    ‘Thriller Live’ is still Planets better than anything Cirque du Soleil and the
    £$tate have put out post-2009. Granted, while not perfect, it actually does it with genuine heart (and a little flare). ❤MJ∞

    Second episode, first guest and a great episode, thank you! I like how you celebrate that Thriller Live! has been renewed when, writing this in 2020, even through the 2019 debacle, it is still running and even touring the UK!
    Thank you for sharing the article by Charles Thomson, a rewarded journalist, on the media’s mad handling of the 2005 trial amd his interview of Jermaine.
