Paris Accord-ing To Trump – April Fool

in_paris_004

To say the least, a recent post here (well, HERE) on KM UK had us a little confused.  It involved a video of Kathryn having breakfast with someone at a street-side café in Paris.  No context, no date, no name, no pack drill.  There was scrambled eggs and coffee though!

Since then we’ve been contacted by a trusted source in France regarding the reason for Kathryn’s unexplained appearance in Paris.

A little background.  Two years ago, a Mr (let me check my notes…) Donald J Trump (President of America apparently) got the U.S. to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.  This was a global agreement to cut CO2 emissions.  All the nations of the world had signed up to it, apart from a couple of cheeky hold-outs that wanted it to go further than it did.

However, it looks like some facts have finally manage to penetrate deeply enough to make Mr Trump reconsider his country’s position.  That and the personal financial loss of his Florida-based private club Mar-a-Lago being due to disappear underwater in the next 20 years.  Try as he might, Mr Trump could not get the local zoning commission to declare the property as a 10,000 sq mile (there’d be no wall to say where it ended!) luxury water park, marina and yacht club.

But how does a man of Mr Trump’s international standing and reputation go about reversing such a major decision whilst saving face?  We have been informed that a plan was put in place last year.  What he needed was a completely believable and credible envoy to act on his behalf.  Someone that could remain detached, whilst dropping a metaphorical pebble of change in the actual warming oceans.  Project Aloof Ripl (txtspk for ripple) was initiated and Kathryn agreed to take on the momentous role, travelling to France to make contact with the powers that be in Europe.

Information passed to KM UK suggests that the video posted on YouTube was a coded report back to Mr Trump.  The man eating breakfast with Kathryn is her Paris contact known as Little Chef.  The fact that it was sunny and Kathryn was wearing a t-shirt, despite being filmed in February in the depths of a French winter, is a message home that the scientific evidence on temperature rises has been proven to be correct.  The references to how much more good food you could get for €12 in Paris than for the equivalent amount in Los Angeles, is to indicate that the economic issues for the U.S. are not as bad as were feared and the French suggested solution is workable.  The croissant was just a croissant.

As far fetched as this all might sound, let us just hope that there is truth behind it.

Update:  Yes, this was my annual attempt at upping the silly on this site for April Fools Day.

Kathryn’s Really In The Dirt

the_dirt_premiere_008A noteworthy update to yesterday’s public appearance post.

Based on the information available at the time I could see no connection between Kathryn and this new Mötley Crüe biopic, The Dirt, due on Netflix this week.

Turns out there was more to this than just a red carpet appearance.  Happy to issue a correction on this issue.

According to a new revision on the IMDb page for the movie Kathryn is actually in it.  Her character is called Deana.  The first connection I’ve managed to make between the band and Deana is Nikki Sixx’s mother.  Her name Deana Richards.

Expect to see more from us on this soon.

Colony S1 Gets ‘Pick’ed Up

colony_banner_2880x1260
I’m going to state up front that I am not sure if this is a new thing or not.  I may have not noticed this before because I haven’t been keeping a close eye on such things.

Tomorrow (15th Jan) Pick TV in the UK is showing the USA Network sci-fi-ish drama series Colony from episode one.  It starts at 10pm.  This could very well be a première for the channel.

Pick is one of Sky Televisions many channels, it used to be called Sky 3, and is available on the British free-to-air Freeview system as channel 11.  The schedules are largely made up of slightly older show repeats.

For those that haven’t been paying attention, Colony involves a near future Earth that has been invaded by an alien force.  They have contained what is left of the human population inside massive walled city ‘colonies’.  People are largely free to go about their lives but are under constant surveillance and will be banished to ‘The Factory’ for disobedience.  The show focuses on one particular family headed up by Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break).  She runs a bar in Los Angeles and he is an ex-FBI agent recruited by the ‘powers that be’ as part of a human law enforcement team working on behalf of the aliens to root out rebellious elements.  Only, he’s not entirely loyal to his employers.

We only really covered season 1 here on KM UK because that is the one Kathryn starred in.  Her character of Charlotte Burgess, the wife of a Adrian Pasdar’s (Heroes) ambitious (and keen to stay alive) politician, was in just 3 episodes (plus a few ‘previously on’ flashbacks).  We have lots of Gallery content to enjoy.

Colony first aired in America in very early 2016 and came to the UK on Sky 1 in April of that year.  A DVD release came not too long afterwards.  Since then the show has had two more seasons, with a major shift in setting for the 3rd, but it was cancelled last summer.

Reverie Comes To An End

The silence made this virtually (a small joke there to lighten the mood!) inevitable news.

Reverie has been cancelled after just the one season, as reported by the Deadline site HERE.

Sadly the numbers didn’t stack up for the little sci-fi-ish drama series that could.  Host network, NBC has decided not to renew for a second run.

Here on KM UK we’d like to thank all those involved in the show for trying something a bit different and bringing Kathryn back to our small screens.

KM UK, however, is not yet done with the show.  We’ll be returning to it with new and improved images.

Japanese Cold Case Season 2 Due Soon

Cold_Case_Japan_Promo_photo_1600x1190It has been two years but the Kanagawa Prefectural Police’s First Investigative Division squad are returning to Japanese television screens in the autumn.

The WOWOW TV network is airing 10 new episodes of their version of Cold Case starting on the 13th of October.  WOWOW is the Japanese home of the original American version too.

Yo Yoshida returns as the Japanese Lilly Rush.  Her character is called Yuri Ishikawa and, as I noted previously, in a nice touch Yuri is Japanese for Lily.  The rest of the core cast looks to be the same as in season 1 too.

Read all the details on the WOWOW website HERE.

If you know of a localised version of Cold Case in your part of the world then please do let me know.
