I’m a huge Outlander fan and just watched the latest installment. Brianna is so cute. She’s a great choice for Jaime and Claire’s daughter. The actor I mean. Anyhow, this contains spoilers so don’t read further if you haven’t seen the episode yet. Basically, Brianna is raped by the psychopathic dude who stole Claire’s ring.

I once had a professor who came to Canada from a communist occupied European country. How he got out of there, God only knows. He was a tight-lipped, taciturn fellow and generally hard to talk to. One day I tried to talk to him about where he came from. He admitted the standard of living […]Read More Is North America Really Devoid Of Culture?
It’s 1999 and I’m having the same problem I had with 1998. I don’t connect with most of the pop charts this year. But I respect Cher for coming back with “I believe.” She was big in the 70s TV show Sonny and Cher. To resurface with the foresight of where pop would be going… […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 1999
Caught season 1 episode 3 of the new Star Trek TV series last night. I felt this one would indicate if the show was heading somewhere or just going to fizzle, as did Star Trek Enterprise. Pleasantly surprised again. The best part, I thought, was how the quirky Captain of Discovery tells Michael Burnham that […]Read More Another great Trek episode… (slight spoiler alert)
Managed to catch the first two episodes without ads, thanks to our PVR. It took a little juggling because the show started late. Luckily I taped every instance on every channel.. So how was it? Good. I was pleasantly surprised. I like female lead characters and Michael Burnham is stellar. “Michael” is a woman, btw. […]Read More Star Trek Discovery seems on track
http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/actress-sophie-turner-attends-the-premiere-of-hbos-game-of-news-photo/520347332 With much delight I discovered Season 7 Episode 1 of Game of Thrones was available for free preview on HBO Canada. Otherwise, I’d have to wait for the DVD release and grab a library copy. Searching for something good to watch over the past few weeks, I stumbled on another TV show called Vikings.

I guess I’m a little behind. I just finished watching Season 6 of Game of Thrones. Spolier alert! Don’t read any further if you haven’t seen the final episode. So after finishing up the series, I wondered: Should I feel guilty for enjoying it when Cersei blew the High Sparrow sky high? I don’t know. […]Read More Should I Feel Guilty? – Game of Thrones Finale
Who me? Game of Thrones freak? Naah. That’s only part of the story. I did like Khaleesi and thought that Jason Momoa nailed the ancient conqueror role. But they are only depicting things that, more or less, really happened. Alexander the Great. Cyrus the Great. Cleopatra. Dragons may be fiction but we have a pretty […]Read More She’s Got Dragons
I was struck by how good this series was. Especially the first season. Although I enjoyed both. Rumor has it that a third season might somehow appear. But I can’t really see it doing very well. Seems a lot of good US stuff begins with solid character development and interaction, and then degrades into a […]Read More Agent Carter
