The Leftovers Series Finale: “The Book of Nora”

Jun 6, 2017

I confess that Nora was my least favorite character throughout the entire Leftovers series. I don’t know why; I felt she was too stiff, too rigid and devoid of any emotion. Then again, I...

Divorce: “Christmas”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Robert (Thomas Haden Church) get their own lawyers, though Robert’s first attempt at representation doesn’t go well. Frances has finally gotten a gallery space but has no artists to fill it.

My Week in Westeros

My Week in Westeros

My husband hit a milestone birthday this year and my gift to him was a week travelling around Northern Ireland, discovering historical hot spots and Game of Thrones filming locations. After a week exploring Winterfell, The Iron Islands and a quick stop at The Haunted Forest I have returned to regale you with my story.   Winterfell – aka Castle Ward Castle Ward was owned by the Ward family and the famous tower that you can see below was replicated several times using CGI to create the impressive Stark homestead. This tower was in the farm courtyard of a much bigger and grander stately home. The tower was the home of the Ward...

Wednesday, Nov. 9th was the Last ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY WITH BILL SIMMONS

There has been a lot of buzz going about that Bill Simmons’ HBO gig wasn’t doing so hot. And now ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY is over.

Westworld: “The Adversary”

Westworld: “The Adversary”

Westworld seems to have become one of the shows that have a fan base completely divided. A large portion of people is completely in love with the show, claiming it’s the next Game of Thrones, while others think it’s the same story told a different way. As the season continues, that line blurs a bit and we see people switch sides. Honestly, I still haven’t figured out exactly where I stand with it. Maeve (Thandie Newton)  has been my favorite since Episode One and that hasn’t changed. This episode only further solidified that. She seems to have a higher level of awareness than most of the other characters. This episode, she...

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM Season 9 Announces Core Cast

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM is shaping up and everyone you’d expect to be onboard is. Joining Larry David in the show after a six-year hiatus are Cheryl Hines (as Cheryl David), Susie Essman (as Greene) and Jeff Garlin (as Jeff Greene). Also appearing are Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen. The concept of the ninth season must be all sketched out, don’t forget it is mostly improved, and a shooting schedule must have been plotted for the cast to become aligned at this point for another go. Exactly what happens is anyone’s guess, but we remember that Larry & Cheryl are still divorced, right?     To complete this season the stars did...
