• FOR THE WEEK OF OcTObER 16 - 22, 2023 • YOUR WEEKLY GUIDE TO TV ENTERTAINMENT Lennie James in "Fear the Walking Dead" The 2023-24 Premier League season continues as the London derby kicks off at Stamford Bridge this weekend. Chelsea hosts Arsenal, Saturday, Oct. 21, with all Premier League action broadcast live on NBC. After a breakthrough season last year that saw the Gunners win their first 16 games — marking their best start to a campaign, including returning to the Champions League after a six-year absence — Arsenal has looked similarly strong to start the 2023-24 campaign. In fact, they're already sitting with double digits in points and getting contributions from players collectively. With Arsenal fielding the second-youngest team last season, a significant boost to its squad has been in the midfield position, with newly appointed captain Martin Odegaard a large reason for its newfound success. Since his arrival to the squad from Real Madrid, the immediate impact the Norwegian has displayed can't be understated. His vision in the midfield has sparked the offence at the right times, providing timely assists for Bu- koyo Saka and Leonardo Trossard spreading out the offence and providing the Gunners with a more balanced attacking game. His ability to control the tempo and provide timely balls proves why Arsenal has him as part of its long-term plans, recently signing him to a five- year contract, making him the clubs highest paid player. While Arsenal have been trending upward, the same can't be said about Chelsea. This season has been nothing short of disappointing as the Blue Devils currently sit in the lower half of the standings, following a season that saw record financial spending. Martin Odegaard and Gunners look to kick off London derby with a bang By Roberto Jozef playerprofile By Adam Thomlison Q: Is Ione Skye still acting? I was such a fan of hers when I was younger. A: You can still be a fan of Ione Skye's today — she's just a little harder to find. In contrast with her it-girl '80s period, these days she mostly pops up in quirky supporting roles on TV or in indie films. For example, she showed up for a single episode of the buzzy Netflix series "Beef" earlier this year, playing a literal witch who gives an ominous warning to a younger version of the main character (played in the present day by Ali Wong, "Always Be My Maybe," 2019). And she had a supporting role on the Australian surfer-themed drama "Barons," which was cancelled by CW this summer after just four episodes. She can get these sorts of roles now thanks to the fame she built in her '80s heyday when she was appearing in stylish, cool and talked-about projects such as "Say Anything" (1989) and "River's Edge" (1986). That plus (let's be honest) a pretty distinctive name, a famous pedigree (she's the daughter of '60s folk-pop star Donovan) and a series of relationships with edgy rock stars that got her into the tabloids, meant that in the late '80s, Ione Skye was a pretty big deal.
