Happy 50th Birthday Doctor Who!

This is the year many of us longtime Doctor Who fans thought we wouldn’t see, the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who! Sure we would have had an anniversary, but the fact that after the show went off the air and all hope was lost, it has come back stronger then ever is so cool!!  Doctor…

Call the Midwife!

Last year, I had head about a series that was going to be aired on BBC, “Call the Midwife”. It looked interesting but I didn’t get around to seeing it. A couple of weeks ago, I happened upon a reference to it and thought, wow I forgot I wanted to see that. Luckily, the library…

He’s Back!!!

Sunday is Oscar night when Hollywood puts on their tuxes and gowns to celebrate the year’s best in film. I am very excited about watching it this year! Billy Crystal is back!!! Yay! After Eddie Murphy backed out (thank you!), it was announced he would be hosting.  Starting in 1990, Billy has hosted on and…

Sunday Night with Zombies!

Sunday nights… family dinners…. laughter… heartwarming stories, but recently something new has taken over Sunday nights for many families across America, I know it has in mine.  Its not just Sunday night with the family, but its Sunday nights  with “The Walking Dead”!  The show, which is based on the graphic novel created by Robert…

RIP Brigadier

“Chap with wings, five rounds rapid”… with great sadness, I read today that Nicholas Courtney who portrayed the Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart passed away at the age of 81. If you are a Doctor Who fan, then you know just how important the “Brig” is to Doctor Who. Friend, sometimes foe, morally strong, leader of UNIT, he…

God Bless The Vicar, Of Dibley That Is!

My love of all Britcoms continues in my latest TV watching vice… The Vicar of Dibley. The show stars the fantastically talented Dawn French. Dawn is the French half of the very funny French and Saunders comedy duo, who brought us Absolutely Fabulous. The show was created by Richard Curtis of Four Weddings and a Funeral…

They’re Too Much!

Does the name “Heat Miser” mean anything to you? Do images of little  men dancing with straw hats fill your head? Then you are one of the many devoted fans of the Rankin/ Bass stop-motion Christmas specials that ran (and still run) ad nauseam during the month of December starting back in the mid 60’s.  Everyone…

Looking Marvelous!

Any fan of TLC’s “What Not To Wear” knows who Clinton Kelly is. Those of you who don’t What Not To Wear is a reality program where Clinton and his co-host, Stacy London, who have both worked in the fashion world, do makeovers for the woefully in need. The new season debuted on Oct. 26th with former Facts…

Being Human Isn’t Easy

What do a slightly dorky werewolf, a dark, handsome vampire and a cheery ghost have in common? They are all roommates, each trying to overcome their curses and trying to be human in the show “Being Human”. You might think this is a comedy, but it’s not. Originally broadcast in England, the show is now airing…

Reconsidering Nellie

As a child, I grew up enchanted with Little House on the Prairie. My best friend and I would fight over who would be  sweet Mary or if the mood struck, tomboy Laura….  never, EVER did either of us want to be Nellie Olson. Nellie was the meanest, most spoiled, most  selfish girl in all…
