NOVEMBER 8 - 14, 2017 UCW 31 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE Question: I'm really enjoying the "Will & Grace" revival. e "Grandpa Jack" episode was amazing TV. I've read that the series has been asked to return for a 12-episode season next year. Any plans beyond that? - omas Matt Roush: Let's just take it one year at a time, OK? NBC's renewal of the show for a second season, before the comeback even began airing, was almost unprecedented. If the quality holds up, and all involved want to keep going, I don't see why they'd need to stop after two batches of episodes. On the other hand, there is a certain shall-we-say grace in knowing when not to overstay one's welcome, so let's resume this conversation a year from now. at said, couldn't agree more about "Grandpa Jack." Truly hilarious, with terrific guest-star casting. at and the Ben Platt episodes felt like instant classics, and that's a pretty good track record for such a young season. Question: Why did Lindsay (Sophia Bush) in "Chicago P.D." leave? - E. Shigeta Matt Roush: Once again, gone by the actor's own choice. As she recently ex- plained on Instagram, Sophia Bush left to pursue a production deal. And from the tone of her post, it sounds like she's taken quite a bit of heat from fans over her choice. Which, if so, is inexcusable behavior. It's her career, no one else's.

Quick-thinking paramedics in Dorset, England, saved the life of a man whose fishing outing went south when a dover sole jumped down his throat and blocked his windpipe on Oct. 5. Sam Quilliam, 28, had just caught the 5 1/2-inch-long fish and went to give it a kiss when it wriggled free and lodged in his throat. "I ran round the pier like a headless chicken and then passed out," Quilliam told The Guardian. When first responders arrived, Quilliam was not breathing, but friends were performing CPR. Paramedic Matt Harrison said: "It was clear that we needed to get the fish out or this patient was not going to survive. ... I was able to eventually dislodge the tip of the tail, and very carefully, so as not to break the tail off, I tried to remove it – although the fish's barbs and gills were getting stuck on the way back up." Finally, the fish "came out in one piece," Harrison said. Quilliam said his brush with death won't put him off fishing. "Once I am back at work and fit, I will probably get back at it again," he said.

Partridge and Blizz took a video and a few photos in the room, but eventually Partridge took Blizz to the Kentucky Horse Park, where the rooms are more suited to equine visitors. The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Blizz took third place in the trail competition during the event. [Lexington Herald-Leader, 10/14/2017] Wait, What?
