      What in the honest to God fu--

      Ghost Adventures stars Mark and Debby Constantino were found dead in their daughter's apartment in Sparks, Nevada, on Tuesday, ET has confirmed.

      In what police believe to be a related incident, another unidentified man was found dead inside Debby's apartment. According to Reno police, 53-year-old Mark -- who was estranged from Debby -- is suspected in the deaths of both Debby and the unidentified man. He also took his own life.
      I must say, though, "In what police believe to be a related incident," is a journalistic flourish.

              Yes I did and am reading The House of Morgan . Fascinating. But they're dull. Where's the sex, drugs, and murder?

                I hated that series. I expected something substantive but it was just hagiography brought to you by the CoC. Nice CGI but lousy history.

                  Anyone watch Scream Queens? I just couldn't get that into it. It bills itself as a comedy/horror but the comedy attempts are weak at best. Still haven't made it all the way through the 2 hour premier and deciding if I want to finish it.

                    I watched it distractedly. Given the humor employed, we are not its target audience. It'll be a hit with the teenage and college kids - who don't really watch TV anymore. Smart move, Fox.

                      It looked like a complete rip off of American Horror Story, sanitized for network TV, with a little 2 Broke Girls thrown in. I can't imagine its any better than terrible.

                        I'm working my way through Orange is the New Black season 3. I'm through 4 episodes and so far, it isn't as bad as some have made it out to be. It isn't as good as the first season, but it isn't terrible, IMO. Maybe it goes downhill from here?

                          AHS is so good that I thought I'd give it a try, but from the trailers it sure looks like what you're describing. Too bad.

                            I've never seen AHS, is it supposed to be genuinely scary? Scream Queens is supposed to be a campy horror show. I went into it with that in mind, but the jokes are all aimed at younger people.

                              I've heard that AHS is really friggin' creepy. Of course, it depends on the season, because different strokes for different folks, but it's quality nonetheless. It's on my list to check out, and that is NOT my genre, for what it's worth.
                              Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                                I wouldn't say scary -- nothing on TV can ever really be scary (other than politicians). But it's very disturbing and interesting. If you're going to try it out I'd recommend season 1 or 3. They were more traditional. Season 2 I didn't see. Season 4 was probably the deepest and most fascinating, but it was also extremely unpleasant.

                                AHS is a unique experiment for American television -- it's about very different emotions and reactions than most people are used to in "entertainment." I'm amazed it's lasted -- it is definitely not for everyone.
