WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM SEPTEMBER 11-17, 2019 UCW 27 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Desperate Housewife The Botox RN MD Spa in Sugar Land, Texas, was the scene of a breaking-and-enter- ing caught on camera Aug. 23, but police are still looking for the slim, youthful- looking culprit. Surveillance video shows a woman testing the locked doors of the spa that evening, the Associated Press reported, then return- ing in a Mercedes SUV with a battery-powered grinding saw. After cutting through the clin- ic's front door, she took an un- disclosed amount of anti-aging products and drove away. Weird Science A day of fishing on Lake Champlain became more memorable than most when Debbie Geddes of Platts- burgh, New York, reeled in a trout worthy of a social media storm: It had two mouths. Geddes and her husband were fishing in mid-August when the unusual catch took the bait, WPTZ reported. Geddes' co-worker Adam Facteau post- ed pictures to Facebook and said he's heard many theories about what caused the fish's deformity — including that it's an offspring of the lake's famed monster, Champy. Geddes threw the trout back after snapping some photos. [WPTZ, 8/21/2019] Great Art! In downtown Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, someone left a plate of macaroni and cheese, complete with fork, sitting atop a steel road bar- rier Aug. 27, which caught the interest of a Reddit poster. No one knew where it came from or if someone would be back to retrieve it, but a day later an anonymous citizen made it into an art installation, re- ported CTV News, by adding a museum-like tag beside it. "Abandoned Snack (2019) — Macaroni and sun-dried to- mato on ceramic — Unknown Artist," reads the placard. Christie's, are you listening? [CTV, 8/28/2019] Question: We have really enjoyed the se- ries "Elementary" with Jonny Lee Miller playing Sherlock and Lucy Liu playing Watson. e last episode may have left the series open for more stories should another channel opt to pick it up. Any chance that may happen? Maybe some two-hour movie specials? —Rich Matt Roush: Sometimes we should just settle for a happy ending. In the case of "Elementary," despite a few mischie- vous teases along the way suggesting one or the other were dead, we were left with Holmes and Watson reunited and ready to offer their services once again to the NYPD, with Captain Bell now at the helm, and Holmes' marvelous kicker: "As long as we're together, what does it matter?" e implication being that while the show may be over, their adventures continue, including in our imagination. At present, there appear to be no plans to shop the show to another platform, and Lucy Liu has already booked a new series —"Why Women Kill," on CBS All Access. TV-movie fran- chises outside Hallmark are a rare com- modity anymore, so an "Elementary" movie series seems a long shot as well. For a show to go out on such a positive if open-ended note is about as much as fans can hope for these days. e busi- ness is always changing, though, and if the network ever felt the need for a comeback, they certainly left the door wide open. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to Will Ferrell's Talk Takeover. To promote the new season of "e Ron Burgundy Podcast," Ferrell's Anchor- man alter ego visited late-night hosts Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers and James Corden — all in one night. Granted, some of the spots, which aired Aug. 8, were pretaped, but still a damn classy move. Jeers to Krypton 's Destruction. Easily the best space drama since "Battlestar Galactica," Syfy's "Superman" prequel, set on his doomed home planet, soared through two rollicking seasons on the capable shoulders of star Cameron Cuffe, only to be vanquished by a su- per- villain more nefarious than Brai- niac: low ratings. Hey, DC Universe — it might be time to save the day and pick this one up. ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, be careful with your words so they are not taken the wrong way in the coming days.
