WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM SEPTEMBER 2-8, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Revenge An unnamed man in Cairns, North Queensland, Australia, post- ed notices offering a $100 prize to the person able to best impersonate Chewbacca from "Star Wars," but the contest turned out to be a hoax designed to harass the woman who dumped him. The posters listed the woman's phone number and invited contestants to call and deliver their best Chewbacca roar. The woman, identified only as Jessica, told 9News: "I'm getting phone calls at really strange hours of the night ... I thought it was quite funny, actually, a good joke." However, she drew the line when the ex abandoned his car, without tires, in the driveway of her home, blocking her in. "The police ... are going to do something about it," she said. Police Report A 26-year-old man in Plymouth, England, was detained after officers working nearby heard a commo- tion and looked up to see the man struggling with a seagull and biting it. "He sunk his teeth into it before throwing it to the floor," a police spokesperson told Plymouth Live. The man told police the seagull had attacked him, trying to get his McDonald's meal, and also "vol- unteered ... that he was under the influence of drugs ... the seagull was clearly injured by the incident but flew off before we were able to check on its welfare," police said. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment. Can't Take a Joke After pub owner Steve Cotten jokingly announced that the beer garden at the Poltimore Arms in Devon, England, would become the Yarde Down International Airport for the summer, offering sightseeing flights, he was surprised to receive an official letter from Exmoor Na- tional Park Authority's planning officer expressing concern about the change: "We have a duty to look into such matters to understand if there is a breach, and if so, whether any action is necessary." Devon Live re- ported Cotten responded promptly in a social media post, saying, "All long-haul flights have been sus- pended forthwith ... We apologise for any delays, and remind you that the departure lounge facilities are still open." The park authority re- plied with good humor, and the taps remain open. Question: I recently binged through the first two seasons of "Cobra Kai" and was really surprised how true it is to the spirit of the original "Karate Kid" movie series. Do you think Net- flix has plans for extending the series further? —Mark H. Matt Roush: Netflix announced that the third season will premiere in 2021. It's a bit of a wait, but I don't see that as a negative. While "Cobra Kai" earned an enthusiastic fol- lowing as a YouTube original, the expectations are high that the series will grow exponentially in reach now that the first two seasons are on Netflix. I see this as a rare mo- ment of restraint on the part of the streamer, to acknowledge that for many, a 20-episode binge will be enough for the moment and will merely whet the appetite for a third season that can enjoy another round of promotion. I'd be surprised if fans will have to wait very long into the new year for the next season, and I'll be even more shocked if there isn't a considerably longer life to the franchise. At the time of the pickup, the producers described Netflix in a statement as "a new home where we can not only continue the series, but also explore opportunities to further expand 'e Karate Kid' universe." Sky's the limit. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "e Dog House: UK" for leaving paw prints on our hearts. A love letter to our four-legged best friends, HBO Max's docuseries about the staff at a British shelter playing matchmaker for abandoned canines and hopeful pet owners is an uplift- ing, tail-wagging treat that should be pup-ular even with cat people. Jeers to Hulu for pulling the plug on "High Fidelity." Not only did the A-plus adaptation of Nick Hornby's novel starring Zoë Kravitz as bro- ken-hearted record-store owner de- serve a second season, but it's also really out of tune with the times to axe a critically acclaimed black-led series, don't ya think?
