A source close to Varun told IANS, "It will be around 40 people from both the family gather for the occasion. They will stay in a resort in Alibaug from January 22 to January 26 and then the family and the couple return to Mumbai. So far, that is the information I can share.

The Monkees wound up having artistic life outside of their NBC show, becoming a real band that fought to take control over their music in a way no one expected when Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, Mike Nesmith, and Peter Tork were assembled as a pre-fab foursome.

Going with The Monkees instead implies that Wanda may soon be seizing control over whatever is happening — or that what we’re seeing is the result of her already doing exactly that. Either way, it’s good to have the story finally moving, and to see the series step confidently into a different era of television. … [Read more...] about ‘WandaVision’ Recap: Sibling Revelry

Sanders, for his part, seemed generally amused, though mainly unfazed by his latest meme-ification.
