My Top Ten Moments from Outlander ep 1x06

My Top Ten Moments from Outlander ep 1×06

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here are times when I retroactively want to slap myself in the face for starting a weekly column that’s meant to be all humor and silliness and fun because nights like tonight happen and I JUST WANT TO CRY QUIETLY IN A CORNER ALONE, OK?

Everyone take a deep breath with me.

That feels a bit better. Thank you, Ben.

What a bitch of an episode, amirite?

It was really difficult…

TARDIS Talks: S8E3 – Robot of Sherwood

TARDIS Talks: S8E3 – Robot of Sherwood

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s time for TARDIS Talks this week and your TN TARDIS TEAM is super excited to talk about the Doctor’s visit to Sherwood Forest. There were way too many times as we chatted that the exact. same. things. were said. It’s like Lorena and I are truly of one mind when it comes to Doctor Who. In fact, sometimes it’s scary that we’ll make the same obscure reference. A little…

Why You Should Netflix Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Why You Should Netflix Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I never watched Buffy growing up because I lived on a farm with no TV reception and only watched NOVA.

Wat_buffysource

I know, just forget it. So all of my 90s nostalgia comes from watching these shows as an adult later on, and remembering what the 90s IRL were like. I’ve never seen My So Called Life, either. Next on my list! Anyways, it was Jamie who finally convinced me that Buffy was not like Clueless,…

Things My Husband Says During Outlander: Rent

Things My Husband Says During Outlander: Rent

Blurtlander is back. This time he doesn’t have Mrs. Fitz to confound him, so he has to settle for Dougal speaking Gaelic instead.

If you are new to Things My Husband Says, here are episodes One, Two, Three and Four. Pay special attention to the disclaimer in week 2. And my constant in real life disclaimer: All opinions are his own. I do not condone.

Tom Hiddleston Sings at a Country Music Festival, Is All Things Amazing

Tom Hiddleston Sings at a Country Music Festival, Is All Things Amazing by @jamiewhitebread

[dropcap]S[/dropcap]omeone needs to stop this man from doing these things to us. It’s getting out of control. He has to know, and it’s like he doesn’t even care at all. What a sadist. Lorena and I talked about I Saw the Light, the Hank Williams biopic that Tom Hiddleston is going to be starring in, and it seems that he’s well immersed in his preparation. This past weekend he sang some of Hank…

Married At First Sight: The Finale! Who stayed married? Were you RIGHT!? #MAFS

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ell friends, we’ve made it to the end, or beginning of the journey for our Married at First Sight couples. 10 weeks ago when Mande, Tia and a few other friends sent a NY Post article my way saying “Can you believe this show?” or “This is valuing marriage?” Now, 10 weeks later, we’ve gone from this is the craziest concept for a reality show to getting on the emotional roller…

One episode left of Finding Carter - Are you watching? (You Should Be!)

One episode left of Finding Carter - Are you watching? You should be! @finding_carter

One of the surprising finds during this summer hiatus on TV is Finding Carter on MTV. Somewhere between the rippling muscles of Teen Wolf and the trashy exploits of their Teen Moms, MTV sneaked in this emotionally honest show about a teenager whose life just got yanked out from under her.

Carter, played by Kathryn Prescott, is a bit of a wild teen super closer to her mother. Suddenly she…

From Bodice to Breech Ripping: Regency Romance for EVERY body

From Bodice to Breech Ripping: Regency Romance for EVERY body

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] asked for one regency romance recommendation months ago, and it led me down a Victorian rabbit hole that essentially consumed my summer leisure time. (And in regency romance terms, the entire second half of that compound sentence was a rock-hard euphemism.)

It started off pretty mainstream, but whoa doggy, where it went. Just trust me when I say, these Victorian boys and…
