Shhh… Kathryn Is… Tweeting

kathryn_twitter_002_20180613Sadly, Kathryn did not feature in episode three of Reverie “No More Mr Nice Guy” broadcast this week.  I tell a lie, actually she did appear, but only in a brief clip in the “previously on…” segment at the beginning.  It was there to reminder us of Charlie (Dennis Haysbert) expressing concern for Mara (Sarah Shahi) last week.  Kathryn was a bonus feature.  Collateral benefit if you will.

Possibly as a way to help make up for her not being in the show Kathryn Tweeted up a storm responding to viewers’ questions.  Those of us on this side of the pond most likely missed out due to time zone differences :-(

In amongst the posts was the picture you see to the right of her and co-star Jessica Lu.

jessica_lu_video_004_20180614Over the last few weeks Jessica has posted several photos and short videos of the two of them.  The videos are known as “Après Exitus With Kat & Jes”.  They are very funny snippets of them saying odd things with added effects to put things like glasses and cat noses their faces.  I’ve included many of these images and videos as they’ve appeared in the KM UK Gallery in the Twitter & Instagram album under Miscellaneous.

The latest “Après Exitus” (a reference to it being after the end of the show no doubt) sees our stars ponder the lack of Monica (Kathryn) in the episode, and settle the debate on whether Kathryn does her own stunts.

Reverie S01E05 – Press Release

artwork_002Reverie season 1, episode 5: “Altum Somnum”

‘Altum Somnum’ translates from Latin as ‘deep sleep’.

As we get into the heart of the 10-part season we get an episode with some guaranteed Kathryn.

Official Press Release:

06/27/2018 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Wednesday) : Monica Shaw (Kathryn Morris) seeks help from the team after a bombing kills dozens of people. Mara (Sarah Shahi) must dive into the mind of a coma victim to try and identify the perpetrator. Dennis Haysbert, Sendhil Ramamurthy and Jessica Lu also star.

 

Rivera On Reverie

artwork_002Not long left to go until Reverie premières on the American NBC network.

We have just enough time to squeeze in another snippet from an article about the show.

There have been many mentions of other TV shows and movies that have similar themes and ideas as Reverie in the numerous articles about the new drama series.  The films like Inception and The Lawnmower Man, the book Through The Looking-Glass, a mid-90s virtual reality-based TV show VR.5.  That kind of thing.

Another is the recent hit movie Ready Player One.  Other than sharing a production company, Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, virtual reality is the obvious point of comparison.  However, Brittany Rivera (great name) at the Fandom website has dug a little deeper into the two to compare the characters.

Brittany makes the point that the major roles in RPO are male and they have direct parallels in female form in Reverie.  What’s more the leading ladies (Sarah Shahi, Jessica Lu, and Kathryn) are of greater ethnic diversity than the predominantly white men of RPO.

Here’s how the Fandom article describes one of those women:

Monica Shaw (Kathryn Morris) is the wildcard of Reverie. She’s a mysterious venture capitalist with an interest in Onira-Tech. So far, it seems she is the most like Sorrento, Ready Player One‘s bad guy. She’s a businesswoman with her own agenda who cannot be trusted. Monica also has ties to the Department of Defense so her plans for Reverie are about how she can exploit the program for her own purposes.

Sarah Shahi Toes The TVLine

poster_003As the lead of the show, and a significant reason for the show being broadcast, Sarah Shahi is understandably shouldering much of the burden of promoting Reverie.

One of the many interviews Sarah’s done in the past few weeks was with TVLine website’s Matt Webb Mitovich.  This one is of note to us because further mention was made of Kathryn’s role as Department Of Defence official Monica Shaw and the military’s interest in the VR technology.

You can read the complete interview on the TVLine website HERE but is the relevant excerpt:

TVLine: Talk about the larger mythology that the show might explore regarding the tech, its uses and abuses, the recruitment of Mara….

Sarah: Absolutely, there are some conspiracies regarding the technology. The character that Kathryn Morris plays, she constantly straddles the line between using this technology for good and then abusing it for government purposes. We have an episode, actually, where the military gets involved. They are holding a kid hostage for information in the reverie, so I have to go in…. I mean, look, it’s [produced by Steven Spielberg’s] Amblin, right? Ready Player One made a big splash and similar to how that movie was just such a ride, that’s exactly what this show is. It’s a ride.

Just a few days to go now.

Happy Mother’s Day – Updated

wallpaper_266_1600x1200_ginaFrom everyone here at KM UK

To our great shame it seems to have been a few years since we did this.

The complication of the varying time that Mother’s Day/Mothering Sunday happens in different countries and cultures around the world, and the limited relevance to this site, makes celebrating the occasion here difficult.  This is an England-based site and here we have the day in March.  In America it is today.

Site policy means we stay clear of Kathryn’s private life but we could not ignore her becoming a mother to twin boys in 2013.  This gave us a good excuse to start marking the US version of Mother’s Day.

So, having said all that Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers around the world.

To help decorate today’s post I’ve used an image created by friend of the site Gina You can find the picture, and many, many others in the Fan Art section of the Gallery.

Update:  Father to Kathryn’s twin boys Johnny Messner posted a message on social media with a picture, as seen here:

This says It all!!! The rest will be to her! Best momma ever ! Pulled trolls out of nowhere on their 4th Birthday within 20 minutes!!! Cyborg momma
