WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM MARCH 25-31, 2020 UCW 23 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication And so it begins A man in Vilnius, Lithuania, with help from his sons, report- edly locked his wife in their bathroom after she expressed worry to him that she had con- tracted COVID-19 from travel- ing to Italy, where she came in contact with some Chinese people. The husband called a doctor, who suggested she iso- late herself; she contacted police because her husband wouldn't let her out. It's unclear how long she was locked in the bathroom, but Delfi.lt reported that she was tested for the virus and did not have it. The continuing crisis A Polish tattooist known only as Piotr A. has pleaded not guilty to causing blindness in model Aleksandra Sadowska, 25, from Wroclaw, Poland. Sadowska engaged the artist to dye her eyeballs black in 2016. Following the procedure, she had pain in her eyes, which the tattooist said could be treated with painkill- ers. But she lost sight first in her right eye, and doctors told her there was nothing they could do to prevent the same fate for her left eye. "There is clear evidence that the tattoo artist did not know how to perform such a delicate procedure," Sadowska's lawyers said, according to the Daily Mail. "And yet he decided to perform it, which led to this tragedy." As he awaits his trial, the tat- tooist continues to run his salon in Warsaw, where he mainly pierces ears. Animal antics Firefighters were called to a farm near Bramham, Leeds, in England on March 7 to put out a fire in a large pigpen. At this particular farm, the pigs wear pedometers to prove that they're free-range, Fox News reported, but one of those gadgets was the probable cause of the blaze, fire- fighters said. They theorize that one of the pigs ate one of the pedometers, then passed it in its excrement, sparking a fire in the pen's hay. The culprit was the copper in the battery reacting with the pig poo. No pigs were hurt in the fire; let's hope they're getting all their steps in as usual. Question: Has there ever been talk of bringing back the original "Law & Or- der?" It was always one of my favorites. — Terry Matt Roush: ere have been talks of reviving the series, as recently as five years ago, even with some original cast members returning in a limited-run for- mat. But those talks went nowhere, and for now, it appears to be a nonstarter. e reruns still draw us in, and "Law & Order" remains one of the most power- ful and lucrative brands on TV. I know I'd like to see it again. Question: What's your take on "Law & Order: SVU's" three-season renewal? Do you think the show's going to use those episodes to do the same old, same old, or use it to start working towards some kind of conclusion? — Reed Matt Roush: For the most part, I'd expect the next seasons of "SVU" will be business as usual. e formula has worked for this long, it's not like Dick Wolf is looking to change it. I wouldn't be surprised if there are more cast comings-and-goings, but otherwise "SVU" will be "SVU," because that's what fans seem to like. It's also quite possible, though, that when this latest historic extension nears the end, that we'll be hearing of possible exit strategies. Even Mariska Hargitay can't do this gig for- ever. Or maybe she can. Time will tell. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Miss Virginia" for making the grade. Inspiring, timely and based on a true story, this indie flick (now streaming on Netflix) deserves to be in a class by itself thanks to an emotional, award-caliber turn by "Orange Is the New Black's" Uzo Aduba, who stars as a Washington, D.C., mom determined to fight the system and score her son a bet- ter education. Jeers to "e Good Doctor" for its not- great romantic side. When ABC's medi- cal drama is focusing on crazy cases and hospital crises, it's the best. But all of this soapy stuff with Sean (Freddie Highmore) and his uninterested ex Lea (Paige Spara) is turning the show into a paler shade of "Grey's."
