    If reported walk outs don’t have you convinced, perhaps this does: even Netflix passed on Holmes &Watson. Yes, according to Deadline and a tweet from The Wrap’s Alonso Duralde, the streaming giant, who put the stamp on Bright, The Cloverfield Paradox, and this month’s Bird Box, said no to the Will Ferrell and John C.

  • Letters: With Puig gone, Dodgers fans feeling a trade deficit FWC: Letters: With Puig gone, Dodgers fans feeling a trade deficit

    Although the Dodgers get significant credit for two consecutive World Series appearances, the recent trade makes absolutely no sense.
