Yeah, I think Singer is in deep doo-doo.

As a fan of that show, I also noticed something else - a major cast change.

https://screenrant.com/legion-season-2- ... rouk-cast/

Looks like the "Shadow King" will no longer be Wonder Woman's Said Taghmoui, and will instead be portrayed by Homeland's Navid Neghaban.

A new season is supposed to start in April. Hope they still pull it off. I say that because I think if you watch Season 1, it subverts a lot of the ways "superhero" and "X-men" stories are told on screen, and really reminds me a lot of Watchmen in that way. It subverts tropes in a good way. Very refreshing. Again, like Watchmen, with issues as to the sanity of the protagonist. (Well, given that Rohrshach provides much of the narration.)

Odds on choice to replace Franken is Minnesota Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith.

http://www.startribune.com/gov-mark-day ... 462412193/.

As said earlier, the person chosen by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton would more than likely be a Woman.

Governor Mark Dayton (Democrat) will more than likely chose Minnesota Tina Smith (Democrat) to replace Al Franken who rsigned the Senate today under accusation of Sexual Misconduct.

Now that Democrats have set the example for standing up to Sexual Misconduct in the Work Place, I fully expect them to do absoultely nothing a known Serial Womanizer, a known Sexual Predator, a Man who boasts about sexually assaulting and bragging about it, a Man perved out on a 10-Year Old, a Man that raped a 13-Year Old girl.....I fully and completely expect the Republicans to do jack fucking shit about him.

The new Republican Response to Aborhant Sexual Behavior is so the fuck what.....unless it's a Democrat then we act as shocked and dismayed as we would if one of your own got caught....oops delete the last part of that.


With the choice of Tina Smith, a blow is dealt to the GOP in the MN legislature. A GOP leader is somehow pushed into the newly vacated Lieutenant Governor's spot, upsetting the balance of power away from the GOP.

BTW, that incident reminds me of the one risk here. I don't know if that guy was guilty or innocent. I've read far too little about the allegations.

If he was innocent ... this is why we should be careful about false allegations. Thinking of the real dangers of "lashon hara".

Of course, most people would say he was guilty, which is why he killed himself. If so, even if he was guilty, well, I still believe punishments should fit crimes.

Rape and sexual assault are awful heinous crimes, but I don't think rapists should die.

Of course, I'm just about against the death penalty in almost every case. Not quite every.
