It’s been a couple weekends now since Amazon Prime Video premiered Swarm , the pitch-black thriller/dramedy that points its satirical arrow at that rabid fan army known as the Beyhive . Dominique Fishback ( Judas and the Black Messiah ) plays Dre, a young, Black Houston woman who spends seven episodes doing two things: obsessing over Ni’Jah, a Beyoncé -ish pop icon; and killing anyone who talks trash about Ni’Jah online or stands in the way of Dre getting close to the star. Chloe Bailey (a Beyoncé protege), Snowfall kingpin Damson Idris, Michael Jackson offspring Paris Jackson, and Billie Eilish (a pop icon herself) play some of the unfortunate people Fishback’s natural born killer encounters. The show, co-created by actor/musician Donald Glover, has divided both critics and audiences. On Rotten Tomatoes , it has an 85 percent, while the audience score is 72 percent.

Why an ‘artificial’ Le Mans finish is more likely in 2023
Listen to this article What a story it would be if the Le Mans 24 Hours produced a grandstand finish — perhaps the closest ever in its history — in this the centenary year for the French enduro. I reckon there’s a decent chance of its happening as the clock strikes four on 11 June, and I’m not making that prediction because the sell-out crowd is going to be watching one of the best fields in the top class in years with Toyota, Ferrari, Porsche et al. I’m saying it because there has been a rule change for 2023 that makes it all the more likely. A close finish would be great for the spectators massed in the old stands and on the terracing opposite the pits, and equally great for TV and the profile of the race as the World Endurance Championship kicks on into what is sure to be a halcyon age. But what if it is totally artificial? Is that what we really want to be talking and writing about on Sunday evening of the second weekend of June? The reason the odds have shortened on … [Read more...] about Why an ‘artificial’ Le Mans finish is more likely in 2023
