WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM MAY 13-19, 2020 UCW 21 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Zoom fatigue ABC News reporter Will Reeve made an internet meme come to life on April 28 when he appeared on "Good Morning America" to report on pharmacies using drones to deliver prescriptions. Looking dapper in a sport coat and open-collared shirt, Reeve, no doubt, thought his home setup would camouflage the fact that he wasn't wearing pants, CNN reported. Twitter had a field day, and Reeve himself tweeted back, "I have ARRIVED ... in the most hi - lariously mortifying way possible." Least competent criminal North Carolina State Highway Patrol officers stopped Lance Gordon, 32, on April 24, for speeding in a car belonging to Angela Lee, 47, of Holly Springs, whom Gordon said was an ac - quaintance. WRAL reported authorities grew suspicious after Holly Springs police were unable to contact Lee to confirm the story, and in a subsequent search of her house and car, investigators found Lee's body in the car's trunk. Gordon was charged with Lee's murder, along with stealing her car. Entrepreneurial spirit Brian Wood, owner of All Amer- ican Gator Products in Dania Beach, Florida, is taking face masks to a whole new level by fashioning coverings made with the skin of Burmese pythons. "Some people want to make a fashion statement even during this pandemic, so I want to give them options," Wood told The Miami Herald on April 19. The snakeskin itself doesn't offer any added protection, but the masks would allow for a filter or lining to be inserted and re - moved. Wood hopes to add alli- gator and crocodile skin masks to his offerings, although alligator, "the diamond of leathers," would be more expensive. Wood said he will be buying animals from local hunters to meet the demand. Question: "After Life" is the best series on television, but this second season ended like a series finale. Please tell me there will be more of "After Life." — Carolyn Matt Roush: I wish I could, because my fondness for this poignant dramedy is nearly as enthusiastic as yours, but as of now, Netflix hasn't renewed the series. And the history of Ricky Gervais comedies, which generally last only two seasons, might suggest this could be it — although in a recent Q&A on Twitter, he expressed a desire to continue with a third season, so let's hope that happens. Even should "After Life" not have a longer shelf life, I agree with your reaction that the end of the current season ended on a hopeful enough note that I feel good where we left these characters. Question: "Fargo" was scheduled to start on FX April 19. I can't find it. Did some- thing pre-empt it? — John T. Matt Roush: at "something" would be the pandemic, which shut down pro- duction on the fourth season before the final episodes could be filmed. With no guarantee of when the series could be completed, thus leaving viewers hanging, FX decided to postpone Fargo until busi- ness could resume. I'm expecting the long wait to be worth it, though it's obviously a disappointment not to have it back as a spring treat. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to Amy Poehler and Nick Of- ferman for crafting a fun way to pass the time inside. NBC's "Making It" hosts are encouraging folks to post their DIY proj- ects to Instagram with the hashtag #Mak- ingItAtHome for a chance to benefit local food banks in need. Jeers to CBS for a God-awful decision. Pray tell, why would you cancel an up- lifting escape like "God Friended Me," starring the charming Brandon Micheal Hall as a man guided by a seemingly omnipotent online adviser, after only two seasons? With everything going on in the world, a show like this is needed more than ever. ARIES - March 21/April 20 You'll have a lot of energy and inspiration this week, Aries.
