WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM NOVEMBER 3-9, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Odd Job The city council of Christchurch, New Zealand, has officially ended its contract with The Wizard of New Zealand (also known as Ian Brackenbury Channell) after 23 years of service. Over his tenure, the Wizard cast spells and entertained tourists to the tune of $16,000 per year, but the city no longer believes his services are necessary, Oddee.com reported. Officially, Christchurch's "promotional landscape is changing," said the council's assistant chief executive Lynn McClelland, with "programs that will ... showcase a vibrant, diverse, modern city." For his part, the Wizard called the council "a bunch of bureaucrats who have no imagination. I am the original image of Christchurch. They will have to kill me to stop me." Awesome! ABC News reported on Oct. 20 that in Wellington, New Zealand, police went above and beyond for a certain emergency call. When a dispatcher answered the call, a little voice started out, "Hi. Police lady?" The 4-year-old then went on to say, "I've got some toys for you. Come over and see them." Around then, an adult took the phone, confirm- ing that it was not an emergency, but the dispatcher sent Con- stable Kurt over anyway. The little boy showed off his toys to the officer and had a "good, edu- cational chat" about the use of the emergency number (111 in New Zealand). "He did have cool toys," Constable Kurt confirmed. He reciprocated by turning on his patrol car's lights for the boy. Oops! During an Oct. 17 weather segment on KREM-TV in Spo- kane, Washington, viewers were stunned to see a 13-second clip of a woman's bare behind on a display behind the meteo- rologist, Yahoo! News reported. Viewers began calling the Spo- kane police department, which is now working with the station to find out how the video made it to the broadcast. KREM-TV could face fines from the Federal Communications Commission for airing the shocking scene. Question: Have you heard any- thing about whether "Get Shorty" will be coming back? — Toni M Matt Roush: While Epix never officially or publicly canceled the show, "Get Shorty" is history. (Rule of thumb: If two years have gone by with no news about a show going back into production, odds are it's over.) I enjoyed this adaptation of the Elmore Leon- ard property, one of the better show-business satires. ankfully, much of its terrific cast — Chris O'Dowd, Ray Romano, Sean Bridgers, Lidia Porto (Home Eco- nomics) — keep turning up all over TV and film. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "e Goldbergs" un- bridled Bev (the Emmy-owed Wendi McLendon- Covey.) Dearly beloved, we are gathered to celebrate the ABC comedy's perfect union of weird and wist- ful, as altar-bound daughter Er- ica (Hayley Orrantia) attempts to plan the perfect wedding with her lovingly intrusive smother- of-the bride, Bev. Love it? We do! Cheers to "United States of Al" for realizing some things are no laughing matter. CBS's sitcom about Afghan war vet Riley (Parker Young) and former interpreter Al (Adhir Kalyan) ditched its laugh track to open Season 2 with a gut-wrenching tale about Al's race to get his sis- ter to safety as his homeland fell to a violent regime. Jeers to So Many Season Exits. Fall TV has barely just begun and already we've lost "e Residence's" Nic (Emily Van- Camp) and e "Rookie's" Jack- son (Titus Makin). Plus, "FBI: Most Wanted's" Crosby (Kellan Lutz) has been shipped off and "A Million Little ings'" Delilah (Stephanie Szostak, now recur- ring) will be seen less.
