Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Timothy Olyphant and his sloungy ways, wicked wit, sexay eyes and long loooooooong legs. Not that I’m partial or anything.

What is even happening?

I believe it's City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit.

Yes.

The Deadline article on this says, "City Primeval does not feature [Raylan] but the idea is for the TV adaptation to incorporate him, with Olyphant potentially reprising his role."

Why do trees keep happening? — Eukaryote Writes

I just hope they don't whitewash Detroit. It's majority minority, for goodness sake. And I've seen reality shows (travel, home renovation, etc.) where you'd never know there was a single BIPOC person in the entire city. I mean, yay Timothy Olyphant to be sure, but maybe as part of the 14% of the cast max that, for any level of accuracy, could be white.

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

I remember years ago there was a show about policing the gritty streets of Toronto. They'd have to ship in their garbage, arrange it artistically in the alleys they wanted to shoot in and then post guards to keep their imported garbage from being cleaned up.

I think that happened when Toronto was the filming spot for "Chicago" scenes in Due South, too.

If you're going through hell/keep on going/don't slow down/keep your fear from showing/you might be gone/'fore the devil even knows you're there

I was in Toronto the day after the Raptors win the NBA Championship a couple of years ago and I can tell you that’s no longer a problem.

There's "Soul Stone dead" and there's "I'm suing Disney dead". —Wonderella

I don't recall it being that notably clean in 2000 either. Pretty close to what I saw of actual Chicago around the same time.

What is even happening?

FOX has cancelled Prodigal Son after two seasons. It comes from Warner Bros., so Deadline isn't sure if it's truly dead, or if they'll shop it elsewhere, or move it to HBO Max. [link]

Cast reaction round-up: [link]

We inhaled season one, but never got past the second episode of season two. I have much less tolerance for dark shows, right now. I am watching a couple, but I just couldn't get back into this one.

Probably about the time they actually let a series run to its natural conclusion.
