Crowded is NOT a crowd pleaser

Hello my Halos,

I was just wondering if you’ve started watching the NBC show Crowded yet?

And, if so, were you just as confused as to why they even made this show as I am?

OK, so the premise of Crowded is that just when a middle-aged couple has gotten over there empty nest syndrome, back comes their millennials needing a place to stay and turning their party pad back into a crowded house.

I am back in love with Scandal.

I was getting a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach in Season 2 when the Mellie/Fitz/Olivia triangle was front in center

Scandal and I, we broke up in Season 3 when Olivia forgot her place as the Other Woman.

It is no secret that I loath President Fitz.

He reminds me of pampered royalty with no idea how . . . → Read More: I am back in love with Scandal

Television executives really do not understand us online streamers.

You can tell by the way they attempt to manipulate and control us.

My friend told me that Elena (Nina Dobrev) was thinking of leaving Vampire Diaries apparently for a real life love affair gone wrong with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and my big response was….~shrug~…

Elena is my least favorite of the female actresses on the show (Bonnie (Kat Graham) being numero uno, then Caroline (Candice Accola)).

In fact, I have always said that Bonnie . . . → Read More: Elena can go on Vampire Diaries

How I Met Your Mother: The End, The Alternate, and Robin Sparkles

Thanks to Amazon Prime (or Netflix, if you prefer), I have finally watched the How I Met Your Mother finale.

I must join the horde of fanaddicts who abhorred the How I Met Your Mother ending.

I was ok with them killing of The Mother.

Veronica Mars: The Show, The Movie, The Book

A long time ago, we use to be friends, Roni Mars and I…

…until the station pulled the plug and left me hankering for a real resolution to the series.

Official Trailer of Fifty Shades of Grey

Let me preface this by saying that I have yet to read even a single sentence of the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy of books.

So when I clicked on this link for the trailer of the movie, I was so less than impressed.

The woman in the trailer looked more beaten down than curious or intrigued.

And the man…I guess the purpose was to make him . . . → Read More: Official Trailer of Fifty Shades of Grey
