These men in powerful positions are a hot mess. I’m glad these women feel brave enough to not “take it” anymore, and speak up. Nothing I hear surprises me anymore. Right on ladies, right on!November 30, 2017 at 11:22 am #4577
Yes! I definitely feel the change in the air as more women are speaking up and action is being taken. Just seeing some of the old clips about Matt Lauer today gives it a different perspective. The clip of Katie Couric talking about his butt pinching was an annoying habit — that was what, 5 years ago? People barely blinked an eye…..now? People are paying more attention.February 3, 2018 at 8:38 am #4771
This 2nd season of Victoria has been better than the first. It’s still fairly boring compared to other historicals I watch, but it is better and more interesting this time around. The production is good, it’s just not that interesting of a story and it can be slow and boring in pace & feel.April 4, 2018 at 5:46 am #4877
I grew up watching Roseanne, so have been enjoying the new episodes. None of my fave shows are on right now, so I’ve had more time to read at night 🙂 I used to love Trading Spaces, so I’ll definitely be watching that when it comes back on this weekend.April 9, 2018 at 7:18 am #4893
I am watching the Howard’s End adaptation on Starz. I think it’s pretty good so far. I like the book, and always liked the 1992 movie version. Another historical for me! 🙂April 9, 2018 at 11:35 am #4895
Ohhhh, I was going to look into that.April 10, 2018 at 5:30 am #4897
It’s worth a look if you like the story, and want to see another adaptation. I think they are following the book pretty well so far. I like the female cast. I love Julia Ormond. Used to love her back in the day, so nice to see her. And Tracey Ullman in a dramatic role is always awesome. Not a huge fan of the male cast. I don’t like Matthew Macfadyen much. I hated him as D’Arcy in the Keira Knightley P&P, and I think he’s miscast here too. Still worth a watch though!May 16, 2018 at 10:22 am #5009
Watching the Masterpiece adaptation of Little Women that started Sunday night. I like it so far. It is a good adaptation. Little Women has never been one of my favorite books or stories, and I don’t love the previous movie adaptations. But, Masterpiece always does such a good job, I can’t help but like it. If you like the book or any of the other movie versions, definitely check this one out.July 17, 2018 at 5:26 am #5126
I can not wait for the next Poldark season to start! The book this next season is based on has been my favorite in the series so far. So, I can’t wait to see how it comes to life. I believe they will only make one more season after this season, and then the show will be over. While there are still several more books in the series, the time jumps pretty far ahead, and I guess the show will end before that happens. I’m enjoying it while I can!
I also can’t wait for the next Outlander season, the next Versailles season, I’m still waiting for the Wolf Hall sequel, and OMG The Last Kingdom of course (which I think is filming now).
All of my historical shows haha! 🙂 I will be on the lookout for any new, promising historical series that come up.
What are you looking forward to seeing this fall?August 2, 2018 at 9:03 am #5132
I’m not taking on anything new at this point. But I’m looking forward to the return of my Chicago shows and MNF. 🙂
