Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is ready to invade your brain

Last night I had the great pleasure of watching the World Premiere of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey at the Adler Planetarium. The Adler was one of just 10 places in the Country that was chosen to host the event, which was billed as the largest premiere for a television series in history. Cosmos, for those that do...

NBC's The New Normal is breathtakingly funny

I just finished watching NBC’s pilot episode of The New Normal. This show is absolutely hilarious. If the remaining season of the show is as fascinating as the first episode, NBC may have their version of Modern Family on the schedule. Of course, in my opinion, Modern Family quit being funny about two seasons ago.... Read more »

Friends: They were not there for my partner.

Friends: They were not there for my partner.
What does Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey, Chandler, and Ross all have in common? Well aside from being the characters in the hugely popular hit television series Friends, they were, until recently, unknown to my partner. I was absolutely shocked when I became aware of this fact. While watching reruns of the show on WGN one... Read more »

Living without cable television: Two months later...

It has been a while since Kyle and I said goodbye to Comcast. In a post from May 14, I explained why we were giving up cable for Amazon Prime and Hulu. The basic reasons were just that rates kept going up. Add that to the fact that we watch less and less television, and we could no... Read more »

Magic Mike: The movie equivalent of Shades of Gray?

Thumbnail image for 'Magic Mike: The movie equivalent of Shades of Gray?'
I think every woman and gay man I know will be going to see the movie Magic Mike. The movie is about an experienced stripper who takes a younger performer under his wing and teaches him how to party and make easy money. Of course, what the movie is really about, is watching a bunch... Read more »

Living without cable television: Not as hard as I thought!

Living without cable television: Not as hard as I thought!
The hubby and I are trying something out for a while to see if we like it. It all started because we got tired of paying Comcast over $100.00 a month for background noise. Rarely did we use Comcast for anything other than noise, and when we did want to watch television, we normally watched... Read more »

The Revolution is canceled!

The Revolution is canceled!
I am a bit sad to report that The Revolution has been canceled. The show will end on July 7th. When The Revolution began airing, I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, about a month ago I quit watching. They were making changes to the show that left me unentertained and uninformed. I was obviously not alone in... Read more »

Yearwood returns to television with new daytime show, new album in the works.

Yearwood returns to television with new daytime show, new album in the works.
For those of you who do not know, I am one of the biggest Trisha Yearwood fanatics ever. I have seen her in concert so many times, including once at the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. I own every CD she has ever released, including singles and international albums. Her cookbooks even proudly have a place... Read more »

Disney misses the mark with Beauty and the Beast in 3D

First things first, Kyle and I got to experience the AMC Loews Streets of Woodfield 20 Theater. Let me just say that the theater is absolutely gorgeous. I was so impressed. To be honest, and a bit small-townish, I think it is the first time I have ever seen a two-story movie theater. Add the... Read more »

ABC's The Revolution: Helpful tips from too many hosts...
ABC debuted The Revolution yesterday. The new show is geared toward viewers taking control of their own life. The tagline for the show is “it’s about you.” Since I started my New Year, New Me feature last week, I thought that the debut of  The Revolution may prove handy to me. Though it is very obvious that the... Read more »
