Earlier this week, Hillary reviewed Galavant which reminded me how great A Knight’s Tale was. So in all it’s early 2000s glory, I revisit this magnificent celebration of b-list supporting character actors and anachronistic music scores.
My wife and I are finally catching up on Breaking Bad. We are only half way through the second season. Our trip to Albuquerque kind of spurred us to watch it again.

With school starting and Labor Day weekend already gone by, it can mean only one glorious thing. The fall TV season is coming. Before, fall TV season used to be a much more anticipated event than it is now.
