Garrison Keillor Ravinia

The joy of seeing “A Prairie Home Companion”

Change is inevitable as you grow up, but the one thing that stayed the same for me was Garrison Keillor. His radio variety show, “A Prairie Home Companion” was always a part of my childhood no matter what city I lived or how old I was. My parents loved the show, so on weekends, we […]

Chicago Fire 3×21, “We Called Her Jellybean”

Guys, I cannot rewatch the crossover. I’ve tried. I’ve fired up the DVR, I’ve pulled up the episodes on my computer, but I just can’t do it. It’s too painful. Where the previous two crossovers went for action, last week’s went for emotion- and I’m not talking overwhelming happiness, skittles and unicorns. I’m talking gut-wrenching […]

Last Tango in Halifax – Episode 3

Sarita and Jordan return to live-blog Last Tango in Halifax’s third episode. This is the first episode where the show shows its true dramatic leanings. The fun, quippy stuff is good, but the drama in this episode really shows the depths the cast have, and it was something that really helped elevate its game.  Jordan […]

10 Things We Will Miss About Peter Mills On Chicago Fire

Or really, what should be the recap for episode 3×20, “You Know Where To Find Me.” These past two weeks have been a perfect storm of sorts- a perfect, maddening, grasping-at-straws, throwing around ridiculous theories till we crack ourselves up-type storm. The home stretch of the season is not only a TERRIBLE time for a […]

Chicago Fire 3×19, “I Am the Apocalypse”

Enjoy your weekly reminder that Gabby and Jay once dated. I KNOW. “Gina, they were just a fling! They’re not relevant anymore!” Umm, I beg to differ. They’re super relevant when promo pics like this are coming down the pipeline: WILL. NO. You are NOT allowed to be Eskimo QUADRUPLETS with YOUR BROTHER, Casey, and […]

Chicago Fire 3×18, “Forgiving, Relentless, Unconditional”

Until Dawsey are reunited (and maybe even after), I’m going to start each recap going forward with a 50 First Dates-type refresher. YOU GUYS. DAWSON AND HALSTEAD DATED. Accept it. It happened. So many people have forgotten this ship that this was the only video I could find on YouTube. Apparently,  myself and the person […]

Chicago P.D. 2×15, “What Puts You on That Ledge”

I’m behind again, and I picked the WRONG two episodes to be behind on. They were GOOOOOOOD. What did we miss? Antonio gettin’ his hookup on with a former colleague from Vice; Linstead being super flirty and adorable; This Burzek scene, this amazeballs Burzek scene, and this really cute Burzek scene. That last one was added […]
