Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

The Finder -Upcoming Fox-TV series set in South Florida, from the creator of "BONES," is “a different kind of detective”; premieres Jan. 12th

Fox-TV video: The Finder

The latest effort from Hart Hanson, creator of Fox's long-running hit "BONES," is a mid-season drama starring Geoff Stults and Michael Clarke Duncan called "The Finder," premiering Thursday January 12th at 9 p.m., immediately following American Idol's results show, which will air while "BONES" is on hiatus and its dynamic star Emily Deschanel recovers from her recent pregnancy.

It's not a criminal/forensics procedural, which while disappointing to some "BONES" fans who may migrate elsewhere for a bit, is yet another TV series set in sunny and criminally sordid South Florida, where we never ever run out of sun or criminals, not to mention, heat and humidity.

To my surprise, that did not save the recent reboot of ABC-TV's "Charlie's Angels," set in Miami, which I thought at the time might lead to Minka-mania hereabouts, on account of star Minka Kelly and ABC's sheer relentless promotion of the show all year.
But I -and ABC- were very wrong.

Probably just as well, since I prefer Minka as sweet, optimistic and positive, not some angry revenge-hungry woman operating on the edge of the law.

Minka Kelly is the Sexiest Woman Alive 2010. Esquire, November 2010.
My Sept. 15th post of this year regarding what turned out to be a premature case of Minka-mania was titled, Minka-mania! Soon, South Florida will be Minka's World: we'll just live in it; Charlie's Angels premieres on ABC-TV next Thursday.

Keeping with the Fox theme, as a pre-Christmas bonus today, I give you Shannon Woodward and $100.
Or, more accurately, tease you with what you can do with $100.

Since I don't watch Fox's Tuesday night show "Raising Hope," the last time I saw Shannon Woodward on TV was two years ago, when she played Linda Cardellini's (Sam Taggart's) younger sister on an episode of E.R. in its last year.

They looked so similar, that, not having read anything about the episode beforehand, when I actually saw her, I almost though she might really be Cardellini's real-life sister I'd never heard of. Nope!

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
