Mets 2021 Season Preview

Mets fans had waited a long time for an offseason like the one they are coming off of, but it finally came to fruition when they landed a new, lucrative owner and a superstar shortstop.

Steve Cohen, a hedge fund manager and life-long Mets fan worth over $10 billion, took over the reins of the Mets in November from previous owners, the Wilpons.

“The amount of work that’s going to be required here is more than a hobby,” Cohen said at his introductory press conference. “I consider it something that I’m essentially doing it for the fans. When I really thought about this, I can make millions of people happy. And what an incredible opportunity that is.”

Cohen brought back former Mets general manager Sandy Alderson to be the team president, and together they orchestrated an offseason that saw the team from Queens commit nearly $110 million to free agents.

The biggest splash came when the Mets pulled off a stunning trade with the Cleveland Indians, where they were able to land 27-year-old All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco. In addition, New York was able to sign All-Star catcher James McCann, starting pitcher Taijuan Walker, hard-throwing reliever Trevor May and added depth with outfielder Kevin Pillar and utility man Jonathan Villar.

Insert those players to a roster that already had the game’s best pitcher, in two-time Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom, the 2019 Rookie of the Year Pete Alonso and a myriad of young talent, the Mets come into the 2021 season with one of the deepest offenses and pitching rotations on paper.

Will it be enough to get them over the top and back to the postseason for the first time since 2016? Here’s a look at what they’ll bring to the table this season in an effort to get back to October:

‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 4B Preview

When “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” returns for the back half of season four, superstar cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi makes her triumphant return to the reality franchise.

The MTV press release teases:

Following a wildly memorable first half of season four, everyone’s favorite roommates return to take their iconic family vacation “Shore” bubble to The Poconos for the first time ever.

Last trip brought the family back together following the infamous bridesmaids’ speech, and now, once again, the roommates are packing up and inviting their friends, family and loved ones for a Jersey-style family vacation. Between engagements, birthdays and gender reveals, there’s plenty to celebrate on this trip.

From Vinny getting pro-wrestling-body-slammed by Jenni’s boyfriend and a new definition of “Italian Ice” to the first, and maybe last, Jersey Shore Family Vacation Talent Show, this season features some of the most unexpected moments yet. But the biggest Jerzday surprise comes when Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi returns to shake things up.

In a preview interview with TooFab, cast member Angelina Pivarnick said that things are definitely interesting when Polizzi returns — after all, the last time the two women saw each other was when Polizzi gave a rather mean-spirited bridesmaid speech at Pivarnick’s wedding.

“We obviously didn’t leave off on the best terms. I definitely wanted to have that sit down with her I had with the girls. You’ll see how that plays out this season,” said Pivarnick, adding, “I kind of just had my own, in my own head what I was gonna say with her, what I wanted to hash out with her and you’ll definitely see how that plays out when we have that sit-down.”

Jenni “JWoww” Farley added, “The way that they talked to each other was wild. It’s probably my most favorite part of the season that I’m looking forward to, is when they get together and have a conversation. I just think it just got reckless, which is what I loved the most about us.”

“Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

‘Top Gear America’ Hosts Race an IndyCar in Exclusive Clip [WATCH]

‘Top Gear America’ Hosts Race an IndyCar in Exclusive Clip [WATCH]

The second half of “Top Gear America” Season 1 continues on Friday with a special episode focused on the “ultimate driver’s car.” Prior to the new episode airing on the MotorTrend streaming app, the company released an exclusive clip showcasing a member of the IndyCar family. Hosts Dax Shepard, Rob Corddry, and Jethro Bovingdon attempt to outrun a professional IndyCar driver in a C8 Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche GT4, and a Lotus Evora.

The brief clip does not detail the entire race, but it provides a glimpse at the competition brewing on the race track. Corddry climbs into the passenger seat of a Honda IndyCar driven by Stefan Wilson, who will make his third Indy 500 start in 2021. Bovingdon lines up on the start/finish line in his yellow Porsche GT4 in preparation for his upcoming race.

“I’m up first in the passenger seat of the IndyCar, and I can not wait to have my face ripped off by G-forces,” Corddry states in the exclusive clip. “And I get to do it while hunting the most dangerous game — man. Or, in this case, Jethro.”

‘Top Gear America’ also previously highlighted NASCAR for a unique segment

While the challenge from Friday’s episode features an IndyCar, it is not the first time that the automotive show has heavily discussed popular motorsports. One of the first episodes of “Top Gear America” featured Shepard testing out a Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody to determine where it fits in modern America.

