This Is Us 2×03 “Déjà Vu” Recap – The Past Reflects the Present

As much as we like to believe the past doesn’t matter or that we should just let it go, that’s just not always true or the easiest thing to do. What happens in our past is what shapes us into the people we become. Some events we can grow from. Other events we can’t even […]

This Is Us 2×02: “A Manny-Splendored Thing” Recap

In a surprising turn of events, I didn’t cry like a baby during this week’s episode of “This Is Us.” That’s not to say it wasn’t emotional, because let’s be honest, every episode is emotional. “A Manny-Splendored Thing” just wasn’t tear-inducing emotional. Which is kind of weird since it was a family gathering of sorts, […]

This Is Us – “A Father’s Advice” and a Father’s Demise

I hope no one is expecting season 2 of This Is Us to be anything less than emotional torture because you’d be wrong. The first episode, “A Father’s Advice”, is proof of that. Heck, even that title makes you feel all the feels. The themes of the hour: being imperfectly perfect and how dreams can […]

One Last Howler Con Review: An Experience We’ll Never Forget

For the past couple of years Amy and I have lived vicariously through those who attended a Teen Wolf convention. The cons were either too far away – usually out of the country – or simply out of our budget, especially if we were already attending a different con closer to us. We knew one […]

The old Taylor Swift is dead. “Look What You Made Me Do” Review

Clears your head, and, anyway… missing someone makes you remember why you loved them in the first place.” – Something Beautiful As you may or may not know, over the last year, I have read and reviewed each of Jamie McGuire’s Maddox series, which I’m kind of obsessed with.
