Hello, unicorns. Why, yes, I do rather enjoy using “SCIENCE!” in a headline rather than typing it like a reasonable person. By the way, did you know that October 22 is International All Caps Day? WHY YES IT IS. That said, let’s shout about this week’s news, shall we?
Hello, all! Time for episode nine of season two of Penny Dreadful! We’re just one episode away from the season finale, and trust me, the suspense in this one is enough to keep you up all night!
Vanessa tells Malcolm, Professor Lyle, and Victor about her time with the Cut-Wife and what the Nightcomers really are: witches and evil spirits bound to do the devil’s bidding to serve their own ends. Victor is reluctant to believe Vanessa, but when she tells him that these witches do walk in London, he apologizes. Malcolm […]
Vanessa emerges from the bathroom, having just washed. She encounters Ethan in her bedroom, and he asks her about the scorpion sigil she had scrawled on the floor in blood. She is unwilling to speak of what it is at first, but Ethan is determined to help her and begs her to tell him what […]
It’s now 1536. Anne Boleyn has lost the child she was carrying and her marriage to the king is falling apart. The members of the court see this, and it’s only a matter of time before, and it’s common knowledge that the king is very interested in Jane Seymour. Following Henry VIII’s instructions, Cromwell begins […]
Well, Persephoneers, I hate to break it to you, but this is the last episode of Downton Abbey for Season 5. And the series is ending after its sixth season, which is next year. All my creys!
Guess what? We’re on episode seven of Downton Abbey, which means we’re in the home stretch! And we have all of the staples of a primetime soap opera in this episode: a wedding that may or may not occur, opposition to a marriage, an announcement from a killjoy, a mother bitchier than Joan Crawford in […]
This week’s Downton Abbey had it all: a breakup, a makeup, wedding bells for one couple, the possible death knell of another, a secret being let out, and of course, what would an extra special episode be without someone calling out a racist, classist asshole and the message that reading is fundamental? And we bid […]
To start, Lady Edith receives a telegram while the family is at breakfast talking about their plans for the day, and her editor is coming to visit her. Cora seems to be the only person who feels bad for Edith. Of course, Lady Mary wins the contest for snark: “What did she think? That he […]
Hello, all! Time for this week’s recap of Downton Abbey. We’re on episode five of the season, and the drama just doesn’t stop. Some of it is a little deja vu (fisticuffs over the love of a woman, perhaps), but we get rid of dreary old Miss Bunting!
Happy Wednesday, all! Time for our weekly Downton Abbey recap. Believe it or not, we’re on episode 4, and we’re halfway through the season!
Hey there, cats and kittens! Time for another recap of Downton Abbey. Hopefully you have your cup of tea and your helping of spotted dick ready for this one.
We pick up where we left off last week, soon after the fire. As she and Mrs. Hughes are clearing out Edith’s room, Anna discovers a photograph.
Downton Abbey is back for its fifth season, and Sunday night’s episode started everything off with a bang. It’s 1924, and a new prime minister, who is affiliated with the Labour Party, has been elected, and change seems to be the only constant as life progresses onward after the Great War. But the drama and […]
Summer’s over, and I’m back in England after four weeks of touring the old countries. We returned to glorious sunshine, well-rested and happy kids, but still…
