WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM OCTOBER 14-20, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Questionable Judgment Ukraine International Airlines has banned a traveler from all future flights with the carrier after the unidentified woman opened an emergency door on a Boeing 737 and went for a walk on the wing as it was waiting at a gate at Boryspil International Airport in Kyiv. CNN reported the passenger had traveled from Antalya, Turkey, with her hus- band and children in the Aug. 31 incident, when other passen- gers heard her say she was "too hot" before she popped open the emergency exit and went outside. The airline criticized her for setting an inadequate "parental example" and threat- ened she may face "an excep- tionally high financial penalty." Airport security and doctors on the scene determined she was "not under the influence of alco- hol and/or drugs." Oops! An octogenarian in the village of Parcoul-Chenaud, France, set off a violent explosion in his attempt to kill an annoying fly, the BBC reported in September. Not realizing a gas canister in his home was leaking, the man used an electric fly swatter to battle the insect and caused an explosion that destroyed his kitchen and damaged the roof of his home. While the man was mostly un- harmed, he has had to move to a local campsite while his family makes repairs to the home. Nature Caesar, a 16-year-old alpaca at the Alaska Zoo in Anchor- age, was killed on Sept. 20 by a wild brown bear that tunneled under a fence while the facil- ity was closed then left. Caesar, who had lived at the zoo for 15 years, was "a crowd favorite," executive director Patrick Lampi told the Associated Press. The bear had been hanging around the zoo, knocking over trash cans and breaking locks, and was later euthanized when it returned. Caesar's companion alpaca, Fuzzy Charlie, escaped the attack and was unharmed. Lampi said a similar incident took place about 20 years ago; that bear was captured and relo- cated to Duluth, Minnesota. Question: My husband and I watched the entire first season of "Away" on Netflix and thought it was terrific. Are there plans for Season 2? If so, when might that become available? — Gwen Matt Roush: While I agreed in my review with some critics that the soapy earthbound subplots grew a bit tiresome, the events on the way to Mars were almost always gripping, and the cast (from Hil- ary Swank on down) sold it. So I'm hopeful we'll see more. No word from Netflix yet, and if it does get picked up, it could be a long wait — they'd have to finish the entire season before it could premiere, and the pandemic has delayed many production starts, so hard to be definitive on either of your questions. But it's hard to imagine Netflix investing this much into the show not to give the crew a chance to return to Earth in a sequel. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Love It or List It" for always keeping our prime inter- est. Now in its 16th season, HGTV's renovate-versus-relocate gem still has us sold on the competitive chemistry between designer Hil- ary Farr and real estate agent David Visentin as they try to win over homeowners. Guess you could say (sorry, David) that we're loving it! Cheers to TBS for knocking it out of the park with their reboot of "Wipe- out." Not only is ABC's former obstacle-course competition a total hoot that deserves another shot, but the planned revival has landed the dream team of John Cena and Nicole Byer as hosts. This is gonna be a (big red) ball. Jeers to "General Hospital" for letting Lindsay Hartley slip away. Last month, the Days of Our Lives alum temporarily stepped in for Kelly Monaco to play Sam on the ABC soap and stole our hearts. Why didn't the writers find a fast fix to keep her around? We'd buy an evil-twin twist! ARIES - March 21/April 20 is week you may feel more rooted in the past than the present, Aries.
