the Time Travelers Wife Tuesday, May 17 2022 

This is one of the best new offerings this season, if not the best. 2 very engaging characters interact in space and time – nude and clothed – with some very jaunty dialogue. It’s a breath of fresh air. There’s so much murder and mayhem on the tube this is a great respite. And I must say the nudity is handled very tastefully showing just so much of Mr. Theo James’s physique as modesty would allow. I hope that the powers that be can keep the humor and good times rolling. Can’t wait for the next instalment!

Murder and More Murder Saturday, May 14 2022 

The Staircase and Candy are 2 series of a kind . There isn’t a lot of mystery in either – it’s more of an explanation of how did it happen? And there are surprises on the way. These are well acted productions – Toni Collette shines as the wife/victim. And Jessica Biel is believable in an unbelievable murder.

Under the Banner of Heaven Saturday, May 7 2022 

Andrew Garfield is excellent as an LDS cop. His sidekick is a native American non-believer who tends to add some outsider thoughts to what is going on in this Utah community. A young Mormon girl from Idaho becomes engaged to a fellow who is in a rather strict Latter Day Saints family in Utah. She comes off as more level – headed than the rest of the family she is marrying into. She seeks to work for a local television station. There are a number of males in this family attracted to this newcomer. Well there is a double murder and our cop duo try to solve this.

It seems like everything is a cop drama these days, but I must say this one kept me riveted.

First Ladies Monday, May 2 2022 

Boy there are a lot of excellent new offerings on cable and broadcast TV. The players look similar to their real-life counterparts but they, more importantly, have captured the essence of the famous people they portray. Kiefer Sutherland would not be my first choice for FDR, but he did pull it off. Also Mrs. Roosevelt was most convincing portrayed by Gillian Anderson. This is a far cry from Sex Education. And Michelle Pfeiffer as Betty Ford is worth special mention.

An exceptional portrayal of the Watergate scandal. Julia Roberts as Martha Mitchell is spot on. Sean Penn is unrecognizable as John Mitchell. We gasped when we saw his name in the credits. This is quality work.

Julia Saturday, Apr 9 2022 

I guess one might feel that the previous film Julie and Julia was the ultimate portrayal of Julia Child and hubby – but this new one sheds a different light -it appears Julia was not at all sure of her TV personality- but kept working to make it what we remember today. It was the growing pains of Public television and that complicated things. I think what Public television has become today is wonderful -but nobody has outshined Julia in the cooking milieu. Her spontaneity and humor – which is most prevalent in this portrayal- makes this series special. David Hyde Pierce deserves special mention as well as Sarah Lancashire and Bebe Neuwirth.

Hippie Dippie Business is what I would call it. But they managed for a while to get a ton of money to back up their idea. There is not a lot of footage of people working with their nose to the grindstone. Instead it looks like a never ending masquerade party – masks and all. I appreciate the acting work of all involved. An interesting look at our recent past.

Anne with an e Thursday, Mar 31 2022 

The young lady who plays Anne is most certainly an accomplished actress. This is an example of some of the great work coming out of Canada. I don’t remember clearly seeing the American-ized version of Anne of Green Gables- but I think it was less edgy and more romanticized than this version. The character work is very engaging in this. This is something I think teenagers would enjoy as well as adults.

Sister Bonaface Mysteries Wednesday, Mar 23 2022 

As a graduate of a Catholic girls high school – I was intrigued with this series. It’s a hoot! Some great characterization- check out the Mother Superior -and Sister Bonaface herself racing around town on a moped. Sister Bonaface is soft spoken but very professional as a Crime Scene Investigator. She doesn’t miss much. She is always tactful. And she’s often right.

new pricing continues-send me an email Sunday, Mar 13 2022 and I will send a corrected PayPal invoice. This is group B. Top to bottom of section is 1- 4.
