The Living and the Dead – BBC Series

April 9th, 2017

A and I have been watching an amazing horror-ish series from the BBC called The Living and the Dead. I have finished it, and she is about to finish it. Back on a cold winter’s day at the end of last year. I binged watched this show. I loved it and was very sad to hear it was cancelled and not coming back for season 2. That said, season 1 is like this perfect story arc for me and I just watched the entire series again so that A and I would be watching at the same time.

When watching this, at some point I had to log in to Facebook and tell all of my friends, “Oh My GOD! I just screamed at my television!”

The series starts out slowly and is a very beautiful period piece. Costumes, set, etc. are perfect in their details. It feels like a simple ghost story… kind of spooky and atmospheric. But as the episodes roll by, you start to see glimpses of things that let you know you ain’t in Kansas anymore – or instead of Kansas on a quaint Victorian era farm. I don’t want to give anything away BUT go, stream this or buy this and watch it as soon as you can. Keep going through the first three episodes – it will pick up momentum. If you like dark, period-era ghost stories, you will love this. The second time I watched it, rather than screaming, tears streamed down my face. I love this show

The Big Bang Theory

March 17th, 2009

S: Okay, next time I’m having trouble concentrating, I’ll sing a sea shanty. We need to dish on this show! This week Penny gets help from the guys starting her “Penny Blossoms” hair accessories business. ask a patient . We also get to see what Sheldon is like on coffee. LOL. Love the Flash costume.

A: Plenty to dish about on this show! As great as it was to see Sheldon hyped up on coffee and running around in a Flash costume, nothing will beat the Halloween episode when all four of the geeks came running out dressed as Flash, thinking each of them had an original idea and then slinking away all sullen when they saw that the other three guys had the same idea. This resulting in Sheldon changing his costume to the Doppler Effect was the icing on the cake. But yes, 4 supra-intelligent dudes employing all their scientific knowledge to help Penny maximize her production and sales of Penny blossoms was a hilarious premise. My favorite scene: Sheldon delegates out all the responsibilities to get the business launched but delegates nothing to Penny. They tell her she can do whatever she’d like, and after they all walk out the door, she just shrugs and says, “I’m gonna go take a nap.” 🙂

S: I Love it in the Halloween special when they all run out looking alike in their Flash costumes, and Sheldon says, “I knew we should have had a costume planning meeting.” LOL. Also when Leonard goes as Frodo and confronts Penny’s A-hole of an ex and afterward Leonard says, “That’s the way we run in the shire.” Love this show.
