Hey, What’s Up With Topher Grace?

Our beloved Gabe and Kelly over at Videogum (RIP) used to keep us updated on the happenings of America’s sweetheart Topher Grace. In the absence of that classic column, I have no idea what is up with Topher Grace. So imagine my surprise to see him when I sat down for the first episode of The Hot Zone, the National Geographic miniseries about Ebola!

The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies stars as a doctor who identifies a problem with a tissue sample, while Topher Grace downplays her concerns. Has anyone watched the show? I might check out the second episode if nothing else comes across my radar but it wasn’t mandatory viewing in my opinion. It’s a little gross and I don’t need to be having nightmares about Ebola. NPR offers a quick fact-check of the show’s depiction events.

What shows is everyone watching these days? Any re-watched planned for the summer?

    I recently rewatched The Terminator and it was perfect. PERFECT. So I got super psyched to rewatch T2… and let me tell you, turns out, Teen Me was not right in his assessment that T2 was superior. T2 is QUITE uneven, with lots of draggy parts where the characters sit around fretting about Fate. And building a Relationship with the robot. Eesh. You guys, rewatch T, then do chores while T2 plays in the background.

    I almost started Chernobyl this week. I might yet. I almost miss the USSR. They were nuts but right now, I worry that we are more nuts. So maybe this radioactive nightmare will make me feel better.

      Oh I’ve been meaning to check out Chernobyl, let me know what you think if you watch it.

      True story, my colleague was discussing Chernobyl with a girl on his team, and she was saying how awful the story was, and he was like, “I know, can you believe it was able to happen?”, and she was shocked and appalled to learn it was a true story (and was def old enough to know better) I’m looking forward to watching it.

      • taoreader says:

        HOW does someone old enough to know about Chernobyl not know about Chernobyl? Was she raised in a cult maybe?

        • gnidrah says:

          HAHAHA I will find out, look out for any giveaway signs!

          (I got told off for being mean when I told someone else this story, so apologies if anyone thought I was mean! I do think perhaps Chernobyl was a bigger deal here though, being geographically that bit closer, so I do think she has less of any excuse)

        • taoreader says:

          Well, it’s a lot meaner to suggest someone was raised in a cult because they never heard about Chernobyl. I make no apologies.

          I remember it being absolutely plastered all of the media in the US for a long time. It was only six years after Three Mile Island happened, and people were really freaked out, so it does surprise me that someone wouldn’t know. You know, even it you thought it was a sign of The End Times.

        • hotspur says:

          Being mean is important. We must be mean to those who deserve it, or they will never learn. I will bet you a zillion dollars/Euros/Brexitpounds that the people who caused Chernobyl did so because no one was mean to them when it mattered.

    • taoreader says:

      I remember seeing T2 in the theatre and getting hit with that nuclear nightmare scene where everyone sort of melts into skeletons and thinking holy shit this is downright frightening but this is entertainment, right? It was all “Don’t build that circuit thing or THIS IS HOW WE ALL WILL DIE.”

      And I agree, Terminator is perfect.

    I just finished Greyzone and BLEEP, that was good. Actually almost impossible to watch in some places, it was so tense. I was slightly disappointed by one thing that happened, and one thing that didn’t happen (basically there were two cliches that I thought were on the horizon, and I wanted one of them, but I got the other one), but it did not take away from how good it was overall.

    I’ve started watching a Dutch series next called The Adulterer, which I think is about seven or eight years old, but just popped up for us so let’s see. I liked ep one! Guess what it is about? I bet you can’t!

    Started watching The British Spy, I think that’s what it’s called? Anyway, super great suspense spy-type thriller show.
