Happy almost Thanksgiving! The day on which we hopefully realize how much we do actually have in our lives and to whom we owe them. For me, it’s God, always and forever, and I’m amazed he gets me out of the messes I make — and I make a lot.
Syfy’s Haven: So, so good! Give it a try on Netflix if you haven’t checked it out yet. I will be back next week with more thoughts on Season 5.
Book recommend: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel is a wonderful read full of thoughtful moments and a new angle on the pandemic-ending-civilization storyline. I’m enjoying it so much, I don’t want to finish it because then it would be over.
The Five Fingers: Ok, I said I was going to review this K-drama, but getting to episode five ending up being torture — too much soap opera and not enough interesting and/or funny drama. Plus, I couldn’t take anymore kid crying. It started to make my ears ring. I love that it’s about piano prodigy brothers, and maybe I’ll give it a shot again sometime, but this just wasn’t for me.
CW’s Reign: Wow. Love it. Addicting guilty pleasure starring Adelaide Kane and the awesome Megan Follows (Anne of Green Gables). It loosely (and I stress loosely) follows the story of Mary Queen of Scots. The costumes are Renaissance Fair cool and the music is contemporary. The content is rather adult, especially for younger viewers, but it’s a compelling story of a girl learning how to rule as a queen, with all of the responsibilities and heartbreaking choices it entails.
Until next week,
