*****THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS*****

I’ve been a Good Wife fan for about three years now. Thanks to The Hallmark Channel and a week long blizzard, I was able to catch up on the lost seasons and get reacquainted with the characters. About a month later, our male lead, Josh Charles’s character, Will Garner, was Continue reading

Once Upon a Time: Season Three- Starts this Sunday!

Untitled

Honestly, I wasn’t interested in watching this show for the first couple of seasons. With all of the remakes and reboots out there of superheroes and fairytale characters, I was weary of watching another. It wasn’t until I saw a promo for its new spinoff, Wonderland, that I thought maybe I should give Once Upon a Time a chance.

I have to say I am pretty impressed with how well they’ve stayed true to each character’s original story and yet, strayed far enough away for it to seem fresh. Season three looks to be no exception, with an unlikely team of characters en route to Neverland in an attempt to rescue a young boy.

So, after binge watching two seasons last week I am fully prepared for Once Upon A Time’s season three premiere this Sunday.

Where we left off… Continue reading

The List: Ashley’s Love/Hate for Sons of Anarchy

soa1
There are so many well written articles out there that have been heavily researched by literary theorists and scholars comparing Sons of Anarchy and Hamlet. Just so we are clear, this post is not one of them! In fact, it would be more accurate to compare the next few paragraphs to a diary entry by a passive-aggressive teenage girl. I am not FX’s target demographic, but I started watching SOA less than a year ago. It took one episode for me to get hooked. This show’s amazing writing team has the insane ability to send me into a mild panic attack every single episode! Kurt Sutter gives us the opportunity to be part of a negative fantasy.

On Tuesday, we get to join the brothers of SAMCRO at the table and see what fate has in store for the beloved outlaw motorcycle club. Each character has grown and changed throughout the seasons. Like most shows (and people for that matter), your feelings towards each one and how they react to situations are often mixed. Having said that, I give you my love/ hate list for Sons of Anarchy.

The List: Summer TV – More Than Just Re-runs

During the summer months I usually abandon my TV and head to the theatre instead. Throughout May and June I had a movie date every single weekend. After the fourth, my blockbuster interest started to dwindle (as did my entertainment budget). To bust my boredom, I turned to summer TV and was pleasantly surprised at what I found.

  1. On Sunday night, I was introduced to a circle of friends who know the ins and outs of the Beverly Hills elite. Devious Maids follows five women who clean up more than their employers’ houses.

    Camp

  1. If Camp Clements had been anything like the show Camp, I would have actually left my cabin. This show follows a newly divorced single mom, Mack, trying to run her family camp, Little Otter.  Lots of hilarious pranks and unexpected romances can be found on this NBC show.
