I don't think the show itself is at all trans-phobic. But I think transphobic people will mistakenly see it as affirming their trans-phobic views (straight men dressing up as women to gain access to women's bathrooms.) In my opinion, to buy into, or even argue that notion only lends credibility to the transphobs' misguided fear/hate by acknowledging it.
In my opinion, it would be wise to ignore the controversy. It's not right to direct blame at the show, when the sh
I would suggest that asking a stranger for a hug is also inappropriate. It puts them in the uncomfortable position of having to say no, which can be awkward. So some will end up saying yes when they really want to say no. Do not hug, or ask to hug strangers.

I'm neither a troll, nor a big pain... The knife stood out to me and took me immediately out of the moment as much as seeing a gladiator wearing an iwatch would. When you add up a lot of these little anachronisms in one series, it becomes an issue. If it doesn't bother you
Condensing events for times sake should not be done if it changes the meaning of those events. To me the shocking thing about the sex scene with Ann was the very fact that it happened when they show it happening, right after heart surgery. It said a lot about him in that he would even ask her to do this. And it says a lot that she would give in and do it against her better judgement. To me, it actually felt more like power and abuse, than sex. And none of that comes into play if you remove th
The Wikipedia page on payphones says, "On average, pay phone calls generally cost 5¢ into the 1950's and 10¢ until the mid 1980's. Rates standardized at 25¢ during the mid 1980's to early 1990's." I interpret this to mean that it was only a nickel until it changed to a dime sometime during the 50s. Then it remained a dime until the 80s.

I thought this documentary was far more entertaining than Fosse/Verdon is. I find it a ploddingly depressive exercise with editing that constantly reminds me
Does anyone know what they're trying to replicated at about :15 in the trailer? I can't think of any Judy film, or any press film or photos for that matter, that shows her jumping into a pool, particularly showing her from underwater. Unless it's just her jumping into the Esther Williams underwater filming tank at a studio party. Though I'd think there'd be filmed evidence of this somewhere. Only pool photos I've seen are Judy, Mickey etc at L B Mayer's home pool f
When I saw Doyle's Sweeney Todd, there were a few people that would titter and giggle whenever anything intense happened (like Epiphany.) I think some folks get uncomfortable at things that are too scary or too intimate and they giggle as a release. Then it gets contagious and other people hear it and giggle too, thinking it's camp. We saw this happen with Sondheim's Passion. People found it easier to deal with as camp than as the actual intensity that was intended, especially in
He's certainly got his problems. But I wouldn't call him a sociopath since he demonstrates empathy for others. And it's clear that he doesn't consider himself to be superior to others. Those are two of the main defining characteristics of a sociopath.
I think he behaves badly, but I don't think it's out of the scope of what many people would be capable of. I don't think he's a hero. But I also don't think he's a sociopath. I think he's just a
JSquared2 said: "If a block of tickets was given to, say, the ad agency, they probably wouldn't know who was using them --- but at least they knowto tell the ad agency one of their people was caught selling comps. Then the ad agency will deal with it internally."
In that scenario, the ad agency may use tickets in any number of ways. They may give some to a delivery boy as a tip. The delivery boy may then give them to his Grandma because she likes theatre. She may
