    SNL. Hope some of alum cast that Fred was in the cast will appear in season finale.

  2. I can’t believe anyone thought it was a good idea to remake Roots. Such an amazing miniseries shouldn’t be done again. We need new ideas in film & television.

    • There is an entire generation that never saw the original, so there’s that. It was an important cultural show that served to open up conversations that are still much needed today. Our country is still divided on civil rights issues, and we need to be reminded how ugly our history has been, and how ugly discrimination is today.
