Found another way to kill an afternoon bingeing on a miniseries on Amazon Prime. May Day has five really spooky episodes each at about an hour per show. Think of it like Twin Peaks, WA meets Dorking, Surrey with a … Continue reading

The Lost Boys (1987) Reviewed by Anita ***

The 80’s was a fabulous decade of hair bands, plastic everything, day-glow colors, and the  best vampire movie ever called The Lost Boys–directed by Joel Schumacher. Schumacher is the director who totally nailed the teenage vampire genre. He blended horror, … Continue reading

Commentary by Anita: Sesame Street Parodies Game of Thrones (2019)*****

Maybe the last season of GoT was a bust but Sesame Street has made up for it 100 times fold, trust me. I ran across it by accident while flipping channels. I watch a great deal of public TV as … Continue reading

Good Omens (2019) Reviewed by Anita *****

This is an enchanting tale of bungling Armageddon. This particular interpretation of how the world would come undone (aside of the actual Biblical version) was first a novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Every chapter is hilarious, I laughed … Continue reading

Game of Thrones (05-19-2019)-Reviewed by Anita **

Really? Did you honestly feel the last episode of this epic story was justified in how it was done? Have you read the books? Yes, I did like it-like it, but then again I hated it. I come to this … Continue reading

Joshua Silver in “The Moonstone” (2016) – reviewed by George

After enjoying last week’s movie-length version so much, I was only somewhat excited about this miniseries version: five episodes of about 45 minutes each. But I guess the only reason to remake something is the thought that you can do … Continue reading

Olivia Vinall is “The Woman in White” (2017) – reviewed by George

This second 5-hour miniseries version of the book has much to recommend it. Important (to me at least): the same actress plays both Laura Fairlie and Anne Catherick. And further, Count Fosco is much younger, Frederick Fairlie is still neurotic … Continue reading

Deirdra Morris is “The Woman in White”: Part One (1982) – reviewed by George

This BBC miniseries is rather astounding. All I’ve ever known of the tale is the Warner Bros. movie I reviewed last week, and the differences here are unsettling. First, Anne Catherick and Laura Fairlie are played by two different actresses. … Continue reading
