Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on ABC

The time-hopping adventures of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. continue in this week’s installment, “The Totally Excellent Adventures of Mack and The D,” which finds Mack (Henry Simmons) and Deke (Jeff Ward) stranded in 1982. “I’ve kind of isolated myself because of the death of my parents and I haven’t had any contact with Deke,” Simmons told EW about the episode during a set visit last summer. Meanwhile, Deke forms a band as part of his cover in this new era. “Mac’s not too happy about it all,” said Simmons. “This entire episode I was surprised and flattered because they decided to do a little episode with just me and Deke, basically. I also was very excited for it because it allows an opportunity for us to play off each other. The whole episode is funny. It’s got some touching moments, but it’s funny as well.” Come for the ‘80s nostalgia, stay for the murderous robots.

Stateless

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Series Debut

Co-created by Cate Blanchett and inspired by a true story, the six-part Netflix series takes us inside the story of a mentally ill woman who is unlawfully imprisoned in an Australian immigrant detention center. Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale), stars as Sofie (a character based on real-life person, Cornelia Rau) who, after getting involved in a cult-like dance group run by a conniving couple (Blanchett and Dominic West), finds herself in an Australian immigration detention center despite being a permanent resident of the country. There she meets Ameer (Fayssal Bazzi), an Afghan refugee fleeing the Taliban with his wife and young daughters, Cam (Jai Courtney), an Australian father who takes a well-paid job as a guard at the facility and Claire (Asher Keddie), a public servant tasked with controlling the center’s public image. Stateless starts slow, carefully introducing its characters, but the feeling of impending chaos lurks so close to the surface that it’s impossible to relax from the opening frame. As the exploration of the harrowing failures and atrocities of the Australia immigration system are further expounded, that simmering tension bursts into intense hopelessness, conveyed excellently through the core cast’s performances. It’s an unsettling watch, to say the least, but an entirely necessary one, nonetheless. —Ruth Kinane

Meghan Markle Tells Oprah Winfrey It’s ‘Liberating’ to Speak out After Royal Exit

Published

Fans are getting yet another sneak peek at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview with American talk show host Oprah Winfrey, which is scheduled to air on Sunday. In the latest teaser, which was released on Friday, Oprah revealed she actually reached out to Meghan for an interview three years ago, before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal wedding in 2018, and that her request was declined. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Interview With Oprah Winfrey To Air This Weekend – Here’s How to the Watch It on TV and Online?



“So, I just want to say that I called you either February or March 2018 before the wedding asking, ‘Would you please give me an interview?'” Oprah recalled, “And you said, ‘I’m sorry it’s not the right time.’ And finally, we get to sit down and have this conversation.” Meghan said she remembered it well and claimed that she “wasn’t even allowed to have that conversation” with Oprah personally and that other people had to be on the call. Meghan Markle’s Suits Co-Star J Adams Supports Her Against Buckingham Palace’s Bullying Attack (View Tweets).




Looking back, Oprah noted Meghan turned her down “nicely” and said, “‘Perhaps there will be another time when there’s the right time.'” When asked what was right about this time, Meghan pointed to “so many things.” “That we’re on the other side of a lot of, a lot of life experience that’s happened. And also that we have the ability to our own choices in a way that I couldn’t have said yes to you then. That wasn’t my choice to make,” she explained.

Meghan further said, “So, as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct that is different than I think what people imagine it to be, it’s really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say, ‘Yes, I’m ready to talk.’ To say it for yourself….To be able to just make a choice on your own and just be able to speak for yourself.”

Previously released clips also showed Harry opening up. The couple has referred to the British tabloids’ treatment of Meghan as “bullying” before, and in the teaser of the upcoming interview with Oprah, Harry expressed his fear of “history repeating itself,” referring to Princess Diana’s death. “I am just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you, with my wife by my side.



Because I can’t imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago. Because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we have each other,” he said. The forthcoming interview comes weeks after it was confirmed that Harry and Meghan will not be returning as working members of the royal family. The interview titled ‘Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special’ will air Sunday on CBS.

The interview is expected to cover Meghan’s journey from stepping into life as a royal to marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work, and facing intense public pressure. Harry will then join his wife to talk about their historic move to the . The special is produced by Harpo Productions. Terry Wood and Tara Montgomery will executive produce, along with co-executive producer Brian Piotrowicz.

In early 2020, Meghan and Harry had announced that they were quitting royal duties and moving to North America, citing what they said were the unbearable intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media. They live in Santa Barbara, California, and are expecting their second child. Apart from the upcoming interview, the pair struck a major multi-year deal with Netflix in September that will see them developing documentaries, feature films, scripted television shows, and children’s series.

They also recently launched a podcast on Spotify under their Archwell Audio production company, with the goal of building “community through shared experience, narratives, and values.” Harry and Meghan, who tied the knot in 2018, welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison, in May 2019.
