yang reminded me of the classic Poove Poochooda Vaa in more than one instance. While it was young Sundari running away from death in PPV, it is the aged Karuppu Durai here. Madhumitha and Sabarivasan Shanmugam (who has contributed the dialogues and additional screenplay) deserve a huge shout-out for crafting Kutty, a 10-year-old, who has an exceptional sense of humour and understanding of life, and yet, acts his age. It would be a surprise if Nagavishal doesn’t get nominated for the top honours of the country for best-child actor, after such a stunning performance. Be it the scene where he consoles the old man saying, “Unnaiyavadhu ippo venam nu solranga… enna laam porandhappove…” or the multiple instances where he delivers hilarious punch lines like, “Enaku naane TV, naane remote,” Nagavishal shines. I see realism as the biggest strength of Karuppu Durai. Even though the story has a bunch of people waiting for a man to breathe his last, they are not painted in black and antagonised. We get to see their side of the story too. The women in Karuppu Durai’s house lose a significant portion of their life taking care of him in his vegetative state, while the men lose all their wealth to meet his medical expenses. When they say, “Maththavan vasa sol solradha ketu vaazhara vaazhkai sorgama naragama?” you understand they don’t see thalaikoothal as murder and instead consider it as a celebration and way of life.   Karuppu Durai is never short of cute moments and the bucket list the leads make together is just icing on the cake. It is filled with simple yet adorable things any lower-middle-class person would dream of, like travelling in an AC train, wearing a suit, and riding a bike with their best friend in the pillion. I particularly liked how the dream wish of Karuppu Durai gets fulfilled so organically in the story. A good story is remembered for its strong performances and here, even the actors in the shortest roles excel. It was surprisingly pleasant to watch the usually stereotyped Badava Gopi play a soft-spoken priest. Mu Ramaswamy is a powerhouse and nails even the toughest emotions. I wouldn’t call Karuppu Durai an unpredictable emotional drama. The story does turn predictable at points, but whenever it turns, the music of Karthikeya Murthy flows in to engage you. Many times in the film, Karuppu Durai digs into a plate of biriyani forgetting the other burdens of his life. The way he relishes his food makes the mouths of the spectators water and entices them to grab a plate of their own. I see the film as a similar appetiser that encourages us to take a pause, forget all our worries, and relish every single moment of our lives.

Theatre school’s take on Puss in Boots is up to the minute

WITH panto season fast approaching, Henley Children’s Theatre’s production of Puss in Boots at the Kenton Theatre has a twist or two in the tail… The group have been producing pantomimes in the town for 50 years, but always while keeping up with the times. For this year’s show, which runs from December 30 to January 4, director Muffin Hurst has updated the script so that we find the traditional lead male replaced by a girl. At the same time, a rather weedy Pantomime Princess becomes a somewhat feckless Prince Georgeous, and a boy has broken through the ranks to take the role of Puss. The story follows Jesse, who inherits a talking cat and encounters some dopey peasants on her way to win a title and fortune from the Giant Trump. Queenie’s comedic Knights of the Rectangular Table bring some Monty Pythonesque humour to the, er, table — and the savvy Puss helps thwart his nemesis and recapture Carabas Castle. Muffin said: “There are two casts who perform in alternate shows and each is made up of an enthusiastic group of local children, aged three to 16, who delight in bringing energy and happiness to their audience. They will sing, dance and recount their tale, which is suitable for all ages. HCT excel in feelgood entertainment — if you’ve not been before, make sure you get tickets for all the family for fun and laughter at the best value show in town.” Tickets are £14 for adults and £9 for children. To book, call the Kenton Theatre box office on (01491) 575698 or visit www.kentontheatre.co.uk For more information, please email muffin@ henleychildrenstheatre.co.uk

Strictly Come Dancing Blackpool: Motsi Mabuse suffers a hilarious blunder as she MISSES her cue …

Strictly Come Dancing judge Motsi Mabuse suffered a hilarious blunder during Saturday’s Blackpool spectacular as she made her entrance with the rest of the judging panel. The South African dancer, 38, was left in hysterics when she missed her cue to pose with her co-stars after arriving on the dancefloor at the start of the show. Viewers took to Twitter in hysterics to point out Motsi’s blunder, as she laughed along with her fellow judges. At the start of the show, Motsi made her typically dramatic entrance alongside Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel-Horwood and Bruno Tonioli.  Despite heading onto the dancefloor at the correct time, Motsi took her time heading over the panel, and missed the final beat which usually see the judges strike a perfect post for the camera. Luckily Motsi took the blunder in good humour as she pulled a bewildered expression alongside the rest of the judging panel. Viewers took to Twitter to point out the funny mistake, with one joking that she must have been late making it to Blackpool on time. One posted: ‘@MOTSI_MABUSE is my new addiction… absolute queen she is.’ Another added: ‘I love @MOTSI_MABUSE so much and I want to be friends SHE IS EVERYTHING #Strictly.’ A third also posted: ‘What the hell was she doing I’m dying,’ with another tweeted: ‘I thought they lost Motsi on the way?’ Motsi’s blunder came at the start of another jaw-dropping Strictly show in the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, which saw Kelvin Fletcher and Karim Zeroual finish in joint first place on the leaderboard. The pair came perilously close to a perfect score as they each earned 39 points out of 40 for their energetic routines. In a Strictly first, pro Anton Du Beke also earned his first ever ten after 15 years on the show, after dancing an American Smooth with actress Emma Barton. Strictly Come Dancing: The Results air on Sunday 17th November at 7:15pm on BBC One.
