Thor’s Day – Bigger, Better, and OMG Fall TV

It’s Thor’s Day and in some ways, it’s the day we’ve been waiting for, because everything is back on television. In a little over 35 days it will also be the day before Thor 2 hits theaters and I have a feeling my brain will pop. Let’s pause for a moment to look at a preview of Thor 2. But in addition to the beauty of Thor, we’re adding back into the television watchpot: The Vampire Diaries The Originals (just for tonight and then it moves to Tuesdays next week) Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Big Bang Theory The Crazy […]

Vampire Diaries Post Mortem: The Ties That Bind

Okay, I am going to commit a little bit of  Post Mortem Faux Paus this week.  Typically, I like to recap it, run you through the episode, a sort of play by play of the wild (and yes, snarky) thoughts that go through my head while I am indulging in my absolute favorite show.  Yes, that jury is in (in case there was ever any doubt), The Vampire Diaries is one of the best television shows I have ever watched, I am totally addicted, I literally schedule my Thursdays around it and you better have blood or bone showing if you […]
