We are only in the third week of November and there has been a lot of excitement about what is releasing in 2020.  Animal Crossing: New Horizons, a Frasier reboot, and a Sonic the Hedgehog movie are just a few of many amazing things to come.  A whole new decade is arriving upon us, which means the stakes will be high for all things in the entertainment industry.

And as the days flow by, even more magnificent news releases.  This next future release story revolves around one of the greatest cannabis-themed series of all time.  It’s the infamous Showtime series known as Weeds.

Weeds began in 2005 featuring weed-dealing mother Nancy Botwin (Mary Louise Parker) as she raises her sons Silas (Hunter Parrish) and Shane (Alexander Gould) in Agrestic, California.  Other accomplices in their adventure include Nancy’s brother-in-law Andy Botwin (Justin Kirk), Doug Benson (Kevin Nealon), and crazed PTA mother Celia Hodes (Elizabeth Perkins).  They run into more than their fair share of trouble as Nancy gets entangled into more illegal activities through her weed dealing.

The show ran for eight seasons, ending back in September 16th, 2012.  Years after the show ended and the series is up on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other streaming services.

But that’s not even the best news about Weeds.  Just recently, Starz and Lionsgate are set to bring Weeds back next year.

The reboot, titled ‘Weeds 4.20’, will pick up where the Botwin family ten years after the series finale.  It will also be set during an era of cannabis legalization.

In a era where cannabis is now fully legal in 1/5th of America, Weeds is sure to make quite a comeback in television.  The societal norms about cannabis have surely changed since the show first began almost fifteen years ago.  Shows like Weeds were responsible for showcasing a different view of the cannabis culture.

Once again, 2020 is looking better and better as far as entertainment goes.  A Weeds reboot will be exciting to watch next year.  Who knows what future will have in store for the Botwins now that cannabis is legalized?

With that, the Botwin family will be returning to their cannabis business…fully legalized.

Sonic The Hedgehog Movie PR Miracle

There has been two flashbacks and one flash-forward this week on MakeSandcastlesNotWar.  The latest episode of AHS: 1984 provided a foreshadowing clue about what season ten may be (Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, other myths!).  Disney+ was just released, which allows Disney fans to stream both old and new TV series/movies throughout the years.  And finally there was news that Frasier is planning to be rebooted next year (But I don’t know what to do about those Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs).

Being that it is Friday, its only fitting that we discuss yet another flashback post for #FlashbackFriday.  Today’s flashback-themed post revolves around the PR nightmare involving the notorious Sonic the Hedgehog.

Back in May, Sonic the Hedgehog was utilized for the new live-action film Sonic the Hedgehog.  The trailer showcased a presentation of Sonic that was just…BAD… REALLY, REALLY BAD.

Audiences nationwide panned the idea of the live-action Sonic, pointing out various features that don’t fit with the original character.  The PR nightmare got so huge that hundreds of thousands of users signed a petition online for an immediate change for the look of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Half a year later and a new trailer dropped for Sonic the Hedgehog, featuring a brand-new look for Sonic.  The differences between the two are just absolutely jaw-dropping.

The new Sonic the Hedgehog bears a much similar resemblance to the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series.  Larger eyes, spikier hair, tanner fur on his body.  And the best part? No creepy human teeth!

Sonic the Hedgehog will release in February 2020.  After a grueling few months, Sonic finally got a much-deserved makeover.  This is one of those PR nightmares that rejuvenated to become a PR miracle.  All it needed was enough audience attention in order to get to the root of the problem.  What came as a result was a much more anticipated live-action film of Sonic.

This PR miracle caps off a great week of flashbacks.  Sonic the Hedgehog will drum up more anticipation when it releases in the coming year.

One of the most popular 90s sitcom series I have been watching on the Netflix the past few months is FrasierFrasier is about the life of snooty, yet lovable Dr. Fraiser Crane (Kelsey Grammar) who returns to his home city of Seattle.  He continues his work as a psychiatrist after his move from Boston, with the help of his brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce).  Dr. Crane hosts his own radio show with Roz (Peri Gilpin) where he helps out with other callers’ personal problems.  He also resides with his father Martin Crane (John Mahoney) and personal Trainer Daphne Moon (Jane Leeves).

Frasier was one of the most successful sitcoms at the time, raking in a total of thirty-seven Primetime Emmy Awards since the show began.  It spurred as one of the greatest spin-offs from the previous series Cheers (which was also one of the best as well).  The series ran for eleven seasons, ending back in May 13th, 2004.  Over fifteen years later and Frasier is still running strong in syndication.

But interestingly enough, Dr. Frasier Crane may be listening once again.

Kelsey Grammar recently announced that a Frasier reboot is in the works.  The only news set in plan is that Frasier will be in a different city and it will continue Dr. Frasier Crane’s ongoing quest for love.  The slated return of Frasier is expected to release in Summer 2020.

A Frasier reboot is the best publicity news I’ve heard all week.  I have been absolutely enjoying Fraiser on Netflix and I am excited to see what is to come next year.  Frasier will surely be a hit, especially in these modern times.

With that, I end this magnificent news with this…

Maybe, but I got you pegged

But I don’t know what to do with those Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs

This week we are headed to our LAST episode of AHS: 1984.  The nostalgic 80s-themed chapter is coming to an end through one final showdown.  All of the characters are back in Camp Redwood, facing off against their own worst enemies.

But alas, there is the silver lining of season ten coming out in the not-so-distant future.  American Horror Story is being renewed for another season and audiences are already pondering over what the next chapter will be.

Interestingly enough, a major hint was dropped during the beginning of the latest episode ‘Rest in Pieces’.  It happens when Donna and Brooke run into National Enquirer reporter Stacey Phillips.  At one point, Stacey says, “Back in the ‘70s, all anyone cared about was Bigfoot, aliens, the Loch Ness Monster.  All that Leonard Nimoy In Search Of shit.”

This was the quote that sparked a light bulb that flashed all across the internet.  Stacey directly referenced an infamous show in the 1970s called In Search Of… about searching for creatures such as aliens, the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and others.

Could the next season of American Horror Story be about hidden creatures?  Are we going to join the search for monsters like the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot?  Is it going to be set in the 1970s?  Will it feature flashbacks or give us a glimpse into the future?

It is much too early to find any answers about season ten.  For now, we can take this week to enjoy what will be the LAST episode of AHS: 1984.

Catch the final showdown of AHS: 1984 this Wednesday night on FX.
