An old-school crime procedural drama dating back to the days of Without a Trace and CSI that I actually hadn’t tried out until now! Love the use of flashbacks and the way that characters merge with their younger-selves. The best thing about the show is its use of music ……. : ♫ Boston – More […]

Spotlight: Lady Antebellum

Lady Antebellum are probably my favourite country band. They came onto my radar when I was first “discovering” country music and they only had one album out and I stumbled on I Run To You and then came the obsession with the Need You Now album.  They sort of faded away for me for awhile […]

Spotlight: 10 Fleetwood Mac Hidden Gems

Having seen them live this week, I think it’s fair to say that I am on a bit of a Fleetwood Mac kick and whenever I dig through their discography I am constantly astounded by the number of strong non-single album tracks they have that I absolutely adore and yet no one (at least no […]

Twister (1996)

One Sentence Summary: Sparks fly between two exes as they chase tornadoes across the state.  So do cows. Review: So the interweb tells me it’s not cool to like this film.  Apparently there is no plot and the science is all wrong. I don’t care. There are lots and lots of reasons why this is […]

It Had to Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips (1994)

The Windy City isn’t quite ready for Phoebe Somerville—the outrageous, curvaceous New York knockout who has just inherited the Chicago Stars football team.
