I wish I could readily access the part of my brain where long-forgotten memories hang out.
Back in the old days, you know, like when I was growing up, television sitcoms would have an episode every season that was made up of clips from previous episodes loosely strung together by some new dialog. The Golden Girls was notorious for this, doing it much more often than any other show I remember.… Continue reading Clips Episode
I’ve never considered myself to be a feminist. I’ve written about it before, calling it the “f word”. With so much going on in my life and with this election – thank goodness the vote is tomorrow – I’ve been thinking a lot about the topic lately. But first, a segue. For over a year… Continue reading What the F?
A line in Career of Evil, a Robert Galbraith (JK Rowlings) novel, got me thinking. It was mentioned that the questions she asked were way too personal to be coming from a complete stranger. Upon reading that I immediately thought, “How British.” The level of personal space, in terms of what is acceptable from people… Continue reading British Sensibilities
Have you ever watched a new-to-you television show and instantly felt like you're home? My recent encounter with this phenomenon was the result of Amazon Prime. My admiration for Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezoz, started with an interview of his on the Oprah show, which I've discussed before. Well, Amazon Prime has started doing something I have… Continue reading Perfect Fit
If someone came back into your life after being away for a couple of years, would they be able to pick right back up in your storyline, or would they need a recap montage? I was watching iZombie when I came up with this idea. Each episode begins with an explanation of the plot. It… Continue reading Episodic Life

I watched it everyday when I got home from school. The theme was calming to me; the characters felt like friends. Ever since I saw… Continue reading Frozen Memories
Thanks to the magic of Hulu, I've discovered some great new-to-me shows. My favorite one to date was Jeremiah. It is cool to see Dylan from 90210, Theo from the Cosby Show and Mikey from The Goonies in very different roles. Recently we watched an episode in which the three main characters are presented with… Continue reading Granting Wishes
Somehow I managed to never see an episode of Dr. Who until two years ago. I’d never even heard of The Doctor until I lived in England, and I’m not sure how I missed watching the show then with the Dr. Who Omnibus showing up all the time on the telly listings. My first doctor… Continue reading Truth versus Trust
I haven't stepped into the confessional on this blog in a while, so I figured it was about time. It's good for the soul, right? Although I refuse to pay for cable, I still watch television. That is not the secret since I've mentioned it before (including buying an antennae to watch football). What has… Continue reading The Confessional – Guilty Pleasures Edition
