TV Review: Victoria Season 2

My parents gave me Victoria Season 2 for my 26th birthday! After living on spoilers for so long, it was SO SATISFYING to finally get to see it for myself. And no, the spoilers did not ruin the experience. If anything, they prepared me for certain heartbreaks, objectionable content, and lots of fluff. (Because I need to be emotionally prepared even...

Another Period Drama Tag!

My dear friend Evangeline from Over The Hills sent me this tag--and I admit I was very excited about it. I did a similar tag last January just as I was getting into Band of Brothers, and the past twelve months or so have been full of watching (or re-watching) other great period dramas. Rule #1: Answer... Continue Reading →

victoria + the crown

It's taken me a while, thanks to the fact that it took so long for the DVD to be released, but at long last, I've seen The Crown! My sister Anna got Season 1 for Christmas while I got my own copy of Victoria's Season 1. We've been very busy "Queening," as Matt Smith's Prince Philip would... Continue Reading →

A Holly-Jolly Marvel Movie Tag

Actually I'm not sure what's so holly-jolly about this post except that I'm full of Christmas cheer these days--and on that happy note, I was thrilled when Jamie of Through Two Blue Eyes tagged me in this fun challenge! Without further ado...allons-y! (That's French for "let's go." *wink*) (And by the way, all of the... Continue Reading →

currently: returning to the TARDIS

You never know what things will lead to, y'know? I watched Victoria a little over a month ago, fell head-over-heels in love with the story of one of England's greatest queens, and came up with a delightful idea for a NaNoWriMo project. Which, by the way, is coming along swimmingly. I'm working on my synopsis (somehow it's... Continue Reading →


I'm officially calling 2017 "The Year of the Historical Miniseries," haha! First I fell in love with Band of Brothers. Then I saw Wolf Hall (which was good, though I had my quibbles). Then my parents and I started a re-watch of Call the Midwife (and it's as wonderful as ever). And now, I just finished this beautiful, inspiring miniseries: I've already... Continue Reading →

Mini Movie/TV Reviews for the summer

Summer is, to be perfectly honest, my least favorite time of the year. The heat is sticky and smothering, and school is out...which means there isn't nearly as much structure as Yours Truly normally enjoys. I'm remembering some words of wisdom my World War II-veteran friend told me last week at church, though. When I... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: “Wonder Woman”

"I am Diana, Princess of Themyscira, daughter of Hippolyta...and in the name of all that is good, your wrath upon this world is over." With that line, Wonder Woman pretty much guaranteed her cinematic future. If box office sales over the past few weeks are any indication, people are gonna line up to see Justice League in November just so they can... Continue Reading →
