Virtual Reality How To

You’re gonna want to be sitting down. Daniel Glass wanted to know if I’d seen the “New York Times” VR video of the retaking of Fallujah. Alas, I’d thrown the viewer out when it came with the paper way back when. Didn’t know I was doing that, but realized it after the fact, when the […]

* “Star Trek Discovery’s” lead character, whom we learned earlier this month would be a female, human non-captain Starfleet officer, will be referred to in the series as “Number One,” showrunner Bryan Fuller told me during a radio chat late Saturday.
* Also? The first season of “Star Trek Discovery,” which begins airing in January, will boast only 13 episodes (the shortest live-action season of Star Trek ever produced), but Fuller told me during the same KERN-FM interview he would prefer to produce only 10 “Star Trek Discovery” episodes per year. (Note that Fuller’s other upcoming series, Starz’ “American Gods,” will comprise only nine first-season episodes. And we’ve only gotten 10 episodes of “Game of Thrones” per year.)
* While Fuller and “Star Trek Into Darkness” screenwriter Alex Kurtzman wrote the first hour of “Star Trek: Discovery,” the second hour was scripted by Nicholas Meyer (“Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home,” “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country”).
* Fuller has hired co-showrunners on the new Trek series in the form of writing team Gretchen Berg & Aaron Harberts, who worked with Fuller on “Wonderfalls” and “Pushing Daisies.” (The duo’s other credits include “Roswell,” “Revenge” and “Reign.”)
* Jesse Alexander (“Alias,” “Heroes,” “Hannibal”) has joined the “Star Trek Discovery” writing staff. So has a TV newcomer, author/playwright Kemp Powers (“The Shooting,” “One Night in Miami”).
* Fuller described TNG/DS9/Voyager/Discovery writer Joe Menosky (“Time’s Arrow,” “Year of Hell”) as Fuller’s “mentor” when Fuller was getting his start

The Comedy Central Roast Of Rob Lowe: Everybody Hates Ann Coulter

“Welcome to the Ann Coulter Roast with Rob Lowe,” quipped controversial political commentator Ann Coulter during her turn onstage, which was fitting, as she took the most blows tonight at Comedy Central’s Rob Lowe Roast ceremony, held at the Sony lot. The digs were sharp, frequent, and packed with c-word drops as every single one of the other roasters opened up on her with both barrels as if she were there as the representative of Donald Trump. Which, she kind of…

The Strain 3.1 FAQ
What’s it called? “New York Strong.”
Who’s responsible? Teleplay is credited to showrunner Carlton Cuse and Chuck Hogan (who co-authored the “Strain” novels).
What says FX? “The strigoi are evolving, becoming faster. Smarter. Eph struggles to improve his failing bioweapon while trying to work through the emotional fallout of the abduction of his son, Zack. As Setrakian and Quinlan attempt to crack the Lumen’s deepest-held secrets, Fet helps a Navy SEAL team in a deadly mission: search for the Master through the underground tunnels of New York.”
The Occido Lumen was written in 1667. Given that it’s apparently worth millions, did no one ever bother to make a photocopy? At FX’s TCA event in Beverly Hills earlier this month, I asked showrunner Carlton Cuse if the Lumen can be photocopied. He replied that it can and we will see it photocopied this season.
Does the episode open with a flashback? No.
Are there flashbacks this week? No.
How does the episode start? Setrakian reminds us it’s only been 23 days since Eph entered that plane in the first episode. Then soldiers with skulls on their shoulders kick down a door and disrupt a vampire feeding.
Is Dutch gone for good? Last seen kissing Nikki goodbye, Dutch did not appear in last year’s finale and does not turn up tonight either. But she’s back next week.

Showtime says Of “The Load Out”:
A memorial for a rock and roll legend at the LA Forum brings together a star-studded lineup, while the crew faces an uncertain future.

Spoilers for tonight’s and future episodes of “Big Brother” lurk in invisotext:
Victor beat the other jury members in the HoH competition and is now back in the house and back in the game. (The man’s name is Victor for a reason!)
Nicole won the HoH and nominated Michelle and Paul for eviction.
Nicole won the Power of Veto, so I reckon either Michelle or Paul will be headed for jury during Thursday’s live eviction.
Returning tonight: Brunch At Bobby’s (Food) Great Food Truck Race (Food) The Strain (FX)
