Television Graveyard- plot 8, The Gates

19 May

One of the great things about the end of the “normal” TV season is that it gives a chance to sit back and enjoy, via Hulu or Netflix, a show that ended years ago or that you may have missed. In my case, I have been enjoying a short lived supernatural series from 2010- The Gates.

My Latest Obsession- part 3

7 Sep

And I’m back! I know… you’re dying to find out what made the cut for my obsession with Karl Urban, part 3. You’ve read parts 1 & 2, right?

It’s an odd mix, I admit, but overall a good collection of flicks. Continue reading

See, I’ve never been one for the whole vampire-saga romance bullhonkey that seems to have everybody’s panties in a wad. It’s just not for me. I’m more of a Breaking Bad and Homeland kind of girl. But yet…. here I am. Having to marathon through every single episode. So here’s been my answer to a lot of inquiries I’ve had recently, along with my answers: Continue reading

Why so sexy mister undead man?

26 Jun

Seriously… why are we so drawn to vampires? And now zombies- OK, maybe we aren’t attracted to zombies, but we are drawn to them (and no, please don’t start a conversation about bath salts here). And werewolves- OK, technically not undead but… OMG! what draws us to these creatures of the supernatural?

I really want to know.  Continue reading
