Hi Carissa and fellow posters,
One of my Christmas presents was a digital copy of a movie Grace (Stephanie Szostak) made with Jon Cryer. My wife thought I would enjoy seeing the actresses' latest movie. The movie is titled "hit by lightning".. It is available on amazon. It was weird watching the movie, because all of the Grace emotions and idiosyncrasies were displayed. I guess those are characteristic of the actress. The movie is cute and dumb, and will make you chuckle. It is OK for all ages.

After Christmas dinner my girls were busy discussing things for which I can make no important contribution, so my son-in-law and I ended up watching an old movie on TV, "The facts of Life" with Lucille Ball, and Bob Hope. Golfingdocp, the movie was made in 1960, only a few years before you became a gleam in your father's eye. Hope and Ball were married to other people. They were all supposed to go on a vacation to Acapulco, but their partners had emergencies and couldn't make it. Hope and Ball get to know each other, have a great time, and fall in love. In 1960 they never get past a good kiss, but they want to. When they return home they keep trying to have a physical affair, but nothing ever works out. When these two comedians try to do anything, laughter is always breaking out. Finally, they decide to divorce their spouses and head for their first love rendezvous in a cabin. Along the way, the facts of life become evident, raining in the convertible when Hope can't put the top up, they fight, etc. They finally realize that they like each other a lot, but don't really want to live the rest of their lives together. Bushi101, they return to their spouses, and all is well. :-)
I just wanted to point out to you that the world was pretty much the same as it is now, long before you decided to join us. Welcome aboard!

The Best Buddies on Television in 2014

I love Bamon friendship on TVD so much.


What an episode! Up, down, backwards, forwards..... I still don't know if I'm awake yet! - LOVED the Doctor driving the sleigh! If I'd've been there I'd've felt the same way! - And I agree totally - "Coming so shortly after Clara hugged The Doctor on Santa's sleigh and compared the two, here's hoping that is the very last time a reference to anything other than a friendly relationship is ever hinted at again". Let us PLEASE end the hints of inter-species romance between the millennia-old Time Lord and his seriously-young-by-comparison alien pets!
So - when do I get to see the Magician's Apprentice? I already know it will not be soon enough.

@ Ostara

Awake, or still asleep ;)

@ Alihan

I may never again be able to tell one way or another!

Doctor Who Season 8 Episode 13 Review: Last Christmas

Brilliant episode. Scary, mysterious, unnerving, humorous. All the things that make Doctor Who great and make it the one TV show that can do anything. Want to mix Inception with Miracle on 34th Street, the Thing, and Alien? Leave it to Doctor Who to do it and do it well. Did Santa hit reset? We already know that the Doctor knows Santa and calls him "Jeff" (a fine name, if I may say so myself). The dream Santa implies that he at least has some knowledge of Time Lord tech since his sleigh is "bigger on the inside".
So, we got to meet some good character, see Nick Frost play a wonderful St. Nick, see Clara and the Doctor reconcile, see Danny (and I do think in all those dream layers that she somehow got to see the REAL Danny Pink and say goodbye) tell Clara to move on, see the Doctor be honest and even jovial while still very much remaining the Doctor, and we finally got to see a reset on Clara and the Doctor. They both know themselves. They both were tormented by different things in Series 8.
Series 9 cannot come soon enough. The best Christmas Special since A Christmas Carol (I have long considered that one to be the best of the bunch), possibly even surpassing it. Unlike other Christmas specials (excepting End of Time, kinda), this one tied in to the series storyline. Thank you to the BBC, Steven Moffatt, Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Nick Frost, and everyone else involved with this episode for giving us such a wonderful Christmas gift to unwrap.

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 1 Episode 4 Review: Rule #426

I love this show - I'm addicted. There aren't many sites recapping so please keep it up. I love how this show manages to balance humor/poking fun at human folly with the raw emotion of being in a relationship, going through divorce, etc. I personally think its brilliant. I hope its gets the viewership to keep it on for another few seasons.

Sleepy Hollow Midseason Report Card: Grade It!

Oh Sleepy Hollow, you break my heart.
-Best Episode, the premiere. It has Crane actually working towards getting Abbie out. Crane working with Jenny, a great combo, great abbie and Crane moments, and John Cho. Also Mama was good. In which Lori Mills was more helpful in ten minutes of screen time than Katrina has ever been.
- Just one worst? Definitely agree about the Demon Baby trope. Terrible.
-Best Character. Abbie Mills managed to grow as a character even though she was terribly sidelined.
-worst character. Without a doubt Katrina "Endless Whispers" Crane. There should be no questioning that. She was the weakest link in the first season and it just got progressively worse this season. There is no redeeming such a poorly written character. She's ineffective, useless, and a liability more than an asset.
Most Underused. Frank Irving was grossly underused. As was Jenny.
Best Ichabidism, probably playing Halo.
Overall grade, a C.


I liked that the sleigh flew past Big Ben at the stroke of Midnight. They got it right unlike the Norad Track Santa site where they had Santa hitting London at Midnight GMT yet the posted Santacam footage had him fly past Big Ben which read 1:35. There was a tongue in cheek gag in the Santacam voice over saying that Santa checked his watch as he passed Big Ben to make sure he was on time/schedule. I also liked the old Clara gag due to the speculation that this was going to be when she left the show. Happily that turned out to be another dream (or Santa hit the reset button - Pick One) so when she woke her she was young.


Really running the show into the ground with Katrina, aren't they?

Extant Season 2: Who's Out? Who's Still In?

Wow, will become like a new series after all these folks leave. Does mean Ethan will stay on the series? Don't understand without his father being there who created Ethan staying around, who will fix Ethan if he should need fixing?
