WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JULY 29- AUGUST 4, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Bright ideas Commuters in Berlin, Germany, are required to wear masks on pub- lic transportation, and are subject to fines if they don't. Despite that, reports Deutsche Welle, so many people wear their masks incorrectly (covering the mouth but not the nose) that Berlin's transport company, BVG, is now suggesting that riders skip deodorant when they're getting ready for the day, in hopes that the body odor on crowded trains will keep those masks in place. "Given that so many people think they can wear their masks under their noses, we're getting tough," read a bright yellow posting from July 1 on Twitter. "The BVG is calling for a general deodorant waiver. So now do you still want to have your nose out?" Least competent criminal Wendy Wein, 51, of South Rock- wood, Michigan, was arrested July 17 after offering an undercover state trooper $5,000 to kill her ex-husband and giving him money for travel ex- penses, WXYZ reported. Wein met the trooper after allegedly visiting the fake website rentahitman.com, where she completed a form requesting a con- sultation and named her ex-husband as the target. The owner of the web- site contacted Michigan State Police, who sent the undercover officer. "I'm very surprised that someone thought this website was a true website," said state police spokesman Lt. Brian Oleksyk. The website owner said over the last 15 years he's been contacted a number of times by people wanting someone killed, and he turns all of those requests over to law enforcement. Wait, what? Iceland is offering a stressed-out world a unique way to blow off some steam, reports Sky News — scream therapy. The country's tourist board is inviting people worldwide to record their screams to be played over loud- speakers in one of seven remote loca- tions. "You've been through a lot this year," says the project website, "and it looks like you need the perfect place to let your frustrations out. Some- where big, vast and untouched. It looks like you need Iceland." Psycho- therapist Zoe Aston approves: "Using a scream as a way to release pent-up emotion allows you to ... reclaim the power that is inside you." Iceland has suffered relatively little during the COVID-19 pandemic, with 1,905 cases of the disease and 10 lives lost. Question: Given her attachment to e "Mighty Ducks" series on Disney+, is Lau- ren Graham (who plays Zoey's boss Joan) expected to return full-time to "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist" for Season 2? Or are their filming schedules not expected to overlap? — Michael Matt Roush: e idea is for her to be able to do both, since both series produce a limited number of episodes. Lauren Gra- ham started work on "e Mighty Ducks" this winter after Zoey wrapped, but I'm not sure how far they got before every- thing shut down. Regardless, both series should be able to fit into her schedule, and there's no intent as far as I'm aware to limit her involvement in Zoey. Nor should there be. Question: I just want to say I LOVE "e Genetic Detective" on ABC-- it's unique and real! I notice it's not scheduled (per TV Guide Magazine) for the next few weeks. Will it return? I hope this show will also prove how important DNA is in catching offenders and that all courtrooms will al- low the evidence! — Susan Matt Roush: is series has concluded its first-season run, and it's probably a bit early to know if it will be renewed. ABC could certainly do worse than an unscript- ed docuseries that plays into our longtime fascination with forensic crime-solving, so the chances are probably decent if CeCe Moore has more stories to tell. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Legendary" for living up to its name. Pumping with the best parts of "Pose," "Project Runway" and "RuPaul's Drag Race," the HBO Max ballroom com- petition is an extravaganza celebrating performers as athletic as they are inspir- ing. And when "e Good Place's" Ja- meela Jamil and the other judges get into it? at is a realness you don't see on other reality shows. Jeers to "Dancing With e Stars" for showing Tom Bergeron the door. Since the first paso doble, the host has been the real star of ABC's staple, so it makes sense that his firing — along with cohost Erin Andrews — has fans stomping their feet. And good luck to new host Tyra Banks... she has some big Dancing shoes to fill. ARIES - March 21/April 20 What seems like innocent fun can quickly escalate, Aries.
