As it stands now, Disney+ is a streaming service held together by a loose conglomeration of the Disney vault, Hamilton, Marvel, and, primarily, Baby Yoda. With more of The Mandalorian coming this fall, Disney+ is pushing further into the whole Star Wars business with a new animated series: The Bad Batch, a sequel of sorts to the popular Clone Wars animated series that started airing on the Cartoon Network in 2008. The Bad Batch follows the “elite and experimental clones” dubbed the Bad Batch, who were introduced in the original series, “as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War.” Dave Filoni, who was the supervising director for The Clone Wars as well as an executive producer of The Mandalorian, is executive-producing The Bad Batch, while Brad Rau will serve as supervising director on the series. The Bad Batch will debut on Disney+ in 2021, which gives us some comfort that, if the pandemic slows down … [Read more...] about Disney+ Cranks Out More

“Corporate” is a show most Americans have never heard of. They are not missing anything. Last night it sent a Valentine’s gift to Catholics by portraying a lay person dressed like a nun who gives an advertising executive the finger. She works for a group of mega-churches, the Glorious Salvation Ministries, and is interested in hiring the ad company to do a marketing campaign. An employee of the ad firm shows up wearing an oversized rosary, suggesting that both characters are Catholic.
