Yes, it’s been a crazy year. I’ve dropped shows, I’ve added shows, I’ve discovered shows, but I haven’t written about most of it.

And I am sooooooo behind on Fall shows, it’s ridiculous.




I enjoy my shows. Y’all know I do! But after having 347 shows in the Winter/Spring, it was soooooo nice to have just 3 shows a week this Summer. So nice! So nice that I just kinda…got too busy to watch TV. **gasp**

Between having too many shows (most of which air Tuesday-Thursday), ditching cable (YAAAAASSSSSS!) & having the majority of my shows on Hulu, I just kinda dropped the ball. Then I got busy at work, went on vacation, dog sat for a week, had company at my house, etc. I mean, WHEN was I suppose to watch TV??

So let’s see where we are, shall we?

I discovered the hilarious BoJack Horseman this time last year, thanks to a Twitter buddy’s recommendation, Daredevil (LOVE it), Happy Valley, Grace and Frankie, Girlfriends Guide to Divorce and The Awesomes.

I ditched Castle this Fall. Just…no. (ABC has been annoying the hell outta me for several seasons, Black-ish notwithstanding.) I stopped watching Orphan Black after 1.5 episodes this Spring because between that and Game of Thrones, I was OVER watching women being brutalized. Too much of that shit, too close together. I’m sure I’ll finish S3 of Orphan Black when it becomes available on Amazon in a few months. When I will also watch The Americans!

I had to say goodbye forever to Justified, Mad Men, Constantine, Forever and Hannibal this year.  **sniff**  Justified & Hannibal are included on my “Top 10 TV Shows of All Time” list!

I’ve kept up with Tattoo Nightmares, started S1 of How to Get Away With Murder, kinda-sorta kept up with Real Husbands of Hollywood, have Agent Carter & Archer to look forward to in the new year and Girlfriends Guide to Divorce starts back up next week!

Because of ALL OF THE ABOVE, I swore I would not start any new shows this Fall, even though Scream Queens and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend looked reallllly interesting! And Jessica Jones just started up! *whines*

Here’s the Fall 2015 line-up:

Brooklyn Nine-Nine – 2 eps behind

The Flash – 3 eps behind

iZombie – 4 eps behind

SHIELD – 5 eps behind

Empire – CAUGHT UP!

Black-ish – 4 eps behind

Arrow – 5 eps behind

Supernatural – 5 eps behind

Vampire Diaries – 4 eps behind

The Originals – 5 eps behind

Sleepy Hollow – 4 eps behind

Grimm – 4 eps behind

That’s a lot of damn shows, right? This summer all I had was Teen Wolf, Hannibal & Penny Dreadful. It was lovely. **deep sigh of remembrance**

My objective for the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend? Knock all that shit out. AND start Jessica Jones.

Yup. Feeling smug right now that I can do it. ALL.



I’ll holla back this time next week and we’ll see how I did.


And what are YOU watching?

Double Trouble for Anna Hibiscus by Atinuke

Double Trouble for Anna Hibiscus by Atinuke and Lauren Tobia

I’ve been a big fan of Anna Hibiscus since the first titles were released. Those books were chapter books and it’s great to see the transition to picture books about Anna continue. In this book, Anna wakes up one morning to discover that her mother has given birth to two baby brothers. Her cousins inform her that baby boys are trouble and Anna Hibiscus quickly sees that that is true. When she wants to snuggle with her mother, she is sleeping. Her grandmother too is sleeping after being up all night helping with the birth. Her uncle is too busy making food for her mother to get Anna her regular breakfast. Her aunts are busy rocking the babies. Finally, it is too much for Anna Hibiscus to take and she starts to yell and cry. After all that fuss though…

It was too big, and I threw up on him.
He said I’d do better the next time.

When I was seven years old, I watched a group of fellow second graders cheer as a boy in my class tried to kiss me. He hugged me from behind, giggling all the while.
I threw sand in his eyes, and was sent to the Principal.

When I was eight years old, I had an elderly teacher ask me to stay behind in class. He carried me on his shoulders, and called me pretty.
“Teacher’s Pet!” my friends declared, the envy visible on their faces.
They ignored me at lunch that day.

When I was nine years old, an older girl on the school bus would ask me to lift…

SEIZE THE NIGHT is a terrific collection of short stories featuring more than a few powerhouses in the world of horror. Authors such as Charlaine Harris, Scott Smith, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kelley Armstrong, Michael Koryta and Dana Cameron all contributed fantastic tales. Shiny happy vampires with fawning girlfriends will not be found within these pages—these authors have reclaimed the true horror of the vampire. In fact, more than a few drew on various types of early mythology to re-imagine the modern vampire, breathing fresh life and perspective into the genre.
Bibliophiles will love the tale “Paper Cuts” by Gary A. Braunbeck. Remember when we burned those vampires years ago? And buried the ashes? Well those ashes grew into thirsty trees, which were eventually cut down to make paper. And now those books are awfully thirsty…

Charlaine Harris’s story “Miss Fondevant” features…

Ive always been one to follow my heart and my feelings and lately I feel I’ve been call to do what it is I’m doing now. Coming out.

I’ve constantly pushed my friends and strangers who read my writings and social network posts to live truthfully, honestly, authentically, and with love and compassion and I feel the world needs a little bit more authenticity. I need it from myself. So this is me practicing what I preach. Hopefully the few pages of this post inspires someone to live a more authentic life as well, or at least not want to kill themselves for being different.

NBC did not “cancel” Hannibal.

Well, okay, that’s maybe a bit confusing. NBC did in fact announce that Season 3 would be the end of the show’s run on the network, following a slide from “problematic” to “abysmal” demographic ratings this summer. But while the rhetoric of cancellation was perhaps logically used to describe this decision, the simple fact is that NBC does not have the authority to cancel Hannibal. They are, in this case, one licensee of an international co-production, who Entertainment Weekly has revealed is paying only $185,000—this is absurdly low for a broadcast series, even in summer—in order to air season three of the show produced by Gaumont International Television. And so what’s really happening here is that Gaumont and its other producing partners—including Sony Pictures Television, who distributes the series and co-produces through its AXN international cable network—are losing their U.S. distributor.
