Two pieces of bad news for The Good Wife fans: The Good Wife was not on during its regularly scheduled time, and the show announced during the Super Bowl that this season was to be its last!
Julianna Margulies and her team slipped an intense commercial into Superbowl 50’s programming, confirming that the current seventh season of the Emmy-winning series will be the last, and you can check out the trailer below for what’s in store. Ever since TGW became a one-woman show somewhere in Season Six, it lost the ensemble feel that made it a hit. Still, I’m sure there will be some surprise re-emergences in this final season.
After Coldplay’s G rated yawnfest and Bruno Mars‘ being all predictable in his leather pajamas, I gotta say, Beyonce– but more importantly her backup dancers- gave us the most interesting and provocative show last night. The dangers made a stirring political statement during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, as their outfits appear to be a tribute to the Black Panther movement and their “Justice 4 Mario Woods” sign reinforced their political edge.
Bey was flanked by backup dancers who wore berets, black leather and all raised their first, symbolic of the Panthers (albeit they did so next to Tina Knowles, arguably, uh, NOT such a provocative political figure). Below are some of the dancers posing with that sign I talked about that that read “Justice 4 Mario Woods,” the man shot and killed by San Francisco cops.
Bold sign to hold in SF- and a bold choice on the part of Bey’s camp. I LOVE IT!
Coldplay is set to be the 2016 Super Bowl Halftime headliner, if that is news at all. Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, and Will Champion, have signed on to perform for the 50th year of the Super Bowl, which makes me think- is viewership down? Does anybody care anymore?
According to US Weekly, 2013 performer Bruno Mars may be involved in the show, and there might be some other cameos which might make this a time to not get up and recharge on Fritos. Despite previous reports, Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift are not scheduled to take the stage at this time. So, boo.
Coincidentally enough (not at all) Coldplay’s seventh and likely last studio album, A Head Full of Dreams, hits shelves today. Super Bowl 50 is set to take place on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016. That means you have a couple months to be underwhelmed by the new album, and see some of it on stage, with Bruno Mars.
Obviously you know how I feel about this news, but how do YOU FEEL (cause I’m sensitive like that)?
