OCTOBER 18 - 24, 2017 UCW 31 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE Question: What happened to Eliza- beth Keen on "e Blacklist?" Now that she knows Red is her father, it's like she is a new person. Prior to this, she would have never gone along with any of his schemes. It's like they are inventing a new series. — Anita K Matt Roush: I'm all for a show rein- venting itself at this stage (five seasons) of a long run. And lightening up a bit, especially in the wake of the big reveal, doesn't sound like the worst thing that could happen to Liz or to "e Blacklist." e producers have hinted that Liz will likely allow herself to reflect even more of her father as the season progresses. (One clue: When the crook in the first episode talks about nature winning out over nurture.) I get that transitions like this can feel abrupt, but given how long they stretched out the whole is-he-or- isn't-he storyline, this seems like a re- freshing change of pace. Question: I think I know why CBS had to put "Star Trek: Discovery" behind a paywall. ere are four producers, two consulting producers and 14 co-execu- tive and executive producers! — E.B. Matt Roush: anks for the laugh. It takes a village, or in this case a small galaxy, to run a show. Don't even ask me what some of them do (many are writers, others directors, but beyond that, hard to say). by Damian Holbrook Cheers to NBC for making us thirsty for ursdays. anks to the combined comedy powers of "Superstore," "e Good Place," the revived "Will & Grace" (with Megan Mullally, Eric McCor- mack, Debra Messing and Sean Hayes) and the finally appreciated "Great News," the former home of hilarity has put together a sharply smart lineup that's must-see instead of musty. Jeers to the new "TRL" for being DOA. FYI, MTV: If you're gonna reboot one of the most beloved countdown shows of all time, it would help to actu- ally play music videos and, you know, take live requests. So far, we've gotten sermons from DJ Khaled, a slew of technical errors and, sadly, very little music. WTF? NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Animals on the Lam Auburn, Massachusetts, police received a number of calls over the weekend of Sept. 15-17 about a wayward goat, but it wasn't until the wee hours of Monday, Sept. 18, that No. 448 was finally corralled at the La Quinta Inn in Auburn, reported CBS Boston. The "mischievous runaway farm animal" was seen on surveillance video entering the lobby of the hotel and wandering the halls, "presumably to rest a bit," said police. Peter Blash, No. 448's owner, said the goat jumped a 5-foot- high fence and "took off like a criminal." However, Blash said, "I had one that made it all the way to Sturbridge." [CBS Boston, 9/20/2017] Oops! A family in Coventry, England, is "quite mortified" after calling the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in September to rescue a lizard peeking from underneath a bed in their home. But when officer Vic Hurr arrived at the home, she discovered the "lizard" was not a "lizard at all, it was a pink stripy sock." The dirty imposter sock, about 7 inches long and 2 inches wide, wasn't moving, Hurr noted. "I think the family eventually saw the funny side," an RSPCA spokeswoman told The Independent. "The sock had obviously been there quite a while. It was a typical teenager's bedroom, I suppose." [The Independent, 9/14/2017] The Caving Club at Indiana University explored Sullivan Cave in southern Indiana on Sept. 17, but when they headed back to campus, they forgot one thing: a 19-year-old freshman physics major who had become separated from the group and was trapped behind a locked gate. When the club president realized two days later that a caver had been left behind, members rushed back to save him. "You could tell they were pretty shaken up," the caver told the Indiana Daily Student. "They did near kill me." The student reported he licked moisture off the cave walls during the ordeal and wrote goodbye letters to his family on his iPhone until the battery died. (BONUS: The rescued caver's name is Lukas Cavar.) [Indiana Daily Student, 9/22/2017] The Greene County (Tennessee) Sheriff's Department alerted drivers along Chuckey Pike on Sept. 20 not to be alarmed by a body that appeared to have been crushed by a house's garage door. "THIS IS A HALLOWEEN DECORATION!" the department's Facebook page warns. "Do NOT call 911 reporting a dead body." Officers had rushed to the scene with sirens blaring after a caller reported the body, but then discovered the clever (but really early) holiday tableau. [FOX News, 9/21/2017] ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, if you have a gut feeling about something but not much tangible proof to back up your suspicions, use your intuition as a guide.
