Lucifer Season 4 (Now on Netflix)

I discovered Luciver a few months ago after the first three seasons were dumped onto Netflix (they were originally aired on Fox). And this a show that’s, well, not good precisely but bad in a specific way that makes it hard to stop watching. You’ve got the literal devil, Lucifer, teamed up with an LA […]


Loved this new superhero movie from the DC universe! As always, I was unfamiliar with the comic book when I went into the movie. Basically, Shazam! is a 14-year-old kid who gets imbued with superpowers that make him into “the best version of himself” which is, apparently, in his late twenties. So it’s kinda like […]

The NEW Roswell, Season 1

After 20 years, the CW decided to revisit an old favorite of mine — Roswell — and of course I had to watch. There was no choice, really. The original series is one of the few shows I own, in its entirety, on DVD. So, how did the CW do? I’m split right down the […]

Review: The Haunting of Hill House (2018 Series)

Finished Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House today and…I really liked it!   I’m not usually into horror, but I happened to have seen the movie version when I was younger and found it to be better than average. Plus it’s Halloween tomorrow so in the spirit of the season, why not give it a […]

Charmed Reboot

Apparently CW decided to reboot Charmed, and given that I’ve watched the original series more than once, I kinda had to check out the first episode. My reaction was…mixed. Positives: 1. This new show is unabashedly political, taking on #metoo with almost brutal head-on force. 2. It also ups the ante on the original show’s feminist themes […]

Making Use of Feedback

If you are serious about becoming a writer then at some point you will need to show others your work and ask them what they think. When your pet project comes back, scarred beyond recognition in red ink, you have three choices: You can quit writing. You can decide to be a poor, misunderstood artist […]

Honest Feedback

One of the most important skills that a writer can learn is how to provide effective feedback. If you want your writing to climb out of interns’ slush piles and into the hands of editors, or even if your stories are ready to become great rather than merely acceptable, you will need to show them […]

The Rain Season 1 Review

I love a good post-apocalypse. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen one, but I am sure that if I ever did, I would love it! In the meantime, I am hopelessly drawn to this genre. 🙂 The Rain wasn’t bad, honestly. In the post apocalypse genre, it rates far better than average. After the […]

A Plea for Help

  I am not sure if I had to pick a favorite Cassie Scot book if I could but if I did I think Frozen just may come out on top. But I don’t know as I have loved them all and would recommend all seven books to all fans of magic and the paranormal […]
