    The Village

    It's like a very earnest Melrose Place. Maybe it's just because of the mood I was in, but it did make me want to spend more time with my family. I am now going to plan a trip to see an uncle I haven't seen for awhile.
  2. It is interesting how the various big stars of The WB have fared. Michelle Williams is the big movie star, but actors like Keri Russell and Jessica Biel are doing extremely well for themselves. I feel someone like SMG could have a busier career if she really wanted.

    S01.E14: Let's Just Finish the Dance

    I am perfectly fine with the show not featuring a Bad Boy or Bad Girl type of character. It is one of the reasons I am enjoying the show. I think the kids en masse have a fun vibe. I hate the Originals, so don't care about them. But Matt or Jeremy or Bonnie must have a kid. Can't they enroll here?

    S01.E14: Let's Just Finish the Dance

    Penelope told one secret to Landon and all the secrets to Josie. Ultimately up to Josie whether the entire school will find out everything. I am assuming the actress playing Penelope has a role in a new CW show next season. If that show flops, I hope she returns. I understood her motivations. Did they really need to introduce another love interest for Hope?

    Will & Grace

    I was so upset by this episode. I don't understand how the show can ever expect me to "enjoy" Grace's father for his bigotry and Will's mother for still wanting to be married to that man. I will never watch an episode featuring these two again.

    Boy Erased (2018)

    I really appreciated the movie. It is so sad. The family stuff were very well done, the centre stuff was a little erratic. Excellent acting throughout. I can't remember the last time Crowe was so sympathetic, even though his character is so problematic.
  7. Another interesting thing to examine are those movie star duos, where two actors are so often associated with each other. Sometimes, it is because they starred in many movies together, or that one movie was just so popular. Old Hollywood, you have Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, Rock Hudson and Doris Day. 70s, you have Diane Keaton and Woody Allen, Warren Beatty and Faye Runaway. 80s, you have Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy. 90s. You have Leo and Kate, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins, Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves. 00s, you have Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger....uhm, I cannot think of anyone. I can only come up with bros, like Will Farrelll, Owen Wilson, George Clooney, Brad Pitt. This decade? Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Maybe Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Bradley's relationship with Gaga too. Of course, this is all subjective and I skipped the comedic duos.

    S01.E13: The Boy Who Still Has a Lot of Good to Do

    The show does a good job of giving each character their moment at some point during a season. While certain characters are certainly the main ones, it doesn't mean the supporting characters are doing nothing. I appreciate the struggles that the vampires are experiencing. This was an excellent episode.

    Whiskey Cavalier

    I watched this show for Scott Foley. Loved him on Felicity. Then when I saw Ana Cortiz, I was all Bonus! I saw maybe 3 episodes of The Walking Dead so not familiar with the actress. I don't love it or anything, but it will stay on my DVR. I like the interplay with the five of them. Josh Hopkins' character does not work for me.

    Wake Up, San Francisco! Full(er) House Media

    I thought this show was a big hit for Netflix. I am surprised.

    S01.E03: Tearin' up My Heart

    I am really enjoying the show. I like the various mysteries taking place. They have done a pretty good job of juggling it all. I think Max has a goofy side, which balances out his angst for me. I also think for a CW show, they do a good job of portraying racism. The sheriff's antipathy of undocumented people is a very interesting take.

    Rent Live! (Fox)

    The show has always been hit and miss for me, where some songs and pieces I love and others I can't bother. The show tonight kept the things I liked intact, while never really elevating I didn't much care for in the past. The sequence with the 3 main couples in their beds were so beautifully staged and filmed. It is a shame we will never get a true live version of this. The main group were all good, but the actor playing Mark was really excellent. He made that role is own.

    S03.E11: Songbird Road, Part One

    Jack relapsed around the time Rebecca got that music gig, and the kids were teens (16?). We haven't really seen Jack in AA, so I do believe there will likely be an episode where he is wanting to meet up with Nick to make amends...but doesn't.

    S03.E11: Songbird Road, Part One

    The death of the child was more than just an accident. Nicky took the boy on the boat and played around with grenades. I could totally understand Jack wanting nothing to do with Nicky (although I suspect we will get more flashbacks with them when Jack came back to the US). Nonetheless, I am glad Kevin and the others went back to see him. I was tense throughout. Wonderful episode.

    S01.E01: Pilot

    I watched 1/2 an episode of the original series, but still checked this one out. I watched the whole episode. I liked that everyone are adults. Not high schoolers. I do see the chemistry in the main couple. I have to say, that last song has me rewatching the final scene over and over again.
