The Fantastical and Felicitous Fictional Character Blog Tag

Emily of the delightful blog The Altogether Unexpected included me in this fun tag! It’s been a while since I got to really fangirl on this blog (and I get to do it again next time for my Ultimate Doctor Who Recap Post, yippee!). I’m so excited about finally getting around to answering her questions! (This will be a long post, so if you’re not interested … Read More The Fantastical and Felicitous Fictional Character Blog Tag

TV Review: Victoria, Season 3

After a week’s respite from blogging, I’m happy to report that 1) I’m officially a Camp NaNoWriMo winner, 2) I finished Victoria: Season 3, and 3) I SAW AVENGERS: ENDGAME. Y’all need to give me another week to process (and recover from) Endgame before I share my review, haha. As for Camp NaNo, I’m thrilled with my results, but not quite ready to share … Read More TV Review: Victoria, Season 3

Music Review: Doctor Who Series 5-9

I’m pretty sure I mentioned in a previous post that my mom and I have been watching Doctor Who together–and it has been fantastic. Her no-nonsense commentary and her indignation if ever I fail to warn her about a Scary Moment are worth their weight in gold. We love Eleven and Twelve the best, agree that Donna Noble and Bill Potts are the most … Read More Music Review: Doctor Who Series 5-9

Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

Last week I just had zero blogging inspiration. If I don’t have anything to say then I’d better not say anything at all. But then this week, we had a serious health scare/crisis with my grandfather. He got out of a very successful surgery just this afternoon, and he’s doing great–but needless to say, I’ve been very preoccupied over the past few days. Add … Read More Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

TV Review: “Newhart” (OR, This Is Better Than Therapy)

Are you depressed? Anxious? Needing some rest and relaxation from creative endeavors, work-related stress, heat exhaustion, and/or the looming immediacy of upcoming weddings, holidays, and other various and sundry Social Occasions? Then look no further for a half-hour’s respite than Newhart*, a sitcom from the 1980’s about a city-slicker writer and his wife who run a bed-and-breakfast in rural Vermont. This has become an end-of-the-day ritual … Read More TV Review: “Newhart” (OR, This Is Better Than Therapy)

TV Review: “All Creatures Great and Small”

We’re back into the swing of things here at my house: my siblings’ “summer holiday” is over and they’re back to school, which means I’m back to my old writing schedule. I finished my fanfic novelette a couple of weeks ago, just in time to turn my full attention to a new and very intriguing idea that popped into my head at the beginning of … Read More TV Review: “All Creatures Great and Small”

TV Review: Doctor Who Series 10

I always said I wanted to finish out Peter Capaldi’s run as the Twelfth Doctor–and I’m proud to announce I finally worked up the courage to do the thing: I’ve seen Doctor Who: Series 10*. And yes, my emotions felt like they’d been run through one of those old-timey laundry wringers by the end–BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. Personally, I didn’t think Series 10 … Read More TV Review: Doctor Who Series 10

TV Review: Doctor Who, Series 9

Last week I reviewed Doctor Who: Series 8, Peter Capaldi’s first season as the Twelfth Doctor. As promised, this week I’m delving into Doctor Who: Complete Series 9*, Jenna Coleman’s last season as Clara Oswald. Series 9 wowed me from the get-go in ways that Series 8 hadn’t. In fact, it felt much more similar to Matt Smith’s final season and Jenna Coleman’s first. The … Read More TV Review: Doctor Who, Series 9

TV Review: Doctor Who, Series 8

I have to admit, I’m so excited about posting my first review on this new blog. I’m double-excited because it’s all about my new favorite show–and triple-excited because it’s all about my new favorite show’s first season with my new favorite Doctor! My last Doctor Who review focused on Doctor Who: Series Seven, Part Two*, starring Matt Smith (AKA Prince Philip in The Crown) as the … Read More TV Review: Doctor Who, Series 8
