WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM OCTOBER 28-NOVEMBER 3, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Questionable Judgment Windermere, Florida, fifth- grader Ian Golba, 11, visited the principal's office after his teacher asked him to remove his Hooters face mask. "She said it was not appropriate for school and I asked her why and she said if you really want to know why go ask the principal," Ian told WESH. The principal at Sunset Park Elementary School backed up the teacher, asking Ian three times to remove the mask, which he did. But Greg Golba, Ian's dad, wants to know what the problem was. "I don't think it's offensive at all. It's just a restaurant," Greg said. Awesome! Florida real estate agent Kristen Kearney was inun- dated with interest in a condo she listed in Lake Worth after photos of the $100,000 proper- ty and its Budweiser beer can decor went viral. The former owner, now deceased, made it "his life's mission to wallpaper his home in beer cans, and he did it," Kearney said. "He even created a crown molding look with the cans." United Press International reported every wall and ceiling in the condo is covered with actual beer cans, except the bathroom. Kearney said the property is under con- tract with a backup offer. Fashion of the Times In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, French fashion house Louis Vuitton announced it will release a protective visor Oct. 30 in its stores worldwide that Vogue reports is "the most luxurious take on a plastic face shield that we've seen to date." The LV Shield is trimmed with the designer's signature mono- gram and gold studs engraved with the company's logo. It doubles as a sun visor, chang- ing from clear to tinted when exposed to sunlight, and also can be flipped up and worn as more of a cap. Although a price for the shield has not been set, Vogue estimates it to be somewhere between the cost of a typical Vuitton hat, $700, and sunglasses, $800. Question: Streaming shows' entire seasons are plotted and written in advance before being filmed. Meanwhile, broadcast network shows seem to be written on the fly, rarely even a few episodes in ad- vance. Do you think that more net- work shows have taken advantage of the COVID hiatus to have more scripts written ahead of time with more cohesive stories? — Mike Matt Roush: e simple answer is yes, although while virtual writers' rooms were able to bank scripts ahead of time during the production hiatus, producers were also forced to rethink how their shows would be written go- ing forward: fewer crowd scenes, less ambitious set pieces, etc. I'd argue a few of your assumptions. While regular network episodic TV is produced closer to air than streaming series, which gener- ally must finish an entire season before the show premieres, even network series typically have season-long story arcs and char- acter development thought out in advance. e network model does allow for more flexibility should certain stories and characters pop or flop as cameras roll. So I'm not sure the streaming model is always an advantage for a series when it's produced in a bubble until the entire season is already finished.

After a slew of spi- noffs (and marriages) that didn't work, it's time for the celebu- family to hang up their designer handbags and staged dramas with next year's 20th season. Jeers to "Big Brother" for taking a stand...two decades too late.
