Be My Valentine

banner_039_430x239_zoe

To Kathryn,
with great affection

Happy Valentine’s Day

These days we seem be ever more narrowing our focus on the ‘app’ rather than looking at the wider picture of ‘happy’.  Why don’t we try being Kinder to each other instead of the digital alternatives?

Anyway, after a number of years doing this I’m beginning to suspect that these entreaties are not having the desired effect.  Perhaps persistence becomes endearing, eventually?

Will you be my Valentine this year, Kathryn?  It doesn’t to be today, if you’re busy, tomorrow’s OK too :-)

I’ve gone back Zoé’s amazing banner image this year.  It just works so well and will always be one my favourite images.  It shows what the Fan Art section of KM UK Gallery is for.  Thanks again to Zoé.

Resurrection Of A Cheerleader

doac_27A great (and I use the word advisedly) tradition of the media industry is remaking older tv shows/films/etc. and I’ve found out that the Lifetime Network in the US has been at it.  The new TV movie was first aired at the weekend.

To be fair to them they’ve not ‘done a Spider-man’ and made a three versions in less than 20 years.  Lifetime went back to 1994 for Death Of A Cheerleader, also known as A Friend To Die For.  Based on a true story, the drama dealt with the murder of a high-school girl by one of her classmates.  Kathryn had a small role as a Goth teenager, bullied for being different by our victim the popular girl as played by Tori Spelling.  It was one of Kathryn’s early on screen performances.

Often in these remakes they like to try and draw in fans of the original by casting someone from it in the new one.  As the actor will have aged it often means a child in the first becomes a parent, possibly of the same character.  From what I can see they haven’t done that, but they have cast Kellie Martin, the original teen killer, as a police detective in the remake.  I guess they can go with the idea of her having to catch her teenage self.  Sadly they didn’t go for Kathryn as well.  She could have been a cool art teacher with a dark streak, or an English teacher keen on Gothic horrors.  Oh well.

2019’s DOAC will have a number of updates brought about by a quarter of a century of of changes.  I’m sure mobilephones and social media play their parts, along with some adjustments to take into account the way we view certain behaviours etc.

But rather than me make pronouncements on a TV movie I haven’t seen why not read a review of the new version of Death Of A Cheerlader by Mads Lennon (now that’s a name!) over at the Hidden Remote website HERE.

As a comparison why not check out Trevor Wells’ article about the original 1994, conveniently posted very recently, on the Geeks Media site HERE.

They both mention Kathryn and her character so get props from us.

KM UK briefly covered Death Of A Cheerleader way back in 2011 HERE.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATHRYN!

banner_177_800x376_dianekmfanHappy Birthday Kathryn!

From all your fans at KM UK

Every so often one of those special birthdays comes around.  One that is seen as more significant than others.  Today is one of those days.  It’s Kathryn’s birthday!  What did you think I was going to say?  I would never!

Having been in Reverie, we hope that Kathryn is in a reverie today of all days.

As has become tradition here on KM UK we like to mark such a special occasion with some fan-created artwork.  Uber-fan Diane (who recently celebrated her own birthday) has kindly supplied us with the image above.  She drew from promotional images of Kathryn’s appearance in the TV show Reverie to give us the banner seen above.

This new picture joins the many hundreds of wallpapers, banners, avatars etc. that can be found KM UK fan art gallery. All contributions, on any or no topic, are welcome.  Contact me if you’d like to see your works of art included.

Happy Birthday to Jameson & Rocco

Best wishes from everyone at KM UK.

Kathryn and Johnny’s twin boys have reached the grand old age of 5 today.  They grow up so fast these days…

Jeremy Meets The Standard

jeremy_ratchford_001_430x180

The Standard being The St. Catharines Standard newspaper from the area of Ontario, Canada, that Jeremy Ratchford (Nick Vera in CC) hails from.  Jeremy is from Kitchener, which is around 60 miles from St. Catharines, which is just a long stone’s throw away from the famous Niagara Falls.

Normally I wouldn’t reference a newspaper interview like this but The Standard has published Joel Rubinoff’s interview with Jeremy, which is part of a series of interviews with significant locals involved in the arts and entertainments sector, in which he mentions Kathryn several times.

From the transcript Joel and Jeremy had an interesting and entertaining chat a little outside the normal brief career summary, refer to thing they are known for, tell us about your latest project, celebrity interview.  I’ll leave you to read the whole thing HERE on The Standard’s website.

On KM UK we’ll focus on the Kathryn references.  First up Joel asks about Jeremy bringing up 3 boys.

Joel: Kathryn Morris, your “Cold Case” co-star, has four-year-old twins. Do you confer with her about child-rearing?

Jeremy:  She and I talk all the time about what’s best for the lads. Five boys between us. She hooked us up with a summer camp last year. My eldest did community service to apply to his high school credits and my little men did ‘vaulting’ on horses.

Joel:  Series pitch: Jeremy Ratchford and Kathryn Morris play former cop show co-stars who live near each other and discuss parenting issues.

Jeremy:  Might work as a podcast?

I know we’d all listen to that!  It is nice to learn that the ex-workmates are in regular contact still.

Next up are some less than predictable ideas from Jeremy in answer to one of the few more predictable questions:

Joel:  If “Cold Case” came back today, how would it be different?

Jeremy:  Kathryn would be the head of the FBI. Thom and I would have a P.I. business called “Private Eyes Are Watching You,” with our jingle provided by Hall & Oates. Danny would have given up his cop life to follow his dream of organic magic. Tracy becomes the first female police chief of Philly. John — after an undercover operation — grows his hair out and plays bongos in a touring Grateful Dead cover band. Somehow we all reunite to discover if Elvis is still alive.

Head of the FBI is not currently the sort-after job it was back in 2010.  Did we ever see Scotty (Danny Pino) show an interest in magic.  And what’s organic magic?  Making free-range carrots disappear?  We definitely want to see John (John Finn) as a serious ‘Deadhead’ and the team reunite to find Big Foot :-)

Thanks to Joel and Jeremy.

Yes, I’ve noticed the Catharines/Kathryn thing :-)
