Sly Stallone hints at Rocky Prequel series for online streaming… Cool Idea, really…

Sly Stallone just hinted on instagram that he maybe working on a “Rocky” prequel series for online streaming. It’s a pretty cool idea really and I really think it could happen. The online streaming giants would be interested in it for sure. It’s not yet known whether it will go to Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime yet but we’ll find out soon enough if it gets the greenlight that is.

I think the prequel “Rocky” series will go to Netflix possibly ’cause after the success of the show “Cobra Kai”, the “Rocky” prequel series could be just as big.

If you know Sly Stallone on how he wrote his scripts and his ideas, he always wrote them down on notebook paper. If you can read his handwriting. Sly hints that the Rocky prequel series would be around in the 60’s, around the time all those historical things were happening that Sly listed above.

Doing a little research, Rocky Balboa was 30 years old in the first Rocky movie and it was 1976 in that film… the same year the movie was filmed in. So since the prequel TV series would be taking place in the 60’s, Rocky would be in his 20’s. So they would need a young actor in his 20’s to play a young Rocky. Good luck to them on trying to find an actor to match Sly’s look and I’m sure they will find someone with no problem.

Sly’s goal with the series that he wants the show to get into more detail of all the characters that includes Adrian, Paulie, Mickey, Apollo Creed, Spider Rico, etc. All of them. So younger actors would have to play those characters too.

Will we get to see how Rocky first met Paulie? Ya know, Paulie who is Rocky’s alcoholic friend? I’m sure we’ll get to see more of Adrian’s life and especially Apollo Creed of how he got into boxing and all would be cool. We’ll get some more insight of how Rocky got into the loan shark business with Gazzo ’cause remember, Rocky was already into that before the first movie. We’ll see how Rocky first met Mickey and how he first got into Mickey’s gym ’cause we’ve never seen any of that yet. We could get more insight on the “Duke” Evers character too. There’s so many details we haven’t seen from the first Rocky. The prequel could be pretty useful, actually. I’m all for it.

The prequel series won’t go to Paramount+ or Disney+ since Rocky is owned by MGM… so Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime is probably your best bet. I prefer it go to Netflix so everyone can see it. The ratings for “Cobra Kai” is huge at Netflix so I think the Rocky prequel show will get a huge audience.

I’m totally all for it.


Confirmed: “Guiding Light” to be cancelled this year…Sept. 18th would be the show’s final episode…

It’s official. TV’s longest running daytime soap opera in history, “Guiding Light” is ending for good which is aired on CBS. The show has been on the air for 72 years and it’s last episode will be aired on Sept. 18th.

The ratings are the big reason why the show is getting plugged.

Variety Reports:


The soaps are dying, big time. I have a feeling “Days of Our Lives” will be next ’cause that show is in trouble with the ratings too.


Report: Andy Richter rejoins Conan O’ Brien for “The Tonight Show”…

Great to hear that Andy Richter and Conan are reuniting. I wonder how long Andy plans on staying with Conan for the next round?

Variety Reports:


Andy’s a funny guy.

I wonder whose Conan’s first celebrity guests will be when his first show will air in June? I’m sure there will be big name stars to help the ratings. We’ll find out soon.


Report: Biggest Loser star, Shannon Thomas, arrested for throwing a bag of flour at a man’s face, LOL!!!!

See? Even the men can be victims of domestic violence too!!!! “Biggest Loser” star, Shannon Thomas, 30 years old, was arrested for kicking open a door of a man’s apartment and throwing a bag of flour at his face. All for just him watching TV with the volume too high!!! Talk about a temper tantrum! Shannon was arrested and could face up to three months in jail if convicted. The man who lived in the apartment moved out immediately since the incident, good for him.

More on it here:


If I had a fat bitch coming at me to beat me up, I would have done something for self defense. You think this guy would too?  I don’t hit women and never would but if they got violent for no reason, I would have done something in return to save myself from being put in the hospital. Don’t worry, she won’t get fired from the show, they’ll keep her on, to bring in this story into the show for ratings. *sigh*


Majel Barrett-Roddenberry memorial service photos…

Here are photos of the memorial service of Majel Barrett-Roddenberry (photos courtesy of trekmovie.com)…

A large photo and flowers of Majel…

Majel’s memorial is seen here…

Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi from the Next Generation) chats it up with George Takei (Sulu), the old man in the middle is the Paramount executive, A.C. Lyles.

Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koenig chats it up with “Deep Space Nine” star Chase Masterson, look like Chekov is enjoying himself a piece of cake or something.

Star Trek writer Rick Berman chatting it up with Brent Spiner (Data from The Next Generation)…

Will Wheaton (Wesley Crusher from The Next Generation) and his wife chatting it up with Roddenberry.com site admin, Trevor Roth.

Nichelle Nichols the original Uhura first showing up at the memorial service, notice her face, she looks very sad…

Star Trek “Voyager’s” Robert Picardo (he played the doctor in “Voyager”) posing for the camera.

Again, no sign of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy being at the funeral. JJ Abrams himself didn’t even attend. If there’s more memorial service pics I’ll post ’em.


Report: Majel Barrett-Roddenberry laid to rest today…

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, the first lady of Star Trek, has been laid to rest today. She was laid to rest at a Los Angeles cemetery. The funeral service was open to the public. It was even opened for Star Trek fans, yes, many of the Star Trek fans showed up wearing Star Trek uniforms, pins, and other clothing you see in the series. Some cast members of Star Trek showed up as well. Star Trek veterans, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, and George Takei were there to mourn their friend. There was no sign of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy being there.

More on it here:


Isn’t it amazing that so many die hard Star Trek fans all over the country travelled all the way to L.A. to support a famous person they don’t even know? At a funeral? As a die hard Trekkie myself, I couldn’t even attend the funeral ’cause it would be too emotional for me. Yes, I probably would have cried if I attended the funeral. This moment is almost like Spock dying in “Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan” but this is obviously real life.

RIP Majel, such a sad loss. We shall celebrate her work with the Star Trek computer for one last time when we see JJ Abrams new film.


REMINDER: Friday Night Lights Season 3 to return on Jan. 16th, TWO WEEKS AWAY!!!! :-)

FNL fans!!! The wait is almost over! “Friday Night Lights” the best show on television will make it’s return on Jan. 16th and that’s two weeks away! Just around the corner! Please everyone! Tune in and watch, enjoy. The show is very good and it isn’t lying when it says it’s the best show on TV because it is. Most shows on TV are such crap, but “FNL” is one of the very few shows that I LOVE to watch!!!

This show for this season needs as many people as it can to tune in so we can get a Season 4. Low ratings is the reason this show was this close to getting cancelled. So please watch the show to save it!

Believe me, the show is very good and it deserves to stay on the air for a long time. I sure can’t wait!!

Report: Former Star Trek cast mates mourn Majel…

Former Star Trek cast mates who worked with Majel Barrett Roddenberry in the past before, pay their respects to the first lady of Star Trek. The cast mates that mourn the great Majel are Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, George Takei, Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi), Will Wheaton, and more.

Read it all here:


Such a huge loss in the Star Trek community. As a huge Star Trek junkie myself, I’m sad of her death too.

I remember when Deforest Kelly died in 1999, and he is still missed as well. I think Deforest would be proud of JJ’s new “Star Trek” film.
