I am not known for being a big fan of any particular TV show. It's rare when I get "hooked" on a specific series. However, all that said, I am blogging about a children's show on PBS. This show is called Super Why, and it is an animated series that help young children learn the alphabet, spelling, rhyming, and other prereading skills.
"Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious."
That’s just one of the bazillion lines from 80s movies I have locked in the recesses of my brain, along with songs, TV shows, and even commercials. "Where’s the beef?" Oh, how I miss that old girl!
The recent demise of beloved actor James Gandolfini inspired me to get out my Sopranos complete series box set and begin watching the series all over again. I loved this show. It was truly the best drama/soap opera ever. In an age of DVRs and “waiting until it comes out of video,” The Sopranos still saw people arranging their Sunday evenings around the television schedule.
Every few years, I get a new Doctor. This is always a difficult transition for me. I like my current Doctor. I am attached to my Doctor. Why do I have to get a new one? Wait, I bet you’re thinking this has something to do with an HMO or PPO. No, this has to do with the BBC and the long-running, sci-fi series, Doctor Who. The time has come for the 11th Doctor to regenerate and pass the controls of the TARDIS to the incoming 12th Doctor. For Whovians like me, the selection of a new actor to play this iconic role is a matter of EXTREME IMPORTANCE.
So …did anyone happen to catch the premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D? It enjoyed a lot of promotional time in the media recently, and those efforts appear to have paid off. The show follows, well, the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, a top-secret government agency that deals with superheroes such as Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America.
The ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother, the longest story of how two people met in history, began on September 23. For those who are not familiar with the show, it is the story of Ted Mosby and his quest to find the love of his life. The concept sounds simple until you watch the first episode and realize that Ted's "love at first sight," Robin Scherbatsky, is not the mother. Instead, meeting her is the moment that will change his life.
Do You Like Spending Lots of Money for a TV Series That You Will Only Watch a Few Times???
Recently, my friends and I were talking about how there aren’t many family friendly shows on TV anymore. We were laughing and talking about our favorite shows that we watched back in the 80s and early 90s.
People everywhere were watching it and talking about how great of a show it was. I resisted for as long as I could, but finally, curiosity overwhelmed me, and I decided I just had to find out why everyone loves Duck Dynasty. My husband resisted for quite a bit longer than I managed, but in the end, he gave in and now he’s hooked, as well.
But, how to catch up on what has been happening with the Robertson family?
