Whether or not you’ve been following the news out of Munich about a possible ceasefire in the Syrian civil war, there’s no way you haven’t heard about the refugee crisis. The war, which has been going on for nearly 5 years, can be blamed for the large number of Syrians […]

Downton Abbey Preview: “Season 6, Episode 6”

I can’t be the only one who was a bit horrified by the violent turn that dinner took last week. I mean, it seemed a tad dramatic — Robert spitting blood over Cora, himself, the table, the floor and everyone who tried to help him. But he’d been ignoring his […]

Colony Preview: “Blind Spot”

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started watching this show, but I have to say I underestimated Colony. Hey, I’m willing to admit when I’m wrong. Even though I’m a pretty big fan of Carlton Cuse and loved everything the cast had to say about the series […]

Downton Abbey: The End of an Era

Or “The Beginning of the End?” I have a lot of feelings about the end of this series, as I’m sure we all do. For the most part, I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the Crawley and their extended family which, of course, includes the servants. There have definitely been […]
