Binge-Watching (aka Just When I Thought I Was Out They Pull Me Back In)

Has this ever happened to you? You innocently start a new show. Maybe someone made a suggestion and it sounded interesting, so you follow the thread to see where it takes you. Once you hit the point of no return, which depending on the show can be anywhere from episode 1 (LOST) to episode 4Continue reading “Binge-Watching (aka Just When I Thought I Was Out They Pull Me Back In)”

Farewell Downton

Last night we said goodbye to Downton Abbey after 6 seasons of shocks and awww’s. It has been a wild ride. And I can’t help feeling that we (the fans of Downton) will be hard pressed to find a replacement for this show! There is really nothing else like it out there. And while PBSContinue reading “Farewell Downton”

Platonic Friendlationships

Downton Abbey Season 6 Spoilers Ahead…       I confess. As I’ve watched Downton Abbey the last 2 seasons, I’ve come to wish that Branson and Mary would try and make a go of it. After all, they get along famously and make each other genuinely better people (especially in Mary’s case.) Plus littleContinue reading “Platonic Friendlationships”

Revelation

I did the same thing to them that every well-meaning friend and relative had ever done to me. And I didn’t like it…

A Well Built Ship

I was watching an episode of Gilmore Girls (ok I watched 7) and I’ll admit, I had a momentary lapse. It was an episode from season 7, near the end of the show and Lorelai was married to Christopher. I sent a hasty tweet that said: “Ok, I l-l-love Luke and Lorelai, but I couldaContinue reading “A Well Built Ship”

The Shows Are Strong

Fall is here. And that means pumpkin spice lattes, corn mazes and brand new seasons of television. Here’s what I’m watching (in no particular order!) Proceed with caution…there be spoilers ahead. Gotham Dear Fox, way to turn this dud around. Last season really dipped around the 5th or 6th episode. The best parts of the showContinue reading “The Shows Are Strong”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 17

Day 17 – Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie Out of all the classic 50’s and 60’s TV shows, I think I Dream of Jeannie is probably my favorite one. Sure, it wasn’t exactly a tale of women’s liberation. But Barbara Eden as Jeannie was delightful and her never ending efforts to end up with MajorContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 17”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 15

Day 15: Kimmy Gibbler from Full House A couple months ago, the news broke that Netflix and John Stamos were working on a Full House spin off, Fuller House. Not only will Candace Cameron Bure’s, DJ Tanner be coming back to the small screen,  but her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and of course, DJ’s bestContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 15”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 14

Day 14: Gidget from Gidget With summer fast approaching (summer officially begins on Sunday, June 21st), one can’t help but think of sunny beaches, surfer waves and summer swimwear. Gidget is the perfect avatar for the summer season. Her gee-golly gosh goodness will get you ready to do the Twist!   To perfect your summerContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 14”

So I’m jumping back in with my 5 Favorite Fictional Fathers. Thanks to The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick forContinue reading “5 Fandom Friday”
