FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2019 UCW 27 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Wait, what? In Mumbai, India, 27-year-old Raphael Samuel, an apparent fol- lower of antinatalism, is suing his parents (both attorneys) for giv- ing him life. Samuel says he was conceived without his consent, so his parents should pay him for his life. "I love my parents, and we have a great relation- ship, but they had me for their joy and their pleasure," Samuel explained to ThePrint. "My life has been amazing, but I don't see why I should put another life through the rigmarole of school and finding a career, especially when they didn't ask to exist. ... Other Indian people must know that it is an option not to have children, and to ask your parents for an explanation as to why they gave birth to you." [ThePrint, 1/30/2019] Awesome! Exterminators were called to the Rogers County (Oklahoma) courthouse on Feb. 4 after an at- torney appeared in a third-floor courtroom with bed bugs fall- ing out of his clothing. "Hard to imagine someone doesn't know ... bed bugs are crawling all over them, certainly in abundance," remarked Sheriff Scott Walton to KJRH TV. Courthouse officials met and decided to close the building at noon until extermina- tors could eliminate the pests. "I was told the individual that had them also shook his jacket over the prosecutor's files," Walton said. The buggy attorney, how- ever, seemed unfazed by his parasitic companions, and it was not clear who would pay for the extermination. [KJRH, 2/5/2019] Recurring theme It's happened again. In Fairhope, Alabama, 2-year-old Ezra Ingersoll visited Rotolo's Pizzeria with his family for dinner and game-room fun on Jan. 4. Soon, his sister alerted mom Kelsey that Ezra was in the claw machine. Ezra, hoping to get a toy, had crawled through the opening, but the flap inside wouldn't swing the other direc- tion, so he was stuck. AL.com reported that police and firefight- ers responding took the machine apart to free the tyke, who re- ceived a free toy for his trouble.

Question: Just finished watching "McGyver" and Jack (George Eads) said good-bye to everyone at the end, going on an Army mission. Is he gone from the show? If so, why? — Rebecca Matt Roush: Lots of questions about this, although it was widely reported late last year that the actor asked to be let out of his contract, with reports noting that Eads wanted out to be able to spend more time away from the Atlanta, Georgia, set to be with his daughter in Los Angeles, California. ere were also reports of an altercation on set, but I prefer to think of this as a mutual decision on the part of the show and the star to move on without him. So yes, that was the character's proper farewell. Question: Is e CW's "All American" coming back? — Lorna We may not know until May (when the networks announce their fall line- ups) on this one. e fact that it doesn't fit into a mold, or one of e CW's fa- vored genres (superhero, sci-fi/fantasy, rom-com soap), makes it something of an outlier. CW shows tend to get noticed more when they drop onto Netflix once their seasons are over. is boosted the fortunes of "Riverdale" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" among oth- ers. How this fares on other platforms could determine its future on e CW. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com by Damian Holbrook Jeers to e Super Bowl and its pre- game ad blitz. Used to be that the best part of the big game was finally getting to see the pricey, star-studded commercials, like Cardi B's Pepsi spot. But so many of the ads debuted online days ahead of kickoff that the only real surprise was how dull the Patriots' win over the Rams was. Cheers to "Black Monday" for its blue-chip ensemble. Showtime's sharp-as-hell, '80s-set Wall Street sat- ire boasts a delicious, diverse portfo- lio of players — including the A-plus Regina Hall, Don Cheadle and An- drew Rannells — that pays off big for anyone who invests the time to watch.
