It's even worse than it appears.

  • I subscribed to Disney-Plus so I could watch Hamilton. #
  • Parts of it I liked, but for the most, it was very Disney. I wasn't expecting that for some reason. I was prepared to be inspired but it never happened. #
  • I then subscribed to Hulu so I could watch Brockmire. #
  • It is very good and very not-Disney. Hank Azaria, the voice for so many great Simpsons characters, plays a washed up baseball play-by-play announcer who ends up in a washed up Pennsylvania town, announcing for a team called The Frackers. #
  • It's LOL funny. Really good. And Azaria, as you might imagine, can play any character that requires character. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
