This post contains spoilers for the whole first season of Obi-Wan Kenobi (now streaming on Disney+ ) and the season to date of Star Trek : Strange New Worlds (now streaming on Paramount+ ). There’s plenty of overlap between the audiences for Star Wars and Star Trek , yet for decades the two fan bases have been pitted against each other like reluctant gladiators dropped into an arena (whether the one where a shirtless Captain Kirk fought in “The Gamesters of Triskelion” or the one where Padme Amidala got her midriff exposed in Attack of the Clones ).

She said she felt “just absolute sadness and just despair, truly, because it’s the beginning of many, many kinds of Supreme Court decisions that, personally, I think are going to set us back. And as the film illustrates, this is a very politically charged issue, abortion rights. This is really about power and [ignores] the lives of many women who are going to be hurt by this decision.” The new HBO documentary The … [Read more...] about ‘The Janes’ And ‘Reversing Roe’ Directors On Supreme Court’s Roe V.

Getty Awful news out of Red Sox nation ... Drago -- the German Shepherd who became famous for roaming the field at Fenway Park over the past few years -- has died at 10 years old. The pup's owner, Red Sox head groundskeeper Dave Mellor , mourned the passing in a message to the Associated Press this week.
