Well, it’s decided! Sort of. I’ve packed away most of my belongings and squirreled them away in the crawlspace. This week, the place gets a top to bottom interior cleaning, an exterior power wash, and then, on Friday, the stagers come in to prepare the place for showing. The house goes on the market this […]
In a year without a “Hamilton,” the races for the 2017 Tony Awards had seemed fraught with unpredictably. But while there were a couple of dark horses (“Come From Away,” “A Doll’s House, Part 2”) giving the frontrunners (“Dear Evan Hansen,” “Oslo”) a run for their money, the night played out largely as expected. Even……
by Kiersten Hallie Krum I was five years old in 1977 when I jumped off my older sister’s canopy bed and sprained my arm. Hers was a tall bed, tall enough to house a trundle bed underneath, and was as high as I could get at just past 9 PM on a Friday evening. You […]
I’ve been accused (and perhaps fairly so) of reading too much into Doctor Who’s recent episodes, seeing social commentary where I wanted to. As such, I hesitate to share my views on “The Empress of Mars” since it struck me as having a slight Brexit feel to it. It’s not as overtly about anything current […]
I have been researching Timeless’ destiny but have been coming up empty handed. That is, until today. A Bing search yielded this article, about 7 days old. At the very least, I now know that Timeless is on the “bubble”. By now, most shows have either been renewed or sent to cancelation hell. NBC has certainly gotten hopes up by ordering more episodes. The series complied and Timeless managed a full season with an unfinished story. Timeless’ basic storyline is not a new idea, but a fresh take on time travel. It has an ensemble of excellent actors backed up by script writers weaving their magic for each foray into a different time in history. We have a team with established chemistry: Lucy Preston, Rufus Carlin and Wyatt Logan. The plotline from IMDb states: “A trio travels through time to battle a master criminal out to alter human history in this drama.”. This master criminal is Garcia Flynn. This series has kept me glued to my tv and DVR. The ratings in that coveted 18-49 demographic have been fairly stable with some slight dips. I think that speaks well for a freshman drama. NBC, please don’t let Timeless slip down the “bubble” into cancelation oblivion! – M Barnett

The season finale of NBC‘s Timeless aired tonight, so you will be wondering if the show is coming back for a second season. As of now, the time-travelling show starring Abigail Spencer and Matt Lanter has yet to be renewed for a second season and its prospects are looking dim. Although the ratings for the show haven’t been great, its creators are confident that there will be more episodes in Fall 2017 and that’s how they wrote the season one finale…
With the turn of a TV dial, Mary turned the world and my childhood on with her smile.
A constant presence on my TV screen, Mary Tyler Moore and her winning smile, shepherded me through my Kennedy era childhood, my tumultuous teens and straight into my early adulthood.
Who didn’t love Mary as Laura Petrie, the New Rochelle housewife who defiantly traded in the per-requisite starched dress and pearls of other TV housewives for a more fetching pair of capris. After several seasons of stuffy and often stilted TV sitcom moms like June Cleaver and Margaret Anderson, Laura was a breath of fresh suburban…
