**SPOILERS** On December 18, the final episode of Berlin Station Season 2 aired in Canada. A third season has now been announced, although it is not clear who will be returning. The first five episodes of Season 2 were fairly uneven, as I described in an earlier post. But as in Season 1, the pacing … Continue reading Right. So, That BS Season Is Done.
**SPOILERS** So, here I am, with five episodes behind me and five (or maybe only four?) ahead. In Canada, Episode 6 airs on Monday. (Sorry... couldn't resist the cheesy title... "right" in line with those of the show.) Averaging out my scoring of the episodes, also brings me to a middling rating. Would I continue … Continue reading Berlin Station 2: Right in the Middle
For me, long before Richard Armitage, there was David Cassidy, who died yesterday at age 67. When I was a preteen/young teen, there was nothing so beautiful to me as the face and voice of David Cassidy. He had those pretty-boy looks and slim body that are so appealing to a young girl. And to … Continue reading My First Celebrity Crush Has Died
A new-to-me Richard Armitage character has just joined the ranks of my all-time favourites. And this character is not seen, but only heard! In the words of his boast asserting his warrior status, he is: Uhtred of Bebbanburg... The man who killed Ubba Lothbrokson by the sea... The man who spilled Svein of the White … Continue reading Rich’s of the Past: The Lords of the North Audiobook
Finally, I was able to watch the Season 2 premiere of Berlin Station which aired in Canada on Monday. It is so frustrating to once again be two shows behind the US, in large part because I'd love to take part in the on-line discussion when it's happening! Even avoiding the posts marked with "spoilers", … Continue reading Two Shows Behind… Berlin Station
It seems to be getting harder and harder to find something that both my husband and I want to watch. His taste is more towards superheroes, and mine veers more towards... well... Richard Armitage! But sometimes we have a meeting of the minds. (Movie stills from IMDb) Handsome Devil (2016): (On Video on Demand) I'd … Continue reading What I’ve Been Watching
So, NOW what do I do on Saturday nights? I'm a bit sad that one of my favourite TV shows, Orphan Black, came to an end two weeks ago. On the other hand, I'm glad that they knew when to end it -- the story had been fully told and the characters' situations were satisfactorily resolved. I … Continue reading The End of Orphan Black
It's still August 22 in Vancouver, as the birthdays of both a family member and an actor continue. Happy Birthday to both! And many happy returns! Yesterday's total eclipse put me in mind of Season 3, Episode 1 of Robin Hood. This is the moment when Sir Guy sees the total eclipse of the sun... and then … Continue reading Sir Guy Sees the Total Eclipse
I know many of you are thinking about Richard Armitage's birthday coming up on August 22. In my household, however, we are celebrating two other birthday's this week! My husband's birthday was this weekend and, at his request, I cooked chili for dinner and we finished off with his favourite dessert, vanilla ice cream with … Continue reading August Birthdays