During his time behind the wheel, Shepard came to a startling revelation. He decided that the Hellcat is not simply a drag race monster. It is also a street-legal version of the vehicles racing around oval tracks. Granted, Dodge has not been part of NASCAR for many years, but Shepard still chose to prove his point with a special display.

“This long, sleek body is calling for something,” Shepard said. “It’s actually reminding me of [Robert] Duvall in ‘Days of Thunder’ talking about the oil pan being oversized to cut the wind down, 30-40 extra horsepower, a big fuel line for a gallon of gas. The smooth, sleek-shaped body, smooth as a bullet. That’s what this car is. This is a NASCAR.”

Shepard tested out his theory by heading to Arizona Speedway, a 3/8-mile oval in San Tan Valley. This short track has hosted Late Model cars, ASCS Wing Sprint Cars, and modified stock cars among other vehicles. ‘Top Gear America’ used the dirt track to test out a Hellcat, providing Shepard with the opportunity to slide around while detailing the history of Dodge in NASCAR and how Dodge once topped 200 mph.

The first season of ‘Top Gear America’ continues with more automotive shenanigans

GettyTop Gear America hosts meet with the press

There are currently seven episodes of “Top Gear America” available on the MotorTrend app, and the eighth will arrive on Friday to highlight the IndyCar race. Following the action-packed race, the season will continue with a truck adventure in Texas, a test of off-road toys in the Mojave Desert, and a battle between childhood “poster” cars.

As new hosts of a classic brand, Shepard, Corddry, and Bovingdon faced massive scrutiny as they approached the first season of “Top Gear America.” There were questions about whether they would try to emulate the old British hosts — Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May — or if they would try to forge a similar path to “Top Gear US.” The answer is neither.

In the first seven episodes, the new hosts have avoided filming segments in a studio or putting a celebrity in a reasonably-priced car. Instead, they put cars on full display for streamlined episodes. Part of the change is due to COVID-19, but the first season has still continued to focus solely on fast cars, unique road trips, and the occasional explosion. Of course, Shepard is involved, so he has jumped multiple vehicles to entertain himself, the viewers, and his co-hosts.

The first seven episodes of “Top Gear America” are available exclusively on the MotorTrend app, with new episodes releasing each Friday. The streaming service runs $4.99 per month or $44.99 for a one-year subscription. MotorTrend OnDemand provides an ad-free experience and access to numerous shows, such as “Fast N’ Loud” and the British “Top Gear.”

‘Hysterical’ Preview

The world of stand-up comedy is a male-dominated field. According to the FX press release for “Hysterical,” “only a tiny handful of women have broken out of the brutal world of comedy clubs to become household names.” This documentary is going to explore the rise of female stand-up comedians.

The press release continues:

After decades of fighting for a place in the spotlight, things have finally shifted. Hysterical, a feature documentary from director Andrea Nevins (“Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie”), journeys backstage and on the road with veteran comedians, rising stars and novices to discover how an intrepid group of boundary-breaking females are changing the game and exploring what it takes to become the voices of their generation and their gender.

Hysterical takes an intimate look behind the velvet curtains and beer-soaked clubs of the comedy scene into the lives of the women shattering comedy’s glass ceiling with raucous laughter and perfectly timed punch lines. From newcomers to superstars, the funniest women in comedy drop the mic with their heartfelt struggles, personal stories and hilariously bold opinions. Featuring Kelly Bachman, Margaret Cho, Fortune Feimster, Rachel Feinstein, Marina Franklin, Nikki Glaser, Judy Gold, Kathy Griffin, Jessica Kirson, Lisa Lampanelli, Wendy Liebman, Carmen Lynch, Bonnie McFarlane, Sherri Shepherd and Iliza Shlesinger.

According to the reviews of the documentary, it does not shy away from some harsh truths. The Hollywood Reporter’s review of the documentary says, “While the subjects delve into some of their most haunting professional traumas, from groping and stalking male fans to attempted sexual assault, others divulge their deepest doubts and crushed self-esteem.

And IndieWire writes, “[‘Hysterical’] really leans into that fact, not just by reminding us that yes, women had a hard time breaking into the industry, but also how often men — even friends of the female comics themselves — didn’t really see anything wrong with it. Nevins’ documentary is a fierce, frustrating, and utterly amazing look at the strength of these women comics, and how they weaponized their trauma to make us (and themselves) laugh through their tears.”

“Hysterical” premieres Friday, April 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
