Nurse Lee opens the episode by telling us that she believes night time is for women, to which I say, NOOOO! She’s bicycling through a dark, deserted alley in the East End looking… Continue reading

“Venus and Saturn are now in alignment.” – Call The Midwife 1×01

by

I loved Downton Abbey and I loooved recapping it, so when it ended I felt more than a little distressed. Where was I going to get my British comfort binge-watching fix now? Thankfully,… Continue reading

We are still talking about the Oscars.

The three of us (Sandy, Sam and Chloe) had an Oscar viewing party last week and we decided to live blog about the noteworthy moments. It started out so well but being who we… Continue reading

Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life

by

This piece took me a ridiculously long time to put together because of all the ambivalence the revival stirred. From excitement, to disappointment, on to hope and then disgust. I was wildly excited when… Continue reading

Doctor Who Christmas Special: The Return of Doctor Mysterio

by

It’s been so long since I last saw The Doctor that I felt compelled to write about the Christmas Special. The last two seasons were a pain to get through because I am decidedly not… Continue reading

“Why can’t men ever paint themselves out of a corner?” – Downton Abbey Christmas Special 6×09

by

This is it. The very last Downton episode, and the very last post I will write about it. *tear* Carson is having some trouble with tremors in his hand, and it begins to… Continue reading

“A nasty, jealous, scheming b*tch!” – Downton Abbey 6×08

by

I put off writing about the final regular episode of Downton Abbey because I did not like it. At all. I hated it. It all boils down to the two sisters. Edith finally… Continue reading

“I’m quite a tough nutcracker.” – Downton Abbey 6×07

by

The penultimate episode of Downton Abbey didn’t leave much of an impression on me when I first watched it. In fact I forgot most of it right after. Watching it back, I realized… Continue reading

“If I could choose between principle and logic, I’d take principle every time!” – Downton Abbey 6×06

by

Downton Abbey opens its doors to the public for charity. The Downton ladies act as guides to the visitors, and they don’t know anything about the history of their own home. The hospital merger… Continue reading

“Are they allowed to have that much blood?” – Downton Abbey 6×05

by

Okay, let’s talk about THAT scene. Did anything else even happen this episode? Because that is all I can remember. Mary and Henry blah blah blah, Yay Edith, Daisy whatever. But that scene!… Continue reading

“Are you here to help or irritate?” – Downton Abbey 6×04

by

And it’s classic Violet again, giving us the title of this week’s blog post. I’ve been watching Downton Abbey since the beginning, and I only just noticed how elegant its opening titles are.… Continue reading

“Did you drink at luncheon?” – Downton Abbey 6×03

by

Episode 3 turned out be a squeee-filled episode, though it started out inauspiciously. Mrs. Hughes resigning herself to the fact that she won’t be getting the reception she really wanted, and then the… Continue reading

“I don’t need to be stirred or squashed.” – Downton Abbey 6×02

by

This episode left me with more questions than answers. First of all, Anna, don’t you think it’s about time to stop moping about life and just lighten up a bit? It’s like you… Continue reading

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

by

I had very strong feelings about David Letterman leaving. I also felt nervous about Colbert taking over – how would his “Colbert Report” character translate to the late night format? Would he be… Continue reading

“Does it ever get cold on the moral high ground?” – Downton Abbey 6×01

by

I am still in denial about this being Downton’s last season. Whyyy? Hearing that opening theme after a long time felt like a homecoming. Unlike last year, this season’s premiere felt very satisfactory.… Continue reading

“Thank you and good night.”

It’s been a week since David Letterman left The Late Show, and I still feel blue about it. You know that feeling you get when you’re counting down the last few days of… Continue reading

Thoughts on the Oscars

by

NPH Opening: Veerrry nice. Entertaining. I love the effects of blending NPH into famous scenes, and the shadows and silhouettes, especially that shoutout to Singin’ in the Rain. Jack Black made the number… Continue reading

2015 Aussie Open Roundup

The Monday after a Grand Slam always brings me a huge letdown. It’s like for two weeks my schedule becomes pretty set around the match schedules, and then after two weeks of non-stop… Continue reading
