This was taken by C4C.
The man was home for the entire weekend.
We were actually in bed at the same time...
Needless to say we had a very nice weekend.
It was great to have company.
By that I mean the man.
Most of my time of late is spent alone...
watching TV a lot
while I crochet or write or read.
Unless I am on the computer filling out applications.
TV choices were sad for a while there.
But new shows have come onto the scene.
I'd gotten to the point where I had watched everything
offered in Xfintiy OnDemand
in the series section.
Being the old fairy tale lover who reads to children...
I like Once Upon A Time and Grimm a lot.
Grimm has the extra icing of being filmed in P'land.
Its fun to see my old haunts.
Both are new twists on fairy tales.
Two others that I am very excited about are
(more old haunts!)
and The River.
Both have a spacy sort of feel to them akin to
X-Files and Lost.
I'm up to snuff on all of these and have made copies to keep
for later reviewing.
When Alcatraz closed in the 60s... a bunch of the worst inmates vanished.
Now these men are popping back into the present and committing crimes.
A special task force is collecting them...
Who took them in the first place?
Why have they not aged?
Why are they killing certain people?
The River is about a family like
the crocodile guy and his family who made nature films.
The world watched their family grow up over the years.
Then the dad vanishes on a trip he made without the family
to make another documentary.
He is determined to be legally dead
and the family begins to go on with normal life.
Suddenly dad's beacon is activated...
and the family and old film crew
head off down to the river to find dear old dad.
That's when weird stuff begins to happen.
Is it voodoo or aliens?
Dad has tapes of dealings with natives on the river...
and their religious practices.
Something is attacking them...
Do they go home like normal people?
That wouldn't make much of a series.
There is another coming up.
It had a premiere in Jan. that I missed.
It will begin as a regular series on March 19th.
I think that I will like it a lot.
Do you watch any of these?
Can you suggest anything else?
Weird and scary are good.
Mystery is fun.
Or do you even have time for TV?
