Being swallowed by a research vortex

It’s great, the mystery of the TV-internet maelstrom that sucks us into a whirlwind of useless and captivating searches while we watch our favorite series.


During the fifth season of The crownpause, we disappear into Google or Wikipedia, which spits out a packet of information about the year the royal yacht was built Britannia (from 1952 to 1953) or about the hierarchical position of Prince Philip’s “very good friend”, Penelope Knatchbull (she is Countess Mountbatten of Burma).

We all do, admit it. We stop listening for the slightest microdetail that is rolled up and, boom, we fall into a bottomless pit, a rabbit hole in English (rabbit hole). He played what, Jeremy Allen White, before cooking (delicious) steak sandwiches at Bear on Disney+? answer: in Shameless (No regrets), where he played Lip Gallagher.

And the fall into the Reddit bases begins. A simple one hour episode of dragon house thus becomes a pre-university course of two hours and thirty minutes on the influence of cursed kings of Maurice Druon in the construction of the neomedieval universe of George RR Martin.

The vortex/bottomless pit swallowed me again on Sunday night when the penultimate episode of the excellent white lotus (the white lotus) in Super Ecran and Crave. Like a Monica Néron in Second opportunityI frantically googled: the price of a room at the Four Seasons in Taormina where the series was filmed ($2000!), the titles of the Italian pop songs played in the episode (Bye bye!), the name of Jennifer Coolidge’s character in legal blonde (Paulette Bonafonté), and I found an interview with actor Theo James aka Cameron the banker shower bag – where he talks about the penile prosthesis he got in the first episode.

The manager of the White Lotus Hotel, Valentina (played by Sabrina Impacciatore)

He also typed into the search engine: why do the rich vacationers of the White Lotus always eat at the hotel restaurant, when their personal fortune would buy the best tables in all of Sicily? According to Wall Street Journal, which seriously delved into the matter, it is simply a script trick to allow all the characters, customers, visitors and employees of the White Lotus to cross paths at the buffet, on the beach or at the piano bar. It is logical. From a television perspective, at least.

The most interesting research on the white lotus 2 they revolve around theories about the final blow and who will die before the end credits roll. precision here. No, I haven’t seen the last episode of the white lotus 2, that Crave and Super Ecran will broadcast on Sunday at 9:00 p.m., I am as empty as you are.

But I’ve read plenty of juicy hypotheses, including a juicy plausible one about the lost beauty Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge), who’s been sucked into the party entourage of the mysterious Quentin (Tom Hollander).

In the rococo room where Tanya slept with the sexy powdered mobster, there was a photo of Quentin and the straight cowboy from Wyoming he loved so much, long ago, a cowboy who looked uncannily like Greg (Jon Gries), Tanya’s husband. Oh! A bright red dot near the ceiling also indicated that a camera was filming the antics between Tanya and her Italian stud.

This compromising video would surely void any marriage contract between Greg and billionaire Tanya. And it’s not for nothing that Quentin’s (fake) nephew, who took Tanya’s assistant from him party in Palermo, he said that his uncle would soon be rescued. Greg and Quentin have been working together from the beginning to steal Tanya, oh my God! I love this thesis.

One thing is certain, bubbly Daphne (Meghann Fahy) doesn’t die. It is she who discovers the first corpse floating in the sea, we imagine that she would have recognized her husband Cameron, but she could also act as an actress to camouflage her perfect murder, who knows.

Another Potential Killer: The Shy Marathon Runner addicted Ethan (Will Sharpe), who suspects that his girlfriend Harper (Aubrey Plaza) has slept with his friend Cameron. He’s very psycho, our reserved Ethan. Red flag.

My favorite theory involves escort Lucia (Simona Tabasco), who allegedly conspired with her local boyfriend to swindle the entire Di Grasso family, grandfather, father, and son. That would be great.

I loved it the white lotus 2, which was featured with several reading levels, and good news, the HBO channel commissioned a third chapter. Congratulations!

Ken Scott on the small screen

After Xavier Dolan in Club illico, it’s the turn of filmmaker Ken Scott (the great seduction) to switch from the big screen to the small one. According to my moles, the director of starbucks and D’goodbye happiness is preparing a major period miniseries for Bell Media’s Crave platform, which will be filmed in English and French.

The theme: organized crime and the many bank robberies that rocked Montreal in the 1970s. Ken Scott will write the script, as well as be behind the camera. No actor has yet been cast for this secret project, which is produced by KOTV. Now I’m waiting for more reports from my spies, thank you.
