Persons Unknown Question Mark


So I just caught the first installment of "Persons Unknown," which is a miniseries on NBC Mondays about a bunch of strangers that end up in a hotel/town and don't know why they got there.

This might have ties to the movie of the same name, but I don't know. Never saw it.

It's 1984 meets LOST meets the 4400.

So it's kind of okay, but for some reason as this series continues to pan out, I fear that it will take on a flat tone, which will bore us.

The show has characters from all different backgrounds,

A soldier,

A counselor, who appears to be a mental patient,

A mysterious mystery man on mysticicity.

And even Alan Ruck (Cam from Ferris Bueler's Day Off (Sp))

And the rest :P

There are cameras that are watching these people at all times, and there are people who serve them Chinese food.

That is all we know. However, it might turn out to be exciting. Perhaps more exciting than Deb Messing in the "Starter Wife."

QATFYG: What would you do if you woke up in a hotel with a man in sweater named Joe?

Persons Unknown airs Mondays at 10 PM on NBC.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
