    Washington Post ^ | June 28 2016 | Travis M. Andrews
    By the time Bud Spencer attracted legions of Italian spaghetti western film fans, including Quentin Tarantino, he had done more than most people do in a lifetime. After a life in which he worked as a multi-sport Olympic athlete, politician, entrepreneur, pilot and, yes, an actor, Spencer died on Monday at a hospital in Rome. He was 86, but he had packed centuries into those years. “My father died peacefully at 6:15 p.m. and did not suffer from pain, he had all of us next to him and his last words were ‘Thank you’,” his son Giuseppe Pedersoli, a film...

    When Fox Television ran the “reboot” of the X-Files this winter I will confess that I was completely enthralled. Yes, I was a fan boy. I loved the original series, even in the seasons when Duchovny had grown sick of his job and disappeared for extended periods, ostensibly having been abducted by aliens. (Sorry for the spoilers to any of you tuning in after emerging from a time machine.) I even liked the movies. And the six part mini-series (now known as “Season 10”) back in January and Februrary was a great trip down memory lane which they clearly pumped...

    One thing Star Trek always does well is push beyond social boundaries, often featuring progressive storylines that question controversial issues of the time. The new Star Trek series on CBS will also feature progressive characters and stories, maintaining the tradition of going "where no one has gone before." When asked about those kinds of story lines, showrunner Bryan Fuller confirmed that the new series plans on going back to Star Trek's roots. "I think the progressive audience that loves Star Trek will be happy that we're continuing that tradition," Fuller said to Collider.

    It's odd to think that, once upon a time, a TV show set in space -- one that declared, in its opening narration, as the cosmos being the "final frontier" -- was considered the pop-cultural equivalent of an unwanted party-crasher. Yes, a concept like Star Trek was both of its time and clearly ahead of it; history has more than vindicated Gene Roddenberry's notion of boldly going where no man had gone before.
