I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider and the equally short-lived Death Ray and Filmstar magazines; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
Josh Gad’s ‘Reunited Apart videos’ have been among the highlights of the Covid lockdown Zoom videos for charity. Bringing together the casts of classic movies (predominantly from the 80s), we’ve had reunions of the cast and crew of not just Back to the Future, but Splash and Lord of the Rings as well.
However, Gad isn’t quite done. While not ‘saving the best for last’, since they’ve all been good, he’s actually managed to organise reunions for Ghostbusters and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as well. That’s impressive, don’t you think?
Now the cast of the much-missed Happy Endings – Adam Pall, Casey Wilson, Damon Wayans Jr, Eliza Coupe, Zachary Knighton and Elisha Cuthbert – have got in on the act to make a brand new, lockdown-set episode for charity. There’s even a Q&A at the end.
