WITCHES OF THE EAST END, Episode 11

This episode lands us in 1848 Baltimore. Joanna, Wendy and Freya are looking for a very powerful weapon that will destroy dear old dad. Present day Joanna, Wendy and Freya have twelve hours to locate this weapon while avoiding bumping into their 1848 selves. During this jaunt back in time we are able to see Wendy and Joanna in very different roles. 1848 Joanna is upset over Victor leaving her and has decided to drown her sorrow in heroin. She’s basically a useless addict who leaves Wendy to run the brothel the sisters own. Freya and Ingrid work at the bar/brothel as well, reading tarot cards. Wendy is the level headed, take-charge sister in this era. While working in the [...]  Read more

MASTERS OF SEX, Season Finale

Kennedy’s presidential campaign and inauguration was the backdrop to this week’s finale. It ushered in change as relationships evolved and this season ended. Six weeks have passed since the last episode. Over time, Masters and Virginia have observed what has and hasn’t worked to help Bill’s impotence. A succession of nights devoted to non-sexual touching, touching genitals but no sex, and finally sexual intercourse may have cured Masters’ sexual dysfunction. After Masters discusses the idea that he and Virginia may have cured impotence, Bill dreams he is thrown a ticker tape parade. He gets into a car with Virginia as they are hailed for their success, but the car suddenly stops when Libby appears in the middle of the road. [...]  Read more

STIRRING UP TROUBLE by Kimberly Kincaid

Looking for inspiration… Sloane Russo’s turned a decade of crazy jobs and whimsical travel into a career writing steamy novels set in exotic places. Trouble is, Sloane’s flat broke now—and she can’t channel sun-drenched beaches in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The only fast cash in town comes with some seriously distracting temptation: Gavin Carmichael, hot, handsome and oh-so-hard-headed. Gavin isn’t the impulsive Don Juan of Sloane’s novels. He’s raising his thirteen-year-old half-sister, and he’s pretty sure he’s supposed to act like he’s never heard of fun. Sloane is way too sexy and irresponsible to be his idea of a good tutor for Bree, but the unpredictable anti-nanny may be irresistible as well. I have a couple of Kincaid’s books sitting [...]  Read more

HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, Series Premiere

It’s no exaggeration to say that How to Get Away with Murder has been one of the most anticipated — not to mention heavily promoted — new series for fall 2014.  The city has been littered with billboards of Viola Davis looking fierce in her red leather jacket.  It was given the coveted 10 PM slot after two other series created by Shonda Rhimes, Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal,  creating a powerhouse line-up. Although How to Get Away with Murder was created by Peter Nowak, the show features a strong female lead, twisty plotting, and rapid pace-dialogue, all features we’ve come to know and love from Shonda Rhimes. So did the show live up to the hype? The episode started with [...]  Read more

SCANDAL, Season 4 Premiere

All summer we were teased by #WhereInTheWorldIsOliviaPope splashed across beach blimps and, of course, the pop culture terrain of cyberspace.  Not since Dallas’s legendary “Who Shot JR” cliffhanger has a series kept TV viewers in such a hot and bothered state of anticipation. At the close of Scandal’s season three, DC powerhouse crisis manager, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), weary and dispirited from her on-again off-again affair with married lover, President Fitzgerald Grant—Fitz as played by Tony Goldwyn—as well as the omnipresent machinations of her terrorist mother and B613 director father (think CIA but off-book and on steroids) flies off to parts unknown with lover, Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), the Navy captain turned B613 operative and, later, its director. Repeatedly Jake [...]  Read more

BURYING WATER by K.A. Tucker

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away. Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts [...]  Read more

Club Hopping: Jamie K. Schmidt’s Favorite Clubs

Summer is over and it’s back to the routine of school and autumn days.  I can look back fondly at all the beach parties and cook outs with friends and family.  Thankfully, there will always be night clubs that let us have some rowdy fun indoors once the weather turns chilly.  Here are some of my favorite bars and clubs: The Adventurer’s Club – Downtown Disney, Orlando FL. Unfortunately, this club closed in 2008 and lives on only in my memory.  But I remember with glee sitting on the bar stool that veeeeery slowly lowered and raised and drinking rum punch from a plastic monkey’s head.  Congaloosh! 2.  Minus 5° Ice Bar – Las Vegas, NV The temperature is set [...]  Read more
