Somewhere Between (ABC)

Laura Price is a superstar news producer in San Francisco and fiercely loving mom. She isn’t crazy: Laura knows her 8-year-old daughter is going to be murdered. She doesn’t know who the murderer is, or why she’s

Re: 24: Legacy Marathon This Wknd!

Excellent, all three seasons. One of the best adaptations of a literary detective series I've ever seen.

Re: RIP John Heard

My favorite role of his was Cutter in "Cutter and Bone". Good flick, great performance.

13 Reasons Why

I'm at ep 7, so about halfway through. It's entertaining and the show's heart is certainly in the right place, but it's all a bit much. Hannah's like a teenage Job, who gets every high school evil visited upon her. I also think [more]

Re: Watch the First Trailer for A Wrinkle in Time

follows Meg Murry, played by Storm Reid

Ha. That sounds backwards, a character with an actor's name and an actor with a character's name.

Re: Made me cry

Just watched "Gifted". Definitely one to pull at the ole heart strings.

Re: CBS - "Salvation" Premier Tonight

Well, 20 mins in, surprise, the writing is more than cheesy and the acting is less than mediocre. But at least everyone is good-looking.

CBS - "Salvation" Premier Tonight

I haven't tried watching a network drama series in a while, going to give this one a shot. Will it be the usual cheesy writing and mediocre acting? Another "Zoo" or "Under the Dome"? We shall see.

So Smarmy and Arrogant

Watching past clips of Donny Jr. pooh-poohing the Russian election interference claims, saying how "desperate" and "disgusting" the Democrats are and how they'll "say anything to be able to win", then last night [more]

An Open Letter

To Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable): You know that special offer that you sent me, the one with the "fantastic savings", complete with a special card and code that must be used before it expires? Well, you may be surprised to learn [more]

Re: Meditation

I agree, and I'm a straight up atheist. When my mother taught me to pray all those years ago she told me to list all the things I was thankful for. That is still a very good mental health exercise today.

I'm not religious [more]

Meditation

Anybody here meditate? I got interested in it several months ago because I've been experiencing anxiety over the last few years. I'm not sure of the cause, maybe getting older is part of it (I'm pushing 60), maybe my job is also involved. [more]

Battle of the Network Stars

I made it 20 mins. Watching a bunch of overweight, too-old has-beens pretending to have fun (and trying to be funny) was just, er, pitiful. And boring.

And Tom Arnold. Cripes. He was so hungover he was still drunk. Talk about pitiful.

Re: Oldies but goodies

I re-watched As Good As It Gets recently and was struck by how unusual it was. Definitely not your standard rom-com.

Oh yeah, and the whole joke with "This is a true story blah blah blah" was cute the first two seasons but it's gotten old.

Fargo - Season 3

Marathoned it over the wknd. Struggled to get through it. Found this by far the weakest season, with some really sloppy writing. The way the two cops put together the brothers with the old guy's murder so soon was absurd. The whole LA episode was [more]

Prime Suspect 1973

Prequel to the Helen Mirren series. I think it will be called "Prime Suspect: Tennison" when it airs here in the U.S. on Masterpiece Theater starting 6/25.

I'm currently halfway through the season. Doesn't have quite the [more]
